Dems Manufacture A 'Crisis' To Distract Americans From Their Many Failures

Majority Leader Chuck Schumer informed lawmakers that the Senate would forgo a planned recess and remain in session next week to debate and vote on two partisan election bills and a major rule change to modify the long-standing filibuster.

The party’s legislative agenda, regardless, is on hiatus.

Thanks to internal divisions, none of the measures the New York Democrat plans to bring up next week has a chance of passing. The exercise is merely poised to add to the pileup of stalled legislation that has left party lawmakers with little to show as voters become increasingly discouraged by a Democratic-controlled government.

Democrats pivoted to voting legislation this month after ditching plans to consider President Joe Biden’s Build Back Better plan, a $1.75 trillion social welfare and green energy bill.

The voting legislation will likely suffer the same fate as Build Back Better, blocked by centrists who, in this instance, won't support a change in filibuster rules to circumvent Republican opponents.

With their voting legislation doomed to fail, Democrats pivoted once again on Friday, this time turning to the $1 trillion infrastructure bill Biden signed in November that he negotiated with a bipartisan group of senators.

The infrastructure bill was far less popular among party liberals who argued it fell short on green energy and mass transit funding. Yet intraparty gridlock has left the measure as a lone significant achievement for Democrats.

Promoting the infrastructure bill’s funding for crumbling bridges, the Democratic policy and communications team in the Senate issued a “Building back better bulletin."

The bulletin credited the Biden administration for announcing new clean energy projects staffed with union workers.

“The Biden Administration has taken action to increase testing supply, places people can get free tests and the types of tests authorized for use,” Senate Democrats wrote.

Across the Capitol, Speaker Nancy Pelosi hailed the benefits of the measure in a statement issued Friday.

Pelosi announced the Golden State would receive $850 million to fix crumbling bridges, part of $4.2 billion overall for bridges over the next five years from the bill.

“This new funding from the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law to make bridges throughout the Golden State safer and stronger is further proof that Democrats Deliver!” Pelosi wrote in the statement.

For now, Democrats are not admitting defeat on the voting overhaul measures.

In a memo to fellow Democrats Friday, Pelosi called on the Senate to pass the two bills, which would block red-state voter integrity laws the party believes will stop them from winning key races in November.
