The elections earlier this month demonstrated that the American people don’t want what the Democrats are selling, but they don’t care.
They are continuing to push their agenda, full steam ahead.
This week, Democrats in the House passed their massive spending bill, even after the CBO warned it would produce a massive deficit.
The New York Post reports:
House Dems pass $2T Biden spending plan despite $367B deficit warning from CBO
House Democrats narrowly passed President Biden’s nearly $2 trillion social spending bill Friday over unified Republican opposition — and despite an official warning that it could add $367 billion to the nation’s deficit.
The 220-213 vote followed months of warring between moderate and progressive wings of the Democratic Party that cut the cost of Biden’s still-mammoth “Build Back Better Act” in half — but still left a bill that some economists project could cost Americans as much as $4 trillion.
Democratic lawmakers cheered and chanted “Build Back Better!” in the chamber after the bill reached the 218-vote threshold needed for passage. Only Rep. Jared Golden (D-Maine) broke ranks to side with the GOP in the closely divided House, where House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) could afford just three Democratic defections and still get the bill passed.
Rep. Kat Cammack (R-Fla.) summed up GOPers’ feelings by referring to the bill as “Build Back Broke” and telling Democrats “good luck in the Senate” while announcing the vote of one of her Republican colleagues as a proxy. Cammack’s remark was met with cheers from GOP lawmakers and boos from the other side of the aisle, with one Democrat shouting “You’re an embarrassment!” across the chamber.
Democrats are just doing what they want to do.
Gutsy move to link to the very CBO document that refutes his exact claim.

I’ll hold my breath for all the intrepid media fact checkers to correct Joe Biden’s Big Lie that BBB costs zero.
It actually costs $376 BILLION according to the CBO.
BBB = Biden’s Bankruptcy Behemoth.

Democrats are not going to stop until they are forced out of the majority.
