#1 Not a good look for congressional demoncrats to the workers they are supposed to be supporting.

They keep this up there will be historic losses for them in the house and senate in November.

#3 I think they're holding out for Thursday. That's when the new unemployment claims number comes out. It will be horrific, and they want to squeeze it for every vote they imagine they can get.

It's interesting how little the Dem candidates have to say. Bernie wants to prevent the pharma companies from making huge profits off the cure they haven't invented yet, Lizzie (who's out, of course) wants to create a giant federal bureaucracy to respond to the emergency, and Joe thinks his campaign for the Senate is going pretty well.

#6 Thanks chris and lex, but DV's point is key. The media is desperately trying to spin this against Trump, but this is the kind of problem Trump was made to solve. The Dems want to solve the problem in a way consistent with their own weird little ideologies, which nobody with his back to the wall gives a rat's tail about. Trump has no ideology, and is therefore free to use every trick there is to solve the problem. Right now he's looking like Ed Harris in Apollo 13.

#7 Darth Vader, I think you may underestimate the number and tenacity of "true believers" in abortion. I can only guess as to why, but for some people it is bound up with their identity.

#8 Fine, all democrats wanting abortion should be aborted like the inhuman little devils they are.

#10 Senate Democrats Block Coronavirus Stimulus After COVID-Linked GOP Absentees

It's almost as if the Progs want to crush the economy in an election year.

Leveraged by the perceived lethality of a "novel" Coronovirus (Jeez. I can actually spell it now. What the hell has happened to me in the past week?).

And I'd love to hear the story about why the hell the 5 absent Senators were not allowed to vote. Someone needs to do an Executive Order thingie (as allowed by law.) and get their voices heard. Except for Romney.

#11 Yes, it's becoming obvious that, unlike the 2009 H1N1 pandemic, with Trump in the White House the opposition party is perfectly happy to
kill the economy,
cause mass unemployment,
plunge hundreds of thousands, even millions, of small businesses into bankruptcy,
destroy the savings of tens of millions of households,
and ruin the hopes of another generation of Americans --

... all of this in order to bring down the president they hate.

This thing is unlikely to be significantly worse than the pandemic that occurred when Obama was in the White House.

This absurd overreaction is a combination of hysterically conformist behavior and insane, cynical political calculation.
