  • If the Republicans weren’t playing politics, then why did McConnell only allow Republicans to create the bailout bill. A non-partisan unified effort means both parties create the bill together. It is pure politics to have only Republicans draw up the bill and then criticize Dems for wanting make changes critical to the voters Dems represent. McConnell doesn’t believe that all voters should have a voice; only those who support his party. Hey, why don’t we follow China, Cuba, N. Korea etc. and declare all parties but the Republican as illegal. That would drop the charade of having a democracy.

  • From the people who gave us Adam Schiff, the Squad, Mazie Hirono, Der Schumerglower, and the scowling faces sitting out the States of the Union addresses, we have political silliness.
