(RoyalPatriot.com )- Republicans in Congress are standing up to Congressional Democrat bullies, revealing this week that there will be little-to-no support from the GOP on a scaled-down infrastructure package if a vote is forced by far-left Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer this week.
Schumer insisted that the Senate will vote on Wednesday to begin debates on the massive “infrastructure” package, but GOP officials said on Monday that Republicans planned to withhold their support and prevent the Senate from achieving the 60 votes they need to trigger debate. The proposed package would see a massive $1.2 trillion spent over eight years on “infrastructure” projects that span beyond roads and bridges and into far-left policy agendas.
Democrats are reportedly growing concerned that Republicans are attempting to run out the clock on the bill, delaying it until the 2022 midterms when the GOP is expected to take back control of the House of Representatives and perhaps even the Senate. Republicans insist, however, that Senator Schumer is purposely trying to rush the process and make it possible to move onto the next “infrastructure” package that is understood to contain $3.5 trillion in allocated funding.
Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell confirmed on Monday that Republicans did not plan on voting to move the infrastructure bill forward until negotiators reached a final agreement on the plan and compile a full legislative text that members of Congress can read.
McConnell told the press that Republicans must see the bill before voting for it…which is an entirely responsible thing to do. Unless you’re Nancy Pelosi, of course, and then all you need to do is vote for the bill to know what’s in it…remember that one?
The Hill reported how one Republican aide said that Senator Schumer’s decision to push a procedural vote this week has “p*ssed people off” and that he is forcing a vote before it’s ready to be done.
Let’s hope the Republicans stand their ground on this one…
