Needless Cruelty is the Agenda of the GOP

Amply be-chinned #MoscowMitch McConnell

That the Republicans are the problem is not just speculation, it now is a law of physics. Anyway, we present one more entry into the proof syllogism!

Politico:

“What I thought was a mistake was the bonus we added that small businesses all over the country are saying make it more lucrative to not work than to work. That’s exactly the opposite of what we want to do,” McConnell said. The GOP leader also vowed to end enhanced unemployment benefits on a recent call with House Republicans.

Forty million Americans are out of work, so tell us please who’s hiring, Mitch?

Pay attention to what amply be-chinned, multi-millionaire (Ol’ Mitch, who has never worked a day in his life in the private sector is worth $35M Ameros!) #MoscowMitch is doing to you, Possum Hollar, and not for you.

  1. Today’s paper had a LTTE complaining about how wonderful those lucky duckies on funemployment are doing, why according to his math they’re making $21 an hour!

    Clearly the beatings must begin again!

      Here in Floriduh, if you add up all the hours working to get onto the website, get through all the red tape and get an approval (if you’re really lucky) the benefits come to less than minimum wage.

      BDR – Morale certainly hasn’t improved any, so there’s another reason to resume with the whip.

      And I think Mitch’s thinking goes along the lines of “My precious job-creators can’t possibly create any jobs under this kind of stress, knowing their former workers are getting rich just sitting on their collective asses at home.” He assumes that these companies are not just willing, but eager to hire or rehire, and return to work, but due to such an abrupt and absolute upheaval in the Economy, we’re in financial quicksand; if we remain still for now, we might not sink any further, and someone may finally come along and save us. But the wrong moves will only mire us further, and perhaps even have us sink out of sight.

      It’s such a bizarre situation – people don’t wanna work, and the companies don’t wanna hire, he can’t fathom it. And no Republicon ever thought “free money” is a splendid idea, even if it’s just temporary, to tide a person and his family over, until economic conditoins improve.

    It’s the law of supply and demand, silly. Once enough people demand jobs then magically jobs will appear thanks to the IHOTFM.

    Please, stop saying Rich Mitch ‘is worth $35m’ That may be how much he has but he is by no stretch of the imagination ‘worth’ that much

    Actually, I think this idiotic position could be fatal for him this November. It’s a pure, economic Eff-you to the people of his State.

  6. Time and time again, I wonder what planet some of these so-called politicians are on. Why do they have such contempt for people who aren’t as privileged as they are? It truly boggles the mind.

      • Aw, I’ve missed you too! I’ve been here, I was just laying low and burying my head in the sand – which I won’t be doing anymore! Silence is what these politicians and morally-challenged people want, but not anymore.

      Surely they just don’t want us getting used to nice things, like, y’know, meals every day. If we get used to that, then how will we feed ourselves when they stop putting out food for us? Wait, no, that’s abandoned cats I’m thinking of. Although Moscow Mitch and company probably don’t see much difference.

    The problem with people making more on unemployment that via minimum wage isn’t that unemployment is paying too much. It’s that minimum wage is too low.
    The last time I made minimum wage was in 1976 and I made 5.25 per hour. According to https://www.usinflationcalculator.com/ that is $23.66 in 2020 dollars. What part of that is confusing?
