Senator John Barrasso (R-WY) said on this week’s “Fox News Sunday” show that President Biden’s Build Back Better law was the “Alice in Wonderland” logic.
Barrasso said, “We have record inflation right now. I see this as a backbreaking bill for the country with the kind of spending, spending, increasing debt, inflation, taxes that are going to hit the American people. For Joe Biden to say “We need to spend more money on top of inflation”, to me, that makes “Alice in Wonderland” logic. It’s the Mad Hatter here.
On raising the debt limit, Barrasso said, “Well, in my state I was a member of the state Senate. Our Constitution requires that we balance our budgets every year to live within our means, just as families across America must, and I think the federal government should be doing the same.
He added: “This is all about spending by Democrats. It’s 100 percent on them. If you get rid of all the accounting gimmicks, this bill the Democrats are proposing is $ 4 trillion in additional spending. There is not a single Republican who is going to vote for the bill or to raise the debt ceiling. It’s about the Democrats.
