(FreedomBeacon.com)- Far-left financier George Soros and his Open Society Foundations are pledging some $20 million to kickstart a campaign to generate $100 million that will help President Joe Biden get his radical infrastructure and social welfare plans through Congress.
President Joe Biden is pitching an infrastructure plan that will cost over $2 trillion, which covers everything from roads and bridges to various non-infrastructure-related social programs.
Support from George Soros means a lot. He is the billionaire financier who assisted far-left groups in recruiting activists for the Black Lives Matter riots seen throughout 2020. Support from him will allow Biden to roll out a campaign convincing members of Congress to get behind his plan, which can only pass through the “Reconciliation” process in Congress if Republicans don’t get on board.
Tom Perriello, the executive director of the U.S. branch of Open Society, said that “every initiative proposed by President Biden has broad public support.”
“But we’ve seen popular reforms get demonized before by partisans and special interests, and we are not going to let that happen,” the ultra-partisan, left-wing Open Societies official claimed.
Perriello also disingenuously claimed that “facts don’t always win without some real muscle put behind getting those facts in front of the American people.”
The funding is a push to pitch Biden’s radical infrastructure plan as one that protects the interests of the American people, despite it being funded by dramatic tax increases that are likely to cost American jobs.
Incredibly, however, some far-left members of Congress like Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez don’t think that Biden’s plans go far enough. Instead, Ocasio-Cortez has argued that Biden should spend as much as $10 trillion on everything from the Green New Deal to reparations and a dramatic increase in the federal minimum wage.
Republicans have vowed to fight the proposals as hard as possible, with Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell vowing to vote against the infrastructure plan unless the Democrats work on a bipartisan basis to pass a deal that benefits the American people.
Democrats can expect the Soros money to be provided for grassroots organizing rather than advertising.
