The RINOs in the Senate are delivering a big win by caving to the Radical Democrats on infrastructure. Once they pass this bill out of the Senate, it will sit in the House until they get steamrolled by the biggest government expansion in a generation. Tax increases on everyone, government-run health care, more government-run schools, amnesty for illegal immigrants, MASKS, and many more terrible socialist programs. Nancy Pelosi has said NO INFRASTRUCTURE until they get everything else. Infrastructure is just a “carrot” for a massive socialist expansion. Why are RINOs so desperate to push bad, Radical Leftist policies? And at the same time give a big win to the Democrats. They will be forced to give up some of the incredible tax cuts gotten during the Trump Administration, one of its many hallmarks. This is bad legislation and politically irresponsible. The Democrats will use it to show they can get anything they want from the Republicans. – President Donald J. Trump
