44 States out of relief funds, yet Senate Democrats voted to block the Republicans attempt to provide immediate relief for the 44 States who have run out of PPP funds.
The Chicago Tribune AP article titled: Uncertainty on Virus Relief Bill likely to stretch past election, report did not include any information about the Senate bill that failed yesterday which would have helped the 53 million workers who live paycheck to paycheck, many who need relief because of government mandated pandemic shutdowns of their workplaces.
In previous post titled: Who to Blame for Covid Relief Failure? the Senate attempted to pass an immediate aid PPP relief bill to expedite aid to the States before the Election.
Sadly, not one Democrat voted to support the Bill. The Bill failed October 21 in the Senate to obtain 60 votes because of the explanation given by Senator Schumer, that the Bill contained a “poison pill that Democrats will never support.
The Purpose of This Post
Is to relate an ancient proverb and an occurrence in history to the sad affair for voters to consider “who to blame” when they vote in two weeks.
Whoever shuts their ears to the cry of the poor will also cry out. (Proverb 21:13)
What’s My Point?
The above proverb is a warning that can be interpreted in numerous ways.
The Politicians have shut their ears to the immediate needs of the 53 million people they represent who live paycheck to paycheck
Sadly, politicians know the poor are not always very well informed about political issues or games being played by politicians or the deaf ears would not remain sale and have responded to their needs for urgent relief.
My point is that sadly, the mainstream media, will not report anything detrimental about the Democrats or suggest a simple fix to the Republicans to remove that poison pill they object to.in the Bill to pass the Bill.
In My Opinion
People living paycheck to paycheck need help when government mandates laws to prevent them from obtaining a paycheck.
Sad, but perhaps those in need won’t mind waiting for a package agreement until after the election?
Or perhaps the “package deal being sought by the Democrats for other cry’s that are not as urgent as needed by the 53 million who are living paycheck to paycheck until after the election,
In my opinion, this sad affair reminds me of the history event of Marie Antoinette who upon hearing about the poor crying out for bread made a purported cavalier statement for the hungry to “let them eat cake”

Will the news media remain silent and in effect do the same – “shut their ears and eyes to the cries of the poor” in the 44 States who have run out if funds?
Should voters answer the in the similar way to the present political leaders in Congress along with the silent news media sources on the issue of the cries of the 44 States when the “cry out” to be reelected as stated in the second part of the proverb?
