Nestled within the pages of the bill is a particularly odious appropriation. According to Fox News, Republican Congressman Dan Bishop of North Carolina found $575 million to be allocated to “reproductive health.” But it is far more ominous than it sounds. Bishop tweeted:
On a more sinister note, here’s at least $575 million for ‘family planning’ in areas where population growth ‘threatens biodiversity.’ Malthusianism is a disturbing, anti-human ideology that should have ZERO place in any federal program.

For, Mitch McConnell, the Republican leader in the Senate to override the upcoming Republican majority and literally steal our responsibility in the House to appropriate spending for nearly half of our upcoming majority, just to help Biden & his retiring Senator friends,

LYNDON BAINES JOHNSON AND OUR CULTURE OF CORRUPTION:
What separates Johnson’s story from other tales of political venality is the vast impact of his legacy. The average US citizen’s trust in government peaked at 77% during Johnson’s time as President and has drifted lower ever since, sitting at just 20% today. He also uncorked an orgy of government spending, both in support of the war in Vietnam and in pursuit of his ambitious domestic agenda. Bigger government means bigger opportunities for grift, and Washington DC’s insatiable and bipartisan appetite for both was irreversibly accelerated by Johnson. Measured as a percentage of gross domestic product, US Federal Government spending has nearly doubled since the 1960s.
Normalization of behavior like Johnson’s has led to a continuing debasement of US politics to the point where scandals that would have previously ended careers are now routinely blown off as standard operating procedure. Today, members of Congress openly and flagrantly trade stocks based on inside information, having gone so far as to carve out an exception that legalizes an activity that is still a crime for the rest of us. Government regulators routinely end up as well-compensated employees of the very companies they are meant to oversee, creating giant and obvious conflicts of interest in the process, and selective use of the powers of government against political opponents is now commonplace. An entire cottage industry of rent-seeking enablers – lobbyists, attorneys, and consultants – dot the interface between the private and public sectors, making it impossible for entrepreneurs to thrive without paying a healthy vig to this state-sponsored mafia.
BECAUSE TRUMP SCARED THEM: Why Did the FBI Want Joe Biden to Become President?
Let’s face it, the deep state has had a pretty sweet deal going. Trump was poking around in everything. This is… oh, yeah, China had a lot of these. This is a eunuch’s revolution, trying to prevent the legitimate ruler from destroying their graft and corruption. And looking at the idiots in this administration “eunuchs” is a pretty good term for them. Intellectual and moral eunuchs if not physical.
Group of Senate Republicans planning to fully fund virtually every Biden program for NINE MONTHS — no matter how awful, destructive, corrupt. Call your Senators and let them know what you think: 202-224-3121.

Net worth before running for President:
Trump- $4.5 billion
Obama’s – $3 million
Clinton’s – $480,000
Trump- $3.2 billion
Obama’s – $70 million
Clinton’s – $120 million
Yet the media wants you to care about Trump’s tax returns?!

Wow! What fighters, the GOP. Democrats give the IRS an additional $8 billion per year over ten years and the GOP trims $275 million. What courage! (sarcasm intended) t.co/XKSm7dLiVS
