Scandal-ridden alleged serial groper Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham is urging Congress to pass Joe Biden’s massive $3.5 far-left spending bill chock-full of socialist freebies, “climate change” extremism, and racist “equity” programs.
According to the Public News Service, “Lujan Grisham is one of several governors asking Congress to pass the Build Back Better Act, the larger of the two Biden administration infrastructure proposals. Congress is hashing out the size of the reconciliation bill, which would put billions toward the fight against climate change.”
Moderate Sens. Joe Manchin (D-WV) and Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ) have said they will not vote for the boondoggle but are willing to compromise on a much more slimmed-down package. Democrats in the Senate are not willing to budge on their leftist wish list.
Lujan Grisham said while arguing for the passage of the extreme bill, “We then signal to mid-schoolers, to high-schoolers, to current workers that there’s this huge energy future that allows them to tackle and combat climate change, make the state safer, and be in a leading international role.”
The Governor has forced many economy-crippling bills through the Legislature, including the “Energy Transition Act,” New Mexico’s version of the “Green New Deal,” which will completely collapse the booming revenue-generating oil and gas industry, which contributes over 30% to New Mexico’s state budget.
The ramifications of this bill include lost jobs, especially for Navajo workers in northeast New Mexico, increased energy prices, and brownouts come next Summer. The Piñon Post helped stop radical proposals in the 2021 Legislature, including a 20+ cent per gallon gas tax on the poor. But with billions in funding coming from this far-left bill in Congress, if it passes, it will create more opportunity for the Governor to ram through even more economy-crippling, job-killing proposals.
