Just say no: House GOP exposes 'woke' items in Biden's $7.3 trillion budget --Biden's budget includes $3 billion to 'advance gender equity and equality worldwide' | 12 March 2024 | House Republicans are furious over "woke" programs Joe Biden wants to fund in his $7.3 trillion budget request. Biden released his 188-page proposal to fund the federal government on Monday. It lays out roughly $5 trillion in tax increases overall, which the White House said would be split evenly between corporations and the top 2% of earners. A new memo by House Budget Committee Chairman Jodey Arrington, R-Texas, highlighted billions aimed at green energy initiatives and equity programs. Meanwhile, the U.S. national debt is currently just under $34.5 trillion, according to the latest data. The document pointed to $3 billion for the State Department to "advance gender equity and equality worldwide," as well as $1.5 billion for the Transportation Security Administration's "pay equity initiative."
