Press Release

Washington, DC – Rep. Lloyd Smucker (PA-11) voted against President Biden and Speaker Pelosi’s disastrous “build back bankrupt” legislation and released the following statement:

“President Biden and Speaker Pelosi’s massive multi-trillion-dollar tax-and-spend legislation builds back bankrupt. It is a disaster for the American people. It raises taxes on small businesses so Biden and Pelosi can dole out nearly $300 billion in tax breaks to the wealthiest coastal elites. This legislation makes American companies less competitive in a global economy. The IRS will be weaponized to target small businesses and ordinary Americans. Worse yet, it removes Hyde Amendment protections, paving the way for taxpayer dollars to be used to fund abortions. Contrary to the Biden administration’s claim, this bill will add hundreds of billions more in debt on the backs of future generations. I voted no and will continue to oppose this massive increase in the size and scope of the federal government," said Rep. Lloyd Smucker.
