It's not often that you’ll find South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham agreeing with the world of the liberal left, but after the wild last few years that we’ve experienced here in the United States, nothing is going to surprise us anymore.
The latest uncharacteristic move comes after a number of Texas state lawmakers hightailed it out of the Lone Star State for the purpose of roiling a piece of Republican-led legislation. It was a dereliction of duty, clearly, and Governor Greg Abbott has said that the group will be arrested immediately upon reentry to Texas.
Even more shocking is the fact that Graham seems to be all about it.
Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C. condemned the Democratic spending package and said during an exclusive interview on Fox News’ “Sunday Morning Futures” that, if needed, he will follow the lead of the Texas House Democrats who fled their home state in an effort to kill GOP-backed voting legislation.
“Hell yeah, I would leave,” Graham told host Maria Bartiromo. “I would use everything lawfully in my toolbox to prevent rampant inflation.”
The Republican senator made the comments five days after Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer announced that the Budget Committee had reached an agreement to allot $3.5 trillion for a spending package that would complete President Biden’s infrastructure plan.
The plan will fund a budget reconciliation package so that Democratic lawmakers can sidestep the need for GOP support and shield the funds from a filibuster.
The move is wildly unpopular with Americans on both sides of the aisle, as it essentially encourages our public servants to remain in power while doing literally nothing that we elected them to do.
