Biden stepped on the plank for Socialist Bernie Sanders’ budget
US Senator John Barrasso
CASPER, Wyoming – U.S. Senator John Barrasso (R-Wyo.) Appeared on Fox News Sunday with Chris Wallace to discuss the Democrats’ reckless spending bill and how Americans feel less secure under the Biden administration.
Below are key excerpts from the interview.
What we see is like watching an episode of the Twilight Zone. I thought Joe Biden went to the Hill on Friday to pass the bipartisan infrastructure bill and instead went to the radical wing of his party.
Now you have this great government, socialism, reckless spending bill being used to hold hostage the things the American people want – roads, bridges, highways, all those things.
When this bipartisan bill passed a 50/50 Senate and won 69 votes, it got a lot of momentum on its side. In any normal world, this would have been promulgated by the president. It was two months ago. It was before Afghanistan, when the president lost a lot of political clout.
Now we’re at a point where the president is weak and Bernie Sanders and the far left Democrats are driving the bus and Joe Biden is right there for the ride.
On that $ 3.5 trillion infrastructure proposal that Democrats are focusing on right now with billions of dollars in increased taxes and billions of dollars in increased debt. All Republicans unite against it.
We are a party that wants to grow the economy, the Democrats are a party that wants to grow government. They keep trying to mislead the public by saying it’s free. It’s not free. People are feeling the bite of inflation right now when they are shopping for groceries, buying gas, all of those things.
If this passes, this massive spending and this tax bill, this inflation will get worse.
As a member of the Senate or Congress, you must look at the whole bill and say whether you are for the bill or not.
I want to stress that Democrats don’t talk to Republicans about any of these things. Bernie Sanders said “48 people should be able to cancel two”, but there are actually 100 members of the Senate. It’s 52 against a number of things the Democrats are proposing here. And the content of this bill matters almost as much, if not more, than the cost.
I have received more letters over the past two weeks on one item of this. It’s the matter of giving a whole new army of IRS agents the power to dig into your checking account to examine any check you deposited or wrote for over $ 600. It is an invasion of privacy. All senators have heard of it. It is also included.
When you take a look at the whole bill – which is why Joe Manchin said it was time for a strategic break – it looks like there could be a long hiatus on both the project. of law on real infrastructure and on this bill on major expenditure.
Joe Biden presented himself as a centrist and competent. We see that he is neither. People across the country feel less secure with Joe Biden as president. Their paychecks are less secure because of inflation. When you look at the hundreds of thousands of people who arrive illegally in the country every month, they feel less safe. When the generals testify, as they did, that we are less immune to terrorism.
Joe Biden has now walked the plank for Socialist Bernie Sanders’ budget. He’s a man overboard and he can’t swim. It flows.
