Congressional Republicans are drawing their political battle lines as the 2024 budget and debt ceiling enter the conversation.
"When it comes to being honest with the public, Biden 'never fails to fail,' according to House Freedom Caucus Chairman Scott Perry (R-PA) of his influential group's 'budget,' which, more accurately, summarizes its negotiation demands," reports Washington Examiner.
"Confronted with his abysmal economic record and doubling down on his crippling spending proposals, Biden goes right to another fear and smear campaign," Perry said.
He's Not Backing Down
"For him to fearmonger using firefighters, police officers, and healthcare as his pawns is a disgusting and disingenuous distraction from the real issues facing American families and job creators," Perry added.
"The House Freedom Caucus and Perry have at least one partner in the Senate: Scott. Biden, in addition to some Republicans, has spent the past year criticizing Scott for his 'Rescue America' plan, a response to Biden's 'American Rescue' framework, which originally pitched reauthorizing federal laws every five years," reports Washington Examiner.
"Biden responded by saying this would regularly put Social Security and Medicare on the chopping block. In reaction to the scrutiny, Scott edited his website to read that the reauthorization provision 'was never intended to apply to Social Security, Medicare, or the U.S. Navy,'" reported Washington Examiner.
"We need to bring fiscal sanity back to Washington and I’m standing with my colleagues in the House who are showing that they give a damn about this country and will fight to fix it," the senator wrote.
"The debt ceiling is our opportunity to get something done and we cannot squander it by caving to the reckless and dangerous wishes of Biden and the Democrats," Scott added.
