Owens Statement on Infrastructure and Social Spending Votes

Washington, D.C. – Today, U.S. Rep. Burgess Owens (UT-04) released the following statement following tonight’s votes on the Democrats’ socialist tax-and-spend package:

“We need to invest in the roads, bridges, airports, and mass transit systems that improve the quality of life for fast-growing states like Utah, but this fiscally irresponsible tax-and-spending spree operating under the guise of infrastructure is not the way forward. The White House and Congressional Democrats’ multi-trillion-dollar plan ushers in unprecedented spending, wage reductions for middle-class Americans, a historic $2.1 trillion tax increase, and stifling burdens for Main Street U.S.A. As one of the most expensive spending packages ever to be considered before Congress, this bill will place a staggering debt on the next generation of Americans, increase inflation, and leave our economy worse off.”
