Virginia GOP Congressman Ben Cline says that in order for the country to get back on track in terms of finances, the federal bureaucracy needs to shrink and power must go back to the people. 

"We're going to keep working to make sure that we shrink the bureaucracy and the administrative state by balancing the budget," Cline said on the Tuesday edition of the "Just the News, No Noise" TV show. "The RSC is going to put forward a balanced budget here in the next few weeks that counters the Biden administration's budget."

Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen has said that the recently announced IRS audits would take a toll on families and small businesses. 

"It just shows that they're not stopping," Cline stated. "They're doubling down on their big government plan to intervene and interfere in every aspect of lives of American citizens."

Cline also discussed the importance of the United States Constitution in guiding the country in the right direction.

"The Constitution is not just a guide book," he said. "It's an actual set of rules for how government should work in limitations on government. It emphasizes it's the government of the people, by the people and for the people, not a government that's left to its own devices to do whatever it pleases."
