 U.S. Representative Richard Hudson (R-NC), House Republican Conference Secretary, released the following statement on Congressional Democrats' "Inflation and Recession Act" which will be considered by the U.S. House of Representatives on Friday.

"Families across our community continue to suffer from the highest inflation in 40 years, it costs twice as much to fill your tank as it did two years ago, shelves are empty at the grocery store, and your paycheck doesn't go as far as it used to. Yet, Democrats in Washington have chosen to double down on the massive spending that fueled these crises in the first place.

"This bill would raise taxes, throw money at woke climate and social programs that won't work -- including over $350 billion for 'Green New Deal' initiatives -- and make the inflation crisis worse.

"On top of this, they plan to hire 87,000 new IRS agents to come after you. That's more than all the troops stationed at Fort Bragg, America's largest military base. You couldn't even fit all the IRS agents in the Carolina Panthers stadium!

"Congress needs to be focusing on real solutions for you and your family, not the failed policies that helped create this economic crisis in the first place. When the House votes on this bill, I will vote no."
