In what likely will be the end of the GOP ‘s control over the Senate, Mitch McConnell (unless he suddenly does an about face) has effectively sealed the GOP ‘s fate. Senator Loeffler and Perdue were both already struggling in Georgia, and against the backdrop of arguments that the GOP isn’t doing enough for Americans, they began to struggle even more as polls and discussions went on.
On Tuesday, Mitch McConnell effectively ended any hopes right now of increased stimulus to Americans. This means, however, that people should increasingly pay attention to Mitch ‘s own moves and his financial interests from here on out. During Tuesday ‘s session, Mitch refused to bring to the floor a vote that would otherwise either reject or grant the piece of legislation that would swiftly increase the stimulus checks poised to go out as soon as next week.
NBC now notes that Mitch apparently wants to discuss the issue only if it gets discussed alongside other issues: including the baseless accusations of election fraud, and Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act. It’s worth noting that by lumping the three together — the stimulus part is much less likely to pass at all if it ever does actually get brought to vote.
Meanwhile dozens of Republicans have turned on their own party including Donald Trump. Trump and McConnell are now engaged in full blown political propaganda ver the measure — which Mitch still appears to personally believe isn’t needed because of course (‘jobs and Wall Street’.) The death of the GOP party, brought on by their own actions, certainly has been a long time coming in the United States.
