Yes, I actually chuckled at the originality of this cartoon. But that doesn’t change the fact that I am mad as hell at Congress for putting politics above a months-ovedue Covid relief bill. Selfish, thoughtless, unfeeling, privileged, utterly heartless “representatives of the people” — the people who have lost or are losing their businesses, their jobs, their homes, even their lives. How can Congress have in its power the means to help so many people within days, and yet let months pass without doing anything!?
Even now, if they do finally pass the bill, it won’t be out of concern, or generosity, or the desire to do the right thing. Certainly not. It will be because they want to go home for the holidays — just like everybody else.
I honestly wonder how they they can sleep at night.
