“American families and workers are struggling to get back on their feet after a year of lockdowns, yet the President tonight made it clear his main priority is keeping progressives happy with a continuation of their spending binge and massive tax hikes that will only make our comeback that much more difficult.
“For Californians, we’ve seen how this plays out. Rather than getting a truly bipartisan relief package, Americans got some of the very same devastating policies we’ve seen here in California — trillions in new spending and higher taxes that hurt middle-class families, small businesses and their workers.
“Rather than constantly seeking ways to raise taxes, we should be finding new paths to lowering them so we are incentivizing growth for our small businesses.
“And while we desperately need to rebuild California’s infrastructure, let’s focus on real priorities like roads and bridges, not failed high speed rail boondoggles and programs that have nothing to do with true infrastructure.
“After a year of dealing with the effects of the pandemic and Governor Newsom’s strict lockdown policies, Californians need help. But raising taxes and hurting job growth is not the answer.”
