Dem on hot mic says they’ll jam through trillions for infrastructure


Ben Cardin, D-Md., was caught on a hot mic telling Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg that the budget reconciliation process would “most likely” be needed to get an infrastructure package into the end zone.

In other words, they will jam it through. For Democrats, infrastructure means union payoffs.

While at a Monday press conference featuring Buttigieg, Cardin was caught on a C-SPAN mic saying that Democrats will “most likely have to use reconciliation” to push an infrastructure package through Congress.

Cardin also told Buttigieg that the infrastructure bill will be constructed in a “similar” way to the $1.9 trillion COVID-19 relief bill that President Biden signed last week.

Cardin was heard saying, “Ultimately, it’s going to be put together similar to how the American Rescue Plan was put together … Most likely, we’re going to have to use reconciliation.”

Buttigieg then ushers him away from the cameras.

As an aside, Buttigieg wants to create a rail service throughout the country [which we can’t afford]. They want us out of our cars.

We can’t afford any of this.
