Here’s what is in the $1.75 trillion Biden budget plan

…from the Washington Post

[ Editor’s Note: Better late then never. The Dems beat the clock with not much time to spare to get a deal ready to vote on. Getting something done could clinch the Virginia governor race, which would avoid a big momentum loss to the Trumpers who have been throwing wrenches into the gears of the Biden economy to boost their own efforts for the Congressional elections next fall.

Up until now, the Dems have been a circular firing squad, with the far left seeming like they are brain dead to the reality of the razor thin margin they have to pass ANYTHING.

Yet you see Bernie and the Muslim Wonderwoman trying to boost their street cred with their own constituencies that they are their superman of woman warriors.

Meanwhile even the dumbest Trumper is sitting back with popcorn and a beer and watching the fun of the Democrats fighting like cats and dogs, which makes them look clueless at ruling competently.

Even Biden’s low polls did not dissuade the Democratic Left from running out the clock to the last minute. As for Biden, his original huge budget plan is a self inflicted wound, and unnecessary, as he should have attempted this in two stages.

That looks like what may be shaping up now, trying to get half of the desired spending in the current budget proposal and trying to get the rest later, like after the 2022 elections, if they do not cede control to the Trumper Republicans.

The Democratic Left will historically go down in the archives of this event as holding their own partisan wish list above the party’s interest.

The irony here is that Trump’s incredibly stupid attempts to flip the Georgian vote brought the Democratic vote out in huge numbers, where the Republi-dummies lost two Senate seats.

The Bernie crowd’s attempted kidnapping of the budget was the Democrat version of how to shoot yourself in the head to show what a big wheeler dealer you areJim W. Dean ]

President Biden on Thursday unveiled a roughly $1.75 trillion blueprint for overhauling the country’s health care, climate, education and tax laws, as he seeks to break an ongoing logjam among his party’s liberals and moderates that have stalled his economic agenda for months.

The plan includes some of Biden’s earliest policy priorities, including new spending to enhance child care and offer prekindergarten free to all American families.

But it also shelved some of Democrats’ most fervent plans, including an effort to provide paid leave to millions of workers — one of many casualties in the party’s efforts to reduce its original $3.5 trillion price tag.

Biden presented the plan on Capitol Hill in a private meeting with House Democrats earlier Thursday, after which many Democrats said they are still negotiating its specifics and haggling over what’s in and out of the package.

He still must convince lawmakers including Sens. Joe Manchin III (D-W.Va.) and Kyrsten Sinema (D-Ariz.), who helped drive Democrats to scale back their policy ambitions in the first place.

  • Extension until 2025 of expanded premium subsidies for more Americans who purchase health plans through Affordable Care Act marketplaces, as begun in the spring through the American Rescue Plan law.
  • Allow until 2025 low-income people in a dozen states that have not expanded Medicaid to buy ACA health plans without paying a monthly premium.
  • Expansion of Medicare benefits for older Americans to include hearing benefits.

  1. They Chose $3.5 Trillion Because…

    It’s Exactly What USA Spends On Just Ratheon, Lockheed & Boeing.

    Only real hangup is the extent to which they don’t hammer this home. Like…Bernie* does.
    (+ that Cuckservatives worship Mammon.)

    * He’s not Prez, only because… He didn’t hammer home that…

    Bernie beat Trump AND all Dems in veteran AND active duty donations. In 2016 AND 2020.

    But VT doesn’t hammer this home, or even mention it either.

  2. “The Democrat’s liberals, and the Democrat’s moderates.”
    The Republican’s conservatives, and the Republican’s moderates.
    It’s funny how these inside “the party” factions can be conveniently exploited to go back on expressed desires to do big things for the people, but never stand in the way of doing big things for the oligarchs.

  3. Don’t be fooled into thinking that Democratic internecine conflict is to blame for Biden’s inability to get his program through Congress, Jim. Yes, it is not helping, but the Cult of Trump is the real obstructionist here. Everything they do is designed to destroy democracy and the rule of law in the USA. Netanyahu bragged about this in 1990, “America is a golden calf and we will suck it dry, chop it up, and sell it off piece by piece until there is nothing left but the world’s biggest welfare state that we will create and control.” Most Zionists in the USA are so-called Christian. They have morphed into being the American Taliban and their ultimate goal is to turn the USA into some kind of Christo-fascist regime that will be the end of the USA as we know it.

    • Both parties are doing the will of their Masters, while making it look like there is some kind of opposition to the whole thing.

    • Yes, both parties do the will of their masters, but the Cult of Trump is a wholly different animal. They want wing-tipped jack boots exchanged for MAGA hats and assault rifles, corporatism replaced with overt Christo-fascism, Steve Bannon style.

    • Julio both parties are lodged in the ass of Israel you’re right. But the masters of the left are far more digestible than that trash called likud who uses everything from a retarded Trump to the losers down South with their bible thumpers to achieve full submission to their rules.

    • Yes Newt, but the modern state of “Israel” is a contraption of control used by money-power Mammon in working its Satanic plan, in a blind fulfillment of a Plan of even Greater design, don’t you think?
      Just like ancient Pharaoh.
