Why the GOP Senate fiddles while America dies. “I don’t know what we’re trying to accomplish.”

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Imagine you are Jeff Bezos, the $175 billion man. Your children are starving. They ask you for $10 so they can buy some food. You debate about whether to offer even $2.

That is the GOP Senate, today.

Parties remain divided over virus aid package
Some Republicans balk over price tag as deadline looms
By Lisa Mascaro Associated Press

WASHINGTON — The differences over the next coronavirus aid package are vast: Democrats propose $3 trillion in relief and Republicans have a $1 trillion counteroffer. At stake are millions of Americans’ jobless benefits, school reopenings and eviction protections.

Given that the federal government already has demonstrated it has unlimited money, and that infusions of money protect the economy and the people of America, why the reluctance to spend?

Striking any agreement between Congress and President Donald Trump by Friday’s deadline for expiring aid will be daunting.

“We cannot afford to fail,” Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer said.

The outcome will be a defining one for the president and the parties heading into the November election as an uneasy nation is watching and waiting for Washington to bring some end to the health crisis and devastating economic fallout.

Given that adding dollars to the economy will stimulate economic growth, and a growing economy will benefit Trump’s re-election chances, why is it the Democrats who wish to spend and the Republicans who are reluctant?

Key to the debate is the $600 weekly unemployment benefit bump that is expiring for millions of jobless Americans.

Republicans want to slash it to $200 a week as an incentive to push people back to work.

Given that millions of people are out of work, not because they quit, but were fired, and there are not enough jobs available to hire them back, why do Republicans insist there is a need or even a way to “push people back” to non-existent jobs?

Defending cuts to unemployment assistance, Republicans said the federal supplement is too generous, on top of state benefits, and people should not be paid more while they are at home than they would if they were on the job.

Given that giving Americans more money will allow them to spend more, which will help American businesses survive, why are Republicans concerned that the federal supplement is “too generous”?

With the virus death toll climbing and 4.2 million infections nationwide, both parties are eager for relief.

There is some agreement that more money is needed for virus testing, to help schools prepare to open in the fall and to shore up small businesses.

Half the Republican senators are expected to oppose any bill.

They warned against caving to liberal demands and worried the price tag will balloon past $1 trillion.

The Republicans come to the negotiating table hobbled by infighting and delays. Conservative Republicans quickly broke ranks, arguing the spending was too much and priorities misplaced.

“It’s a mess,” said Sen. Josh Hawley, R-Mo. “I don’t know what we’re trying to accomplish.”

Those words, “I don’t know what we’re trying to accomplish,” will live in infamy, for that is exactly the situation. Here are what seem to be the Republican goals.

  1. Re-elect themselves.
  2. Re-elect Trump.
  3. Grow the economy.
  4. “Open” the economy.
  5. Get people back to work.

But they want to accomplish the above without:

  1. Aiding consumers so they will spend more.
  2. Aiding schools so they can create virus-free environments.
  3. Aiding states so they can, in turn, aid their counties and cities.
  4. More virus testing.
  5. Demanding mask-wearing.
  6. Offering any kind of unified recovery plan.
  7. Doing anything liberals might like.
  8. Benefitting the poor and middle-income groups.

When you don’t know what you are trying to accomplish, there is no hope you ever will accomplish it.

There are two steps Congress and the President could take that very quickly would return America to some semblance of normal:

  1. Pump dollars into the pockets of consumers.
  2. Universal mask-wearing.

With regard to mask-wearing, the fault lies directly at the feet of the President. Recently there appeared an article that read like this:

Shops: No shoes, no shirt, no service.
People: OK. No problem.

Traffic Laws: Wear a seatbelt in a car or be ticketed. No drinking and driving.
People: OK. No problem.

OSHA; At work in a dangerous place you must wear safety gear.
People: OK. No problem.

Airlines: You must be seated, with your seatbelt buckled and your tray table up. No smoking.
People: OK. No problem.

Do not go down the “up” escalator.
People: OK. No problem.

TSA: Remove your shoes & belt; empty your pockets; put your luggage on the belt; and go through the X-ray machine.
People: OK. No problem.

Schools: Children are not allowed to bring guns into the school.

Food processor: No animals allowed in a food facility.
Workers: OK. No problem.

Today’s stores: Please wear a mask to reduce the risk of infecting others and yourself with the deadly CORONA virus.
People: Don’t try to take away my rights and freedoms. If the President doesn’t have to wear a mask, neither do I.

Way back, on May 5th, 2020, we published:

The surprisingly simple way to open America in 14 days and avoid a depression.
COVID-19 transmits primarily through the air by droplets. Stop the droplets and you stop the transmission. The incubation period is 14 days. If everyone wore a mask, even just a simple cloth mask, the virus would cease to be transmitted in two weeks.

The was 2 1/2 months ago, and nothing that has happened since, to change the prescription.

Even without social distancing, even with handwashing, even without scrubbing down facilities, even without a cure or a vaccine, the simple act of universal mask-wearing would create a kind of “herd immunity” that would end the disaster.

Yet here we are, still fiddling. And America is burning.

The most important problems in economics involve:

  1. Monetary Sovereignty describes money creation and destruction.
  2. Gap Psychology describes the common desire to distance oneself from those “below” in any socio-economic ranking, and to come nearer those “above.” The socio-economic distance is referred to as “The Gap.”

Wide Gaps negatively affect poverty, health and longevity, education, housing, law and crime, war, leadership, ownership, bigotry, supply and demand, taxation, GDP, international relations, scientific advancement, the environment, human motivation and well-being, and virtually every other issue in economics. Implementation of Monetary Sovereignty and The Ten Steps To Prosperity can grow the economy and narrow the Gaps:

Ten Steps To Prosperity:

1. Eliminate FICA

2. Federally funded Medicare — parts A, B & D, plus long-term care — for everyone

3. Social Security for all or a reverse income tax

4. Free education (including post-grad) for everyone

5. Salary for attending school

6. Eliminate federal taxes on business

7. Increase the standard income tax deduction, annually. 

8. Tax the very rich (the “.1%”) more, with higher progressive tax rates on all forms of income.

9. Federal ownership of all banks

10.Increase federal spending on the myriad initiatives that benefit America’s 99.9% 

The Ten Steps will grow the economy and narrow the income/wealth/power Gap between the rich and the rest.

    The greatest problem is those wanting to cram and jam the swab up your nose until they open skin inside your nose so that those getting the test will become infected with the Covid virus already on the swab ! The tests are full of Covid viruses and many nurses have come forward telling that the test kits coming from Wuhan or China that the media bragged about were never used in patients noses , but was sent off to test the kits and they are coming back positive with Covid results . Nurses in our local hospitals have come forth with proofs that they are infecting people with the Bill Gates 2006 patented Covid bio- weapon virus that Fouchi had Wuhan in 2016 make up viles and arosols of Covid for later uses . These evil bastards have used innocent people ( nurses and doctors ) whom they indoctrinated with scare tactics that this is a must do solution to save the people . This matter needs to have [everyone] involved exposed who have been involved with this fear porn and distribution of the infected test kits . They cause the people who also received the fear porn by the media which is owned by the evil elites to run to test centers and wait for nurses and doctors to jam swabs that are infected with the covid virus up their noses causing them also to become infected . This is crimes against humanity ! They need to be found and tried and once proven guilty of knowingly committing this evil on the citizens of the world , execute them ! At the top you will find the new world order Esau Edomite Jews , the UN Ishmaelites and Obama who is also an Ishmaelite and his health care that allows euthanasia for the elderly , the sick and those now drawing back their money for retirement that they had put into the system for many years hoping to get it back with interest . But these bastards want it in their pockets . Nursing homes were forced to take in infected victims of the elderly . Why ? Because they needed someone to blame for the infected people that they had given shots too with the Covid virus to cover their asses ! This virus we were told was A systematic . Meaning it does not go from person to person . The infected blood must get into the other persons blood stream to infect them . We have been told so many lies ! These evil bastards needs to pay for their murders and crippling of innocent people who believed in their fear porn and took the tests or the shots ! They are murdering the citizens of the world ! Look up the 2020-2030 UN agenda to depopulate the earth . Look up Bill Gates bragging about depopulating the earth with untested vaccines . Look up the new world order Georgia Guide Stones that wants 95% of earth’s population killed ! Now they have threatened Trump to back off and allow terriost to destroy America with looting , burning and murdering . Then tell those that stand up for themselves we the people are wrong for trying to protect ourselves against the thugs committing act of terrorism against us . We need to defund these bastards and bomb the hell out of them if they seek to retaliate against us ! Round up their UN and new world order troops and ship them out of America or whatever other country that they are marching in ! They have gone to far with their devil kill all agenda ! And the Esau Edomite Jews are going to be exterminated according to Obediah chapter one for their evils against the world and Jacob Israel’s descendants . Once the elect of GOD are removed then those left will have hell to deal with. Even the devil will be among them and will be seeking out those that will not worship him ! Get a chance read Revelation 12 . We have passed the great sign day of September 23 2017 that happened over Jerusalem at dawn . The time clock has started for the count down to end evil upon earth . Soon after we finish with the asteroids that they say are now coming around September of this year , according to Matthew 24:29-31 the earth will see darkness as the sun and moon are darkened from the dust thrown into the atmosphere and stars will be falling from the sky to earth making havoc all over the world . Soon afterwards the sign of the son of man coming in the clouds will be seen as He is coming to receive His elect . Somewhere durning this time lucifer the devil , the dragon the serpent will be thrown or cast to earth to make ready for his trial . He will have 3 1/2 years . Counting seven years as Daniel tells us March 2021 ends 3 1/2 years since the Great Sugn . Somewhere around this time the devil will be cast to earth . Note I have not given a exact time or date but saying somewhere around this time . We don’t know the exact time or date , but the Bible tells us that we can know the season by the signs and the times fulfilling prophecy . Then we are told gather yourselves together more often conforming one another and looking for that day with expectation . Those of the devil will try and discourage anyone pointing to the word of GOD being fulfilled before our eyes . But know this once you see the asteroids falling from the sky know your time is very short and you better make ready to become one of GOD’s children or continue on your path of destruction . Because the next advent is lucifer being cast to earth ! And Revelation 12 tells us Wow be to the inhabitants of the earth because he knows his time is short and he will go forth with great wrath ! Talk about an alien invasion , movies have not even shown the destruction that will take place when he is slammed by GOD to earth . This earth is about to go thru so much destruction and it is almost upon us !
