Experts are warning that President Joe Biden’s $3 to $4 trillion infrastructure plan is extremely wasteful and nothing more than a power grab.
The Biden administration aims to launch the plan this summer and will cover a broad spectrum of projects such as climate change, “Green New Deal” programs, and income equality. According to White House press secretary Jen Psaki, Biden has a “plan” to pay for it.
“The plan represents a huge power grab for the federal government, potentially the largest in decades,” said David Ditch, a budget and transportation associate at the Heritage Foundation.
He added, “The infrastructure portion alone would mean federal involvement in projects that are at the heart of local governance, such as school construction and water systems.”
Giving so much power to the federal government would open these projects up to red tape that already causes a tremendous amount of waste and lost time on projects that include national highways and airport networks, according to Ditch. At the same time, state and local governments become more dependent on Washington for their normal responsibilities, he said.
By expanding the federal government and using the word “infrastructure” as a shield to hide a massive expansion of the welfare state, lawmakers are using the “typically bipartisan nature of the infrastructure issue as a means for left-wing policy wins,” said Ditch. He noted there’s a strong bipartisan appetite for a big spending package focused on traditional infrastructure projects such as roads and bridges.

I read those books when I was in middle school, and I truly do not remember anything in them that could even be close to racist. Then again, everything today is racist. Just the character wearing white underwear is probably “racist” to the left.
