“No realistic path to quickly pass the Senate.” That’s what Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said, rejecting a bill to increase direct payments to $2,000.
McConnell attacked the House-passed bill saying, “The Senate is not going to be bullied into rushing out more borrowed money into the hands of Democrats’ rich friends who don’t need the help.”
The comment is eye-opening and jaw-dropping given the income restrictions on the stimulus payment.
Equally interesting is the Kentucky Senator represents a state with a $50,247 median income, ranking number 45 among all states. The bottom ten U.S. States in median income are all republican controlled states.
This raises the great question: Has a Senator who has served for 35 years lost touch with the people’s needs? Is it even possible to understand the common man’s problems after spending so many years in Washington D.C.?
Do you think it’s time to consider term-limits? Do you support Mitch McConnell and think he’s doing the people’s work?
