Call me silly, but that doesn't sound how democracy should work. We're finding out how one senator or House member controls what's happening when it comes to legislation.
Despite only having the reins of power in one House the MAGA traitors are trashing the system with abuse and lies. Their colleagues in the Senate support them by obstructing legislation and using their positions to defend the worst president the United States has ever experienced.
Here's a couple of recent examples on what I'm talking about:
1) Republican Sen. Tommy Tuberville is blocking nominations (all by his lonesome) for roughly 250 senior officer promotions to clear the Senate.
How big a deal is this?
His hold threatens to ensnare President Joe Biden's pick for Joint Chiefs Chair, Air Force Gen. C.Q. Brown, along with others preparing to rotate in as many senior military leaders prepare to retire.
It goes to show what one lone asshole can do to cause chaos in our government. This next MAGA moron is really pushing the traitor button.
Sen. J.D. Vance is seeking revenge for Trump's most recent felony indictment for (among other things) stealing top secret nuclear codes by blocking all nominations for the Department of Justice.
It was his cute idea to show allegiance to the corrupt former president by harassing Jack Smith, Merrick Garland, and President Biden. It was a clear signal that he still has his head up Trump's ass.
These blockades are only temporary tantrums that aren't going to aide Trump from being thrown behind bars in the future.
It's apparent even to a layman like me that Congress is going to have to update the loopholes that Republicans are seizing on in both Houses.
When the Democrats win the 2024 election, re-electing Biden and taking control of both Houses, they need to prioritize house rules flaws that give absolute power to one jerk with a bad attitude.
As it stands, because the MAGA-infused Republican Party ignores rules and breaks them with impunity it's imperative that we guard our democracy.
