House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) managed to bully and cajole moderate Democrats to support Joe Biden's SPENDING SCAM last month. The radical, unhinged Left is eager to fund the "Commander-in-Chief's" socialist, Big Government agenda through two HUGE bills that will cost America $4.7-trillion.
With lawmakers returning to Capitol Hill next week, the Senate will pick up the SPENDING SCAM baton from the House. A $1.2-trillion, fake, "infrastructure" bill is waiting to be signed into law, but Pelosi has threatened to derail it unless legislation approving $3.5-trillion in Democrat, wish-list spending is passed at the same time.
Through a process called "budget reconciliation," that legislative monstrosity can be passed with ZERO REPUBLICAN SUPPORT. Because Kamala Harris holds the tie-breaking vote in the 50-50 Senate, America could descend into full-blown socialism without a single GOP vote!
Thankfully, two "moderate" Democrat Senators, Joe Manchin of West Virginia and Kyrsten Sinema of Arizona, are pushing back on the $3.5-trillion price tag. This afternoon, Bloomberg News reports:
Senator Joe Manchin is demanding a "strategic pause" in action on President Joe Biden’s economic agenda, potentially imperiling the $3.5 trillion tax and spending package that Democratic leaders plan to push through Congress this fall.
In an opinion article published by The Wall Street Journal today, Manchin wrote "Why I Won't Support Spending Another $3.5 Trillion." He says Congress needs to take that "strategic pause" before burdening America with additional spending and debt:
At $28.7 trillion and growing, the nation's debt has reached record levels. Over the past 18 months, we've spent more than $5 trillion responding to the coronavirus pandemic. Now Democratic congressional leaders propose to pass the largest single spending bill in history with no regard to rising inflation, crippling debt or the inevitability of future crises.
Back in July, Sinema told the Arizona Republic, "I do not support a bill that costs $3.5 trillion." Last week, a spokesman for the senior Senator from Arizona said nothing has changed: "She will not support a budget reconciliation bill that costs $3.5 trillion."

Spearheaded by far-Left Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), the $3.5-trillion bill for "human infrastructure," "election instrastructure," "climate infrastructure," etc. is a HUGE Democrat wish-list of progressive, pork spending. EVERY GOP Senator is against THAT legislation, but there's almost NOTHING they can do to stop it.
Radical Democrats are on record promoting paid leave, childcare, "caregiving," police accountability, election "reform," affordable housing, fighting "climate change" and even packing the Supreme Court as "infrastructure." To progressives, "infrastructure" is whatever they say it is. The Unhinged Left is trying to use trillions of taxpayer dollars to build a super highway to socialism.

P.S. Unlike the first SPENDING SCAM, which needed 60 votes to pass, the $3.5-trillion bill can be passed through "budget reconciliation" and would require only a simple majority vote to become law. Don't let America get pushed off the cliff into full-blown socialism with ZERO REPUBLICAN VOTES! Click here or on the banner below now to sign the "Stop The Spending Scam!" national petition:
