Assessment: Joe Biden’s ‘build back better plan has a hidden radical pro-LGBTQI agenda wrapped inside 3000 pages of economic destruction
LifeSite News: Religious freedom and economic stability in Joe Biden’s America could take a major hit in the coming months.
Back from their summer recesses, Democrats in Congress are moving quickly to advance Biden’s radical, multi-trillion-dollar “Build Back Better” spending package. House committees have already finished drafting proposals for a record-breaking $3.5 trillion “human infrastructure” budget reconciliation bill strongly backed by the White House.
“And I heard a voice in the midst of the four living creatures saying, “A quart of wheat for a denarius, and three quarts of barley for a denarius; and do not harm the oil and the wine.” Rev. 6:6
The bill, which watchdogs warn actually costs closer to $5 trillion, will likely come just before the House is scheduled to take up the Senate’s $1 trillion “bipartisan” infrastructure bill later this month, depending on infighting between far-left House progressives and “moderate” Democrats.
Taken together, the two bills, which rival the $4 trillion, in today’s money, that the U.S. spent fighting the entire Second World War, threaten to impose an extreme, pro-abortion, pro-LGBT agenda and a raft of socialistic economic policies to all but remake America as we know it.
