In either a random act of honesty, or he forgot to take his meds, Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) admitted that Democrats walked away from a coronavirus bill that the Republicans had put on the table.
On Monday, Sanders made the comments during an appearance on Very Jake Tapper’s CNN left-wing activist show. He also said he is against any compromise bill that Democrats have been signaling they would approve.
“Well, you talked about that $1.8 trillion bill that the White House, Steve Mnuchin, the Treasury Secretary, was working on with the House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) um, the Democrats walked away from that bill…” Tapper said.
“That’s right!” Sanders burst out in interruption.
“Because they wanted $2.2 trillion and they walked away from $1.8 trillion. Was that a mistake?” Tapper asked.
“That’s what I’m saying! That’s exactly what I’m saying!” the old socialist war horse said.
“Here was a proposal much much larger, Democrats are, ‘no that’s not good enough,’ and now we’re prepared to accept a proposal that has I think $350 billion dollars in new money?” Sanders continued.
Sanders griped that the bill being haggled on doesn’t do enough of what Democrats and progressives want. He said that the Democrats were going to give the Republicans “everything they want” in the proposed bill.
“I don’t think this is much of a compromise, I think the Republicans have probably gotten 90% of what they want. Our job is to fight and get at least a 50-50 deal,” Sanders said.
Actually, it’s not your job in the US Senate to get all kinds of spending for goodies that you think will help give you power over the very people who are going to pay for it, and that’s wrong, especially when they never ask the American people if they can put them in such high debt that their great great grandchildren will be slaves to government, because this kind of money will never be paid back. In fact, we are very close to having our economy completely crash.
Let’s be honest, President Trump and the Republican-controlled Congress, like Democrats, spent a lot of money. But, the difference is they created policies that helped jumpstart our economy, and it soared to heights no one ever dreamed it could go. We had the strongest economy in world history until the Chines virus came in and allowed Democrat governors and mayors to completely destroy it. The Democrats also want to spend a lot of money, but they are proposing policies that will destroy our economy and cost us millions of jobs to the globalists.
“We gotta do a lot better and negotiate a lot harder,” the kooky Bernster said.
Some people are wondering what the plan is Democrat talk about accepting a bill than the one they previously rejected and walked away from. Nancy Pelosi went ballistic at Manu Raju a CNN Senior Congressional Correspondent (which means he lies) when he asked her to explain why they were taking the compromise bill.
“Let me tell you something!” Pelosi exploded on Raju. “Don’t characterize what we did before as a mistake, as a preface to your question, if you want an answer!” she added. I could swear I heard “AND YOU’RE LITTLE DOG TOO!”
“That was not a mistake!” Pelosi lectured him. “It was a decision, and it’s taking us to a place where we can do the right thing, without other, shall we say, considerations in the legislation that we don’t want.” She’s either pretty good at bullschtein or CNN has become even more complaint to Democrats, as if that’s even possible.
And what would any question be for Nancy Pelosi without somehow, someway, getting an attack in on President Trump? The Speaker said that the big difference between both bills is that Joe Biden would govern according to the guidance of the scientific community like a good little Soviet, while the president is still contesting the results of the election. You’re damn right he is, because the Democrats stole it from him.
