Democrats today unveiled their massive, $3.5 trillion budget framework that seeks to provide new taxpayer funds for everything from fighting climate change, to (more!) infrastructure, and expanding entitlement programs. The proposal led a GOP congressman to rightly describe the bill as “hurtling towards a terrifying fiscal future that will bankrupt us.”

As he released the plan today, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) said, “I want to especially thank the chair of the Budget Committee, Senator Sanders. He kept his nose to the grindstone and led our caucus on the budget.”

In his role as chairman of the Senate Budget Committee, Sanders is finally getting his day in the sun to enact his socialist agenda. Sanders is a self-described socialist. The Democrats aren’t even hiding their socialistic schemes any longer.

Reportedly, Schumer’s goal is for the Democrat-led committees to allocate money to specific targets by September 15th.

The proposal includes:

  • $726 Billion for Health, Labor, and Education Committee
  • $107 Billion for the Judiciary Committee
  • $135 Billion for the Committee on Agriculture Nutrition and Forestry
  • $332 Billion for the Banking Committee
  • $198 Billion for the Energy and Natural Resources Committee

Rep. Peter Meijer (R-Mich.) took to Twitter to explain the problems with this plan and put it in historical context: “As Democrats bundle together a $3,500,000,000,000 budget reconciliation package, it’s worth putting in perspective the enormous sums already paid out during prior COVID stimulus bills. We are already *more than double* New Deal spending on a per capita basis. (1/2)”

He continued, showing the problems with America’s current, massive deficit spending: “Here is where federal debt is headed *without* $3.5T in new spending plucked from the air. Both parties have a bias towards massive deficit spending, but we are hurtling towards a terrifying fiscal future that will bankrupt us. We need actual solutions, not slogans. (2/2)”

As families continue to fill the pinch from inflation—driven by massive government stimulus spending—this new spending will do more harm than good, both in the short and long term.
