Pelosi thought she scored a big win, after getting House Democrats to pass her version of Biden’s bloated spending bill. But the bill is far from seeing the light of day because it needs to get passed in the Senate. We’ve seen over recent months just how much resistance there is in the Senate to support Biden’s radical socialist agenda.
And now, a little something Democrats slipped into the bill could doom the whole thing.
This “Build back better” spending plan was presented to Americans as something to help us overcome the crisis from last year. Biden claimed it is necessary to help America get “back on track.” But it seems much of the money won’t be on rebuilding anything but putting millions of Americans on welfare. And then there is this sneaky attempt to give 6 million non-Americans lawful status.
From the Washington Examiner:
More than 6 million illegal immigrants in the United States would be granted amnesty and allowed to obtain government benefits by House Democrats’ Build Back Better Act, according to a review by the Congressional Budget Office.
The CBO concluded in November that approximately 6.5 million noncitizens who live in the U.S. largely as a result of illegally crossing the southern border before January 2011 would be granted parole and immediately go from being unlawfully present to lawfully present.
Pelosi’s “build back better” plan will grant 6 million+ non-citizens amnesty, allowing them the chance to gobble up government welfare. This move appears to violate the Senate parliamentarian’s rule that this bill can only contain budget measures, not policy changes. I guess Pelosi thought she could sneak it past Americans.
In order for this bloated, socialist bill to pass, it needs 60 votes in the Senate. But no Republican is going to vote for it. The loophole Chuck Schumer and Democrats want to use is “reconciliation” which only requires 51 votes. But there is a catch, reconciliation can only be used on a spending bill. This massive amnesty plan is an attempt to change our immigration laws.

Can that really go into this spending bill?
Pelosi seems to think so, as does the far-left. Democrats have lurched so far left that they don’t even care about American citizens anymore. They are only concerned with giving non-Americans (most of whom came here illegally) what effectively would be citizenship, all to put them on government welfare.
As we all know, when someone goes on welfare, they rarely get off it. Government “benefits” don’t end poverty but spread it. But Democrats keep pushing it, knowing they can use that to curry support come election time. And with so many Americans hating Democrats these days, they need a new group of people to exploit.
