Analysis: Biden Policies Thus Far Will Add $4.8 Trillion (15%) to Nat’l Debt

'The government in Washington is overfed... '

(Ezekiel Loseke, Headline USA) Joe Biden will add $4.8 trillion to the federal debt, according to a Conservative estimate produced by The Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget.

The Federalist reported that this spending ought to be divided into three categories: administrative measures, bipartisan legislation and partisan legislation.

  • Modifications of Obamacare and Medicaid

In the end, Biden will have spent $175 billion by himself.

The Federalist’s second category is bipartisan legislation. These are spending bills passed with a minimum of 10 Republican votes. Bipartisan spending legislation includes:

Finally, there are partisan measures: spending the bicameral majority of Democrats have forced upon the American people. This includes:

In addition to these categories, the interest on the debt is expected to rise $700 billion. Bringing the total, according to CFRB, to $4.8 trillion.

Frighteningly, the CFRB produced a conservative estimate compared to other organizations. For example, Penn-Wharton estimated a higher cost for student loan forgiveness. The CRFB also failed to account for some gimmicks found in the “inflation reduction act,” according to the Federalist.

As Ronald Reagan once said, “The government in Washington is overfed.”
