While politicians continue to collect paychecks, many Americans are realizing are being told today they are being laid off or outright fired.
The reality is setting in that many small business owners may never be able to open their doors again.
While all of this is going on, Congress continues to delay the stimulus these people have been promised, all so leadership can push political agendas rather than create a simple, dry bill that will address the crisis at hand.
The Schumer and Pelosi Effect
By all reports, the legislation negotiations were going very well up until Democrat leadership showed up.
Senate Majority McConnell (R-KY) stated, “We had a high level of bipartisanship in five different working groups. …And then all of a sudden the democratic leader and the speaker of the house show up.
“I want everybody to fully understand if we aren’t able to act tomorrow, it’ll be because of our colleagues on the other side.”
When asked what is taking so long, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) threw darts at Republicans for making the legislation partisan.
He stated, “The legislation has many problems. At the top of the list, it includes a large corporate bailout with no protections for workers and virtually no oversight.”
What really is happening we honestly may never know, because everyone here seems intent on scoring political points and pushing agendas rather than helping workers and small business owners for a crisis that was created by the government.
If we want to be completely honest, all of this should have been in place before ordering a shutdown.
Instead, Congress was tied up with the impeachment.
Perhaps if the bogus impeachment, which Dems knew was doomed from the outset, had been pushed back or never happened, Congress could have had a stimulus package in place BEFORE our country was shut down.
You want to blame someone… gather everyone up in D.C. and point the finger at every single one of them.
The moment travel was shut down from China and a national health emergency was declared, Congress should have been hard at work putting together legislation for what they all say they saw coming.
Instead, it is now March 23, a week after the shutdown, and they are all still bickering about what should and should not be in this legislation.
