With the House under Republican control, Democrats have to actually negotiate to make things happen. Biden and the left can’t ram through whatever bill George Soros–I mean, their party–wants passed. Democrats in Congress have to work with Republicans on compromised bills, for the good of the country.
Of course, they refuse to do that. There is a government spending bill that is currently being discussed. Right-wingers in the House refuse to support a bill without budget cuts and other moves. Democrats are unwilling to come to a deal, which could lead to a prolonged government shutdown. Now, one Republican senator is revealing why she thinks Democrats are gunning for a shutdown.
During this week’s broadcast of Fox News Channel’s “Sunday Morning Futures,” Sen. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) told fill-in host Jason Chaffetz that she believed Democrats were rooting for a government shutdown as a congressional spending bill deadline looms.
According to the Tennessee Republican, Democrats would like a shutdown to pause the GOP-led House investigations into President Joe Biden.
Sen. Blackburn believes Democrats are trying to get a government shutdown because it would stall Republicans’ investigations against Joe Biden.
When the government shuts down due to a lack of funding, most agencies close their doors. It can lead to a delay in benefits given to welfare recipients, not to mention Social Security payments and aid provided to veterans.
Congress will also cease activity, at least to a certain extent. Blackburn is blaming Democrats for dragging their feet, just to prevent Republicans from uncovering more on Biden and his alleged bribery scheme.
But Republicans are also slowing the process down, holding out for sharp concessions. There are some conservatives who want the government shut down, so they can blame Joe Biden.
It is possible that the government shuts down, but some Republicans continue their investigative work.
