Breaking: Biden Tax Hike “Framework” Fails to Gain Traction

tax hike

Washington, DC — Last Thursday, the Biden administration released a “framework” for a massive tax hike and spending bill with the goal of passing it this week. Those plans quickly fell apart when Democrats in both Houses began to question who had actually agreed to this framework. Speaker Pelosi has been forced to delay plans for floor action multiple times, and with no quick end in sight, negotiations may drag well into December.

AMAC Action President Bob Carlstrom said: “This week’s failed attempt to pass a 1700 page tax and spend bill with a liberal wish list of new programs included shows that Congress is hearing from their constituents back home including AMAC members, who are saying that the reckless spending and the proposed tax hikes are the wrong policies for America at the wrong time. As the economy remains on shaky footing, now is certainly not the time to handicap seniors and small businesses with more tax hikes and debt.”

As negotiations continue, AMAC Action is taking our members’ voices to the hill on issues from drug pricing to tax increases. Our action center has already helped members send hundreds of thousands of messages to Congress during this fall’s tax and spend negotiations. Given the President’s problematic poll numbers on jobs and the economy, along with data showing the economy continues to underperform, Democratic leaders may be in for a tougher winter legislatively than they had hoped for.

Peculiar ain’t it, that fossil fuels from the USA cause destructive pollution that’s killing the planet, (so lament the Greenies) however the same stuff from abroad is just about perfect with no I’ll effects. Then to add insult to injury, our illustrious Commander-in-Chief is begging OPEC to increase production to keep our costs down. How dumb can one be?
This jerk is a joke that’s not funny!!

I have never seen such ignorance in our Government in all the years I’ve been around.
Am hoping that others (including the commies) finally see it too. If not, they will be very sorry they did not see what will be coming for them. They will NOT be getting the freebies they are being promised.

Biden needs to stop his war on fossil fuels before USA is in deep trouble & depens of foreign oil again. It is really sad that he has asked American oil companies to pick up the pace & has also asked OPEC to increase production. Biden admin has no clue or plan on where all of the electric power needed for electric cars is going to come from and so WH and energy dept. need to think of Americans and what you are doing do us at the gas pump & heating our homes before it is too late.

Me. Biden’s main concern doesn’t appear to be American’s well being. He is concentrating on his utopian far left socialist dream of shared misery.

So VERY true. Well said. Johnh: We are ALREADY depending on foreign oil. Why do you think he was asking for more? Btw, Iran denied him. AND as for “electric cars”, someone posted on FB, a picture of what looked like a mile long and a mile wide of parked electric cars in France. They were not junked, they were new ones. The reason that they were parked was because the people who owned them could not AFFORD THE NEW BATTERY THAT WAS NEEDED. I read, but I don’t know how true, that a new battery cost more than the price of the car. I think biden/harris administration doesn’t even want us driving at all. Keep us little peons without guns and cars and no voice in the schools, government and even our own bodies and there you have socialism. While we get poorer, the socialist government get richer. JUST what they are doing NOW. All the wealthy, government and elites got RICHER during covid. We The People sure as hell didn’t. (Forgive me for swearing, I just get so mad)

Have a question, are Trump tax cuts for corporate/wealthy still in place—and I think to year 2025. This cut was $1Trillion per year, and during Trump term debt increased $7.8 Trillion so does that mean this Trump tax cuts was $4Trillion of the increase in debt???? Does not make sense to cut taxes and increase the debt or am I missing something here .

You are missing a LOT. The Trump tax cuts improved the economy (which was a good thing given the shutdowns due to the virus or we would be in worse shape) and resulted in the largest amount of tax revenue ever. The increase in debt was all the so-called covid relief bills and overoaying people to stay home and not work.

It is amazing to me that only 2 Dem. Senators (Manchin&Sinema) are the only ones not for passing this without being able to study what is actually in the bill. And I see about 1/3 of the 1.7Trillion is for climate change stuff —- with no breakdown. At least two people realize the Federal Debt is a problem.

It’s clear that this bill and ones like it are bad…simply for the fact that no one wants it to be read, seen, or even considered. They talk about “framework” as if it was a reality. This is still the same old bait and switch tactic that was used for Obamacare…..pass it, then read it. Only now it’s we have a framework, pass that, then read the bill. Every scam has a covered agenda. Every deception includes fake presentations. Slight of hand is the name of the game, and sadly, while no one can seem to get a copy of this “thing” (framework, bill, whatever), somehow we know it has 1700 pages. Perhaps enough infighting will continue to the point that the “framework” will be too far gone. My guess is , that there will continue to be deals and trade-offs and under the table works and some or most of these bills will make it through….and we can see clearly, it is not because the dems are so good at being bad, it will come down to the repubs, being so bad at the good. It would be nice to have AMAC do some digging and shine the light on these behind the scene, under the cover, closet workers of this administration so we can point the finger at the right individuals, instead of wasting time shanking Biden…he’s just a figurehead, as is Harris…..turn on the light AMAC, and lets see the roaches scatter.

We do not need more social programs which will turn the American people into lazy people Go to work and be proud of what you are doing to help yourself. Stop asking the social democrat party for handouts. What we need is roads and bridges but every State passes million dollar bonds then nothing is done. If the American people do not have any more pride then to continue to take free things they will get what they deserve, loss of your freedom. We must stop communist control of our country as we will very soon be broke.

Just to ad insult to injury I hear that the resident in the White House wants to give $450,000 of our tax money to children of law breaking illegal immigrants!
Please tell me, if a burgular invades your house and steals your property, is caught, arrested, jailed and is a parent, should the resident of the White House pay each of the lawbreaker’s children $450,000 because he broke the law and is seperated from his children?? At the same time I keep hearing that my social security and medicare is running out of money, something wrong with this picture?

This must be stopped. These children were dropped off by their parents and before any money is paid out time to find the cost to the American people for housing, health care, food and all essentials since they were dumped in our country. NO reparations for illegals

Who in White House is pushing this & why such a huge dollar amount. Are they going to give this money to a 6-year old kid? And give it to an 16-year old kid and why would he ever want to get a job to earn a living. Cannot believe they would take more debt money to do this.

Could not possibly be any more clear i.e. they seek Socialism with all the power held by them, (“democrats etal). Democrat held Congress realized they could not get away with their plans before midterm election so we’ll hear lies galore that contradict their true intentions. It makes sense for a sitting US Prsident with a great economy wins the election for a second term. Given the above noted, Biden should not win a second term; he didn’t win the 2020 election. Not only did President Trump win 2020, I believe that without the massive voter fraud we would have seen a landslide victory; despite the plethora hatred espoused by the left for “Trump” from the time he won the nomination until this moment in time.. my point is, the only way Democrats can remain in office is if the lie to their constituents and commit massive election fraud. I believe exponentially more of We The People are understanding but, now is not the time to “coast” i.e. we must continue helping others see what the left is doing, history and facts are very good sources to draw upon, be passionate but not overly so and, do not talk down to them or their ears will immediately slam shut and they will start talking over you and then walk away pi_sed off.

All the comments on this madness coming from this faux administration are spot on…No matter how much these people try to rewrite their ” crooked politician bill ” it sill comes out to 7.5 trillion dollars of money America simply does NOT have to spend… Biden & company simply can’t tax enough corporations or individual taxpayers enough to even remotely cover the bill…In the end, lower & middle class workers in our country pay for it, those are the facts…The elites continue on their merry way, untouched…
The current REGIME in the WH has committed enough treason to be HUNG as traitors ( 10 ) times over already, time to go Joe & the Ho, this includes your entire State Dept., i.e. Blinkon, Austin & Milley… Step down voluntarily or be forcibly REMOVED…One way or another, all of you will be gone…

Actually, our NATIONAL DEBT has surpassed our ability to pay and, in fact, many times over; if other nations that carry our debt decided to cash out, we could not possibly pay and the US Dollar would fall from WORLD RESERVE CURRENCY status and be totally worthless. The Democrats have proudly proclaimed they seek to Fundamentally Change America; that means Destroy America. China, Russia and other countries were simply orgasmic with the results of 2020 election.. what does that tell you?

I read something several years ago that said if 100% of all the wages paid to America’s wage earners was paid back in taxes, the national debt could never be paid off. No one can possibly look at our current debt and even wildly think it could ever be paid off. It’s all part of the plan to destroy America and build back socialist under the one-world government.

Fundamentally change America……reminds me of that Star Trek movie and the Genesis device…..take a planet and destroy it to make it something else……but that was far quicker and less painful.

Bill, spot on about the debt. It’s like a neighbor of mine who got so deep in debt, he just figured, why not keep going….running up bills at every turn, the devil be dammed. Not until he landed in jail did this finally end. But the damage continued for years….to his family, to the businesses he was running, to the friends who invested, and customers, creditors, et.al. The fed has been on this track since the end of the second world war, and checks and balances are out the door. So…let’s print more money, let’s tack on a few trillion more here and there…..it won’t matter…..we are already so far down the path of financial ruin, even miracles have given it up as a lost cause. It may even be too late to “hunker down.”

Good, maybe his America Last agenda is an epic failure. Maybe taxpayers are a bit upset that his spending bills will be taken from them and given to foriegn countries and illegals that are crossing the border, bringing disease, drugs and crime. Maybe his party is worried about their next election. They should, they all are disgraceful.
