WASHINGTON — Media outlets are reporting that President Joe Biden has gone to Congress Thursday morning in an attempt to push for a vote on his now $1.75 trillion spending plan. The plan has dropped in the total amount due to continued arguments between the Democrats. While the spending plan is concerning in itself, it’s even more concerning that Biden is pushing for a vote and the bill is not even written!
The Associated Press has their article talking about Biden being at the Capitol to unite Democrats. They share how Biden is concerned that the actions of the next 2 weeks will dictate the view of congressional Democrats and the Biden presidency. The real news is buried in the article.
Many paragraphs down one member of Congress was quoted in saying that they have yet to see the text of a bill that they are being asked to vote on. They share that there is a framework of the bill but that there are a lot of confused congressional representatives because there is no text to read.
It is surprising that Democrats would even say they wanted to read the text of a bill before voting. Everyone remembers how Speaker Nancy Pelosi famously said that you must pass it in order to read it.
It seems that the Democrats are up to that game yet again, as Biden is pushing for a vote this week on the spending plan. He wants a plan in place as he leaves Congress on Thursday to head to Europe.
Nancy Pelosi wants to hold a vote this week on the package. All indications are that if an agreement is reached, she could try and hold that vote on Friday. Yes, just 24 hours after Biden leaves, they expect to be able to hold a vote on a legislation that has yet to be drafted and reviewed.
This is not an example of Congress representing the people as they are supposed to do. This is an example of Democrats in Congress forcing their will on the people.
Americans will have no chance to review the legislation, understand what is in it, or how it will affect them. Congress, the ones creating the law, will find themselves once again voting on a bill that they have not read and evaluated.
The bill will be more wasteful spending as we have become accustomed to with the Democrats. There’s no doubt that the bill will be laden with ridiculous measures.
Even still, the American people and their representatives deserve the opportunity to see and hear what is in the bill. Biden and the Democrats say otherwise.
