I Prayed have prayed
Lord, we ask that You would give President Biden wisdom and that You would open his eyes to the dangers of this bill.

President Biden on Monday pledged to fight as hard as possible to pass an infrastructure package as he defended his $2.25 trillion proposal amid Republican criticism that it contains provisions unrelated to infrastructure.

Speaking to reporters at the White House upon returning from Camp David, where he spent Easter weekend, Biden suggested Republican lawmakers are acting hypocritically in criticizing his plan.

“It’s kind of interesting that when the Republicans put forward an infrastructure plan, they thought everything from broadband from dealing with other things was in the range of infrastructure. Now they’re saying that only a small portion of what I am saying is infrastructure,” Biden told reporters. “It’s interesting to see how their definition of infrastructure has changed. They know we need it.”  . . .

Biden also pushed back on Republican criticism of his plan to raise the corporate tax rate to 28 percent in order to pay for the package, saying there is “no evidence” that doing so will drive U.S.-based companies to relocate in other countries.  . . .

Biden unveiled his $2.25 trillion infrastructure package last week. It has since generated substantial Republican criticism over provisions included to address climate change and a corporate tax rate increase the president has proposed to pay for the plan. . . .

Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.), a critical swing vote, complicated that path Monday when he said he didn’t support Biden’s plan to raise the corporate tax rate to 28 percent and had other problems with the bill as well.

Sen. Roy Blunt (R-Mo.) in an appearance on “Fox News Sunday” argued that 30 percent of Biden’s plan focuses on traditional infrastructure and suggested that the White House reduce the dollar amount of the package to about $615 billion in order to pass it. . . .

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) said last week that Republicans would not support the bill and pledged to fight Democrats’ agenda “every step of the way.”

The White House has said Biden is open to input from Republicans and Democrats and will hold meetings on the proposal after the Easter recess, but officials have made clear Biden is not ruling out trying to pass a package without GOP support. Biden would not say Monday where there was room for negotiation on the proposal.  . . .

Senate Parliamentarian opens the door for ditching reconciliation

According to The Gateway Pundit, “The Senate Parliamentarian on Monday ruled that Democrats can go around the GOP filibuster on two more bills, paving the way for Biden’s gargantuan infrastructure bill to pass in two separate packages with simple-majority votes.

This is a win for Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) who has been fiercely fighting to get rid of the filibuster to push through the left’s radical agenda.

Last month Democrat Senators went around Republicans by passing Joe Biden’s $1.9 trillion ‘Covid relief bill’ through budget reconciliation, a process that requires only a simple majority vote.

The Democrats may be able to use the same reconciliation to ram through Biden’s $2.25 trillion infrastructure package that has almost nothing to do with infrastructure. . . .

While this is an early ruling and there are still hoops to jump through, it will enable Schumer and Pelosi to split Biden’s infrastructure proposal into two separate packages. . . .

Republicans argued that the Democrats are abusing the reconciliation process.

CNN reported:

The Senate parliamentarian has ruled that Democrats may amend the budget resolution they used for their Covid-19 relief bill and attach another set of reconciliation instructions to it, according to two sources familiar with the matter.

The ruling is a key step for Democrats as they weigh their options for moving infrastructure legislation, potentially giving them a route to pass new legislation without Republican votes. It’s important to note, however, that some details are still going to have to be worked out with the parliamentarian, and it was not immediately clear whether it could be used to pass President Joe Biden’s infrastructure plan.

A Democratic Senate aide familiar with the parliamentarian’s ruling told CNN on Monday “there is no doubt that this was good news,” but cautioned that there will likely need to be more rulings before Democrats could move forward using the reconciliation process to advance the President’s infrastructure plan. “But there is still a great deal that needs to be worked out,” the aide said. “This was just the opening salvo in what will be a long and complicated process.”

Democrat Senator Joe Manchin (WV) on Monday said he will not support Joe Biden’s corporate tax hike which is designed to supposedly “offset” the infrastructure package’s costs.

Joe Manchin said on Monday he rejects Joe Biden’s corporate tax increase to 28% and he may not be the only Democrat to break with the president on the enormous tax increase. . . .

“MY PEOPLE (not the world), perish for lack of knowledge.” We MUST get informed and look at what’s really going on!! Our country is being taken over by radical globalists with a one world agenda. Don’t be deceived! Wake up! Wisdom, common sense, discernment, good judgement , along with knowledge and understanding, are what we have to have at this time! Your political party should be set aside. Let’s get on God’s side! He alone has all the answers and He says,” call on me and I will answer! AND HE WILL!

    I am another Suzy and totally disagree that this is a good bill at this time since so much money is being currently spent that will only leave this nation financially in a pit where there is no end (sounds like hell). Read the bill carefully and you will realize that Biden is setting up what the new world order wants. To rob Peter to pay Paul (taking from the rich to give to the poor) is not a spiritually sound principal and is the premise followed in communist countries. Venezuela initiated a similar agenda and the country went belly-up. The citizens left for America. In China the majority of citizens live in high rises (including the old and young) and home ownership is only for the government officials. Sometimes 10-15 people are in one apartment. I’m sure American would not support this type of living arrangement.

    Let us pray that God will not allow this nation to fall under the control of the new world order. The official RESET is scheduled for May 2021 in Davos. Read the agenda so that we can stay ‘Awake” in prayer.

    “The ‘right’ to education, the ‘right’ to health care, the ‘right’ to food and housing.
    That’s not freedom, that’s dependency. Those aren’t rights, those are the rations of slavery – hay and a barn for human cattle.”
    ~ Alexis de Tocqueville

    “If Socialists understood Economics, they wouldn’t be Socialists”
    ~ Friedrich Hayek, Nobel Prize Winner, Economics

    Father please protect this wonderful gift that you have given us in this amazing nation of freedom and liberty. Please help us to be good stewards of this nation that has been the light of liberty throughout the world for many generations. Please continue to protect it so we can continue to spread your gospel message and be an example to the world of what a nation founded on Judeo-Christian principles.

      I am stunned at the spirit of fear and deception that is rampant in our country in people that call themselves believers! Very concerning.

Oh, my, it seems surreal: so much money, so many proposals, so many opinions, and all of it just seems to be wood, hay, and stubble, with no substance.
Seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things that we truly need shall be added unto to us. Our heavenly Father owns the cattle on a thousand hills, and the land is His, and no good thing will He withhold from those who walk uprightly.
But he who troubles his own house will inherit the wind, and the fool will be a servant to the wise of heart.
Walk in wisdom, redeeming the time, for the days, indeed, are evil.

What happened to the comments from earlier? Is IFA now being censored by MSM oligarchs? If so, why have a comment section? We now live is a country where free speech is only a memory and the passing of many yesterday’s. I hesitate to even post, however…

JB’s radical plan to implement the largest tax hike in history for Americans is a massive giveaway to China and many other countries. He accomplishes backlash on Americans by sending thousands of factories abroad, millions of jobs to other countries, and in turn, trillions of dollars to competing nations. JB’s “plan” will not only crush America, but will decimate the manufacturing industry, just as Billy C. and B.Hussein O. did, while in office.

The only BBB (Build-Back-Better???) plan will be to promote “CCP-China” and other countries gaining USA manufacturing jobs. JB continues to rob the American workers and desecrate families. The USA will sacrifice jobs, thereby resulting in higher taxes. The $$$ costs will trickle down from so-called elitist resulting in higher prices for everything. The cost of imported goods and loss of jobs will devastate the consumer, especially the working class of America. Who can afford commodities when you have no source of income or can’t afford food and clothing; never mind healthcare or medicine. The rich will continue to get richer. JB will pad his pockets and the pockets of the elite. The “average Joe” and his family will go hungry, lose their home, farms, and small businesses. Meanwhile, the rich quickly buy up houses, land, and small businesses now in foreclosure. This “so-called” Global Pandemic has set America back decades from closings and lost wages.

It is apparent that JB cares NOTHING for the Americans. As usual, Americans are last in line for jobs or business advancement. JB continues to betray Americans by his cruel, viscous edicts as only a dictator would impose. His open borders and legislation benefit only the elitist by stealing jobs from the deserved, legal citizens. The illegal aliens will take jobs from the rightful American people. JB’s slogan of “BBB” does nothing but impose hardships on the American people. He continues to kick us until we’re down. Once down, he continues to kick until our spirit is broken. The only benefactors are other nations, illegal aliens, and the elite.

My prayer is simple: God move mightily in America. Impose Your will over the unjust. Bring alignment to this nation, according to Your Word. Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth, as it is in Heaven. I plead the Blood of Jesus over this nation and over Your righteous people. Move swiftly and bring about justice for America and Your people.Rain down Your righteousness and justice soon, O God. In Jesus name, Amen!

    Clearly, if people are spiritually aware, they will “see” Biden’s administration’s plan for America, and it’s not good. Facts are truth. What you’ve stated is truth. I agree with your prayer for America. May God have mercy on us.

      To God be the glory! Amen!
