Congressman Byron Donalds Weekly Wrap Up

For most of last week, the House of Representatives stood in recess with Speaker Pelosi calling back members for just one day to pass legislation raising the debt ceiling.

The reckless spending passed by Democrat leadership is further bankrupting our children, increasing inflation to record highs, and burdening the American people. The supply chain crisis we are seeing is seeping into all aspects of our economy and hurting the livelihoods of all Americans. Look no further to companies like Waffle House who announced a new company policy to offer a limited menu in the wake of skyrocketing inflation and continued hiring issues.

The Biden administration’s encouragement of permanent government handouts is causing a widespread worker shortage and an unmotivated workforce. Yet, despite crisis after crisis created by this President, he’s absent. Joe Biden has been missing at the border, absent following the Afghanistan crisis, and now his absence as POTUS has caused one of the worst supply chain crises this nation has ever experienced. Rather than encourage the American workforce to get back to work to grow our economy, this administration would instead pass socialist spending programs that increase the power and purview of the federal government, ultimately systemically transforming the United States of America. When Washington bureaucrats meddle with the economy, economic success falters rapidly, and any hope of keeping the American Dream alive diminishes.

As we approach the 2021 holiday season, our country is experiencing another massive blow to its wallets: inflation. Gas prices are up 42%, electricity more than 5%, used cars up nearly 25%, and other household essentials are increasing by the day. The holidays are already an economically stressful time for most American families; however, thanks to Joe Biden’s rising inflation and the supply chain shortage, families across the nation are going to feel the burden of Bidenomics this holiday season. Frankly, the American people can’t afford Joe Biden.

Thank you!


In the Media

Our country can’t survive the division the radical left is spewing in the form of Critical Race Theory. Children should be free to learn our entire history without leftist bias.

We need to empower our children to lead our nation, not divide our country.

More of my thoughts on Fox News’ ‘Ingraham Angle’:

At the risk of political persecution, the Cuban protestors are sending a message to the rest of the world: The dream of liberty is worth the sacrifice and is worth the fight.
