Save America: Melt the Phones and Kill the Bill!

Americans should be terrified at what Nancy Pelosi is trying to muscle through the U.S. House of Representatives this week.

The Build Back Better Act is a recipe for instant socialism, courtesy of far-Left Democrats who were clamoring to spend $3.5 trillion on this bonanza of tax hikes, new outlays, and fresh welfare entitlements. As if that price tag were not enough, Capitol Hill sources say that the House Budget Committee’s text of this bill costs some $4.3 trillion. That is 23 percent pricier than the original measure, hand-crafted by the comparative fiscal conservative Bernie Sanders, Vermont’s out-of-the-closet socialist U.S. senator. Proving that it’s all relative, House Democrats make Sanders resemble a budget-cutting Ronald Reagan.

This bill offers a crib-to-casket approach to government — from childcare subsidies, to free community college for illegal aliens, to electric-car credits, to Medicare expansion, to an increase in the Death Tax. Whether popping out of the womb or being lowered into the ground, this wretched bill has something for everyone.

The Club for Growth, with which I have collaborated for years, is spending $2 million on ads to influence nine House Democrats who might sink this horrid measure. CFG also targeted Representative Adam Kinzinger of Illinois, a wobbly Republican whose knees might buckle before Pelosi’s proletarian jackpot. 

“Nancy Pelosi and Josh Gottheimer pick your pocket,” states CFG’s specific ad aimed at voters in New Jersey’s Fifth Congressional District. “Their spending spree sparked record inflation, driving up prices and eating into the value of your paycheck. Now they are pushing a scam they call ‘reconciliation.’ It’s really a $3 trillion tax hike that could cost your family over $25,000. And, experts warn, its higher investment taxes could slam your retirement savings. Remind Gottheimer he works for you. Tell him to stop Nancy Pelosi’s tax scam.”

“Washington is out of touch with America,” Club for Growth President David McIntosh observed. “Democrats and even some Republicans need to realize that their constituents will roundly reject the out-of-control spending and $3 trillion increase in taxes.”

Taxpayers who find this legislation nauseating should call, e-mail, and/or fax Kinzinger and the nine Democrats whom Club for Growth has identified as persuadable. 

Fax? Really?

Believe it or not, grassroots activists say that transmitting faxes really grabs the attention of congressmen and their staffers. While it’s easy to dismiss a pile of e-mails in an inbox, it’s tough to ignore a stream of pages spewing out of a fax machine in the Longworth House Office Building. Those who still can send faxes should share that joy with these lawmakers.

The House members below should hear from concerned citizens who want Nancy Pelosi’s tax-hiking spend-o-rama to go up in flames. Tell these congressmen to heed the advice of Fox News host and veteran economist Larry Kudlow: “Save America. Kill the bill!”
