Historically, a special session of Congress is called to deal with national emergencies that require immediate attention. But incredibly, when Speaker Nancy Pelosi convened a special session of Congress last week, she ignored the searing images on television of Afghanistan in chaos in favor of Senator Bernie Sanders’ socialist wish list.
Just one day before 13 heroic members of the U.S. military were killed and 18 were wounded in a terrorist attack outside the airport in Kabul, Afghanistan, Mrs. Pelosi had other priorities. She summoned the U.S. House of Representatives members back to Washington for a late summer session not to address the ongoing foreign policy crisis Joe Biden created but rather to vote on a Washington takeover of our election system and her inflation-causing $3.5 trillion budget resolution.
The behavior of these out-of-touch career left-wing politicians continues to be breathtakingly irresponsible, arrogant, and tone-deaf – which is the unholy trinity that describes today’s unhinged Democratic Party.
As Americans observed their fellow countrymen and women stuck in Taliban-controlled Afghanistan along with the grotesque incompetence of President Biden and his foreign policy team, Ms. Pelosi continued her abuse of power as if none of it was happening. The irrational Speaker even dusted off her old “Deem and Pass” swamp tactic to ram through unpopular and controversial legislation on a party-line vote while thousands of Americans wonder if they’ll ever get out of the hell on Earth that Joe Biden caused with his botched withdrawal. This abomination alone should cause the Democrats their majority in the U.S. House and U.S. Senate next November.
