This Is a Moral Disaster for the Country. It's a Political Disaster for Republicans.

The Senate has allowed boosted unemployment benefits to expire as the pandemic rages and jobless claims are on the rise.

If you're looking for a new barometer of congressional dysfunction, look no further than the fact that The World's Foremost Legislative Institution has failed to protect even its own members and their staffs from the pandemic. It's not just that many offices, not just Louie Gohmert's, are apparently run like chicken-processing plants. It's also that Congress reportedly "ran out of money dedicated to cleaning the sprawling complex" over a month ago, and the money to start keeping the place COVID-19-level-sanitary again is tied up in the wrangling over the next relief package.

I was on twitter where rumpers are freaking out. I hardly go on fb but i have a friend who’s aunt is all in with rump & the queen of fox talking points & she’s freaking out. Could this be the item -$600 - that breaks the camel’s back with loyalty to the party?

Meanwhile, the GOP has stuffed all kinds of pork into the bill, such as billions for fighter jets, etc., while Mitt Romney throws his TRUST Act, which harms Social Security, onto the table.

Deplorables are not happy.

[quote] Deplorables are not happy.

They're never happy, but I do wonder if this is what will make them finally turn against their beloved GOP.

A shit party for shit people. Seriously they just need to disband. Absolutely useless, every fucking one of them.

I don't see the Republicans surviving in 10 years. They have nothing to offer younger generations.

by Anonymousreply 607/31/2020

I don’t see them surviving 10 weeks.

They just pulled the plug on working families just to make a political point.

"Deplorables are not happy."

The reason we can't allocate the funds is that so much money was spent on security and clean-up after the BLM and ANTIFA riots that money is scarce. The democrats are preventing the public from getting the funds they need to survive. Joe Biden said that he was in favor of handing out no relief to the general public so that reparations could be paid to black people. So, if you can't survive, blame the Democrat socialists and Joe Biden.

The deplorables are going to up in arms come Monday.

The American political system is broken. The fact that the Senate went home without solving the unemployment benefits plan on which 30 million people are dependent is an utter disgrace.

How has Europe, Canada and many of the Asian countries are either coping or have managed the virus? Are other countries and their political parties fighting as much as is happening in the U.S.? Are the people of other countries going without additional unemployment benefits...in other words, the $600 extra or whatever the amount is agreed up by other countries? The extra benefits in the U.S. are now expired. Has this happened elsewhere?

Another sign that "the country," including the Republican base, is not the GOP's constituency. I figured out as long ago as the Bush years that their interests lay in a kind of plutocracy that ignored national boundaries—their nativism is strictly for rube consumption on election days. They just want to get themselves richer and richer. Trump, with his deals with oligarchs and Saudi princes and so on, is just one glaring example. If Putin helps, fine; if China helps, fine; if chaos and deprivation in their base helps, fine. Their loyalties are to their own superwealthy class and not to the country.

“The fact that the Senate went home without solving the unemployment benefits plan on which 30 million people are dependent is an utter disgrace.“

This is so screwed up. They are supposed to represent the people. Of America.

Instead they service their foreign oligarch donors. It’s maddening.

I blame those FOX News morons -- scourge of the nation.

It's all Obama's fault. I take no responsibility.

Deplorables won't be able to connect the dots, two dots really, from A to B, and see that the reason their benefits have run out is because of the GOP.

We will always have the Special Ed 10-15% with us. Though it should be noted, they can dumbly be on our side too if the DP really wants it.

That shitty political cartoon doesn't even make any sense!

"Government" isn't broken, "Republicans keep destroying government and the Dems cannot fix it fast enough!"

That's what you must have meant!

R15 something tells me they will figure this one out.

To be fair, at least chicken-processing plants produce something useful.
