Republicans Struggle To Stop Democrats’ New Spending Plans

In the event that Republicans regain control of one or both houses of Congress, three prominent Republican senators are pleading with their party not to agree to a Democratic post-election omnibus spending proposal during the lame duck session.

Republicans are being urged by Sens. Ted Cruz (R-TX), Mike Lee (R-UT), and Rick Scott (R-FL) to utilize this post-election power to prevent Democrats from establishing spending priorities and to hold off until a GOP-led House and/or Senate have passed broader spending legislation.

The senators stated that their voters “are sick and weary of witnessing Washington’s dysfunctional status quo persist while they cope with the repercussions of wasteful spending in Congress” in a Fox News op-ed.

They said sarcastically, “Who can blame them? They have had to observe from a distance as too many Republicans have bowed to the demands of the Democrats carrying out a program driven by radical leftists in the White House and on Capitol Hill, while they have endured the agony of growing inflation month after month.”

They said, “That has to stop. It’s time for Republicans to come together and insist that Congress enact a clean continuing resolution (CR) that simply sustains existing levels of government spending — and not a cent more — until a new Congress starts,” they said.

The proposal, according to the op-ed, would not reduce “ANY” federal funds or services, and it will still allow President Joe Biden’s administration to run smoothly without the risk of a shutdown. The senators promised that if Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., scheduled a vote on a clean CR to finance the government until January 31, 2023, it would pass with ease. “This is about being accountable and acting in the best interests of American taxpayers.” 

Additionally, the senators pledged to obstruct financing for the 87,000 newly recruited IRS officers that Vice President Biden had employed if the Republicans were to win back the Senate, which is now a 50/50 tossup as of September. Instead, the money would be used to hire a lot more border patrol personnel to stop the migrant onslaught.

The research team for the Republican National Committee found that in May, more people crossed the southern border illegally than in any previous month in DHS history, an increase of 300% since May 2021.

  1. Biden-Harris-Obama, defund Law Enforcement, making it more dangerous in our communities. Releasing illegals, sex offenders, and felons back into our communities because, in CA, Newsom doesn’t allow the DA’s to do their job. Soros funded the Democrat DA’s campaigns. Biden hiring Federal police will allow them to override local police, This is what happened in Cuba when Castro took 0ver with help from Russia. My neighbors were kicked out of Cuba after the Federal police arrested them and took everything they owned. They were lucky to have family in FL who took them in and sponsored them when Cuba transported them to FL. Never on Welfare, learned English, one of the best neighbors I have had.

  2. Just take the money out of their bank accounts and that way they can pay for it all, instead of us paying for their stupid ideas.
