So, I just come up with the answer to the Republicans voting against the 1.9 trillion

 

We know this Bill will pass with only Democrats putting name to the affirmative vote

 

I propose that all states must have their senators sign for the stimulus package before getting it

 

Meaning they would actually have their names to accepting the money

 

Not quite a vote for, but they would have to admit they wanted it.

 

I wonder how many states would not sign it? It would certainly cause problems in those states.

 

Of course Bidden would not do that, but darn, I would love to see it happen.

Yep. And the amount drops in proportion to the population of the states that opt out.....

 

All 50 Republican senators decline and the number is now closer to 1 Trillion.....they go back to their constituents and tell them how they "stood against Socialism"....everybody in those states dons their red MAGA dunce caps and wave American flags while shouting USA! USA!

 

Everybody wins....except of course for the millions of people in Red states who desperately need the benefits of the Relief Bill. But a small price to pay for "Freedom!", amirite?

Or keep it at $1.9T, but the money from drop out States gets distributed among those who accept it. Might see the stimulus cheques get to $2000 that way. Heck, could get pretty close to $3000 for every Blue State citizen, if none of the Republicans accepted the money.

For sure.

 

The reason I proposed lowering for opt out states is so that GOP Governor's can tell their constituents that they "saved taxpayer money". Otherwise, there's zero incentive....

It would be nice if she would just not open her mouth at all.

 

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene refers to Guam as a foreign country that doesn't deserve aid

After a member of the U.S. House of Representatives referred to Guam as a foreign country that doesn't deserve aid, Adelup stated it can send along some educational reading. 

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, a Republican representative for Georgia's 14th congressional district, included Guam when listing foreign nations that receive American tax dollars, the American Independent reported. 

 

"We believe our hard-earned tax dollars should just go for America, not for what? China, Russia, Middle East, Guam, whatever, wherever," Greene said during the recent Conservative Political Action Conference 2021 in Florida. 

Krystal Paco-San Agustin, Adelup spokesperson, responded: "We would be more than happy to send Rep. Greene's office a copy of Destiny's Landfall: A History of Guam."

Interesting comments from former Trump Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci...."The Mooch" is critical of the GOP voting en masse against the Covid Relief Bill and in doing so, made a comment that I found interesting:

 

The Government, in his estimation, should be viewed as a "blunt instrument". When tackling things like Stimulus or wars (his examples) governments need to take a broad brush approach to the problem.

 

In essence, it comes down to a binary question: Is the country and it's citizens better off with, or without the bill in it's present form? If the answer is "yes", (which it is, in Scaramucci's opinion) then Representatives should vote for it.

 

Of course, we know that zero Republicans voted for it. This basically proves that they're more concerned about opposing Biden's initiatives than they are about doing what's right for the American people.....but of course, we already knew that....:rolleyes:

Bernie has it correct, the dem's need to push through as much as they can, any way they can, and forget about working with the republicans for the next two years because it may not be as easy after the next set of mid-terms. 

 

There is no working with these people. Its hard enough to get the democrats voting as a group.

Trump: “I’ve done more in 47 months than Joe has in 47 years”

 

Joe: “and now I will do more in 47 days than he has in 47 months!”

 

Imo Joe hasn't had to be all that impressive to accomplish this. Much has just been reversing the damage Trump did.

Especially if it’s actually true, as that would mean Joe’s done more in the last 47 days than he did in the previous 47 years.

 

I mean, c’mon man. ;)

One thinks the BULL$&!#TER can not spew anymore ridiculous crap than he has already has and then he come out with this " I hope everyone remembers when they are getting the Covid 19 vaccine that if I wasn't president,you wouldn't be getting that beautiful shot for 5 years,at best, and probably wouldn't be getting it at all".

 

 

From the office of donald j trump 

 

This from the man whose actions had a huge influence on the deaths of more American citizens than all of their wars combined.

Who downplayed the virus at every turn.

Who advised people to inject disinfectant into their bodies.

 

I know people will keep believing his crap however it just so pisses me off that so many Americans are that stupid.

That was very interesting. I wonder how similar it was to the study done earlier here in Vancouver as far as the people chosen to participate. It shows that there might be a much more economical and humane wayto deliver services to some groups.

Sad, but true. Bi-partisanship has gone out the window. Despite the Covid bill being  extremely popular with Americans in general, the Repugs vote against it, 'cause "reasons"....

 

What an effing clown show...<_<

They're not just voting against as principle but wasting time on useless votes...especially MTG with other Repugs now calling her out as a pain in the ass.

I just wanted to quote you here because this can’t be over-emphasized. My worry is that the dems may cause more damage to their cause than the Republicans. Think two years not four as their opportunity to get their agenda through.

The Dems have a long history of snatching defeat in the face of victory.

Same here in Aus.

Last election labour seemed like a shoo-in and then some evangelical cult member  nutbag lead the Conservatives to a win.
