Donald Trump is warning that the massive infrastructure bill is nothing more than the beginning of the Green New Deal.
Some Republicans have signed on to support it, which is unbelievable.
This will not be good for the country.
Trump: Infrastructure Bill ‘Beginning of the Green New Deal’
Former President Donald Trump warned against the bipartisan infrastructure deal Sunday, calling it the “beginning of the Green New Deal.”
The bill is currently in the Senate and is expected to pass this week after lawmakers advanced the bill Saturday, setting it up for final passage.
Trump said in a statement that “[T]his is not an infrastructure bill, this is the beginning of the Green New Deal. The bill I proposed, which Mitch McConnell couldn’t do anything with, was pure infrastructure. I want what is best for America, not what’s best for the Communist Democrat Party. This will be a big victory for the Democrats and will be used against Republicans in the upcoming elections. Schumer is using the threat of ‘we can do it the hard way or do it the easy way’ and keeping people in town. McConnell never did that on a real infrastructure bill. Hopefully the House will be much stronger than the Senate.”
Here’s the really bad news. This could actually pass.
Biden’s infrastructure bill on cruise control to Senate passage
President Joe Biden’s bipartisan infrastructure deal cleared its final serious Senate hurdle Sunday night, putting the legislation on a glide path to passage as soon as late Monday.
In a 68-29 vote, the Senate closed down debate on a bill negotiated by a bipartisan group of 10 senators that spends $550 billion in new money on the nation’s physical infrastructure. Sunday’s vote came after senators spent the weekend haggling over amendments and time agreements to consider them.
Final passage of the legislation is expected late Monday night, or the wee hours of Tuesday at the latest, unless a deal is reached among all 100 senators to speed it up. A 50-hour budget debate and an unlimited “vote-a-rama” on nonbinding but politically symbolic topics will follow immediately after.
Don’t be surprised on Tuesday if it is announced that they passed it.
How are we going to make it to 2022?
