Excellent News For America! And it comes from such a dry source that most people would find it boring: “Parliamentary procedure.” You might have snoozed through the discussions of that in school, but parliamentary procedure might possibly save America from being “transformed” into a leftist dystopia.
Chuck Schumer had hoped to use “reconciliation,” the process of passing a budget bill with only 51 votes to avoid a Republican filibuster, to force the Democrats’ radical wishlist onto America. That includes the “For The People Act” that would legalize vote fraud, and the “PRO Act” that would destroy freelance and gig worker jobs. Schumer hoped to stuff them into the gargantuan “infrastructure” bill that would spend trillions of dollars on things that have nothing to do with infrastructure. But last week, the Senate Parliamentarian quietly issued a new ruling: “You can’t do that.” Reconciliation is for tax and budget issues only, and you can’t use it just to avoid a filibuster. So it’s back to the drawing board, or one hopes, the garbage heap, for these destructive radical bills.
At the risk of being called a nerd, I say, “Three cheers for parliamentary procedure!”
Now, let’s wait for the Democrats to declare it a form of white supremacy.
