RADICAL POLICIES THAT COULD PASS IF DEMS WIN GEORGIA

Lord, we pray That Your Word and truth would be proclaimed in this nation. Help our nation to turn back to You.

Pollsters and pundits predicted that the November election would be a landslide for Democrats. They were highly favored not just to take the presidency but to expand their House majority and retake control of the Senate. . . .

Joe Biden is projected to win the presidency, pending official vote certifications and recounts, but the race was far, far closer than expected. And Republicans actually picked up seats in the House, shrinking the Democratic majority to single digits. The GOP exceeded expectations in Senate races as well, with the current balance of power set at 48 Democrats, 50 Republicans.

There are two races headed to a runoff—both in Georgia. If Democrats win both, they will have a razor-thin majority, as the presumptive vice-president elect Kamala Harris will be the tie-breaking vote.

This means that, essentially, a prospective Biden administration’s ability to pass a sweeping policy agenda hinges on the outcome of the two runoffs. If Republicans win one or both seats and retain a majority, much of the Biden agenda is dead-on-arrival. However, if Democrats secure that razor-thin majority they could pass major policy initiatives such as a bloated, budget-busting stimulus bill, a $15 minimum wage, tax hikes, and government healthcare.

“President-elect Joseph R. Biden Jr.’s transition team is preparing multiple sets of policy proposals for the economy, health care, climate change and other domestic issues, including the ambitious agenda Mr. Biden laid out in his winning campaign, while acknowledging it may have to be pared back in recognition of divided government,” the New York Times reports.  . . .

So, it’s certainly worth considering the potential benefits of divided government. Here are four radical policy proposals that GOP control of the Senate would take off the table.

Congress’s first round of stimulus efforts exploded the federal budget and led to record levels of debt. Moreover, the CARES Act’s major programs have also proven rife with wastefrauddysfunction, and abuse. They’ve also been ineffective in many instances.

Yet Biden and congressional Democrats want to pass another behemoth package similar to the CARES Act. Senate Republicans, for their part, want to pass a relatively modest $500 billion package.  . . .

Biden wants to pass a federal $15 minimum wage, and has even made it part of his “transition agenda.” It’s reasonable to predict that he could attempt to include such a national wage mandate in a COVID-19 stimulus package, infrastructure bill, or must-pass budget deal. This might sound like a good thing for workers at first glance, but it’s not.

Small businesses are struggling throughout the country under the weight of the COVID-19 crisis and government lockdowns. Many have already gone out of businesses and millions more are barely staying afloat. Minimum wage increases always destroy jobs. Even under normal conditions, the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office projects a federal $15 minimum wage would destroy up to 3.7 million jobs.  . . .

Biden campaigned on partially reversing the GOP 2017 tax reform, even though it clearly helped boost incomes and the economy after its passage. One key change the Democrat wants to pass is an increase in the corporate tax rate up to 28 percent.

This is a bad idea for many reasons, but most importantly, the burden of this tax hike would not fall on “Big Business”—it would be borne mostly by American workers.

Research has consistently shown that corporate taxes, sold as making corporate big wigs pay their “fair share,” are actually passed onto workers through lower wages and reduced investment and job creation. According to the Tax Foundation, “studies appear to show that labor bears between 50 percent and 100 percent of the burden of the corporate income tax, with 70 percent or higher the most likely outcome.” . . .

Similarly, the fate of Biden’s proposal to expand government-controlled healthcare also likely rests on the Georgia runoff outcome. The Democrat wants to expand the federal government’s currently vast role in the healthcare market by having it provide a “public option” via Medicare to the public.

Supposedly, this government-run healthcare option would “compete” with the private sector, rather than abolish it outright like other proposals. However, because the government can both subsidize itself and mandate that healthcare providers accept lower compensation rates, it will inevitably drive private insurers out of business and leave us all dependent on the government for healthcare. . . .

Americans often gripe about Washington, D.C.’s inability to get anything done. There’s validity to this sentiment.  . . .

It’s statistically proven that the growth of government and federal spending are slower under divided government. And it’s no coincidence that after the election results came in, the business sector reacted very favorably to the prospect of a gridlocked Congress unable to pass any more interventionist policies. After all, a Stanford study found that the Biden tax and regulatory agenda, if implemented, would kill 4.9 million jobs and decrease average household income by $6,500.

So, yes, divided government might be frustrating sometimes. But this time around, it would be great news for the economy and the American people.

  1. Dear Heavenly Father, You alone are worthy of all praise. We pray that You would deliver us from all those who want to destroy this great nation that You have so generously blessed us with. Deliver and protect us from those who want to burden us down with heavy taxation. dear Lord open the eyes of those who cannot see the great harm that it causes; help them to understand, before and without having to actually experience it. Help them to see the loss that it causes families, churches and charities. help them to see that the root of heavy taxation and redistribution is not generosity but greed. Deliver us from those who want to control our finances, jobs, families, charities, churches, minds, consciences, and freedoms. Forgive us of our many sins; including our complacency, our fear to stand up to and against evil, and our making idols of the thoughts and feelings of people. Help us to remember that yes You did tell us to love one another but You also told us to put nothing above You. Lead us not into temptation, but, Deliver us from all evil. Yours is the kingdom, power, and glory forever. And I praise the splendor of Your holiness and thank You for Your steadfast, faithful, love that endures for ever and ever; and for Your mercies that are new every morning. Hallelujah! I ask all these things in Jesus precious name above all names. Amen and Amen.

    Amen! 3
  2. Father, you have promised to care for us, to protect us, and to intervene as you did when you parted the Red Sea. We are faced with massive election fraud, with taxation that will cripple businesses, and make it harder for families to stay afloat in the economy proposed by liberals. Please intervene and in doing so, may your name be glorified and proclaimed as Redeemer, Provider, and Deliverer! In the name of Jesus, our Lord and Savior. Amen

    Amen! 11
  3. In the Name of Jesus I pray the prayer of Asa. 2 Chronicles 14:11….And Asa cried unto the Lord his God, and said, Lord, it is nothing with thee to help with many, or with no power: help us, O Lord our God: for we rest on thee, and in thy Name are we come against this multitude: O lord, thou art our God: let not man prevail against thee.

    In the next verse” the Lord smote the Ethiopians before Asa and before Judah, and the Ethiopians fled.”

    This battle is the Lord’s! We must hold strong and keep praying for truth and justice and above all mercy for this nation!

    Amen! 9
  4. Amen! This election is not over!
    Father we need you to hear our prays for your Spirit to come down and fight this battle for justice and truth.
    Our prayers are very powerful!
    Keep praying!

    Amen! 28
  5. Father, In Jesus’ name protect the workers of America, small businesses, private insurance companies in the days, months, years to come. Prevent the destruction of millions of job caused by mismanagement, choices, legislation not prayed over seeking Your wisdom, Your discernment, Your will as You know the past, present, future. Cause those in power to pray and seek Your will, not their own will.

    Lord, have mercy on us. Disallow the Democrat’s control of the Senate, Lord. Thank You for the Conservatives who were elected to Congress. Thank You for being with us no matter what comes, You are in control. Amen

    Amen! 25
  6. Let’s us, in unity, be sure to declare openly, publicly and always verbally this truth — Joe Biden DID NOT WIN. Nor did many other democrats elected to office. WHY declare that?
    So many articles and news feeds still insist on calling the race in favor of Biden. Sadly, even some Christian news feeds do the same by writing articles that slant us toward Biden being the next president.
    This election was fraudulent in everyway conceivable. Every state was affected by the compromise of integrity in multiple forms. It is the biggest scheme and fraud to ever be perpetrated on America.
    I ask myself (or others) 1 simple question. When do you remember in your lifetime an election where thousands upon thousands would show up at a rally to support a president week after week…and then NOT elect him???!!! When in history do you remember a presidential candidate holding a rally in which maybe 50 people “might” show up to listen but then those people actually “elect” the president in election??? It’s such basic math that it’s incredible. Biden is NOT president elect. A man that barely generates enough enthusiasm to warm up a cup of coffee…has legally and honestly won the office of president?? As Joe constantly says..”Come on man”. That’s right – who are they trying to kid. We are looking at the greatest deception trying to be pulled off in America in our history. And in the name and power of Almighty God – I’m never going to agree with it and I will stand against it.

    Amen! 35
    1. I agree with you, but someone tell me WHY the apparent leader of this organization at the top of this current newsletter state that “it is apparent that Joe Biden” won??? I am very unhappy about his statements and disagree completely with him WRITING such things! Therefore, I am leaving this organization. I am NOT going to support an organization that obviously is stating things that are NOT true! It is NOT APPARENT THAT BIDEN WON! Why would we pray with you? I am GONE.

      Amen! 2
      1. I would encourage you not to leave. The article was written from an “economic organization” and although I don’t know for sure, it’s possible that their viewpoint is somewhat foggy or just different.
        We need to see different points of view but more so, we will always need prayer warriors. So I encourage you to pray about it and possibly reconsider. God bless!!

        Amen! 5
        1. I have to agree with Bonnie on this one. IFA has been a rock of support for the remnant who are praying continuously for President Trump and for those who would steal this election to be brought to justice. I have saved many of your articles and re-read them when I need strength and encouragement. Printing this article is like a slap in the face, basically telling us to give up, Biden will win.

          Amen! 1
      2. Yes, I completely agree with what you’ve said. IFA is one of the only sources still encouraging prayer for President Trump, for the fraud to be revealed, for those guilty to be brought to justice, and for the words of the prophets to be fulfilled. Publishing an article such as this is a slap in the face to all of us who are standing with IFA in prayer for our election.

        Amen! 1
  7. Wind of God blow on this upcoming election. We declare voter fraud is and will be exposed. We thank you for putting in office who you choose. Arrest demonic powers and dark forces that wish to destroy our nation.

    Amen! 34
  8. I fully believe this writing is biblically based and comes from a God-fearing, God-loving precious
    blood-bought soldier of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ. Amen! Thank you! and across our nation this Thxgiving day we join hearts to thank You, God!!
    Hallelujah! Amen!
    Psalm 91
    2 Chronicles 7:14

    Amen! 9
  9. Thank you, Father, that Pres. Trump is in office until you change it. Don t give us what we deserve, show mercy. Bring us back to our Judeo-Christian roots as a country that fears you. Only then will we be GREAT again! Save Biden’s eternal soul.

    Amen! 37
  10. Father God I beseech You and humble myself and ask for not just truth in the election, but Your truth of who You are to penetrate the hearts of All those who are very foolishly thinking that their lies and sins are hidden from You. I’m asking for Your very self be revealed in Spirit and Truth to All that are desperately lost at this time. Give them dreams and visions and put people in their path that can be Your witnesses for such a time as this. Open their spiritual eyes to see Your love through Christ Jesus. Send Your Holy Spirit and even Your angels to war for their souls. Let this be part of Your mercy to our country’s help that we are asking You for. Save their souls like You saved mine. Give them the ability to yield to Your Spirit of Grace. And send co laborers to mentor them to maturity I ask in My Lord Jesus Name. Amen

    Amen! 40
  11. Unfortunately, the demonrats have become more corrupt and EVIL as ever before! These are people of SATAN and certainly NOT Christians. SATAN works hard through his minions here on earth to up end GODs plan for our salvation.

    The day is coming when GOD will cast judgement on these Disciples of Satan and they all will be cast into the LAKE of FIRE!

    Even though this election was Fraudulently obtained: The BIG take away is: GOD IS WATCHING!

    Amen! 25
