(USA Features) Wyoming Republican Sen. John Barrasso lashed out at President Joe Biden and Democrats on Wednesday over the White House’s massive $6 trillion budget after saying he plans on making the current occupant of the Oval Office a “one-half term president.”
“Look, Joe Biden will sign whatever Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer can put on his desk no matter how reckless, no matter how expensive it is,” he said on Fox News’ “America’s Newsroom.”
His comments come after he said during an event sponsored by the conservative Ripon Society that he wanted to stunt Biden’s presidency through the ballot box beginning next year.
“Mitch McConnell’s come under a lot of criticism for saying at one point he wanted to make sure that Barack Obama was a one-term president,” Barrasso said at the event, according to a video posted by the Ripon Society Tuesday.
“I want to make Joe Biden a one-half-term president, and I want to do that by making sure they no longer have the House, Senate, and White House,” he added.
Barrasso also lambasted Biden’s policies “whether it’s open borders, higher taxes,” energy or cyber-attacks.
“Today we’re importing more energy from Russia than we’re using from Alaska,” said Barrasso. “We were energy dominant. We’re now energy-dependent.
“We need to continue to use energy as a massive resource. We need to stop those policies,” added the Wyoming Republican.
“As long as you have this freight train of Biden in the White House, Pelosi and Schumer, they will continue to try to do things like this $7 trillion massive spending that they can only pay for by raising taxes on all Americans.”
