Within 100 days as president, Joe Biden has managed to make a series of spending proposals that amount to $6 trillion. With one package after the other, the only way that Biden can hope to pay for this plethora of proposals is to raise taxes on American businesses and people.

The nation has been down this road before. Tax increases lead to fewer jobs, higher unemployment, and greater poverty rates. At a time when so many people are struggling, the last step the nation should be taking is the increase of taxation.

Moderate Democrats are currently balking at Biden’s senseless liberal spending spree. Newsmax reports that moderates within the Democrat Party believe this heavy spending will backfire on the left during midterm races.

The Problem with Big Spending

Left-wing strategies are already sounding the alarm that these gigantically expensive packages are bound to hurt Democrats in 2022.

Democrats maintain that leftist lawmakers are like children in a candy store, not caring about the consequences of their actions. Other leftist strategists assert that Biden’s proposed $6 trillion in spending gives Republicans plenty of ammunition for attack ads and other means of campaigning to regain the majority.

Additional strategists for the Democrat Party questioned the “endgame” that liberal lawmakers have in mind as they get behind all this crazy spending. The notion that Democrats already know they’ll lose midterms, and therefore seek to make the most of their majority while it lasts, is out there too.

Saving America from a Recession

Many conservatives believe that if Biden gets his way on all his spending proposals, a U.S. recession is imminent.

However, multiple bills favored by this president cannot pass the Senate with the filibuster in place. Seeing as Democrats have abandoned trying to work with GOP lawmakers, they can kiss goodbye the chance of getting ten Republicans to vote alongside them.

Right now, the U.S. filibuster and GOP lawmakers are the only forces standing between America and a recession. Between the liberal spending, changes in districts, and retiring leftist House members, the midterm races aren’t looking too good for Democrats.

At the very least, Democrats are not in much of a position to hold onto the House majority after November 2022.

Do you think all the spending that Democrats are pushing for will backfire on them during next year’s congressional midterm races? Let us know down below in the comments section.
