Rep. Jim Banks (R-IN), the chairman of the Republican Study Committee (RSC), released an exhaustive list of some of the most radical aspects of the Democrats’ “socialist takeover bill.”…

The RSC contended…that Democrats plans to hide the bill text to prevent Americans from knowing how radical the bill is.

“They’ve played ‘hide the ball’ with the bill text so as not to tip off the public as to what they’re putting in their bills…” the RSC wrote.

The RSC noted the bill would:

  1. Perpetuates labor shortage: Continues welfare benefits without work requirements for able-bodied adults without dependents at a time where there are…more openings than there are people looking for work.

  14. Includes dangerous & deadly green energy mandate: Effectively forces Americans to get 40% of their energy from wind, solar and other unreliable forms of energy within 8 years…Reliance on these energy sources has proven deadly.
  15. Includes kickbacks for the Left’s green energy special interest network:…
  16. Gives wealthy Americans tax credits:…
  17. Furthers Democrats’ social justice agenda: Includes “equity” initiatives throughout the bill and, in one instance, Democrats inserted “equity” language into a title which should have been focusing on the maintenance of the United States’ cyber security efforts…

  26. Chases green energy pipe dreams: $264 million to the EPA to conduct research with left-wing environmental justice groups…

  28. Punishes red states for failing to adopt Green New Deal provisions:…
  29. Includes new massive, bankrupting entitlement: The new paid leave entitlement would mandate workers get 12 weeks of paid leave and would cost $500 billion over ten years according to the CBO (page 1245)…
  30. Advances a totalitarian and paternalistic view of the federal government: Includes grants for organizations to treat individuals suffering from “loneliness” and “social isolation.”

I’m 61 years old and I remember a very different America than the one that we are living in today. I am overwhelmed by this information! I know that the Word tells us that there are none righteous, but I can hardly grasp that obvious evil is so rampant in what used to be a Christian nation. My prayer is that God will continue to have mercy on us all. Also that the people who are doing the enemy’s evil deeds will have an awakening, and that the blinders will fall off, so that they can turn from their wrong doings. That they will then put as much time, energy and money into spreading the gospel message. I pray that they, and everyone come to know Christ as Savior. In Jesus name I pray, amen.

This bill would be totally devistating to our culture and our country as we know it. These far-leftists have COMPLETELY LOST IT!! I have sent multiple e-mails and other messages to my elected officials to vote Against this horrible bill. I hope others will do the same. This is PURE Insanity! But again, I should Not be surprised. God help us!

I am always amazed and stunned seeing the multiple ways evil is manifest in these tumultuous times. Evil doers are trying so hard to take us as a nation away from our God respecting roots and foundation. But we cannot allow that to continue. They are sneaky but we believers have the
Mind of Christ and His wisdom. We also have the armor of God to wear and use to bring down demon forces behind the evil practices. And we have the weapon of prayer to cqll out to our mighty God and petition Him to conquer evil and deliver us. Let us pray continually and stand dim against every manner of evil. God, come down and remove and destroy all this evil. Rescue the abused children and deliver this country.
Raise up a mighty army of Your warriors and give
them authority, power, and wisdom to know what to do to stop this atrocious bill and other matters that arise. Raise up righteous men and wisdom to fight on these front lines in government to make changes for good and block evil agendas. Keep the lawsuits coming and direct judges and SCOTUS justices to make righteous decisions according to Your law and our Constitutional rights as Americans.
Thank you Lord for not giving up on us and for helping us to rise again. One nation undivided under God. IJN I pray and give thanks.

I can’t help but think of the scene in Lord of the Rings where it is said “YOU SHALL NOT pass!” In the name of Jesus our King and the authority given to Believers over all the powers of the enemy I declare this bill SHALL NOT PASS. It SHALL BE EXPOSED for what it is and the citizens of this nation will not be denied the truth!

Father, we declare this bill dead. Encourage your saints to keep praying. Let the link to the bill be shown so people will know how awful it is. Thank you for revealing this corruption and we thank you that we can stand against it. Open the peoples’ eyes so they can see the truth.

A merciful father in heaven, we worship you Lord we thank you for being our God for being our protector. Father the United States was built upon righteous people Christian people who put you first who came to worship you every day and thank you for the many blessings that you bestowed on the United States. Oh my Lord, we have people in this land that are Attempting to take you out of our lives, out of our world, out of this country. I ask your father to put a hunger in their heart for you , that they can see, and feel your love that you have for them as well. Father in the name of Jesus our savior I just asked that you send down your angels to stop this horrifying change that is taking part in our land. In his name we pray amen

If anyone can include a link to the full, undiluted version of this monstrosity, please post in comments. Not surprisingly, it seems to be tough to find via the “controlled internet”.
Attention Casey Harper – you maybe can help us out here? We MUST get this into the hands of people to “dissect”.

*my prayer*
Lord God – we know full well that the evil intention of this legislation is to demolish (not just damage) the system of capitalism that has worked so well in our nation. A system You gave America incentive and guidance for. We know Lord that this legislation was created by godless people who do not fear You. They want to cripple Christianity and any outreach it has. They hate You, don’t know You and want to foolishly try to eradicate any reminder of You.
You gave us this nation Lord. You established it for Your purposes. We are sorry Lord that we lost our way… that we abandoned You and what You called us to do. We got distracted and apathetic Lord – please forgive us. You wanted us to be Your presence in the culture around us but too many of us got comfortable with the 4 walls of “church”. We stayed away from the “uncomfortable situations” that You called and directed us to “be salt in”. Lord, have mercy on us – forgive us – send a renewing within us to be involved in every element within our society. Send revival across our land Lord. Some of us need Your direction where to be and what to do but some of us know exactly what to do and that You desire actions from us – not words.
Lord, we humbly but firmly ask for You to stir members within our government to stand firmly against this legislation. Lord, even if they have been for it or have agreed to it – miraculously move in their being and change their hearts and minds. We ask that You Lord would cause a few to switch sides and fully oppose this heinous legislation. As they do so, guide them to be wise on how they must do it. Give them boldness of heart.
As the body of Christ, we stand united in our hearts and prayers AGAINST this legislation and we decree it will NOT pass. In Your holy name we ask this – amen.

Oh Lord please show mercy and do not let this bill

October 16, 2021

This bill sounds like it is extremely bad for America. It will destroy our way of life. The issues that money is being proposed to spend upon are meant to destroy our nation. the fact that this bill is being allowed to “hang around”, even though it is obviously going to destroy our nation, is reminiscent of Obamacare. It is interesting how Nancy Pelosi is the common thread. She is once again, out there promoting the radical agenda. This time around, she has her own vested interest- pork for Nancy Pelosi, as part of what this proposed bill would provide. Lord, as you already know, our nation is already in DEEP trouble. Please, Lord Jesus, do NOT allow this socialistic , evil nonsense become law. We cannot afford for this to happen. In Jesus’ name.

October 16, 2021

God saw all of this taking place before they even constructed thus bill. He is aware and already has a plan in place for our country. The enemy thinks that he has a lead and a foot in the door…but that door is about yo be slammed shut because our combined prayers are a powerful two edged sword. We need to be aware if their plans, but not overtaken by them. We are seeing the physical world react…but we must remember how we are winning via the blood of Christ in the spiritual world. This too shall pass. It might hurt our pockets in the short term, but it isn’t the first time and it won’t be the last. However even through financial crisis, God provides to His people who follow His Ways. He is our Faithfulness and our Shield.

Throughout the whole world the cries on believer’s cry out to the Creator.

LORD God Almighty still hears from on high and sits on the thrown in Heaven, with Lord Jesus Christ, at his right hand interceding for us as we cry out to him.

As in Revelation, the prayers of the Saints fill the bowls.

Although the wrath of God is being poured out in bowls upon the Earth and in the Heavens as a tribulation upon us fulfilling the prophecy of the “the hearts of most will grow cold”.

We stand firm in the faith that Heaven is real and that a judgement for all sinners and saints awaits us in Paradise. Allowing the Saints to enter in.

The sign are obvious here on Earth yet great and ominous signs are in the Heavens also.

Give us courage and strength for each new day, God will make a way, where there seems to be no way, he works in ways we can not see, he will make a way.

Take courage and stand against evil. As you turn the other cheek stand firm.

October 16, 2021

All of this makes my head (and my hear) hurt. Prayer this morning for God’s intervention. That D.C. policy and lawmakers would see their plans crumble before their eyes; that they would have to acknowledge that a force (the power of God) far greater than they have contended with them.

October 16, 2021

Father God, we need You to act divinely and in miraculous ways that only You can. Please act on our behalf—please STOP this bill from being passed. Speak through dreams, conversations, ‘coincidences’, etc in every single person that will be voting on this bill. Let them not feel political pressure, but the true weight of what this decision carries. Let them be so overwhelmed that they come begging to You for Your wisdom and then the strength to vote NO on this bill. Silence the voice of our Enemy. Silence the seduction of getting ‘free money’ for whatever cause they want. Let the voice of reason, of thinking of the millions of citizens and how it will affect them and how this decision costs more than they say and the weight of debt that will encumber all of us.
We humbly beg You, Lord, to act on behalf of the remnant in our nation that wants to stand in Your principles and the foundation that was set at the beginning of our country. We want America to be pleasing to You and we know that this bill is anything but that.
Asking in the mighty name of Jesus…

Jesus said to them, “Tell that fox that I will force demons out of people and heal people today and tomorrow. I will finish my work on the third day. Luke 13:32

They have bitten off more than they can chew. They cannot and will not pass this demonic bill.

If this bill were passed, our God given nation as we know it would be no more.

The enemy cannot hurry time…We WILL finish the Lord’s work first. We continue to hold fast and stand!
