You’d think Biden would be happy after Congress passed his tax-and-spend bill over the Summer. That bill will cost Americans trillions–and go to help globalists and “green” advocates.
But Biden still demands more tax dollars to push his agenda. Congress is currently scrambling to get a spending bill passed to keep the government open.
Missing from this stop-gap are a few of Biden’s pet projects.
From The Hill:
A White House request for emergency funding to support coronavirus and monkeypox response efforts is missing from the recent must-pass spending bill rolled out by Senate Democrats after staunch GOP opposition.
The White House pushed for billions in funding to bolster those efforts as part of a short-term funding bill Congress is aiming to pass this week to avert a government shutdown.
What’s included in a bill aimed at funding the government for the next few months? Oh, just more billions thrown away to overseas countries.
Congressional appropriators released a stop-gap bill Monday night that would fund the government through mid-December, specifically earmarking $12.3 billion in aid for Ukraine and $3 billion for Afghan resettlement programs.
Fears mounted that the government would shut down, just weeks before the 2022 midterms.
But, as of right now, Democrats have cobbled together a stop-gap bill that will keep the bloated federal government going until December 16th.
The CR will send $12.5 billion to Ukraine, $3 billion to resettle Afghan refugees in the United States, and $1 billion to help pay energy bills for Democrat voters–I mean, “low income” communities.
No word of Biden’s demand for funding to support COVID–especially after he claimed the pandemic was over.
Biden also wanted money for the monkeypox outbreak, something apparently Democrats don’t care enough about.
Also added to this version of the bill is the deal Manchin betrayed Americans over.
House Democrats have vowed to kill that side deal, so the fate of this bill is in serious question.
If this side deal isn’t removed from the bill, it could go down in flames in the House. Democrat progressives will be responsible for a government shutdown.
- Democrats rushed a funding bill that will send billions overseas.
- The bill does not include demands from Biden for COVID and monkeypox funding.
- If the bill does not pass, the government will shut down in October.
