InfluenceWatch Podcast #316: Federally Funded Everything Leftism

To say the federal government is merely “broke” is a gross understatement; as of recording the US Debt Clock shows the federal debt at over $34.7 trillion with the running annual deficit at nearly $2 trillion. While federal entitlement spending drives the growth in debt, the discretionary decisions of the Biden administration are very much not helping, as a new report from the Heritage Foundation shows. In short, the Biden administration is using a suspiciously expansive reading of the authorities delegating power from Congress to the Executive Branch to pursue “Whole of Government” Everything-Leftism policies at great public expense. Joining us to discuss his report is David Ditch, senior policy analyst at Heritage.
