    Such a.waste of money. Generations after us will have to pay. Debt ceiling will have to be raised. Social programs totally unnecessary. Why can't our legislators do their jobs.rather than harming.the people of our country? The 1,2T and 3.5T are unreasonable and.filled with wasteful spending. They should not.be.supported.

    Amnesty is not infrastructure. Pork like loaded bills, skyrocketing cost. Stop spending my grand children’s future.

    Well, it seems quite clear that the fossil fuel industry is keeping a lot of Senators well funded, included Manchin, Sinema and others. There is a lot of protection of the fossil fuel industry on these amendments. I fail to see the logic of the widely supported amendment to set aside funds to prevent funding the ‘Green New Deal’ as this provides a corner stone the actions needed to begin thwarting the Climate Crisis. … … … There are amendments to oppose federal funding of abortions, teaching of critical race theory and other relic views straight out of the Stone Age that have been passed forward for potential inclusion. I do not know how effective establishment of revenue neutral funds for these purposes can be nor whether or not they are threats to keeping big business out of writing our laws, keeping the church out of government, or in denying education that does not match some of our Senate Dinosaur’s world views. These fossils are still living in the distant past and we need some good political archeologists to clean them up and put them in a nice display case so people can study how the ‘old-ways’ have contributed to our country’s problems. … … … Better yet, we can all do a better job at the polls by putting on our political archeology hats and ensure that those political dinosaurs that are still promoting their fossilized views can be safely extricated from governance to be studied in the Museum of Failed Policies - including those Democratic Senators still clinging to their big-oil benefactor’s gravy trains.

    We need to act, and act quickly, to pass legislation to benefit the American people. Those such as Cornyn and Cruz, who are obstructing progress in bringing jobs to American people, need to be voted out of office.

    Give more to the green new deal. The planet is on fire and cannot wait. Roads and bridges do need fixing but what good will it do if we're not around to use them.

    It's about time Democrats got fired up and did what we "hired" them to do: pass proper legislation for all Americans. No more tiptoeing. Shut the Trumpublican machine down!

    Let's see...are the Democrats helping people? Well, based on the map here, they're helping people mostly in red states. https://www.businessinsider.com/americans-spending-paying-down-debt-child-tax-credit-money-2021-8

    I have read many of the admendments proposed by the republicans, where were they when they gave a gift of $1.5 TRILLION to corporations and the top 1%, they had no problem passing that as well as trumps record deficits, but now they want to be fiscal conservatives! THEY ALL NEED TO BE VOTED OUT!!!!!!!!

    It would be a no-brainer if we didn't have those democrats who think they are republicans.

    The amendment process is part of how our constitutional government is intended to work.

    Whatever it takes to get this proposed legislation passed GO FOR IT. Don't wait for the damn Republicans to get on board, because they won't. So do what you have to do to get this passed.
