Dem Rep. Torres: $3.5 Trillion in Spending
‘Is a Modest Investment’

Original Article

Posted By: LoveYourCountry, 10/3/2021 6:58:25 AM

On Saturday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “Yasmin Vossoughian Reports,” Rep. Ritchie Torres (D-NY) argued that the $3.5 trillion price tag for the Build Back Better Act reconciliation package “is a modest investment” for an economy the size of America’s. Torres said, “[T]here’s misconception about the price tag of the Build Back Better Act. The Build Back Better Act, the original draft, it is not 3.5 trillion over the course of a year. It’s over the course of ten years. So, it’s $350 billion. Which, for a $20 trillion economy like ours, is a modest investment. So, I think it’s shortsighted to focus on the price tag.”


I'm going to go out on a limb here: Rep. Torres wasn't a Mathematics major, and I'll bet he struggled with Algebra.

Why is this country, with such a huge successful economy, so far in debt? Could it be because it's managed by 2-bit politicians, instead of trained successfly CEO types?.

We currently have a debt of 26 trillion. Now I ask you where the hell is the money? Our roads should be paved with gold for all the "infrastructure" money that has been spent over the years. Our schools should be graduating every child with honors and our economy should be humming with all the inovations that we are developing to make people's lives better. Where is all this money? My guess is in the pockets of these lying politicians who do nothing but extort more and more money from us to furnish their lavish life styles. Ask youself how a dimwith like Maxine has the life she does. What has she produced for you? Has she built a building? Has she fixed your plumbing? the only screwdriver she has ever weilded is the one that screws the American taxpayer. ENOUGH of this. They call for Trump's taxes? At least he has built things, he has created jobs. These people create nothing but misery and pain. Let's have some forensic audits on their assets and holding and all their off shore bank acccts. And really follow the money.

Do any of these idiots know how much a trillion is? They throw these numbers around like M&M's. It’s 1,000 BILLIONS! That’s 1,000,000,000,000, The Debt is 28 of those. It will never be paid down. Just keep handing out the free stuff in order to get votes. At some point, we are going to have to start over.

Here's an idea: both houses of Congress take a modest 96% to 98% pay cut to help support this mess of a bill. (By the way that's why they call it a bill - someone had to pay the 3.5 billion no matter how modest).

A friend of mine the other night told me that if we paid a dollar every second to pay off the national debt, it would take more than 300,000 years. Now I don't know if that's right, but if it is, the mind set of anyone in D.C. is that the national debt will never be paid off, so why bother to worry about it. They must assume they won't be around when the bill comes due, so it's not their problem.

"Investment" implies some kind of return on the money you are stealing from the taxpayers to give free stuff to parasites. Our only "return" is the privilege of living amongst third world savages who grow fat, dumb and happy and do nothing but demand more, along with respect for their lifestyle, abusive treatment of others outside their cult or skin color.

So, now this is to be used for the next Ten years. Puleeeeze! How about getting bids for the Road and Bridges that need fixing NOW. Then actually USE the money to fix THOSE Roads and Bridges. Every time they want more money from us it's for "Roads and Bridges". But, it's those very SAME Roads and Bridges that need fixing every darn time. NOBODY believes, anymore, that they will ever get fixed. WHERE does the money go? They're not giving any money to the Military, which should be the FIRST place it goes. I think the reason this Bill is having so much trouble getting passed is that the Phones in the Offices of the HOUSE Members are ringing off the Hook with THEIR Voters back home saying DO NOT Vote for that Bill or you are going to lose your job in 2022! Manchin knows that will happen. He would Love to vote yes and help out Nancy, but if he does, he's TOAST!

America abhors socialism/ communism! It never works in any country where it is tried, in pa=t, because it runs out of othe peoples money. Basing such government's income on other people's money it theft any way you look at it. Plus, it is immoral as it reduces most of its citizens into servative with no Rights, no dignity and no hope, while only the tyrannical elites dictate. It kills personal initiative and can only exist by deceit and brute force when there is nothing remaining to steal. Why would America ever be tricked and fall for such tyranny when we have the U.S. Constitution and Bill of Rights which has proved to protect and defend our personal Life, Liberty and Pursuit of Happiness successfully for hundreds of years?! Freedom isn't free but is secured through blood, sweat and tears as history shows and we dare not be deceived by the lies of political thieves now! Treasure freedom in America! -The rest of the world sure does as evidenced by those who want to move and live here.

This jerk knows better. he's not dumb. He's dishonest. The debt stands at 28.8 TRILLION dollars. How many jobs and products will this 3.5 trillion spending package create? My guess it wont create much of anything, making it money wasted. All it will do is cause inflation. All that money flowing in to the US economy, and nothing to show for it.

On top of the 26 -28-30 trillion dollars of debt, don't forget that there is somewhere between 130 to 250 trillion dollars in unfunded liabilities / entitlements. Although admittedly our elite rulers are partially addressing that with their covid bioweapons, primarily targeting older people who are collecting Social Security, pensions, Medicare.

The bill is 2465 pages which would take 49 hours of non-stop reading! None of these clowns has actually read the bill so how do they have the nerve to say it's only a modest investment. BTW, at 3.5 Trillion that is $1,000,000,400 per page. We need to update the late Everett Dirkson's famous statement to A Trillion here and a Trillion there and the next thing you know we are talking about real money. And for toppers, the Congressional Budget office outs the cost of the bill to closer to 5 Trillion. This must be stopped!

“I was raised by a single mother who raised children on minimum wage,” Torres, a member of the New York City Council, said. “I lived in public housing and had to struggle with depression and substance abuse. I never thought life would take me on a journey from the Bronx to Washington, D.C.” After winning a crowded primary this summer, Torres sailed to a resounding victory Tuesday over his Republican opponent in New York’s 15th Congressional District, a Democratic stronghold centered in the Bronx. Torres, 32, will become one of the first Black, openly gay men to serve in the House, along with Mondaire Jones, the winner Tuesday in New York’s 17th District, to the north of Torres’ district. Openly gay Afro-Latino. What can go wrong?

Last time I checked, Representatives are elected for two year terms, Senators for 6 years. Why are we even considering a bill that will lock in massive amounts of spending beyond the terms of office for anyone voting for it? If you want to spend $350 million a year, bring that up for discussion and hold another vote to extend it if you win another term.

Meanwhile, In May 2021, President Joe Biden released a $6.011 trillion federal budget proposal for fiscal year (FY) 2022. The U.S. government estimates it will receive $4.174 trillion in revenue, creating a $1.873 trillion deficit for October 1, 2021, through September 30, 2022. So, they are raising taxes, and rather than use it to eliminate the Federal budget deficit , are siphoning it off for the progressive dream and asserting it costs $0 .... Once again, who you gonna believe, me or your lying eyes?

The latest Golden/TIPP poll shows that nearly two-thirds (63 percent) of Americans believe the Biden administration’s way of withdrawing from Afghanistan was a mistake. Biden’s botched withdrawal ended with the deaths of 13 U.S servicemembers and many wounded, along with hundreds of Americans still trapped in the Taliban-controlled country. The poll asked respondents, “Please indicate the extent to which you agree or disagree with the statement: The way the Biden Administration executed the withdrawal from Afghanistan was a mistake.”

As to the first statement, there are plenty of examples of police officers firing multiple shots at a suspected threat.

The best way to do that: Vaccination and booster shots, he said. "We've just got to concentrate on continuing to get those numbers down and not try to jump ahead by weeks or months and say what we're going to do at a particular time," Fauci said.

Dr. Fauci on Friday was grilled on CNBC about so-called Covid ‘breakthrough’ cases. “Dr. Fauci, you guys have been pushing the vaccine and I understand why – I’m vaccinated, but I also have Covid and it spread through my entire family in the past few weeks,” CNBC host Sara Eisen said from her home office. She continued, “And I just wonder about the public messaging around vaccinations. Three vaccinated people got Covid in my house, two unvaccinated children got it. Are you too casual about the limitations of the vaccine? Because it does feel to me that breakthroughs are happening, they’re happening regularly

With all the different people involved in the current chaos going on in Washington, one name you wouldn’t expect to hear is Hillary Clinton. After all, she’s not a relevant figure outside of her cult fan base. Yet, the two-time failed presidential candidate — who lost the 2016 election and then blamed Russia for four years — decided to weigh in, and I’m pretty sure she’s lost her mind. Trump well and truly broke this woman. [Tweet] Before we get to Hillary, I just want to point out that this staff writer for The Atlantic claims to be genuinely afraid of the fall of our government and “minority rule.”

On Saturday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “Yasmin Vossoughian Reports,” Rep. Ritchie Torres (D-NY) argued that the $3.5 trillion price tag for the Build Back Better Act reconciliation package “is a modest investment” for an economy the size of America’s. Torres said, “[T]here’s misconception about the price tag of the Build Back Better Act. The Build Back Better Act, the original draft, it is not 3.5 trillion over the course of a year. It’s over the course of ten years. So, it’s $350 billion. Which, for a $20 trillion economy like ours, is a modest investment. So, I think it’s shortsighted to focus on the price tag.”

Benedict Cumberbatch is reflecting on playing a closeted cattle rancher who falls in love with a young man in 1920s Montana in his new movie “The Power of the Dog.” The Oscar-nominated actor plays Phil Burbank, a hypermasculine rancher who inspires fear in awe in those around him—a reign of terror that comes from a deeply closeted sexuality. His made-up persona runs into some trouble after his brother (Jesse Plemons) brings home a new wife (Kirsten Dunst) and her queer son (Kodi Smit-McPhee). Phil torments them until he finds himself exposed to the possibility of love.

A black woman has been charged with posing as a member of the Ku Klux Klan and posting notes through neighbors' doors threatening to kill their children.

Despite having the highest vaccination rates in the country, there are constant reminders for most New England states of just how vicious the delta variant of COVID-19 is. Hospitals across the region are seeing full intensive care units and staff shortages are starting to affect care. Public officials are pleading with the unvaccinated to get the shots. Health care workers are coping with pent-up demand for other kinds of care that had been delayed by the pandemic. “I think it’s clearly frustrating for all of us,” said Michael Pieciak, the commissioner of the Vermont Department of Financial Regulation who monitor
