President Biden, the so-called “moderate” president of the United States, rolled out a $2 trillion infrastructure plan that is a Green-New-Deal-level Leftist betrayal of the millions of Americans who voted him into the office under the guise that he was a centrist.
The plan seeks to advance “environmental justice,” expand Medicaid and destroy freelance jobs via the PRO Act. It seeks to “eliminate racial and gender inequities in research and development and science, technology, engineering, and math,” and proposes to spend more money on electric vehicles ($174B), than on repairing and modernizing our roads, bridges, ports, waterways, and airports ($157B).
In sum, only about a quarter of the plan has to do with “infrastructure” in the traditional sense, similar to how Biden’s COVID-19 “relief” bill had very little to do with fighting the virus. Biden proposes to pay for this $2 trillion boondoggle by raising the taxes from 21 to 28 percent on corporations that fuel our economy and provide jobs.
Former President Trump’s statement on the proposal is worth reading. In part, it says,
“Biden’s policy would break the back of the American Worker with among the highest business tax rates in the developed world. Under Biden’s plan, if you create jobs in America, and hire American workers, you will pay MORE in taxes—but if you close down your factories in Ohio and Michigan, fire U.S. workers, and move all your production to Beijing and Shanghai, you will pay LESS. It is the exact OPPOSITE of putting America First—it is putting America LAST!
Companies that send American jobs to China should not be rewarded by Joe Biden’s Tax Bill, they should be punished so that they keep those jobs right here in America, where they belong.”
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi wants the House to pass Biden’s infrastructure package by July 4th. Americans already made a historic mistake by allowing Congress to pass a $1.9 trillion COVID “relief” bill—now let’s hope we don’t make this $2 trillion mistake.
