TOPLINE: Whip Scalise is committed to exposing President Biden and Congressional Democrats’ giveaways to radical special interest groups and the far-left provisions buried in their 1,684-page big government tax-and-spending spree. There are many “hidden gems” that Democrats are handing the socialists, and Whip Scalise will be highlighting them throughout the next few weeks.

 

$2.5 Billion for Tree Equity

 

In Section 11003, there is $2.5 billion for a tree-planting program “with a priority for projects that increase tree equity.”

 


 

How can the Biden Administration tell families, who are struggling to pay higher prices for food and gas, or small businesses who can’t find employees due to the Biden labor shortage, that they have to pay more in taxes so Democrats can spend $2.5 billion on tree equity?

 

BOTTOM LINE: Democrats can’t see the forest from the trees. “Equity” is at the forefront of their big government tax-and-spending spree instead of the millions of Americans who are hurting because of their self-made crises.
