Remember the old movie Goodfellas? That film could paint a nice picture of the modern Democrat Party. The Cosa Nostra continues. (Our thing)
Negotiations continue over the COVID aid package. Democrat Nancy Pelosi still wants bailouts for big blue states. No dice. Americans don’t want to pay for failures.
But that isn’t the only problem with Democrats. Mitch wanted liability protection for small businesses. Dems don’t want that. So allow me to translate that into English.
We know what COVID restrictions are doing to small business. Mitch wanted to at least take the burden of lawsuits off of them. Prevent a tsunami of law suits by trial lawyers.
Here is the deal: All the damage small businesses already suffered under COVID and shutdown policies is bad enough – much of it from Democrat governors and mayors.
Then, Dems want to leave the gates wide open for hoards of trial lawyers to come in to finish them off. If they were lucky enough to survive months of pandemic losses, they will be no match for the litigation jihad to take them down in the aftermath.
But, according to a Pew article, even if businesses get some immunity, there will still be nuisance lawsuits filed. Litigation cost could stagger small businesses to fend them off.
What kind of sick expectations can any small business have? Face a tsunami of lawsuits by Democrat trial lawyers or suffer slower, thousand pinpricks of frivolous suits to shake you down, or take your business from under your feet. Some choice.
Remember liability protection would not grant complete mmunity, just set a higher bar. Dems’ pack of trial lawyers await. What protections do businesses have?
It appears protections are not in the package; so open season for now. Goodfellas indeed.
