Republicans are scum

"As the official spokes-germ for scum everywhere, we deny being as toxic as the GOP. We view ourselves as merely the harmless massing of dirt and debris - wholly harmless in small quantities to the general public.

Republicans and republicanism is proven infectious and can be fatal to men, beasts, and the planet itself."

This is akin to slicing your Achilles' tendon, then complaining about not being able to run anymore.

The Republican Party seems determined to end America.

I guess this is how the confederacy wins.

Whether they are up for reelection or not make sure their names are front and center for people to know who they are and what they stand for. Every time they're interviewed over the next year, the first question should be, "so why were you so unwilling to help out your fellow Americans, Senator."

Translation: A clear majority of Senators will vote for it.

The GOP voters will not remember. They only care about sticking it to the liberals, even that means they shoot themselves in the foot.

If 15 - 20 GOP Senators are balking it's because they want some SOMETHING IN RETURN.

They're holding out to the last minute for the best offer.

IOW, it's another one of those "hostage situations."

#13 - The oligarchs could be of great use, here. Bezos could buy the USPS and Musk could send Trump to Mars.

Take their health coverage away from them. Let's see how they feel when they get a taste of what it's like living in the covid economy.

Why should they?

They got all the greedy little goodies they wanted in the first bill including the repeal of the 7.5% excise tax on private jets.

They gave away billions to the top 10% in the first bill and suddenly $600 unemployment benefits is "too much".

If Moscow Mitch wants the bill to pass, he better come up with something to appeal to democrats to replace those greedy goppers.

They all know Dementia Donny is going away and don't care if the economy collapses further.

No they're balking because Pelosi won't negotiate a package without the real estate tax deduction for wealthy democrat doners

So why is Mitch McConnell lying and telling people they will not vote for any package?

Come on Redial.

That Pelosi talking points was all Fishpuss was given.

You can't actually expect him to answer something so straightforward.

He needs time for someone else to tell him how to respond.
