Franklin Graham: Infrastructure Spending Is “Socialism”

Posted yesterday to Franklin Graham’s Facebook page:

As President Biden was giving his speech last night, I couldn’t help but think that the swamp has won. When President Trump came into office, he said he was going to drain the swamp. Well, sadly, it looks like the swamp rules.

In the first two years of the Trump Administration, we had the strongest economy this country has had in more than 50 years. President Biden and the Democrats are proposing a once-in-a-lifetime spending frenzy to rebuild our country.

I’ve flown from coast to coast and have driven from coast to coast, and I wasn’t aware that America needed rebuilding. Unfortunately, most of our representatives in Congress will probably go along with it, and this kind of spending will eventually be devastating for our economy and our nation.

If you want America to prosper, the best thing is for the government to stay out of the way. What we are witnessing firsthand is the onset of socialism, where those in leadership want to teach Americans to look to the government to meet all of their needs.

It just doesn’t work that way. This great nation was built on hard work and sacrifice—and most importantly, by the grace and blessing of Almighty God. We need to look at Him for help, not to the government. Pray for our nation and our leaders.
