President Joe Biden-13 States Sue President Biden Over Terrible American Rescue Plan's Tax Provision-ss-Featured

A group of 13 states is suing President Joe Biden’s administration for the American Rescue Plan’s tax provision. The said policy prohibited states from cutting taxes if they received relief funds.

Thirteen states formed a coalition led by West Virginia’s Attorney General Patrick Morrisey. The coalition then pursued legal action against the Biden administration over the rescue plan’s “unconstitutional” tax provision.  The group filed a federal lawsuit against the administration on Wednesday evening at the US District Court for the Northern District of Alabama.

In a statement, Morrisey said the federal government has never attempted a “complete take over of state finances” before.

His statement also noted that the Constitution envisioned the states to be co-sovereign. He then said it did not call for a federal government that makes state lawmaking bodies give up one of their core functions in exchange for funding that’s just around a quarter of their annual general budgets.

According to the lawsuit, the said tax provision is one of the country’s “most egregious power grabs” in history. It also said that the Tenth Amendment prevents the federal government from overreaching in its authority, which is what the Biden Administration did with this provision.

In mid-March, 21 states threatened to pursue legal action against the president if he doesn’t change the policy.

    Some things to think about!
    I never dreamed that I would have to face the prospect of not living in the United States of America, at least not the one I have known all my life. I have never wished to live anywhere else. This is my home and I was privileged to be born here.

    But today I woke up and as I had my morning coffee, I realized that everything is about to change. No matter how I vote, no matter what I say, something evil has invaded our nation, and our lives are never going to be the same. I look at people I have known all my life–some are so hate-filled that they agree with opinions they would never express as their own. I think that I may well have entered the Twilight Zone. We have become a nation that has lost its collective mind!

    You can’t justify this insanity:

    • If a guy pretends to be a woman, you are required to pretend with him.

    • Somehow it’s un-American for the census to count how many Americans are in America.

    • Russians influencing our elections are bad, but illegals voting in our elections are good.

    • It was cool for Joe Biden to “blackmail” the President of Ukraine, but it’s an impeachable offense if Donald Trump inquires about it.

    • Twenty is too young to drink a beer, but eighteen is old enough to vote.

    • People who have never owned slaves should pay slavery reparations to people who have never been slaves.

    • People who have never been to college should pay the debts of college students who took out huge loans for their degrees.

    • Immigrants with tuberculosis and polio are welcome, but you’d better be able to prove your dog is vaccinated.

    • Irish doctors and German engineers who want to immigrate to the US must go through a rigorous vetting process, but any illiterate gang-bangers who jump the southern fence are welcome.

    • $5 billion for border security is too expensive, but $1.5 trillion for “free” health care is not.

    • If you cheat to get into college you go to prison, but if you cheat to get into the country you go to college for free.

    • People who say there is no such thing as gender are demanding a female President.

    • We see other countries going Socialist and collapsing, but it seems like a great plan to us.

    • Some people are held responsible for things that happened before they were born, and other people are not held responsible for what they are doing right now.

    • Criminals are caught-and-released to hurt more people, but stopping them is bad because it’s a violation of THEIR rights.

    • And pointing out all this hypocrisy somehow makes us “racists”?!

    Nothing makes sense anymore – no values, no morals, and no civility. People are dying of a Chinese virus, but it’s racist to refer to it as Chinese even though it began in China. We are clearly living in an upside down world where right is wrong and wrong is right, where moral is immoral and immoral is moral, where good is evil and evil is good, where killing murderers is wrong but killing unborn babies is AOK!
    Wake up America, the great unsinkable ship Titanic America has hit an iceberg, is taking on water, and is sinking fast. Speak up! NOW!
