(FreedomBeacon.com)- Rep. French Hill, a Republican representing Arkansas, appeared on Fox News recently and slammed President Joe Biden’s plan to plunge America into even more debt – and establish even higher taxes – by passing an unprecedented $3.5 trillion spending plan.
Speaking to Maria Bartiromo, the Republican legislator said that not only is Biden wrong to do this, he’s even breaking his campaign promise not to raise taxes on anybody making less than $400,000 per year.
Remember that promise?
He made it repeatedly.
And he’s still making it. On September 13, this year, the president’s Twitter account said that anybody making less than $400,000 per year won’t’ see their taxes go up “one penny.”
He added that the people “at the very top” need to pay their “fair share” – a sentiment some Americans are likely to agree with, but more Americans understand is more of a talking point than it is an actual policy.
If you make less than $400,000 per year, I’ll never raise your taxes one penny.
But if you’re at the very top, it’s time to pay your fair share.
We need to reward work in this country — not just wealth.
— President Biden (@POTUS) September 13, 2021
Despite the claim, the Biden administration’s Transport Department is reportedly considering implementing a tax on the number of miles people drive in a year, and the White House has publicly declared its intention to reverse President Donald Trump’s tax cuts. There is no explanation so far from the Biden administration how he squares this circle.
Speaking to Bartiromo, Rep. Hill said that if Biden and Bernie Sanders are successful in getting the $3.5 trillion bill through Congress, then Americans will see higher taxes – period.
“Small businesses, families up and down the income line, you’re going to see enhanced cost everywhere. And some of the offsets they’re talking about in the $3.5 trillion resolution, they say they’re going to raise a minimum of 1.5 or so trillion dollars in taxes, but that’s a minimum,” he said.

How, exactly, do you think the White House will be able to pass such massive spending bills without increasing taxes on regular people?
