The great negotiators, Nancy and Chucky, get out flanked by our dumb-ass-in-chief, or was it acquiescence for the greatest looting of the treasury, ever?

I believe it was most likely either give him a bit of what he wanted or lose the whole thing to a POed veto.

How did we get to the place where the current President is not to be trusted by the majority of the country and is kept in power by a gang of thuggish, brain dead Republican reprobates? How dire are the circumstances facing the nation today, an untrustworthy President, unworthy of the position he holds and totally incompetent in it, a deadly pandemic made much worse by Administration fails and a dysfunctional and dystopic society to round out the situation?

There’s virtually little support for American workers, compared to corporate support, in this bill. No one on the “left” should have voted for the looting of our treasury. That’s what this bill is, the great looting.

Doesn’t get any better than that, right?

No independent oversight of the billions of OUR tax dollars being given away to wealthiest corporate GOP donors? Fine! Then…
…NO Billions are to be given away to any of the greedy corporations slinking in with their slimy hands & sticky little fingers trying to snatch up all the undeserved, unneeded huge money meant to help real Americans & small businesses suffering thru the incompetence of this Administration! It’s that simple.
A deal was made. Surely, Trump knows how Contracts & Agreements work. The deal is “this & that, part & parcel, 2 halves of a whole” & already agreed to + signed. You cannot now, take out the oversight & keep the part you like ~ throwing $$$ around to your friends, recklessly blowing thru all that money & not knowing who got it, how much & why they got it. That’s just “very bad business, 101”. But now I can see how Trump bankrupted his casinos. (Not EZ to bankrupt big hotel casinos!)
And, Trump is doing his best to bankrupt our Country! He’s doing it on purpose - RUNNING UP HUUUGGGE DEBT. What I don’t understand is, “WHY??!!”

BOTTOM LINE HERE IS SIMPLE…NO INDEPENDENT OVERSIGHT? NO MONEY!
It should be basic Contract Law, Business Law. Trump breaks 1 part of Agreement, then Contract becomes null & void

It has been 40 years of neoliberalism/corruption first by Reagan than Clinton than Bush then Obama and Trump knowing that they all got away with murdering democracy and thiefery. They all were traders to the constitution and “we the people”. No accountability has been had for 60 years and of course prior to that.

We the people failed in voting against our own best interests. We believe the whatever lamestreet media puts out there and fails to put out there. We believe our lying politicans who have grown richer and richer while failing we the people.

And of course, the first person who should have been ousted is still in office.
He should be first (and last) miner on the Moon. He certainly does not belong in America.

WHY? Because he is Putin’s little puppet.
