|Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) is the founding member of the "Do Nothing But Yell" Freedom Caucus. He joined 89 House members and 17 Senators with strict opposition to disaster relief.|
This is pathetic. The Republican Party is extremely inept in leadership, compassion and sympathy.
With a disaster hitting the Florida panhandle, the junk food media quickly left Houston and the Pacific states to cover Hurricane Irma.
The wildfires in the West and the hurricane damages in Texas and Louisiana has displaced millions of Americans out of the labor force. It made millions homeless. It also made more Americans resort to the safety net.
The safety net is very important. Millions of people depend on federal assistance. With the possibility of catastrophic damages, Republicans better start opening up their wallets and hearts.
It's worth noting that conservatives started this racially motivated theme about Americans being out of work and on food stamps.
Republicans and conservatives continue to push this ridiculous narrative that food stamps and welfare are causing Americans to be lazy.
Many Americans work two or three jobs and still can't make ends meet.
To feed children is the reason to why food stamps exist.
Welfare is to help people too poor or disabled find suitable housing and work.
Republicans opposed the healthy initiatives that Michelle Obama imposed for the schools. Edgeamucation Secretary Betsy DeVos is working hard to take healthy food out of the public schools.
About 17 Senators and 90 House members voted against Hurricane Harvey relief because it was attached to funding the government.
The raising of the debt ceiling is very important and Republicans continue this charade about cutting government services and regulations.
Inept Doanld J. Trump sided with Minority Leaders, Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) to get a budget deal passed.
It deflated Republicans chance to negotiate the debt ceiling.
Republicans grumbled over the lack of cooperation from a dysfunctional Trump.
The weather vane of political grandstanding continued with Rep. Jim Jordon (R-OH) going to GOP Sundays to beeyotch about how House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) and Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) broke their promises.
Jordan was like a soapbox of rhetoric on Fox News Sunday. Chris Wallace was giving a lap dance. They were even joking about how Trump referred the Minority Leaders as Chuck and Nancy.
Jordan was one of these lawmakers who refused to aid victims of disaster because in his empty head, the government is outta control with spending.
Newsflash to Jordan and the members of the House of Representatives and Senate who voted against Hurricane Harvey relief: karma.
Karma could hit the districts that these lawmakers reside.
You guys are wasting taxpayer money by your presence. For every time a lawmaker makes the news rounds, you probably cost an American $200.00 a minute.
