It didn’t even make it past the House today… and well… let’s face it…
The Republicans are blaming the Democrats, claiming the measure would have passed, had Nancy Pelosi not given such a partisan speech on the House floor this morning.
The Democrats are counter-blaming the Republicans, claiming the GOP was being vengeful in not voting for this thing… and that by hatin’ on Nancy Pelosi, they knowingly let the entire country down.
I say both sides are fuckin’ up.
The Dow plummeted further than it ever has in the entire history of the U.S today.
This whole entire situation is… um…
I don’t even know what to say.
It’s jacked up.
We taxpayers never should have been put in this position- being asked to bail out a bunch of fat cats who gambled with their own damn cash and lost- to begin with.
Now that we’re in it, the absolute b.s. is starting to pile high- it’s smelly as hell- and the pile just keeps getting bigger.
We’ve got bickering for the sake of bickering, we’ve got inappropriate earmarking, we’ve got every damn thing except for…
What’s most maddening about all this is that we Americans, whose tax dollars are on the line when Congress does eventually come up with a way out of this cluster-fuck, are the most powerless.
There’s nothing we can do about any of this right now.
We just have to trust that the same people who refused to pass this legislation today, due to their own trivial nonsensical disagreements will eventually do the right thing.
In the meantime, while we wait, let’s all just pray that by the time winter comes, we won’t be so desperate that we find ourselves burning our own kitchen tables simply to heat up our homes.
Depressing, isn’t it?
