Most folks aren't able to easily just "make adjustments" when they must go without an entire paycheck. Or two. Or 5. This Trump Shutdown is devastating American workers.
Cruz and his band of sociopathic brothers and sisters are hell-bent on wrecking everything in their path, no matter what damage they cause.
Because of a scrappy citizen movement and some great political leaders, we are finally showing some signs of progress. Let’s keep our foot on the gas, and finally force the Wall Street gang to pay what they owe.
The Cruz Crazies handed us this victory. We would have had to be political morons to kick it away.
Do we have a deal yet?
We’re at the endgame of this particular episode of Republican craziness. Their logic and their brains have melted away. Their messaging is a toxic stew. Their political strategies are sand in the wind. Their policies are incoherent rage. The biggest questions now are how much damage will they cause, to the country and to themselves. We will soon know the answers because we are almost out of time. The scariest thing is that you can’t cut a deal with people who, uh, think(?) like this. We can only hope that the saner people in the Republican party can find a way around their sociopathic brothers and sisters.
Even after the shutdown's over, we will still have the Wall Street bankers on top of the world, and low-wage working poor on the bottom.
