Two Simple Questions Ought To Guide Every Vote in Congress

It’s like spending $75 on a hamburger because you really like the restaurant’s pickles. You’d never do that, but for some reason, you’re supposed to applaud the government spending over a trillion dollars on a so-called “infrastructure” bill the week before last, which had only a pickel’s worth of spending on actual infrastructure.
Two simple questions ought to guide every vote in Congress: (A) Is this bill within the Constitutional role of the federal government? And (B) Is it a wise and appropriate use of your hard-earned money?
The so-called “infrastructure” bill the week before last failed the second test. It wasn’t even close. And Democrats’ next socialist spending spree vote later this week – estimated to cost almost $5 trillion – miserably fails both tests.
I’ll be voting no on that bill as well.
