How does a professional journalist type that, and how does that get through (what you would hope is) multiple rounds of editors?

Holding Billionaires accountable… by looking at accounts with $600 transactions. This isn’t even close to the worst thing in the bill, hopefully it just dies.

Biden did warn of a "dark winter" didn't he? No worries, it's probably just transitory.

The libs always ask for the solar system, and are happy to get the moon, and we fall for it E V E R Y time.  The incremental takeover of your life continues unabated.

Just turn down the thermostat and put on a sweater.

The courts have struggled with privacy rights in the digital age, but banking transactions clearly are not done in public.  The best comparison we could make is someone could see you go into a bank, but no idea what transactions you made or for how much.

So I'm not sure this will withstand constitutional scrutiny.

On the other hand, you look at what the NSA has been allowed to do with surveillance.  So if govt has these banking records, even if they don't monitor them, if you get pinged for a random audit would the govt then be able to review those transactions?

If some of the stuff I read about in that $3.5T reconciliation bill are real, it's outrageous.  Hundreds of billions for climate change bullshit that probably doesn't include one penny for nuclear.  I'm sure none of that money ends up in the hands of the Hunter Biden's of the world...

Also something about requiring 40% of your power from renewable by 2028 or something.  Guaranteed to result in huge cost increases, and disastrous rolling blackouts that will kill thousands.

Jan 2023 can't get here fast enough.  But the Dems have another whole 2-3 rounds of reconciliation bills before then.

Don't forget restoring the SALT deduction! 

But I really can't see the "legislative purpose" behind monitoring every transaction and account over $600.  Not seeing the difference versus, say, recording every phone conversation over 60 seconds long.

By the way, if this is true about Hunter paying the bills on an account for other family members, including The Big Guy...that sounds like a pretty big tax fraud.

Here you go Gut. Just making shit up. As if they’d even hold up to salt water and not screw up the ocean ecosystem.  If it isn’t Nuclear it’s stupid.

I mean you almost have to give it to them, pretending to want the rich to be taxed more while blatantly giving them tax breaks. 

Unrelated, It’s also funny that Biden has been looking at the port issues since June, and it took 5 months to come to the solution that they should work more hours.

The amount of the spending is outrageous, but even worse are the new Marxist programs being initiated in the bill that will further destroy any work ethic that remains.  And then you have medicare that is already actuarially broke and busted, and they want to add vision, dental and other additional care; literally insane.   They N E V E R stop.
