Extreme Left Warns of “Huge Backlash…In The Street” If Biden Negotiates Any Budget Cuts

 May 24, 2023

A very predictable, extreme left is raising alarm over President Joe Biden negotiating spending cuts to the federal budget with House Republicans, during talks to raise the debt ceiling. Like petulant children, they are stamping their feet in disapproval of any move toward fiscal sanity.

Though the White House claimed that Biden would not negotiate with Republicans, on reducing wasteful spending, the administration engaged with House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R) CA on spending cuts. As a result, the far left went into an apoplectic fit!

On Tuesday, extreme-left Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D) WA warned that any cuts to wasteful spending, including obsolete pandemic funding, would receive a backlash in the streets. She reportedly whined to CNN-

“I think there would be a huge backlash from our entire House democratic caucus, certainly the progressives — but also in the streets,” …adding “It’s important we don’t take steps back from the very strong agenda that president himself shepherd[ed] and led over the past two years,”

Adding to the juvenile fit, socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D) NY declared

 “It’s going to be a problem,” …“We do not legislate through the debt ceiling for this very reason,”

-Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D) NY

The Biden administration refuses to cut wasteful spending, while demanding tax increases or revenue increases in the debt ceiling deal. However, on Monday, McCarthy and Biden administration officials met to discuss the budget. McCarthy reported-

“I felt we had a productive discussion. We don’t have an agreement yet,” …“The tone tonight was better than any other time we’ve had discussions,”

-Kevin McCarthy, (R) CA, House Speaker

Additionally, fearmongering and secretive, Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen, claims the nation could default on its debt as soon as June 1. But, she refuses to provide exact information or transparency on exactly how long the federal government will be able to operate before it defaults in the coming weeks or months.

So, the cliff hanger continues. Sadly the Democrats continue to behave like children who not only cannot, but will not, play nicely in the sandbox. The endless frustration of watching this fiscal debacle is maddening. American’s who actually pay the bills and keep the lights on – deserve better.

“The American people expect more from Congress. They expect fiscal responsibility and common sense. They expect us to return to the pay-as-you-go budget rules that we had enacted in the past that helped us establish a surplus, however briefly.”
