Imagine if someone came along and just slapped a shutdown order on your storefront or business for 2 weeks — or until further notice. Then said, at the end of 15 days we can talk about future operations. “We’ll let you know. Stay tuned.”
That is effectively what government has done here. Now granted there is an emergency and medical reasons but that makes the whole idea seem only slightly more palatable.
Sure in the end, businesses and people did it for the good of people and the country. They did it for moral purposes. And they didn’t even complain that much. It was deemed a social necessity to limit the spread of a vicious disease, a real pandemic.
Americans did what they usually do, made the best of it.
Businesses accepted and complied with their social responsibility without pointing fingers or blame. Schools were shuttered. Further, people were inconvenienced and forced into social isolation under threat of offense if they did not comply. But they didn’t need threats; Americans complied.
Now if all that were not bad enough, they now see shaping up a bill to address those economic damages which piles an entire agenda of other non-related, political issues onto their sufferings. They watch their own legislators piling on political wishes to their damages like ornaments.
I don’t think words can describe the outrageous fury of people over those circumstances.
ABC News reports:
Prior to the vote, Republicans complained Democrats have turned negotiations into a “leftwing episode of Supermarket Sweep.”
“Why are Democrats filibustering the bipartisan bill they helped write?” McConnell wondered, ticking through a “Democratic wish list” that he said was preventing an agreement, including tax credits for solar energy and wind energy provisions to force employers to give “special new treatment for big labor,” and new emissions standards for airlines.
Let me get this straight: the government comes along and wrecks businesses at a moments notice then tells them to get in line behind their pet political concerns? There must be a hot fiery place for that – extremely hot.
Words cannot express the people’s rage for that treatment. They broke the model but have problems about fixing it? Democrats are playing a very dangerous and sinister game here. But it is just politics as usual to them. That’s a shame.
Americans didn’t cause this. They didn’t ask for this. In fact, the only thing they ever ask is that government protect the country. Actually, the government and Democrats in particular were too busy with their political agenda, and trying to impeach the president that they could not protect the country. They didn’t care.
But now they want to use this economic crisis they created to feather their own political nests, to play election politics with your livelihood. Disgraceful.
Americans did their part, now government does not want to do their jobs or be responsible. And what accountability? Democrats’ political agenda is job #1.
To make matters even worse, when they go took the floor arguing for their self-serving political agenda, they called the bill a “bailout” for businesses. Relief for damages through no fault of their own, they call it bailouts? Are you kidding me?
They owe it to Americans and people deserve better than this extortion plot. But we the people are supposed to suffer and pay for their own malfeasance.
