Government schools have destroyed mathematics because they say it is racist, instead replacing it with TikTok Videos and Cartoons. This makes it much easier for government to pilfer $17,000 from every government-school educated person in order to ‘give’ them back only $1,400.
Does this math add up for you?
We recently reported on the passage of the Democrat bailout bill that was passed in its final form, yesterday by The House. The spending was incredible and focused heavily on hundreds of billions in Democrat handouts. What’s worse, though, is that “less than 9% of the entire spending in this bill actually goes to crushing the virus and helping distribute vaccines and putting shots in arms.” Now, we have a simple breakdown of some of the most egregious theft in American history disguised in the stimulus to ‘help Americans.’
- Less than 9% goes to combating COVID-19.
- Twenty-seven percent (or more than $500 billion) goes to state and local governments.
- Twenty-one percent (or approximately $400 billion) goes to policies that reduce private-sector employment.
- $135 million for the National Endowment for the Arts.
- $135 million for the National Endowment for the Humanities.
- $200 million for the Institute of Museum and Library Services.
- $12 billion for foreign aid.
So, families have been starved and put out of work permanently by government policies. Now, the government seeks to finish them off by robbing them of their wealth and spending it on leftist frivolities like arts and humanities endowments. Regardless of how you feel about the necessity or value of such things, do they have anything to do with the Wuhan CCP virus? Should they be placed ahead of basic necessities of individual Americans who have been unemployed or underemployed for a year or completely lost their businesses? Does any of this make sense if these people were truly intent on helping normal Americans?
Here is the second half of the breakdown, which lists the small percentage of the $1.9 trillion bill that is actually spent this year:
- Five percent ($6 billion) of the $130 billion set aside for K-12 schools.
- Five percent ($250 million) of the $5 billion for Emergency Housing Vouchers.
- Seventeen percent ($7 billion) of the $39 billion for child care.
- Twenty-three percent ($11 billion) of the $50 billion for the Federal Emergency Management Agency.
- None of the $5 billion for homeless assistance.
This begs the question, if it doesn’t need to be spent this year, then how can it possibly be an emergency that warrants such unprecedented theft of individual wealth in order to resolve it?
The Washington Examiner also notes:
“The combined $6 trillion price tag on the COVID-19 stimulus packages OK’d by Congress, including Wednesday’s $1.9 trillion Biden bill, will cost taxpayers the equivalent of $17,000 each, or $69,000 per family, according to a new analysis.”
It also ignores roughly $1 trillion dollars from previous stimulus packages that are currently left unallocated and unspent.
House Minority Leader Rep. Kevin McCarthy, had urged the defeat of the bill saying “This is the reality of the bill before us today: It showers money on special interests but spends less than 9% on actually defeating the virus. But it gives San Francisco $600 million, essentially wiping out 92% of their budget deficit.”
Republicans are not heartless and they do want to help. But not when at least 91% of the bill is just a carte blanche wish list of Democrat spending by the trillions:
Smith, the top Republican on the budget committee, told NPR today, “If this bill was about direct payments to people and putting shots in the arms and vaccines, you would have strong bipartisan support across this Congress and across this country, but less than 9% of the entire spending in this bill actually goes to crushing the virus and helping distribute vaccines and putting shots in arms.”
