It continues to amaze me the depths of apparent insanity in our President. Last night he calls for unity. This morning he attacks Democrats via Twitter. The schizophrenic whiplash is not healthy for anybody. And it could hurt us all badly in the long run.
Pelosi doesn’t support the payroll tax holiday, but comes up with an actual plan to help those most affected by the current goings on. (See my last post under Mr. Roberts’ post from yesterday concerning the Democratic proposal.) Just because she disagrees with his plan, he lashes out because she supported one when Obama was President. I don’t recall the why of that one, but the idea that …”if you get a paycheck, you’re going to take home more money,” as he tweeted makes no sense. If you are an hourly employee and NOT going to work, you aren’t getting a paycheck so there is no “more money”. There is just NO money.
Is it time to take another look at the 25th Amendment? It’s ludicrous. – IMHO.
And Minority Leader McCarthy says the GOP won’t support the plan from the Majority. He does bring up valid points of the perceived shortcomings and says ““We’ve got some bright minds … let them look at it. Let us get together and put the very best ideas together and I will promise you that you will find a very bipartisan vote for that and not the one that slows it up by any means and I think we can get this done in the next 48 hours,” he said. “I think that we can get this done in 24 or 48 hours — I think it’s critical that we do.”
A valid call for bipartisanship that should absolutely be considered. But I wonder, though, if he is being forthcoming or just trying to delay things and push Trump’s plan, which appears to be a big, fat nothingburger.
