Biden Administration Vows To Veto GOP Spending Bills Over Defunding Woke Agenda

On Monday, the Biden administration vowed to veto spending bills from the Republican-controlled House of Representatives that defund the woke agenda if they make it past the Democrat-controlled Senate to his desk.

A statement of administration policy released by the Office of Management and Budget attacked the GOP for “wasting time” by supposedly pushing through “partisan bills.”

“House Republicans had an opportunity to engage in a productive, bipartisan appropriations process, but instead, with just over two months before the end of the fiscal year, are wasting time with partisan bills that cut domestic spending to levels well below the FRA agreement and endanger critical services for the American people,” the statement read. “These levels would result in deep cuts to climate change and clean energy programs, essential nutrition services, law enforcement, consumer safety, education, and healthcare.”

The legislation that the Biden administration seeks to block are the Military Construction and Veterans Affairs (MilCon-VA) and the Agriculture appropriations bills.

The statement went on to claim that the Republicans’ proposed spending cuts and other policies will cause unacceptable “harm to clean energy and to energy efficiency initiatives that lower energy costs and critical investments in rural America.”

The Office of Management and Budget also asserted that the measures would harm the Biden administration’s Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) policies, as well as its LGBT policies and climate change initiatives.

“The draft bills also include numerous new, partisan policy provisions with devastating consequences including harming access to reproductive healthcare, threatening the health and safety of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, and Intersex (LGBTQI+) Americans, endangering marriage equality, hindering critical climate change initiatives, and preventing the Administration from promoting diversity, equity, and inclusion,” the administration claimed in the statement.

The Biden administration is also outraged because Republican measures would block their plans to expand abortion access through the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) and ban LGBT flags from being flown at VA locations.

The House is preparing to vote on the two measures later this week. The process to fund the government has been changed this year, as Congress was forced to separate annual appropriations into 12 separate bills because of the Fiscal Responsibility Act passed earlier this year. If Congress does not pass all of the appropriations bills, then they would be required to approve a continuing resolution that mandates a 1% reduction in the deficit from the previous year.
