Congressional Republicans Snatch Defeat From Jaws of Virginia Victory – Hand Biden Win On Supposed “Infrastructure” Bill
With the groveling assist of 13 House Republicans, the narrative has now shifted from Democrats and Biden on the ropes to victory for the competent, deal-maker in chief who gets things done.
As the Republicans rode high following Tuesday’s drubbing of Democrats in off-year elections across the country, Democrats were fumbling, fuming, and determined to double-down on their America-destroying crazy.
Joe I am the Democratic Party Biden’s already failing presidency was in free fall as the narrative built that the Democrats can’t lead, can’t govern, can’t even herd the commie cats in their own party.
Things, in other words, were looking good for Republicans. But for some reason that I have never been able to fathom, Republicans love to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory. They never learn. Indeed, 13 House Republicans inexplicably decided to throw Biden and Democrats a lifeline. We should note, of course, that 197 House Republicans were not in on the save Biden and Pelosi plan.
The House passed the $1.2 trillion infrastructure bill, which will now go to President Biden for a signature.
The votes were 228 in favor of the bill, and 206 against passing it.
Six Democrats voted against the legislation, while 13 Republicans voted in favor of it.
The House has just handed Biden a major legislative victory.
With the groveling assist of 13 House Republicans, the narrative has now shifted from Democrats and Biden on the ropes to victory for the competent, deal-maker in chief who gets things done. Let’s see whom we have to thank for that.

The only missing usual suspect is Liz Let’s find a country to bomb Cheney, but she is hoping to be reelected next year. Maybe this was a bridge to nowhere too far even for her.

RINOS just passed this wasteful $1.2 trillion dollar “infrastructure” bill.
Pelosi did not have the votes in her party to pass this garbage.
Time to name names and hold these fake republicans accountable.

Oh, Republicans voted to bail out Pelosi? While the squad voted no? How typical.

Republicans who voted for the Democrats’ socialist spending bill are the very reason why Americans don’t trust Congress.

How do you, as a Republican, see what happened in VA and NJ this week and decide “oh this bill seems nice!”?

In the end, how ironic, it was 13 House GOP members who bailed out Pelosi and Biden to support the phony infrastructure bill. Excited for the primaries!

That didn’t take long for the GOP to squander their Virginia victory.
