After the House passed the massive $1.75 trillion spending package, Republicans could do nothing but shake their heads in disbelief.
They continue to pitch the narrative that the bill costs nothing, but that will all play out soon enough if the Senate passes the legislation.
It won’t take long for the deficit to show the effects of the spending, which is why Gingrich believes Dems shortsightedness is political suicide.
Marching Off the Ledge
As Americans have learned more and more about this legislation, the less they like it.
That is precisely why House Minority Leader McCarthy (R-CA) spent more than eight hours on the House floor before the vote took place.
McCarthy broke down the parts of the bill Democrats have been trying to hide, exposing every dirty little detail.
Gingrich stated, “I was very proud of Kevin McCarthy who spoke for eight-and-a-half hours, which even for a U.S. senator would’ve been a lot, and for a House member it’s unthinkable.
“He made a lot of points, and he pushed them into a Friday morning vote when [the public] could watch.”
Gingrich stated that watching the legislation go through the process of passing was like “watching the Democrats march right off the cliff with Nancy Pelosi on this multi-trillion-dollar bill this week was just astonishing.”
On the legislation, he added, “It clearly will not survive in the form [the House] is sending over.
“I’m not sure they can pass anything as long as Sen. Kyrsten Sinema of Arizona and Sen. Manchin of West Virginia hold out.
“They don’t seem inclined to move. When they see Biden at 38% approval and Harris at 28% approval, and they see four or five consecutive polls that show the Democrats losing Congress by huge margins … they [will understand they’ll] have a long long year ahead of them.”
