Trump-Virus Relief State-of-Play

Amply be-chinned #MoscowMitch McConnell

If you need a reminder, amply be-chinned Mitch McConnell was not involved in any of the negotiations for a relief bill, and Republican Senators have been saying for weeks that probably 20 or so of their ranks would not vote for any bill.

“I think if Mitch can get half the conference, that’d be quite an accomplishment,” Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) said.

Anyway, our failed political press is both-sides’ing the hell outta this:

#Moscowmitch sent the Senate Home, so there will be no vote even if there is a break-through. Meanwhile, Prznint Art-of-the-Deal has not gotten involved. Hmmm…

    The dims, like always, gave away what little leverage they had back in the spring when the first ‘Rona stimulus bill was passed and all of the morally bankrupt republicans know it. The wealthy and the corporations all got their slush funds to keep the wall st. house of cards economy stable, so fuck everyone else. Since their wall st. donors and oligarchic masters all got paid, mitch and his lackeys can now go out and complain about our staggering debts and deficits without the failed beltway media once attributing such financial malfeasance to their political cult, thus leaving dims with ‘thoughts and prayers’ for their impoverished constituents.

    Another futile effort by Pelosi and Schumer to act civil with terrorists and to not make too many demands in accordance with some outdated sense of decorum that republicans continually trash that amounts to Lucy pulling the football away from Charlie Brown.

    You would think that in an election year, some cash for the voters might go a long way. I would think anyway, but that is the problem I see, they don’t think, about anything at all really.
    They can push through cash for billionaires without any real argument but cash for working people is “Just a Horrible Thing” and must be stopped or turned into a slush fund, at all costs, even reelection.
    I know that the average voter has a minuscule memory but I do so hope that this time their skinflint ways will come to bite them in the ass come November. So many Congress Critters not helping their citizens while in dire need.
    I have an idea, let’s hold some Town Halls with the reluctant Senators and Congressmen. I’d bet their voters would have a lot to say right now. And it won’t be suggestions for color schemes in the White House.
    I’m not even hurting now, but so very many are, their games must stop.

      Sorry, but they are counting on people to think it’s all the Dems fault. It’ll work with a lot of people, too. Their pet papers will totally forget to mention, until the last paragraph, that the Republican head of the Senate just sent everyone home rather than show any urgency about bailing out the people whose lifeboats they have been shooting full of holes.
      Pretty sure the local trend is going to be that those Dems won’t vote for a relief bill so we gotta vote for LDN, who is doing a terrific job.

      Vote.
      Jesus Christ of legend is not on the ballot, so don’t waste your time and vote looking for the perfect candidate, just vote for someone other than Hitler cos-players.

    The cruelty is deliberate, and it’s even being encouraged in “certain circles,” IFYKWIM, and it’s all because the dissonance is being ignored. They will continue to think, and to hope, and to act as if this Virus will decimate only the Dims, and allowing it to just “blaze through the population” is the best they can do for all involved.

    After all, we must look to the future, and if millions of deaths results in billions of savings, in terms of Social Safety Net spending, then so be it.
