Joyce Outlines Negative Impact of Inflationary $1.7 Trillion Spending Package on Ohio Families

WASHINGTON, DC – Today, Congressman Dave Joyce (OH-14) issued the following statement on the Senate Amendment to H.R. 2617 – FY23 Omnibus Appropriations:

“Over the past two years, Speaker Pelosi and the Democrat majority have recklessly spent more than $3 trillion outside of the normal appropriations process. Their out-of-control spending has been a driving force behind the inflation pummeling Ohio families.

“Now more than ever, Congress needs to produce a responsible fiscal agenda that meets the needs of the American people. But instead, my Democrat colleagues have crafted a spending package that willcost taxpayers nearly $2 trillion, contributing to further inflation and failing to meet the fundamental duty of securing our borders or lowering energy costs. This spending bill demonstrates that Washington has seriously misplaced priorities.

“As always, I have stood ready, willing, and able to work with my colleagues on the other side of the aisle to produce a fiscally responsible spending package that prioritizes the needs of my constituents. While there are some parts of the legislation that I like, they do not justify voting for nearly $2 trillion of out-of-touch spending that will only make things harder for working families.

“It’s sad that the Democrats waited until the last minute in an attempt to sideline the incoming majority. This type of governing is irresponsible. It is not what the American people want and it is the opposite of what they need.”
