lhhs - Yep, but that's Republicans for you. Useless as teats on a bull.

Useless as teats on a bull. Yep, that's the Big Bozo.

Says the Brandon supporter. Thanks for the inflation and the most corrupt government in past 50yrs. Being a Hypocrite is synonymous with BigBob

This may be a stupid comment but...Is there a Human Infrastucture bill in written form that the public can read?

The link you gave is for the "Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act." I'm looking for the so-called "Human Infrastructure" bill that has the 3.5 trillion price tag. Is there some written (not what someone says is in it) congressional document?

Too old for this

Thanks for the link. Being that you have so much free time, will you reveal where the costs are listed for this bill? Just like a Congress member, I do not have time to read the entire thing.

Here’s a link to the truth about National debt https://www.debt.org/faqs/united-states-federal-debt-timeline/#US_Debt_by_Presidential_Term

All of a sudden you are concerned about it?

Too old for this

That is not the link he asked for, I don't believe.

NorthLong

Tom, you are correct , despite someone thinking politicians should always vote along part lines. BB thinks she should always vote with the Democrats. But yet he thinks Republicans should all vote for Democrats bills also. He is clueless at best.

It seems to me that she is acting in a responsible manner since the spending we are talking about is all borrowed money. We are currently about $28.8 TRILLION dollars in debt and government spending needs to be controlled to reasonable levels. I wished more of her colleagues were doing the same.

BigBob

tom - What is irresponsible is that she "feels" she is doing the right thing. She was not hired to act on her "feelings" she was hired to represent her constituents who overwhelmingly support President Biden's plans to help all Americans by doing away with the onerous tax breaks the loser handed to corporations and the wealthy.

Bunch a BS!

I disagree BigBob. Here is a quote which shows she votes lock step with the Dems on almost every legislative action EXCEPT for this legislation. She has a mind of her own and doesn't aimlessly follow Dem leadership. You may not like that but that is the reality of the situation.

"In the current congress, Sinema has voted perfectly in line with the Biden administration and her party on bills that came up for a vote. But as we’ve seen with negotiations over the reconciliation bill and more, that leaves a lot out. Sinema still ranks as more ideologically conservative than other Democratic senators from once-red-but-trending-blue states:" END QUOTE

And feelings, yup they control our lives and if you would like I can provide a few hundred quotes and examples. Even a few related to government actions.

Romney, Cheney, and Murkowski were allowed to vote with their feelings instead of what their constituents wanted. Why were you not concerned about that? No one is elected to follow totally ridiculous proposals. Please tell us how you found that Sinema's constituents "overwhelmingly support" Traitor Joe's plan to put us into bankruptcy.

Third Eye

The QOP tried to censure Romney, Murkowski, Cheney and Kitzinger. And Arizonan's, not only Dems agree with Biden's plan. Remember, there are more independents and Dems in AZ than the QOP.

Too old for that... Again, you don't have an argument. Sinema ran on a liberal platform. People, her constituents, voted for her based on that. For example, her platform would have had her voting for the 15 per hour and supporting Biden's plan since it seeks to allow a medicare to negotiate drug prices. Something she said she was very much for in her campaign. It was betrayal to her supporters. Romney, Cheney, and Murkowski's vote, was based on their ethical standards over an attack on the United States of America, an insurrection. It had nothing to do with the conservative platforms they ran on. Your tit-for-tat argument hasn't any teeth.

In addition to the crippling debt, there are numerous social programs buried within the 2,465 page the $3.5++ trillion reconciliation package that has the potential of permanently transforming this nation; therefore, should be questioned. I’m proud of Sen. Sinema for having the political courage for doing so!

The thought that one political party with the slimiest possible majority margin can institute socialist “Human Infrastructure” public policies that could will fundamentally transform this country into perpetuity in a single legislative session is beyond mind boggling. Every American claiming to be a Patriot should be calling Senator Sinema to thank her for putting the best interest of her country before the interest of her party!

If Schumer, Sanders, Pelosi and the squad truly believe that their proposed public policy changes are in-fact in the best interest of this county, then they should be presented in a stand-alone Bill and debated in normal order, NOT disguised as infrastructure and crammed into a Reconciliation Bill!

Which is exactly what the repulikkkan QOP wants to do. They are chomping at the bit to install a fascist dictatorship. That will destroy America.

Too old for this

And your evidence of this claim is...?

Old, wake up from your trump slumber and look around at what he did and is doing to us. He just told you that you will not vote until his election is fixed. Sound like a democracy to you? One man should NEVER have that kind of influence it never turns out well.
