Letter: The $3.5 trillion bill is welfare

Published: 10/6/2021 10:16:48 AM

Politicians have created a fictitious word calling middle class welfare payments” human infrastructure.”

Let’s be honest with the American people and call the $3.5 trillion bill (the most expensive in American history) what it is: welfare for the middle-class.

We have quality public education in New Hampshire. We need to encourage parents to play a more active role in encouraging our children to be more disciplined in their studies. In their pre school years, we need parents to be the teachers for their pre-school children, not peer group influences.

Free community college is more destructive than helpful. If students have no investment in their education, they will not work as hard as possible, and we will have lower quality professors because we will run out of debt to support this free college promise.

We spent $60 billion last year in our Department of Education and yet, in New Hampshire, we are graduating less than 50% of our students proficient in math and science. We do not need more money.

We need to have our children learn STEM, not social justice. Some people do not understand that, returning the corporate tax rate to pre-2017 levels, as it was in the Obama Administration, will incentivize our multi-national corporations to build plants overseas and hire foreign employees. This will lead to unemployment and is in contradiction to Biden saying he is going to bring back the supply chain to America.
