Biden’s latest multitrillion-dollar plan to reward Dem allies — and balloon government


President Joe Biden’s “American Families Plan” is yet another bid to reward Democratic interests with yet more cash and government and quasi-government jobs, further bloating America’s already-massive federal bureaucracy and nanny state. The mammoth $1.8 trillion spending splurge unveiled Wednesday builds on his $2.3 trillion “infrastructure” proposal and the $1.9 trillion “relief” package he already rammed through Congress. The new outlays amount to more than what the entire US government spends in a year and would add to a budget that’s already the largest (as a share of US GDP) since World War II. Who benefits from Biden’s largesse? A huge chunk — more than half a trillion, just in his latest plan — would go to his friends in the education business (read: teachers’ unions): $200 billion to fund universal pre-school for 3- and 4-year-olds, $109 billion for two years of “free” community college, $80 billion in expanded Pell grants, $62 billion to prevent college dropouts, $46 billion for “minority-serving” universities and $9 billion for teacher programs.
