At least he’s being honest…
When Democrats reveal their hand, it’s important to take notice of the cards they’re playing. In this case, Sen. Majority Leader Chuck Schumer admitted that the push to pass a massive “infrastructure” bill is nothing more than an attempt to force radical climate policies on to the American people — an incredibly unpopular move that will likely backfire on the Democrats.
Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer said Wednesday that any infrastructure package must contain large scale environmental policies.
“I will not pass an infrastructure package that does not reduce carbon pollution at a scale commensurate with the urgency of the climate crisis we face,” Schumer said about the $3.5 trillion reconciliation bill.
“The Senate will make out largest investments to tackle the climate crisis and environmental justice, ever.”

Schumer’s trillion dollar spending proposals stand alongside a Moody’s report he released July 21 that argues spending trillions will “ease inflation pressures.”
You can read the full report here.
Schumer is pushing the Moody’s report while the Producer Price Index rose 7.3 percent in June from 12 months earlier, the largest demand since 12-month data was first introduced in 2010.
In comparison to May, the index rose one percent. On average during the pre-pandemic Trump administration, the index rose by around 0.2 percent per month.
A Wednesday poll, meanwhile, reveals the majority of registered voters hold Biden responsible for the inflation surge. Fifty-nine percent of “registered voters hold Biden’s economic policies responsible for rise in inflation in the United States, compared with 53% who point to Americans’ return to pre-pandemic behaviors,” the poll found.
The Democrats expensive package is set to be become public in August, after self-designated Socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders completed writing it.
