I hope this posts correctly. It's a visual representation of the spending proposed in Biden's last 2 packages.

This is a massive amount of money and IMO we aren't seeing nearly the media scrutiny something this big requires. There are some things in here I could support, but we there is no details and no accountability. We are supposed to marvel in how "bold" it is and ignore the fine print. IMO, if passed, this will be poorly administrated and will blow up the debt with significantly less ROI than processed.

Wow. And they're probably lying about this anyway so I'm guessing if they pass it's much worse where the money really goes.

Further point... one thing of many that I hate about government is why do we have to ram these massive spending bills that are unsustainable and try to cover 50 things? Why can we not sit down and do a simple infrastructure bill? We call it that and then try to cover a wishlist with it.

You could do a simple bill that would appropriate to roads, utilities, broadband, and other related things.

I mean what I consider infrastructure it looks like that's less than 15% of the cost of that bill.

Right. This could have been 20 bills, not 2. Even then, some would be large.
Congress has really embraced the mega bill the past few cycles. They can name it after the most popular provision, stuff a bunch of other stuff, and then be outraged that the opposition opposed "Popular Provision X."

Because the senate is broken. The filibuster is abused. It makes it so that the only way things are passed are through massive spending bills.

Agree very much.

Stop with these bloated catch-all bills.

Tailor them to their intended purpose.

The Senate would perform much better if both sides stopped lying about their intentions and tried to find common ground they could agree to jointly support. If the only way to get support for your measures is by blatant misrepresentation, besides being ashamed of your methods, perhaps you should remember that your tribe must take a back seat to your mission for the greater good of your nation.

True

The problem is that the elected politicians would lose a ton of support if they just came out and said that they want to do.

Wow thanks for the replies. Great to see some consensus on some common sense. We may not agree on the specifics but at least we all agree how broken these bloated bills are.

This, I completely agree with... Also, quit calling them names for the emotional sell. Example: Biden's family bill he proposed the other night. What's really in it?

BTW, both parties do this...

This looks like an incredibly inefficient waste of money that one day we will have to pay for. We could probably accomplish many of the same tasks by properly utilizing private enterprise and pay less than 20% of the costs. If we eliminate most of the wasteful aspects of these proposals, we could likely have great improvements at 10% of these numbers.

There are no incentives to force a large government to perform tasks at cost competitive rates. That is why having government mandate limits to prevent private enterprise from overly accentuating profits is a better solution than having government actually run projects and should be the preferred solution for taxpayers. If our national media honestly evaluated methods as an independent observer, everyone would know these facts and we wouldn't have the one-sided bias we see in our national media that ignores basic fundamentals from science and economics.

This is my though process for all politicians who are still pushing lockdowns and mask wearing. If I go get the vaccine and you tell me I still can't so into restaurants without a mask, I still shouldn't get together with friends, still not allowed to have concerts or sporting events, and still need to wear a mask and social distance from people then why should I get the vaccine. There is no benefit to it.

God I'm so frustrated at the messaging! We'd already have more shots in the arms if it weren't for our corrupt government trying to keep people afraid and restricted.

It's really bad mixed messaging too. Want everyone to get a vaccine so we can open up? Then start letting people go back to normal if they're vaccinated! Set public, concrete benchmarks for reopenings and ending mask mandates. Give the public an incentive to encourage their friends and family to get vaccinated.

The lefties have to make sure that Sleepy Joe is the one that saved us all from the mean orange man and Covid. In order to do that they have to make sure everyone is scared and under their control.

Good thing about most people is that we can think for ourselves. The MSM will goose step in line with the SOCIALIST PARTY. Fact. Whatever narrative the party wants them to focus on they will do it.

Did anyone happen to see or hear about the special election in Texas for an open house seat? It was most likely going to be GOP win but you know what party wasn't even competitive?

It seems like that article does a nice job of demonstrating that the more government does, the more damage is inflicted on its citizens. Big government is bad government.

That is the reason these Trump supporters aren't getting the vaccine, I'll bet... these people are mocked as being rednecks, etc... etc... etc... The funny thing, these people are a whole lot smarter than the liberals.

Biden, and the hacks in his administration, really don't know how to get a message out. Stop, this is exactly what they want to do. This is so they can keep the knee on the neck of those that question them.

Wait a minute....if the Trump supporters are so smart (and purportedly, against the government telling them what to do), why do they need good messaging from the Biden admin to go get a shot that may well save their lives and/or that of loved ones?

Its a no brainer, barring other health issues. But because Biden is also an idiot, I'm confused, so I'll just sit around and gripe.

Or you know, they could all just move to India.

*BTW, I agree the messaging is horrible....and what is worse is that the media just puts it out there, unquestioned. I really don't get that in this attack dog media-world we live in today (obviously, I do get why this particular messenger is not being attacked).

You and your SOCIALIST PARTY yuck it up all you want... you have about 1 year and 8 months left of being in power.

You'll still have Sleepy Joe in the White House but you won't have either the House or Senate.

Enjoy your little run. It's coming to an end and when it does I hope the GOP curb stomps the hell out of every single leftist policy that was put in place and makes sure by hook or by crook you and your ilk never see power again.

You forgot to bold SOCIALIST PARTY

Suggestion: Not sure if you're doing this but maybe you should save this post to Microsoft Word so that it's easily copied and pasted so that you can just add it to every post you make, that way it'll save you some time. Maybe you already do this, but just want to make it easy for you since you post the same three ideas in every post. That way, all you have to do is change the date of when the GOP curb stopping election is completed.

LOL, your ilk? I voted for Trump (though it made me feel ill to do so for such a lout of a person) and every other GOP candidate on my ballot.

Such a blind man that you can't read a post and see that i clearly called out Biden for his messaging...just think its hilarious that people like you use his bad messaging as an excuse for other GOPs to not get the vaccine. It so hilariously hypocritical. But hey, you'll always have the SOCIALIST PARTY to rail against, lol.

It's always like that. Trump just antagonized it more than Bush did. God, could you imagine if Bush sold arms to drug dealers in Mexico that were then used to kill innocent victims? The NYT would still be writing oped's about it to this day. Benghazi? IRS targeting liberal organizations? Indiscriminate drone strikes killing the brown people in the ME? The blatant double standards from ALL major media platforms is just disgusting.

The MSM is the propaganda arm for the SOCIALIST PARTY.

President Trump just called them out for it and they coordinated attacks on him with surgical precision. They'd put a BS story out there they knew was false...let it spin a day or two and then do a bottom of the back page retraction.

If they aren't at the border on a daily basis running stories on the crisis that is going on now that is all you need to know about the "fair and unbiased" journalists we have in this country.

If Trump wasn't enough, the coverage of Biden should put the nail in the coffin that the MSM is just the propaganda arm of the Democratic Party. Lack of coverage of the the border and Kamala's milk carton status as head of the crisis. Zero commentary on how neither the president nor the VP sit in on the governor conference calls re managing coronavirus strategy. Biden saying it's your patriotic duty to wear a mask then visiting 96 year old without masks for a photo shoot. Daily gaffe after daily gaffe, yet crickets. The country is getting close to needing a revolution.

The Socialism/Communism thing is Butt Hurting people here. I would like to propose what I think is the real terminology some on here prefer...

State Capitalism

State Capitalism exist in Communist states (China). State Capitalism is fond of a Globalist agenda. State Capitalism picks winners and losers. State Capitalism coerce's people and companies to get what they want done. State Capitalism creates a bigger divide between rich and poor. State Capitalism creates inhumane policies that ultimately lead to the execution of its people.State Capitalism destroys individual freedoms.

So, the above is probably a good description of some on here...
