Bennet, Dems opposed bill to pay Coasties during shutdown
Thursday, January 31, 2019
I've listened to and followed Senate and House debates and hearings back to early 1950s, and I just witnessed the dethroning of the longstanding champion of the ridiculous, sinister and absolute idiocy, the late U. S. Sen. Joseph McCarthy of Wisconsin during the U.S. Army hearings.
I just witnessed on CSPAN2 a new champion of evil, stupidity and out-of-control showmanship. It’s Sen. Michael Bennet from Colorado. It would not have surprised me if the fellows in white coats went in and took him away.
The issue at hand: The Republicans presented a simple, clean to bill to pay the members of our U.S. Coast Guard as the Army, Navy, Air Force and Marines were being paid, during the Democrats’ shutdown of our national government.
The hardworking life-risking people of our Coast Guard deserve better than this kind of shenanigans. Shame on the Democrats. They are acting at their worst I've ever witnessed.
