Rep. Sessions to Newsmax: Dems' Agenda, Spending 'Leaving Chaos Behind'

(Newsmax/"Spicer & Co.")

By    |   Monday, 27 September 2021 08:54 PM

Rep. Pete Sessions, R-Texas, told Newsmax that the Democrats' failed policies and planned spending bills are ''leaving chaos behind'' in this country.

The Democrats' agenda is ''very indicative of administrations that run from reality. In this case, they're leaving chaos behind,'' Sessions said Monday on ''Spicer & Co.'' '

'They've left COVID behind, they've left Afghanistan behind, they've left the problems in Afghanistan behind. They're trying to get away from their border problems. They're trying to get away from the storm. They keep leaving chaos behind them.''

Sessions said that despite these failures, Democrats are pushing through two big spending bills: a $1.2 trillion infrastructure bill and a $3.5 trillion budget reconciliation package.

The latter includes the rest of their key agenda items, such as expanding Medicare and providing free college, even though inflation is rising and people still resist returning to work amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

''We've got to have an infrastructure bill, but I think there's several provisions of that, it gives way too much money to the administration to make decisions about where the money will be spent,'' he said. ''It spends too little on actual infrastructure.''

He also said Democrats ''gutted'' a provision that everything the bill purchases would have to be American by adding the ability to grant ''waivers'' to circumvent that requirement, which he called ''a gift to China.''

Sessions also said that President Joe Biden's recent claims that this spending is ''paid for'' by closing tax loopholes and getting Americans that make more than $400,000 to ''pay their fair share'' are untrue.

''This is a deceptive way to give people an expectation that is not true,'' he said. ''It is going to cost money. It is going to cost the American people not only money, but quite likely will cost us jobs, too.''

The two spending bills scheduled for votes this week are joined by two other pieces of legislation: one to raise the nation's debt limit, and the other to fund the government before a possible shutdown Oct. 1.

The Senate voted down a measure 50-48 that connected the debt ceiling raise with a continuing resolution to continue funding the government beyond Thursday's Sept. 30 deadline.

All 50 Senate Republicans voted against the legislation, but Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., said the GOP senators would support a ''clean'' continuing resolution to fund the government into 2022 without a debt ceiling vote attached to it.

As far as the two spending bills go, all 50 Democratic senators must support them to allow Democratic Vice President Kamala Harris to break the 50-50 tie and pass them in that chamber.
