Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) proposes that Senate Republicans take a page from Texas Democrats and leave DC to prevent a vote on a reconciliation bill from the Biden administration and Democrats in parliament.
I said Maria Bartiromo that the mediation package “is not infrastructure, but big government, a liberal wish list.”
Graham then went on to mention Texas Democrats who fled the state to prevent Republicans from voting on the new election law:
Before Republicans beat Democrats in Texas for leaving Texas too much, if for some reason they pass mediation, budget settlement to get that bill on the floor of the US Senate, the bill $3.5 trillion, you’ve got enough quorum to pass a bill in the Senate, I’m leaving before I let that happen. So, with my Republican colleagues, we can learn something from our Democratic friends in Texas when it comes to tax avoidance and a 3.5 percent spending package. trillion dollars. Leave town.
When Bartiromo asked if he’d really considered this move, Graham said, “That’s right, I’m leaving!”
“I will use everything legitimate in my toolbox to stop rampant inflation,” he continued. “If I don’t show up to stop it, I’ll do it because if we pass that bill, you’re going to have inflation through the roof.”
