In the history of mankind, many republics have risen, have flourished for a less or greater time, and then have fallen because their citizens lost the power of governing themselves and thereby of governing their state. TR


McConnell signals $2,000 relief checks are not going to happen

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell signaled that $2,000 stimulus checks will not pass the Senate, insisting on either more-targeted aid or that the checks be considered along with provisions President Trump supports but Democrats oppose.

“The Senate is not going to split apart the three issues that President Trump linked together just because Democrats are afraid to address two of them. The Senate is not going to be bullied into rushing out more borrowed money into the hands of Democrats rich friends who don’t need the help,” he said.

Those provisions include an investigation into corruption in the 2020 campaign and lifting protections for social media companies from being sued based on what their users write.

Many Republicans oppose the checks. So it seems that this is designed not to achieve a consensus on a bill.

  1. Those $2,000 checks would not go to “Democrats’ rich friends”, but to Americans hurt by the continual shutdowns. Congress was going to spend all that money anyway, so it is not asking much for them to share it with the citizens they collect it from.

    McConnell and other Republicans are sealing the fate of their party. After the fiasco of the new H-1B bill McConnell rushed through as soon as the election was over, we could see the writing on the wall. Then McConnell told the GOP senators not to object to the contested electors. Now, he is refusing to help Americans while shipping billions to wasteful projects overseas.

    I will NEVER vote “party” to help the GOP again. From now on, I’ll vote against every incumbent as a matter of course. And if this theft of the presidential election is allowed to stand, I doubt I will vote in national elections, because they will all be rigged one way or the other.
