From everything we’re seeing from Democrats, it looks like they’re trying to gain as much power as possible.
They are pushing every advantage to ensure they’ll win every election from now until Kingdom Come.
(Funny, we never saw Republicans this power-mad when they had a majority.)
But seeing how slim their majority is, Democrats are trying everything. There was talk of making D.C. into its own state—but that might hit more than a few roadblocks.
So, they are resorting to Plan B.
From The Hill:
Democratic Sen. Martin Heinrich (N.M.) and Rep. Darren Soto (Fla.) announced on Tuesday they would be introducing legislation to set out a plan to make Puerto Rico a state.
The bill would set up a process to admit Puerto Rico as the nation’s 51st state if such a plan is approved by the island’s voters in a referendum.
Two Democrats, one from New Mexico and one from Florida, are introducing a bill to make Puerto Rico a state.
Isn’t it odd that Democrats from places other than PR want to make it a state? Is it because they care about the “rights” of Puerto Ricans (who already enjoy the same freedoms as you and I), or because they think it will give them two more senators?
Democrats have been trying to find ways to expand and solidify their majority in Congress. House Democrats forced through a bogus bill to protect mail-in voting and destroy voter ID.
They want to pack the courts, so they can add as many radical judges into power as they can.
And they want to create states that they know will elect left-wing senators and representatives.
It’s all so transparent and pathetic. Democrats are more and more sounding like power-hungry dictators and not lovers of democracy.
What they don’t realize is that Puerto Rico had numerous chances to become a state in the past. But their own residents voted it down—because it meant more taxes.
Isn’t that ironic? Puerto Ricans don’t want to join the Union, because they know Democrats will hit them with the same burden they put on the rest of us?
- Two Democrats introduced legislation to make Puerto Rico a state.
- The move will add two more senators to Congress—most certainly Democrats.
- Pushes to make PR a state have failed in the past.
