As was pointed out to me a few days ago, McConnell was never going to bring the suppossed

1.8 trillion dollar COVID relief bill before the Senate, regardless what trump said he wanted.

I suspect it was an attempt to cast the Democrats, and Pelosi specifically in a "bad light", not willing to "work with the republicans"

Many in the press fell for it, Andrew Yang and others fell for it. It should be more than clear by now, this isn't about the Democrats not willing to compromise, but rather the republicans constantly going back on their word, and not being trustworthy

The only bill McConnell will bring before the Senate, is a drastically reduced bill that will effectively help very few, and not bring money to the healthcare workers for resources to combat what appears to be the surge in COVID cases cropping up, and helping those who are still out of work unable to make rent, mortgage, or food for their families

Hopefully we will win the election, and both houses of Congress, but even with that, if the past behavior or the republicans is any prediction of their future behavior, it is very doubtful that they will be willing to sign on to a stimulus in the two months before the new president takes over, out of spite if nothing else, and hoping that the lack of a stimulus will push us into a depression, which they will "blame on the Democrats"

3. The republicans will keep the same modus operendi as they always do.

And for republicans their modus operendi is being consistent ignoramuses and assholes often with "head up ass."

5. They're really stingy bastards who look out for big business/industry...

who will send them campaign contributions so they can stay in power. It's always been that way.

They only pretend to care about their regular people constituents.

4. The only Legislation Moscow Mitch is bring

is some type of Bill to Indemnify Employers from Law Suits which are pending or about to be filed in coming weeks and months from Health Issues or wrong full Death suits,connected to or the result of their Employer not taking necessary steps or precautions to protect them from Covid.

So surprised a National Lawyer Group has not filed for Class Action against the White House as well as HHS and CDC yet.

11. OSHA Rules and Regs call for

Punitive measures when it comes to Employers allowing or failing to take preventative measures in protecting any Employee from Environmental or Physical harm while preforming their work Assignments .

Once Trumps so called Executive Orders are dumped by the courts,then all hell breaks lose.

9. trump and McConnell intentionally stalled getting another stimulus package

Getting to small businesses, and the American people. Knowing it was hurting Americans and our country. I don't see why anyone would be voting for people like that to be in OUR government. They'll destroy Social Security and Medicare, and all health care . McConnell needs to be looked into for ties to foreign countries, he's a crook.
