Mitch McConnell and his cabal of Republican misers failed to pass a stimulus package. Rather than work with Democrats to get enough money in the package that would be enough to actually help people, the stingy repubs shut it down because what pittance they expected to help people pay rent and buy food, was in their minds, “too expensive.”

Wait until they see how expensive hundreds of thousands of homeless families are. How expensive the health care will be due to people losing the health insurance they had with their jobs that they lost due to COVID-19. Had Trump not purposely botched the COVID response, many of those people would still have their jobs, and therefore their insurance and homes.

In January when all the Republicans are marching out of the White House and Capitol with their boxes of things after they lose their jobs in November, they will hand the shattered pieces of their non-accomplishments for the American people over to President Biden and the new Democrats in Congress and the Senate to be put back together.
