If you are someone you know still believes that Democrats are ‘the party of the working class,’ you really need to disabuse yourself of that notion.
Because it’s complete BS.
Today’s Democrat Party is for, of, and by the wealthy, period.
Corporate CEOs, Wall Street investors, billionaire hedge fund managers, and the tech giants in Silicon Valley are all uber-wealthy and all are Democrat constituents.
In fact, the Republican Party, especially Donald Trump’s Republican Party, is the true party of America’s working class, and we can prove it.
Not only did Trump do more to help lift up working-class Americans with tax cuts and by creating the best economy in decades, but his GOP has since been working to oppose the worst spending proposals of the Biden regime, all of which will raise costs on average Americans.
(But some Senate Republicans are faltering Americans, siding with Democrats to create one of the largest wealth transfers in the history of our country.)
It’s a brand-new tax that will hit workers the hardest, and it’s hidden in the ‘infrastructure’ bill on the verge of passage in the Senate.
The Washington Times has more:
The White House's $1.2 trillion infrastructure package includes a pilot program for a national mile-driven tax, contradicting President Biden's previous dismissal of the policy.
Tucked within the 2,702-page infrastructure bill is obscure language requiring the Department of Transportation to test the feasibility of taxing drivers for the number of miles they travel.
The tax would be broad enough to target any 'passenger motor vehicles,' including light and medium-to-heavy duty trucks.'
The bill also requires Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen and Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg (or their successors) to report to Congress about the findings of the program within three years of its creation.
Those findings, the bill's authors say, can then be used by federal lawmakers to assess whether such a tax should be implemented to fund improvements on roads and highways.
'The objectives of the pilot program are to test the design, acceptance, implementation, and financial sustainability of a national motor vehicle per-mile user fee, to address the need for additional revenue for surface transportation infrastructure and a national motor vehicle per-mile user fee,' the bill reads.
Let’s not kid ourselves: If Democrats remain in power, of course this massive new tax is coming.
Democrats have been trying to raise the cost of driving for years because they want fewer Americans on the road.
It’s not about ‘climate change,’ though that is the excuse.
It’s about control. Always.
That said, stop letting Democrats lie to you that they are the party of working-class Americans. They couldn’t care less about us, as their policies continually make crystal clear.
Biden's inflation is GETTING WORSE by the month...
Around the world, supply chains continue to be disrupted. Delays are now commonplace. And they're going to get worse.
There IS a financial reset coming - that's just true. All the signs indicate as much.
