As the nation is distracted by various COVID-centered discussion and media debate amid headlines of forced vaccinations, mask mandates and various other COVID compliance fiats, there is something rather troubling happening in congress.
Earlier today, the UniParty Senate (Democrats and Republicans) voted to approve cloture on HR-3684 the Senate version of the House infrastructure bill. The cloture vote now means the bill will be debated and opens the Senate floor for amendments to the bill. However, this cloture vote is odd….
…. BECAUSE THE D**NED SENATE BILL ISN’T EVEN WRITTEN YET!
That’s right. The U.S. Senate just voted to invoke cloture and begin debate on a bill that has not even been written. This is how dysfunctional the legislative branch has become. Not a single senator has seen the text of the bill they just voted to start debating.
The UniParty exists in both chambers of the legislative branch, but the UniParty in the Senate is absurd in the extreme. How can a senator approve moving forward to debate the merits of a bill that has not even been written?
This is where the manipulative Senate scheme called reconciliation is surfacing again, circa ObamaCare origin 2010. Reconciliation is supposed to be a final process where a budgetary spending bill from the House and a spending bill from the Senate are reconciled. However, just like the ObamaCare fiasco the Senate is using reconciliation to actually create a bill from the beginning, AND you are not going to like what they are about to put in it.
According to Joe Biden, who tipped his hand earlier today, the UniParty will likely insert “immigration reform”, aka amnesty for illegal aliens (DACA and DAPA), into the infrastructure spending bill.
The Senate Republicans, the right-wing of the UniParty bird, are trying to hide their support for amnesty by using this method to get it passed: (A) while the American public are distracted by COVID; and (B) without the American public knowing they are passing amnesty legislation. WATCH:
The UniParty, a majority group inside the legislative branch, is the worst possible group of scheming and conniving creatures in DC.
WASHINGTON DC – […] In his opening remarks Friday, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer predicted that the Senate would move quickly on the bill and suggested that the chamber could stay in during the weekend.
“With the cooperation of our Republican colleagues, I believe we can finish the bipartisan infrastructure bill in a matter of days,” Schumer said, adding that the legislation is a “massive down payment towards rebuilding our nation’s infrastructure” that “ will benefit our economy for years and decades.”
But in a sign that the process is nowhere near over, Friday’s vote was briefly interrupted after a draft of the legislation began to circulate that Republicans did not support. Republicans are asking for assurances from Schumer that the text will be based on the agreement by a bipartisan group of 10 negotiators.
Before the vote, Schumer and Portman spoke by phone and the New York Democrat assured him that he would use the bipartisan group’s language, according to sources familiar with the call. Schumer has previously promised a vote on the bipartisan bill text first.
In a statement ahead of the scheduled vote, Sens. Rob Portman (R-Ohio) and Kyrsten Sinema (D-Ariz.) said the text would be released when it was final. (read more)
Here’s a novel idea. How about you WRITE a bill, letting everyone see what is in it, before you begin to VOTE on it!
Hopefully, America can see what is going on here. The United States Senate doesn’t want US to see the bill they have agreed to vote on.
They are not hiding the amnesty bill from themselves, they are hiding it from US because they don’t want the immediate backlash from U.S. voters.
Damn, this is infuriating.
A pox on all their houses!
