#MoscowMitch Still Trying To Kill Covid Relief Bill

Amply be-chinned Mitch McConnell campaigns using Gravestones, bullets, or butt plugs to symbolize bills he has killed!

The Republicans keep inserting razor blades into the apple:

Hill negotiators race to finalize Covid relief deal as fight over Federal Reserve bogs down talks

“Negotiations moved at a rapid pace late into Friday night and Saturday as congressional leaders race to finalize a long-awaited Covid-19 relief deal, but they are struggling to resolve a major sticking point over the Federal Reserve’s power to intervene in the US economy.

“Talks are now intensely focused on whether Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and GOP Sen. Pat Toomey can resolve the dispute over the Federal Reserve’s emergency lending authority — and the fate of a deal, and whether one can be approved before government funding expires Sunday night, hangs in the balance.”

So what’s the issue, you ask?

“The big hangup is a dispute over whether to rein in the Federal Reserve’s emergency lending authority. Republicans argue that the emergency lending program created under the March CARES law needs to be wound down as envisioned by that law, saying leaving it open would amount to a slush fund for the incoming Biden administration.

“But Democrats argue that the authority is essential to continue to prop up the economy and say that the provision — pushed chiefly by Toomey — would tie the hands of President-elect Joe Biden’s team.”

“How can we knee-cap the next administration,” amply be-chinned Mitch McConnell did not wail, “if you don’t let us have our way?”

    Apparently, a LOT of Dims voted for Mitch, besides, as well:

    Mitch NEVER won in Elliott or Wolfe Kentucky. But in 2020 he won these counties with mind boggling results
    WOLFE COUNTY Mitch Votes=1912
    Registered GOP=943
    McGrath Votes=945
    Registered Dems=4527
    ELLIOTT COUNTY Mitch=1958
    Registered GOP=860
    McGrath=868
    Registered Dems=4276

    I’d like to call “Major Shenanigans,” but it’s too late. It’s NEVER too late to investigate, though.

    Even if Trump won’t admit it, the Republicans know that they’ve lost and may lose two seats in Georgia, so they’ve got to shovel all the shit onto the incoming Biden administration to guarantee as much chaos as possible. Also, Mitch will never willingly give aid to those who need it most. Also, Senate Republicans won’t step one foot past Mitch. So, we’re screwed for now.
