Imagine you’re repairing an airplane in flight. If you lose focus on keeping it flying then voiding the warranty by using other than genuine factory authorized parts won’t make any difference when they pick up the pieces after the crash.
Imagine it’s the President who is doing the in-flight repairs and along comes a Democrat from the peanut gallery demanding her three course meal, coffee and desert before the flight ends. That about explains how the two plus trillion dollar repair bill is being highjacked by demands from the passenger section. If the plane does crash, the “Looters” will be there before the emergency response people to scour the wreckage for anything useful they can find for their own purposes.
This China Virus relief bill business has revealed one politician who qualifies for a mention in Profiles in Courage. He’s Rep. Thomas Massie, the only one of that lot to say that Congress should take a minute to re-consider their voice vote because its basically unconstitutional. Whoa!
That was brave to fly in the face of the House Speaker. He ignited a fire. Pelosi slammed him for wanting to slow the passage of that Pork filled $2.2 trillion coronavirus relief bill while others screamed he be “kicked out” of the Republican Party. Is this an example of the Pot calling the Kettle black? Wasn’t it Pelosi in fact, who first stepped in to slow the passage of the bill by demanding her hot meal, coffee and desert for everyone?
Massie is really an Independent and could probably care less what the GOP, or Pelosi thought. He stood his ground by simply revealing a roll call vote was required. Hiding behind the China Virus, Congresspersons, if they chose, could stay at home and submit a voice vote thereby dodging personal responsibility at reelection time. It was Massie’s intention to point out that both Pelosi and House minority leader McCarthy were working together to block a recorded vote just to insulate members of Congress from accountability.
In repairing the airplane in flight, think of Massie as the one selling genuine factory authorized parts.
Not unexpectedly, MSNBC host Rachel Maddow, joined the fray by agreeing with Nancy Pelosi that Rep. Massie, was a “dangerous nuisance” for insisting on a roll-call vote before the House passed the relief bill. Massie tweeted against Pelosi and House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, saying they were attempting to “insulate” lawmakers from “accountability” on fiscal conservatism. In the same interview with Maddow, Pelosi announced her intention to raid the treasury again in terms of doing more for American workers. “When they talk about this as $2 trillion and all that it does for America’s workers and families, it’s the least we could do. And we have much more to do.” Bull S___!
Democrats don’t want the airplane repaired. Pelosi’s vision is to be able to loot the treasury even more. “We know that this cannot be our final bill,” she said,.”The $2 trillion bill package signed Friday has many glaring omissions that must be rectified, including expanding which workers qualify for unpaid, job-protected leave, free health care services for coronavirus patients and more funding for hospitals and health centers.” Here come Medicare for all, aka: Obamacare lite.
Pelosi already sees the future Congress as entirely Democrat and Trump, reduced to a morbid episode to be rewritten as a dark era of American history. If they succeed, America’s race to Socialism, after Trump, will run apace unless voters throw the bums out when the plane finally lands.
When Trump finally signed the China-Virus Relief Bill, he stuck another pin in his Pelosi voodoo doll by not inviting her to gloat at the signing. She must be seething with rage and humiliation because she couldn’t be present at the signing to take credit for helping the “American Worker.”
At the moment, the airplane is still in the air but, we have no parts (money) only paper that pretends its money!
Many Leftist Governors are turning dictatorial in their zeal to use the China-virus as an excuse to ignore the Constitution and, Pelosi’s raid of the treasury is expected to help them continue their constitutional assault. Mr. Don Cole, Republican candidate for Ga. House Dist. 2, inspired this essay.
Remember, freedom is the goal, the Constitution is the way. Now, go get ’em!
