Watch Chris Murphy (D-CT) explain how republicons hijacked the COVID-19 relief bill process

By turning to K Street lobbyists on Sunday to pork out on the $2 trillion bill.

I’ve heard good stuff from Manchin (D-WV) and others today. However, Murphy’s afternoon speech stopped me in my tracks as he did a good job of describing how broken the republicons’ priorities and process has been in response to the crisis at hand.

3. Watching some of the republicons today

I’ve loathed their panicked and coercive antics about how we — the people who side with fairness/Democrats — must accept a bill of solely their liking. Is one that would disproportionately benefit the top 1%. They already gave their wealthy donors handouts with the tax cut bill, and yet, here we are again being asked to fall for another trickle down hustle during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Pay the rich, or you won’t get anything essentially boils down to extortion.

6. The predictability of Moscow Mitch's parliamentary stunts isn't the point

What he’s done (or not done) in response to this crisis is what’s important.
