House, Senate Raise Debt Ceiling, Install Funding Past Midterm Elections
Washington, D.C.: “The House and Senate have again managed to avoid the ‘disaster’ of having to put our financial house in order,” said Phyllis Schlafly Eagles President Ed Martin. “Chuck and Nancy (with Mitch McConnell’s assistance) shoved through a $2.5 trillion hike to the debt ceiling and continued government funding past the 2022 midterms. The electoral convenience of this situation should escape no one!
“It’s business as usual in the swamp — incumbent Democrats and Republicans have given themselves flexibility to argue and point fingers during election season without having to put in real work on our nation’s problems. McConnell even cut a deal to ensure this passed all while his caucus could claim no Republican voted ‘for’ this train wreck. Despicable! It’s no wonder Americans have totally lost faith in our institutions of government.
“Swamp insiders are worried only for themselves — their own power and influence. It’s time to change! It’s time for Americans to get down and dirty in local politics, local party structure, primary races, and party policy to rout out failed, rotten public leaders. They have embraced the elitist game and abandoned We the People. It’s time for Americans to turn their polling disapproval into political action against this tyrannical elite!”
