The ink is barely dry on Washington's $1.9 trillion COVID spending proposal and $1.2 trillion "infrastructure" bill, and lawmakers are already using the same "go big" rhetoric to pass another nearly $2 trillion in partisan spending.
Senator Bernie Sanders' reconciliation proposal is shaping up to be incredibly costly, totaling $1.75 TRILLION - paid for by one of the largest tax increases in history, and much of it has nothing to do with "building back better."
Worst of all, supporters of this multi-trillion dollar spending plan claim with a straight face that it will cost nothing, “zero dollars.” They believe that if they raise taxes high enough, it won’t cost you anything. Does that make any sense to you? How can spending trillions ever cost nothing?
Make no mistake, these spending bills will increase the federal debt, increase interest rates, and increase inflation – but will decrease the value of your paycheck! Email your legislators and the White House right now! Tell them to end Washington Waste, stop the spending spree, and reject these proposals.
We can could rebuild our economy, make improvements to infrastructure, and address other critical needs without massive tax increases and trillions in new spending.
