  • Less than 10% of this money will go to crumbling infrastructure like roads, bridges and electric grid. The remaining 90% will go to vaguely defined things like human infrastructure to combat systemic racism, subsidizing the electric vehicle manufacturers and market with grant money, and something called the New Deal Climate Conservation Corps. Doesn't sound like an infrastructure bill, more like the green new deal but that's not how its being sold to the American people. Our country is trying to recover from a global pandemic, honestly when has massive government spending ever stimulated economic growth sufficient to get of the recession that's coming.

It is the same crime as Kim Young-sam and Kim Hyun-cheol of South korea, who committed evil crimes of abuse of authority by using the 'National Intelligence Service' of South korea. Investigate how President Biden and his son of the United States are using the CIA and FBI. 한국의 범죄자인 김영삼 대통령과 그의 아들인 김현철과 똑 같은 범죄의 케이스인 것 같다. 한국의 국정원을 이용을 하여서 직권남용의 악한 범행을 저지른 한국의 김영삼과 김현철과 같은 범행이다. 미국의 바이든 대통령과 그의 아들이 CIA와 FBI를 어떻게 이용을 하고 있는지 집중 조사를 하여라. Of course, do a public investigation and put him in jail. This case is about the rise and fall of the United States. Impeach the president, the father of the criminal. naturally 물론 공개 조사를하고 그를 감옥에 가두십시오. 이 사건은 미국의 흥망이 결정이 나는 일입니다. 범죄자의 아버지인 대통령도 탄핵을 하십시요. 당연히
