Barry Moore Alleges Progressives Have Taken Over Dem Party, Like Cori Bush Who Called $1.5T ‘Crumbs’

U.S. House Rep Barry Moore (R-AL) had a lot to say yesterday in regards to the recent spending bill fight going on within the Democrat party.

Moore alleged that progressives have taken over the the Democratic Party and that they make up a whopping 96 members – 95 in the House of Representatives and 1 in the Senate.

According to their website, the Congressional Progressive Caucus (CPC) is made chaired by Congresswoman Pramila Jayapal (D-WA), alongside CPC Deputy Chair, Congresswoman Katie Porter (D-CA), and CPC Whip, Congresswoman Ilhan Omar (D-MN).

Moore insinuated that have the progressives have “almost complete control over Speaker Pelosi” and that “These folks throw common sense and economic reality out the window to tax and spend, tax and spend, tax and spend.”

“How completely divorced from fiscal reality are House Democrats?” Moore asked and he shared a CNN article where U.S. House Rep Cori Bush (D-MO) criticized U.S. Sen Joe Manchin (D-WV).

Moore explained that Bush “called $1.5 trillion – yes, TRILLION, with a T – ‘crumbs.’ She says a $3.5 trillion tax and spend socialist reconciliation bill is the absolute floor.”

“These are big numbers, so let’s put them in perspective. A $3.5 trillion bill would be the most expensive bill ever passed by Congress, even bigger than the so-called COVID relief bill that sent almost no money to fight COVID,” Moore continued.

Moore declared, “But consider that in inflation-adjusted dollars, the U.S. spent about $4.1 trillion waging World War II. Many progressive insist that the reconciliation bill should be at least $6 trillion (!), and that $3.5 trillion is a ‘compromise.'”

“What world are they living in?! Enough is enough. We need some fiscal sanity in Washington,” Moore concluded.

According to CNN, Bush railed against Manchin’s limit on the bill and asserted, “This is absolutely absurd.”

She accused Manchin of not being “affected” by the reduced price tag and insisted, “It is unconscionable that he can stand puffed-up and hold the line on something that hurts people now and to say that ‘I’ll toss you some crumbs right now and then hopefully you can say you ate,’ it’s not good enough, and I won’t stand for it.”
