The GQP has climbed up the tree and now must get down by themselves. The headline below underscores that they had nothing, zero, zip to do with the good news:
“It was just last month when American Airlines announced it was sending furlough notices to roughly 13,000 employees. Within a few hours of Congress passing the Democratic COVID relief package, the company reversed course, saying those workers can now stay on the job.
“A letter from American Airlines executives read, ‘To those who had received notices warning of furloughs: those are happily canceled — you can tear them up!’
“…Following up on yesterday’s coverage, it’s not often Congress passes a law on a Wednesday, and by Thursday afternoon, tens of thousands of American jobs have been saved. And yet, that’s precisely what happened this week.”
That’s what I would call Checkmate.
