Democrats Will Face Consequences for Looting the Middle Class

AMAC Exclusive – By Seamus Brennan

As Americans head to the polls Tuesday, every indication suggests inflation will be the top issue on the minds of voters—and that if a red wave materializes (as is widely expected), Democrats will largely have their own exorbitant spending bills to blame. But it’s not just the amount of money Democrats have spent, but how they have spent it, and from whom they have taken it. Over the past two years, Democrats have looted the Middle Class to pay off their political allies, setting the stage for a catastrophic election cycle.

Most Americans would likely agree that if inflation were the result of something truly important—like funding a World War III victory or even building a 21st century version of the interstate highway system—voters could have good faith conversations about whether that inflation was worth the cost. But the inflation Americans are facing today, of course, is no such thing. Instead, Americans are struggling to feed their families because Democrats are flushing voters’ money straight into the pockets of far-left interest groups so that they can indulge their wildest fantasies and bribe their activist voting base.

Biden’s 2021 COVID “stimulus” package is a prime example. The bill was brimming with wasteful spending oriented towards some of the far left’s most prized policy goals. $50 million of the $1.9 trillion bill went to the Environmental Protection Agency for so-called “environmental justice” and “environmental infrastructure” programs; $783.5 million in stimulus checks went to convicted criminals; $30 million went to so-called “smoking kits” for crack addicts; and more than $4 billion went to illegal aliens. These were just a few of the ridiculous expenditures in that gargantuan, inflation-causing bill.

But this barely scratches the surface of the outrageous litany of left-wing policies that Americans are now funding. K-12 schools have received an unfathomable $130 billion in taxpayer dollars in COVID relief money, which has been used for practically every pet project imaginable, including to indoctrinate students with Critical Race Theory and radical gender ideology. The massive infusion of COVID cash has been used for countless other ridiculous causes: Washington, D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser spent $3 million to paint and rename the “Black Lives Matter plaza” near the White House. Democrat city officials in Alexandria, Virginia, used $120,000 to update its tourism website. According to the Associated Press, Democrats in Broward County, Florida, used $140 million for a luxurious spa and hotel. And Democrats in Cleveland, Ohio, created a $6 million slush fund for each city council member to use however they wanted.

Perhaps most devastatingly for the economy, Biden’s so-called “American Rescue Plan” spent a whopping $400 million on paying Americans not to work, worsening an already alarming labor shortage that poured more fuel on the inflation fires. Furthermore, Democrats’ Green New Deal agenda has resulted in immeasurable harm to the millions of energy workers in the fossil fuel industry—even as heating and gas costs for normal Americans continue to skyrocket. All of this added cost is pure wasted, stolen from the Middle Class to fund Democrats’ environmental extremist allies. To make matters worse, these very energy policies are exacerbating inflationary pressures by driving up prices even further and keeping energy workers out of the workforce.

The left has continued to ransack the Middle Class through Biden’s highly unpopular action on student debt forgiveness, which has worsened the already wide gap between wealthy Democrats and Middle Class Americans. Though Biden and others in the Democratic Party have insisted mass debt cancellation will have no inflationary effects, in reality, the onus for the debt cancellation will fall squarely on American taxpayers, many of whom either already paid off their student debts or did not take out student loans in the first place.

By every indication, the left’s pattern of reckless spending binges and contempt toward the Middle Class is a winning issue for Republicans. A handful of recent TV ads has effectively called the left’s looting of Americans to attention: in August, for instance, American Action Network launched a one-minute ad urging voters to “stop Biden’s bailout for rich kids,” featuring footage of blue-collar workers lamenting the reality that their hard work is going to “pay off some other guy’s debt.” A similar ad sponsored by Our American Century targeted endangered Senator Raphael Warnock (D-GA) for his stated intention to cancel $50,000 in student debt—which would mean, in the words of the ad’s narrator, that “working class folks in Georgia that have been busting their hump for 25 years would be forced to pay off the gender studies degree for the bartender with blue hair.”

No matter how persistently Democrats might claim that their series of gigantic spending bills are vital for economic recovery and the wellbeing of the American people, the facts paint a decidedly different picture. In reality, the American Middle Class is not incurring these massive price tags for World War II-level conflicts that require extraordinary levels of financial sacrifice. Instead, the American people’s suffering comes from being asked to subsidize Democrat interest groups and far-left utopian schemes.

As Americans head to the voting booth, they will surely not forget why they have endured unprecedented levels of economic suffering—and why inflation is here in the first place. In the end, the Democratic Party is the party of looters—and the only way to stop the large-scale theft of the Middle Class is to vote them out.

If you vote for a Democrat, you are voting for higher taxes, less jobs, more inflation, more crime, more drugs, more corruption, more lying to the American people, less freedom, more erosion of our educational system, you are voting for a lot of things and none of it is good for America. Vote Freedom First, Vote Republican!

Should Democrat lose control of one or both chambers of Congress, they will just turn around and use those embedded within the administrative state, the so-called Deep State, to try and undermine any proposed changes a Republican led Congress might try to accomplish until they can re-take power down the line. That is what they have done consistently for decades.

As for Biden, anyone thinking he will pivot like Bill Clinton did hasn’t been paying attention. Biden isn’t running anything. He does what he is told to do, because he is mentally impaired. So expect Biden to be issuing vetoes of just about everything a Republican Congress sends to the White House. The Democrats see this window of opportunity to remake the United States as truly unique and they aren’t going to relent like they did in the past. So enough of the inside the Beltway nonsense that this will be a repeat of Bill Clinton’s pivot. Different times with a much different Democrat party and President.

The Democrats don’t suffer “consequences” as the author implies. At least nothing of real, lasting impact that would dissuade them from doing the exact same thing again down the road. Bad legislation that was enacted into law is NOT repealed. Trillions in wasted spending is not somehow recouped. New taxes and regulations passed into law still stands. The fallout from all those bad polcies still exists. It’s just they we don’t get any more new ones hopefully for a time. That is until the Democrats manage to get enough idiots to vote them back into office again in the future. We do desperately need a smarter electorate that can see through the Democrat lies better. Democrats, in general, never accept defeat or are held to any real account for the destruction they cause. They just regroup and come back at the public from a different angle down the road with the same old BS that causes even more damage.

I have no idea how the Democrats can have the fiscal policies they have had and back to the far left radical portion of their party and expect to get reelected. It just shows how far out of touch from reality they really are

Joe Biden is half right. The fate of our republic is at stake in this election and the next. However, the party that must be defeated is his so called Democratic Party, not the imperfect Republican Party. Our country cannot survive any more wokeism in any form.

I noticed Joe Biden stated how some elections would take DAYS to tally. His press secretary just reiterated that. To me, that’s the code phrase for “it would take days to cheat.” So folks, don’t be surprised when such prolonged election tallying results in Democrat victories.

I hope every American now realizes that the Democrat Party should be voted to extinction.

What Biden and his minions are doing is all part of the plan to bankrupt the American Middle Class, as well as ultimately crashing the economy, which are key components for ushering in a new currency and subsequently the New World Order. Biden’s claim that eliminating fossil fuels is his goal is pure nonsense. It is merely the guise under which the bankrupting of America’s Middle Class is taking place. More Americans need to start waking up to the existence of the “Great Reset” being promulgated by the World Economic Forum that is headed by Klaus Schwab: The man who has stated that by 2030, “You will own nothing and you will be happy.” And don’t be surprised if the Democrats steal some of the current election races.

I think that Democrats want to lose elections, why else would Biden come out couple of days ago & admit publicly that “There will be no more drilling & I will close down all coal mines/plants” . Biden does not have a clue on what provides electricity in this country —- and solar & wind farms are a very small percent & have their own enviro problems. I think Biden lost millions of votes with this statement this weekend.

Theres a very big difference between what should happen and what’s likely. What should happen is millions of sleepwalkers wake up to the harsh realities of dem rule. At the same time, those who were awakened by carter, obama or now biden should stay awake long enough to force change. Whats likely is R victory in the house but not the senate. Maybe the senate by one. Even so, the turtle has zero desire to challenge the dems. Same with macarthy. It might come down to millions of people of both parties marching in arctic parkas in February demanding an end to green idiocy. People are somewhat motivated right now. Three or four hundred dollar heating bills will be even more motivating.

When the Democrats decide to cheat in the midterms, all hell is going to break out across the nation! I’m tired of a bunch of thieves, cheaters, criminals, traitors and corrupt individuals destroying our country and stealing our money. They (THE DEMOCRATS) think that they are above the law but, that doesn’t include VIGILANTE LAW. Watching them dangling by their necks in a town square somewhere would make me very happy! Let’s get it done!

Unfortunately, the voters did not reject the Democrats as they should have. As of now Republicans did pick up some House seats but control of the House is still in Doubt. Voters in Pennsylvania decided to support the free spending Schumer Senate and the voters in Arizona and Georgia ( subject to a possible runoff ) seem to be doing the same. We had hoped that the voters would have said Enough Already Stop the madness. But too many said keep doing to us what you are doing. The voters of Pennsylvania Arizona and Georgia will get what they deserve. Unfortunately the rest of us get what those voters deserve.

50% of the voters still haven’t realized that Biden and the Democrats are ruining our current financial situation and ignoring the long-range picture. Like the children who think they won the event, they are too busy celebrating that they won the day to see anything. So next time, they get their car broken into or have parts stolen from it, or have to deal with gun shootings down the block or their newly purchased item is snatched right out of their hands by someone in the mall or there’s a homeless person using the local bus stop as a residence or the most shocking maybe–the favorite coffee drink at Starbucks is now over $10. Perhaps they might realize it when no one is giving them any sympathy and the police will merely make a report on the incident. They gained nothing.
