“Do Dems want a recession? A depression? How can they justify this?” Dan Crenshaw asked in a post as the Dems scuttled a rescue package for the American worker.
“This bill is critical for the livelihood of millions. Our country will be devastated without immediate help. Dems can lie all they want about ‘helping workers’ but now they are destroying their lives,” he added.
“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,” Mitch McConnell said ripping the Dems.
“Look, I can understand obstruction when you’re trying to achieve something,” McConnell added.
“This obstruction achieves nothing. Nothing whatsoever other than prevent 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.”
Other Republicans, along with President Trump, came forward to rip the left.
“Congress must approve the deal, without all of the nonsense, today. The longer it takes, the harder it will be to start up our economy. Our workers will be hurt!” President Trump posted.
“This is not about the ridiculous Green New Deal. It is about putting our great workers and companies BACK TO WORK!”
But it was Martha McSally who won the day with a simple idea that will absolutely work.
“If the Senate can’t come together in a time of great need, no Senator should receive a paycheck—like millions of Americans. If the urgent COVID-19 relief package fails again, I’m introducing a bill immediately to withhold Senators’ pay until Americans are put before politics,” she tweeted and based on the response America agrees with her.
