Lindsey Graham wants to emulate Texas Democrats, suggests Republicans leave D.C. to block Biden – By Jon Skolnik (Salon) / July 19 2021
Republicans are looking for any way to block Democrats from passing a key priority of President Joe Biden’s agenda
Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., said on Sunday that he’d happily “leave town” in a bid to prevent Senate Democrats from approving President Biden’s $3.5 trillion infrastructure bill.
“I would leave before I would let that happen,” the senator said in a Fox News interview with host Maria Bartiromo.
“So, to my Republican colleagues, we may learn something from our Democratic friends in Texas when it comes to avoiding a $3.5 trillion tax-and-spend package,” he added, citing the Texas Democrats who left the state last week to deny Republicans attempting to pass a bill restricting voting access a quorum.
