There is an old saying, “A good leader leads by example.” One thing the government needs to realize is “We the People” are watching. We are also tired of being locked up in our homes, and our small businesses shut down. For the country to get back up and running, the government needs to step up and lead by example.
The House of Representatives is going to take off another week while Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell says he wants the Senators back Monday morning. Democrat Senator Dianne Feinstein wants McConnell to back down from his plans. It is time these games come to an end.
Feinstein put out a written statement that read, “I ask the majority leader to reconsider his plan to reconvene the Senate. He would bring 100 senators and many more staff members and reporters into close proximity while Washington itself remains under a stay-at-home order. There is no way to do this without increased risk. This is the wrong example for the country.”
There is no reason if the country can open back up slowly and follow their own mandates of wearing gloves and face masks, our elected officials should be able to suck it up and get back to work for the American people. Since Feinstein is 86-years-old, it would be understandable to let those who are elderly stay home.
As the Republicans are ready to get down to business, Democrats continue to play their childish games. Even Schumer put in his two cents, which isn’t worth much, “The GOP leader should change his plans in the interest of public health and sending the right message to the nation.”
Feinstein continued, “The only things that have been shown to reduce the rate of infection are sheltering in place and social distancing, neither of which is possible if we return to the Capitol. This is not the time to back off of protective measures when the disease is not yet in check.”
So if not now, when? We all know the Democrats are only doing this to stop Trump from getting elected. Everyone by now should see that. There are always excuses and lies put forth by the “do nothing” Democrats.
McConnell put his foot down and is not playing games with these sorry excuses for public officials. He told Fox News Radio, “Senators would not sit on the sidelines.”
He continued, “We feel like if people on the front lines are willing to work during the pandemic, we should be as well. And so the Senate will come back; we’ll be in session next week.” This is a true leader and one who isn’t afraid of lazy bums who need pacifiers and bibs.
People are sick of how the Democrats are so jealous and hate-filled toward the President that they neglected to do their jobs for the past three and a half years. Some are saying, let them do because it exposes them more to the public.
The truth is, only Trump and the GOP have done a marvelous job while fighting an internal enemy of the nation. It would be safe to ask, why do we need the Democrats anyway? They are a waste of taxpayers’ money.
McConnell assured everyone by saying, “The Senate will practice proper safeguards and work safely, including proper spacing and masks where appropriate.”
Senator Feinstein continued to press the issue by writing further, “Bringing 100 Senators from around the country, including many coronavirus hotspots, along with many more staff, credentialed press, and others, to this environment risks all of us. It also sends the wrong message to the American people, most of whom are being asked or directed to stay at home.”
So, where is the “wrong message being sent to the American people?” Is it where COVID-19 is as bad as everyone said it was showing a 98 percent survival rating? Is it that the projection is going to be two million-plus deaths in America when it runs the same as a regular flu season?
How about we go deeper? Do we get the wrong message where we face fines or imprisonment if we attend a church service in our own vehicles? The truth is, as long as the governors keep their states locked up, they get federal funding while we get house arrests and cabin fever.
Democrats can only keep this up for so long, but their time is running out because Trump is still our President!
