“If any member of Congress is not concerned that this could fall apart, they need treatment,” Rep. Emanuel Cleaver (D-MO) told Politico in reference to the Democrat’s inability to work together.
Sen. Mazie Hirono (D-HI) told the outlet the party is so broken over the massive tax and spending bill she wishes there is a second plan up Biden’s sleeve.
“I wish that we could all be more on the same page, in terms of timing, of the need to push the [American Families Plan],” Hirono declared. “I’m hopeful we are going to have a meeting of the minds and not wait until next year… we better have a Plan B.”
Rep. Dean Phillips (D-MN) continued that Democrats are lost in a maze of complex congressional schemes, and no one knows “where this [package] is gonna go.” Phillips further told Politico he holds the Democrat leadership responsible for the mess.
“None of us know where this is gonna go,” Phillips stated. “This is where leadership is made or broken, plain and simple. And that’s true of the president, that’s true of speakers, that’s true of majority leaders.”
Far-left members are further annoyed with the very top of the party. Rep. Jamaal Bowman (D-NY) told Politico he is “tired” of the bad Democrat leadership.
“I am very tired of it,” stated Bowman. “I don’t think they are making their decisions based on the needs of the American or even the people in their own state.” He continued that they seem more motivated by “corporate interest.”
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), a far-left radical who declines to pay her dues owed each year to the Democrat Party, has almost given up the fight of passing Biden’s agenda and is willing to compromise.
“There is absolutely a level where it’s not just something that is not better than nothing, but something can actually do more harm,” announced Ocasio-Cortez about the package. “That’s why we are holding firm on our line. This isn’t just a flight of fancy.”
In recent days, Biden’s trojan horse package has hit the skids.
Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) and Sen. Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ) have announced they will not back such a massive $3.5 trillion package.
Sinema has reportedly requested House Speaker Pelosi (D-CA) honor her promise of commencing a vote for the Senate-passed $1.2 trillion infrastructure bill on or before September 27. If the House declines to satisfy the deadline, Sinema will reportedly not support Biden’s $3.5 trillion reconciliation package.
