Miller-Meeks Statement on Second Reconciliation Bill

November 19, 2021


WASHINGTON, D.C.—Today, November 19th, 2021, Rep. Mariannette Miller-Meeks (IA-02) released the following statement after voting NO on the second reconciliation bill:

For months, the majority has ignored the ongoing crisis at our border, staggering cost of living increases, supply chain issues, empty shelves, high prices at the gas pump, and a labor shortage. Instead of working on bipartisan fixes to address these crises and support American families, the majority is pushing through a multi-trillion-dollar reckless tax and spend package that is full of tax giveaways for the wealthy at the expense of hard-working American families. The CBO has now said what we have known for months: this package is not fully paid for, doesn’t cost zero, and will increase the deficit. We must go back to responsible spending and bipartisan solutions to build a brighter future for the next generation.
