We have seen a reckless move to the far left from the Biden Administration. Over 50 executive orders dismantling the Trump quest to control the border, a gun grab, a move to impose damaging regulations to business, giving special rights to minorities and transsexuals, and a host of other left-wing wish lists. That’s not all!
Biden recently signed into law, without any Republican support using the reconciliation clause to Senate rules, the “American Rescue Plan Act” sold as a covid-19 stimulus bill to rescue an already self-correcting economy. Eligible taxpayers would be getting a $1400 stimulus check, and even more if it includes other family members. This part of this behemoth 1.9 trillion-dollar bill costs taxpayers $422 billion dollars for their stimulus checks, or approximately 22% of the total bill. The rest of the bill deals with nothing other than Progressive pork, and relief for poorly managed blue cities and states that have not managed their own budgets properly for many decades. It is an expensive waste, one that if it were the entire GDP of most 1st world countries, it would be #8 on the list. This is an unneeded bill that our great grandchildren will be paying for.
The economic madness does not stop with the American Rescue Plan Act! Biden is now promoting his $2.25 trillion Build Green Infrastructure Act. Only about $621 billion will go towards what we currently define as infrastructure, the rest will go for mostly a modified version of the “Green New Deal”, pushing electric cars, busses and trucks, and other initiatives that are in no way related to “infrastructure”. This is another very expensive Act, and if passed in its totality, will be pushed through as a “reconciliation bill” not requiring a single Republican vote. We are being told that even though there is only 1 reconciliation bill allowed per year according to Senate rules, they are just going to change that rule and ram this one through.
And there is much more to this out-of-control spending spree. Biden is now getting ready to ask for another $1 trillion dollars for child care, health care and a litany of other left-wing wishes. I wonder if this will call for another Senate rule change expanding the reconciliation rule, as this one will never pass the smell test with Republican Senators.
This will be over $4 trillion dollars that we don’t have, and we are only 3 months into his Presidency. I wonder what our fiscal debt will be after 4 years of “Progressive” leadership? How much borrowing is too much? How much printing of worthless money can take place before our dollar is worthless?
How does Biden say we will pay for all this spending? Tax corporations much more, tax the “rich” much more, but supposedly it will not touch the middle class? Corporations do not pay tax, they simply raise prices, lower wages, and lower investment in expansion and R&D to pay for the additional cost, which translates to higher prices, higher interest rates, and higher inflation, which is the hidden tax on the middle class, who will have to live with these changes. Another unintended consequence to raising the corporate tax is that we will now be taxing these companies at a much higher rate than other international companies, putting them at a global trade disadvantage. People making over $400,000 per year also contribute to the plight of the middle class, being that many of these people are small business owners who will also cut payrolls and business investment to make up for the higher tax, thereby squeezing the unskilled worker out of jobs. This is bad policy intended to fund even worse policies, and it will hurt all of us, regardless of income.
There are bills on the table that would damage States rights to regulate their own voting systems, which is a Constitutional right. These bills, HR1 and S1would federalize all elections, and embed all the bad practices of the 2020 election into codified law. It also contains provisions to make DC and Puerto Rico states, effectively making the USA a one-party state, as these two territories are heavily Democratic in their voting patterns, and we are evenly split right now along party lines. This may be a stretch, as it would have to have a 60 Senate vote consensus, but have no fear, the Democrat controlled Senate is designing a rule change to get rid of the filibuster, so they can jam it through without any Republican votes in an evenly divided Senate, with Kamala Harris as the tie breaker.
Biden does not stop here! Now he is putting together a commission that will give him and the Senate recommendations on how to pack the Supreme Court, the last bastion of protection we have from Progressive over-reach. It is the Democrats design to blow up the court so that rulings will always favor them, cementing the one-party state throughout perpetuity. They do not want a “balance of power”, but instead they are doubling down on getting permanent power over all of us.
Are you missing Donald Trump yet?
