An agreement has been made between Mitch McConnell (R-K) and Chuck Schumer (D-NY), but why would Republicans play ball with Democrats at this point? There needs to be a reckoning in politics where politicians are held accountable and do their job to stop bad legislation from passing. Democrats have pushed massive spending with authoritarian measures to raise taxes and cause prices to rise.
If there’s an agreement that includes raising the debt ceiling, then you can be assured that McConnell has partly abandoned the Republican party and most of his constituents. RedState even said, “of note is that if McConnell did end up agreeing to raise the debt ceiling, I would owe you guys an apology. I had previously written an article suggesting he would not do that.” A lot of people would be surprised.
The original idea, which was wildly popular, was to keep the government from shutting down if the Democrats abandoned the Covid-19 vaccine mandate. Still, 80 Republicans voted for a vaccine database and many Democrats. The bill is called the Immunization Infrastructure Modernization Act, and according to Breitbart, “if passed by the Senate and signed into law would fund a federal vaccination database.”
The passage could spell disaster for the court’s Covid-19 vaccine mandate ban and allow provisions for federal vaccine mandates. At the very least, it would probably give businesses the ability to use the data collected to discriminate against unvaccinated patrons.
It wasn’t long ago that local health departments went door to door encouraging people to get the Covid-19 vaccine and had names written down, marking who was vaccinated and who wasn’t.
McConnell has said before that he wouldn’t shut down the government, but sometimes opposing politicians need to scramble and be placed where both parties get what they want. It is a great tactic and has been done several times before.
There doesn’t seem to be many bargaining chips left, and voters should take note if that’s true. Not only McConnell but every single politician voting record. Anyone can talk a big talk, but as you saw with President Joe Biden’s campaign that turned into a disaster of a presidency, you don’t have to do what you said you would do. Biden hasn’t done anything for the Black American community. He hasn’t lowered taxes, and his “buy Americans” plan hasn’t happened so far.
