This bill is intended to fund our national defense effort, it’s an annual bill, and the one for 2023 is being put together these days.
Here’s some of what the Progressive-Democratic Party Senators insist on including in it, things which they insist are critical to our national security.
- an amendment to address high credit card fees
- an amendment to exempt foreign graduates of American universities with advanced degrees in science, technology, engineering, and math from annual green card limits
- an amendment to stop federal employees from being reclassified as political appointees without the consent of Congress
To the extent that some of these are good ideas, they should be put into separate bills and debated and voted on separately. That they’re not is a pretty clear indication that the Progressive-Democrats don’t really believe in them; they’re only using them to obstruct and to push their unrelated agenda.
