Democrats’ $3.5T spending plan will hurt every family in America: Sen. Barrasso
Sen. John Barrasso, R-Wyo., argues Democrats’ ‘massively expensive’ spending package will result in tax increases and inflation.
Republicans were quick to condemn Democrats' new $3.5 trillion budget plan as too big and detrimental to the economic recovery after it was unveiled Tuesday night.
Even Sen. Mitt Romney, R-Utah, who has been known to work across the aisle with Democrats, dismissed the price tag as "shocking" and "stunning."
"They’re either going to have to raise taxes enormously or add dangerously to the debt of the country," Romney said Wednesday. "It’s an unthinkable amount of money."
