1. Every penny of spending was authorized by a prior Congress...

including these gasbags now complaining.

How about the huge military budget that is a good half of the federal budget but can't even be audited. It includes vast numbers of projects the military doesn't even want, but includes bragging points or every district.

2. To say nothing of the 30%+ federal sales tax they'd tack on if they could

A massive tax increase for most Americans (most of whom pay an effective federal income tax of 20% or less) - and the guaranteed ruin of millions of businesses.

What then, what do Repugs care. Their bankrollers would get their big tax cut.

10. So will reQublicOns agree not to spend any money

on investigating Hunter's laptop?

investigating the so-called stolen elections of 2020 & 2022?

investigating Hillary's e-mails, or Benghazi?

investigating Hillary's secret clan that meets in a pizza basement?

investigating George Santos's lies?

11. The only one on that list which SHOULD be...

investigated is Santos (again, if that's his actual name) and his non-stop litany of lies.

All the rest have been investigated and have been found to be nothing but GQP distractions or outright lies.

12. Times sure have changed in the last 50 years

Believe I'm correct that every R voted to impeach Nixon, now a days they circle their wagons around
any of their own for any reason. They would let tfg go for killing someone on 5th avenue!

13. Nixon resigned before

Nixon resigned before the House voted on Articles of Impeachment after being confronted by Republican leaders

15. Come this September.......when the squeeze really gets played out, this really is going to expose

these fascist republicans for what they really are.....and every senior or disable person that voted for these republican creatin's you own this..... it is that simple.......and that includes every state with a lot of seniors......you just got a 8.7% increase in your socials security payments ...... do you think for one minute that the bonds that you bought to help your account should be cut............if so your a idiot.....this is what they are talking about the full faith of the government. These two yahoos from Kentucky and from California want to take down your funds....literally.....and then what do you have a 30% tax they want to enact ......You might as well go to grocery store and get a card board box and write on it......''homeless god bless" and stake out a corner, or go and live with your independently wealthy kids..............
