Oh Snap – McConnell Gives Pelosi Another Chance to Stop U.S. Market Collapse – Will ReFloor Emergency Funding Bill at 9:45am Monday…

Man-o-man, this is some high-stakes poker playing, and it’s the United States economy on the table.   Mitch McConnell is going to put S.3548 The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act, or the CARES Act, back on the senate floor at 9:45am ET tomorrow, 15 minutes after the stock market starts collapsing.

Sweet Baby Jesus… I can’t remember ever seeing anything like this.  A $20 trillion U.S. economy, and tens-of-millions of American jobs and businesses on the line….  And McConnell is calling Pelosi’s bluff.    P.U.B.L.I.C.L.Y!

Talk about seriously high stakes politics.   Yikes.  McConnell is going to make every democrat senator vote again to close debate and advance the bill; putting them on record for negotiating a deal and then walking away from the deal they assembled.

I would imagine Senator McConnell has talked to President Trump about this….

    McConnell can eliminate the 60 vote filibuster starting right now… today. Let’s not give this Swamp creature a pass so easily. He’s still a snake.

    He can cut out all the corporate welfare and just pass it with 51 votes, including Pence’s if necessary.

      The issue isn’t the filibuster. It’s that the House would still need to vote on the bill. All the filibuster means is that Pelosi won’t back the Senate bill. Apparently, they were closer to a deal until Pelosi swooped in and blew it up yesterday.

      The Democrat filibuster is good for the GOP, politically, because there’s no way for the Dems to cover it up. They are absurdly claiming that at $1.8T bill that includes direct, cash outlays to middle class voters, isn’t enough.

      Quoting myself on Pelosi’s voice mail last night, “People are being thrown out of work, just who the [expletive deleted] do you [expletive deleted]ing people think you are! Pass the [expletive deleted] bill!”

      With the Senate delayed until 2PM, I’m going to be optimistic and hope the GOP has all Senators who have just be self-quarantined to arrive in the Senate Chambers at 2PM in protective gear.
      McConnell will demand a vote for the People and to demonstrate how committed the Republicans are to get the job done any way they can.
      As a sidebar, Trump should call the Governors of NY and CA to tell Nancy and Chuck to shape up – their States are the most vulnerable.
      Hope Springs Eternal!

    The reason that the votes aren’t there is that a number of Republican Senators have self-isolated following exposure or in one case diagnosis. This is consistent with health guidelines. However, Democrats have not followed this rule. At least one has been exposed and I would be surprised if there weren’t more. So the answer is obvious-involuntary quarantine. Put enough of them in a secure facility until they can be tested. Have the vote then.

    • Why do only Republicans self-isolate? And if you have no symptoms, test negative, why would you do that? I saw this coming when they did this…bring them back, except for Rand who is the only one who tested positive…they can wear protective suits and masks and gloves and come in long enough to vote. This is stupid…they are stupid.

        Excellent idea MikeR, There may be another precedent. George Reed, delegate from Delaware to the Constitutional Convention voted twice to approve it. Once for himself and once for John Dickinson, who was home with a migraine. Reed, Dickinson, and James Wilson were part of the “junto” (that’s what it was called back then) that voted against Independence July 2, 1776, but For the Declaration July 4th, attended the Annapolis tavern meeting to plan the Philadelphia enclave with Alexander Hamilton. Being for an aristocratic form of government, I’m guessing they would be Democrats today. But the point is, the Motivated found a way, and the Other Guys ( from e.g. RI,NJ,NY) stayed home who, if they were there, could have insisted on a Bill of Rights with the New Constitution. Would have saved us a lot of trouble.

    There is another upside to this.

    The Socialist Progressives, the Bernie Bros, are well-aware of what Pelosi and Schumer are doing.
    The Progressives also believe Pres Trump has gone left of Pelosi and Schumer, and are praising Pres Trump for his efforts to have money to real people ASAP.
    The Progressives are very well-aware Pelosi and Schumer have blocked this.

    The Socialist Progressives still hate Pres Trump. But they hate Pelosi, Schumer, and the Democrat Party more.
    Is somewhat unnerving to hear the Progressives singing Pres Trump’s praises.

    We will see at least the same amount of Democrat and Progressive support for Pres Trump in the fall, perhaps even more than 2016.

    On day 1 or so, the tyrants proactively accused President Trump of muzzling their deep state plant, Dr. Fauci. I use the honorific Dr. but he is not a doctor and has never been a doctor or researcher. He was enlisted into the bureaucracy right out of med school.

    One look and listen and you can see why this would be his path. He is a beta male not suited to making life and death decisions. He is a linear thinker unable to see the larger picture. We must modify the old saying: Those who cant, teach or go into government.

    This tied the Presidents hands.

    Ive been preaching since nearly the beginning that this is a manufactured crises over nothing more than a cold. The numbers we recieve through official channels are intentionally skewed. An example is the news from the science advisor to the Italian Ministry of Health that only 12% of the deaths attributed to Chinese flu were actually caused by the Chinese flu. Take the Italian official toll of around 10,000 deaths and say it is 1000. Im sure the same is happening around the world. So our 400 number is actually more like 40. That doesnt keep the masses locked in thier homes in fear.

    This is a well coordinated plot developed by the globalists, deep state snakes and the CCP to not only bring down our President but to permanently cripple Western Civilization. The tyrants opposition to any relief bills and thier intentionally loading any such bill with their wish list of tyrannical progressive agenda items, is to dare the President to veto a relief package and because they know this is all a manufactured crises.

    It is my opinion that their goal is full on civil unrest, rioting and looting on a massive scale and the arrest of our President for made up crimes. President Nancy can then declare martial law and suspend Habeas Corpus ensuring that the chains on the People can be cinched tight. Her next move will be door to door confiscation of all guns.

    I know this sounds paranoid but that is where we are at today. No plan is too sinister or devious to dismiss. That is the measure of the globalists, dem tyrants and CCPs resolve. We are at war.

    Senator Chuck Grassley on the Rescue Package
    MON, MAR 23, 2020 | BY HUGH HEWITT
    Transcript:

    GRASSLEY: … if they aren’t unemployed today, they’ll be unemployed tomorrow, of $1,200 dollars for an individual, $2,400 dollars for a married couple, $500 dollars for each child. And we went along with a big increase in unemployment compensation by $600 dollars a month across the board for at least three months. And that’s the number one ask of the Democrats. And I thought that was very important to do. And if I said $600 dollars a month, I meant $600 dollars a week …
    —–
    HEWITT: … It’s what, a trillion and a half dollars? Two trillion dollars?
    GRASSLEY: One and eight-tenths trillion, I think.
    HEWITT: Oh, my gosh. $1.8 trillion dollars. That is, that’s almost three times bigger than President Obama’s stimulus…
    —–
    GRASSLEY: … But the United States is 22% of the world economy. If we get our economy moving, it’s going to help get the world economy moving…
    —–
    GRASSLEY: … I get along very well with Senator Wyden of Oregon. He’s the one that sat on the taskforce with me to work out this, the parts of this big bill that McConnell put in that came out of the Finance Committee. We worked very closely together. Not only that, but we have adopted the only bipartisan bill in the United States Congress that can get 60 votes in the United States Senate and reduce the price of prescription drugs, which is the number one, well, after this pandemic …
    —–
    HEWITT: … Do you believe the Democrats are handling this with the seriousness, thoughtfulness and urgency it demands?
    GRASSLEY: I did Friday and Saturday when we were working on the taskforce, and I still believe individual Democrats feel differently than Schumer. But they probably have to vote with him if he tells them to vote a certain way. But that was blown up yesterday, but I blame Schumer more than individual Democrats.

    Sent the following to my Senators & Congressman:

    Small Business owner here – offering some ideas on how to keep small business employees paid during the crises:

    1. Please do not wrap your “solution” in government bureaucracy & pork
    2. Every employee gets a paycheck & pay stub on some periodic basis from an employer
    3. Every employer reports wages per employee on some periodic basis to the local, state, and federal governments
    4. Utilize that flow of information, but turn it AROUND…..
    5. Employers already have reported on who & how much they have paid wages to over the last – say two (2) months.
    6. Create a simple reporting mechanism (equivalent to a quarterly F941, or RT-6 like we have in Florida) with which small businesses can request all or some portion of that previously reported amount be “refunded” for use in retaining employees on payroll.

    With all due respect Senator/Congressman – this is not a hard problem when the governments COLLECT money.
    Suggesting that the government(s) just turn the process around – essentially reversing the flow of information and funds.
