Socialist Spending Bill Fails To Move Forward
Thank you for taking the time to send emails.
Socialism is hostile toward a wide range of liberties that Americans have cherished for hundreds of years. Socialism is very oppressive toward religious liberties especially towards Christians and Jews.
“This is the biggest step toward socialism in my lifetime.” U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi declined to take a vote on the $3.5 trillion dollar socialist spending bill by her September 30, 2021 deadline after approximately two dozen members of the house indicated that they would not vote for it. Additionally, Senators Joe Manchin (D-West Virginia) and Kyrsten Sinema (D- Arizona) voiced their opposition to the fiscally irresponsible legislation. Additionally, it appears that some other Democrat senators also indicated that they would not vote for the bill.
Since the overwhelming majority of Republicans are opposed to the $3.5 trillion dollar socialist spending bill Florida Family Association focused on encouraging 7 moderate Democrats in the Senate and 19 moderate Democrats in the House to oppose the legislation. Florida Family Association launched several email campaigns that provided prepared emails for subscribers to send to these moderate Democrats. These prepared emails were produced in a format that sent them through each subscriber’s own email client. This embedded email format was chosen in order insure their delivery. Florida Family Association estimates that each official received over 15,000 emails from Florida Family Association subscribers. Additionally and thankfully, there were conservative news media and talk shows that expressed grave concern regarding this radical legislation.
Why is Florida Family Association concerned about the $3.5 trillion dollar spending bill? This legislation moves America ever closer to oppressive socialism. U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham described the $3.5 trillion dollar spending bill as “This is the biggest step toward socialism in my lifetime.” Socialism is hostile toward a wide range of liberties that Americans have cherished for hundreds of years. Socialism is very oppressive toward religious liberties especially towards Christians and Jews.
High inflation and gas prices caused by recent excessive congressional spending are hurting millions of American families and threatening our economy. Fox News Poll reports: “83% worry about inflation, majority says benefits hurting economy. Inflation tops the list of economic concerns for voters– ahead of taxes, unemployment, the federal deficit, and interest rates.” The increasing gasoline prices and energy costs will likely go even higher with the left’s obsession with the New Green Deal which is part of the $3.5 trillion reconciliation bill.
It is fiscally irresponsible for congress to throw more money on the inflation fire that will break the budgets of more American families and burden them with entitlement programs that will endure forever. Additionally, the $3.5 trillion plan will require much more money from the private sector to pay for more entitlement programs thus pushing America even closer to socialism while hurting our robust economy. This bill will increase energy costs and our dependence on foreign oil thereby weakening national security.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi extended the deadline for voting on this irresponsible socialist legislation to October 30, 2021. The $3.5 trillion amount will likely be reduced in order to garner votes. However, the bill’s passage becomes much less probable following this failure and as the calendar nears the 2022 elections when voters will be more likely to hold these officials accountable. Florida Family Association is prepared to launch more email campaigns if necessary.
