A Rasmussen poll suggests that a majority of Americans oppose the socialism in the policies of the Biden-Harris administration.
That’s encouraging, but I have some concerns about the policies anyway, given that they’re being jammed through without regard for the views of the government’s employers.
The socialism aspect of the Biden-Harris and Progressive-Democratic Party policies is less a matter of the raw spending and usurious taxes in them much more a matter of the strings attached to the spending and of who gets (punitively) taxed.
The strings attached would give the Federal government more control over the States and over what businesses are allowed to produce and the prices they charge. The proposed tax structure would give the Federal government more indirect control by “encouraging” businesses to comport themselves IAW Government wishes.
That control is the essence of socialism, whether the control is through outright ownership or through controlling production permissions.
The spendthriftiness should be enough by itself to keep the bill from being passed.
The tax distortions should be enough by itself to keep the bill from being passed.
The increased Government control should be enough by itself to keep the bill from being passed.
Unfortunately, dangerously, each of the three individually (as well as together) are tightly aligned with Progressive-Democratic Party goals of spending to buy votes, taxing the Evil Rich to virtue-signal for votes, and to outright accrete power to Party.
