Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) and fellow House Republicans hosted a news conference to discuss Joe Biden’s multi-trillion-dollar social spending bill.
The GOP leaders held a press conference on Wednesday where they addressed the left’s $5 trillion social spending package that could potentially put the country in the largest debt in history. Several Republican leaders criticized the current administration’s policies and addressed their concerns over the country’s current supply chain crisis. They added if the measure is passed, it could create the biggest economic downfall for future generations.
Congresswoman Elise Stefanik (R-N.Y.) further discussed how this upcoming holiday season will be the most expensive in the country’s history due to inflation and yet, spending more money is seemingly the only thing on the left’s wish list. The New York representative also noted how the country’s border crisis worsens every day, pointing out the social spending legislation would grant thousands of illegal immigrants amnesty if passed.
Dems want to hire an army of 87,000 IRS agents to get even more money out of families' bank accounts.
To spend on radical things like $450,000 payments to illegal immigrants and tree equity.

GOP Minority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.) elaborated on Stefanik’s remarks, adding the bill will hire 87,000 more IRS agents funded by taxpayers, if passed.
Meanwhile, as Republicans continue to expose the truth behind the 2,000 page legislation, the Biden administration hopes to pass the Build Back Better bill this week. In addition, Democrats have been making efforts to rebrand the bill as an anecdote to fight inflation.
