For years I have been calling the elected officials as cowards…..simply because they do not have the capability to work for the people instead they bow and scrape to the high dollar donors who have nothing but contempt for us mere peasants.
Two prime examples are one Dem and one so-called Repub.
First, the biggest debate raging in DC these days is that of voting rights, something that should be a no brainer…..one Dem is holding the passage of a voters rights bill up in the Senate….
West Virginia Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin says the House’s sweeping voting reform bill known as the “For the People Act” will go “nowhere” in the Senate without bipartisan support.
The bill, also know as H.R. 1, was recently passed in the Democratic-controlled House and sent to the Senate with such provisions as increased access to absentee balloting and changes on campaign donations and the mapping of congressional districts.
The Senate is split 50-50 between Democrats and Republicans, with Democrats having the majority because Vice President Kamala Harris holds the tie-breaker. The dynamic has made Manchin, a moderate Democrat in a largely conservative state, a pivotal vote on most all measure. Meanwhile, Senate Democrats have used legislative maneuvers to pass measures by a simple, 51-vote majority and are considering similar maneuvers on upcoming measures.
A majority of the American people want election reform…but yet this slug is going to use bi-partisanship as an excuse to vote against it.
Who does he truly represent?
Next is a Repub…..
We have just had another mass shooting and as usual there is talk about gun reform while the people are focused on it…..but it will go nowhere in the Senate…..
Democrats were again reminded on Monday that Republicans will continue to obstruct legislation until the filibuster is reformed.
“Sen. Mitt Romney on Monday indicated he will not support attempts to tighten federal gun laws in the wake of recent back-to-back mass shootings, although he’s open to working with his colleagues on improving background check technology,” The Salt Lake Tribune reported after the Republican met with the newspaper’s editorial board.
“I made that commitment when I ran for office, and I intend to honor that commitment. So I will not be voting for new federal legislation related to guns and leave to the Legislature of Utah, closest to our people, any decisions they have in that regard,” Romney said.
“Some senators have said they see a potential open door for legislation expanding background checks in the aftermath of a pair of mass shootings, one killing eight people at several Georgia massage parlors and the other killing 10 at a Colorado supermarket. The two shootings occurred less than a week apart,” the newspaper reported. “But the Democratic lawmakers who are pushing for broader background checks need help from at least a few Republican senators to move the proposal forward. And despite his willingness to work across the aisle on certain issues, Romney has made clear he’s not behind federal gun control efforts advanced by Democrats.”

A majority want sensible gun reform and yet he will not support it.
Who does this slug truly represent?
Like I said COWARDS!
Who do these people work for?
Certainly not the people of this nation.
