Senate Democrats want a federal budget of $3.5 trillion dollars. This should alarm every single American.
This is beyond big government. The vast majority of people cannot even conceive of how massive one trillion dollars is. It’s a million million.
Democrats want more than three times that much.
ABC News reports:
Democrats land on $3.5 trillion budget agreement
Senate Democrats said they have reached a $3.5 trillion budget agreement. This is the first step in unlocking a process that Democrats plan to use to pass many of President Joe Biden’s American Families Plan priorities with a simple majority of votes.
Majority Leader Chuck Schumer said this budget package, coupled with the bipartisan infrastructure bill currently being negotiated amongst members, comes “very, very close” to what Biden asked for when he laid out his families plan.
“Every major program that President Biden asked us for is funded in a robust way,” Schumer said. “In addition we are making some additions to that.”
On the heels of this announcement, Schumer said the president will join Senate Democrats for their caucus lunch Wednesday to discuss the plan with lawmakers.
Schumer announced the package alongside members of the Budget Committee, though it’s still not certain that all Democrats will support the measure. Unanimous support will be necessary to pass the bill.
The package will be, according to Sen. Mark Warner, D-Va., fully paid for. He did not give details on how the reconciliation bill will be funded, but Democrats have favored a hike in corporate tax rates, not unlike the one Biden originally proposed.
Naturally, this massive budget would include a number of pet projects for the left.
⚫ Adding new dental, vision and hearing benefits to Medicare
⚫ Universal pre-K
⚫ A Civilian Climate Corps

Democrats are afraid they are going to lose in the 2022 midterms, so they’re trying to grab as much as they can now.
That’s not fair to the American people.
