Sanders channels Pelosi, blasts media for ‘exceptionally poor job’ educating public on spending bill

Tempers are boiling over as the $3.5 trillion spending package that Democrats aim to use in order to radically overhaul America remains stalled, and some are lashing out including twice-failed presidential candidate Bernie Sanders.

The avowed socialist who has gone from a fringe-dwelling crank to a mainstream figure in a Democratic Party that no longer even remotely resembles that of FDR and JFK, dialed up his angry rhetoric as hopes for a swift passage of the gargantuan bill have all but evaporated.

Expressing his frustration that the “Build Back Better” bill that is, in reality, a Trojan horse for the transformational Green New Deal along with social engineering programs that aim to make the U.S. more like Europe and China, Sanders vented in a series of tweets blaming the media for not informing Americans about what’s in the legislation.

Claiming that polls show “overwhelming support” for the legislation, Sanders suggested that Americans have “very little knowledge” of what’s actually in it, which may be a good thing for the Democrats.

He first blamed the media, the same one that lies regularly and as a matter of first resort when it comes to providing cover for President Joe Biden and an administration that has wrecked the economy with his progressive policies.

Sanders also expressed dismay with the coverage of the two moderate Democrats, Senators Joe Manchin and Kyrsten Sinema who have stubbornly opposed the extreme left’s hostile takeover.

Sanders then resorted to the tiresome cliché about democracy being under attack, a constantly invoked refrain that has nothing to do with the traditional meaning of the term and everything to do with cloaking the left’s relentless pursuit of total power.

He also claimed that the American people have a “right” to know about “Build Back Better,” the creepy slogan that has been used by the leaders of western countries to put a deceptively friendly face on their push for socialism on a global level under the pretense of combatting climate change.

Tensions have escalated between Sanders and Manchin as the blueprint for the progressive utopia remains stuck in the mud, leading Biden to reportedly quip that there would be a “homicide” if the two were made to sit in the same room to negotiate.

Comrade Bernie upped the ante when the Vermont senator attacked Manchin when he penned an editorial for the Charleston Gazette-Mail, an influential West Virginia newspaper with the objective of whipping up local leftists to pressure him to get with the program.

However, Bernie’s op-ed has only further infuriated Manchin who blasted Sanders as a meddlesome outsider.

“This isn’t the first time an out-of-stater has tried to tell West Virginians what is best for them despite having no relationship to our state,” Manchin said.

He also reiterated his opposition to the package, adding: “To be clear, again, Congress should proceed with caution on any additional spending and I will not vote for a reckless expansion of government programs. No op-ed from a self-declared Independent socialist is going to change that.”

The failure to cram the legislation down the throats of Americans with Democrats controlling the White House and both chambers of Congress would be a major setback for Biden’s ambitious agenda which is unraveling on a daily basis.
