Democrats Socialist Takeover Bill

LFC Comments: Thanks to our Painesville Lobbyist Jim for sending us this article. Sadly, there are far too many Americans that do not want freedom. They are quite satisfied having the government bureaucrats tell them how to live their lives. They want to believe the comforting lies, rather than the unpleasant truths. They will surrender their freedoms for their safety and security. Unfortunately, in time, they will have neither.

Here is what is in the Democrats Socialist Takeover Bill 

If you read nothing else in this listing, be certain to read #18 as that will have by far, the biggest impact on America as a Nation!!!

Rep. Jim Banks (R-IN), the chairman of the Republican Study Committee (RSC), released an exhaustive list of some of the most radical aspects of the Democrats’ “socialist takeover bill.” The RSC noted the bill would:
https://banks.house.gov/uploadedfiles/final_reconciliation_.pdf 

1.  Perpetuates labor shortage.  Continues welfare benefits without work requirements for able-bodied adults without dependents at a time where there are 10.1 million job openings—more openings than there are people looking for work. 

2.  Commissions a climate police.  Democrats stuffed $8 billion into the bill to commission a cabal of federally funded climate police called the Civilian Climate Corps (CCC) who will conduct progressive activism on taxpayers’ dime.
*pages 8, 21, and 926 of:
https://docs.house.gov/billsthisweek/20210927/BILLS-117hr5376rh.pdf#page=926 

3.  Pushes Green New Deal in our public schools.  Requires funding for school construction be used largely on enrollment diversity and Green New Deal agenda items.
*page 55 of: 
https://docs.house.gov/meetings/BU/BU00/20210925/114090/BILLS-117pih-BuildBackBetterAct.pdf#page=55 

4.  Pushes Green New Deal in our universities.  Democrats include a $10 billion “environmental justice” higher education slush fund to indoctrinate college students and advance Green New Deal policies.
*page 1 and 935 of:
https://docs.house.gov/billsthisweek/20210927/BILLS-117hr5376rh.pdf#page=1935 

5.  Forces faith-based child care providers out.  The bill blocks the ability of many faith-based providers from participating in the childcare system and will lead to many of their closures.
*page 280 of:
https://docs.house.gov/meetings/BU/BU00/20210925/114090/BILLS-117pih-BuildBackBetterAct.pdf#page=280 

6.  Hurts small and in-home daycares.  Requires pre-K staff to have a college degree. 
*page 303 of:
https://docs.house.gov/meetings/BU/BU00/20210925/114090/BILLS-117pih-BuildBackBetterAct.pdf#page=303 

7.  Includes new incentives for illegal immigration.  Illegal immigrants will be eligible to take advantage of Democrats’ new ‘free’ college entitlement . *page 92 of:
https://docs.house.gov/meetings/BU/BU00/20210925/114090/BILLS-117pih-BuildBackBetterAct.pdf#page=92

. . . as well as be eligible for additional student aid . . .
*page 92 of:
https://docs.house.gov/meetings/BU/BU00/20210925/114090/BILLS-117pih-BuildBackBetterAct.pdf#page=92

. . . and the enhanced child tax credit 
*pages 1 and 1946 of:
https://docs.house.gov/billsthisweek/20210927/BILLS-117hr5376rh.pdf#page=1946 

8.  Includes legislative hull for Biden’s vaccine mandate.  Increases OSHA penalties on businesses that fail to implement the mandate up to $700,000 per violation and includes $2.6 billion in funding for the Department of Labor to increase enforcement of these penalties.
*page 158 of: https://docs.house.gov/meetings/BU/BU00/20210925/114090/BILLS-117pih-BuildBackBetterAct.pdf#page=168 

9.  Gives unions near-total control.  The bill includes insane prohibitions that would bind employers’ hands in union disputes and dangerously tilt the balance of power, subjecting employers to penalties that exempt union bosses and officials… among other things this bill would prevent employers from permanently replacing striking workers.
 *page 175 of:
https://docs.house.gov/meetings/BU/BU00/20210925/114090/BILLS-117pih-BuildBackBetterAct.pdf#page=175 

It coerces businesses to meet union boss demands by increasing Fair Labor Standards Act penalties by an astronomical 900%.  
*page 168 of:
https://docs.house.gov/meetings/BU/BU00/20210925/114090/BILLS-117pih-BuildBackBetterAct.pdf#page=168 

10.  Makes unions bigger and more powerful.  The bill would subsidize union dues that would only serve to strengthen the influence of union bosses and not American workers.
*page 2323 of:
https://docs.house.gov/billsthisweek/20210927/BILLS-117hr5376rh.pdf#page=2323 

11.  Pushes Democrats’ wasteful and confusing school lunch agenda.  $643 million for, among other things, “procuring…culturally appropriate foods”.
*page 333 of:
https://docs.house.gov/meetings/BU/BU00/20210925/114090/BILLS-117pih-BuildBackBetterAct.pdf#page=333 

12.  Furthers radical abortion agenda.  Does not include the Hyde amendment and would mandate taxpayers pay for abortions.
*page 198 of:
https://docs.house.gov/meetings/BU/BU00/20210925/114090/BILLS-117pih-BuildBackBetterAct.pdf#page=198
*page 336 of:
https://docs.house.gov/meetings/BU/BU00/20210925/114090/BILLS-117pih-BuildBackBetterAct.pdf#page=336 

13.  Drives up costs on Americans’ utility bills.  Issues a punitive methane tax and includes a tax on natural gas up to $1,500 per ton that could cost the American economy up to $9.1 billion and cost 90,000 Americans their jobs. 

14.  Includes dangerous & deadly green energy mandate.  Effectively forces Americans to get 40% of their energy from wind, solar and other unreliable forms of energy within 8 years.   Reliance on these energy sources has proven deadly. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2021_Texas_power_crisis 

15.  Includes kickbacks for the Left’s green energy special interest network.  $5 billion for “environmental and climate justice block grants” and another $100 billion in green energy special interest subsidies, loans and other carve outs.
* page 377 of:
https://docs.house.gov/billsthisweek/20210927/BILLS-117hr5376rh.pdf#page=377 

16.  Gives wealthy Americans tax credits.  $222 billion in “green energy” tax credits will be given to those who can afford expensive electric vehicles and other “green” innovative products.
*page 1832 of:
https://docs.house.gov/billsthisweek/20210927/BILLS-117hr5376rh.pdf#page=1832 

17.  Furthers Democrats’ social justice agenda.  Includes “equity” initiatives throughout the bill and, in one instance, Democrats inserted “equity” language into a title which should have been focusing on the maintenance of the United States’ cyber security efforts.
*page 897 of:
https://docs.house.gov/meetings/BU/BU00/20210925/114090/BILLS-117pih-BuildBackBetterAct.pdf#page=897 

18.  Grants amnesty for millions of illegal immigrants.  House Democrats have included in their reconciliation bill a plan to grant amnesty to around 8 million illegal immigrants at a cost of around $100 billion over ten years that would largely be spent on welfare and other entitlements.  Trillions more would be spent long term on their Social Security and Medicare.
*page 901 of:
https://docs.house.gov/billsthisweek/20210927/BILLS-117hr5376rh.pdf#page=901 

19.  Opens border even wider.  The bill would waive many grounds for immigration inadmissibility, including infection or lack of vaccination status during a Pandemic, failure to attend removal proceedings in previous immigration cases, and the previous renouncement of American citizenship. DHS may also waive  previous convictions for human trafficking, narcotics violations, and illegal voting.
*page 903 of:
https://docs.house.gov/meetings/BU/BU00/20210925/114090/BILLS-117pih-BuildBackBetterAct.pdf#page=903 

20.  Increases visa limit.  At least 226,000 family-preference visas would be administered each year.
*page 905 of:
https://docs.house.gov/meetings/BU/BU00/20210925/114090/BILLS-117pih-BuildBackBetterAct.pdf#page=905 

21.  Grants fast-tracked green cards for those seeking middle-class careers in America.  Language included in the bill exempts certain aliens from the annual green card statutory limits and has been described as a “hidden pipeline” for U.S. employers to flood more cheap foreign graduates into millions of middle-class careers needed by American graduates:

*page 910 of:
https://docs.house.gov/billsthisweek/20210927/BILLS-117hr5376rh.pdf#page=910 

22.  Includes pork for Nancy Pelosi.  $200 million is earmarked for the Presidio Trust in Speaker Pelosi’s congressional district. 
*page 933 of:
https://docs.house.gov/billsthisweek/20210927/BILLS-117hr5376rh.pdf#page=933 

23.  Increases energy dependence on OPEC, Russia and China.  The bill prohibits several mineral and energy withdrawals.  
*page 979 of:
https://docs.house.gov/billsthisweek/20210927/BILLS-117hr5376rh.pdf#page=979

It overturns provisions included in the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act that authorized energy production in the Arctic that will result in 130,000 Americans losing their jobs and $440 billion in lost federal revenue.
*page 983 of:
https://docs.house.gov/billsthisweek/20210927/BILLS-117hr5376rh.pdf#page=983

. . . and the mineral withdrawals it prohibits would, ironically, include minerals necessary for renewable energy sources.
*page 934. 940, and 943 of:
https://docs.house.gov/billsthisweek/20210927/BILLS-117hr5376rh.pdf#page=934 

24.  Exacerbates the chip shortage.  The bill would mandate the conversion of the entire federal vehicle fleet from internal combustion engines to electric engines at a time when there is a global microchip shortage and crippled supply chains.
*page 1043 of:
https://docs.house.gov/meetings/BU/BU00/20210925/114090/BILLS-117pih-BuildBackBetterAct.pdf#page=1043 

25.  Democrats’ feckless China bill is included.  Concepts from the insanely weak Endless Frontier Act included, including $11 billion in research funding that will likely result in American intellectual property going to China.
*page 1080 of:
https://docs.house.gov/billsthisweek/20210927/BILLS-117hr5376rh.pdf#page=1080 

26.  Chases green energy pipe dreams.  $264 million to the EPA to conduct research with left-wing environmental justice groups on how to transition away from fossil fuels.
*page 1063 of:
https://docs.house.gov/billsthisweek/20210927/BILLS-117hr5376rh.pdf#page=1063 

27.  Fixes “racist” roads and bridges.  Adds a nearly $4 billion slush fund that would help left-wing grassroots organizations that, among other things, want to tear down and rebuild or otherwise alter infrastructure deemed “racist”. *page 1183 of:
https://docs.house.gov/billsthisweek/20210927/BILLS-117hr5376rh.pdf#page=1183 

28.  Punishes red states for failing to adopt Green New Deal provisions.  Mandates “consequences” for conservative states that don’t meet the radical Left’s “green” climate standards while at the same time adding nearly $4 billion for “Community Climate Incentive Grants” for cooperating states.
*page 1179 of:
https://docs.house.gov/billsthisweek/20210927/BILLS-117hr5376rh.pdf#page=1179 

29.  Includes new massive, bankrupting entitlement.  The new paid leave entitlement would mandate workers get 12 weeks of paid leave and would cost $500 billion over ten years according to the CBO.
*page 1245 of:
https://docs.house.gov/billsthisweek/20210927/BILLS-117hr5376rh.pdf#page=1245

It would apply to those making up to half a million dollars a year.
*page 1254 of:
https://docs.house.gov/billsthisweek/20210927/BILLS-117hr5376rh.pdf#page=1254 

30.  Advances a totalitarian and paternalistic view of the federal government.  Includes grants for organizations to treat individuals suffering from “loneliness” and “social isolation.” 

31.  Further detaches individuals from employment and more reliant on government handouts.  The bill spends $835 billion on welfare through manipulating the tax code [not including the expansions of Obamacare subsidies] 
*page 1943 of:
https://docs.house.gov/billsthisweek/20210927/BILLS-117hr5376rh.pdf#page=1943 

32.  Tax benefits for the top 1%.  The bill will possibly lift the SALT deduction cap meaning many of the top 1% wealthiest Americans would pay less in taxes. 

33.  Tax credit for wealthy donors who give to woke universities.  The bill creates a new tax credit program that gives tax credits worth 40% of cash contribution that are made to university research programs.
*page 2094 of:
https://docs.house.gov/billsthisweek/20210927/BILLS-117hr5376rh.pdf#page=2094 

34.  Expands worst parts of Obamacare.  Obamacare’s job-killing employer mandate will become more severe by adjusting the definition of “affordable coverage” to mean coverage that costs no more than 8.5 percent of income rather than current law’s 9.5 percent of income.
*page 2041 of:
https://docs.house.gov/billsthisweek/20210927/BILLS-117hr5376rh.pdf#page=2041 

35.  Increases taxes on Americans at every income level.  $2 trillion in tax hikes will fall on those making under $400,000 per year, contrary to what the White House says. Individuals at all income levels will be affected.
https://gop-waysandmeans.house.gov/alert-congressional-scorekeeper-dem-tax-hikes-hit-middle-class-earners-between-40k-and-400k/ 

36.  Lowers wages for working families.  The corporate tax rate will increase by 5.5%, meaning American companies will face one of the highest tax burdens in the world. According to analysis two-thirds of this tax hike will fall on lower- and middle-income taxpayers.
https://gop-waysandmeans.house.gov/analysis-biden-tax-hikes-hit-middle-class/ 

37.  Penalizes marriage.  The bill would permanently double the EITC’s marriage penalty on childless worker benefits. 
*page 2036 of:
https://docs.house.gov/billsthisweek/20210927/BILLS-117hr5376rh.pdf#page=2036 

38.  Imposes crushing taxes on small business.  Guts the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act small business deductions that reduced pass-through entity taxes to keep them comparable to taxes imposed on corporations.
*page 2235 of:
https://docs.house.gov/billsthisweek/20210927/BILLS-117hr5376rh.pdf#page=2235

. . . as well as hammer small businesses that file as individual tax earners with the 39.6% rate and Obamacare’s 3.8% tax on net investment income.
*page 2221 of:
https://docs.house.gov/billsthisweek/20210927/BILLS-117hr5376rh.pdf#page=2221 

39.  Crushes family businesses and farms.  The bill would impose a 25% capital gains rate . . .
*page 2226 of:
https://docs.house.gov/billsthisweek/20210927/BILLS-117hr5376rh.pdf#page=2226

. . . and makes alterations to the Death Tax including cutting the Death Tax exemption in half.
*page 2240 of:
https://docs.house.gov/billsthisweek/20210927/BILLS-117hr5376rh.pdf#page=2240 

40.  Violates Americans’ financial privacy.  $80 billion slush fund to hire an 87,000-IRS-agent army to carry out the Biden administration’s plan to review every account above a $600 balance or with more than $600 of transactions in a year. 
*page 2283 of:
https://docs.house.gov/billsthisweek/20210927/BILLS-117hr5376rh.pdf#page=2283 

41.  Increases out of pocket costs for those who rely on prescription drugs.  The bill repeals the Trump-era Rebate Rule which passes through rebates directly to consumers at the point of sale.
*page 2465 of:
https://docs.house.gov/billsthisweek/20210927/BILLS-117hr5376rh.pdf#page=2465 

42.  Imports policies from countries with socialized medicine.  The bill includes healthcare policies imported from systems in Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Japan and the United Kingdom—all countries that have government-run healthcare systems.
 *Page 2349 of:
https://docs.house.gov/billsthisweek/20210927/BILLS-117hr5376rh.pdf#page=2349 

What’s in the $3.5 trillion reconciliation bill?  Democrats are continuing to negotiate what will be in the final draft of the legislation. Each of these 42 bullets is enough to vote against the bill.  It’s mind-blowingly corrupt. 

We need to loudly oppose it. Democrats are scattered.  The Biden agenda is in question. It’s the perfect opportunity to build public sentiment against this bill.

The American people need us to be the vanguard against the Left’s radical plans.  It’s not an understatement to say this bill, if passed, will fundamentally change our country forever—Americans will wake up in a few years and wonder what happened to their freedom.  We can’t let that happen.
