Bill guests on CURE America with Star Parker
The $3.5 trillion spending bill proposed by President Joe Biden and his progressive friends on the Left called the “Human Infrastructure Bill” is being debated in Congress right now. Most of it is to build the socialist paradise that Senate Budget Chairman Bernie Sanders and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi dream about: new household entitlements, new employer mandates, Medicare benefits expansion and all kinds of corporate welfare subsidies in the name of the Green New Deal and industrial policy spending.
The last thing the American people need is a slowed down economy with a bloated federal government that sends us further into debt. We can’t afford it! The result will be higher taxes on corporations and on capital gains and when corporations have to pay more, then you and I have to pay more in gas prices, in food prices, in goods and services these companies provide. It is a disastrous way to approach an already troubled economy post Covid.
On this week’s episode of CURE American, we bring together a group of experts to walk us through this $3.5 trillion progressive spending bill to tell us what’s in it and why it will hurt our economy. Steve Moore, economist, and founder of the Committee to Unleash Prosperity; Bill Walton, Managing Editor, Host and Executive Producer of The Bill Walton Show; Horace Cooper, Senior Fellow at the National Center for Public Policy Research; Tom McClusky, Vice President of Governmental Affairs for the March for Life; and, Richard Manning, President of Americans for Limited Government all join in the in-depth conversation.
Thank you. I wanted to catch up in the aftermath of Gina Raimondo’s splendid adventure in Beijing. She is, of course, the Commerce Secretary. Bill, I just wondered, what was she doing in Beijing? What are the things, I guess as importantly, she did before she went, and then what went down while she was there?Watch now
On the other side, as you’ve been sounding alarm and everybody else involved with the committee for present danger China, has been talking about, Xi’s intentions are pretty clear and they’re pretty hostile, and he seems to be battening China down to be in war mode, and the signals are all over from beginning to kick Western due diligence companies out of the country to arresting key… Of course, this has been going on… While arresting key executives of big companies that are not playing ball with the Chinese Communist Party, and they seem increasingly to be on a war footing and Wall Street and the big multinationals are in denial. They just want this to pass.Watch now
We are back and we’re pleased, as always, at this point in the week generally with the opportunity to speak to Bill Walton, a recovering master of the universe on Wall Street. A man who has, among other things become a prominent figure in the conservative movement in our nation, as well as a very engaged philanthropist, as well as dedicated public citizen I think it’s fair to say. And he’s a man of many, many parts and we’re always happy to have a chance to tap his insights, as well as those that he generates in the course of a terrific television podcast that he does, the Bill Walton Show.Watch now
We are back and Bill Walton is still with us, I’m happy to say. Bill, we were talking earlier about some of the ideas that are afloat in terms of trying to, well help keep the Chinese government afloat, I think it’s fair to say. Very ill-advised ideas like this science and technology agreements renewal. I wanted to turn to some other evidence of the difficulties the regime is having economically at the moment and your sense of whether we should be encouraging those problems or alleviating them.Watch now
