Joe Biden wants to spend two trillion dollars on an infrastructure bill but like all huge spending bills advanced by Democrats, it’s stuffed with unrelated pork.
Like the last trillion dollar bill from just a few weeks ago, Democrats may pass this without a single Republican vote.
The Foundation for Economic Education did a deep dive into the bill.
Take a look at what they found:
1. $10 Billion to Create a ‘Civilian Climate Corp’
The Biden administration proposes spending $10 billion to create a “Civilian Climate Corp.” The White House claims that “This $10 billion investment will put a new, diverse generation of Americans to work conserving our public lands and waters, bolstering community resilience, and advancing environmental justice through a new Civilian Climate Corps.”
2. $20 Billion to ‘Advance Racial Equity and Environmental Justice’
The proposal sets aside a whopping $20 billion—more than the latest COVID package spent on vaccines—for “a new program that will reconnect neighborhoods cut off by historic investments and ensure new projects increase opportunity, advance racial equity and environmental justice, and promote affordable access.”
9. $25 Billion for Government Childcare Programs
The plan includes $25 billion “to help upgrade child care facilities and increase the supply of child care in areas that need it most.” According to the White House, “funding would be provided through a Child Care Growth and Innovation Fund for states to build a supply of infant and toddler care in high-need areas.”
Those are just a few examples from a much longer list.
How many more trillion dollar bills do you think the Democrats will ram through in the next two years?
It’s only been three months and they’re already on bill number two.
