The GOP Gets More Pathetic

Since 1980 I have thought he GOP was a pathetic excuse for a political party….they lean on cultural BS instead of policies.

But with the passage of the American Rescue Plan has brought about a news dimension of pathetic.

Like one of my Senators from the state of Mississippi, Roger Wicker. (of cortse he is a GOPer and a Trump sycophant)…..after the signing of the ARP he takes a victory lap…..

After voting against the $1.9 trillion American Rescue Plan, GOP Sen. Roger Wicker was singing its praises.

“Independent restaurant operators have won $28.6 billion worth of targeted relief,” he tweeted after the bill passed in the House on Wednesday, after previously passing the Senate.

“This funding will ensure small businesses can survive the pandemic by helping to adapt their operations and keep their employees on the payroll,” Wicker added.

Typical!  Even though he voted against the bill he wants to head off any blowback for his vote since 75% of America likes the bill (trying to save his worthless political ass)….

The GOP just cannot accept that with all their misinformation and the bill is still extremely popular with ALL Americans…..

Acting as if these goodies have no added benefit to the average American—or, rather, hurt the average American—is absurd, and it’s an absurdity that the GOP’s own constituents aren’t even buying.

This from a party that claims to be the “party of the working class”….how damn absurd is that?

  1. Is he just assuming that his constituents won’t know that he voted against it, or that they are still afraid of his fellow guy, Trent Lott (is he still there)?

    1. Trent Lott is now a lobbyist….we Americans seem to have a short span for our memory and besides it is Mississippi and they are not reliable voters. chuq
