Americans are facing a crisis that will impact millions for years to come. But instead of serving those they represent, Congress is focused on keeping its allies happy—despite Saudi Arabia’s bombing of civilians and reports that Israel is trying to start a war with Iran…
On today’s edition of ‘Why Isn’t Anyone Talking About This?’ Americans are facing a looming crisis right now, as millions are out of work and millions of those face the threat of eviction as the little aid they did receive from the government begins to diminish. And what is Congress doing in response? Not a damn thing.
Instead, members of Congress seem to be too busy arguing and claiming they just can’t come to an agreement—that is, until they decide which major corporations to bail out with the next massive stimulus package they pass. Meanwhile, the average American who already didn’t have a few hundred dollars saved to combat an emergency, is facing the reality that they may not be able to pay rent this month. But they’re still expected to pay their taxes to fund a government that is failing to do anything in their favor.
While that government continues to insist that its members just can’t agree, they all magically seem to agree when it comes to determining how many tens of BILLIONS of dollars they will spend on “defense” each year. Yet even though we now know that every war the US is currently engaged in was started based off of lies and propaganda, that hasn’t stopped the body of representatives—who didn’t even authorize those wars in the first place—from pulling the funding that keeps them in the same endless cycle.
Congress seems much more intent on keeping their foreign allies happy, even when Saudi Arabia is ramping up bombing and killing civilians in Yemen once again, and reports are indicating that Israel is pushing for a war with Iran before the election—based on the belief that they already have President Trump’s full support. But in reality, the last thing the US needs is another war, and it should be more focused on getting out of the conflicts that were started decades ago.
In this day and age, we have come to know Congress for having corporate interests and foreign interests, but when we are going to start reminding them that they ONLY interest they should have is the American people they are supposed to be representing and serving—because that is something everyone should be talking about.
