I wish to flip to one thing else, and that’s that we’d like a reset right here, in my thoughts, for the folks at residence. A little bit of a actuality test that this isn’t regular proper now. Now we have to know that what persons are coping with, that 7.7 million folks have gotten this virus, that 214,000 People have died, and for folks watching at residence and questioning what we’re all doing on this room proper now and perhaps you’re residence since you misplaced your job or perhaps you bought your youngsters crawling throughout your sofa proper now.

People are dying each single day needlessly in a pandemic that solely continues to rage on, and the Senate majority is making an attempt to ram by way of a Supreme Courtroom nominee earlier than they get kicked out of energy in just a few weeks.
These small companies which are struggling don’t have far more time earlier than they shut down for good. The sick, the unemployed, and households everywhere in the nation need assistance, and once they take a look at their televisions, they see a bunch of Republican Senators who’re pretending like none of that is taking place and it’s enterprise as typical in America.
The listening to and the complete affirmation course of that has been engineered by Mitch McConnell and Lindsey Graham are a slap within the faces of the American folks, and Amy Klobuchar introduced a wanted dose of actuality into the Graham run farce.
