They were smoking crack in the House of Representatives when they passed a stand-alone $2k stimulus bill. Mitch McConnell was livid, declaring the nonsense they cobbled together “does not align with what President Trump has suggested” and “has no realistic path to quickly pass the Senate.”
Senate declares 2k stimulus DOA
The snarky piece of legislation which Democrats all jumped to dole out is a perfect example of the “free bread and circuses” allegedly doled out by the Roman senate just before the population burned Rome to the ground.
Democrats don’t live on the same planet as everyone else. Republican Mitch McConnell, who happens to be the Senate Majority Leader, declared their taxpayer abusing $2k stimulus package dead on arrival.
It doesn’t matter to McConnell that RINO’s in the senate betrayed their constituents, “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.”
President Donald Trump was furious that the lions share of the stimulus money from the prior package was being sent overseas, while the Americans who were expecting a lifeline were tossed a few crumbs of bread. It wasn’t fair, the president insisted.
Democrats didn’t hear what the president said, they heard what they wanted to hear, and took it as a green light to waste even more of the taxpayer’s money on proper stimulus payments after they already spent the money in Pakistan.
McConnell won’t stand for it. “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.”
No realistic path
The House stimulus bill simply “does not align with what President Trump has suggested” and “has no realistic path to quickly pass the Senate.” Newt Gingrich disagrees.
On Wednesday morning the turncoat tweeted, “People get it. Billions for the banks, billions for big companies, but we can’t find $2000 for everyday Americans.” He’s terrified that he could lose the seats in Georgia over it. He just wants to light as much money on fire as it takes to save his bacon.
“Six days before the most important run off in American history is no time to be engaged in clever parliamentary maneuvers which everyone in America will see through. A complicated bill is a maneuver to kill a $2000 payment 80% of Americans favor. And they will know it.”
Actually Newt, Americans fully understand that they should have got 2k from the first bill while the foreigners got the dirty end of the stimulus stick. The move by the House was a political dirty trick which only throws good money after bad.
Gingrich has been reduced to begging for the Senate to bow down to the whims of the New World Order and simply spend the stimulus money.
He wants your grandchildren to see the kind of inflation where a wheel barrow full of cash barely buys a loaf of bread. “I would beg him to bring up $2,000 payment as a free-standing independent vote, and have people like Sens. Loeffler and Perdue come back and vote for it.”
