A darker transformation | The spokesperson-magazine
McMorris Rodgers complains that Build Back Better is negatively “transforming” our country and “imposing” debt on our children that they will never be able to pay off – in this case, roughly $ 160 billion over ten years. So she voted against her investments in child care, preschool, senior care, lower child education costs, child nutrition, clean energy, lower drug costs on ordinance, affordable housing and affordable higher education.
Let’s be honest. Too many Americans cannot afford these basics. They need help.
She had no reluctance to vote for massive tax cuts in 2017, which added an estimated $ 2 trillion to the debt our children will never be able to pay off. Do the math: that’s 12.5 times the Rebuild Better debt. Look at its social advantage: the rich and the corporations pocketed the money. He didn’t go to jobs. Much of it has gone into corporate stock buybacks, premium padding for corporate CEOs, and enriching the stock portfolios of the rich. By the way, the tax cuts for the average taxpayer expire in 2025. The corporate tax cuts are permanent.
The hypocrisy is blatant. But, since Ronald Reagan, hypocrisy has never seemed to bother Republicans when it comes to facilitating greed.
Unfortunately, hypocrisy is only a minor transgression these days. Now they are lying about the election results, falsely undermining our faith in the integrity of the elections, tolerating violence against fellow parliamentarians, and tolerating efforts to hang the vice president. They have no political agenda beyond the agitation of grievances – and artificial mechanisms to restrict voter turnout or blatantly hijack elections. This is the horrible “transformation” that we should really be worried about.
