I stumbled across a tweet from Congressman Dan Crenshaw from Texas that made my jaw hit my desk.
Yeah. You read that right.
All those Democrats in Congress who are swarming onto Twitter to share sob stories about those poor Federal employees working without pay voted no.
Including Rashida Tlaib who shared her grief over TSA agents not getting paid.
If you won’t be numb to human suffering, why did you vote NO, Rashida?
Never in the history of this country has it been legal to make people work for free but that’s what’s happening to federal employees. This can never happen again.https://t.co/mqTLNh6lhY— Rep. Peter Welch (@PeterWelch) January 22, 2019
Except for slavery. But I get it. You’re invested in the sob stories.
But, if this modern slavery so disgusts you, Congressman Welch, why the heck did you vote NO?
It breaks his damn heart!!!!
Oh, boo hoo hoo!!! Those TSA sob stories really get me where I live, Eric.
So tell me, Eric. Why did you vote NO?
But surely the Warrior for the Working Man Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez voted yes.
Wrong. She voted no.
Oh, dear! Those poor people. And they’re AMERICANS!!!!!
I’m sure, Teddy here voted to pay them.
Um (checking list). Nope! Ted voted NO.
Dem Reps. Raskin & Khanna join the protest at Hart Senate Office Building in solidarity with employees furloughed + working without pay — 33 minutes of silence, one for each day of the shutdown pic.twitter.com/vxEWZUljkn— J.D. Durkin (@jiveDurkey) January 23, 2019
Raskin and Khanna you say?
Huh. Let me check….
Yup! They both voted NO too. So I guess that means they’re protesting themselves.
I could do this all day, folks.
But I think you get the idea.
Two hundred and twenty-two Democrats voted NO.
Because they care so much about those poor Federal employees forced into working without pay by meanie-meanie-jelly-beanie Trump.
No they don’t.
The Democrats in Congress are far more invested in peddling sob stories those poor government workers forced to toil without pay than they are in actually paying them.
It’s all about the narrative you see.
If a few hundred thousand Federal employees are having to work without pay to give the Democrats a win, then so be it.
After all, you can’t make a Resist Omelet without breaking a few eggs.
