A $1,400 stimulus check, and a $1.9 trillion relief package was just not enough, 21 Democrat senators are determined to run the federal budget dry as they push Biden to include recurring payments in a $3 trillion infrastructure plan.
“We urge you to include recurring direct payments and automatic unemployment insurance extensions tied to economic conditions in your Build Back Better long-term economic plan,” the Democrats wrote in the letter to Biden.”
On the front line was Oregon Senator Ron Wyden who sent the request via a letter to the President. Biden’s infrastructure plan is expected to be introduced Wednesday.
Their concern is not stimulating the economy to cope with the effects of COVID 19. Their concern is expanding the welfare state and building a dependency on the government. The greater the dependency, the greater the power.
This is indicated when they specify that this would build a better “long term economic plan” in doing so, also building a long term dependency and expanding social safety nets at the expense of the American tax payer.
