If you can get it during an election no matter how crooked and you can’t get it passed through Congress, simply do it with a stroke of a pen says Rep, Pramila Jayapal. Just forget about the fact that it is illegal since all spending is supposed to originate in the House and then be passed by the Senate. The handwriting is on the wall for liberals. They are about to get run over in the 2022 election, so grab what you can now.
SNL did a sketch on this very thing during the Obama years:
Jayapal, who was named Leftist Loser of the Year by PJ Media is insisting that Joe Biden sign an Executive order spending $1.75 trillion on his ridiculous Build back better Bill that cuts taxes for the wealthiest Americans living in blue states. The bill does not even have the support of the American people and would be even less popular as inflation goes through the roof as the treasury prints out more worthless dollars.
“For most of 2021, Democrats worked to pass legislation that realizes that vision. The president negotiated with Congress, including Sens. Joe Manchin III (D-W.Va.) and Kyrsten Sinema (D-Ariz.) directly. Sen. Manchin committed to the president — who relayed that commitment to House members — that he would support the legislative framework unveiled on Oct. 28.”
“But on Dec. 20, Sen. Manchin went back on his commitment to the president and seemingly killed the bill on national television. In a town where your word is everything, this was a stunning rebuke of his own party’s president.”
Because Manchin failed Jayapal and her progressive wing of the Democrats by keeping his word to the people who elected him — how gauche — she now says that the Progressive Caucus is expecting Biden to go nuclear and enact Build Back Better by executive order.
She actually writes that “we are calling on the president to use executive action to immediately improve people’s lives. Taking executive action will also make clear to those who hinder Build Back Better that the White House and Democrats will deliver for Americans.”
Progressive Democrats must be some of the least self-aware people on the planet. Support for Build Back Better isn’t exactly overwhelming among the populace, and Democratic candidates aren’t the darlings of the people these days.
But the 2022 midterm elections look to be a massacre for Democrats, which means they have to do everything they can to shove their big government, socialistic agenda on the country no matter what. Damn the torpedoes; full speed ahead!
