Sadly, Nancy Pelosi was finally able to force the Democrats in Congress to vote for Mr. Biden’s massively reckless $4.9 trillion socialist spending plan. All but one brave Democrat marched in lockstep with Pelosi by voting in favor of this piece of trash that I like to refer to as the Build Back Worse Act.

Even if you include Biden’s plan to give the IRS $80 billion to hire thousands of new agents, CBO still says his plan adds $160 billion to the debt. Economists across the political spectrum say that the bill will cause prices to spike even more. The Penn-Wharton Budget Model found it would explode the national
