Washington, DC – Congressman Frank Lucas (OK-03) released the following statement after the U.S. House of Representatives passed a combined rule providing for passage of S.Con.Res.14, Congressional Democrats’ budget reconciliation framework, and the Senate Amendment to H.R. 3684, the Infrastructure and Jobs Act. Lucas opposed the procedural motion.

“Today, Speaker Pelosi successfully compelled moderate House Democrats, who originally stood for fiscal responsibility, to pass a rule that guarantees the passage of budget reconciliation- an egregious, irresponsible spending and tax plan saddled on the back of the American people. Democrat spending is completely out of control, and families are paying the price as Americans see the purchasing power of their hard-earned paycheck tumble,” said Congressman Lucas. “This is not the fiscal responsibility Oklahomans deserve, and I’ll continue to urge my colleagues on the other side of the aisle to grasp the real-world consequences of their reckless spending.”
