Aruling on Monday by the Senate parliamentarian indicates that Democrats may be able to pass even more priorities without any GOP backing, a move that the party already utilized to pass the coronavirus relief package and may need to use again.

“The Senate’s top referee on procedural matters ruled Monday that a revised budget resolution could potentially be used to pass another reconciliation bill, according to Senate Democratic officials,” Roll Call reported.

“The Parliamentarian has advised that a revised budget resolution may contain budget reconciliation instructions. This confirms the Leader’s interpretation of the Budget Act and allows Democrats additional tools to improve the lives of Americans if Republican obstruction continues,” a Schumer spokesperson said in a statement Monday, according to The Hill. “While no decisions have been made on a legislative path forward using Section 304 and some parameters still need to be worked out, the Parliamentarian’s opinion is an important step forward that this key pathway is available to Democrats if needed.”

Mitch Finally Gets in The Gutter And Savagely Fights Dems Over “Court-Packing” Scheme

Published

on

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) spoke out on Thursday to slam the efforts being made by some Democrats to pack the Supreme Court, calling it a “hostage-taking” move aimed to ensure there is a “sword dangling” over the justices as they try to decide cases in the future.

McConnell said this just before a group of House and Senate Democrats were set to unveil a new bill aimed at packing the court, increasing the number of justices from nine to thirteen.

“It’s not just about whether this insane bill becomes law,” McConnell said, according to Fox News. “Part of the point here are the threats themselves. The left wants a sword dangling over the justices when they weigh the facts in every case. As the Democrat leader threatened just two years ago, Democrats want the justices to know that they will, quote, ‘pay the price,’ end quote, for rulings that Democrats don’t like.”

The bill to pack the Supreme Court is being supported by Sen. Ed Markey (D-MA), House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler (D-NY), Rep. Hank Johnson (D-GA), and Rep. Mondaire Jones (D-NY).

“Our democracy is hanging by a thread. And the far-right majority on the U.S. Supreme Court is cutting it,” Jones said. “The majority’s doctrine is clear: if a law suppresses the right to vote, it is constitutional; if a law protects the right to vote, especially for Black and brown voters, it is unconstitutional. The American people have had enough.”

“Republicans stole the Court’s majority, with Justice Amy Coney Barrett’s confirmation completing their crime spree,” Markey added. “Of all the damage Donald Trump did to our Constitution, this stands as one of his greatest travesties.”

Not stopping there, Markey went on to say that the Senate needs to “abolish the filibuster to ensure we can pass it.”

Earlier this week, President Joe Biden signed an executive order that created a commission with a mandate to study whether he should attempt to pack the court. In the wake of this signing, McConnell called the order “an attempt to clothe” an attack on the Supreme Court in “fake legitimacy.”

“But alas, the far left cannot even wait for the fake theatrics of the fake study to play out,” McConnell said on Thursday. “Today Democrats in the Senate and the House have announced that they will once again threaten judicial independence from the steps of the court.”

McConnell then ripped into the way the media is treating what Democrats are doing.

“If Republicans had introduced a bill to add four Supreme Court seats for the last president to full, there would have been weeks of wall-to-wall outrage on every newspaper and cable TV channel,” McConnell said. “Now it seems the main strategies are to either shrug off and look the other way or to actively pay along and somehow lend credence.”

Marjorie Taylor Greene Calls Out AOC To Debate Her Over Green New Deal

Published

on

Freshman GOP Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene has a lot of time on her hands these days because petty Democrats took the highly unusual step of stripping her of all of her committee assignments because she said some politically incorrect things about some politically incorrect conspiracies.

CNN, MSNBC, WaPo, and the New York Times traffic in fake news and wild conspiracy theories about ‘Russian collusion’ but Democrats in Washington, D.C., still watch and read them anyway.

In any event, Greene is attempting to put her free time to good use by doing something those lefty media outlets don’t do a good job of, which is informing the American people about relevant, important issues of the day.

As such, she has challenged fellow Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, self-described New York democratic socialist, to debate the ‘merits’ and pitfalls of the AOC’s Green New Deal, which is entirely appropriate given that Democrats and the Biden regime are attempting to implement huge chunks of it while disguising the various planks as “infrastructure.”

“@AOC I’d like to challenge you to a debate on the Green New Deal economic policy. Since you sponsored the Green New Deal and have a degree in Economics, I’m sure you are more than qualified,” Taylor-Greene wrote on Twitter in a short thread on Wednesday.

“I just have a degree in Business Admin and have owned a construction company for 20 years. A debate between AOC and I on the Green New Deal economic policy would be informative for the American People. They deserve to hear the two sides with pro’s and cons,” she continued.

“@AOC you can choose one moderator and I choose a moderator. Then we can negotiate a major news network to host the debate. Let’s do this for The People. What do you say?” Taylor-Greene asked.

As of this writing, Taylor-Greene had not been taken up on her offer, but it’s early.

As for whether or not this would even be a productive debate, the answer is: Yes. Yes, it would be.

For one, it’s a debate that would draw a lot of attention even from a media that is laser-focused on Kamala Harris puff pieces about her wonderful crocheting abilities instead of why she isn’t doing what Biden tasked her with doing — handling the border crisis.

For another, it’s a debate that needs to be had. The plan put forth by AOC calls for multiple tens of trillions of dollars to be spent over a relatively short period of time. Many elements of the plan will dramatically impact the lives of all Americans, and in many negative ways (in terms of living our lives, expense, freedoms, etc.).

Finally, the debate would highlight the wide gulf between legitimate big government, authoritarian socialism/Marxism and legitimate smaller government, liberty-minded capitalism, and in real time. Taylor-Greene as a business owner can provide real-life, real-world examples of how economic policies do and do not work, while AOC can use the time to pontificate about perceived ‘social injustices’ of how a white privileged female lawmaker from Georgia got to own her own business in the first place.

No doubt it was “on the backs of persons of color.”
