UPDATE: 3:33 A.M. ET

It looks like the chickens may be coming home to roost. THREE banks have failed in the past week: Silvergate, Silicon Valley and Signature. As historic inflation and higher interest rates keep weighing down the U.S. economy, millions of Americans wonder if more collapses are on the way.

Yesterday morning, to reassure a rattled nation, Joe mumbled through a four-minute statement, insisting: "Our banking system is safe. Your deposits are safe." Then he shuffled off without taking any questions from reporters.

America's so-called "Commander-in-Chief" didn't instill much confidence. The "emperor with no clothes" wants to continue trying to convince We the People that he's doing a great job and everything is going perfectly fine.

But, just one day after the first bank collapse, Joe unveiled his $6.9 TRILLION budget for 2024. It's a ridiculously laughable tax-and-spend scam that would balloon America's $31.5 TRILLION deficit to $51 TRILLION -- in just 10 years!

Do you think the House GOP should cave to Joe's regime, radical Democrats and Establishment RINOs by letting the "spending insanity" continue? Or should Washington, D.C. stop spending money America doesn't have?

Monday morning:

Just one day before the second-biggest bank collapse in American history, Joe introduced his ridiculous $6.9 TRILLION budget proposal for 2024. Silicon Valley Bank failed on Friday after a "run" on deposits (a reported $42 BILLION in one day), resulting in a takeover by federal regulators.

Joe is expected to address the nation this morning about the biggest banking collapse since the 2008 financial crisis. Over the weekend, he promised that his administration "will maintain a resilient banking system to protect our historic economic recovery."

What "recovery"? Inflation is reaching historic highs, interest rates continue rising, and 71% of Americans say the country is headed in the wrong direction under Joe's "leadership." AND federal regulators also shuttered New York City's Signature Bank this weekend -- the third-largest bank failure in U.S. history!

+ + Should Congress Stop Joe's "Spending Insanity"?

The $6.9 TRILLION Joe wants to spend in 2024 is more than ANY YEAR DURING THE PANDEMIC. That runaway spending led to skyrocketing inflation, rising fuel costs and pushed the U.S. economy to recession! The nonpartisan Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget says Joe's "excessive" proposal calls for 55% MORE FEDERAL SPENDING than the year BEFORE the pandemic.

You've probably heard the word "insanity" defined as "doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result." As interest rates climb, energy costs rise, inflation balloons and a recession worsens, Joe's regime is doubling down on radical, leftist, socialist government spending that could bankrupt America.
