Examples of proposing in a Sentence

  1. Lauren Lane:

    I knew she wouldn't want some elaborate crazy proposal, so, I decided to keep it pretty casual. I asked her parents for different places in Portland I could potentially take her to, but after a lot of thought I decided doing it at the family cookout would be the most laid-back setting and that she'd appreciate the simplicity of me proposing to her in her parents' backyard.

  2. American Enterprise Institute.Jason Furman:

    It's bizarre. The tax changes the Democrats are proposing are tax increases so if anything, you'd think that would reduce inflation, in general you think tax cuts are inflationary and tax increases are you know deflationary, so I think it's sort of strange because I think Republicans aren't trying to accuse Democrats of being big tax cutters but if you think taxes are causing inflation it's like you're accusing the Democrats of cutting taxes by too much.

  3. Brett Schaefer:

Total revenue for the U.N. system in 2018 was $56 billion. Moreover, we have seen the World Health Organization badly mishandle the response to COVID-19 by trusting information from China. Why that experience would give governments confidence to give such resources to the UN is a mystery.
