Senate Republicans have still not agreed on a pandemic relief package, but they have confirmed 1 judge for every 1,340 Americans who have died from COVID.
Rep. Bill Pascrell (D-NJ) tweeted:
235 right judges
0 new Covid Relief
0 new stimulus tests
0 new unemployment
314,991 dead Americans
Another judge today. That’s one judge for every 1,340 Americans dead. pic.twitter.com/ulKPJI0Rcx

McConnell’s priorities are clear. He wants to fill the judiciary with right-wing judges so that the unpopular Republican ideology will influence American life even when the Republicans no longer have power in the legislature and executive.
A Senate majority leader who worked for and cared for the American people would have done more COVID relief before poverty rose to levels not seen since the 1960s. If you live in Georgia and believe that poverty, suffering and death are a fair tradeoff for right-wing judges, Mitch McConnell is your type.
America could have a Senate that puts the needs of the American people first, and that Senate can become a reality if the Democratic candidates win the Georgia Senate runoff.
Thousands of Americans die every day because Mitch McConnell is more interested in validating judges than saving their lives.
