In the history of mankind, many republics have risen, have flourished for a less or greater time, and then have fallen because their citizens lost the power of governing themselves and thereby of governing their state. TR


Republicans about to give Biden a huge political victory

According to The Hill:

“Senate Republicans are about to hand President Biden a huge political victory by voting for a historic $1 trillion infrastructure package that the president can then tout as fulfilling a campaign pledge to restore bipartisanship in Washington.

“GOP senators and aides predict as many as 20 Republicans — twice the number needed to avoid a filibuster — could vote for the legislation, which would provide the most funding in decades for roads, airports, railroads, drinking water and other priorities . . .

“Republican lawmakers insisted at the start of the debate that the entire package be paid for with various offsets. But as the massive bill nears the finish line, GOP senators say they are willing to support it, even if the Congressional Budget Office says it will add to the federal deficit.

“Senate Republicans acknowledge the legislation is a political win for Biden, though they also see it as a win for themselves. They say it will give GOP senators something to campaign on for the 2022 midterm elections, when Republicans are looking to win back the Senate majority.

“Senate Republican Whip John Thune (S.D.) said the need to deliver for constituents outweighs the more abstract political calculations over how much the bill might help Biden.”

  1. Let’s all say it together: Republicans are weak kneed, yellow bellied, lily livered turncoats.

    John Thune needs to be voted out in South Dakota. He’s a typical Republican swamp creature who would rather support Democrats than Trump’s pro-America agenda just because Trump is “mean.”

  2. If the Republicans thing they need this legislation to have “something to campaign on” for 2022, they’ve had their heads in the sand since January when the evil Biden regime took over.

    Congressional Republicans — weak, timid and worthless, as usual.

  3. If this was truly an infrastructure bill I’d have no problem. Country needs infrastructure repair. However, there isn’t such a thing as “shovel ready” infrastructure work. Takes 5 years to get planning approved, and then contract work begins, and then we start to see repairs done when repairs are out of date.

    If this wasn’t such a great country I’d care little about its direction.

  4. Agree with the comments above!!!

    Hoping after the 20 defect to the other side, their chances to be re-elected are nil. This makes my blood boil – turn coats for sure.
