대표에 따르면. 자말 보우먼, D-N.Y.: “It’s an example of 조 만친, 백인으로, 그가 흑인에 대해 관심이 없다는 것을 보여줍니다, 그는 라틴계에 관심이 없다, 그는 이민자에 대해 관심이 없다, he doesn’t care about women, and he doesn’t care about the poor.”
Bowman echoed Rep. 코리 부시, D-Mo., “Joe Manchin’s opposition to the Build Back Better Act is anti-black, anti-child, anti-woman, and anti-immigrant.”
그래서, the West Virginia Democrat is a racist, xenophobe, misogynist, and a plutocrat. Congratulations, 평의원. You won the Wokistani superfecta!
만친, his foes claim, imperils democracy itself.
MSNBC’s Mehdi Hasan warns, “Manchin is killing the Biden legislative agenda, and perhaps the future of American democracy too.” The Washington Post’s Jennifer Rubin left no hair unyanked: “Democracy is hanging by a thread.”
Manchin’s rejection of BBB jeopardizes democracy no more than did the downward-pointing thumb of the late Senator John McCain, R-Ariz., which helped Democrats stop the GOP from repealing ObamaCare. Furious Republicans never accused McCain of steering democracy into the crosshairs. 그러나, then again, most Republicans are adults, and too many Democrats are children.
None of the Left’s spittle-flecked hyperventilation explains why Manchin finally spurned BBB:
This monstrosity is too immense, too costly, and too hyperactive. If BBB were a human being, it would need to be duct-taped to a chair and drowned in tranquilizers.
BBB drones on for 2,466 페이지, equivalent to 15 copies of the Benediction Classics edition of Charles Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol.” Among randomly chosen items, BBB addresses ‘‘wildland-urban interface,” “energy savings estimates that accrue to low-income households,” “취득, GOP 상원의원, Biden의 백신 명령에 자금을 지원하기 위한 노력 재개, and construction of a Great Lakes heavy icebreaker,” “qualified clean hydrogen production,” “Body and spa treatments,” and much, 많은, much more.
Biden absurdly declared on September 25 그, “my Build Back Better agenda costs zero dollars.” This is exactly $ 1.75 trillion below congressional Democrats’ sticker price. 그들, 차례로, fake this figure by claiming that BBB’s “life-changing provisions” — as House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D- 칼리프. dubs them — soon would expire.
지금, would Pelosi plant a grove of shade trees at her Napa Valley vineyard and schedule them for extraction between 2022 과 2027?
상관없이, Democrats sponsored child tax credits, day care for all, ObamaCare subsidies, and other socialist goodies and argued that they would vanish in one to six years. This disinformation helped Democrats construct the bright, shining lie that BBB would cost “뿐” $ 1.75 일조.
고맙게도, 이것의. 린지 그레이엄, R-S.C and Rep. Jason Smith, R-Mo., asked the Congressional Budget Office to score BBB without Democrats’ Bernie Madoff-style accounting fraud.
CBO’s honest numbers forecast BBB’s 10-year cost: $ 4.73 일조. 이것은 270 percent of its phony, official price tag. This staggering sum exceeds the inflation-adjust price of World War II, which Manchin estimates at $ 4.5 일조.
BBB also would bbboost the national debt by $ 3 일조. This is light years from Biden’s lie that his bill “adds zero dollars to the national debt.” BBB should be rechristened Build Bankruptcy Better and condemned as a Superfund site amid November’s 6.8 percent year-on-year inflation rate, the highest since June 1982.
BBB is also a Pandora’s box teeming with far-Left vipers and viruses. Among them:
•$ 1.7 billion in payouts to local newspapers. Buh-bye, objectivity!
•$ 2.5 billion in subsidies for trial attorneys who file contingency lawsuits.
•$ 80 billion to deploy 86,852 brand-new IRS agents to squeeze every conceivable dime from taxpayers with annual incomes as low as $ 25,000.
•A Civilian Climate Corps would unleash 300,000 busybodies to hector Americans into “greener” lives.
•Pricier childcare, due to proposed regulations that babysitters be paid, equal to elementary school teachers.
•Universal pre-Kindergarten, all the better to brainwash children with critical race theory, gender confusion, and sexy thoughts at ages 3 과 4 rather than 5 또는 6.
One need not be a rich white guy who hates Blacks, 여자들, and poor people to ponder all of this and yell, “Hell No!”
As for Sen. 만친, he is guilty of only this: His eyes are wide open.
