Senate Democrats Advance $3.5 Trillion Budget With No Republican Votes

Democrats were able to avoid needing Republican votes by utilizing a process known as budget reconciliation, which cuts the number of votes required from 60 to 50.

Democrats control the upper chamber by virtue of Vice President Kamala Harris's ability to cast tiebreaking votes in her role as president of the Senate. If Rounds had been present and voted no, Harris could have broken the tie.

Republicans denounced the budget, which has yet to be drafted.

"There is absolutely no way that I could support the Democrats' $3.5 trillion dollar tax and spend bill from hell. The unsustainable spending policies put forth by this Administration are irresponsible and will do nothing but crush economic recovery, unleash runaway inflation, and destroy the futures of our children and grandchildren," Sen. Roger Marshall (R-Kan.) said in a statement.

"Democrats' $3.5 trillion wish list on new entitlements, climate change, and amnesty is a reckless spending spree that will accelerate the national debt. This is not what Oklahomans want, and this is not what our nation needs," added Sen. James Lankford (R-Okla.).

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) said that the passage of the budget showed Democrats have "fully embraced the radical left."

So the rinos voted for the infrastructural bill which needed the 60 votes and now will get cover and can vote against this one and it will still pass. I bet romney is laughing his ass off.
