(RepublicanReport.com) – Joe Biden has been in office for less than a week, but some of his policies are already attracting backlash. Representatives from both sides of the aisle have taken issue with the president’s fiscal irresponsibility, in particular.
On Sunday, January 24, members of Congress from both major parties went on a 75-minute call with Biden administration operatives. They voiced concerns about Biden’s proposed $1.9-trillion COVID-19 relief bill, which many commentators have denounced as being too expensive.
Biden’s critics say his stimulus plan will cause inflation. But the real problem is it won’t address labor’s shrinking share of income.https://t.co/nvCIyOQ2kU

Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME) said she would prefer to see “a more targeted package.” Democratic Senator Joe Manchin (WV) also expressed doubt about the suitability of the proposal. A major concern for representatives from both sides was the general $1,400 stimulus check, which they suggested, should be redirected to target the people most in need of help.
Joe Biden did not personally contribute to this call, so we can’t say for sure what his views are on these concerns. However, his administration appears determined to push on with projects that will result in a very large debt passed on to the US taxpayers.
