The Biden Plan is a Bad Deal

Despite President Biden’s calls for unity, the radical Left are continuing their all-or-nothing crusade of wasteful government spending, blue state bailouts, and burdensome regulations that hinder our economic recovery from the pandemic. Congressional Democrats are using what’s called the budget reconciliation process to pass a massive $1.9 trillion “relief” bill, which will fund their socialist agenda.
The budget reconciliation process is a way to fast-track bills into law. This process is a powerful tool, but it also limits debate on the bill and lowers the number of votes needed for it to pass the Senate. It will allow Congressional Democrats to force through their radical policies, like the Green New Deal and government-run health care, without any bipartisan cooperation.
We cannot afford to write blank checks that will ultimately fall on the backs of hard-working families across the country. The proposed Biden “Stimulus” Plan, combined with the relief bills that have already been signed into law, will cost more than $17,000 per person, which is roughly $69,000 for a family of four. With more than $1 trillion from previous relief bills that has yet to be spent, saddling future generations with more debt in the name of “relief” is reckless.
Since their first day in office, the Biden Administration has been focused on weakening the economy and destroying hundreds of thousands of American jobs. Now, they’re wanting to further increase our dependence on the federal government rather than getting our economy reopened and Americans back to work. At the end of the day, the Biden Plan is a bad deal for the American people.
