MARRK LEVINWe choose liberty, but the 19 Republicans in the Senate chose tyranny, Biden chooses tyranny, and every single Democrat lockstep is for tyranny. How many people know what’s in that 2,700-page document that just passed today with 19 Republicans? We have more media than ever before in this country with more Internet, social media, independent journalists. And you really have to dig to find out. Government by omnibus, massive bills, massive spending, massive deficits, massive expansion of the welfare state is tyranny. 

This wouldn’t be a joke no matter how righteous you sounded. These Republican senators, I blame them. They are the Madoffs of the Republican Party. These are McConnell Republicans. They think they’re doing something for the people. They are destroying our currency. They are destroying our finances. They are destroying our economy. Twenty-three percent of this bill was for hard infrastructure. There’s all kinds of junk in this bill.
