Sen. Chuck Schumer leapt on that suggestion from Graham Thursday, telling McConnell on the ground that if he’ll permit a standalone vote on survival checks, he’d help a vote on “no matter right-wing conspiracy you need,” even whether or not Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensberger “has a brother named Ron.” (He doesn’t. And I am undecided how I really feel about Schumer paying that a lot consideration to right-wing conspiracy theories, however it’s a hell of a zinger.)
McConnell is aware of there is not an individual on this planet who (legitimately) believes the survival checks are going to wealthy folks. Hell, they would not even attain a number of newly poor folks—they’re means examined based mostly on 2019 earnings, and loads of individuals who made $75,000 in 2019 made drastically lower than that in 2020. McConnell additionally is aware of that it is a key problem for voters in Georgia. Apparently he is feeling invincible proper now, a lot in order that he is telling Loeffler, Perdue, Donald Trump, Lindsey Graham, all of the voters, each struggling individual in America to simply fuck off. In order that he can troll Pelosi and Schumer, and perhaps forestall simply that little little bit of enchancment within the economic system for soon-to-be President Joe Biden.
So Georgia, America. what to do. The one factor that may be achieved at this level since there is not a single damned backbone amongst Senate Republicans to face as much as McConnell is to finish his majority by electing Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock.
