Biden Unveils Another Trillion-Dollar Spending “Plan”

trillionJoe Biden released the latest installment in the Democrats’ radical plan to transform America into a socialist society with fewer jobs and more dependence on government disguised as an “infrastructure plan.”

This $2.5 trillion step on the agenda follows up on last month’s $1.9 trillion in deficit spending that dramatically expanded the welfare state and the trillion dollars left unspent from last year’s Coronavirus legislation.

A sample of the so-called infrastructure plan’s lowlights:

  • Eight years of spending paid for over 15 years.
  • $100 billion to further the federal government’s intrusion into local public schools—on top of the $200 billion they’ve already allocated to schools for other purposes – and still no requirement to open schools.
  • $174 billion in subsidies for electric vehicles.
  • $400 billion to increase the number of health care workers paying union dues and expand Medicaid (again) to cover more people and services instead of working to fix the Medicare program for seniors as it quickly approaches insolvency.
  • Urges passage of the PRO Act, a political handout to union bosses that undermine worker rights and privacy.

To pay for their giant expansion of government, Democrats will raise taxes, lower wages, and squash economic growth.

  • Biden’s tax hike to 28 percent, in addition to state taxes, would drag the United States back to having the highest combined corporate tax rate in the developed world, nine percentage points higher than the average of developed nations.
  • According to the Tax Foundation estimates, Biden’s corporate rate increase alone will eliminate 159,000 jobs, reduce wages by 0.7 percent, and reduce long-run economic output by 0.8 percent.
  • A new minimum tax that will put American companies at a competitive disadvantage.
  • Even Democrats acknowledge this would be the effect, but instead of keeping our tax system competitive, they’re hoping to convince other countries not to compete for our jobs by raising taxes too.

Now, some Democrats are saying they won’t support the new Biden tax increases without adding $80 billion per year in special giveaways to the wealthy living in high-tax states. This is especially pernicious given that during their last spending spree, Democrats handcuffed states from lowering their taxes.

This is just the beginning of tax increases that hurt American workers. The Democrats are promising future increases on the individual side to pay for even more spending as they continue their quest to expand the welfare state. Please look for more on this scheme as further details are released.

There is no way to enjoy such bad news. My question is can the US Treasury spend this money before the bill even passes the Senate? Are the funds being spent coming from last year’s authorizations? I am not a lawyer but all this legislation appears to be on shaky ground for constitutionality.

I would like to know, just who in the hell comes up with all these things to spend taxpayer money on? Are they government employees or greedy companies who stand to gain large amounts of cash? I don’t think it is any political party writing this junk for laws, they are not that smart. Biden is on top of the pile for not being the brightest penny in the pile. 2.5 trillion dollars for mostly BS crap is just plain stupid.

The Feds are printing worthless paper calling it money….and this money is being loaned to America via Biden’s best bud….China. I doubt that America can even pay the interest on the loans China already holds must less than any principal. These communists in power after being installed using voter fraud are doing as much as they can to destroy America. Where the heck is the military….they are NOT stopping the invasion on the Border and they are not taking this fraud mentally incompetent and the laughing hyiena into custody called jail for treason.

Progressives plan (actually the CCP’s) bankrupt the nation, “covid” relief and other trillion dollar plans, destroy any chance of rebuilding the economy, dismantling all sources of cheap and plentiful energy to fuel any recovery and causing world wide disruption by increasing streams of revenue to nations that had been somewhat inactive on the world terrorism stage i.e. Russia, the Middle East

We can, and do whine and complain all day long about how evil & corrupt this clown-show administration is, but the fact remains that we are in the middle of the “Great Reset” that will change everything about our lives. The children are already being successfully indoctrinated in schools to accept this without a whimper. The Constitution is being slowly shredded, bit by bit, so we don’t notice. Like a frog being slowly brought to a boil. There are daily distractions being thrown out by the complicit Media to help further the “Cause”. This is a domestic fight for our way of life, all the while the Foreign Bad Actors are gleefully watching, waiting for the “right moment” to pounce, knowing that we ARE now weak! Can we survive ’til 2024? Or will the globalist NWO crowd win?

No surprise here. The Democrats have always been known for loving Big Government, Extreme Spending, and High Taxes. How many times in my 89 years have I heard Democrat Presidents, Congressmen and Governors brag about having passed the “Highest tax bill in history”? Big government and extreme spending requires high taxes. So Democrats who voted for Biden must love this. This means that over $4 trillion dollars of tax dollars have been submitted by the Democrats in just 2 bills.
I hate to admit it, but one of my immediate family told me he hates Biden, Harris, Pelosi and Schumer, but voted for them because he is for Socialized Health, and, wait for it, his TAXES WERE TOO HIGH! The truth of it is that he is not that dumb, but I think he votes Democrat to appease his radical leftist wife.
I just read on Epoch Times that at least 7 states have introduced proposals against Critical Race Theory (CRT), pushed by the Biden Administration to be taught in schools claiming that all whites are inherently racists, and owe an apology to other races. I didn’t see Texas mentioned as opposing it so called the Lt. Governor’s office and found that a Texas bill opposing it has been submitted.

The critical language in the PRO Act, which is something that the Dems have been trying to do for decades, is “regardless of state law. ..”. So this will force laborers to join unions (or at least support them) even in Texas. Such stupidity. They really are trying to p-off everyone but their bases.

I’m wondering how long it will take for us ( the United States ) to become a third world country. I’m feeling bad for my grands and great grand kids. Our country is no longer like it was when I was a child. I used to go out after supper and play without even thinking that someone may shoot or hurt me. I did have to be home when the street lights came on. I’m 82 and thinking that my grand kids may be out in the street begging for scraps from the rich. I wish I could impeach the lot of them.

This comment is not related to this particular article, but I need to say it. I have often pushed for support of Article V, Convention of States on this platform, but have changed my mind. I had heard only one side of the argument originally and signed the petition, contributed money, and volunteered in support of it. After hearing the other side of the argument against it, I changed my mind. Epoch Times has had video interviews of both sides of the argument and after hearing the side opposing I realized that I had violated my own rule to listen to both sides of an argument before making a decision. When you listen to only one side of an issue you learn nothing. I would encourage everyone to learn all you can about Article V, Convention of States, and seek out the videos from both sides. Both sides make some good points, but what swayed me to the side of the opposition most was the refusal of the leader of the pro-COS to agree to a public debate with Mr. Brown on the issue. Brown has requested a debate on the issue, but the other side refuses, saying that Brown is a liar and that they won’t debate with him. To me, if you are right, and believe in what you support, you would be happy to prove it in public debate. If you are afraid that you will be proved wrong that might be a reason to refuse to debate the issue. It is an important issue. Research both sides and decide for yourself.

Just to “show” you what a difference this 2020 election made – if it was by design or by accident, the “plan” was for the ( D ) communist party to use the “Fabian” method. And that is to chip away at the opposing army with small attacks from all sides. Dominion voting machines ( from Canada ),stupid ( I ) Independent voters, those who did not like Trump’s “STYLE”, and there is the mail-in voting along with the DEAD voting. I personally know 4 people who received 3 mail-in ballots each from a “Red State ! ! ! ” Gas will be about $6 a gallon by christmas as the gift to us from the commies. This will be followed by a crash of the market and the greenback. Let’s enjoy a full blown DEPRESSION. And THEY will find a way to blame Trump for this. Soros will sit on his Reich collaborator a** and laugh.

I hear everyone’s concerns loud and clear, as I share those same concerns!! Since our system is broken, were all those capitol stormers on Jan. 6 wrong??? The only way to stop crooks is to remove them! Please tell me how in the America of today we can do that peacefully???? I hear all the talk I see no action! Myself included! The only way to deal with tyrants is to forcibly remove and imprison or bury them!!! This is what our founders warned us of!!!

A trillion dollars here and a trillion dollars there…..and bam…..we have an economy that is ruined by higher taxes and much higher unemployment. These Marxist Democrats either failed the exams in economics of they just don’t care. When the government raises taxes on businesses, don’t they think the corporations will not pass that on to consumers in the form of higher prices. Commodity prices are already starting to climb, and other taxes on fuel, taxes on estates, and more taxes on retirement withdrawals will affect everyone in the country. This is just another page out of the Marxist playbook being used by O’Biden.

Biden and the liberal establishment are up to their usual tricks to bankrupt America, which will lead to the demise of the Dollar and a global currency. This is the intended objective and has been for decades. A monkey can be trained to print and spend other people’s money that doesn’t exist. Inflation and corporate taxes are the cowardly politician’s weapons of choice to rob taxpayers without accepting responsibility. Biden is a 48 year parasite who only knows how to feed at the public trough and take credit for other people’s hard work and sacrifice…..

I’m just wondering who will fight our wars? Spending all this on BS instead of at least part of it going to the military. Did my 20 and it sucked but did what I had to. Who’s gonna take my place now and maybe get killed? Of course Kruchefv (the Russians for 1950’s/60’s) said they wouldn’t have to fire a shot to defeat us, guess they were right. Thank God I’m too old now to make a difference, unlike Biben (Bips for kids) that screwed us and didn’t even know what he did. Very sad.

Just like the “COVID” plan spent only 9% on Covid and the rest on political payoffs, this plan spends 5% on actual “infrastructure” and the rest to reward leftist supporters of the senile president. A repeat of Barry O’s phony “shovel-ready” jobs program which did nothing of the sort.
If we had an even 30% honest media, this excrement would get nowhere!

This is the start of OLIGARCHY! The Great New Reset is here. Biden is talking 5% actually going to roads, bridges overall infrastructure. That means 95% is going for other things, like the new green deal. He Biden said they want a high-speed train going from the east coast to the west coast. Why they the far left want to eliminate high ways the Democrats consider to be racist. I saw this story on the news. Starting with a highway in Louisiana. Please don’t believe me research the Great New Reset. Pete Buttigieg said the other day we need to put our high way on a diet, what does that mean? He is the head of transportation. If we the PEOPLE don’t stop this take over to our rights, America will be just another socialist-communist country. They are right now talking about a covid passport. Does this mean if you don’t get vaccinated you won’t be able to travel? I was born believing that America was the greatest country in the world. If we allow this power takeover to happen we will be just another third-world country like China, Russia, Venezuela. Everything our forefathers fought for will be for nothing. We can’t let this happen. The time has come to stand up and be heard. Time is running out. Watch what they the school unions are doing and what they are teaching your children and grandchildren. Last of all call your Bank and ask if they are going to use the E S G scoring in the future or are already using this system. If your bank is using this, you might want to put your money somewhere else. WE are living in times of the devil, don’t let him in! Celebrate Easter, Jesus Christ will lead those that believe.

First of all, it doesn’t pay to contact your Senators. I emailed Durban, and Duckworth about stopping big tech, and their censorship. A month later I received an email from both, explaining their push for that stupid H.R.1 bill, and how great this voting bill is / NOT! The point is, they didn’t even answer my question! What do you/we do if they’re not even listening? Do we vote? Will our vote count? My Granddaughters will be paying for this! They’re destroying this country. 2022 is our only hope. I hate to be doom & gloom, but this is a f€^*’$g train wreck.

This is insane: repeating the same actions over and over again, and expecting a different outcome this time. Why, because Biden is “special” and everyone loves him?

Have you paid a visit to the US debt clock recently? Just duckduckgo “US debt clock”. Fascinating. The national debt is now over $28 trillion. By 2025, a mere 4 years from now, the debt clock predicts that figure will increase to nearly $50 trillion! We need to turn back the hands of time, and get this monster under control. That means voting into office real fiscal conservatives.

The dems love holding onto your wallets, and that won’t work for America. Totally and tragically insane.

The author states “Now, some Democrats are saying they won’t support the new Biden tax increases without adding $80 billion per year in special giveaways to the wealthy living in high-tax states.” He does not specify what these special giveaways will be, but based on past Trumpista takeaways that the DemonRats complained so much about, he must be referring to the cap on the “SALT” (State & Local Tax) Deductions. Sounds as though they are preparing to give it back to the rich people in their high tax states. The SALT cap at $10K was put in place by Congress to prevent wealthy taxpayers in high tax burden states (high Income Tax, high State Sales
Taxes, and high Property Taxes) from deducting massive amounts from their Federal Income Taxes, thereby shifting the burden of sustaining the Federal Gub’ment on to taxpayers in States with lower tax burdens overall. Alternatively stated, the lack of a cap for SALT deductions means that the Tax Code itself is/was/will be again gamed by individual taxpayers. The uncapped SALT deductions will again be helpful to both the taxpayers and the high tax States in which they live, to then continue to raise expenditures and State Tax burdens since they know they would be fully deductible from Federal Income Tax. The net effect is to subsidize the ongoing mismanagement so prevalent in States with high tax burdens: CA, CT, DE, HI, IL, KY, MA, NJ, NY, & VT, etc., to name a few. Deja vous all over again.

Just remember that for every trillion dollars the government spends, it puts the average taxpayer on the hook for another $8,000 or a bit more. Of course, you don’t have to immediately cut a check to Uncle Sam, but someday, somehow, that will have to be paid. And so far the government is in debt about thirty trillion dollars, so if you are a taxpayer your share is about $240,000. And if your spouse is also a taxpayer, the two of you owe a cool half million dollars to Uncle Sam. IF this bill is signed into law that will be another $20,000.00 debt per taxpayer.
Even if they somehow manage to never pay it off, that takes away from what the citizenship would have in our economy. It seriously diminishes the prosperity of the general population.
Also, if the interest rates rise, the taxes will have to go up significantly just to pay the interest on that $30,000,000,000,000 federal debt. The bottom line is, this is insanity. It is a house of cards that is very likely to collapse at some point and another crisis like covid could be the trigger for that.
Think about that next time you vote.
