And David Perdue is still running ads claiming credit for the package. Ossoff is trying to have them taken down, but it shows again how much media consolidation is tipped in favor of the GOP.

 

Pat Toomey, resembling a Cronenberg protagonist more every day, already flat out said that they won't be passing $2K stimulus in the Senate. So the question is whether McConnell will be able to wait out the backlash, as he usually does, and whether the media will stop carrying water or obsessing over Trump's involvement and trying to "both sides" their way out of this, and if they don't, will the public at least see through it enough to win the Georgia seats. 

 

I know a lot of leftists hate him, but Conor Lamb shows where the focus should be.

What a big pile of [!@#$%^&*]. Go-nowhere tech repeals and voter fraud hysteria that will enable the GOP and their media allies to further degrade Biden's win. Meanwhile, the 2K will likely be attached to something like the tech repeal or draconian voter "protection" measures they know Democrats will never support, leading Jake Sherman and friends to blame it all on the usual suspects. 

 

At least the $600 and the unemployment money will be on the way for people, even if it's too late for some. That in of itself is a good thing. I just wish someday it did not have to be attached to so much absolute garbage.

Most of the things he suggests will materialize in that document will never actually happen, though, like most of Trump's promises. He's just securing 'consideration' and calling another failure his grand victory.
