It’s the Republican Senate conference, and in particular people like America’s Dumbest Senator here:
U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson would rather see no new coronavirus stimulus bill than one that includes new spending, the Oshkosh Republican said Friday.
Johnson said in a Friday interview with Breitbart News Tonight that he hopes negotiations stay broken down between the Trump administration and House Democratic leaders on a new pandemic relief package given the trillions Democratic leaders proposed in new spending.
“From my standpoint, the breakdown in the talks is very good news. It’s very good news for future generations,” Johnson said. “I hope the talks remain broken down.”
Johnson does not support any new spending that would add to the federal debt, which is at about $22.8 trillion, according to the U.S. Government Accountability Office. He instead wants any new proposals to spend money already authorized by a relief package passed earlier this year known as the CARES Act.
Mitch McConnell could still get a relief bill passed with mostly Democratic votes, but he’s either incompetent or is just as much of a sociopath as Johnson and either way this country is in incredibly deep trouble.
