In the days leading up to last Sunday when Senator Joe Manchin of West Virginia let it be known that he was a definite NO vote on Biden’s “Build Back Better” bill, it appeared that there was a chance that he would succumb to the extraordinary pressure being placed on him by the Democrats in Congress and by many of the far left that are not afraid to intimidate and harass.
As far back as September, The Hill reported
But it did not stop until budget deliberations built to a crescendo this past week culminating in the White House releasing a statement “blaming Manchin for the delay. It tried to strike a positive tone about the future, but it targeted Manchin specifically and alone.”
And so, we now know that Joe Manchin is not going to act in lockstep with Schumer and Biden. Instead, he is standing with 50 other Senators who oppose this nation killing bill.
But that is not the headline here — the headline is Progressives Prod Biden to Act on Own After Manchin’s Roadblock … As reported in Bloomberg
Progressive Democrats – just who are they?
Well, we can start with Pramila Jayapal of Washington State and head of the Progressive Caucus, followed by Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, New York; Ilhan Omar, Minnesota; Ayanna Pressley, Massachusetts; and Rashida Talib, Michigan; and recently joined by Cori Bush of Missouri and Jamaal Bowman of New York. The common thread for this otherwise sinister group of legislators is their adherence to Marxist – Socialist rhetoric with Senator Burnie Sanders of Vermont as their legislative guru!
None of them have ever signed the front of a paycheck and they all, in some way, have been living off the government dole for some time. They have attacked Joe Manchin for his “enlightened” position on Build Back Better.
So, what do they propose?! THAT JOE BIDEN CIRCUMVENT THE LEGISLATIVE PROCESS AND DICTATE TO AMERICA, THROUGH EXECUTIVE ORDER, WHAT THE SQUAD WANTS DONE!! “Progressive Democrats are pressing President Joe Biden to use his executive authority to accomplish at least parts of his economic agenda …”
If that is to be the case, and we have seen an ever-expanding use of Executive Orders by this Administration to circumvent the legislative process, then the question must be asked:
WHY DO WE PAY MILLIONS OF DOLLARS MONTHLY to keep a bunch of senators and representatives in Washington?
Why not just allow the President to enact whatever he sees fit to enact … simply do away with Congress altogether?!
The answer to that question is easy – The Constitution of the United States sets the agenda for legislative and executive and judicial actions in America
The Squad would be well served to read the Constitution and understand the legislative process – understand that they are not in DC to vote their personal agendas. They are there to represent the people who sent them there … much the same as Joe Manchin did for his constituents. That is how it works!
If the Progressive Democrats want Executive Action — Then, I say dissolve Congress and send them home. They are no longer needed!
