Hold On To Your Wallet: Biden & The Dems Push Plan That Will Cause Inflation To Go Even Higher
The Democrats are gluttons for punishment.
Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) did Democrats a favor in 2021 when he and Senator Senima (D-Arz) killed Biden’s $2 trillion Build Back Better bill. Since the bill was killed in December of last year inflation has risen by 8.5% and we could only imagine what it would be if the government kept printing money to pass Biden’s agenda.
Data highlighting Joe Biden’s terrible approval numbers highlight that Americans understand rabid government spending is driving inflation but that’s not stopping the Democrats. White House Chief of Staff Ron Klain is looking to revisit the bill except for this time they are going to start hiding it in a reconciliation bill that they feel could pass in the Senate without votes from the GOP.
“We have to come back and figure out what formula works with the 50 to get it passed in the Senate,” Klain said during an NBC podcast.
“We’d like to move a reconciliation bill and go as far as we can, get as much done as we can with 50 votes,” Schumer told reporters.
The White House is being careful not to talk about or publicly criticize Democratic senators whose votes they’ll ultimately need. Manchin publicly fumed late last year and appeared to accuse White House staff of leaking information during several rounds of Build Back Better negotiations, saying that they “put some things out that were absolutely inexcusable.”
Neither Senate Democratic leadership nor the White House have set a firm deadline for when they would want to get a revived deal. But some Democratic senators have floated Memorial Day, or at the latest mid-summer, before they pull the plug for good.
However, there is some indication that Sinema or Manchin aren’t going to go along with the ruse.
“What I can’t tell you is if negotiations will start again,” Senator Krysten Sinema said, “I’ll be the same person in negotiations if they start again that I was in negotiations last year.”
