Joe Biden sits in the Oval Office. He was put there by Americans who voted for a moderate, a Senate hack who was perceived as Mr. Establishment. What they got, in a classic bait and switch, was a man who is blissfully happy or completely unaware that his administration is run by Bernie Sanders acolytes and has become the most left wing administration in American history, even possibly surpassing the regime of the disgraced 44th president. Quite a feat for an underachiever like Joe.
RNC Chairwoman Ronna Romney McDaniel, Mitt is her uncle (bet you didn’t know that), has something to say on the bait and switch. She calls it well. Hopefully, we won’t get fooled again.

McDaniel: During his presidential campaign, Joe Biden sought to paint himself as a moderate. The American people are “looking for results, not a revolution,” he said at a Democrat debate last year, distancing himself from socialist Bernie Sanders. But turns out Biden is the revolutionary he claimed he wasn’t – and Americans struggling to make ends meet will be worse off as a result.
Biden has already spent trillions on his left-wing laundry list. Now he’s looking to spend $3.5 trillion more. That’s the equivalent of $27,000 in new spending for every single household in America. It’s telling that some of the most radical members in Congress are the biggest cheerleaders of this bill.
Sen. Sanders, I-Vt., who helped draft the plan as Senate Budget Committee chairman, applauded the astonishing level of spending. Sen. Ed Markey, D-Mass., bragged that “the Green New Deal is in the DNA” of this spending spree, citing progressives’ trademark plan to destroy the U.S. economy as we know it. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., called it an “enormous progressive victory.”
A quick look at some of the proposals in this socialist wish list explains why. Some $3 billion would potentially go toward “tree equity,” an environmentalist pet project. There’s the $25 million slated for nonprofit organizations to develop “anti-discrimination and bias training” for the health care sector. And another $1 billion could go toward turning government facilities into “high-performance green buildings.”
Still, Biden has the audacity to claim that his Build Back Better agenda costs “zero dollars.” This is a cynical, bald-faced lie.
Everything comes with a price. While Biden’s plan currently costs at least $3.5 trillion, the price tag could actually be as high as $5.5 trillion according to one analysis. New research from the Joint Committee on Taxation shows that families making as little as $50,000 will see a tax hike under Democrats’ reckless tax-and-spending spree. In fact, Biden’s proposal would require the largest tax increase in decades…
Biden bragged that his reckless tax-and-spending sprees would “fundamentally [change] the nature and structure of our economy.” For hard-working Americans, that’s exactly the fear.
