The honeymoon was fun while it lasted.
Whichever Democrats had developed a soft spot for Mitt Romney after he voted to remove President Trump from office are about to have a change of heart. Romney laced into Democrats last night over their filibustering of a desperately needed relief bill. This came after Nancy Pelosi came into town and blew up the process in which Republicans had already passed her original bill with minimal changes.
As for funds for companies, it’s to keep entities that employ millions of Americans from folding—it’s to save jobs. Keep this up a little longer and we will go from social distancing to social destruction.

Romney is 100% right here. The left-wing talking point that helping corporations is somehow bad and needs to not be in the bill is economic suicide. Those corporations provide many of the jobs people are going to lose if relief doesn’t come soon. Of all the times for this communist garbage to be propagated, this is perhaps the worst in modern history.
We are staring at the total destruction of our economy, and for what? So Democrats can try to secure putting union workers on corporate boards? What happens when there’s no more corporation left to be on the board of? It’s insanity and it’s incredibly dangerous.
Meanwhile, the same Democrat allied media that loved Romney five minutes ago doesn’t seem to care what he has to say on this matter.
Attention, journalists: remember the Strange New Respect you discovered for Mitt Romney during impeachment?

Something tells me CNN and MSNBC won't be hailing Romney for this (correct) take https://t.co/XCJ3ug8LUn

It’s been said a lot in the last 12 hours and it’ll be said a lot in the next: Democrats must pay a huge price for this. Republicans, Independents, and disaffected Democrats must do everything they can in November to rip every vestige of power from their hands. People are now going to literally die because they chose to play politics right now. That won’t be forgotten.
