What are your permanent interests?
Folk are fired up about the vote (me too). People are passionately opposed to any perceived agreement with #Republiteas because they lie — increasingly and voraciously (from their top down). For example, Some Democratic senators sought preserving military pay during the shutdown, which Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell objected — and the government closed. Then, VP Pence goes to a military base and accuses the Democrats of whitholding military pay! Why should #SenChuckSchumer, and the others who voted for this trick trust Senator Mitch Mcconell now? How do you negotiate with people who lie for themselves and others in their party, unapologetically? We have seen #TrumpRepubliteaAltRight fight one another and hunker down in their sub-divided rhetoric, only to tow the party line when they vote. They fear their base now. So, how do you trust that?
It would br great if Schumer can say, I TOLD YA, after February 8 and IF #DACA is secured. Time will tell if the Dems tactical strategy leads to a victory for human decency — but, there’s good reason for doubt.
Republiteas created the #BargainingCHIP trickereration, which shouldn’t have been on the table in the first place. They could have renewed this issue last year — they didn’t want to.
Journalist #JonathanCapehart and #RepKarenBass called out another threat to #healthcare for the most vulnerable of us — reduced funding for community health centers. They are determined to undo #Obamacare, one policy at a time. Their hurt is laser-focused. You cannot trust heartless people, because they don’t care who they harm with their words or actions. Former Missouri congressman, William Clay, uttered these wise words, “This is quite a game, politics. There are no permanent enemies, and no permanent friends, only permanent interests”. Rail against your party, if you want, but they can compromise with the other side on occasion. What should be most important is what matters to you. Vote your issues — defend your interests. VOTE!
