Hoeven Statement After House Democrats Pass Tax-and-Spend Bill

WASHINGTON – Senator John Hoeven today issued the following statement after House Democrats passed their reckless tax-and-spend bill. Hoeven opposes the legislation and has been working to stop the bill. 

“The Democrats’ tax-and-spend bill would take our nation in the wrong direction. Americans are already facing increased costs due to record high inflation, and this plan for more taxes and more spending would only drive inflation higher. Inflation is a tax on every individual and family, and it hits those at lower incomes the hardest. While the House has approved this partisan legislation, we’ll continue working to defeat it in the Senate.”
