“Our Revolution” bragged in a mass email Saturday that Joe Biden used their “language” in an executive order related ostensibly to protecting American jobs referred to as the “Build Back Better Recovery Plan”.
The Executive Order that uses “Our Revolution’s language” is a launch-pad for yet more massive government spending in the area of infrastructure and so-called clean energy, rewarding cherry-picked businesses with “hundreds of billions of dollars.” According to a CNBC article, Biden’s “Build back better” initiative will cost 7.3 trillion dollars.
While it is already federal law for the federal government to use American-made products, President Donald Trump built upon the legislation from 1933 with several executive orders through his “Buy American, Hire American” initiative. Even CNN acknowledged in 2019 that Trump’s proposals led to “the best annual net gain [of American manufacturing jobs] since 1997”. One of the provisions in President Trump’s executive orders was to conduct a study determining why exemptions from the 1933 law were granted. The study determined that sometimes, the materials needed were not adequately made in America, were overly expensive, and mysteriously, sometimes buying American products was deemed “inconsistent with the public interest…”
Biden does not seem to have any worries about addressing the the findings of the study, instead plowing forward with his version of the massive spending executive order.
Build Back Better
Interestingly, the phrase “Build back better” was referenced in June 2020 in an article posted at the United Nations website. “[C]an the private sector ‘build back better’ to reorder the post-pandemic world…” the author asked.
An astute Twitter user compiled globalist-types using the phrase:
Our Revolution is a front group for America’s largest Marxist group, the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA). RAIR Foundation USA has previously reported on how top representatives from Our Revolution and DSA attended a meeting with European communist and socialist groups in April, 2019 to build an international “progressive” alliance.
“Our Revolution members led the working-class revolt that directly led to the defeat of Donald Trump in the Midwest. It’s never been more clear that our organizing works,” the email dated January 30, 2021 gushes, “…we peeled off enough votes from his key demographics to win in the Midwest and boot the traitor from office,” they continue.
The goal for socialists is to take control of industry. Watch this January 25th video with that in mind. While some proposals seem reasonable, such as a $15 minimum wage, the result of intervention into free markets inevitably hurts poor people the most. Participants also promote destroying the filibuster.

The Failed American Recovery and Reinvestment Act
In February, 2009, then-President Obama signed the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA), which at the time was described as “an unprecedented action to stimulate the economy.” During the Obama administration, “…fully 71 percent of the Obama Energy Department’s grants and loans went to ‘individuals who were bundlers, members of Obama’s National Finance Committee, or large donors to the Democratic Party.'”
Joe Biden touted the massive infusion of taxpayer money into Obama’s pet projects and cronies and appears to be on track to do it all over again, begging the question: What did the ARRA actually accomplish? How many more trillions of dollars will be redistributed to leftist cronies before America buckles under the strain?
