Help me out here. (House passage of the covid package)

There were some RETHUGS in the house that voted to impeach RUMP, BUT NONE voted to pass this package. My question is WHY NOT?

1. Because GOPers don't believe in using government money to help people.

3. Some of the money might go to to the 'undeserving poor' (read blacks)

MAGA no like.

5. To help poor/working class people.

They use plenty of government money for the rich.

2. Because the Covud bill will help people

and contains no tax cuts for the wealthy. Republicsns can't support that.

4. Republicans will vote against what is best for the country if it means

giving Democrats credit for doing something that the people view as positive. If the same package had been labeled as the Republican, or the Trump Relief Program, they would have voted for it en masse.

It is open political warfare with the people as the causalities.

6. I believe policy doesn't matter to them and that

they view obstruction as their sole mission if there is a Democratic president.
