It is now April 2021 — thirteen months into “two weeks to flatten the curve.” Since March of last year, Americans and the world alike have watched from the sidelines as power hungry politicians have ushered in draconian lockdowns, shutdowns, police state measures, and brought the economy to its knees. While governments around the planet used their central banks to devalue their currencies by printing money to fund their tyranny, the US led the way down this road fiscal horror.
Here we are, over a year later and thousands of businesses have closed down forever, many states continuing to refuse to reopen schools, tyrannical policies still implemented from coast to coast and we’ve added over $6 TRILLION to the national debt in the name of COVID-19 “relief.”
To put this number into context, the COVID spending over the last year is at least eight times larger than the price tag of President Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s “New Deal.”
Government spending has reached historical levels and the already-unsustainable nature of such irresponsible fiscal policy has been fast tracked to complete meltdown. So, last month, the feds announced they are coming after more of your paycheck.
Someone has to pay the piper for the $6 trillion, right? Also, where, exactly, did all that money go? It certainly did not go out to Americans who needed it most.
For the same $6 trillion in expenditure, the government could have given every federal taxpayer a $41,870 check. Or, to think about it a bit differently, it could have written every American roughly an $18,181 check.
Or, as Congressman Thomas Massie put it, it could have put solar rooftops on every household in America and “the United States could be running on solar panels… for the rest of our lifetimes.”
