Higgins Votes Against Democrats' $4T Socialist Spending Bill


Date: Nov. 18, 2021
Location: Washington, DC

Congressman Clay Higgins (R-LA) released the following statement after voting against Democrats' socialist spending bill, which a Penn Wharton Budget Model shows will cost nearly $4 trillion.

"This $4 trillion tax-and-spend monstrosity is filled with Green New Deal agenda, unprecedented deficit spending, and job-killing tax increases that will hit every American family. We're facing $30 trillion in debt, the highest inflation in over 30 years, labor shortages, and a supply chain crisis. Yet, Democrats are plowing ahead with their bill for bigger, more intrusive government and trillions of dollars in new spending. Their socialist agenda must be defeated, and we will continue to battle against this bill as it moves to the Senate."

Congressman Higgins also released a video today discussing his opposition to the bill.
