Congressman Jim Hagedorn (MN-01) released the following statement rejecting a measure to raise the national debt ceiling by $2.5 trillion to pay for Biden’s “Build Back Better Act,” which is filled with Far-Left Socialist policies. The measure passed on a party line vote of 221-209.

“For months President Biden told the American people that his “Build Back Better Act” was paid for – that was a blatant lie. The Congressional Budget Office found that this Socialist Spending Spree was going to cost $4.9 trillion and add over $3 trillion to the national debt.
