The freshly enacted health care and climate package includes spending elements, including funding for an urban forestry program that Herschel Walker, the Republican candidate for the Georgia Senate, deemed superfluous.

Many dollars are going to the trees. Do we not have enough trees in this area? Walker stated, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, during an RJC rally close to Atlanta.

Walker reiterated his attack on Sen. Raphael Warnock, his Democratic opponent, and President Joe Biden in a subsequent tweet on Monday night.
Warnock opponent Herschel Walker bolsters his campaign.

Yes, Walker tweeted, you heard me correctly. Joe Biden and @ReverendWarnock are hiking taxes on people making under $200k to pay for their $1.5 billion investment in urban forestry. Yes, that is something that bothers me.

The measure does not immediately increase taxes on Americans who earn less than $200,000. According to Democrats, families earning less than $400,000 annually will not be impacted, as promised by Biden.

The Joint Committee on Taxation report, which demonstrates that the policies will indirectly harm middle-class and lower-income Americans, has been seized upon by Republican lawmakers. The majority of the corporation tax, according to economists, will be transferred by businesses to employees in the form of lower pay.

Walker’s campaign did not respond to a request for additional clarification, but it appears that the Republican nominee is alluding to a clause in the expansive $700 billion package that allocates $1.5 billion to the US Forest Service for a program to plant and enhance trees and forests in metropolitan areas.

While supporters of the law and environmental organizations have hailed the provision as a gift to cities with relatively modest tree growth, it is merely one of many that Republican candidates like Walker have criticized as unnecessary government spending.

Walker in particular has focused on climate change-related spending and legislation, occasionally speaking incoherently about the subject.

Since we have no control over the atmosphere, China’s bad air decided to float across to our excellent air. China’s dirty air must thus move as it absorbs our good air. It then crosses over to our favorable airspace. At a local GOP gathering last month, Walker stated that we now have to clean that back up.

Republicans in Georgia and across the country are worried about Walker’s race, which is a key worry for the GOP, as a result of his verbal slip-ups. In the past few weeks, the campaign has received a flood of support from seasoned Republican operatives in an effort to right the ship and better position Walker for his November battle with Warnock.
