There still isn’t a finished, written version of Biden’s $1.75 trillion “Build Back Better” social spending bill, but here’s an article about what’s supposedly now in it and what failed to survive Sens. Joe Manchin and Krysten Sinema.
You’ll notice that the biggest portion, $555 billion, is for “clean energy and climate investments,” which critics say means destroying the domestic fossil fuel industry, rewarding well-connected green companies and creating slush funds to support unemployed radical environmental activists. There’s also $90 billion for “Equity and other investments,” an awfully vague leftist buzzword description for something that’s going to cost $90 billion.
(If you’d like a better idea of what “Equity” really means, the Vermont Department of Health gave us a perfect illustration with their use of “equity” in distributing COVID vaccines. It means unconstitutional prioritizing of medical treatment based on people’s skin color):
There’s another $130 billion to prop up Obamacare, and another $100 billion to “improve our immigration system.” Considering that after nine months of Joe Biden, we barely have an immigration system left, I shudder to think how that will be spent.
But I'm sure they'll find ways, considering this Administration is already talking about giving up to $450,000 per person in “reparations” to illegal immigrants who were separated from their families under the Trump Administration. Again, these are people who CAME HERE ILLEGALLY. Arkansas Sen. Tom Cotton called it “insanity” and compared it to paying a burglar for the psychological trauma he endured when he broke into your home.
With that kind of “thinking,” I’m sure the Biden White House will have no problem coming up with creative ways to blow 100 billion tax dollars on “immigration reforms” that will make illegal immigration even more attractive and encourage a lot more of it.
As bad as the Biden $1.75 trillion spending bill is, it could have been worse, and many Democrats are furious at Sens. Joe Manchin and Krysten Sinema for preventing that. Matt Vespa at Townhall.com explains why all their usual tactics of media and activist harassment and insults didn’t faze either of them.
