The Democrats have showed their hand and exposed their weaknesses this week when an obvious lack of unity on Biden’s massive $3.5 trillion spending package caused the party to crumble.
Former President Donald Trump on Thursday predicted that Republicans in Congress would benefit greatly if Democrats push through their exorbitant social-spending legislation.

Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer continue to delay a vote on the “bipartisan” $1.2 trillion infrastructure bill, which was scheduled on Thursday. Progressive Democrats have vowed to sabotage the bill if a much large, much more radical $3.5 trillion reconciliation package isn’t attacked to it. Meanwhile, budget experts have issued multiple warnings that the price tag on Biden’s $3.5 trillion bill is in fact much higher and will result in permanent damage to America’s already-wavering economy.
As a result, House Minority Leader Rep. Kevin McCarthy has begun whipping votes against the initial $1.2 trillion package.
Rep. Tim Burchett, a Republican, revealed that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi would pull the infrastructure bill from the docket because it didn’t have enough votes to pass. Her party cannot afford another defeat.
On Monday, Trump said Republicans had the power to stop the Democrats’ massive progressive agenda.
“The Republicans in the Senate have the cards…” Trump began.

Sens. Joe Manchin and Kyrsten Sinema, two moderate Democrats who hold Biden’s entire political future in their hands, have said repeatedly they were opposing the $3.5 trillion reconciliation spending bill.
Burchett said he thinks the House Democrats eventually will fold, but they’ll use Manchin and Sinema as fodder in their reelection bids.
“They’ll end up folding, most of them will, and then they’ll talk bad about Manchin and Sinema behind their backs and run for reelection on that.”
“Generally, politicians are pretty gutless people, I’ve found, and they won’t do what’s right. They’ll just do what’s best for them to get reelected, and they don’t give a damn about the United States of America, unfortunately.”
Truer, more honest words have never been spoken about the swamp monsters currently invading Washington D.C.
One can only hope Republicans are able to stave off left-wing radical spending long enough for braver, America First candidates to reach the nation’s Capitol and end Democrat rule for good.
