Multiple Democrat lawmakers are also openly admitting they see this all as crucial to winning the midterms. The view here is Democrats need to pass what they deem as “bold” legislation to make their base happy.
Right now, the left is not acknowledging the economic crisis in America. Democrats are ignoring the reality that the debt ceiling will, once again, expire in December. They’re also ignoring inflation and the massive, countrywide staff shortages.
Stopping unsustainable spending
The $5.5 trillion worth of spending Democrats have in mind is not sustainable; it is also not reasonable. As Republicans and fiscal conservatives continue to note, the country cannot endlessly spend money as if it grows on trees.
Republicans are of the view that getting people back into the workforce needs to happen. A huge part of this is ending incentives that push folks to stay home and not work. Another significant step will entail ending COVID vaccine mandates that engender firings and staff shortages.
