In a letter to Democrats on Saturday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said the coming week will be a “time of intensity,” as party “leadership” (for lack of a better word) intends to take action on 3 major pieces of spending legislation over the days ahead.
“This week, we must pass a Continuing Resolution, Build Back Better Act and the BIF,” Pelosi wrote in a Dear Colleague letter Saturday.
Pelosi wrote that September 30 “is a date fraught with meaning.” That’s the day that the government’s fiscal year ends and they run out of money. God forbid that happens because how else would they use our money to subvert our country and push for a Marxist utopia? So Pelosi wants a continuing resolution passed.
September 30 is also the day that surface transportation programs are expected to expire and they need to keep those going so they can push their Marxist programs and central planning onto state and local communities by using the money and specifically chosen projects.
Pelosi said that on top of that, the House must ram through the Senate-approved $1.2 trillion infrastructure package and the $3.5 trillion social programs spending package, which is the life’s blood of Joe Biden’s “Destroying America Quicker” agenda.
How much do you want to bet that Pelosi wants to rush these spending packages through so that the Republicans will have no time to find the amnesty provision the Democrats are going to sneak into one of them by claiming they have a deadline of September 30 so they don’t have time to debate the bills?
“The next few days will be a time of intensity,” Pelosi wrote to House Democrats. “We must pass the BIF to avoid the expiration of the surface transportation funding on September 30. And we must stay on schedule to pass the reconciliation bill so that we can Build Back Better.” What a load of horse hockey.
Pelosi sent the letter as the House Buget Committee was working on its markup of the $3.5 trillion “vote for Democrats” spending package.
Democrats are dying to pass the plan, because they are going to use it explicitly to shore up votes from their usual support groups by spending more on Medicare, education, public housing and a bunch of other Democrat-specific priorities. In other words, if you are a Republican voter, screw you. And the reprobates are going to push this through the reconciliation process so that it can’t be stopped in the Senate with a filibuster.
However, it’s not all peaches and cream on the left side of the House. Democrat leaders have run into trouble keeping the ranks of their House caucus united while they try to get their partisan spending package through on the planned vote for the smaller package over infrastructure set for a vote on Monday, while the radical progressives are threatening to not support that bill unless the much larger spending package they support gets voted on first. The problem they face is knowing that once moderate Democrats vote on the smaller package, they might not support the toys-in-the-attic, bat-guano crazy much larger big they know will go through reconciliation. In other words, as per usual, the progressives (Americna form of Marxists) want to try to fool their opposition into passing something they don’t want to, in this case, the opposition being the non radical lunatic moderates.
It’s not yet known if the bipartisan infrastructure package will be able to pass with enough votes on Monday since House Republican leaders have asked GOP members to not vote for it in opposition to the outrageous larger spending bill that has been pushed through for a vote by the Democrats.
The Democrats want to spend nearly $5 trillion between just these two spending packages after already spending trillions on COVID over the last year. This is money that we simply don’t have. I don’t think our economy can handle this much money being thrust into it. We are already seeing inflation and that may go hog wild crazy after this much of an infusion of money into the economy in such a short amount of time. The government is paying people to not work and so the demand for products will not be met and that means higher prices for the remaining products being sold until they run out. The Democrats could crash our economic system. And I am certain they already have a way to blame it on Trump.
The media fail to tell you that there is a war going on in the Democratic Party between the moderates and the lunatic fringe progressives. If the smaller bill, the so-called bipartisan bill, fails, it will cause the moderates to not support the MOAB $3.5 trillion spending bill, as they will tank it out of spite. Republicans should just sit back and watch with a bucket of popcorn as the Democratic Party implodes.
