After much debate and a lengthy delay in passing what the Democrats have been referring to as a “bipartisan infrastructure bill”, the Pelosi camp finally got their $1.2 trillion spending spree pushed through. Although disastrous for the country, as inflation is already at 13+ year highs, Joe Manchin (D-West Virginia), may have saved America from what could have been an even more devastating progressive blow by slamming the brakes on the original $3.5 trillion Bill.
Both Joe Manchin and Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ) originally voted against Party line, derailing the Progressives from pushing through their agenda, as they wanted to further understand exactly what was in the Bill before impulsively voting for something that could end up costing America for generations to come.
All but 13 Republicans opposed the bill calling it “communist” or “socialist” and decried their GOP colleagues who voted with Democrats.
“Republicans who voted for the Democrats’ socialist spending bill are the very reason why Americans don’t trust Congress,” Rep. Andy Biggs, R-Ariz., chairman of the conservative House Freedom Caucus, tweeted.
Rep. Lauren Boebert, R-Colo., called the bill “garbage,” and argued that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi couldn’t get it passed without help from the 13 Republicans. The vote was 228-206, with six Democrats, all progressives, voting against it.
Margorie Taylor Green was also quick to call out the 13 “RINOS” who “handed over their voting cards to Nancy Pelosi to pass Joe Biden’s Communist takeover of America via so-called infrastructure.
Rep. Adam Kinzinger, R-Ill., who was one of the Republicans to side with Democrats, was quick to hit back at Greene for her claim about “communism.”
