Sen. Marshall Statement on President Biden’s Fiscal Year 2024 Budget Proposal

(Washington, D.C., March 9, 2023) – U.S. Senator Roger Marshall, M.D., a member of the U.S. Senate Budget Committee, released the following statement addressing President Biden’s Fiscal Year 2024 budget proposal that was released earlier this afternoon:

“President Biden missed this year’s deadline by nearly a month just so he could submit to Congress a budget that doubles down on the tax and spend policies that have lit the fire for the historic, persistent inflation Americans are grappling with every single day. Over the next ten years, this budget adds up to $4.7 trillion in new taxes and calls for $82.2 trillion in federal spending. This includes billions for wasteful line items related to ‘climate change’ and ‘equity,’ and money to hire 1,300 new government attorneys, but only 350 new border patrol agents to address the crisis at our southern border and only four new Drug Enforcement Administration agents to stop fentanyl from further poisoning our communities. At a time when Washington needs to get serious about tackling our out of control debt, it is disturbing to see our president submit to Congress an unserious budget proposal like the one released today.”
