Despite the ongoing crisis, our U.S. Senators left D.C. to go home. They haven’t been able to get much accomplished for the American people remotely.
But are they still getting paid? You better believe it.
With some states reopening, McConnell had the reasonable plan to reopen the Senate. But one long-term Democrat is demanding to extend her paid vacation.
From The Hill:
Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) is urging Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) to cancel his plan to bring the Senate back to Washington, D.C., on Monday, saying the House did the “right thing” by deciding not to return next week.
You gotta be kidding me. Even as Americans struggle to cope with this crisis, Sen. Feinstein (a Democrat from CA) is demanding McConnell cancel his plan to reopen the Senate.
She said the House did the “right thing” by shutting down and sending everyone on a vacation.
Really, Dianne? Americans have been forced to stay home. Many of them aren’t getting paid. Hourly workers have been slammed by this situation.
Meanwhile, D.C. fat cats get to go home, while still being paid? How is that right?
Many states are reopening. Some governors are bucking the media’s demands and forging a path to save their economies while keeping people safe.
Yet this senator wants to stay home? I guess that Netflix list isn’t going to watch itself!
Why can’t senators do something to get the economy back on track? They were willing to spend trillions to deal with the shutdowns.
Why can’t they now make plans to get the country working again?
No, Pelosi did the “right thing” by sending all those well-paid bureaucrats home! God-forbid they do anything to help Americans.
SHARE to demand the Senate get back to work – or go without pay!
