While working-class Americans struggle with the monthly grocery and heating bills, Democrat Joe Biden is going on a spending spree and buying himself up some votes from the government class which is also known collectively as the “administraive state.”
On Thursday it was revealed that in Biden’s newest budget utopia is a huge payout for them, according to CNBC:
President Joe Biden’s budget proposal for 2024 includes billions of dollars spread across federal agencies to combat climate change, with a bulk of the investment going toward boosting conservation and disaster resilience, cutting pollution and advancing clean energy technologies.
Some of Biden’s spending areas on climate include:
$24 billion for climate resilience and conservation
$16.5 billion for climate science and clean energy innovation
$6.5 billion for energy storage and transmission projects
$4.5 billion for jobs building clean energy infrastructure
$3 billion for advancing adaptation finance
$1.8 billion for environmental justice initiatives
$1.2 billion for the Energy Department’s industrial decarbonization activities
THE GREEN DREAM
The climate funding would move forward Biden’s commitment to cut U.S. carbon emissions in half by 2030 and achieve net-zero emissions by 2050. The proposal also comes as the White House continues to implement provisions of the Inflation Reduction Act, the largest climate bill ever passed by Congress.
That is a lot of money that is collected from the American people, and it is unclear what any of those initiatives will do to help the American people. But it will help keep the administrative state employed and pushing for their utopian Globalist dreams.
The administrative state are the people who are employed at massive federal agencies that do very little to nothing for the American people – in the first place- in what can really only be described as a massive Socialist- welfare scheme for Democrat friends and cronies of the ruling administration.
And now they get more money to do more things that no one needs for them to do.
Happy? Thank a Democrat.
Consider this from USA FACTS numbers that were available 2021:
As of the dates shown below, there were 23.7 million full-time and part-time employees of our Government, including:
- 4.0 million federal employees, of whom 8% (excluding armed forces) work part-time;
- 5.5 million state employees, of whom 29% work part-time; and
- 14.2 million local government employees, of whom 23% work part-time.
The functions of our Government employing the most people and the respective percentage of Government employees were:
- Education – 47%, of which 69% relate to elementary and secondary education, 30% relate to higher education, and 1% relate to other education;
- Active duty military – 6%;
- Hospitals – 6%; and
- Police – 5%.
Employees by segment and reporting unit (to the extent allocable) were as follows:

For 2020, 38% of government employees were represented by unions, including 30% of federal government employees, 34% of state government employees, and 45% of local government employees.
And here is a hint where Biden is going to get a lot of money to funnel into the agencies for environmental issues – from taxes.
Breitbart reported on Biden’s huge tax hike that was announced on Thursday:
Biden proposed raising the corporate tax rate from 21 percent to 28 percent, a scheme that will likely burden both large and small businesses, the outlet reported, adding:
While the term “corporation” is widely used to depict large companies such as Microsoft, Walmart, and McDonald’s, C-corporations are both small and large businesses, the most prevalent of corporations. Individual shareholders of C-corporations already have profits taxed both on a corporate and personal level (double taxation).
Biden announced a proposal on Thursday in Philadelphia to raise the corporate income tax by seven points, mostly erasing the Trump-era tax cuts Republicans enacted.
And isn’t that what Biden and the government-dependent administrative state really wants to do? Erase everything Trump.
