In an interview with "The Faulkner Focus" on Friday, Senator Marsha Blackburn condemned the proposed $3.5 trillion spending bill pushed by Democratic congress members, noting that Americans are sick of "this socialist agenda" being pushed.

"What Nancy Pelosi and Joe Biden and Chuck Schumer are doing, they are talking to people in the Beltway. They are not outside of the Beltway," said Blackburn. "And the American people have decided that this socialist agenda is about tearing down this country. It is about stripping our institutions, federal control of our schools, and of our health care, closing our churches. These are the things that people are seeing."

"They are furious about inflation, the price at the pump and what they are saying is 'stop it.' That is why the president's numbers are tanking. It is why Pelosi cannot get the votes together. Because most people across this country, they love this country," Blackburn continued.

"They love what this country stands for and they know that this $3.5 trillion spending bill, which is about 5 trillion, and the 1.9 trillion they've already done will drive up the debt, so they can increase the taxes and say 'oh, by the way, don't look at that number, it's paid for and people do not believe it," she continued.

Officials like President Joe Biden and Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi have stated multiple times that the budget reconciliation bill will in fact, cost "zero dollars," with Pelosi urging the public and fellow Representatives to not look at the price tag, rather what the bill will provide.

"This will be paid for, so when some say, oh well, what about inflation? It will be paid for, and that's the beauty of it, by having those in our economy and society who have not paid their fair share, paying their fair share," Pelosi said.

"So, again, the Senate and the House, those who are not in full agreement with the president, right, let's see what our values — let's not talk about numbers and dollars. Let's talk about values," she continued.

With the deadline for a government shutdown looming, Biden signed legislation to avoid a partial federal shutdown and keep the government funded through Dec. 3. While funding was passed, lawmakers opted not to raise or suspend the debt limit, a move that Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen said could lead to a debt default as early as mid-October if Congress failed to act in time.
