Republicans in Congress have failed us again

By Peter Boykin – American Political Commentator / Citizen Journalist



You’re probably getting tired of hearing this, but Republicans in Congress have failed us again.
With support from 14 Republican senators, the Democratic-led Senate just passed a bill to fast-track raising the debt limit with only a simple majority of 51 votes as opposed to the current 60-vote threshold. [via Just the News]

Right now our country is close to $30 trillion dollars in debt. If we want to take on more debt, Congress needs to authorize a raise in the debt ceiling.

Here’s why this matters: If Democrats want to pass Joe Biden’s multi-trillion-dollar ‘Build Back Better’ climate and social welfare bill, they need to raise the debt ceiling. So holding the debt ceiling hostage was one of the very few tools Republicans had to stop them.

Lyin’ Republicans: Back in August, 46 out of 50 Republican Senators [including Mitch McConnell] signed a letter pledging that they would not sign a bill to raise the debt ceiling.
…and technically the bill they signed yesterday will let them keep that promise. Because now Democrats can raise the debt ceiling by themselves.

But we know the truth: By giving Democrats the power to raise the debt ceiling by themselves, Republicans basically voted to raise the debt ceiling. But they think the American people are too dumb to understand what they did. So here are the Republicans who voted to put us on a fast-track to Biden’s “Build Back Better” bill:

Mitch McConnell of Kentucky
John Thune of South Dakota
John Barrasso of Wyoming
Roger Wicker of Mississippi
Shelley Moore Capito of West Virginia
Susan Collins of Maine
Roy Blunt of Missouri
Thom Tillis of North Carolina
Lisa Murkowski of Alaska
Richard Burr of North Carolina
Joni Ernst of Iowa
John Cornyn of Texas
Mitt Romney of Utah
Rob Portman of Ohio

If any of these people are your senator, I encourage you to find out when they’re up for re-election and vote for their Republican primary opponent.
