AMAC Exclusive – By Claire Brighn

Budget

For over a year now, Joe Biden and Congressional Democrats have worked at a furious pace to write and pass radical policies and legislation. Biden’s proposed 2023 budget marks the latest continuation of that trend. Totaling $73 trillion in spending and $58 trillion in taxes – an 80% increase over 10 years – it represents one of the most massive expansions of the federal government’s power and purview in American history. While Democrats have already tried to ram through their progressive agenda by brute force or by sneaking it into other legislation, Biden’s budget seeks to fund and enforce some of the most radical portions of that agenda permanently, as Democrats work to make good on their promise to “remake America” before they are likely booted from office this fall.

Here’s a look at just a few of the more radical items in Biden’s budget.

1. Equity, Equity Everywhere

“Equity” is a major theme in Biden’s budget, garnering 74 mentions throughout the document (for comparison, “inflation” is mentioned just 6 times). The woke buzzword in practice seeks to replace equality of opportunity with equality of outcome, and is perhaps the most pernicious aspect of the far left’s social agenda.

Ultimately, the budget paves the way for the federal government to enforce equity in every part of American society. For example, nearly $17 million goes toward the Department of the Interior’s “Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Accessibility” programs. $20 million is for the Department of Transportation to promote “equity and inclusion.” Even more – $2.6 billion – is for advancing gender equity and equality globally.

But the push for equity doesn’t stop with just direct allocations. According to Biden Budget Director Shalanda Young, all taxpayer money would be distributed through an “equity” lens. At a House hearing on the budget plan last week, Young referred to one of Biden’s earliest executive orders (EO13985), which states that the federal government must “incorporate equity in all that we do: racial equity, rule equity… so when we do procurement, we want to make sure that our dollars are spent with socially disadvantaged companies.”

In practice, that means the government will be dishing out hundreds of billions of dollars to woke corporations to push their left-wing agendas. In effect, Biden’s budget aims to reorient every power structure in American society toward the concept of equity, abandoning the fundamental American value of equality in the process.

2. Peace Corps, AmeriCorps – Green New Deal Civilian Climate Corps?  

Alongside equity, “climate” takes center stage in Biden’s budget, mentioned 187 times. Funds are provided to establish the Civilian Climate Corps, a concept first introduced by Biden and advocated for by far-left environmentalists like the Sunrise Movement, one of the leading activist groups behind the Green New Deal.

The Civilian Climate Corps targets youth employment and operates under a mission of climate “justice.” Apart from its dubious purpose of fighting the “existential” threat of climate change, the Civilian Climate Corps would exist to address what Democrat Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer called an “interlocking” of a climate crisis and economic crisis. In other words, the Civilian Climate Corps is envisioned as the enforcer of the far left’s climate and economic agenda. Perhaps this might explain why “environmental justice” and “equity” often appear side by side in Biden’s budget.

3. Identity Politics 2.0, Transgender Edition

The Biden administration no longer hides its embrace of radical left-wing gender ideology; just last week the President endorsed youth sex-change operations and hormone therapy. That shines through in the budget, which evinces a singular focus on divisive identity politics. “Transgender” is mentioned more times than pressing issues like “border security,” “Iran,” and “inflation.”

4. Obliterating U.S. Gas and Oil Production

At a time of soaring gas prices, Biden’s budget proposes roughly $43.5 billion in tax hikes on U.S. gas and oil production, saying in its official explanation of revenue proposals that these practices are “detrimental” to long-term energy security. And while most Americans can’t afford an electric vehicle (which cost an average of $55,000) as the President so callously suggested when asked about record-high gas prices, Biden’s budget would ensure federal agencies are provided with $757 million for a zero-emission vehicle fleet. So rest assured that the federal government will no longer be concerned about rising fuel costs.

5. Welfare State Gets Bigger – And Woke

Instead of providing tax relief to make Americans more financially independent, Biden’s budget proposes an increase in funding for SNAP, the Department of Agriculture’s food stamp program, to make even more Americans reliant on the program. Back in August, the program fed 42 million Americans per month, and it was around this time that the Biden administration quietly increased monthly maximum food stamp benefits to around 20 percent than they were before the pandemic – permanently. Nowhere in the budget is a plan to help these recipients actually become more financially stable so that they can provide for themselves and their families.

Biden’s budget also goes even further by proposing $100 million for government spending to retrofit new appliances in low-income housing. The newly established “Office of the Administration for Children and Families” is tapped to help carry this out and rope in the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program as part of the “transition to clean energy economy.”

Of course, any claim of empathy for low-income Americans is a farce. This past winter, Biden’s energy policies forced many low-income families to choose between food or heating. Furthermore, Biden and Democrats’ $1.9 trillion stimulus from last year fueled inflation and essentially paid Americans not to work when businesses were trying to reopen.  

6. Open Borders

While Biden’s budget provides funding increases for DHS, ICE, and CBP, upon closer inspection, much of these funds will not go toward securing the border, but rather processing more migrants. DHS Secretary Mayorkas said as much, noting that Biden’s budget would provide “funding that will allow us to process asylum claims more efficiently as we build a safe, orderly, and humane immigration system.”

The budget actually cuts ICE funding for 5,000 adult detention beds and totally eliminates all 2,500 family beds. Instead, $494 million is set aside for “noncitizen” processing and care costs. Moreover, on a much larger scale, $26 billion of DHS funds would go toward efforts like mitigating the effects of “climate change through community partnerships.”

If there is any doubt as to where Democrats’ priorities lie, during a recent hearing on the budget, Young admitted that $1.9 billion in funding previously appropriated for construction of the border wall is going toward “environmental restoration” and “community consultation.”

7. Radical Progressive Tax Schemes

It’s no secret by now that Biden’s multiple legislative proposals would sock Americans with higher taxes, drive down earned income, and raise the business tax rate higher than in communist China. One new tax in Biden’s budget, however, is especially concerning. It seeks to tax unrealized gains, which is not only likely unconstitutional but would dramatically empower the IRS – which has a history of targeting Republicans – and smacks of previous tax proposals put forward by radical progressives like Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders. It’s also wildly unpopular: 75% of Americans oppose taxing unrealized gains. 

8. Politicized Education Gets a Big Boost

The Biden Department of Education would get a sizable chunk of money – $88.3 billion, a 20 percent increase over the 2021 enacted level – under the proposed Biden budget. This increase, if the past year is any indication, is a bad sign for parents. As a reminder, this is the same Department of Education that prioritized grant funding to push the work of Ibram X. Kendi and other prominent Critical Race Theory scholars, and it is the same Biden administration that insinuated parents were domestic terrorists for wanting a say in their children’s education.

Incredibly, Biden’s budget does not once use the word “parent.” In all of Trump’s budgets, for comparison, “parent” was indeed used to make clear that Department of Education funding should cater to the needs of parents and students, not teachers’ unions and woke school boards. 

9. Abortion Advocates Rejoice

Biden’s budget once again left out the Hyde Amendment, the longstanding bipartisan prohibition on taxpayer dollars going toward abortion procedures. A majority of Americans, according to a recent Columbus/Marist poll, oppose taxpayer funding of abortions. Regardless, the Biden administration continues the Democratic Party’s shameful record on paving the way for the murder of the unborn.

10. Federal Election Takeover Attempts Continue

In Biden’s budget, under the sub-header “Protects U.S. Elections and the Right to Vote,” is a proposal for $10 billion for “new elections assistance,” which would essentially expand mail-in voting. After the election integrity woes of the last presidential contest and then the multiple attempts by Democrats to federalize elections ever since, this type of funding raises serious concerns for election integrity advocates.

***

All told, Biden’s proposed fiscal year 2023 budget is a thicket of extremism, even by the standards of today’s Democratic Party. For many voters across the country, already none too happy with the far-left policies Democrats have signed off on thus far, it is yet another example of a party that is out of touch with the American people.

Biden’s budget is wrong, wrong, wrong! There is nothing in his budget that is good for the average American. We can;t afford electric cars, but he is essentially cutting off the gas for those of us who have gas run cars. He wants to run the elections – REPUBLICANS WATCH OUT. If we don;t put enough Republicans in office to take back the senate and house, we can kiss our Country goodbye.

And IF this budget passes, how are they going to monitor the money for such things as “diversity, equity, inclusion and accessibility”? In my opinion, a lot of this money will be ending up in the coffers of the Democratic candidates in November and 2024. Instead of spending money on real issues, this budget is another “poke to the eye” to the average American citizen. It is nothing but garbage aimed at further destroying our country. These DC Marxists are nothing more than evil haters of our Democratic Republic and every white citizen who dares to disagree with their ridiculous “woke”, sick agenda!

You’ve got to give the Rats one thing. They know they are going to lose big in November so they are going for broke to get everything they can before they lose control. Like the greatest president ever, Donald J Trump said repeatedly, DemocRats always stick together. Please vote and vote big in November. It’s the only way to stop the madness. KAG

We can stop all this DESTRUCTION by these “FRAUD-WOKE” power hungry-greedy demo-rats. KEEP THIS COUNTRY FROM BECOMMING A DICTATORSHIP.

Hey no one ever said our transition from a representative republic, based on the principles found in the United States Constitution and Bill or Rights, to a socialist democracy, based on the principles of both Karl Marx and Chairman Mao, would either be painless or enjoyable. You’re talking two completely incompatible systems of governance after all, so obviously it would be painful for most.

Soft coups, such as the one we have allowed to stand, have consequences as we’ve already started to see over the last 15 months. Lots and lots of very uncomfortable changes being imposed on the nation by the people in charge who are on a ideological mission to completely transform this country. Things will of course get progressively worse, no pun intended, the longer we allow ourselves to be led down this path. Until eventually a reversal back to the norm becomes impossible. The more transformative changes we simply allow to take place, the harder it will be to get back to anything approaching what most people would consider normal.

Funny how we NEVER see the millionaire democrats redistributing THEIR money in the name of Equity, The US Median Income is about $31K/yr. Pelosi, whose net worth is about 135 million. In the name of outcome equity, Pelosi should redistribute $31K of her wealth to about 4,350 people (with no income). That way, Pelosi and all those people would be happy living at the median income level.
Think we’ll ever see that? Not a chance in hell. Because equity is for everyone else, not the ruling elite (as they think of themselves).

Absolutely shameful. It’s disgusting that they push for electric cars when electric car batteries are mined by children. It also takes 500 gallons of water to mine for each battery mined, just shameful. They also push for the killing of innocent children rather than preventing pregnancy in the first place with simple birth control. Abortion has never been the answer unless the mother’s life is at risk and then only when she is at the point of death. That truly happens once in a million. As an RN and before, I personally have seen it happen once in my lifetime. I have seen multiple infections of young women and those who have lost all chances of ever having a baby after abortions, however. These have devastated these girls and young women. Open borders are completely against our federal laws and constitution and have to be voted upon by our Congress. He literally cannot do this.

So our vote used to be our weapon against stupid Socialist anti-american being in office. Biden stole that last power of the people. It’s time to fight. I’ve wriletters for 30 years to government officials. Now they ignore them. Tl people you know who voted for Biden about what’s happening. Grow a backbone and argue our nation back to making good common sense decisions in the vot I ng booth. Overwhelm the Bidenettes and their criminal activity. Or.. shut up and be prepared for everything to get a lot worse.

The United States has equality in our +200 years of history. If you want to work, then you will be paid by your employer, and then if you live within your means : then you can provide a life for yourself and your family. I do not think that Americans would like a system where the govt. gives you money not to work & controls your entire family life. Stop & dwell on what is your definition of FREEDOM ????

How is it that equity and inclusion as a political situation is appropriately put with the Dempartment of Transportation, much less how is it defined as a Constitutional Right??? I think the DemocRats are so fouling up word descriptions that nothing really makes sense as to what they are doing and what their true goals are as fits the Constitutional Rights of citizens.???? Our national governance is starting to look like a comic book/Communist bible movement. I’m seriously beginning to have real fear that really bad times are on the horizon for our Nation.

In the Democrat Socialist Progressive agenda, the minority rules the majority — backwards from what our democratic republic should be. I know there should be equality and freedom for all, but equity privileges go overboard to satisfy the identify politics that is not only unfair but truly subversive.

Every bit of that budget is PURE SOCIALISM.

I’m pretty sure most of that 40 or so million people on SNAP benefits were illegals in this country. Pray people that something will happen so we can get this country back to her former self. These people, according to much I’ve seen from Conservative reporting, are of the Devil. He’s playing them all and loving that he has so many lost souls to control. We need to pray for our leaders that God will open their hearts and eyes. ‘Only with God it is possible.’

This budget is a disaster for the country. it will turn this country into a socialist hellhole that will only result in everyone being equally miserable. Also, contrary to the claims of Biden, Harris, Sanders and the rest of the Marxist cabal, the budget will NOT be paid for only by taxing the millionaires, billionaires, corporations and the unrealized gains of the above for the simple reason that there aren’t enough of them. Eventually the time will come when the Biden administration will have to start taxing the middle class in order to pay for their pet projects because that’s where the money actually is. Anyone who says anything different is LYING!
