Joe Biden unveils $2 trillion tax hike,
tells American employers to suck it up!
Here’s what Colorado’s Democrat delegation had to say about Biden’s $2 trillion tax hike to pay for his $2 trillion spending bill:
So, this is what a true infrastructure week looks like! #AmericanJobsPlan

Just like our roads and bridges, our natural infrastructure is vital to our economy in Colorado and across the West.
Communities across America — from rural counties to cities — will benefit from the president’s plan.

Congress has a massive spending problem, and radical socialists like AOC claim this isn’t “big” enough. We need to get our fiscal house in order. If we continue this reckless spending, it will lead to inflation and endless debt for future generations. https://t.co/80agm1cbkw

Wait, that last one was from a Republican.
So what does the Wall Street Journal report about all these new roads we’re getting as part of the $621 billion in transportation spending?
The plan, which requires congressional approval, calls for modernizing 20,000 miles of roadway
Wait, that’s it?
Only 20,000 miles of roads nationwide will be modernized? With what, gold pavement?
What exactly is Biden going to spend on this $2 trillion in new taxes he’s raising?
According to the Wall Street Journal, all sorts of non infrastructure stuff:
- $300 billion goes to the manufacturing industry
- $400 billion for the aging and disabled
- $213 billion to build housing
- $100 billion for broadband access
That leaves another trillion still unaccounted for that can for for Green New Deal projects and perhaps another bridge to nowhere.
