In this day and age, it is highly unusual to find high profile Republicans showing even the slightest bit of agreement with Democrats of any kind, thanks in no small part to the mainstream media’s work to divide us bitterly.
But, after a number of Democratic Texas lawmakers fled the Lone Star State for the purpose of preventing their Republican colleagues from passing a voting security bill, (and thusly preventing them from upholding the will of the people of Texas), an unlikely politician seems to be embracing this sort of negligent representation.
Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C. condemned the Democratic spending package and said during an exclusive interview on Fox News’ “Sunday Morning Futures” that, if needed, he will follow the lead of the Texas House Democrats who fled their home state in an effort to kill GOP-backed voting legislation.
“Hell yeah, I would leave,” Graham told host Maria Bartiromo. “I would use everything lawfully in my toolbox to prevent rampant inflation.”
The Republican senator made the comments five days after Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer announced that the Budget Committee had reached an agreement to allot $3.5 trillion for a spending package that would complete President Biden’s infrastructure plan.
The plan will fund a budget reconciliation package so that Democratic lawmakers can sidestep the need for GOP support and shield the funds from a filibuster.
Americans are unlikely to find themselves fond of the idea, however, as a great many Americans are already concerned with just how little our elected officials do anyhow.
