Biden’s Budget Request is the Highest in History! by The Elephant's Child

President Biden’s budget request will reach the highest level in history this year, surpassing the previous record from World War II, reports National Review where they have a rather startling diagram illustrating his budget request. I know a fair amount about World War II, and it accomplished remarkable things like defeating the Nazis, and the Japanese efforts to take over the world. Certainly seemed worthwhile at the time and in retrospect.

Joe Biden’s budget sees $69.2 trillion worth of spending over the next decade, which is $8 trillion more that the $61.2 trillion in spending the CBO was projecting in February, a few weeks after he took office. It takes a lot of spending, I guess, to undo everything that President Trump accomplished. And President Trump did have some very major accomplishments. Though Mr. Biden does not seem to understand that.

The border states are having to spend a lot to try to catch and deport all the illegal aliens that Biden has invited in, now that he has tried to eliminate the border wall. But that is state budgets, not federal. Of course costs are up dramatically for the Border Patrol, and ICE, and for all the drug overdoses and deaths caused by the Mexican drug cartels. A good many of the illegal immigrants are not just poor people looking for work and a better life, but hardened criminals looking to make big money.

Big Tech likes having cheap labor to do their scut work, so they’re not going to object to the illegals. And Congress was, I suppose, just misguided when they limited immigration to the U.S. to just one million a year. Though why anyone would think that inviting the population of Central America to come on in for free, is a good idea is beyond me. I’m afraid I don’t regard the current occupant of the Oval Office as competent, and there are already signs of inflation kicking in, and I’m afraid it’s going to be bad. Very bad.
