Congress Enacts $1.2 Trillion “Infrastructure” Bill With Radical Provisions


Assessment: At more than 2,700 pages long, H.R. 3684 would spend $1.2 trillion. However, only nine percent of of that would actually go toward infrastructure, with the remainder going toward leftist programs and the pet projects of lawmakers …

Specifically, H.R. 3684 includes the following radical provisions:

  • unconstitutionally mandates that states create carbon reduction programs, with the federal government choosing which plans to accept or reject;
  • creates a pilot program for a mileage tax, which tracks how many miles individuals drive, something that would infringe on Americans’ privacy, penalize drivers in low-density areas, and make driving too costly for some Americans;
  • requires car companies to equip all vehicles with “advanced alcohol monitoring systems“;
  • allows the federal government to bypass “Buy American” rules, promoting outsourcing to countries such as Communist China;
  • enables mass migration by funding border crossings and migrant “welcome centers” while including $0 for border wall construction;
  • defines “gender identity” as a protected class and uses the word “equity” 64 times;
  • enacts racial quotas for broadband spending;
  • rewards states that support and facilitate illegal migration to the United States, also for broadband spending;
  • ends Amtrak’s policies/goals of creating a profit and seeking to minimize costs;
  • includes multiple radical climate-change provisions, including over $50 billion to protect against “climate change” and $21 billion for “environmental remediation.” Additionally, H.R. 3684 will “modernize” the power grid to accommodate “green” energy; and
  • among other provisions, H.R. 3684 includes $39 billion for public transportation, $15 billion altogether for electric transportation, $65 billion for broadband, a $30 billion cryptocurrency tax.

One of the strongest voices speaking out against H.R. 3684 was former President Donald Trump. Stating it was “Very sad that the RINOs in the House and Senate gave Biden and Democrats a victory on the ‘Non-Infrastructure’ Bill,” Trump noted that Democrats had already set their eyes upon a second “infrastructure” bill.
