Sick of it all
USA Today has it right. Most (emphasis on “most”) Americans have rebuked the Republican Party. Unfortunately, not enough have done so. The “red wave” never materialized; however, they have control of Congress, and they are poised to dismantle even more freedoms for Americans.
Republicans don’t care about the people. They care about power and their own selfish desires. Yet, some people just can’t pull themselves away. No, Democrats aren’t perfect, but they’re a hell of a lot better than Republicans. Everything they do is geared toward the people who put them in office. Not revenge, not tit for tat, not any of the ridiculousness that Republicans continue to show. As USA Today reported, Republicans don’t get that and continue moving forward with their plans. Let’s hope those plans continue to lead to their downfall.
Exit polls shows overwhelmingly that people – even Republican voters – are sick of the election fraud story. It is just that-a story. It contains absolutely no truth, as the courts have shown time and again, but many Republicans can’t stop talking about and trying to use it. As USA Today reported, exit polls also revealed how little voters are thinking about critical race theory, transgender people, and Hunter Biden’s laptop. In other words, no one cares. Instead of finding out what voters really want, Republicans continue along the same destructive path. Good. Maybe there will be even fewer of them around after the next election cycle. Take the abortion issue, for example.
Voters consistently showed that they have no use for abortion restrictions even as Republicans have tried to restrict them even more. Five states put abortion initiatives on the ballot, and they were overwhelmingly defeated. House Republicans, oblivious to the voters’ voices, have already passed bills relating to abortion, including restricting federal funding and new regulations on how abortion providers handle babies born alive. As pointed out, the latter is extremely rare and is already covered by federal law. So, Republicans are not only hell bent on having things their way, they don’t even know the law. What a bunch of idiots.
Showing even more idiocy, Republicans continue to bang the inflation drum, claiming that they are “saving hard-working Americans from the tyranny of Joe Biden’s economic policies.” Right. Instead of doing something that might benefit those hard-working American they claim to support, one of their first moves was to fashion a bill to cut billions in funding for the IRS, which was approved to stop wealthy tax cheats. That will help hard-working Americans-help them pay more in taxes while the rich keep avoiding paying their fair share. Don’t consider that if this were to pass, it would add $114 billion to the deficit, something else Republicans claim to care about. Instead, McCarthy has brought up the fair tax, which still benefits the wealthy and places a 30% sales tax on all those hard-working Americans who can already barely afford groceries.
Republicans are in office to enrich themselves and their wealthy friends. Make no mistake about that. Stop voting against your own interests and run these liars out of office.
