Mitch McConnell Bails Out Chuck Schumer On Debt Limits And Spending

Just when Democrats and their agenda continue to flounder, along comes Mitch McConnell to give them another lifeline. Rather than using the mismanagement of the Senate by Majority Leader Chuck Schumer to extract concessions, McConnell gave two huge concessions to bail Schumer out of his self-inflicted wounds. A bill introduced on Tuesday would allow for another increase in the debt…

No, Sane Senate Republicans Are Not To Blame For Another Near Federal Shutdown

A simple thought experiment: If you leave at 7:55 p.m. for a concert all the way across town that starts at 8 p.m., do you have any right to blame the traffic for making you late? That analogy applies to the United States Senate these days. Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-New York, tried on Thursday to blame conservative Republicans for…

CBO: Democrats’ Spending Spree Will Make Inflation Even Worse For Years

So much for fiscal responsibility. The Congressional Budget Office (CBO) score of Democrats’ “Build Back Bankrupt” spending spree didn’t stop the House of Representatives from passing the legislation last Friday. Ironically, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-California, did more to delay the vote on the bill, speaking on the House floor for more than eight hours Thursday night and postponing…

Joe Biden Wants To Have The IRS Harass Americans While Dodging It Himself

The White House fears that an impending Congressional Budget Office analysis will say Democrats’ spending bill would increase federal deficits. The dispute seems unsurprising, given the myriad budgetary gimmicks in the bill—but not for the reasons one might expect. Ignore for a moment the fact that the bill contains ten years of tax increases to pay for a few years’…

How The Federal Reserve Keeps Stoking Inflation

The inflation tax that working families face under the Biden presidency has many root causes. But one of the biggest involves an individual most Americans have not heard of: Jerome Powell, chairman of the Federal Reserve Bank. Just as inflation has reached a 30-year-high of 6.2 percent—more than three times the Fed’s inflation target of 2 percent—the central bank keeps…

How House Democrats’ Reconciliation Bill Could Face The Senate Shredder

On November 2, five House Democrats—enough to block the passage of the spending spree that the party hopes to enact via the budget reconciliation process—wrote to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-California, urging her “to only bring a bill to the floor for which we have a strong level of confidence…will be ruled in order by the Senate parliamentarian and earn…

How 31 Republicans Just Betrayed The Country To Reward Illegal Immigration, Worsen Inflation, And Pay Off Democrats’ Donors

At nearly midnight on Friday, 13 House Republicans gave Speaker Nancy Pelosi the votes she needed to pass the so-called “bipartisan infrastructure bill” — colloquially known in DC as the BIF. In doing so, these House Republicans, among them two members of the House GOP leadership team, all but guaranteed House passage of Joe Biden’s hotly partisan, $2 trillion reconciliation…

Democrats’ $3.5T Spending Bill Is Even More Crooked Than Obamacare

How quickly Democrats forget. A dozen years ago,  President Barack Obama faced strong and justified criticism for backtracking on his promise, made numerous times during the 2008 presidential campaign, to televise health-care negotiations on C-SPAN: [embedded content] By this year’s standards, however, the process that led to Obamacare—the law that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-California, said we had to pass…

Today’s Left To Americans: You Can’t Make It Without Welfare

New York Times columnist David Brooks recently argued that Democrats’ proposed trillions of dollars in new government spending would provide dignity for the common man. Brooks misses not just the fact that the Biden agenda would undermine work, robbing millions of middle-class Americans of the dignity of a job, but also the patronizing premise underlying the left’s goals. In the…

Only An Idiot Would Believe Congress’s Spending Spree Will Cost ‘Zero’

In recent weeks, the Biden administration has begun asserting that the spending bill independent experts believe could cost $5.5 trillion over a decade will actually cost “zero.” Putting aside the way these patronizing assertions insult voters’ intelligence, does the kernel of the Biden claim—that the Democratic reconciliation proposals will be fully paid-for—stand up to scrutiny? In a word, hardly. Multiple…

Why Are Democrats Hurtling The United States Towards A Stock Market Crash?

Since March 2020, $5.9 trillion in so-called relief spending authorized by Congress, as well as $3.3 trillion in quantitative easing from the Federal Reserve, has been pumped into the U.S. economy. America’s pandemic response resulted in 22 million jobs lost in a matter of months, and we still have 10 million fewer jobs than before March of last year.

Socialist Left Demanding Congress Raid Medicare To Pay For Obamacare Again

Among the many, many policy feuds currently engulfing Democrats in Congress as they try to ram through a $3.5 trillion spending blowout, one holds particular irony. The progressive left—which has nailed its mast to the principle of “Medicare for All”—appears outraged that “moderate” Democrats object to raiding Medicare. These “moderate” Democrats object to drug pricing “negotiation”—in truth a mechanism to…

A Republican Vote To Raise The Debt Limit Is A Vote For Democrats’ $3.5 Trillion Spending Spree

According to conventional wisdom, congressional Republicans have no power to block Democrat plans to ram through $3.5 trillion in tax increases and new spending on welfare programs (among other things). Democrat lawmakers hope to use the budget reconciliation process to pass the legislation through the Senate with 51 votes — all Democrats plus Vice President Kamala Harris. Under this theory,…

Biden Promised He Wouldn’t Increase Taxes On Small Businesses. Well, He’s About To

In releasing the framework for their $3.5 trillion spending bill, Democrats claimed their legislation would include language to “prohibit tax increases on…small businesses.” But the budget Democrats passed includes no such prohibition, and it’s not difficult to understand why. President Biden—who has used questionable tactics to reduce his family’s tax bills by nearly $517,000 over the past four years—has proposed…
