"The amount of money we spent to win World War II"

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) on Sunday railed against Democrats’ recent spending packages, arguing that the $1 trillion Senate-passed bipartisan infrastructure bill and the $3.5 trillion social spending plan would total “the amount of money we spent to win World War II.”

In an interview with John Catsimatidis on WABC 770 AM, McCarthy argued that Democrats are “just adding onto our debt as we’re going along,” asserting that the spending plans would “create greater inflation.”

“It’s redistribution of wealth, it will take money out of the economy, make America less competitive, especially for our competition around the world,” he added. “It’s a real concern.”
