WASHINGTON—Today, Rep. Chip Roy (TX-21) made the following remarks on the House floor regarding Democrats’ socialist spending bill:

WATCH the clip here.

I can’t help but wonder what my colleagues on the other side of the aisle are waiting for with baited breath for a CBO score.

You don’t need a CBO score to know that 100 billion dollars’ worth of amnesty when our border is wide open will cripple the state of Texas, cripple our country, cause thousands of pounds of fentanyl to pour into our country. 

You don’t need a CBO score to know that a 900% increase in OSHA finds to go after small businesses and shut them down with tyrannical vaxx mandates is going to cripple jobs and small businesses across the country.

You don’t need a CBO score to know that 500 billon dollars of unicorn, climate agenda energy policies are going to drive up heating costs, drive up the cost of gasoline, and cripple our economy.

You don't need a CBO score to oppose that. And you don't need a CBO score to know that 300 billion dollars of tax giveaways to basically blue state Yankees is going to somehow fix our country. I yield back.
