Bernie Sanders has kept a low-profile during Joe Biden’s Presidency.
He became a major pain in the neck for Democrats after one surprising move.
And Democrats were furious when Bernie Sanders revealed this disturbing truth.
Democrats know the clock is ticking on their control of Congress, with Republicans expected to retake control after November’s Midterm elections.
The window is closing for Democrats to ram through one last major bill via the budget reconciliation process, which allows them to bypass the Senate filibuster.
With Republicans in a strong position for the 2024 Presidential election as well, Democrats could very well be locked out of power for the rest of this decade.
Knowing this could be their last chance for years to pass major legislation, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) pressured Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) to sign off on a monstrous new spending and tax increase bill.
The misnamed “Inflation Reduction Act” is a wish list of big spending left-wing priorities falsely sold as reducing inflation.
The $700 billion bill raises taxes on every American to fund green energy giveaways, 87,000 new IRS agents to harass taxpayers, and Obamacare giveaways.
Democrats worked with their toadies in the corporate-controlled media to try and sell the disastrous bill as a necessary step to bring down inflation.
When the details of the bill were announced, economists quickly dismissed the left-wing idea that it would do anything to bring down inflation, and instead pointed to how much worse the bill would make it.
Democrats plowed ahead with lying about it reducing inflation, though, as they tried to ram it through the U.S. Senate in the middle of the night.
During the debate over the bill, Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) gave the game away by actually telling the truth about the bill.
“Madam President, I want to take a moment to say a few words about the so-called Inflation Reduction Act that we are debating this evening,” Sanders said on the Senate floor. “And I say so-called, by the way, because according to the CBO, and other economic organizations that study this bill, it will, in fact, have a minimal impact on inflation.”
Senator Sanders attacked the bill from the Left for not including his socialist priorities like socialized medicine and more welfare spending after almost all of the amendments he put forward only garnered his own vote.
Despite all of his criticisms, Sanders still ended up voting for the final passage of the bill without his amendments.
It took Bernie Sanders to tell the truth that the so-called “Inflation Reduction Act” has absolutely nothing to do with bringing down inflation.
Democrats know this could be their last chance to ram through more tax-and-spend policies, so they used the biggest problem in the country, inflation, as cover.
No one, not even President Joe Biden, believes that this bill will do anything to reduce inflation.
“What we passed yesterday, helping take care of everything from health care to God knows what else,” Biden said of the bill.
Democrats are poised to deliver one last punch in the gut to Americans with their time in control slipping away.
