“Massive spending, massive deficits, massive expansion of the welfare state is tyranny.” — Mark Levin
In what can only be described as a day of fiscal infamy, on Tuesday the U.S. Senate voted 69-30 to pass the 2,700 page $1.2 trillion infrastructure scheme. Nineteen turncoat Republicans joined all 50 Democrats to pass the fiscally irresponsible bill, which is integral to passing the democrat’s $3.5 trillion plan that is no longer limited to updating roads, bridges and tunnels. This massive overreach includes taxing Americans for every mile they drive, skyrocketing prices for goods and services, increasing nanny state government dependence, and of course, climate initiatives. Stanley Kurtz, writing for National Review, exposes Biden’s plan to abolish single family zoning, which dems classify as “exclusionary.” It’s just the tip of the treacherous iceberg.
The nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office reports the $1.2 trillion bill would increase federal budget deficits by $256 billion over 10 years.
These are the 19 Republicrats who voted with democrats:
Roy Blunt, Missouri
Richard Burr, North Carolina
Shelley Moore Capito, West Virginia
Bill Cassidy, Louisiana
Susan Collins, Maine
Kevin Cramer, North Dakota
Mike Crapo, Idaho
Deb Fischer, Nebraska
Lindsey Graham, South Carolina
Chuck Grassley, Iowa
John Hoeven, North Dakota
Mitch McConnell, Kentucky
Lisa Murkowski, Alaska
Rob Portman, Ohio
James Risch, Idaho
Mitt Romney, Utah
Dan Sullivan, Alaska
Thom Tillis, North Carolina
Roger Wicker, Mississippi
Republicrats who voted for the bill — which no voting senator likely read — including Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, should all be held accountable during the midterm elections. Passivity will only embolden them. Former President Donald Trump urged defeat of the bill that is the precursor to radical leftist N.Y. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio Cortez’ Green New Deal and will burden future generations with insurmountable debt.
The bill expands paid family and medical leave, while funding child care. It creates universal pre-K and tuition-free community college, and extends household tax credits passed during the COVID-19 pandemic. It lowers the Medicare eligibility age and expands benefits to include dental, vision and hearing. Also included is the expansion of green energy and curbing climate change through business tax incentives and polluter fees.
The infrastructure plan seeks to replace the electric grid with the goal of putting the U.S. on a path to 100% carbon-free electricity by 2035.
Welcome to the United States without the leadership of President Trump.
