WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Congressman Brian Mast (R-FL) released the following statement regarding House Democrats’ party-line passage of the rule allowing for the approval of S. Con. Res 14, the Socialist Tax-And-Spending Spree Act:

“With the ongoing humanitarian crisis in Afghanistan, the fact that Democrats in DC are instead spending another $3.5 trillion on a socialist wishlist shows just how far they’ll go to enact their agenda.  At a time when Americans are already forced to spend more of their dollars due to record-breaking inflation, Democrats’ solution is to recklessly spend trillions more on policies like welfare without work requirements and amnesty for illegal immigrants.  Nancy Pelosi and her allies are completely out of touch with the American people.”
