What we Progressives need is some way to immunize ourselves from the miasma of McConnell and his fellow Republican criminals.

This is about more than the pandemic. These legal protections for businesses sought by the Republicans will eventually extend well beyond anything related to Covid-19.

The DNC doesn’t agree , that’s why they endorsed Amy McGrath a Trump supporting DEM Instead of Charles Booker. They need a Boogeyman to raise money.

When this passes it will be ENTIRELY on Pelosi and the Dims.

Of course Mitch and the republicans have nothing to do with this???

I believe the point is that it cannot pass unless the Democrats in the House go along with it. Yes, Mitch is proposing it and he is cruel and maniacal as all get out, but it will take the duplicitous Democrats to make it law along with their Republican cohorts.

Hell, Congress might as well make it officially legal on the books as both parties are in power to do the bidding of their criminal corporate overlords and to see they are never held accountable in any meaningful fashion whatsoever. Once in a while these criminal corporations receive a fine which to them is simply the cost of doing business. Not only did Obama make sure no one was prosecuted after the 2008 meltdown, he actually installed the same criminals into his cabinet. Pelosi will most likely go along with immunizing these corporate criminals when the time comes to vote.

Immunity for corporations in general and regarding Covid specifically should be a big NOOOOOO - Off the table for Dems.

Too bad we can’t immunize ourselves against the Republican mentality.

The first step would be progressives in congress to challenge Pelosi but no one seems to want to go against mama bear, even as she is eviscerating us.

That would probably entail a frontal lobotomy.
