Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah, and three other Republican senators sent a letter to Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., in which they stated how important a short-term Continuing Resolution which would cover funding until early January would be. In January the GOP will take control of the House.

The letter was also signed by Sens. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, Rick Scott, R-Fla., and Mike Braun, R-Ind. In it, they vote that a short-term Continuing Resolution would be in alignment with what the American people voted on, as they decided to place the Republicans in a leadership position. They also noted that an omnibus spending bill would lead to President Biden’s agenda being funded for another ten months, without anyone checking on what he is doing. To this, they added that it is Biden’s “reckless policies” that are to blame for the 40-year high inflation rates. This is why nothing but a short-term Continuing Resolution should be accepted by the GOP.

In the letter, they also state that since Biden took office there has been a $4.8 trillion increase in the national deficit. This has cost the average American household around $753 more per month.

This is why the new Congress should be the one responsible for next year’s spending, as it is time for Republicans to help steer America to a brighter future.
