Build Back Better Bill Includes $2.25 Billion for ‘Climate Police’

The portrait of President Franklin D. Roosevelt hangs front and center in “President” Joe Biden’s Oval Office. Like Roosevelt, Biden is an unabashed supporter of big government spending. Biden believes to his core that the federal government can spend $1.75 trillion to solve just about any problem — from child care to global warming — facing the country nowadays.

“Build Back Better” … Yeah, by spending ridiculously and putting us further into debt.

That spending is packaged in the eclectic “Build Back Better” bill that chronicles what federal big spenders call “investments” in multi-billion-dollar programs. For example, child care, home care and tax credits for families with children amount to $750 billion, just $3 billion shy of the Pentagon’s budget of $753 billion in 2021.

Topping the list is the $550 billion cost of clean energy and climate investments, which the White House Press Release describes as the “largest effort to combat climate change in American History.” The program “will start cutting climate pollution now, and deliver well over one gigaton…of greenhouse gas emissions reductions in 2030…”

Ironically, Biden’s 10,000-mile round trip to Europe on the Air Force One jet to attend the UN climate change conference recently dumped 2.2 million pounds of carbon into the atmosphere. Also, the fraudulent president’s ground transportation in large SUVs emit over 10 times more polluting fumes than the average car.

$2.25 Billion for So-Called “Climate Police”

Hidden as just a sliver of the $550 billion for climate change spending is the $2.25 billion to be used for the creation of a Civilian Climate Corps. It is to pay for “staffing salaries, and other workforce needs.” The Civilian Climate Corps’ purpose is to manage National Forest System land. It also funds “projects on non-Federal land and other Department of Agriculture programs including rural and urban conservation and tree planting projects.”

Lawmakers like Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-Colo.) worry that jobs created by this money might go to illegal aliens. She has introduced three different amendments to defund what she calls “the Climate Police.”

The goal is to employ 1.5 million young Americans over the next five years, paying an hourly wage of $15 for this “Climate Police.”

The Corps’ job, according to the two legislators who introduced the program, Sen. Edward J. Markey (D-Mass) and Rep Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), is to expand the New Deal-era Civilian Conservation Corps and “complete federally-funded projects that help communities respond to climate change and transition to a clean economy.”

The Entire Build Back Better Bill Could Be in Jeopardy

While Civilian Conservation Corps funding has the potential for bipartisan support, everything else in the nearly $2 trillion Build Back Better legislation could be gutted or frozen in partisan jams until after the 2022 midterms. The White House wants the bill passed quickly. A potential Republican majority could scrap the legislation or carve the more popular parts up into single bills.

The White House Claims Costs Will Be Offset

The White House insists that the $1.75 billion program costs will be offset by, among other things, raising taxes and closing loopholes for the rich. Those offsets, the White House budgeters admit, are “estimates, subject to confirmation.”

What the White House is estimating is that the $1.75 trillion cost will be zeroed out with a $20 billion net revenue increase. Here’s what they hope will happen:

  • The IRS will be beefed up to collect more and close the tax gap: $400 billion.
  • The international financial community will stop rewarding U.S. companies that ship jobs and profits overseas: $350 billion.
  • Congress will agree to a 15% corporate minimum tax: $325 billion.
  • Wealthy tax payers will willingly pay an income tax surcharge: $230 billion.
  • Business owners will be limited in claiming business losses: $170 billion.
  • Congress will close the Medicare tax loophole for the wealthy: $250 billion.
  • The Trump-era prescription drugs rebate rule will be repealed: $145 billion.
  • Wall Street will sit still for a stock buybacks tax: $125 billion.

Those hypothetical offsets amount to an optimistic $1.995 trillion. They look great on paper, but judging from the reaction of a key Democrat vote in the Senate, Joe Manchin (D-WV), the entire bill could be tanked. Manchin told CNN that energy companies are already doing what the bill wants to pay them to do — transitioning to clean energy.

Thanks to Democrats, ironically, “Build Back Better” may be dead.

  1. One of the constant inclusions in any bill proposed by a Democrat-run House is to fill in the loop holes in almost every paragraph with some type of garbage – commonly called “pork.” For the most part, “pork” is just another word for bullshit. Voters show their stupidity by electing people who are prone to follow whoever says they are the experts. To wit, AOC and her little group of anti-American assholes who will support anything that seems to be totally ridiculous. Somehow, by some unexplained reasons, some of these elected “officials” managed to get some college or university to give them an educational degree. They then believe that they are the answer to any and all problems – even when there are no problems. They quickly learn how to exploit the world with their new-found ability to “steal everything they see or touch” in order to live like the Pelosi Clan. Many studies have proven that our National Education System teaches students from Kindergarten through college communistic means of existence – Take! Take! Take! It is no wonder that so many of our elected politicians thrive on corruption. They are taught to simply take everything they can by any means possible. The Democrats do not seem to have any common sense in trying to do what they are supposed to be doing – representing their constituents. If the Democrats are stupid enough to get them elected, then the Democrats must also be too stupid to realize what a waste of humanity they have chosen to “lead” them. Dishonesty is but just another word to describe the prime trait of Democrat elected officials of today. The Pelosi Clan, Mad Maxine and her daughter, Biden and his family, and tens of thousands of other Democrats will someday succumb to the spoils of dishonesty, corruption, and even unpatriotic actions. There is an old saying that goes,
    “He who lives by the sword shall also perish by the sword.”

    1. Contact the Daily Wire, which is in tune to the Siri’s and his puppet dem admin. and put this out. We the people must fight the fight for our Freedom and true Democracy and this is well said. The Storm is Here.

  2. We must stop calling these traitors “ democrats “
    They are nothing but a corrupt bunch of marxists/ socialist thugs who want to bankrupt America, destroy everything,,put the entire economy down and then start from 0 based on their marxist agenda ( this is exactly what they mean by “ build back better “ )
    That’s the truth !!!!

  3. brandon is a slime bucket and a corrupt pig. they are stoking the fires in H*** for him and i cannot wait for him to go to his final reward.
