Sen. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) said Friday on Fox News that Democrats’ “socialist agenda is about tearing down this country” and that taxes would end up being raised on everyone in order to pay for massive spending.
She continued, “It is about stripping our institutions, federal control of our schools and of our health care, closing our churches. These are the things that people are seeing. They are furious about inflation, the price at the pump.”
She predicted that the bills would come to a stalemate because people don’t believe that the bills are really paid for, as Democrats have tried to say.
“I think they are headed to a stalemate … because what Nancy Pelosi and Joe Biden and Chuck Schumer are doing, they are talking to people in the Beltway. They are not outside of the Beltway. And the American people have decided that this socialist agenda is about tearing down this country,” Blackburn said.
So far, a few moderate Democrat senators have refused to vote for the $3.5 trillion spending bill, while progressives blocked a vote on a smaller $1.2 trillion bipartisan bill.
