Late last night, Democrats voted to advance a $3.5 trillion budget framework.
Democrats in the Senate early Wednesday passed a $3.5 trillion budget framework with no support from Republicans, though its final passage is not assured.
The budget was advanced 50–49, with all votes in favor coming from Democrats or nominal independents who regularly vote with the left.
All Republicans voted against the budget except for Sen. Mike Rounds (R-S.D.). He is at the Mayo Clinic with his wife, Jean, who is undergoing cancer treatments, he said on Tuesday.
The budget was sponsored by Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), a self-described socialist who is chairman of the Senate Budget Committee.
Even though no Republicans voted for the bill, Marco Rubio pointed out it was the 19 RINOs that paved the way for this bill to be passed:
Republicans who helped pass the so called “infrastructure” bill yesterday shouldn’t go around expressing outrage about this monstrosity today
You knew passing the first bill paved the way for this one, and you decided to vote for it anyways https://t.co/C7B3zgVpby

Trump has responded.
He exposed just how bad this deal will be for the American people.
"Good morning, America! While you were all sleeping, the Radical Democrats advanced a plan that will be known as the $3.5 trillion Communist Plan to Destroy America. This legislation is an assault on our Nation, on our communities, and on the American Dream. pic.twitter.com/tB5vuoUutS
