Here it is from the Senate Majority Leader McConnell:

Democrats are filibustering programs in the bill which would keep people on the payroll, in an effort to obtain tax credits for wind and solar, force employers to give special concessions to big labor and demand new engine emissions for airlines. None of this has to do with the war on the Coronavirus. This should be addressed in separate legislation, NIMROD! You are clueless! Our Government was created by geniuses but is “now run by Idiots!”

“Democrats won’t let us fund hospitals or save small businesses unless they get to dust off the “Green New Deal”. WTF!

She killed the massive $1.8T spending bill designed to protect the economy and families from the coronavirus fallout! The Democrats are still playing politics and it will impact the future of the well being of American families. So Sad!

She wants to rewrite the bill to get more goodies in it for her colleagues, lobbyists and friends of the party. Same old bullshit by the party of obstruction, greed and insensitivity!


Of course she did liberals love seeing other Americans suffer and they're going to sit back and watch them suffer that's all they're doing

She seems to be waiting to be removed by force while people die. Which might be her. She should rethink.

You sit there and twiddle your thumbs while Rome burns. You should be outraged at the behavior of your Democrat leadership! But you would rather watch the city burn to the ground!

You and you comrades would rather see our nation fail than call out your leadership for their failure to work out in a bipartisan manner solutions to the Coronavirus battle!

Your Democrats are delaying the critically needed medical supplies from going to the Doctors and Nurses. People are dying while Schumer and Pelosi are grandstanding. This is no time for political maneuvering and trying to add bullshit to the legislation!

McConnell Explodes On Pelosi For Ruining Stimulus Bill That Protected Economy, Families
By Ryan Saavedra
DailyWire.com

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) unloaded on the Democratic leadership on Sunday for killing a massive $1.8 trillion spending bill to protect the economy and American families from the fallout of the coronavirus, which originated in China.


McConnell noted that the Democratic leadership, specifically House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), were the ones who killed the bill, which reportedly had strong bipartisan support. The bill would have provided direct payments of $1,200 to millions of Americans and provided numerous other benefits.

“The American people are watching this spectacle,” McConnell said. “I’m told the futures market is down 5%. I’m also told that that’s when trading stops. So the notion that we have time to play games here with the American economy and the American people is utterly absurd.”

“So I want to explain what just happened,” McConnell continued. “Our good friends on the other side would not have been disadvantaged one bit if this vote had succeeded because it would have required potentially 30 more hours of discussion, during which these seemingly endless negotiations could go on as long as they would like.”

“Now the build-up to this, so everybody fully understands, is that we had a high level of bipartisanship in five different working groups over the last 48 hours where members who were participating were reaching agreement,” McConnell continued. “And then all of a sudden the Democratic leader and the Speaker of the House shows up, and we’re back to square one. So, we’re fiddling here, fiddling with the emotions of the American people, fiddling with the markets, fiddling with our health care. The American people expect us to act tomorrow. And I want everybody to fully understand if we aren’t able to act tomorrow, it will be because of our colleagues on the other side continuing to dicker when the country expects us to come together and address this problem.”

“Now I changed my vote which gives me the opportunity to move to reconsider at a later time. That’s all I can do in the face of this obstruction. Look, I can understand obstruction when you’re trying to achieve something,” McConnell continued. “This obstruction achieves nothing. Nothing whatsoever other than preventing us from getting into a position where there are literally 30 more hours that they could use to continue to dicker. So at a time when the country is crying out for bipartisanship and cooperation — and we saw that over the last 48 hours when regular members of Senate, not in the leadership office, not in the speaker’s office for goodness sakes, she’s the Speaker of the House, not the speaker of the Senate. We don’t have one. We were doing just fine until that intervention.”

That means attorney general Barr would have to get off his ass and actually do something and so far all he's doing is placating to President Trump he's not doing anything to try to prosecute any of the people for the attempted coup on his presidency and now he's asking for more powers

They have failed to fulfill their oath of office which is:

I xxxx do solemnly swear to support and defend the constitution against all enemies foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same, that I will take this obligation freely and without mental reservation or purpose of evasion and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter. So help me God.

The Democrats have not faithfully discharged their duties. They have obstructed critically needed legislation designed to help those who are trying to save the businesses, jobs, lives of those infected, and lives of medical professionals trying to help innocent victims who have contracted this virus. This is no time for politics! Democrats deserve to be called out on this!

I can’t understand why the so called republicans voted for all the Progressive Ideas then voted for a fool who hasn’t given them one?
Time to recalculate.
Vote Progressive and put all your stuff back in your own pocket!
8 people own the wealth of half the country.
You should be trying harder to get your wealth back and not apologizing for ever having it.



Not hardly.
They tax, spend and we have nothing in our pocket.

It's OK. We don't need "help" from titsonaboarhog House Dems to deal with anything.

We'll have to go around them until they lose in November.


If they don't lose, this will continue.

They're losing by a big landslide in November. Americans will never forget the Democratic coup to try to bring down a duly elected president
