Moscow Murder Mitch doesn’t have a leg to stand when it comes to bailout $$

For the four federal fiscal years that ended Sept. 30, 2018, the most recent numbers available, Kentucky got $148 billion more from the federal government than the Bluegrass State sent to Washington.

Meanwhile, New Jersey got $71.7 billion less than it sent, and New York got $116.2 billion less.

He needs to be GONE in November. PERIOD.

Keep the magnifying glass on this sorry excuse for a human being...

I don’t know if this counts as virus news or not... [www.washingtonpost.com]

This is typical. not unique to Moscow Mitch.

The wealthier states provide more to the federal government in taxes than the others and get less back. It's a subsidy that brings up the standard of living in those poorer states and while there's debate as to the overall fairness, it's got some good economic benefits, not the least of which are better education and healthcare than they'd otherwise have.

Kentucky needs all the help it can get. Smokers, diabetes, cancer, it’s a wonderland of diseases there. Mitch gets a pass, on the face of it.

The pandemic is a natural disaster. Hurricanes are natural disasters. Some one should ask McConnell that if Florida, Alabama and South Carolina all got decimated by a very large hurricane should we not help their state and local governments with federal funds because to do so would amount to a "red-state bailout".

Moscow Mitch does not get a pass. Both him and his wife belong in jail for years of corruption, cronyism, etc.

Kentucky is getting a new Aluminum processing plant, likely thanks to an oligarch that has been sanctioned. An aluminum smelter plant in Washington state just closed down unexpectedly and put 700 workers out of work.

Can Trump resurrect U.S. aluminum, and who killed it anyway?

I hope you don’t agree with McConnell’s non-sensical stated intention to block aid to blue states so that they declare bankruptcy (which, y’know, they can’t in any case).

Hopefully, we're about to take Mitch out.

I would think you know me better than that.

Obviously McConnell is a hypocrite. Kentucky still needs the nation's help. They are poor, uneducated and don't generate a lot of taxes.

I am not so sure it is that we want to stop paying more. It is that the states that are on the dole are so nasty about giving money to 'those people.' I got into this big time with some relatives in Alaska--which is deep on the federal dole--who were talking about giving money to those people. When I presented just how much they get it shut them up. But only momentarily.

You see, they have worked very hard to have the North Slope oil...

Being unappreciative of the largesse one has enjoyed is a conservative trait apparently. It goes hand in hand with believing, knowing all the work was done without outside help.

Well, whocouda seen this coming from Mitch, as Red states open prematurely:

Quote

In an interview on Monday, the Senate majority leader said it’s “highly likely” the next coronavirus response bill will aid local governments whose budgets have been decimated by lockdowns and now face spiraling deficits. But to unlock that money, McConnell said he will "insist" Congress limit the liabilities of health care workers, business owners and employees from lawsuits as they reopen in the coming weeks and months.

Nice how he sandwiched his real target of protection between “health care workers” and “employees”? Exactly who is going to sue, say, an ER/ICU nurse, or a meat processing employee?

No one, that’s who. But when business owners say “work now or be fired”, and employees end up sick or dying, well, they mustn’t face legal responsibility. Heavens no!

He's covering his bases.

Shielding employees shields employers. It's likely that in many cases you can sue an employee and if they can demonstrate that they were acting in the course of their employment then the employer may still be held accountable even if not directly liable.

Is coronavirus making people lawsuit crazy? Well, yes, some people:

Quote

Barr memo threatening lawsuits against coronavirus restrictions is a warning shot

... This new declaration by the nation’s chief law enforcement officer, who has heavily politicized the Justice Department during his tenure, should be read as a warning to governors and mayors that they may face challenges in federal court if they don’t move quick enough to relax restrictions.

...with the DOJ taking the sides of the Open Up now Now NOW!1l! crowd.

Lawsuits are just another one of those things that Republicans are dead set against until they think it will benefit them.

Then it’s sue, baby, sue.
