OMAHA, Neb. (WOWT) - Nebraska Sen. Ben Sasse slammed President Biden’s budget proposal in an emailed statement Thursday, calling it “insane” and wondering “who fell out of Willie Nelson’s tour bus and wrote this thing?”

“None of these numbers add up,” said Sasse, who is a member of the Senate Budget Committee. “The president is scribbling out IOUs faster than a paper mill.”

Sasse said in the statement the U.S. hasn’t spent this much since World War II, “and with good reason.” He said that level of government spending “harmed the next generation’s competitiveness, crowds out non-government activity, and spawns inflation that hurts working families right as we’re nearing the end of the pandemic.”

As an extra jab, the senator’s news release also specifically noted that Sasse was a “graduate of Mrs. Daake’s 3rd-grade math class at Trinity Lutheran.”
