Because if you did you’d realize the outrageously obscene amount of spending and preposterous proposals that are jammed into the massive document.
OK. You can stop laughing now. I can hear you guffawing all the way to my house.
Fortunately the Republican Study Committee chaired by Congressman Jim Banks of Indiana combed through the entire mess and unearthed a complete disaster.
Here are just a few of the radical ideas being pushed:
Perpetuates labor shortage: Continues welfare benefits without work requirements for able-bodied adults without dependents at a time where there are 10.1 million job openings—more openings than there are people looking for work.
Commissions a climate police: Democrats stuffed $8 billion into the bill to commission a cabal of federally funded climate police called the Civilian Climate Corps (CCC) who will conduct progressive activism on taxpayers’ dime.
Includes new incentives for illegal immigration: Illegal immigrants will be eligible to take advantage of Democrats’ new ‘free’ college entitlement as well be eligible for additional student aid and the enhanced child tax credit.
Includes legislative hull for Biden’s vaccine mandate: Increases OSHA penalties on businesses that fail to implement the mandate up to $700,000 per violation and includes $2.6 billion in funding for the Department of Labor to increase enforcement of these penalties .
Pushes Democrats’ wasteful and confusing school lunch agenda: $643 million for, among other things, “procuring…culturally appropriate foods.”
Furthers radical abortion agenda: Does not include the Hyde amendment and would mandate taxpayers pay for abortions.
Drives up costs on Americans’ utility bills: Issues a punitive methane tax and includes a tax on natural gas up to $1,500 per ton that could cost the American economy up to $9.1 billion and cost 90,000 Americans their jobs.
Grants amnesty for millions of illegal immigrants: House Democrats have included in their reconciliation bill a plan to grant amnesty to around 8 million illegal immigrants at a cost of around $100 billion over ten years that would largely be spent on welfare and other entitlements. Trillions more would be spent long term on their Social Security and Medicare.
Increases taxes on Americans at every income level: $2 trillion in tax hikes will fall on those making under $400,000 per year, contrary to what the White House says. Individuals at all income levels will be affected.
Again, this is just a small, partial list.
