Democrats are hellbent at keeping the nation under lockdown and that also includes Congress which is currently enjoying an extended taxpayer-funded vacation due to the coronavirus.
With Republican Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell ready to get back to work on Monday, he is facing resistance from top Senate Democrat Dianne Feinstein who is now demanding that he reverse course.
According to the octogenarian who is a living testament to the need for a constitutional amendment on term limits, it is too dangerous for the Senate to reconvene during the crisis and that McConnell needs to cancel his plans.
Di Fi’s demand comes after Nancy Pelosi refused to reconvene the House as she hits the media circuit and gobbles down gourmet ice cream in her San Francisco mansion while jobless Americans starve.
It is now no longer debatable that the Democrats are partially responsible for crashing the U.S. economy in order to bend the curve against President Trump’s reelection chances in November.
Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) is urging Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) to cancel his plan to bring the Senate back to Washington, D.C., on Monday, saying the House did the “right thing” by deciding not to return next week.
“I ask the majority leader to reconsider his plan to reconvene the Senate. He would bring 100 senators and many more staff members and reporters into close proximity while Washington itself remains under a stay-at-home order. There is no way to do this without increased risk. This is the wrong example for the country,” Feinstein said in a statement.
Feinstein — who at 86 is the oldest senator — sent a letter to McConnell and Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) on Wednesday that said the GOP leader should change his plans “in the interest of public health and sending the right message to the nation.”
“The only things that have been shown to reduce the rate of infection are sheltering in place and social distancing, neither of which is possible if we return to the Capitol. This is not the time to back off of protective measures when the disease is not yet in check,” Feinstein wrote.
On Tuesday, Pelosi send her underling Rep. Steny Hoyer out to deliver the news that the House would effectively refuse to do its job by staying on recess indefinitely.
