The Biden administration has tried to get away with doing whatever it wants. But that time is over.
Because Congress has introduced a game-changing bill that hits Biden where it hurts most.
A major way that the radicals on the Left have pushed their propaganda is through institutions to bring their extreme ideas everywhere.
One of the ways that do this is through the United States Agency for International Development (USAID).
Executive abuse of federal agencies to waste taxpayer money? Color us surprised.
At the expense of the American taxpayer, Democrat administrations like the Biden admin or the Obama admin can use the USAID to bring “woke” ideas internationally and drum up international support for their agendas.
Well U.S. House Republicans have had enough of this abuse of American tax dollars.
Concerned that USAID is utilizing taxpayer funds to preach “wokeism” overseas, Republican Representative Matt Gaetz (FL) presented a bill to eliminate USAID on Tuesday.
According to a report from the Heritage Foundation published last year, which Gaetz referenced in a news release, the agency is spending American tax dollars on “leftist activism” abroad. The measure would effectively shut down the agency’s operations.
According to Gaetz’s news release, “American taxpayer dollars are being wasted to fund radical leftist propaganda in foreign countries.”
“We will not accept its force-feeding abroad under Old Glory, and neither will the American people tolerate government-funded degeneracy at home.”
“USAID does not serve a meaningful purpose,” he continued.
The law would also “rescind the unobligated funds made available for the agency and transfer all other assets or liabilities to the Secretary of State,” as stated in the news release.
Reps. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA), Andy Biggs (R-AZ), Eli Crane (R-AZ), and Anna Paulina Luna (R-FL) are all on board as cosponsors of the bill, which criticizes USAID for spreading what they call “leftist ideology.”
According to the law, the agency has used tax dollars to fund grants for various leftist causes, including $850,000 for “the rights of gender diverse people” in Bangladesh, a $1 million grant for ”LGBTI human rights advocacy in Asia,” and a $370,000 grant for ”the human rights of LGBTI people in Armenian society.
The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation announced their intention to invest up to $50 million to advance “digital gender equality” in Africa and elsewhere in April.
According to a research by the Heritage Foundation, the Biden administration “weaponizes” foreign aid by supporting and spreading “climate alarmism,” gender ideology, and access to abortion.
On Tuesday, Gaetz tweeted that the plan was an excellent “way to cut spending.”
