This is terrible.
Democrats were over a barrel in this situation, yet we still figured out how to grab defeat from the jaws of victory.
You are reading Nancy’s bill not the one passed by the US Senate
The republican’ts always know how to capitulate.
I’d rather receive nothing than accept this.
Thats been known to happen.
There was a time when this would shock me.
Because building all those rays guns that go *pew!* *pew!* *pew!* against the alien saucers ain't cheap. The front desk assistant alone gets $250K/yr to pretend it's a Pep Boys tire outlet.
So what's the senate bill? It's literally one page less than the previous house bill. What could possibly be different?
Veto. No bill would be better than this crap. We just don’t need all this.
Wish we could say it’s a surprise. But sadly, all to predictable.
So is the National Weather Service. But that’s what you get when you put all your damned termperature sensors in the center of urban heat islands.
Those urban heat island readings wasn't enough.
Now they take into those account WITH models of approximations of weather stations might have been if those weather stations that closed down years ago were still here.
In other words they make sh^% up totally fabricated which supposed to be measured data.
America is dying. America needs a reset.
This is going to break the country. Soon the bread will cost $10.00 a loaf. Giving so much to the art group that has reltively few people is a queer distribution. Some will get a lot in the short range. This is fake economy giving away the power of the dollar. Maybe we will turn to God.
Why is it that people like Schumer, Pelosi, Schiff, Nadler, et. al., are so in favor of pork?
To the gallows!
Well saw major inflation back in the Carter years.
And then I got a 12% mortgage when they had to reign it back in.
