Express Lane To Socialism: The Truth About The Democrats So-Called “Infrastructure” Plan

Democrats

Congress enacted nearly $6 trillion in extra money through multiple COVID-19 relief packages and the Democrats’ $1.9 trillion nonCOVID spending bill in March.

Given the magnitude of spending and the various programs included in these packages, there are differences in what is considered “COVID” money and it’s hard to track where the money is going in real time but no matter how you slice it, both the U.S. government and the nonpartisan Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget find that about $1.5 trillion has not been spent yet.

$1.5 trillion is not a small chunk of change. The entire federal government spent $4.4 trillion the year before the pandemic began so just the unspent “COVID” money would represent 34 percent of all government spending in a normal year. For example, it could cover the entire cost of Medicare and Medicaid for an entire year with plenty of money left over.

With all of this unspent “COVID” money, a federal deficit that’s triple what it used to be and $28 trillion in national debt, it’s truly unbelievable that Democrats are currently seeking to commit taxpayers to another $4 trillion in new spending this year. They’re being reckless with taxpayers’ money, plain and simple.

The leftist democrats are spending the country out of existence by design! I believe that they actually want to bankrupt the country and then welcome their communist Chinese friends in here to take over! I really believe that!!

Before and during WW2, there were collaborationist leaders in countries other than Germany, who welcomed a Nazi take-over, thinking that they would be rewarded for their treasonous subservitude.
They were left in place by the Nazis until they could be replaced with German military administrators. Then, they were disposed of. A lesson from history not learned.

All I wanna know is, who’s in charge of the Southern Border? Kamala was given the responsibility just before she put her head in the sand. Anybody realize that 300 million people are being led around by idiots wearing masks. We should unmask Joe immediately!! FOR WHAT HE IS or isn’t??

Going to be interesting how America responds to mandate masks again. Australia they are revolting to comply, how Americans do the same. Hope the madness doesn’t continue.

“…who’s in charge of the Southern Border?”

Why, that would be the Mexican Cartels, of course.

The Justice Department is nothing but one crooked leg of the Socialist left and they do not care so long as they can hold power and make large sums of money in the process. The whole justice system needs to be dismantled and done away with and put all the people working there in Cuba for life, end of the problem.

You think the GOP are righteous? Think again! Only a handful of them deserve the title of Republican. In the Tea Party, our saying was: “The Democrats Suck!! The Republicans only suck less.”

It all boils down to the vote in 2022. Please people . . . don’t think your vote doesn’t count. That’s exactly what they ( Democrats , the left, communists, marxists ) want you to think. Besides this senseless spending, we’re seeing wide spread violence in our cities. C.R.T. taught in our public schools, China, Iran, North Korea taking advantage of our weak administration . China threatening our country, and military, if we get involved with ending democracy in Hong Kong, and Taiwan. This white supremacy bullshit , and white privilege that they’re trying to ram down the Americans throats. Small businesses closing because our administration is handing out more money to people to stay home. The list goes on and on. Do you think Biden is calling all the shots? Who is in charge in the White House? It’s scary to say the least . If we don’t take the house back, and gain majority in the Senate in 22, we’re doomed. VOTE IN 2022 !

Vote, huh?
Stalin said it best: “It is enough that the people know there was an election. The people who cast the votes decide nothing. The people who count the votes decide everything.”

Exactly what we saw in Nov. 2020.

Now that the Progressive-Socialists are fully in charge, and on a roll, don’t you know that they are feverishly at work to ensure that the voter backlash against them in 2022 will amount to nothing?
What do you think HR1 was all about? And wait until Big Tech gears-up their Leftist propaganda campaign next year with tons of misinformation/lies and suppression of Conservative voices.
Just make sure you hold onto your guns & ammo……….. oh, wait.
