The performance art “deficit hawks” are on the ballot.
The choice is between $2,000 and Ted Cruz and Rand Paul speeches.
It was Turtle’s choice to make $2,000 the issue of this campaign. He could have easily passed it and personally blocked it six times. Donald Trump supported it. The House supported it. The Senate would have supported it. 81% of Americans and 80% of Republicans supported it. Turtle preferred to gamble on retaining his Senate majority over giving you $2,000. That’s how much he hates you.
Note: The check could have easily gone out with Trump’s name on it and Republicans would have gotten credit for it and made good on their rhetoric about being the party of populism and the “working class.”
