Stefanik rails on Biden's 'blank check' spending, urges 'patriots' to reelect Trump
Trump has been a strong supporter of Stefanik's ascending political career, and the New York congresswoman and in turned backed the former president.
House Republican Conference Chairwoman Elise Stefanik on Saturday, the final day of the 2023 CPAC event, accused President Biden and his "far left socialists" supporters of wanting a "blank check" to continue with what she called wasteful spending and urged fellow conservatives to save the country by reelect President Trump in 2024.
"In just two short years under the foreign left and single party Democrat, America … inflation has skyrocketed to the highest rate in my lifetime," the New York congresswoman told the crowd on the final day of the 2023 CPAC event, at Maryland's National Harbor, just outside of Washington, D.C.
"Families now have to choose between filling up their gas tanks, heating their homes or putting food on the table because of Biden-flation and Joe Biden's war on American energy independence. … Our national debt is more than $31 trillion. Yet Joe Biden and the far-left socialists, they want a blank check to continue to spend our hard-earned, taxpayer dollars on wasteful work programs."
With Trump set to give the keynote address at the Conservative Political Action Committee event, Stefanik also urged the main ballroom crowd to reelected the former president, who in November 2022 declared his reelection bid and who appears to remain a favorite among the CPAC crowd.
"Friends, we the people know that the fabric of America is under attack," Stefanik said. "It's under attack by the radical left, their loyal stenographers in the mainstream media and the failed and corrupt leadership of Joe Biden and today's Socialist Democrat party. We need patriots like you across America to save our great Republic. And this will be one of the toughest fights we face.
"Believe me, I know firsthand that the left, the entire corrupt democratic ecosystem and vicious Never Trump-ers will smear, threaten, cancel, lie and do anything (else) to try to silence us and suppress the will of the American people. But the American people are smart. We see past the left's politics of personal destruction. We have exposed the corrupt and complicit mainstream media. And we must take our country back in 2024 by reelecting President Donald J. Trump."
