Press Release

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (April 1, 2021)U.S. Representative Tim Burchett (TN-02) released the following statement regarding President Joe Biden’s proposal to increase taxes on Americans to pay for new federal spending on infrastructure: 

“President Biden is caving to the far-left with his ‘infrastructure plan.’ The reality is only 5% of this proposal goes towards repairing our roads; the rest is about progressive priorities like the Green New Deal, which would eliminate affordable energy for families across the country. And to pay for it, President Biden wants to impose tax increases that slow job creation, halt economic growth, and raise the cost of goods and services. Americans should be paying less, not more, during an economic recovery.”
