HOSTAGE ALERT! GOP Threatens Temper Tantrum Over Mattis

By Jed Biggins

Once again, the GOP is threatening to shut the government down if they don’t get their way.  The Senate needs to pass a bill today that funds the government through the first quarter of the year.  If they don’t pass the bill, then the government will shut down AGAIN because the right wing nuts don’t get their way.

To do this, they’ve tucked into he bill the waiver that retired General James Mattis needs to secure to be confirmed as Secretary of Defense.  The GOP is essentially holding a gun to the heads of Senate Democrats with this tactic.

If they don’t pass the bill, they’re responsible for throwing the country into CHAOS before the holidays.  If they do pass the bill, it’s a de facto confirmation of Mattis before they’ve had a chance to even vet him properly.

What a joke!

There’s a long-standing principle embedded in democracies – and that includes AMERICA – that there is civilian control of the military.  And here in the good old U.S. of A., that means that someone needs to be out of the military for at least seven years to be Secretary of Defense.

For someone who claims to want to make America great again, he’s surrounding himself with a while lot of generals.

If you’re sick of the right wing nuts who’ve populated the swamp threatening to shut down the government then like and share this article.  Let your voice be heard!
