Among the many nasty surprises buried in the 2700-page “barebones” compromise “infrastructure” bill is a provision to establish a pilot program to examine the feasibility of a national, per-mile “user fee” on all motorists – i.e., a tax on every mile you drive (since Biden hasn’t made driving expensive enough already.)

Democrats are trying to brush off questions about this by claiming it’s not a tax hike, it’s just to study the possibility of a mileage tax in the future that might not ever be imposed. If you think that Democrats will go to that much trouble to workshop a big new tax and then not impose it, I have some oceanfront property in Kansas I’d like to sell you.

Here’s more waste stuffed into that bill…

It also includes a piddling $1 billion for a commission headed by Sen. Joe Manchin’s wife…

And blogger Lawrence Person also lists some not-very-infrastructurey items hidden in that bill, from state-mandated carbon reduction programs to racial quotas on broadband.

https://www.battleswarmblog.com/?p=48841

Person also includes this quote, which every Republican who supports this bill should be required to respond to, from two researchers at the Texas Public Policy Foundation: “It has just $110 billion, or less than 10% (of its spending), for what’s historically been considered infrastructure – roads and bridges. The other 90% is to fund mass transit waste, green energy nonsense and more items that the states or the private sector could do.”

I often wonder, if leftists are really that concerned about carbon emissions, why don’t they stop burning massive piles of our tax money?

    In rural areas, I doubt if an electric schoolbus could even run some of the mileage on some routes without having to stop and recharge.

    I’m really confident the Democratic Party is full tilt with the old 1960’s Cloward -Piven agenda. Bankrupt America to instill Socialism.

    Pastor Mike. The Republicans are on the wrong side of the infrastructure argument. Like they were FDRs New Deal. If it were up to them we would still be using horse and buggies. I agree with Republicans on a lot of things the Infrastructure isn’t one. Even McConnell and Romney voted for it! Wonder why?

  • Mike Tracy

    Every line item in every bill, especially spending bills should have the congressman or woman's' name who requested or placed that item in the bill. We need to know who is pushing these crazy spending items and why. There is too much anonymity in these bills, it is not enough to say these crazy leftists put such and such in a infrastructure spending bill, we need to have names!

    How about this for an idea. Even though it has nothing to do with the infrastructure bill. I am thinking about these bus loads of illegal immigrants, along with their COVITS, being shipped to various parts of the country. I am under the impression the communities where these folks are being dumped don't even know they are getting them. Anyhow, when the bus drops them off wherever, how about some authority figure tell these people, as they are getting off the bus, to stay assembled right here and don't move. At that time, re-charter that bus, or charter another one, put the illegals, COVITS and all, back on the bus and ship them to Washington DC. Time it so they arrive around ten or eleven in the evening and drop them off right at Lafayette Park, right across the street from the White House. Would this be doable?
