Nancy Pelosi struck a deal with the Trump administration on a landmark bill that will strike a major blow in the fight against the outbreak of COVID-19. It passed by a vote of 363-40-1. The bill includes the longtime liberal priority of paid sick leave, as well as enhanced unemployment insurance, increased funds for Medicaid, and provisions to ensure food security. She then promptly led the House in passing the bill into law.

So where’s Mitch McConnell and the Senate? Enjoying a long weekend at home. Stunningly, incomprehensibly, Senate Republicans adjourned their business on Thursday afternoon and won’t return until Monday. Democrats have demanded the Senate majority leader come back to address the crisis, but he’s nowhere to be found.

Trump’s inaction has already cost us gravely. McConnell going AWOL at our hour of greatest need will harm us even further. The coronavirus waits for no human. If they had any decency, Senate Republicans would reconvene at once and pass the House’s bill.

But since we know they don’t, it’s on us to replace them with better public servants. We need to defeat vulnerable Republicans in key Senate races this November. Our future health depends on it.

How the F..K is it possible for these grifters to GO ON VACATION??? NOW? Seriously disturbing. I work for a township. If we have a snow storm coming, WE ARE ALL REQUIRED TO WORK TO KEEP THE ROADS CLEAR AND EVERYONE SAFE. But for this, they can just decide not to work? Man, we need a complete overhaul of our government.
