Multiple news outlets reported that,
after the House passed the $1.7 trillion omnibus bill last Friday, the bill was
flown to St. Croix for Biden’s signature. Flown.
Over 1,000 miles. On a jet aircraft. To St. Croix in the Virgin Islands, where President
Biden is ringing in the new year at the home of a wealthy donor. The
bill had to be signed by December 30th, and Biden wasn’t about to
leave the Virgin Islands, so the White House had to fly it
down to him on the taxpayer’s dime.
Ironically, the bill,
humorously called the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA), also professes to address
“climate change,” so sending it on a special flight to the Caribbean is the
heighth of hypocrisy. It is akin to signing a bill intended to curb promiscuity
while partaking of a massive orgy or signing a temperance bill while doing
shots at a nightclub.
But hypocrisy is a hallmark
Sincerity is not.
