(FreedomBeacon.com)- On Tuesday, after intimidating and threatening the ten moderate Democrat hold-outs, Speaker Nancy Pelosi was able to shove the monstrous $3.5 trillion faux infrastructure bill over the first hurdle, clearing the way for a vote on the single largest spending bill in history.
The budget resolution vote passed 220 to 212, laying the groundwork for the Democrats to ram the yet-to-be-written “human infrastructure” bill through to a final vote.
The budget resolution was passed using a fast-track process with Democrats attaching it to a rule allowing the $3.5 trillion bill, along with the John Lewis “voting rights” bill and the so-called bipartisan infrastructure bill to be “deemed and passed.” This expedited approach allowed members to avoid taking a record vote on any stand-alone bill.
In her speech praising her underhanded scheme, Pelosi boasted that passing using this rule “paves the way for the Building Back Better plan.”
Apparently she was referring to Biden’s “Build Back Better” slogan.
Pelosi gushed that crippling the American people with onerous spending and taxes during an economic crisis and persistent inflation would “stand for generations alongside the New Deal and the Great Society.”
Pelosi went so far as to claim that if Congress did not pass this expedited scheme it would threaten “the Build Back Better plan, as well as voting rights reform, as well as the bipartisan infrastructure bill.”
Of course passing this threatens the entire country because passing these three bills will add trillions to the national debt and completely undermine the integrity and security of elections.
But that’s a feature, not a bug.
For Pelosi “Build Back Better” isn’t about the country; it’s about the Democrat Party.
The only thing she wants to “build” is permanent Democrat power.
And she doesn’t care how she gets it.
One of the moderate Democrats Pelosi strong-armed to vote for this monstrosity reportedly told the Republican members that the Democrats’ whipping strategy included threatening to target their seats during the redistricting process. One moderate Democrat was told a “no” vote on this rule would result in a relative losing his or her current job in the Biden administration.
But remember, folks. Nancy is doing this “for the people.”
Both the “bipartisan” bill and the absurd $3.5 trillion “infrastructure” bill now go into the reconciliation process with the Senate and are expected to get a final vote in October.
