‘President Biden’s agenda has dramatically increased inflation,’ argues Scalise
First on Granthshala: House Minority Whip Steve Scalis, R-La., says President Biden’s economic agenda, which includes a proposed $3.5 trillion spending package, will only accelerate inflation.
In an interview with Granthshala Business on Wednesday, Scalise detailed his work getting House Republicans to vote against both an infrastructure package and a $3.5 trillion spending package, which he called “tax increases and spending bills.” . Minority Whip warned that multi-trillion dollar bills would “put gasoline” on the fire of rising inflation.

“President Biden’s agenda has dramatically increased inflation, and they are trying to put gasoline on that fire,” Skellis said. “But I would argue that they just don’t have the votes to do that, and you can see the internal battle within the Democrat convention where the socialists are fighting with the liberals.”
Scalise commented that “socialists” were pushing a “tax and spending bill” on the docket first, while “liberals were trying to get the infrastructure bill done”.
“And they don’t even know what bills they’re going to bring in next week,” he said. “But I think some of that is due to the fact that they don’t have the votes to pass it yet.”
2 House Republicans said that Democrats’ “part of the trouble is related to the fact that this policy is starting to negatively impact families.”
“They’re looking at how households link spending growth in Washington to higher inflation, and if you add trillions in new spending plus trillions in new taxes, you’re only going to make inflation worse.” ,” Skellis said.
“And they know it’s going to hurt their members, and it’s already hurting them in the election,” he continued.
Scalise said House Republicans are working hard to beat Democrats’ bills as House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., pushes for an infrastructure package to bring the House floor to a vote.
