Joe Biden’s rule has been an unmitigated disaster.
Almost everything he has done over the past year and a half has made the country worse off.
And now, Biden just announced one new plan to completely bankrupt America and drive inflation even higher.
At a time when the “official” inflation rate is standing at over 9%, Joe Biden just announced one plan to bankrupt the country and drive the inflation rate even higher.
Not only is Biden doing absolutely nothing to pull back on government spending, which is at an all-time high at the same time that Federal tax returns have reached levels never before seen, but he’s actively making the situation worse with his latest plan to blow over 2 billion dollars that the Federal government simply doesn’t have.
And the issue he wants to spend this money on? Climate change.
The Guardian reports, “Facing the disintegration of his climate agenda as ferocious heatwaves hit large parts of the world, Joe Biden has unveiled a new plan to push billions of dollars to US cities and states to help them cope better with extreme heat. Biden’s actions include $2.3bn in funding to help communities prepare for heatwaves, droughts and floods, new guidance that allows the federal government to help provide cooling centers and air conditioning, and new planned offshore wind energy leases for the Gulf of Mexico coast.”
Biden’s plan was intended to be a shot taken at West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin, who has earned the ire of his fellow Democrats for not wanting to bankrupt the country as fast as Joe Biden, Nancy Pelosi, and Chuck Schumer want him to.
But even with Manchin’s opposition, it’s clear that Biden plans on steaming ahead no matter the cost, vowing to spend over 2 billion dollars on a project that will only blow up the Federal deficit even more, and likely cause inflation to run even hotter.
Yet even this won’t satisfy the Left.
“The lack of such a declaration, or any sweeping ban of oil and gas drilling on public lands, is unlikely to satisfy those who have called for more vigorous action. Some Democrats have urged the president to declare a national emergency, which would allow him to block crude oil imports or direct the military to work on renewable energy production,” adds The Guardian.
Biden’s plan to address climate change is just pure political grandstanding.
There’s little he can actually do with this money except make the cost of living even more expensive for ordinary people.
What’s more, Biden’s plan to combat climate change will also directly make energy costs for Americans skyrocket, as he has worked tirelessly to make the United States more dependent on oil from countries that hate America, such as Saudi Arabia and Russia.
“But it is unclear whether such an extraordinary use of presidential powers, normally used in a military context, would survive if challenged in the supreme court, or if it would be enough to make a significant dent in planet-heating emissions,” concludes The Guardian.
