Hell no , he simply see it as a demoRAT plan and he dives in ass first !


And, AND as Larry Summers points out, it’s funded and doesn’t add to the deficit…:sunglasses:

Addendum to the op….

Notably, the CBO’s bottom-line estimate of the effects of the bill on the deficit does not include revenues from the Democratic proposal to increase funding for IRS enforcement. The budget office separately estimated that the IRS provision would bring in $207 billion in revenues over 10 years. The Treasury Department has said that the provision would yield $400 billion. SO, about a wash……

The name of the bill is a lie. The ONLY thing getting built back better is the TALIBAN.
The bill should be called, the DEMONAZI INFLATION ACT.

In other words the bill is paid for by raising taxes on the middle class and the poor.

Meanwhile it creates MORE POOR.


We (taxpayers, not Democrats) can only hope this bill gets shutdown by Sinema and or Manchin.
There are some good provisions in this bill, but it’s like a smoothie (stay with me, here) - a wedge of whole lemon, unseeded, really adds dramatically to it’s flavor; even half a lemon seed will ruin the whole smoothie and turn it bitter. This bill has a number of lemon seeds that the leftists threw in.
The basics of the bill are interesting, but all the other offensive things they tried to hide in this leviathin warrant the whole thing being tossed - like a bad smoothie.

WTF . So the very same logic then one can spend $1670 of their budget and say the ONLY spent $358 . Is that the dem fuzzy math trick ? Do YOU really believe by spending $1,750,000,000,000 today we will ONLY see a hit of $367,000,000,000 over the next TEN YEARS ? THAT OVER TEN YEARS ??? Where did they find a person dumb enough to float that turd at the taxpayers ?

No bill coming from either side of the isle is perfect, and perfect shouldn’t be the enemy of good. There’s always pork or something that somebody doesn’t like. And the middle class and poor are NOT going to be taxed, only those with income in excess of 400K….
I seriously doubt that Manchin or Sinema scuttle the BBB…….

A very sad state of affairs.

The wealthy get a tax cut.
Love the tax cuts in the SALT tax.

The poor get a tax increase.
The excise tax on nicotine products contained within the BBB bill will harm public health and alienate millions of voters. The Vaping tax.

Everyone gets higher energy costs.
The methane tax would amount to a 17% increase on an average family’s natural gas bill.

Then again upper middle class and the wealthy benefit from the Charging stations and new EV auto subsidies. The middle class and poor certainly will never afford the new auto. By the way, the cost to charge from the NEW charging stations has yet to be discussed.

Why is it you cheer lead for legislation without having a clue as to the content?

As more money in the economy has fueled the current inflation the infrastructure bill and this new welfare bill will certainly fuel more inflation. Are you ready for higher interest rates and the coming recession?

We estimate that the House bill would reduce long-run economic output by nearly 0.4 percent and eliminate about 107,000 full-time equivalent jobs in the United States.
It would also reduce average after-tax incomes for the top 80 percent of taxpayers over the long run.
Reinstate the Superfund tax on crude oil and imported petroleum at 16.4 cents per gallon (indexed to inflation) Sure to raise the price of gas.

Something special for the wealthy:
Raise the cap on the state and local tax (SALT) deduction from $10,000 to $80,000 and extend this cap through 2030.

The proposed 15 percent minimum tax on corporate book income is the most economically damaging provision in the bill, reducing GDP by 0.1 percent and costing about 25,000 jobs.

The bill would provide a credit for any qualified commercial electric vehicle placed in service by a taxpayer. The credit would equal up to 30% of the basis of a fully electric vehicle or 15% of the basis of a hybrid vehicle. The poor and middle class in this country are sue to be happy about saving on their taxes.

The list begins as the law is published.

As a side note, do you think for an instant business paying higher taxes will not react with cuts?

I predict it passes the senate……

We also hear there are concerns now that extreme weather, a result of GCC, is threatening the nations power grids and that there may be breakdowns this winter. So much of America’s infrastructure is in disrepair and dated. US infrastructure used to be rated number one in the world and is now number 13 and for political reasons people are opposing infrastructure spending bills….:roll_eyes:

Perhaps they shouldn’t be decommissioning so many power plants.

p.s. The Grid is privately owned by the utilities which are controlled by the state utilities commissions.

This is an example of what an uninformed person like yourself can do spreading half truths.
