During his presidential campaign, Joe Biden sought to paint himself as a moderate. The American people are “looking for results, not a revolution,” he said at a Democrat debate last year, distancing himself from self-described socialist Bernie Sanders.
But turns out Biden is the revolutionary he claimed he wasn’t – and Americans struggling to make ends meet will be worse off as a result.
Biden has already spent trillions on his left-wing laundry list. Now he’s looking to spend $3.5 trillion more. That’s the equivalent of $27,000 in new spending for every single household in America.
It’s telling that some of the most radical members in Congress are the biggest cheerleaders of this bill.
Sen. Sanders, I-Vt., who helped draft the plan as Senate Budget Committee chairman, applauded the astonishing level of spending. Sen. Ed Markey, D-Mass., bragged that “the Green New Deal is in the DNA” of this spending spree, citing progressives’ trademark plan to destroy the U.S. economy as we know it. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., called it an “enormous progressive victory.”
