WASHINGTON, D.C. (Aug. 24, 2021) – Today, U.S. Representative Tim Burchett (TN-02) released the following statement regarding his vote against Washington Democrats’ far-left budget plan: 

“It is ironic that last night the House of Representatives overwhelmingly passed a bill improving budget transparency at federal agencies, but today Speaker Pelosi snuck a partisan $3.5 trillion budget proposal into routine House procedure. This budget proposal sets up our federal government to expand in size like we have never seen before. Washington Democrats’ out-of-control spending has sent both inflation and public debt soaring, now is not the time to pile on more.”
