Biden’s $1 Trillion + infrastructure bill fails 51-49

 $1 trillion+ infrastructure bill was met with a filibuster by Senate Republicans on Wednesday after the minority party complained that (Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) rushed the bill to vote, according to Fox News.

The massive bill, brokered by President Joe Biden with a bipartisan group of senators, has allowances for new roads, bridges, and broadband improvements nationwide. 

The procedural vote required 60 votes to succeed but only garnered 49 in a push that Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY)called the test vote a “stunt” earlier Wednesday, predicting, correctly, that the vote would “fail.” 

“Around here, we typically write the bills before we vote on them,” McConnell, said. “That’s the custom.”

The minority leader, however, said that he believed Republicans would vote more positively when the bill text is ready saying that, “A failed cloture vote does not mean no forever.”

Curiously, while all 50 Republicans voted to block the vote on the infrastructure bill and all 50 Democrats were expected to vote the other way, the majority leader sided with Republicans in a last-minute change of heart.

His motives were less than bipartisan, however, due to the fact that changing his vote offers him the option of bringing the measure up for another vote at a later date, insisting that he was just pushing the legislative process with the vote when he rejected pleas from Republicans such as Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine., to postpone the vote.

The majority leader said earlier Wednesday that “This vote is not a deadline to have every final detail worked out. It is not an attempt to jam anyone … In order to finish the bill, first we need to start.”

“We have made significant progress and are close to a final agreement,” a bipartisan group of 22 senators set to negotiate the measure said in a joint statement. “We will continue working hard to ensure we get this critical legislation right—and are optimistic that we will finalize, and be prepared to advance, this historic bipartisan proposal to strengthen America’s infrastructure and create good-paying jobs in the coming days.”

“off topic” Who,will show up for Hunter’s meeting on his art? Mexican cartel representatives? Chinese fentanyl warlord representatives? anyone seeking political influence, an in general any one of the many pay to play buyers. All keep in secret because Hunter is above our Country’s laws as is his father. Biden’s idea of Nation security use the DOJ as a political arm of the democrat party. The Biden crime family has managed to have criminals avoid bail, avoid petty thief prosecution, like Hunter avoid federal arrest for lying on federal gun applications, attack the legal gun ownership Keep our southern borders open in violation of our Country laws. Biden crime family profits again..

Art my ass. The Obiden family is blatantly throwing their scam in the American publics face and laughing all the way to the bank. To make it worse, this POS judicial system is letting them get away with it. At least the crooked clintons tried to conceal their crimes.

Money grabbing Dems have thrown everything into this bill except the kitchen sink which could be in their because the thing hasn’t even been completely written. It’s past time for the Republicans to stop sitting on their wimpy, do nothing hands (except for a few), and stand together for their constituents and Americans. We are not talking monopoly money here and this is no game. The Dems are killing us with all their fiscal irresponsibility and the current administration. It’s up to us to hold them ALL responsible. Stand up and speak out. It’s up to us to let these so called representatives hear from freedom loving citizens on everything that makes us a free country,and get their hands out of our pockets and future.

When we take back the House and hopefully the Senate, we need to let these Democrats know how it feels to be investigated endlessly. Do away with this double standard justice system. Make them accountable for their corruption. I want to see Democrats standing in front of a Republican judge.

The bill wasn’t even written and they voted on something that doesn’t exist. Just rubber stamp this mess and will fill in the rest later. The 49 who voted for the bill that they couldn’t read, should be fired for voting on legislation that doesn’t currently exist. This is INSANE and corrupt!!!

They (Congress- D &R) have been doing this for years, that is why we need a CONVENTION OF STATES. This way we as the people could make Congress stay in a budget,& have term limits. Also we could Stop The new Capital Police Force That Pelosi is trying to implement in every state, right now it is just Calif. & Florida. If this is allowed what do you think a national Police force is? All Communist Country’s have a national Police force. Do we really want Pelosi telling use all what we can and cannot do. Is everyone in this U.S. asleep?????

“We have to pass it so we know whats in it.” says Pelosi as per Obamacare. Has this now become the new standard of lawfulness for new bills in perpetuity??? Outrageous and wrong.

This reminds everyone of Obama’s Infrastructure bill known as the “Shovel-Ready Jobs Swindle” of 2009.
Only $98.3 billion of the $800 billion stimulus was dedicated to transportation and infrastructure.

Roads have been falling apart for decades. You drive much or did you just recently acquire a drivers license? I haven’t ever seen Republicans hold up any revenue for roads and bridges.

This kind of spending coming from this Government has got to stop, we small pee-ons cannot afford Joe Biden’s open wallet spending. There is absolutely no accountability to this kind of spending, calling everything “INFRASTRUCTURE” is corrupt. Show us what is in this bill, show us how much you have spent on removing the debt on our debt of the Government. Time for You Joe Biden to pay your bills and stop making us pay your racked-up spending.

I only wish they would. I also wish Trump was back in White House to get America going for greatness again. Biden adminstration is as fraudulent as the aws the election that put him there. Our country is in real trouble under a Biden administration.
They assassinate Kennedy and let this brain dead Biden in our White House?

Schumer is the Pelosi of the senate, a pig. They force that crap through and the country will go bankrupt. Our debt is nearing 3o trillion and the world GDP in a good year is still less than 100 trillion. We have yearly deficits greater than most country’s budgets. And you get much of the debt from the billionaires because their total worths are probably still under 4 trillion. A trillion is one thousand billion so Jeff Bezos has a long way to go to be a trillionaire.

A definitive explanation needs to be 100 percent clear to where every dollar is slated. There can be no add on’s to items that are not infrastructure. If this is truly for infrastructure, then every dollar dedicated needs to be accounted for. Show us the voters and we will decide for our country. I believe we can do a better process of making a decision than our elected representatives who constantly tack on extras that don’t belong.

Old Chucky forgot how to do it right. You do not vote until people can read the bill. Time for retirement and take the rest of them with you like Pelosi. I think the people are getting tired of these jokers.

He deserves every bit of blame. For decades he’s been a parasite in government, getting rich while corruptly selling off access. Sure he’s senile now but he’s been corrupt all his life and deserves a reckoning.
