Congressman Frank Lucas Votes No on Build Back Better

Sat, 20 Nov 2021 21:41:25 CST

Congressman Frank Lucas Votes No on Build Back Better Congressman Frank Lucas (OK-03) released the following statement after the U.S. House of Representatives passed H.R. 5376- the Build Back Better Act:


“Today’s exercise and passage of the Build Back Better Act wasn’t about making smart, thoughtful policy decisions that better serve the American people. Regretfully, today’s exercise was about using gimmicks to dramatically increase the size and scope of the federal government and further burdening our children’s children with an unforgiveable sum of debt.


“Instead of addressing our country’s urgent crises- like skyrocketing inflation or a crippled supply chain- Washington Democrats are instead seizing on the opportunity to ram through a transformational agenda that millions of Americans never asked for, nor wanted. Aside from the reckless nature of spending, the Build Back Better Act gravely ignores significant, bipartisan congressional priorities. At a time when energy costs are skyrocketing, it’s troubling that this bill rejects an all-of-the-above approach to energy research and instead focuses almost entirely on climate change buzzwords. Furthermore, the bill ignores the needs of rural America. From rural broadband to producer assistance to detrimental tax policy, the needs of family farms are being neglected and left to wither.


“Oklahomans have witnessed the consequences of bad government before. I remain opposed to Washington Democrats’ spending for the sake of spending mindset and hope my colleagues in the Senate reign-in this irresponsible bill.”
