(UnitedVoice.com) – On Tuesday, August 10, the US Senate passed a $1 trillion bipartisan infrastructure bill and sent it to the House for consideration. Now, America is about to learn a lesson by feeling the full brunt of its choice to elect Democrats to control the legislative and executive branches of the federal government as they set their sights on the next big thing. If the Democrats manage to shove their $3.5 trillion left-wing agenda down America’s throat, the consequences could be permanent.
As the government wastes your money on left-wing causes, it could be forced to come for your wallet to pay for its reckless spending. Consider this, in just two years, the federal deficit grew by $7 trillion. That’s the amount of debt the US collected in its first 228 years. Now, add the $1 trillion bipartisan deal and another $3.5 trillion partisan left-wing push, and where does that leave us?
Senate Clears Major Hurdle in Rush to Force the Left’s Agenda Down America’s Throat
The massive $3.5 trillion “human infrastructure” proposal promises to provide free community college, expand the welfare state, transform healthcare and immigration, fight climate change, and tax corporations and the wealthy. It’s a linchpin of nightmares the Left has dreamed of imposing on the country for years.
While the Democrats are trying to act quickly ahead of raising the debt ceiling and preparing a 2021-2022 federal budget, the radical partisan proposal is not a done deal. If even one Democratic Senator doesn’t agree, the bill could die a fast death.
Two weeks ago, Sen. Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ) said she would not vote for the bill due to the massive spending. On Wednesday, August 11, Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) again expressed reservations about what’s in the bill and indicated it would need profound changes to garner his support.
Despite the threats against the reconciliation bill, Schumer hopes the Senate will adopt the measure by the end of the week. If so, House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-MD) announced the House would be recalled from its summer recess on August 23 to begin the reconciliation adoption process. The House initially scheduled its return to Washington on Sept. 20.
What Does the Massive Proposal Mean to You?
America spent $4.1 trillion, adjusted for inflation, fighting World War II. The go-it-alone Democratic reconciliation partisan proposal would be the largest peacetime spending bill by the federal government in US history. Financially, it could put the country in dire straits. Who’s going to own the debt and ultimately pay for it? Every American from the bottom up.
According to a new survey, Americans don’t believe President Joe Biden, who said he wouldn’t raise taxes on anyone making less than $400,000. They might be right to be concerned. Biden didn’t say anything about increasing fees and surcharges or future tax increases, such as a per-mile vehicle tax the Democrats are considering in their bill. Corporations and the wealthy don’t have enough money to pay for the new debt accumulations on top of the existing debt with this amount of spending.
The poll says 61% of Americans believe Biden will raise taxes on the middle class.
Additionally, 53% believe tax hikes hurt the economy, and nearly 60% say increased spending leads to inflation. That might explain why only 22% of voters want Congress to increase spending.
One doesn’t need a degree from Harvard to know Democrats are more harmful to Americans than they are good. As former President Barack Obama reminded Americans in his own words, elections have consequences.
Yes, they do, and we’re about to reap those consequences if Moderate Democrats cave to the Left, which could happen. It’s never a good situation when Conservatives are forced to count on unreliable Democrats to do the right thing.
Stay tuned. There’s going to be a lot to say in the days and weeks ahead.
