A blank check for socialism
Washington, DC – By now you’ve probably heard of President Biden’s $ 3.5 trillion “Build Back Better” bill and all the empty promises it contains. The truth is, he will do nothing to build our country.
Instead, it is a blank check to bring our country into socialism.
This bill will change the way of life for all Americans. It is full of sweeping policy changes that will increase the costs of all goods, task the federal government with educating your children, prioritize climate policy over national security, violate the privacy of every American, and overwhelm future generations with debts.
In an attempt to phase out fossil fuels, this legislation would impose a “levy” on all methane emissions, including in our agricultural industry. We all know that a levy is just a tax and that consumers will pay it. The tax is estimated at $ 6,500 per dairy cow, $ 2,600 per head of cattle and $ 500 per hog each year. It is more than what the animals are worth, it will lead to the bankruptcy of the breeders.
Democrats are touting this bill to provide $ 200 billion in federal spending for “free” universal kindergarten and community college. What Democrats are not promoting is that states will be required to pay 50% of the cost once this measure is implemented.
The same goes for the free provisions of community colleges. States will also be required to pay 25% of the two-year community college fee. Nothing is ever free. States will foot that bill too, not just Washington.
The Biden administration argues that the new Internal Revenue Service (IRS) provisions in the bill will narrow the tax gap, but this is just one glaring example of federal overshoot. The IRS would require banks to report transaction data for any account with at least $ 600 in cash each year, violating the privacy of what Americans do with their money.
These are just a few of the worst provisions of this bill and there are thousands more that bring us closer to full socialism. And beyond that, it calls for the highest sustained federal spending level in US history, which will burden our future generations with massive debt.
Democrats want government to control every aspect of our lives and that is exactly what they are proposing. If this bill is enacted, it is the end of the American dream and the beginning of government dependence.
