Chuck Schumer thought he had all his ducks in a row to deliver Joe Biden a massive win ahead of the 2024 election.
But then Schumer’s scheme collapsed.
And Chuck Schumer got a reality check that left him staggered and dazed.
Schumer formed an alliance with RINO Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell to ram Joe Biden’s $106 billion slush fund – which included another $61 billion flushed down the tubes on Joe Biden’s failed war in Ukraine – through Congress.
However, House Republicans asserted their own authority in the matter.
Biden, Schumer, and McConnell conspired to wrap up aid to Israel with the Ukraine money as a way to force Republicans to fold.
But House Republicans passed a stand-alone bill that provides $14 billion to Israel and is offset by $14 billion in spending cuts for Joe Biden’s 87,000 new IRS agents.
Biden threatened to veto the bill, which showed that his number one priority was maintaining every cent of the woke and weaponized government he unleashed on Donald Trump and his voters.
Schumer applauded the veto threat.
“I am glad that the President issued a veto threat over this stunningly unserious proposal,” Schumer declared. “The Senate will not be considering this deeply flawed proposal from the House GOP.”
But Speaker of the House Mike Johnson stood firm by saying there would be no Biden slush fund bill and questioned why the President believed hiring 87,000 new IRS agents represented a hill to die on.
“If Democrats in the Senate or the House or anyone else want to argue that hiring more IRS agents is more important than standing with Israel at this minute, I’m ready to have that debate,” Johnson stated.
With the country $33 trillion in debt, Johnson explained that the nation couldn’t afford to continually borrow money to send overseas.
“But I did not attach that for political purposes. I attached it because, again, we’re trying to get back to the principle of fiscal responsibility here,” Johnson added. “And that was the easiest and largest pile of money that’s sitting there for us to be able to pay for this immediate obligation.”
Conservatives in the U.S. Senate backed up House Republicans.
“Senate Republicans should stand together with the House and ensure we are debating and voting on these issues separately — not siding with Chuck Schumer and Joe Biden,” Missouri Senator Eric Schmitt wrote on social media.
“Agree entirely with @Eric_Schmitt here. It is morally and politically unconscionable to collapse these separate issues into the same bloated spending bill,” Ohio’s J.D Vance added.
Shumer, McConnell, and Biden worry that splitting the Israel money from the $61 billion for Ukraine makes it easier for conservatives in the House to greatly shave down or even outright kill Joe Biden’s demand to funnel more taxpayer money to the corrupt government in Ukraine.
But the conservatives in Congress who are opposed to more Ukraine money are in touch with GOP voters.
A new poll showed 62 percent of Republicans – as well as 44 percent of Independents – think the United States is doing too much in Ukraine.
An increasing number of Republican voters are begging their elected representatives to honor their wishes and cut off the blank check for Joe Biden’s failed war in Ukraine and instead worry about securing the border here in America.
