Thousands of American lives are in terrible danger trapped behind Taliban lines.
Yet Democrats instead are focused on their political priorities.
Nancy Pelosi has an underhanded scheme to use Afghanistan to her advantage.
According to White House estimates there are 11,000 Americans who are still trapped in Afghanistan
Instead of focusing on helping the situation Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) is hoping that the crisis will distract from a $5 trillion spending spree Rep. August Pfluger (R-TX) alleged on Monday.
“Nothing to see here, just Nancy Pelosi calling the US House back in to discuss $5 TRILLION in partisan spending—but no hearings scheduled on the ongoing situation in Afghanistan,” Pfluger tweeted.
“Washington’s priorities are backwards,” he added.
Rep. Jim Banks (R-ID) also called out Pelosi, saying that her scheme was “shameful.”
“Meanwhile, while no one is paying attention, Pelosi is calling us back to DC tomorrow to vote on a nearly $5 trillion socialist big government takeover and a bill to federalize elections to take control from the states to help Dems win on Election Day,” Banks said. “Shameful!!”
President Joe Biden is also expected to shift focus away from the crisis in Afghanistan and focus on passing massive spending in the middle of an inflation problem.
Pelosi currently doesn’t seem to have enough votes as nine moderate Democrats are unwilling to go along with Pelosi’s scheme.
“We expect to see the president personally get involved today by calling Democratic lawmakers, according to sources,” Punchbowl News reported. “We expect moderates to tell Biden that if they had an infrastructure vote today, they could attract Republican yes votes — potentially an attractive proposition for the president.”
“Key members of the moderate crew” told Punchbowl Sunday that they will not, “under any circumstances, back down” until Pelosi holds a single “vote on the $1 trillion bipartisan Senate infrastructure bill before voting for the budget resolution.”
The fact that it appears that Biden is taking too much time to call Democratic lawmakers is astounding.
The clock is ticking down for Americans trapped in Afghanistan. Biden has agreed to stick with the August 31 withdrawal deadline.
And for our Afghan allies the options are even more limited as the BBC reports that the Taliban are no longer allowing Afghans to go to the Kabul airport to try and leave the country.
Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), chairman of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence said that it’s “very unlikely” that the United States was going to have all Americans evacuated from Afghanistan by August 31.
It’s honestly horrifying that Democrats are focused on passing insane spending instead of focusing on evacuating Americans in need.
