Republican Senators blast ‘lawless’ Biden admin over COVID spending: ‘Time to stop’

An effort to save American taxpayers more than $13 billion by reining in wasteful spending has failed after Senate Democrats voted down Sen. Eric Schmitt’s, R-Mo., disapproval resolution. 

“Today, Senate Democrats chose to continue their effort to shelter unelected bureaucrats from any sort of accountability and embolden the Biden Administration’s disastrous efforts to waste more taxpayer money on pet projects unrelated to their original intent,” Schmitt said in a press release after Wednesday’s Senate vote.

During Wednesday’s press conference, Schmitt was joined by several other Midwest Republican Senators, including Sen. Roger Marshall, R-Kan., Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wis., and Sen. Pete Ricketts, R-Neb., who presented the disapproval resolution under the Congressional Review Act aimed at the Treasury Department’s alleged misuse of COVID recovery dollars.

“Biden, Senate Democrats, and the army of unelected bureaucrats in the administrative state have wreaked financial havoc on middle and working-class Americans from high prices to runaway inflation and everything in between. My work on this isn’t done – stay tuned,” Schmitt wrote.
