Sen. Bernie Sanders is upset that Congress has not passed the two spending bills proposed by President Biden and which would be the largest spending program in the nation’s history. Sanders has been pushing hard for passage of Biden’s $1.2 Trillion infrastructure bill and his $3.5 Trillion spending bill. Complaining that 2 Democratic senators refuse to vote for such high spending, Sanders tweeted:
“2 senators cannot hold up what 48 senators and 210 House members want.”
Poor Bernie. He just cannot seem to add. The 48 senators and 210 House members that he says are in favor of those bills, are a minority in both the Senate (which has 100 members) and the House (which has 435 members). Sen. Sanders, if you like we can get you some flash cards to help you with the math, if you like.
