Mehdi: Wealthy GOP Senators Don’t Need $2,000—So They Think You Don’t Either | All In | MSNBC 1

 

“I guess Ron Johnson wasn't so concerned about our children's future when he voted to spend around $2 trillion on the Trump tax cuts, which by the way increased his own $39 million fortune,” says Mehdi Hasan on the hypocrisy of GOP senators opposing stimulus checks. Aired on 12/29/2020.

  1. Looks like Senate and congress is millionaires club! How can they represent someone that looks like me when they can’t relate to nothing we are going through

  2. Remember this at the voting booth. The Republican party should burn.

  3. If you have to say “I’m not heartless”…..you most certainly are

  4. 641 billionaires just got a trillion bucks richer this year. That’s the Republican Party.

    • @Steve D did you think someone asked for your opinion? Oh my, you’re hearing voices; thus, experiencing difficulty deciphering the difference between a direct quote and paraphrase in layman’s conversational speech in verbal and written communication; ie. text, email, etc

      Funny how they still file for stimulus money.

    • @Gary Campbell
      So, what’s your point? It was the Republikkkans that voted against giving the aid.

      Brilliant comment !!!! Now have a good laugh about Donnie before he leaves the White House. Watch https://youtu.be/vSN6vQlSzsM. The funniest AntiTrump Sketch ever.

    • Multimillionaire parasites that have never done a day’s work in their lives: Classify them as the parasites they are, strip them of ALL their assets and wealth, redistribute it to the people. All of it. Every penny, every inch of property, every yacht. Sell it all off. Let them get real jobs. Or die in a gutter, where leeches belong.

  5. We’ve had enough of Dead Eye Barbie and her sidekick Chicken little. Georgia, are you listening?

    • @Alan Peters more like sid from ice age 😂

    • And the other Barbie went to Georgia to help Kelly Loeffler.

      Ivanka likes being around millionaires.

      Ivanka was supposed to help women and children but did she as the Senior Advisor. NO.

      You have never seen Ivanka Trump being with regular Americans and in their neighborhoods.

      And you never will.

      I haven’t heard Dave Perdue or Kelly Loeffler say what they are going to do for the people of Georgia.

      She looks like a Muppet

  6. Let’s face it, to them we are just slaves given the elusion of choice and freedom.

  7. Fun fact: 9 of the 10 states with the most people living in poverty are run by republicans.

  8. “I’m not heartless” is something every heartless person has ever said.

    This is a dictatorship when only bills selected by MBITCH can be voted on. That’s not a democracy! Wtf

    • Yes, I am only beginning to realize that. What a pathetic man McConnell is.

    • Mitch has been a DICTATOR for 12 years now. In the first 8 years of his dictatorship he did nothing. In the just ended 4 years he chose do do some things

    • I have never understood this. Why isn’t there a rule that any and all bills passed by the house MUST get a vote (within, say, 3 months or so). Sure, a lot of bills would die in a swift (pro-forma) session but at least every senator gets a say. This is unfair to the republican senators that might support a bipartisan bill as well.

    • @mrwensveen those rules would be approved by Mcbitch first, anyways why do u think the democrats want Georgians to vote for democrats? Because more democratic senators would tilt the balance of power away from Mbitch, also if there was election fraud, democrats would just rigged the election so all democrats win the senate and house, it makes no sense to have a president but the republicans control the senate, democrats learn that during obamas presidency when Mbitch prevented any bill that obama wanted for 6 years

  10. They have an unlimited checking account when they voted for tax cuts for the rich. Disgusting

      Linda- You know what totally blew my mind.. When the first covid relief package was passed and all at once millions were out of work here in Florida, Fisher Island’s HOA the most luxurious place for millionaires in all of Florida receives a million dollars!! I was like WTF!!! They didn’t accept it.. Why was it sent to them in the first place???!!??

    • Shameless hypocrisy from shameful disgraces to this country. No other way to characterize it…

    • And pork-barrel projects to enrich themselves and their corporate backers, and when multinational tax-exempt mega-corporations need hand-outs because they gambled and lost their clients’ money (remember the bank bailouts?).

      Remember: Republicans don’t care about the american people, because they themselves ARE NOT PEOPLE. Never were, never will be. They are parasites. Nothing more.

  11. Chris Murphy is a good egg.
    Those rich Republicans are rotten apples–stinking up the barrel.

  12. Vote them out in Georgia.

    And people STILL don’t see that we live in an oligarchy

    • to be fair, oligarchy has been in charge since the beginning of human society. unfortunately, the rich always hold the power.

    • The rich are trying to make usn fight against each other. White against black against latino against asians and native americans, when it’s really a class war of the rich vs. the poor, with the poor fighting for the scraps.

    • Fruitopia

    • there is no clear political theory that would show the real hidden contour of power-the power of a small group-the oligarchy. all political theories hide real power and promote unrealistic constructs, such as” representative power”,” civil society”,” separation of powers”, and others. management methodology/management practice is presented to us as power. It’s the way of the West – power in shadow, clowns on front.

  14. trump never cared about anyone getting $2000. in fact he cost people on unemployment $300. must be art of the deal…

  15. Republicans care nothing about the people. Vote Democrat in georgia. We need mitch McConnell out of power in the Senate

    • @Andy Postema Lol. I live in the valley, one of the more poor parts of the state, and you really don’t see many of those people. In my travels to San Francisco, I’ve also not seen many homeless people at the city or on the trail from Southern to Northern California.

    • @Mitch Haelann Hope that helps a bit. I really do wish there was more coverage on what’s going on in Democrat run states but the media seems to only have two narratives- Trump is bad and COVID is the end of humanity.

    • @Wolf Tamer I went to Minneapolis immediately after the rioting and arson took place this year. My friend lives 5 miles away from Lake Street and from her driveway, you couldn’t tell anything had changed. I walked a few miles and all I saw was broken glass, burnt down buildings and bullet casings in the street. What’s your point? You didn’t see it so it didn’t happen? California’s a big place, with a huge problem.

    • @Andy Postema So, an extended blog-post from some nobody. Got it.

    • @Mitch Haelann Shall I post every single video? There’s dozens of examples of each, you’re just set in your beliefs. And that’s fine. Ignorance is bliss. We’re all going to be living under a democratic leadership again soon anyway. I’m sure you’re one of those people that believes this was an honest election and thinks the hundreds of videos and testimonies in court about the shady practices that took place were “just some stuff from some nobody”.

  16. He doesn’t want to leave the children with debt but doesn’t care about leaving them without food. Why do we keep putting up with this?

  17. America, please don’t forget when the election time comes, and Georgia, please kick out these hypocrites🙏🏻🙏🏻

    Looks like Nero golfed while Rome burned.

  19. If someone has to say “they aren’t heartless”, then they are lying.
    Generous and kind people don’t have to go around telling people that they are kind, their actions speak louder than words.

  20. Some of “our” children are starving now. They’re not thinking about the future beyond dinner.
