State Legislature Leadership: Stop $ 2 trillion Federal Tax and Spend the Bill


As Christmas approaches, we have a request from the Montana federal delegation: Please do all in your power to stop the tax and reckless spending proposal that is currently making its way through Congress. The biggest gift Montana can receive from Washington, DC this holiday season is a dose of common sense, not more federal taxes and debt.

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer has said his goal is to pass President Biden’s $ 2 trillion tax and spend the bill before Christmas. Meanwhile, inflation is getting worse, billions of dollars have already been spent in Montana and billions more are on the way, and US federal debt continues to soar in the stratosphere.

Congress has already surpassed $ 5,000 billion in COVID relief spending and recently passed a $ 1.2 trillion infrastructure bill. The Federal Reserve has poured several trillions of additional dollars into the economy. The federal government is collecting more tax revenue than ever, but the US national debt is fast approaching $ 30 trillion. We cannot continue on this path. Sending an additional $ 2 trillion in federal spending will raise inflation while plaguing Montanais with more regulations, mandates and taxes.

Rep. Matt Rosendale, R-Mont., Thank you for voting against this $ 2 trillion boondoggle. Senator Steve Daines, R-Mont., You have consistently opposed this disastrous bill. Thank you. Senator Jon Tester, D-Mont., You have expressed some concerns, but you have not made a commitment to curb this beast of $ 2,000 billion in federal overruns. It only takes one Senate Democrat to put an end to the spending madness. We keep hearing about Sens. Repulsive Joe Manchin and Kyrsten Sinema, but not our own Democratic senator from Montana. You’ve noted that President Biden’s bill somehow manages to raise a lot of taxes while dramatically lowering taxes for wealthy liberals who own expensive real estate. Why on earth would Democrats cut taxes on California oceanfront mansions while sparking massive increases in the prices of food, energy, cars and utilities?

The last thing Montanese want for Christmas is more inflation, more unnecessary federal spending, higher taxes, tax breaks for coastal millionaires and more federal mandates.

We urge you to oppose President Biden’s reckless agenda. Three “no” votes on our delegation’s $ 2,000 billion spending bill would be the best gifts you can give Montanais this holiday season.
