As a radical left-wing $3.5 trillion “infrastructure” package becomes a larger threat remains a looming threat, Republicans have said they have a plan should the Democrats try to ram it through the Senate – and it’s one the Dems should be rather familiar with.
Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham suggested that should the Democrats follow through with their threat to force through the so-called infrastructure package, Republicans may leave Washington, D.C. as a last resort to stop the liberal wish list of a bill from being passed, similar to what Democrats in Texas – who were praised as ‘brave’ by the media as they fled the state to stall the passage of an election security bill.
Graham suggested that Republicans might be forced to deploy the dirty tactic during a Fox News interview on Sunday.
“But before Republicans beat up on the Democrats in Texas for leaving Texas too much, if for some reason they pass reconciliation, budget resolution, to bring that bill to the floor of the United States Senate, the $3.5 trillion bill, you got to have a quorum to pass a bill in the Senate,” Graham said. “I would leave before I’d let that happen. So to my Republican colleagues, we may learn something from our Democratic friends in Texas, when it comes to avoiding a $3.5 trillion tax and spend package, leave town.”
“Wow. So, you just see them leave and you’re saying fine, they they were effective in not giving the Republicans a quorum,” host Maria Bartiromo responded. “You’ll do the same thing on a $3.5 trillion tax and spend?”
“Hey, Vice President Harris, if you think these people are heroes, well then I expect you to show up and pat us on the back,” Graham said.
“Hell yeah I would leave. I will use everything lawfully in my toolbox to prevent rampant inflation. A $3.5 trillion infrastructure package that’s got nothing to do with infrastructure, that is a tax and spend dream of the of the socialist left. If it takes me not showing up to stop that, I will do it.”
“Because if we pass that bill, you’re gonna have inflation through the roof. And if they put legalizing illegal immigrants in that bill, you’re going to have a complete run on the border, it will be throwing jet fuel on a fire called illegal immigration, it would lead to an invasion of illegal immigrants if we put amnesty in the $3.5 trillion bill, so I’d do anything I could to stop that.”
Graham, during the interview also said that he and the Republicans would get behind a $950 billion infrastructure bill that is ACTUALLY designed to improve the country’s infrastructure – with improvements to roads, bridges, and ports.
He blasted the Democrats proposed package further while adding that even some of the Democrats might not support it. “It’s big government, a liberal wish list. Paid family leave, all kinds of new social programs unrelated to infrastructure. So we’ll see if they can get Democratic support,” Graham said.
