From Perry Gershon:
I am pissed off!
The Republican leader, Mitch McConnell, said yesterday that state and local governments should declare bankruptcy if they find themselves in a financial hole due to the Coronavirus pandemic.
Is he serious?
How in the world do we fight this crisis and bring jobs back if state and local governments are declaring bankruptcy?
Governor Cuomo called out what McConnell said as “offensive”, and “one of the saddest, really dumb comments of all time.” Exactly right.
Mitch McConnell is competing with Donald Trump to be the poster child for demonizing and politicizing a national health crisis.
But what I am really pissed off about is the complete and total silence from Lee Zeldin. Again and again and again, this guy never fights for us. Never!
Even his Republican colleague on Long Island, Peter King said the comments were “shameful and indefensible” and called McConnell the “Marie Antoinette of the Senate.”
But nothing from Zeldin. Nothing.
Nothing but his usual silence in the face of the most extreme in his own party.
Let me be clear, the money the states and local governments are asking for would go to our fire fighters, police officers, EMTs, and healthcare workers.
HEALTHCARE WORKERS! This is who Zeldin will not fight for.
Folks, we need to defeat Lee Zeldin.
