Washington, D.C.- Tonight, H.R. 5376, the Democrats’ $1.7 trillion social spending bill, narrowly passed the House of Representatives. Congresswoman Michelle Fischbach (MN-07) released the following statement after voting against this legislation:

“The spending in this bill will exacerbate already record-high inflation. It will increase tax audits on small businesses. It provides amnesty and payouts to illegal immigrants. It does not have Hyde Amendment protections included anywhere, directly acting against the of millions of Americans who do not want their tax dollars to fund abortions. And, the tax cuts in this bill will overwhelmingly favor the very wealthy, while middle-income households are likely to see an increase in their taxes. This bill is no what the country needs now and it proves how little regard Democrats in Washington have for the American people.”

As always, my office is open and ready to serve constituents of Minnesota's Seventh Congressional District! Please do not hesitate to get in touch if there is anything I can do to help. Have a great weekend!
