Here’s what will happen.

Now that President Biden’s massive $1.75 trillion spending bill has made its way through the House, it will now have to pass the Senate before it can go to Biden’s desk.

According to Newsmax, Republican Rep. Dan Meuser is claiming that Biden’s bill will not come up for a vote until Christmas. Meuser said he strongly doubts the bill will be passed anytime close to Thanksgiving since there will be a lot of issues that need to be resolved.

He also noted that House Democrats can expect a lot of revisions to be made by the Senate, that House Democrats will have to vote on once again in the near future.

“How we see it playing out is there are some provisions in this thing that likely there’ll be one Democrat, we hope anyway in the Senate, that votes against the idea of amnesty, or the idea of a 330,000 civilian climate corps or the idea of 87,000 new IRS agents,” Meuser stated. “There are so many parts of this that should be removed … it will very likely change, so the Democrats in the House will have to vote again on it.

What’s shocking is that while the $1.75 trillion spending bill was reduced from the original $3.5 trillion figure, Meuser noted that this was just a trick because many items on the bill have only been accounted for being paid up to 1-2 years. He explained that many of these costs will last for a total of 3-5 years and it will easily still cost $3 to $4 trillion.
