WATCH: Dem Senator Caught on Hot Mic Admitting Democrats Will Ram Through Trillions in New Spending without GOP Support

Democrat Senator Ben Cardin, was caught on a C-SPAN hot mic telling Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg that Democrats will “most likely have to use reconciliation” on an infrastructure package as they did with the Covid relief bill.

“Ultimately it’s going to be put together similar to how the Rescue Plan was put together… Most likely you’re going to have to use reconciliation,” admitted the Senator.

“The Republicans will be with you to a point, and then…” Cardin said.


Democrat Senators went around Republicans by passing the Covid relief bill through budget reconciliation, a process that requires only a simple majority vote.

Not one single Republican in the Senate or the House voted for the pork-filled bill that is really a power grab for the Democrats, teachers unions, minority interests and will funnel tens of thousands of dollars to federal workers.

The Democrats are cooking up a new economic package that will reportedly cost between $2-$4 trillion dollars – this is on top of the $1.9 trillion Covid relief bill Biden just signed into law.

The new multi-trillion dollar economic package will redistribute wealth and rob the American taxpayer under the guise of tackling ‘climate change’ and infrastructure.

Biden is planning to propose the first major federal tax hike since 1993 to fund the power-hungry Democrats’ Socialist pet projects.

Did we expect anything different from the Democrat party after they stole the White House and Senate with a massive voter fraud scheme?
