McMorris Rodgers Statement on Biden, Democrats’ Radical Agenda to Transform America

Washington, D.C. (November 19, 2021) – Eastern Washington Congresswoman Cathy McMorris Rodgers (WA-05) today released the following statement after the House of Representatives passed President Biden’s radical tax and spending spree:

“Today, President Biden and House Democrats passed legislation that will fundamentally transform the United States of America – and not for the better. This multi-trillion dollar tax and spending spree is an unprecedented lurch towards more government control in our lives that will saddle our children with a debt they can never pay back.

“While this process lacked all transparency, the consequences could not be more clear – more inflation, empty shelves, and higher costs. It will lead to blackouts and unaffordable electricity bills, with surging energy prices already hitting families hard this winter. Millionaires will get a $285 billion tax break on the backs of those who are struggling to make ends meet. Jobs will be destroyed, our defenses will be weakened, and funding for hospitals to care for vulnerable patients will be slashed. Its socialist price controls will also crush medical innovation and lead to fewer lifesaving cures.

“This bill is reckless. At a time when families are battling record inflation, Democrats have doubled down on socialism. It’s not the will of the American people. This total government takeover of our lives is profoundly un-American, and it hurts hardworking families in Eastern Washington.

“There is no shortage of crises threatening our future. Chaos continues to ensue at the border, our supply chains are in disrepair, everyday costs are surging, and overdose deaths are at a record high. Unfortunately, it’s clear that President Biden is choosing to ignore these issues and turn his back on the American people in the process. I continue to urge strong opposition to this multi-trillion-dollar tax and spending spree in the Senate.”

Veterans Patient Advocacy Act Passes the House

Too often I hear from veterans across Eastern Washington who wait weeks – or sometimes even months – to hear back from the VA after they submit a complaint. These delays are a direct result of an outdated system that only allows patient advocates, not veterans, to track the claim as it moves through the […]

Biden’s ‘Ministry of Truth’ on Pause

Did you see the good news? President Biden’s Disinformation Governance Board (a.k.a. the Ministry of Truth) has officially been put on hold. This is a big win for freedom-loving Americans who shared my concern that we were getting dangerously close to living in a dystopian Orwell novel. From the beginning, I have fought President Biden’s […]



Price Controls Are Not The Answer

Americans are paying record high prices at the pump. In Washington State, the average price of gas soared to a shocking $5.18 a gallon in May. But what’s driving these prices to such devastating heights? Since their efforts to blame the price hike squarely on Putin’s invasion of Ukraine (even though prices were rising well […]
