Womack Statement on Voting Against “Build Back Broke”

Washington, DC—November 19, 2021....Congressman Steve Womack (AR-3) issued the following statement after opposing House Democrats’ “Build Back Broke” bill, which would institute a multi-trillion-dollar tax-and-spend spree. The legislation is not “paid for” as previously claimed, will implement the largest tax increases in history—giving the United States the highest combined federal and state personal income tax rate in the world—and adds billions to the debt:

“Every aspect of the Democrat agenda has stood in stark contrast with reality. Think about it. They said they want unity, inflation is temporary, the border crisis is seasonal, there would be no federal vaccine mandate, Americans weren’t left behind in Afghanistan, and the so-called ‘Build Back Better’ bill costs zero. Every notion has been proven false. Their dubious claims on this monstrosity are no different. It radically expands government and skyrockets deficits. High inflation will be made worse to allow tax cuts for millionaires, mass amnesty, electric car rebates for liberal elites, a massive IRS expansion, and things like ‘tree equity.’ They are willing to mortgage the livelihoods of middle-class Americans—and futures of our children and grandchildren—to fulfill their socialist vision.”

Congressman Steve Womack (AR-3) has represented Arkansas’s Third Congressional District since 2011. He is a member of the House Appropriations Committee.
