Mitch McConnel, the Senate Minority Leader of the Republican party demonstrated on Tuesday that he doesn’t have what it takes to combat the radical Democrat agenda that’s tearing the country apart.
He was complicit in handing Democrat President Joe Biden his much treasured $1.2 trillion infrastructure plan, being one of 19 total RINOs to vote with the opposing party and furthering Biden’s efforts to reshape the American economy. While he may imagine that this was a bipartisan victory, in truth, Republicans got nothing from this deal with the devil.
The Democrat sponsored infrastructure deal includes no border wall, an urgently needed piece of, well… infrastructure that would have amounted to a rounding error amongst the many costly items in Biden’s spending spree, and at a point where a secure border should be one of the most pressing issues of the administration.
Senator Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) had proposed to ament the bill with $1 billion in border wall construction, but McConnell didn’t allow it to come to a vote.
Additionally, as the U.S. faces rising oil prices and allows Russia to enrich itself on sales to Europe, Republicans failed to fit the Keystone XL pipeline into the bill, instead allowing the project to lie in the dirt rather than provide tens of thousands of jobs and allow the U.S. to purchase oil from an ally.
Biden says there’s no need for the oil pipeline, because electric vehicles are just around the corner, just as he promised in 2009 when he used stimulus money to bring the Fisker’s electric car factory to Delaware, and after blowing hundreds of millions of dollars, zero cars were produced and the company floundered.
The infrastructure bill that the RINOs did help pass is instead crammed full of liberal pie-in-the-sky wish list items. One of these is the “digital equity” provision which allows Biden to distribute taxpayer dollars on racial grounds, even despite being shot down in the courts for doing so with coronavirus relief money.
The bill could perhaps be defended if it helped the American economy, but instead independent reviews show that the bill will make “no significant impact” over the next 30 years.
Additionally, even though it was promised that the bill would be entirely payed for, the Congressional Budget Office was made to confess that $256 billion would be added to the deficit on top of mounting inflation, all for no tangible benefit.
