Rep. Jim Jordan Says Democratic Party Is In Total Disarray, Says There’s Nothing Good In Spending Bill
According to Rep. Jim Jordan, a Republican from Ohio, recently spoke with Newsmax where he stated that the Democratic Party is in disarray and has not done a single good thing since they took control of the U.S. government nine months ago.
”Tell me one thing they’ve done that’s actually been good for the country,” Jordan went on to say on Thursday’s ”American Agenda” making a reference to the $3.5 trillion spending bill and the $1.2 trillion infrastructure bill that’s being pushed by President Joe Biden and Democrats in Congress.
”Nancy Pelosi has already misled her own conference. She told the so-called moderates that there was going to be a vote on this $1.2 trillion package on Monday, the 27th. Well, here we are on the 30th, and they still haven’t had that vote,” he stated.
”I think we just have to wait and see what they put together, but I do know anything they pass is going to be bad for the country, because that’s all they have done in the nine months since they have had control of the federal government,” the congressman continued.
The House on Thursday approved the Senate-passed stopgap funding bill to avert a shutdown by extending government funding through Dec. 3.
Democrats initially attempted to address the government funding issue alongside the debt limit, a strategy that Republicans pushed back on.
Pelosi is still trying to get enough votes on a bipartisan infrastructure bill as some progressive Democrats vowed to vote against it if the larger spending bill is not passed by both chambers.
Jordan then stated that there’s nothing good in the legislation either.
When asked what he wanted to see come out of the process, Jordan replied: ”Nothing, just what passed today, just fund the government at the existing level. For goodness sake, we’re almost $30 trillion in debt.
”We’ve got a border crisis, crime is surging in every major urban area, murder rates, homicide rates are up 30 percent from what it was just two years ago because of this crazy ‘defund the police’ concept that Democrat mayors have embraced,” Jordan stated.
“Inflation is up, we’re viewed as weak now by our foreign adversaries in light of the debacle in Afghanistan, so I don’t want any more bad things to happen to the country,” the Ohio Republican concluded.
