Moore, the GOP representative, called out the Democrat’s “arrogance” about the debt ceiling
The Biden administration has signaled its unwillingness to negotiate with congressional Republicans on a fast-approaching debt ceiling solution. House Libertarian Congressman Barry Moore (R-AL) said it was a display of “arrogance” by Democrats and the Biden administration.
Moore said that they accept the American people as their “subjects”.
The Alabama Republican lawmaker said: “Before we got the House this time, it was like when they had one-party rule in D.C. and it was just arrogance.” “Oh, by the way, the Americans are our subjects, we do as we please.” President Biden really wants to be king. If he had the means, he would take a clean debt ceiling and do whatever he wanted to do. We will not allow this. We will fight every step of the way. To do this, the people put us in the majority in the House. I’m so glad we got something, I think it’s one of the biggest losses in the history of the country.”
“Not to pat ourselves on the back too much, Jeff, because spending has gotten out of control with COVID, we’re taking it all back,” Moore continued. “I say, yes, this is the biggest spending cut in the history of the country. But the Democrats just want him to continue running off the cliff. $783 million in COVID money sent to federal prisoners – checks to federal prisoners, insane costs we all pay for the depreciation of the US dollar and inflation. So we need to nip it in the bud and give our Senate something to fight for.”
