( – The House Budget Committee chairman isn’t thrilled about the programs that President Biden wants to have included in his $7.3 trillion budget request, according to Fox News.

The 188-page request was released by Biden on Monday, March 11. His proposal aims to provide funding for the federal government, and it includes around $5 trillion in tax increases. These would be split between the top 2% of earners and corporations. 

House Budget Committee Chairman Jodey Arrington, R-Texas, mentioned a new memo that under this plan, billions of dollars would be directed to equity and green energy programs and initiatives. 

Data has shown that the U.S. national debt is just under $34.5 trillion right now, while the federal budget deficit has reached $531 billion, as reported by Fox News. The document also highlighted how the State Department would receive $3 billion under the proposal to “advance gender equity and equality worldwide.” An additional $1.5 billion would be given to the “pay equity initiative” of the Transportation Security Administration. 

Biden is also pushing for $11 billion to go to the Department of Interior, and that those funds should be used for the preservation of “cultures and history across America.”

An additional $8 billion would be given to Biden’s American Climate Corps, which is looking to hire 50,000 new staffers before 2031. These staffers would be focused on mobilizing a new generation of climate resilience workers. 

Arrington further pointed out in his memo that another $10.6 billion would be used for the Department of Energy for several development and deployment programs of renewable or clean energy. 

Arrington was quoted by Fox News saying that based on Biden’s proposed budget, it’s obvious he cares about a “bigger, more radical” government more than the “freedom, safety, and economic security” of US citizens.
