Democrats Block GOP Attempt to Ban Blank Check

Democrats Block GOP Attempt to Ban Blank Check

(AmericanProsperity.com) – The government is filled with checks and balances thanks to the separation of powers in our government’s three branches. But, Democrats are slowly chipping away at the balance and transparency within the government. This time, they’re exempting legislation from certain budgetary requirements.

On Monday, January 4, Democrats passed House rules that would exempt certain measures, such as Medicare-for-All and the Green New Deal, from “PAYGO” requirements. This would allow legislation to vote on some bills without budget analysis and approval by the Congressional Budget Office (CBO).

Representative Ken Calvert (R-CA) expressed his thoughts on the true agenda of Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and the self-proclaimed Liberal “squad”:

Representative Jason Smith (R-MO) filed a Motion to Commit in order to strike this blank check the Democrats wrote themselves in the rules, but the Democrats pushed them through anyway.

As Democrats enter the 117th Congress, their agenda includes passing socialist legislation, limiting freedoms, and raising taxes. This latest move makes it just a bit easier for them to start. Now, more than ever, we must encourage our GOP lawmakers to stand up for truth and transparency.
