     Biden is trying to make the US a "for free" country.  Republican members of a House committee will launch a campaign next week attacking President Biden’s $3.5 trillion social spending plan, condemning the legislation as “welfare expansion” and a job killer, according to a report. 

Republicans on the House Ways and Means Committee will huddle at a roundtable forum on Wednesday to spotlight the ways the legislation will cripple the economy, increase entitlements and wipe out jobs, the Washington Examiner reported. 

     “The meeting will focus on the massive welfare state expansion included in Democrats’ Build Back Better reconciliation bill and how policies that foster government dependency ultimately fail our most vulnerable families and children,” Republicans ​on the panel said.​  Republicans are in the minority in the House, but they plan to roll out an aggressive campaign to ​scuttle the legislation as Democrats try to work out a deal before House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s Oct. 31 deadline for a vote.

     “Even though the U.S. has more than 10 million job openings and is facing a worker shortage, Democrats are making the largest expansion of the welfare state in our lifetimes and discouraging work, threatening the recovery of our post-COVID economy,” ​the GOP House members said.​ They said American families need good-paying jobs, not “more emergency spending and endless government checks.”​​ The Republicans also plan to tout how their policies would reduce poverty by building a strong economy, creating more opportunities and linking federal benefits to work.
