President Joe Biden released his budget for the new fiscal year last week, and while many words could be used to describe its far-left policy proposals, perhaps the most important is “reckless.”
The price tag for Biden’s budget is a whopping $6 trillion, and it includes absolutely massive increases in domestic spending.
Among the laundry list of big-ticket items proposed by the Biden administration are $174 billion for electric vehicles, $100 billion to expand high-speed internet, $200 billion for “free” universal pre-K, and $109 billion for “free” community college.
To partially offset the gargantuan costs of these programs, Biden wants Congress to increase taxes by $3.6 trillion, including one of the largest tax hikes on corporations in U.S. history. (The corporate income tax rate would increase from 21% to 28%.)
The tax increases on corporations and some small business owners wouldn’t come close to covering the costs of Biden’s budget, and they might be enough on their own to trigger a recession. After all, America is, in case President Biden has forgotten, still in the midst of recovering from one of the largest economic catastrophes in world history.
