10 Absurdly Wasteful Items Tucked Into Democrats’ $3.5 Trillion Tax-and-Spend Monstrosity

from Heritage Foundation,

House Democrats a few weeks ago released the full text of their big-government socialism $3.5 trillion tax-and-spend package.

Many important elements were already clear. It would recklessly boost federal spending at a time of already high inflation, impose ruinous tax hikes when the post-pandemic economic recovery is still vulnerable, and impose an anti-work welfare state.

However, due to the incredible length of the bill—2,465 pages, or about the length of two King James Bibles—there are thousands of separate provisions, far more than can be properly analyzed by legislators or the public.

The following are just 10 of the ridiculous things buried in the bill.

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
