Some in Washington believe that we should spend an additional $3.5 trillion on new programs.
I copied this from the abc.com news site the other day:
Defending a bill not yet fully drafted, Democrats are determined to avoid a deficit financed spending spree. They are growing frustrated by the focus on the proposed $3.5 trillion spending total, arguing far too little attention is being paid to the work they are doing to balance the books. Biden on Friday said he would prefer the price tag described as “zero.”
“The idea is that [the] entire package should pay for itself.”
“We pay for everything we spend,” Biden said at the White House. “It’s going to be zero. Zero.”
Evidently the way he expects to “pay” for this is with our money, through higher taxes.
There is no magic here, only slight of hand.
We deserve better
