Recently, I’ve been focusing on the circular firing squad Free Republic has become, but lately it appears they have started running out of ammo and are ready to turn the guns on themselves :
Senate OKs Dems’ $3.5T budget in latest win for Biden

WASHINGTON (AP) — Democrats pushed a $3.5 trillion framework for bolstering family services, health, and environment programs through the Senate early Wednesday, advancing President Joe Biden’s expansive vision for reshaping federal priorities just hours after handing him a companion triumph on a hefty infrastructure package.
Lawmakers approved Democrats’ budget resolution on a party-line 50-49 vote, a crucial step for a president and party set on training the government’s fiscal might on assisting families, creating jobs and fighting climate change. Higher taxes on the wealthy and corporations would pay for much of it. Passage came despite an avalanche of Republican amendments intended to make their rivals pay a price in next year’s elections for control of Congress.
House leaders announced their chamber will return from summer recess in two weeks to vote on the fiscal blueprint, which contemplates disbursing the $3.5 trillion over the next decade. Final congressional approval, which seems certain, would protect a subsequent bill actually enacting the outline’s detailed spending and tax changes from a Republican filibuster in the 50-50 Senate, delays that would otherwise kill it.
Senate Budget Committee Chairman Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., once a progressive voice in Congress’ wilderness and now a national figure wielding legislative clout, said the measure would help children, families, the elderly and working people — and more.
“It will also, I hope, restore the faith of the American people in the belief that we can have a government that works for all of us, and not just the few,” he said.
To: OldeconomybuyerTrump couldn’t even get $3.5 billion to go to the border wall for the good of the country,
That’s because everyone (except Freepers) realizes that there are a hundred ways around a wall, and that most of the undocumented immigrants come over on a temp work visa and then just don’t go back. Carry on.
and not even from surpluses or taken from military spending that was already approved, but Republicans go along with this utter BS to the tune of $3.5 TRILLION!!!!
(Psychoanalyst voice) “Zo – how does that make you feel?”
The fix is in, we are done,
Jesus come back soon,
Jesus thinks you’re a dumbass. Film at 11.
but if we have to fight a civil war first let’s get it on!!!
And how did that work out for you assholes the LAST time you tried it?
