Bilirakis to Biden: Stop Obsessing Over How to Spend More Money and Start Fixing the Supply Chain Crisis Impacting All Americans

October 25, 2021
Press Release

Washington, DC:  Congressman Gus Bilirakis and a group of his colleagues have sent a clear message to President Biden that the time to prioritize the real needs of Americans over his liberal spending spree is long overdue.  The lawmakers expressed their collective frustration at the Presidents continued push for even more domestic spending while ignoring the supply chain crisis that is impacting all aspects of Americans’ lives.  Excerpts from the letter are provided below:

We refuse to stand by and watch as your Administration dilutes America’s ability to ensure the safe and efficient movement of goods, people, and services throughout our transportation network. We must address the global supply chain and ports crisis before Congress even considers additional social spending and taxation legislation. Our priority right now should be strengthening our nation’s economy and increasing our global competitiveness. The policies of your Presidency and party’s leaders in Congress are exacerbating or simply ignoring the underlying supply chain crisis. These policies include the mishandling of the COVID response in ways that are prolonging unemployment and worker shortages across the economy, to your push for a multi-trillion-dollar spending spree that is driving up prices of everything from gas to groceries. These efforts only serve to weaken American competitiveness and shrink our economy, and they will certainly ensure that this Christmas will not be merry. We urge you to call on your Congressional allies to halt discussions on a budget reconciliation bill that aims to reshape the social fabric of this country and instead work on real infrastructure solutions that focus on moving goods and people safely and efficiently throughout our great country and around the world.
