Communist Logic: Bernie Sanders Says 52 Senators Should Not Be Allowed to Overrule 48 Senators

In a bizarre tweet on Friday, socialist Senator Bernie Sanders said that 52 senators “cannot be allowed to defeat” 48 senators. The comment was extremely bizarre to say the least considering for all of history, the majority is typically who wins any sort of voting conflict.

Sanders couldn’t comprehend the fact that Democrat senators Joe Manchin (D-W.V.) and Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ) could possibly vote against the Democrats’ massive $3.5 trillion bill.

Sanders tweeted: “2 senators cannot be allowed to defeat what 48 senators and 210 House members want. We must stand with the working families of our country. We must combat climate change. We must delay passing the Infrastructure Bill until we pass a strong Reconciliation Bill.”

Sanders was immediately mocked online for his communist-like comment.

“This is a pretty hilarious way of trying to say “48 senators should win a vote over 52 senators when it’s a bill I like.” That’s some pretty creative math,” said one Twitter user.

“It’s 52 senators defeating what 48 senators want,” said Nick Pappas. “You need Manchin & Sinema because all 50 senators on the GOP side reject your proposal outright. Get a majority in the chamber if your plan is so popular.”

“48 senators and 210 House members are, last I checked, a minority of both chambers,” said Dan McLaughlin.

“In other words, 52 senators are defeating what 48 senators want and 225 House members are defeating what 210 want,” tweeted Greg Price.

“I know math isn’t a big thing with socialists, but it’s at least 52 Senators rejecting your radical agenda. And 52 is a bigger number than 48.”

“Bernie’s policies are based on the idea that 25 states do not matter,” said Tim Pool.

“Yes they can. It’s called the Constitution dumbass. YOU TOOK AN OATH TO PROTECT IT YOU MORON.”

“House Democrats have taken President Biden’s first-term domestic policy priorities and dropped them into one big 2,465-page bill that aims to expand the nation’s social safety net and combat climate change. Because the $3.5 trillion bill is opposed by Republicans, Democrats are trying to enact it through a budgetary process called reconciliation, solely with Democratic support. But this would require a ‘yes’ vote from every Senate Democrat, and two of them, Kyrsten Sinema and Joe Manchin, say they won’t support it unless the price comes down,” CBS News reported on Thursday.

Earlier in the week, Sanders stated, “Let’s be crystal clear. If the bipartisan infrastructure bill is passed on its own on Thursday, this will be in violation of an agreement that was reached within the Democratic Caucus in Congress. More importantly, it will end all leverage that we have to pass a major reconciliation bill. That means there will be no serious effort to address the long-neglected crises facing the working families of our country, the children, the elderly, the sick and the poor.”

“It also means that Congress will continue to ignore the existential threat to our country and planet with regard to climate change,” he added. “I strongly urge my House colleagues to vote against the bipartisan infrastructure bill until Congress passes a strong reconciliation bill.”
