Republicans are raising the alarm about the billions of dollars in taxpayer money that Democrat President Joe Biden is pumping into his so-called “Climate Corps.”
House Republican has responded to Biden’s $30 billion green agenda plan by introducing a bill that targets the scheme.
If Biden’s initiative succeeds, the Climate Corps will train 20,000 young people “for jobs in the clean energy economy,” according to the White House.
These jobs will be focused on “advancing environmental justice, deploying clean energy, implementing energy-efficient technologies, and tackling climate change.”
However, Republicans have slammed Biden’s initiative as an attempt to deploy a “climate army.”
Rep. Bob Good (R-VA) introduced a bill to tackle Biden’s plan called the “No American Climate Corps Act.”
Good warns that the “Climate Corps” is just another example of the Biden administration “furthering its radical anti-American energy agenda.”
In a statement, Good said:
“Americans are struggling to make ends meet because of Bidenomics.
“Instead of recognizing that family budgets are already stretched thin by sky-high energy prices, President Biden is focused on deploying a climate army that will increase regulatory burdens on business owners and drive inflation across the economy even higher.”
Good is not alone, however.
Many have suggested that Biden’s “climate army” is an attempt to intimidate Americans into going along with his fallacious policies.
According to a one-pager explaining Good’s legislation, the bill “prohibits any federal funds from being used for the purposes of creating an American Climate Corps or a similar program.”
Biden announced his Climate Corps program on September 20, as Slay News reported.
The president launched the effort by signing an order after a group of left-wing politicians urged him to establish the program through executive action.
Democrat and left-wing senators and representatives conveniently joined forces to pressure Biden to sign the executive order.
The effort was led by Sen. Ed Markey (D-MA) who was joined by Senators:
- Ron Wyden (D-OR)
- Bernie Sanders (I-VT)
- Martin Heinrich (D-NM)
In the House, the effort was led by Reps.
- Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY)
- Judy Chu (D-CA)
- Joe Neguse (D-CO)
They led 44 of their colleagues in the effort.
Conservatives in Congress, meanwhile, say they believe initiatives like this inflict hyperinflation, increase consumer costs, and deplete American energy capacity.
Good’s one-pager explains the initiative as an “attempt to mimic” President Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s New Deal.
Roosevelt’s effort expanded the government in the 1930s during the Great Depression.
“President Biden and Democrats’ continued climate change-fueled war on American energy independence will cost over $500 billion in climate spending with the passage of bills like the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act, the CHIPS and Science Act, and the Inflation Acceleration Act,” Good’s one-pager warns.
