Democrats are warning Republicans that they won’t tolerate GOP stonewalling as they try to make good on their pledge to “Go Bold” and pass as many of their radical leftist policies before they’ll almost assuredly lose their House and Senate majorities in the 2022 mid-term election.
Fresh off their big blue state bailout disguised as COVID-19 relief, Go Bold Democrats are facing intense pressure from their radical left-wing not to make the same mistakes they had during the Obama-era.
Progressives are warning the Democrats they won’t stand by and watch them water down their legislative priorities after years of a backed-up wish list during the Trump-era.
Senate Majority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) told reporters: “We will try to get them to work with us. But if not, we will put our heads together and figure out how to go,”
Unhinged liberal House Democratic Caucus Chairman Hakeem Jeffries (D-N.Y.) was more direct, calling the Republican party “divorced from reality” for opposing policies that are supposedly ‘popular across America’.
Jeffries hysterically adding, “even among Republicans”.
Yes, because Jeffries knows conservatives are just itching to vote “yes” on one of Bernie Sanders’ infanticide bills.
Jefferies also threatened Republicans not to stand against the Democrats New World Order agenda:
“Our standard for bipartisanship can no longer be what happens here in the Capitol, because we know that the strategy of my colleagues, legislatively, is not to try and find common ground — it’s obstruction and mischaracterization.
They ran this playbook during the Obama administration … They are running the same playbook again.
We will not let them get away with it”.
Radical Left Is Determined To ‘Go Bold’
The radical leftist plow-ahead ‘Go Bold’ strategy is significant with a host of big agenda items looming in the coming months, including sweeping proposals addressing infrastructure needs, climate change, and fixes to Obama’s failed Affordable Care Act.
Rep. John Yarmuth (D-Ky.), chairman of the House Budget Committee, said Democrats would prefer bipartisan proposals, particularly on issues like infrastructure that are widely popular in both parties.
But Democrats are still all but daring Senate Republicans to oppose their radical leftist policies, as Yarmuth warned:
“We’re going to keep putting stuff over there because Schumer’s going to keep putting it on the floor and make them cast bad votes,”
Democrats, particularly in the House, who conveniently forget spending the past four years trying to impeach former President Donald Trump, and in essence, overturn the 2016 election results.
Are outrage, that 139 House Republicans voted to challenge the 2020 election results.
Many of stuttering alcoholic Nancy Pelosi‘s majoritarian-run revisionist history House members claim that they’re disgusted with their Republican colleagues who voted to overturn the 2020 election results and feel little incentive to offer them an olive branch.
House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) summed up the first quarter of 2021 as “a volatile, sad, dangerous period in the Congress’ history.”
Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-Md.) chimed in by stating:
“We’re still getting some of these confusing messages from our colleagues about the insurrectionary violence that took place on Jan 6th.
I think some of our colleagues are experiencing serious cognitive dissonance because their rhetoric is to support the police, but when our police were violently and viciously attacked for hours by facist insurrectionist[s], they turned the other cheek.”
Raskin added that he is willing to work with Republicans on “positive legislation,” but added a warning: “I’m not going to entrust anything valuable to my country to those people.”
Of course, Raskin conveniently ignores his, and the Democrats’ support for Black Lives Matter rioters who looted and burned their way across much of America.
‘Go Bold’ Democrats Won’t Repeat Their Obama-Era Mistakes
Nevertheless, the Democrats’ new ‘Go Bold’ mantra is a significant shift from the Obama years.
There’s a growing belief within the Democrat party that going small or letting priorities stall out in hopes of making them bipartisan is the wrong way to go.
After Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) sparked broad Democrat backlash for telling a radio host that he wasn’t afraid during the Jan. 6 attack by the pro-Trump mob, but if “those were tens of thousands of Black Lives Matter and ANTIFA protesters, I might have been a little concerned.”
Hoyer called it a “racist statement” and House Majority Whip Jim Clyburn (D-S.C.) called Johnson a “racist.”
This, of course, is a break from the Senate’s typical chummy atmosphere.
Crooked Sen. Robert Menendez (D-N.J.) seemingly having never heard of Rep. Ilhan Omar, ran to the Senate floor to call Johnson a racist and accuse him of spreading “bigoted tropes.”
The verbal fireworks come even as Democrats, particularly in the Senate, stressed that there’s still interest in working with Republicans, who they are in constant touch with on a myriad of lower-profile issues.
Child molester poster-boy Sen. Ron Wyden (D-Ore.) who like all Democrats has seemed to forget his actions from Jan. 2017 through Jan 2021, claimed:
“I will always do everything I possibly can to try to find common ground. The question becomes what do you do if the other side just says ‘No way.’ And what Mitch McConnell did in 2009, he said ‘My number one goal is to stop Barack Obama from getting reelected.’”
While the Democrats want infrastructure to be bipartisan, and the Biden administration has been in touch with GOP senators as recently as Thursday.
There remain deep divisions over the cost of the bill and key aspects like how to pay for it, especially in light of Democrats just passing their 1.9 trillion dollar blue state bailout.
Leading Democrats acknowledge that they’ll likely need to lean on their own members and pass it through reconciliation.
Said Senate Budget Committee Chairman Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.):
“What I have seen this year and in past years is that if we want to do something significant, it is very hard to get Republican support.
If Republicans are prepared to support a significant and important piece of legislation that deals with climate change, deals with infrastructure, that’s great.
My own feeling is at this point I doubt that that will be the case.”
Will ‘Go Bold’ Democrats Be Stupid Enough To Do Away With The Fillerbuster?
Nancy Pelosi’s unhinged House is currently sending over a slate of bills to the Senate that contains many of the items found on their radical leftist wish list agenda that was passed along party lines.
Among that slate of legislation are bills to expand background checks prior to gun sales, create a gun registry and extend citizenship to 11 million illegal aliens which the Democrats claim to have “popular support across America”.
Much of what the radical leftist House is sending to the Senate won’t pass, because, the fact remains the Democrats don’t have the votes to pass their radical leftist idiocy unless they nix the filibuster.
Despite the fact that the Republicans haven’t actually filibustered a bill yet this year.
Partisan mainstream media hosts screech that watching Republicans block President Joe Biden’s bills that have 50 Democratic votes and “broad bipartisan support” is nothing less than Republicans slapping the American people across the face.
Democrat supporters are using this type of unhinged Republican Hate speech in an effort to move Democrat senators who are on the fence about changing the filibuster rules.
As of now the Democrats probably remain a few votes shy of really being able to trash the filibuster, which would require the support of every Democrat in the caucus (plus, Vice President Kamala Harris as the 51st vote).
But with ‘Republicans Are Evil” rhetoric screeching in their ears, the Democrats are steadily talking themselves into abolishing the filibuster as a political and moral necessity.
This would be a mistake.
The last time the Democrats took a hatchet to the filibuster was back in 2013 when old one eye Senate Majority Leader Go Bold Harry Reid blew up the filibuster for most presidential nominations.
So one would think after the Senate’s Brett Kavanaugh Supreme Court confirmation kerfuffle the Democrats would have learned not to FORK with the filibuster.
But as we’ve written earlier these Go Bold Democrats have the unique ability to either revised history or flat out memory-hole it.
Reid Forked with the Fillerbuster despite the warnings of then-Minority Leader Mitch McConnell.
But because he and the Democrats had worked themselves into a lather to confirm Obama nominees to the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals, old one-eye sharpened his hatchet and went to work.
If the Democrats want to do away with the filibuster to appease their radical left-wing, so be it. In truth, there’s little that Mitch McConnell or the Republicans can do about it.
But rest assured, when the Senate and House flip back to Republican control after the 2022 mid-term election.
Hopefully, all those memory-challenged Go Bold Democrats will have enough gray-matter left to remember “Paybacks A Bitch!”
