The White House’s hosting of folk musician James Taylor for a party praising the Cut Inflation Act was “a celebration of the fate of the American people,” said Sen. Joni Ernst (R-IA ) in the Wednesday edition of SiriusXM. Breitbart Daily News with host Alex Marlow.
“It was extremely inappropriate, and it really threw ridicule in the face of our American workers,” Ernst said of Tuesday’s celebration on the South Lawn.
She continued, “While they were celebrating there, we weren’t taking any votes on the floor of the Senate because all those people were so busy having a big party at the White House.”
Ernst said the federal government’s growing levies on the public come as it fails to perform its essential duties.
She remarked, “It’s heartbreaking to see that we’re demanding more from our American taxpayers, and yet here they are spending taxpayers’ money on frivolous items that the feds don’t have to do. “
Ernst said one of his neighbors in Red Oak, IA, took a second job at a grocery store in addition to his main full-time job in order to “make ends meet” in the face of rising inflation and the cost of living in the United States.
“We’re not doing votes on the Senate floor because they’re so busy having a fancy party with James Taylor playing music,” she said. “I would like to know how many glasses of champagne were served yesterday to celebrate the fate of the American people.”
Ernst concluded by calling on government officials and bureaucrats to respect the executive orders and mandates they impose on citizens.
“The Department of Energy should lead by example,” she concluded. “They’re asking hard-working Americans to set their thermostats to 78 degrees — well, for heaven’s sake — let’s go to these federal agency buildings and set their thermometers to 78 degrees. Owe should do that.
