Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene announced this week she will work to primary Republican House members who vote for either of the massive spending bills spearheaded by Democratic lawmakers.
“I’ve already told almost every single Republican in the GOP conference in the House that I will primary them and personally spend money against them in their primaries if they vote for the infrastructure bill or the $3.5 trillion budget,” she told Steve Bannon in an appearance on “War Room Pandemic” Tuesday morning.
Greene called the $1.2 trillion “Bipartisan Infrastructure Deal,” passed with the help of nineteen Senate Republicans, a “launching pad for the Green New Deal.” She added that progressives have pushed House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to tie the infrastructure bill together with the $3.5 trillion budget reconciliation bill, which would fund universal pre-K, free community college for two years, clean energy mandates, and illegal alien amnesty.
“We have, unfortunately, weak Republicans in the House that see this infrastructure bill—it’s a big temptation for them—because they think they can go home and tell the people in their moderate districts that they ‘worked across the aisle with bipartisanship and passed infrastructure,’” Greene said. “But that is not what this is. There is no excuse for any Republican in the House to hand over America to AOC and the radical communist ‘Squad.’”
The congresswoman then directed interested listeners to donate to her “Save America, Stop Socialism PAC” if they would like to help primary any House Republicans who do end up voting for the bill(s).
Early Tuesday morning Greene had tweeted the following one-minute ad about the bills:
House Republicans better get with the program and vote against this “Great Leap Forward into socialism,” lest they face the wrath of MTG and the many GOP voters who would surely excoriate them for selling America down the river.
