The Covid bill

It has finally passed and will do immeasurable good for so many in America.

And it passed, as always, with no Republican Support though 76% of Americans and a majority of Republicans in the country were in favor of it.

If you need a hint of how divided this country is right now, consider this: a bill that will enable more vaccines, give money to millions of families--taking some children out of poverty by tax breaks, pay rents to prevent evictions, secure unemployment benefits through September, help small businesses and provide states and local governments with money to deal with the pandemic--ALL OF THAT, was not supported by a single Republican in the U.S. Congress!!!!

Take a breath, beloved, and ponder that.

Ponder it well.

That's where we are right now.

Alas.
