Senate Democrats on Friday boasted that they successfully managed to get just about everything they wanted in a massive spending and tax cut bill, despite being the minority party in both the House and Senate.
“Months ago, Democrats called on Republicans to work with us to craft a budget agreement. We wanted to get rid of sequestration, we were able to do that,” said Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev. “We wanted to make sure there is parity between defense and the middle class, we wanted to make sure that we kept these poison pills off the legislation.”
“All three goals we had, we accomplished,” he said. Reid said Democrats were able to beat back GOP efforts to defund Planned Parenthood, and stop plans to tighten rules for accepting refugees.
Even the lone GOP victory, ending the ban on U.S. oil exports, was matched by the extension of green energy tax credits.
Normalcy bias is still the greatest enemy. As the political elite steal our wealth, firearms and morality, the people believe in a savior. Unfortunately, it is a savior coming out of the 2016 presidential elections. I suppose that we will have to suffer more in order to recognize reality. Got Faith?
