Schumer Fails… Bipartisan Infrastructure Deal Falls Flat in Senate Vote

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) and his fellow Democrats just tried to pull a fast one and they got caught big league.

Schumer wanted to ram through the bipartisan infrastructure deal without the spending being completely clarified in the bill.

He also wanted to get this passed with Republican support so he can put through the reconciliation bill, but his little stunt backfired, leaving Schumer with a big plate of egg on his face.

No Way, Chuck

The bill that was headed to the floor was the $1 trillion bipartisan infrastructure deal.

Even though it was a bipartisan agreement, there was still some serious work regarding the actual spending in the bill.

Democrats being what they are these days, Senate Minority Leader McConnell (R-KY) vowed to block the bill until every I was dotted and every T was crossed.

So, when the bill went up for a procedural vote this week, it failed, getting only 49 of the 60 needed votes.

McConnell called this nothing more than a political “stunt” by Schumer.

He added, “Around here, we typically write the bills before we vote on them. That’s the custom.”

The bipartisan group of Senators working on the bill vowed to continue to hammer out the details so a legitimate bill can be put on the floor soon.

The group stated, “We have made significant progress and are close to a final agreement.

“We will continue working hard to ensure we get this critical legislation right—and are optimistic that we will finalize, and be prepared to advance, this historic bipartisan proposal to strengthen America’s infrastructure and create good-paying jobs in the coming days.”

Personally, I think the GOP should walk away from the table as long as it remains clear that Democrats will ram through a massive reconciliation package for everything they want not included in the bipartisan package.

If they want to spend that money, let them own it.

More importantly, if they will not negotiate in good faith, there is simply no sense in negotiating at all.

    1. His type will never leave office willingly. The only way is to get him elected out. Not much chance of that as long as the welfare checks and food stamps keep coming.

    2. WE SGREE TO THST HE HAS BEEN IN THERE TO LONG LIKE A LOT OF OTHERS!!!! TERM LIMITS FOR ALLL !!! GOD BLESS AMERICA!!!!! IN GOD WE TRUST!!!! UNITED WE STAND!!! OUR NATION UNDER GOD!!! AMEN!!!! AMEN!!!!! AMEN!!!!! THANK YOU GOD!!!!

  1. Way to go Mitch!! Don’t get bullied by fast talking liberals especially Schumer, Pelosi and there minions. I’m 75 and my parents taught me a fast talker is always trying to slide something by you to get there way. The new young liberals like AOC are perfect examples also like their leaders.

    1. “there” – not here
      “their” – owned by
      “they’re- contraction of “they are”
      All sound alike but have very different meanings.

      Thank you Allen for your correct observation of the leftists.

    2. Thanks Mitch, don’t let these sneaky Dems have their way anymore. Republicans have to stick together or it will be a one party gov.

      1. AGREE DORIS!!! The DemRats are a thing of the past!! Term limits for all of them!!! IN GOD WE TRUST!! UNITED WE STAND!!! OUR NATION UNDER GOD!!! AMERICA BLESSED BY GOD!!!! AMEN!!!! AMEN!!!!!!! AMEN!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. The Americans have waited so long for the Republicans of Congress to finally stop hiding under their chairs, and begin to boldly rise and defend our interests. It seems that we have waited!

  3. The excuse of “infrastructure” is B.S. anyway . As always , for the dems & rinos , it will just be even MORE U.S taxpayer funds to steal for themselves & America’s enemies – most are one & the same anyway !

  4. Anything the democrats bring up for a vote MUST BE SCRUTINIZED EXTREMELY CAREFULLY.
    All they ever do, is put so much crap into everything they put out because nobody in their right mind would approve of 99.9% of what they push!!!

  5. Our two Oregon Senators always agree with the citizens in Portland, Eugene and Salem and not the rest to the state. We have 36 Counties but only six of them vote Democrat and most of these voters comes from California.

  6. I just got off a 11 state vacation. The road and bridges needs to be fixed, not just in Democratic ran states all states. The infrastructure in the United States needs to be fix, our roads are horrible. The entrance to bridge and exit off the bridges needs to big fix. So Sly Schumer tried to put another one forward. From this day forward, the Senate Republicans needs to read every bit of each bill.If the can steal election, and throw in everything into all the past bills, that cost the American people trillions of dollars. They will try everything thing. Most will lose in the 2022 midterm election. Trump still the President.

  7. So—- chuckie got some of his own dreck splattered on him! Good! Stop trying to bilk the people and do something FOR THE COUNTRY, instead of all this partisan crap! You are supposed to be representing ALL the people, not just your pals and their “ ruin America” agenda. Address the REAL issues, bridges, highways, airports, rail systems and waterways that need repair! THAT is infrastructure, not piglosi’s “ human infrastructure” she loudly touts! What a moron! She and schumer need to be ousted!

  8. I’m glad it failed.There was a clause in there about illegal aliens becoming automatic citizens.So the democrats expected everyone in the U.S.A. to agree to break our laws and agree with them I don’t think so😂

  9. Yes this was a political ploy by Chuckie. It did not leave egg on his face. What this article fails to mention is that the 1 democrat that voted with the Republicans was non other than Chuckie himself. This move allows him to bring the bill back up for vote at anytime in the future without having to write a new bill. I hate him but have to admit it was smart move.

  10. When is he going to listen to his constituents & vote for what they want instead of what he wants. They do pay his salary so he is working for them!

  11. All of the DemoRats work for The people of America !! THEY HAVE NOT DONE THAT FOR YEARS !! TIME TO OUST THEM OUT!!! THE CONSTITUTION NEEDS TO BE APPLIED!!! , RAPEST, MURDER PEOPLE& BABIES IS NOT WHAT GOD OR AMERICA APPROVES OF!!! IN GOD WE TRUST UNITED WE STAND!!! OUR NATION UNDER GOD!!! THANK YOU GOD!!! AMEN!!!! AMEN!!!!! AMEN!!!!!!! GOD BLESS AMERICA & OUR CONSTITUTION!!!!

  12. SENATE MAJORITY LEADER CHUCK SCHUMER (D.-N.Y.) WE THE 50 SENATER ARE PREPARED TO SUPPORT YOUR BILL AS YOU HAVE WRITTEN IT, AFTER WE SLIP A CLAUSE INTO IT THAT YOU CAN NOT READ UNTILL AFTER THE ONE (I) TRILLION HAS BEEN APPROVED, YOU MAY READ NOW, (IT STATES THAT THE ONE (1) TRILLION DOLLARS FOR THE BIPARTISAN PROPOSAL BILL “INFRASTRUCTURE” THAT WE AGGREED ON TO BE ENACTED NOW WILL BE FUNDED OUT OF THE DEMOCRATES OWN POCKET AN NOT OUT OF THE FEDERAL FUNDS FOR JUST TRIED TO PULL A FAST ONE ON CONGRESS.
