Bernie Moreno Statement on Joe Biden in Cleveland

Today, U.S. Senate Candidate Bernie Moreno released the following statement on President Joe Biden’s visit to Cleveland to promote his latest spending plan:

“Today, President Joe Biden will travel to the great state of Ohio and lie to our faces: spreading false claims of free money from the federal government.

Biden’s so-called infrastructure plan does nothing to help the communities this administration pretends to protect. This ‘plan’ is nothing more than additional drunken federal spending. As inflation starts to rear its head, he wants to print more money and devalue our hard-earned dollars even more. If we need to pay for infrastructure, states should be given the flexibility to spend the billions in slush funds that they have already received. No liberal wish lists or gifts to woke corporations under the phony guise of infrastructure–real projects like ports, roads, and bridges. There should be no more wasteful spending on the backs of Ohio wage-earners who will pay for it in dramatic inflation.

President Joe Biden, Senator Sherrod Brown, and Congressman Tim Ryan are unraveling the great achievements our country made over the last four years in just five months. The Trump tax cuts were projected to create more than 45,700 new jobs in Ohio over the next decade and the average Ohioan saw a tax cut of more than $1,476 thanks to President Donald J. Trump. Now, Joe Biden wants to ruin that with $6 trillion of spending and $3 billion in tax hikes. Ohio unemployment is 4.7% and has recovered only two-thirds of pre-pandemic job losses. Biden’s Blue State Bailout skates right over Ohio’s needs, and yet this boondoggle will bankrupt our kids’ generation.”

There are 320 distressed communities in Ohio that have been designated as Opportunity Zones because of the Trump tax cuts that drives new investments to those areas. Cleveland’s own Ja’Ron Smith served as the Deputy Assistant of American Innovation for President Trump and oversaw the Opportunity Zone projects. He joined together with Bernie to say, “Bernie Moreno was a key driver of the opportunity zone project in Ohio, and without his passion it would never have gotten the results that it did. We need leaders with records like that–real results–not more career politicians.”

Bernie Moreno worked to reinvent the scholarship programs at Tri-C, where Joe Biden will deliver his speech tonight, to bring about transformational change for students in great need.

He believes that we must work to protect the American Dream and the prosperity that should belong to all Americans. Learn more at
