Always Remember; Never Forget. The Heroes Act…

was passed by the House of Representatives MAY 15, 2020. That’s days short of three months ago. For three months, the Republicans have sat on it even though it became evident that it would not cover the length of the Covid-19 pandemic.

The Republicans have sat around doing God knows what waiting for Americans to lose their unemployment extension and their ban on foreclosures and evictions. Why?

Could it be for their corporate sponsors to use their suffering as a bargaining chip to protect their donors from liability for forcing their workers to be exposed the Covid?

Could it be so that their investor friends could buy foreclosed on homes for pennies on the dollar to sell as they did after each of our last natural disasters?

Could it be so that could re-rent their properties for a higher rent after evicting their tenants?

And then to have the President show off to his buddies at his private golf club by signing a meaningless signing statment that can not consitiutionally be enacted.

Just a suggestion –

Really?

All you politicians who have left Washington to go home and “Campaign” ought to return to Washington and work on the really serious problems facing your constituents. You could work on like:

Covid-19,

rampant institutional racism,

poverty, infrastructure,

universal health care (any universal health care for a start),

climate change etc.

If you actually worked for your constituents, your actions would be your reason for being re-elected.

It’s embarassing to see you all running around and pandering to the PACs. If you did your job you wouldn’t need to spend all your time groveling for donations.

DO YOUR JOB!

JUST DIE DAMN IT!

It should be evident to even the Trumpsters that what the Republicans want is for the elderly (who are on Social Security. Medicare or Disability ) and the working poor (who are on Medicaid) and people of color (who are dispropornately affeced) to die. How can I charge that?

Why is he holding back on testing?

Why else would he want he elderly to attend his pep-rallys?

Why would he want to curtail testing?

Why isn”t his administration seeing that there are adequate medical protections for our health care workers?

Why does FEMA send “junk” to the providers in nursing homes?

Why has he silenced the CDC?

WHY ARE THE REPUBLICANS SAYING OR DOING NOTHING?

The death of these non-one percenters are the only hope this president and his Senators have of gettng elected.

At the same time, their deaths would decrease payments for Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid freeing up mney to dealwith the exploding debt they created with their first stimulus to the one percent.

Wake up!

A Matter of Choice

Which would you choose?  Which have the Republicans chosen?  Which will the Democrats choose?

Osterholm, who has advised several presidents on pandemics during the past 2 decades, co-authored the nine-page report, titled “COVID-19: The CIDRAP Viewpoint,” with epidemiologists from the Harvard School of Public Health and formerly from the CDC.
The team used prediction models, historic pandemic data, and published reports about COVID-19 to forecast the next 2 years. Based on that, they said government officials should prepare for a long-term pandemic. They discussed three scenarios:
  1. The first scenario could be that the first wave of COVID-19 this spring is followed by several smaller waves during the summer and the next 2 years, gradually decreasing throughout 2021. This could vary by geography and require periodic shelter-in-place recommendations.
  2. The second scenario could be that the first wave is followed by a larger wave in the fall or winter, and then smaller waves in the 2021, which could require shelter-in-place measures again in the fall. This scenario mimics the 1918-1919 pandemic.
  3. The third scenario could be a “slow burn” of transmission during the next 2 years, which may not require additional shelter-in-place orders but will continue to cause new cases and deaths.

IT WILL MAKE A DIFFERENCE SO VOTE.  VOTE EARLY.  VOTE BY MAIL.

Fight those who want to limit the citizens who can vote.

IT’S YOU CHOICE!

 

What Do These People Have In Common?

Those in nursing homes, the elderly, the poor, the people of color, the employed poor are most likely to vote Democratic in the coming election.

They are also the people who the Republicans are letting, even encouraging, through their administrations both national and state to get Covid-19 and die.

Citizens who are dead cannot vote.  This is just another way to suppress voting. That is the ONLy way that the Republicans can win future elections.  It is alsoa new way to reach the “final solution”.

Stop Listening to Politicians; Listen to the Scientists and Doctors!

Politicians, particularly Republicans, are mainly interested in protecting their wealthy donors and their businesses.

Their administration has NO PLAN. Remember the Republicans wanting to repeal Obama care? They didn’t have a plan to replace it then and they still don’t.
