It's Baaack! Radical BBB Bill Returns...

Jan 4, 2022

“Here we go again,” one article wrote yesterday about the “Build Back Better Act” (BBB). While you were celebrating Christmas, the White House used this holiday to push Senate Democrats to resurrect this devastating bill.

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) held a virtual caucus meeting to tell Senate Democrats he will push a vote on BBB this month.

This is the most harmful spending bill on Capitol Hill! And there is only a razor-thin margin blocking it.

We need your help to stop this bill in the Senate. It will unleash a host of radical warriors to attack our values and destroy our nation from the inside. Click here or the button below to send your urgent faxes demanding our senators immediately stop this bill! —Mat

Yesterday afternoon, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) even threatened to destroy the Senate’s filibuster, which requires 60 votes to move a bill forward. If he is successful, it would open a floodgate to pass Democrats’ bills like the BBB. Schumer gave Republicans two weeks to either pass his legislative demands or he will force a vote by January 17 to destroy the filibuster.

If this happens, the BBB will be one of many destructive bills.

Our senators are under incredible pressure, and they need to hear from you. It is critical to act NOW! Together we can stop this anti-religion, anti-freedom, socialist push in our nation.

The BBB is a massive 2,468-page bill, which pushes a shocking radicalized socialist agenda! The BBB bill will do all the following and so much more:

  • Eliminate the Hyde Amendment—which will make your tax dollars directly pay for elective abortions.
  • Pay for socialized medicine for certain Americans.
  • Authorize government oversight of every financial account that has 10,000 dollars in transactions over a year, which will trigger the IRS to look at every 600-dollar transaction.
  • Give the IRS 78,935,000,000 dollars (almost 80 billion) to increase audits and hire 87,000 new enforcement officers to track nearly all your financial activities.
  • Pay an additional 150 million to IRS lawyers to drag people to court.
  • Create a radicalized, militarized “corps” for climate change, fully funded by taxpayers for housing, food, salaries, travel, etc.
  • Block faith-based child care organizations from receiving funding.
  • Establish taxpayer-funded babysitting and tuition from preschool up to the sixth semester in college.
  • Push critical race theory and financially reward schools that make race-based acceptance and hiring decisions.
  • Devastate black communities by kicking independent contractors and temporary workers out of their jobs, forcing child care workers to need a college education and taking over housing in local communities.
  • Offer state-issued identification—essentially amnesty and citizenship—to illegal immigrants.
  • Pay child support to illegal immigrants, motivating even more border crossings.
  • Offer welfare without any work, or attempt to work, requirements.
  • Take more inheritance from children and limit them to receive 50% less from their parents’ property.
  • Give unions nearly total control and subject owners and employers to penalties while exempting union bosses and officials.
  • And much, much more.

It is critically important to block this bill. Our senators must hear from you. Send your urgent fax to Congress to fight this today.

The nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office (CBO) came out with a more accurate price tag for this bill of 5 trillion dollars over the course of 10 years.

To reach 5 trillion dollars, you would have to stack 100-dollar bills about 3,155 miles into space, which is further than Orlando to Seattle! What do Democrats plan to buy with that money?

In a few short paragraphs, the BBB creates a new plan that will devastate America through a “Climate Corps” initiative. The group pushing this program is clear about what they want this bill to accomplish. The “Sunrise Movement” admitted they want this money to be used on their most pressing goals:

Our country is facing so many crises, historic joblessness and economic inequality, gun violence, frequent murders of Black and brown people by the police, state repression of protestors and a climate crisis that looms over it all … [while] working a job without a living wage, benefits, or the right to join a union.”

BBB will use our tax dollars to encourage violent riots, defund law enforcement, strip guns from law-abiding citizens, reward racial divisions and usher in a “Green New Deal” in which the government is dictating the minutia like how many miles you can drive under the guise of “climate change.”

Capitol Hill Democrats are pushing this bill hard as a part of the budget process, which will only require 51 votes.

Even before this bill is passed, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and other Democrats on Capitol Hill are pushing to expand government funding of the “Climate Corps” by a hundredfold. They are demanding that the government hire 1.5 million people to fill these “Green New Deal” positions! That’s 30,000 people in EVERY STATE to push AOC’s radical socialist agenda!

Can you imagine what damage could be caused if the federal government fought against law enforcement protecting people and property—what this bill’s supporters call “repression of protestors”?

This BBB is a clear blueprint to launch socialism in America. There is no time to delay. Send your urgent faxes to Congress to fight this today.

While the BBB must be stopped, it is not the only battle raging against our freedom. Together we can stop this slide to socialism. You can also DOUBLE your gift now through our Challenge Grant.
