Today is supposed to be D-Day for the Democrats, and their self imposed deadline to raise the debt ceiling, avoid a government shutdown, and continue their massive spending spree.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said the smaller, $1 trillion 'bipartisan' infrastructure bill would pass for sure this week, with the hopes that it would include Republican support for the behemoth $3.5 trillion dollar bill, which cannot happen until the debt ceiling is raised.
Congressional candidate Wesley Hunt, who made it official that he is going to run in the state's new 38th Congressional district says he's ok with the smaller bill, because it's about actual infrastructure, not the Dems radical agenda.
"A trillion dollars is a lot of money. $3.5 trillion is out of the question. I don't want the American people to think that we can continue to spend like this, without there being some kind of consequence that's going to be passed down to our children, our grandchildren, and to future generations."
That is exactly what is going to happen, which is why some are wondering if the Democrats can muster the votes to get both bills passed?
Retired political science professor Allan Saxe told KTRH, as bad as it may look? Nancy Pelosi can pull it off. "Nancy Pelosi is a magician, a wizard. This is her last hurrah, so she's going to go all out to get it through."
As for the future? Hunt told KTRH he is running again for a reason. "We have got to take back the House in 2022, and I think we have a strong opportunity to do that starting right here in Texas."
The countdown has begun.
