Who Pays for the Woke? ~ Congressman Tom McClintock

Washington, DC...During the Trump Administration, Republicans passed one of the biggest tax cuts in American history and the greatest regulatory relief ever. The result was the biggest economic expansion in our lifetimes. Before the lockdown left took a wrecking ball to our economy, Americans were prospering with the lowest unemployment rate in 50 years – the lowest poverty rate in 60 years – and the fastest wage growth in 40 years. For the first time in decades, the income gap was narrowing.




Joe Biden and the Democrats have reversed these policies with reckless abandon. It is no coincidence that real wages for Americans have declined every single month since he took office.

History is crystal clear on this point: No country has ever taxed, spent and borrowed its way to prosperity – but many have done so to their ruin.

Brian Riedl tallied up the total cost of the Democrats’ new spending bills for the New York Post and estimates $8 trillion of new spending over the next ten years – about $60,000 per family. Joe Biden and the Democrats tell us this won’t cost you a penny. It will all be paid by somebody else.

Here is the dirty little secret of government spending: Government cannot put a dollar into the economy that it hasn’t first taken out of the same economy. Every dollar it gives you it must take from you and there are only three ways to do it: current taxes which rob you of your current purchasing power; borrowing, which robs you of your future purchasing power; or printing money, which robs you every time you go shopping by reducing the value you of your earnings, while it silently hollows out your savings and retirement funds.

And don’t fall for their lie that their taxes will only fall on businesses. Businesses don’t pay business taxes. YOU pay business taxes: as a consumer through higher prices; as an employee through lower wages; and as an investor through lower earnings. That’s your retirement fund.

You know they’re coming after working families -- because they want to hire 87,000 new IRS agents. That is every man, woman and child living in Miami Beach, Florida. Or Ogden, Utah. Imagine the entire population of one of those cities unleashed to go after every taxpayer in America!

The Democrats’ so-called “American Families Plan” will require your bank to report every one of your private transactions over $600 to the IRS. Does that sound like they’re going after the Biden family? No, they’re coming after YOUR family. And if you’re typical, you already paid more in taxes last year than you paid for food, clothing, health care and entertainment combined. According to the Democrats, that’s not enough.

What else do you get for your $60,000 of new taxes, inflation and tax-driven price increases?

Amnesty, legal permanent residence and a fast track to citizenship for eight to ten million foreign nationals who illegally entered our country and are demanding to stay. Eight million is the entire population of Wyoming, Alaska, Vermont, South Dakota, North Dakota, Rhode Island, Montana and Maine -- combined. This at a time when real family earnings are declining, crime is increasing, homelessness is rampant, and mounting debt is killing the American dream of a better future for our children.

How are American workers helped by flooding the labor market with low-wage labor?

Of course, the woke ruling class makes out very well. The $60,000 taken from your earnings over the next decade will, for example, pay bonuses of up to $50,000 each for reporters and bloggers across the country who so shamelessly do the Democrats’ bidding. There are lavish handouts to ivy-league universities and the fashionable elite who buy $82,000 Teslas.

There’s even a new Civilian Climate Corps, presumably filled with officious little climate pioneers ever eager to report whose chimney is smoking, who’s watering their lawn on the wrong day and who’s spreading forbidden climate disinformation.

The fine point of it comes down to this: what makes the Democrats think that socialism will work any better here than everywhere else it’s been tried?

I call BS. Republicans "passed the biggest tax cuts in history" for the Uber wealthy and big corporations. They spent the debt ceiling up and now want to lay the blame on Biden. Also, you'll note McConnell's sound bite speech saying the GOP is saving the day with a short term compromise because the Democrats could not, all the while blocking any negotiation efforts until the 11th hour. All theater.

      There was a house in Columbia that had MAGA flags for 4 years. Lock her up signs etc. Plus a tarp over the roof to keep the rain out. 4 years of trump really helped these people. Roof is still a mess, place is still about to fall apart and now its trump 2024.
      I font get where that wonderful economic expansion went. Well I do, it went to corporations and the 1%, but why do the idiots still believe this guy will give them a better life or fix their roof?

Forgive me for noting that Republicans seem to believe that the rich will work harder if we give them more tax breaks and that the poor will work harder if we give them an even lower standard of living.

Tax the super rich who fund the politicians campaigns. If Trump is so rich (still waiting on those tax returns) then he should pay more than his fair share. And I don't believe paying porn stars hush money is a tax deduction.

Trumpian sycophant. The entire Trump era was an embarrassment. Worse administration in history and at this point any politician that touts his success is just playing to his ignorant base. Woke? How about Wake Up.

Like Tom or hate Tom he's right. Those taxes on businesses will come at our expense. Do you really think businesses will just fork over hundreds of millions of dollars to the money hungry government and just shrug their shoulders and take a loss, their shareholders take a loss, watch stock drop and take a loss?
Please say hello to inflation, it's already costing the average family $172 a month more right now then one year ago. Everything has gone up, just filled my truck up yesterday, $4.44 a gallon fro diesel. Wanna bet on $5.00 a gallon next year. Hell I'm betting it wi be closer to $6
What a mistake voting for Biden, I never thought he'd sell out to the far left. CRT being taught, DOJ/ FBI going after parents for speaking against teachers or the school board calling them domestic terrorist. 85,000 IRS agents looking at our banking any transaction over $600? Yet his son can sell his art work for $500,000 and no one can get any details on the buyer and possible favors for a half million dollars that buys our president.
I thought Trump was bad, but this is ridiculous.
What President Biden's has done already is going to put republicans back in power next year when they win both houses, and I'm going to do my part, I'm not voting for these far left ideas, open borders? We'll have another 9/11 in a few years with no borders.

    Mac is just another neo liberal economics grifter.
    Forgotten is how much this tax cut for the wealthy caused trillions in debt.
    All the Republican tax cuts raised the debt, but ole Mac and the Qpubs deny truth, data, facts.
    It's time to rid the country of trickle down economics , since Reagan adopted trickle down the middle class has shrunk. The middle class has been under attack, as the Republicans work to ruin a public school education, reduce ACA (medical care) and a decent living wage, deny the people their vote.
    McClintock is the example of what is seriously wrong in America.

      It really surprises me that for a people that sprouts the word "Freedom" at every opportunity, you are supporting the 1%, giving them tax breaks and then waiting at the kitchen door for scraps. Trickle down theory has failed, conservatives need to realize that. Shrinking middle class is a great data point for that. Time for a new experiment TAX THE RICH.

        You hit the nail on the head.
        Greed of the shareholders is the issue. Today's players in the market expect to make a certain percentage of profit.
        Over the last few years, the market has made people think that profits are a given. Either way, it's the 99% of us that are supporting the 1%.
        You can look at it any way you want. This is Capitalism at its best. Socialism is a word Capitalists use to keep the stupid in line.

    You're not thinking about both sides. Perhaps it might cause inflation. But if it reduces expenses on the other side of the balance sheet by providing service/goods that are costing us individually... it's hard to calculate.

    I've had to replace two tires on my truck because of a massive pot hole on a cony road. Those tires cost about $300 each. What would have been my share of the taxes to simply fill the pot hole? A lot less than $600. So I would have gladly paid for the pothole infrastructure cost.
