One of the worst spending bills in history was just passed by Democrats and RINOs in the Senate. They also thought they could get away with betraying the American people in a big way.
But Elon Musk put Democrats on notice with this one question.
Senator Mike Lee (R-UT) criticized Senate Democrats for working to kill his amendment to keep Title 42 in place, which would provide border security, and instead voting for a fake amendment from Senators Jon Tester (D-MT) and Kyrsten Sinema (I-AZ) that would keep President Joe Biden’s open borders agenda in place.
“An amendment by Sens Sinema & Tester is designed to ensure a porous border,” Lee wrote on social media.
“A wolf in sheep’s clothing to mislead the American people to believe Dems are doing something to secure our borders. It merely provides them cover to vote against my extension of Title 42.”
Elon Musk noticed Senator Lee’s tweet, so he asked the two Democrats if this was true.
“Is this true, @SenatorSinema and @SenatorTester?” Musk wrote.
Senator Tester answered with the typical double-talk and misleading context of Washington.
“That claim is false,” Tester claimed. “Our amendment was a good-faith effort to take proposals that both Democrats and Republicans claim they support.
Both parties have failed to secure our southern border and fix our broken immigration system. We need to get serious about solving this problem.”
That’s not true at all, of course.
Democrats want open borders, and the Tester/Sinema amendment did nothing more than give them political cover by giving more money for immigration judges.
But giving more money to immigration judges would only let the Biden administration handle more asylum claims from illegal immigrants and let more illegal immigrants into the U.S.
Musk then criticized Senator Tester for voting for the Democrats’ omnibus spending bill, which gave $410 million to secure the borders of Middle Eastern countries but made it clear that Customs and Border Patrol couldn’t use any of the new money to secure America’s borders.
“But shouldn’t there be some funding in this bill to secure US borders, given that we are spending tens of billions to secure the borders of other countries?” Musk asked.
Senator Tester’s answer was more gaslighting, which is what most Democrats do.
“Absolutely and there is money in our amendment to secure the southern border,” Tester claimed. “Senator Lee’s amendment included zero dollars for border security. Ours included more than $8 billion for things like physical barriers and tech.”
Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and Democrats agreed to a $1,700,000,000,000,000 spending bill that can’t be defended.
And the fact that McConnell and the RINOs made a deal that let Joe Biden keep America’s borders open to an illegal alien invasion is the most outrageous thing.
