They’re BACK!

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY SEPTEMBER 8, 2021

     CONGRESS CAME BACK YESTERDAY AND THAT’S USUALLY BAD NEWS FOR JUST ABOUT EVERYONE

EXCEPT LIBERAL ACTIVISTS.

     THERE ARE TWO BIG ITEMS ON THE DEMOCRATS’ AGENDA. ONE IS A SO-CALLED INFRASTRUCTURE BILL

THAT WILL COST OVER $1 TRILLION. HARD CORE LEFTISTS LIKE ALEXANDRIA OCASIO CORTEZ SAY THEIR

COALITION WON’T VOTE ON THE INFRASTRUCTURE MEASURE UNTIL CONGRESS APPROVES THEIR SOCIAL

SPENDING AGENDA OF MORE THAN $3 TRILLION. DOES ANYONE SAY “WE CAN’T AFFORD IT” ANYMORE?

CONGRESS THINKS OUR INITIALS ARE ATM, NOT USA.

     SOME DEFENDERS OF THE SPENDING AND INCREASING DEBT SAY LOOK AT CHINA, WHICH IS ESTIMATED

TO BE SPENDING $6 TRILLION ON INFRASTRUCTURE. YES, BUT CHINA ISN’T IN DEBT, THANKS TO MANY

AMERICAN COMPANIES DOING BUSINESS THERE AND MANY PRODUCTS MADE THERE, SHIPPED HERE AND

BOUGHT BY US.

     THE FOUNDERS AND SUCCEEDING GENERATIONS WOULD BE SHOCKED THAT GOVERNMENT HAS

BECOME A NANNY STATE WITH EXPECTATIONS FROM TOO MANY PEOPLE TO RELY ON WASHINGTON TO

TAKE CARE OF THEM INSTEAD OF RELYING ON SELF.

     AS I WRITE IN MY BOOK “AMERICA’S EXPIRATION DATE,” DEBT IS ONE OF THE MAIN CONTRIBUTORS TO

THE COLLAPSE OF GREAT NATIONS. I’M CAL THOMAS.
