The federal government is struggling to pay their bills. Our country is in turmoil: spending is out of control, national security is in a state of despair, yet Nancy Pelosi and her house Democrats will stop at nothing to push their radical agenda.
Amid the looming deadlines, the U.S. House passed legislation that will prevent a government shutdown and suspend the debt limit beyond the month.
The bill passed 220-211 along a party line vote. Republicans were outraged at the final package, specifically the removal of a provision which helped fund Israel’s Iron Dome defense system. Far-Left Squad members demanded Israel receive no U.S. funding or else they would sabotage Biden’s spending agenda.
Nearly every Republican senator has said that they will oppose a debt limit suspension, arguing that Democrats should instead act on their own through the budget reconciliation process that can circumvent a filibuster and is being used for the $3.5 trillion social spending package.
The debt crisis has significantly impacted working class Americans as skyrocketing inflation continues to elevate prices of common goods and services, including food.
Still, House Democrats are framing their pro-spending argument in an attempt to pass blame on Republicans for a looming economic crisis.
House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer said:
“This is not a Democratic debt. It’s not a Republican debt. It is our debt. It is the debt of the United States of America. We don’t welch on our debts. We pay our debts,” adding:
“I hope Republicans will be consistent and will do as they did before: vote to prevent a default and spare the American people from yet another damaging economic crisis right as we are coming out of a pandemic.”
What an asinine statement coming from a Democrat leader whose party demands increased spending in spite of sky-high inflation.
The passage of the bill follows an internal struggle among Democrats on Tuesday when Squad leftists objected to a provision that would have allotted $1 billion to fund Israel’s Iron Dome air defense system. Since the party could only afford three defections, the provision was ultimately removed, prompting outrage from Republicans and moderate Democrats.
Once again, the radical left shows their blatant disregard for supporting our ally Israel and Israel’s right to defend itself against Hamas terrorists. https://t.co/E68v43dtSQ

BREAKING → Democrats just pulled funding from the Iron Dome—the missile defense system that has saved countless lives in Israel from Hamas' rocket attacks.
While Dems capitulate to the antisemitic influence of their radical members, Republicans will always stand with Israel.
