Trout Creek resident opposes federal money

When the FEDS say “Jump”, Montana Government says “How High”

Yes, thanks to the Biden Administration’s American Rescue Plan Act our Montana legislators passed HB632 enabling billions of dollars to funnel into our state.

We are told they had to vote YES or lose the money. So let’s get this straight. We The People must sacrifice the COVID manipulations of “control” and “compliance” in exchange for numerous better ways of life in Montana!

Let’s examine the appropriated funds for these much-needed millions upon millions of improvement dollars as cited in HB632: $462,689,925 for water and sewer infrastructure projects; $275,000,000 for communications; $150,000,000 for economic transformation, stabilization and workforce development; $213,859,768 for housing programs; $365,595,000 for public health and human services; $391,260,656 for education. No worries, grants associated with many of these appropriations are just taxpayer funded money to begin with.

There’s even $944,721 allocated to the judicial branch to support court operations impacted by COVID19.

Are you feeling liberated in Montana by the pandemic-caused $1.8 billion funding? Are you content to be a hostage of the American Rescue Plan Act?

Go back to your corner, sit down and shut up.
