The Democrats have managed to build a majority. However, it’s a majority of voters who oppose the Build Back Better tax-and-spend scam.
I’ve been writing since the first of the year about the Democrats’ panic resulting from their unexpectedly poor performance in the down-ballot races in 2020. With their prospects for 2022 looking even worse, the Democrats have tried and mostly failed to get as much of their wishlist passed before they lose control of both houses of Congress, and the Xiden Administration has promulgated a series of lawless regulations. Fortunately, the courts still seem to be in the business of upholding our laws and the Constitution.
At the state and local level, the Democrats’ overreach over the past two years on a range of issues from Covid lockdowns to school curricula been met with popular resistance.
Economic reality is beginning to set in, and Margret Thatcher’s Corollary to the Law of Thermodynamics (The problem with socialism is that it always runs out of other people’s money.) is at work.
Things are about to get even uglier. I expect a flurry of activity from the Democrats to grab as much as they can before they lose what control they still have. 2022 is going to be weird.
