Stimulus

Kevin is puzzled.

So what’s the problem? We know that the vast majority of Republicans don’t really care about the budget deficit, so it can’t be that. Relieving the financial stress on millions of voters would surely be good for Donald Trump, so partisan politics can’t be the answer. Everyone in Congress represents a state that desperately needs help, so it can’t be a geographic thing.

And yet Republicans refuse to support a serious stimulus/rescue plan. I really, truly don’t understand. Is it just habit? Automatic opposition to anything Democrats like? What on earth is the problem?

Lemme esplain.

They’re going to use Dems’ refusal to vote for the stimulus bill in campaign ads.

They’re not going to say “Senator Foo wouldn’t vote for COVID19 stimulus relief because he thought it was too skimpy.” They’re just going to say the first part.

You’re welcome.

    Kevin’s continual effort to explain Republicans, while assuming that they are interested in governance or the welfare of the nation, frequently leaves him unable to understand what’s in front of his face.

    Oh, I just think Kevin is just adopting an ironic tone, putting on his mock ironic thinking cap, despite the funeral held for Irony some ago and all of the death notices in the papers.

    If he merely asked the obvious question “Why aren’t we just killing all of these Evil people?” over and over again, he would become tiresome .. like me.

    Open questions tend to keep the readership coming back.

    For the suspense.
