Like clockwork, on Friday, the far-left Democrats in New Mexico’s U.S. House delegation, Reps. Teresa Leger de Fernandez (D-NM-03) and Melanie Stansbury (D-NM-01) voted with the radical Democrats for Joe Biden’s extremist spending bill, erroneously dubbed the “Build Back Better Act.”
The far-left bill, which is estimated to cost around $1.9 trillion, included $500 billion for so-called “climate change” initiatives, which are largely spent through “clean energy tax credits” to heavily subsidize failing “alternative” energy sources like wind and solar.
The bill also includes “[u]niversal preschool for all 3- and 4-year olds” and “4 weeks of federal paid parental, sick or caregiver leave,” according to CNBC among other fringe spending proposals that will cost future Americans trillions in debt.
Following the bill’s passage, far-left Sen. Ben Ray Luján, who voted for the Senate version of the bill, claimed, “With the support of Americans across this country, this historic legislation will make a difference in the lives of every community across America.”
Rep. Yvette Herrell (R-NM-02), who did not vote for Biden’s boondoggle, wrote, “Build Back Broke will go down in history as more disastrous than ‘Too Big to Fail’ bailouts, Obamacare, and the 2016 Ghostbusters movie combined.”
Stansbury claimed on Twitter, “It’s hard to overstate how historic the BBB is for New Mexico. It will help address the climate crisis & touch every aspect of our lives from childcare to elder care, cut taxes for families, and reduce the costs of childcare, home care, education, healthcare, Rx drugs, & housing.”
The fringe spending package, which heavily targets leftist industries, may backfire on the Democrats if it reaches final passage, just adding another feather in Republicans’ caps come election time. Democrats have already suffered electoral losses at the ballot box in 2021 and those losses are predicted to extend to 2022 and beyond.
