Biden Tries To Pull A Fast One

The liberal media is lauding a compromise deal in the Senate to provide $1.4 trillion to rebuild the nation’s infrastructure. It is a legislative effort that has bipartisan support and is a long time in coming. It would address a plethora of programs to revitalize the nation’s crumbling system of roads, bridges, tunnels, rail and broadband.

It sounded great, and all the politicians seemed to be on board. But nothing is easy in Washington because of the deep-seeded venom that exists between Democrats and Republicans. So what is so wrong with all the liberal back-slapping over the past 48 hours?

After flaunting a great legislative breakthrough, the president effectively threw cold water on the deal. After all the hard work by senators, he said he would not sign the bill unless Congress approves an additional $4 trillion economic program that would fund healthcare, childcare, higher education access and climate change programs.

It was a brazen move to slam unaffordable entitlements down the throats of Americans. It actually looked like Biden was trying to pull a fast one on his opponents and the public. Republicans immediately called out the president and his sycophants in Congress.

The trillions in this proposed package would supposedly be funded by what else- a change in the tax code for the super rich and multinational corporations. The problem is that Republicans are not going to vote yea on the second half of the overall proposal. So Biden and the federal government have made no progress.

To make matters worse, Democrats are threatening to eliminate the filibuster in the Senate to facilitate their ultra radical agenda. This would enable passage of any law with a majority in the Senate. The problem is that two Democrats senators, Manchin and Sinema, have said they would not vote for costly economic programs without participation of Republicans. So, the legislation is doomed.

 The whole dog and pony show on Thursday was a farce. Nothing is going to happen unless Biden signs an infrastructure bill without getting his $4 trillion spending program approved.

The nasty rhetoric emanating from Democrats is going to result in a do-nothing congressional session. The Democrats are in a bind because they really don’t have a majority in the Senate without the aforementioned rogue Democratic senators. Note: Softball Politics has proposed Sen. Manchin change parties and vote with Republicans. Also, the senator would be in a position to possibly run for president.
