Reconciliation Process
The INVEST Act and the Senate’s bipartisan deal will lay the groundwork for a future reconciliation bill. Reconciliation is a process that allows legislation to pass without it being subject to the filibuster rule. In the past, Congress has been able to do one reconciliation bill per year. Now, rules have been reinterpreted to allow three reconciliation bills this year.

Comparison of provisions in the Build Back Better $3.5T budget. Is this the last grain of sand?

from The Gray Area:
Does the country need $3.5T worth of non-essential spending right now? Is this the last grain of sand? The 'Build Back Better' legislation has yet to be finalized, and each side is spinning the provisions of the bill to their advantage. Here's what we know could be in the package from the Democrat & left leaning media perspective:
  • Establishing universal Pre-K
  • Expanding the child tax credit
  • Making child care more affordable
  • Creating paid family and medical leave program
  • Boosting child nutrition programs
  • Expanding Medicare benefits
  • Extending beefed-up Affordable Care Act subsidies
  • Creating a federal Medicaid expansion program
  • Allowing Medicare to negotiate drug prices
  • Investing in home health care
  • Bolstering health equity
  • Combating climate change
  • Investing more in infrastructure and jobs
  • Dealing with the state and local tax deduction
  • Hiking taxes on the rich and corporations
  • Free community college is out
  • Democrats quietly scramble to include immigration provision in social spending bill .
The following are just 10 of the ridiculous things buried in the bill, from the Republican and right leaning media perspective: 1) $25 Million for “Anti-discrimination and Bias Training” at HHS 2) $200 Million for Presidio Trust, aka “Pelosi’s Park” 3) Welfare for Journalists 4) $1.25 Billion for Activists, Bureaucrats to Go After Landlords 5) $4.5 Billion for Federal Housing Plan Takeover 6) $26.5 Billion for Left-Wing Transportation Programs 7) Extra Funding for Bureaucrats, Ad Campaigns 8) $197 Million to Subsidize Hiring Local Teachers 9) $7.5 Billion “Community” Slush Fund 10) 2 Decades of Funding for Obscure Tech Accounts, plus: 11) In addition, the bill would sink Real Estate. It would be a catastrophe for homeowners, casual investors, professional investors and home prices. Does the country need $3.5T worth of non-essential spending right now? After two rounds of Trillion dollar spending for COVID, some $2T. When we need more people working. When we need to power our economic engine. Why would we want to retard either. Answer is, NO, we don’t. This is political, period. It values no one in the country other than the political class, their financial base and the globalists around the world. This will be the last grain of sand! More From CNN:
