Joe Biden rolled out a $2.25-trillion “American Jobs Plan” for infrastructure, and Republicans were quick to identify it as the implementation of climate change policies via the Green New Deal that was proposed by Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Senator Edwin Markey in 2019. While the proposal claims to be an infrastructure bill, only about about $157-billion, or 6% of the total spending, will used for roads, bridges and airports. More money, $174-billion, would be spent on building “500,000 electric vehicle charging stations” and “electrify 20% of school buses and electrify the federal fleet”. The single biggest chunk of the plan, $400-billion will be allocated to ‘caregiving’, such as child care and public health care, even though they are not physical infrastructure. Congressman Steve Scalise said that the bill raises taxes, increases debt, bans right to work laws, kills energy jobs, and mandates Green New Deal provisions. To fund the plan, Biden is proposing a corporate tax-rate of 28%, which will cause more businesses to leave the US and ship jobs overseas. Income tax will increase for individuals and families who make over $400,000. -GEG
