Democrats Panicking Biden's Radical Agenda Is Failing: 'We Better Have a Plan B'
Dems scrambling to pass the proposed $3.5 trillion reconciliation package.
House Democrats are getting more worried that Joe Biden's radical agenda is failing in the legislative branch of government.
Dems are now scrambling for ways to pass the proposed $3.5 trillion reconciliation package.
Rep. Emanuel Cleaver (D-MO) told Politico:
“If any member of Congress is not concerned that this could fall apart, they need treatment."
Sen. Mazie Hirono (D-HI) said the party is split over the massive tax and spending bill; she hopes Biden has a plan B.
“I wish that we could all be more on the same page, in terms of timing, of the need to push the [American Families Plan],” Hirono said.
“I’m hopeful we are going to have a meeting of the minds and not wait until next year… we better have a Plan B,” she added.
Rep. Dean Phillips (D-MN) said Democrats are now lost in complicated congressional procedures, adding one knows “where this [package] is gonna go.”
Phillips said Democrat leadership is responsible for the mess.
“None of us know where this is gonna go,” Phillips said.
“This is where leadership is made or broken, plain and simple.
"And that’s true of the president, that’s true of speakers, that’s true of majority leaders.”
Rep. Jamaal Bowman (D-NY) told Politico he is “tired” of the bad Democrat leadership.
“I am very tired of it,” said Bowman.
“I don’t think they are making their decisions based on the needs of the American or even the people in their own state.”
Meanwhile, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez D-NY) has almost given up the fight of passing Biden’s agenda.
“There is absolutely a level where it’s not just something is not better than nothing, but something can actually do more harm,” said Ocasio-Cortez about the package.
“That’s why we are holding firm on our line. This isn’t just a flight of fancy.”
The Senate Parliamentarian recently ruled that Democrats could not include a pathway to citizenship for illegal aliens in their massive $3.5 trillion spending bill.
The ruling was reported by the Associated Press on Sunday night and is seen as a significant setback for the Democrats' progressive agenda.
"A preliminary ruling from Senate Parliamentarian Elizabeth MacDonough, obtained by Fox, would bar Democrats from adding immigration provisions to the $3.5 trillion reconciliation bill," Pergram wrote.
"Democrats did not have firm legislative text nor a total price tag for the bill."
Biden’s attempt to pass the $3.5 trillion bill comes as inflation has skyrocketed under his leadership following trillions in spending that has taken place in a mere matter of months with Democrats in control of the federal government.
