House Speaker Mike Johnson's new Israel Aid bill is a doozy!
While both Republicans and Democrats seem united on sending aid to Israel, Johnson says that money has got to come from somewhere.
We're going to have pays-for in [the bill]. We're not just going to print money and send it overseas.
I understand their priority is to bulk up the IRS. But I think if you put this to the American people and they weigh the two needs, I think they're going to say standing with Israel and protecting the innocent over there is in our national interest and is a more immediate need than IRS agents.
Let's be honest. There a lots of over-bloated agencies that have plenty to spare, but I think if we're going to go down this road, Johnson picked the right one.
Remember when the Democrats passed the "Inflation Reduction Act" that increased inflation and gave the IRS $80 billion to hire 87,000 new IRS agents, including 70,000 armed agents??
Johnson's reallocating some of that domestic tyranny money for foreign aid.
How will the Democrats afford their jack boots now?
Biden isn't going to be happy. The president wanted the Israel aid package to be a joint bill that included $61 billion more for Ukraine (one of the countries he's suspected of having received bribes from while vice president). And he wanted the money to be created from thin air (like we always do).
But Johnson wants a separate bill for Ukraine that requires the White House to track where the money is going and give details on what the end game is in the conflict. There's no word on how he plans to pay for that one.
Hopefully, he'll take it from the EPA and the Education Department.
The Democrats are spinning the bill as a "dangerous precedent."
Democratic Rep. Rosa DeLauro of Connecticut, the ranking member on the House Appropriations Committee, said,
House Republicans are setting a dangerous precedent by suggesting that protecting national security or responding to natural disasters is contingent upon cuts to other programs.
In other words, how dare Republicans draw attention to the dangers of modern monetary theory? What insane person would think you need to make cuts in some areas of your budget to afford emergencies in other areas?
We need to print more money, today!
People could die!
