What an ass.
 
2022-10-03 8:02:06 AM  
Isn't he supposed to be indicted on trafficking charges?
 
2022-10-03 8:08:14 AM  
THERE WAS OTHER FUNDING IN THERE THAT I DISAGREED WITH!

Yes. Hi. Welcome to federal funding, asshole.

We all know they are lying when they say it, but their stupid voters buy that bullsh*t and repeat it and hold onto it.

Yup.
Got me why he hasn't been arrested yet
 
2022-10-03 8:52:38 AM  
He's also a human trafficking pedophile

That because he knows his base will never know how he actually voted, because that shiat never actually gets reported in their Bizzaro world bubble.

They listen to what they say, and never watch what they do.

hubiestubert: Isn't he supposed to be indicted on trafficking charges?


Nope, that was dropped.

2022-10-03 8:54:08 AM  
And yet somehow, the very constituents that need this aid keep voting for him.

[they bought their tickets.gif]

Voting against federal funding should automatically opt out the district/state you represent from receiving said funding.

Because the people investigating him are connected to his rich father, the entire case has been dropped. Isn't that great? Raped a bunch of kids, everyone knows he did it, but daddy has cash, so I guess his victims are out of luck.

Gym Jordan also. Lot of child rapists, just sitting up there making laws and tons of money, because we don't do a damn thing but shrug.

I'm going to puke into my Raisin Bran now.

Every Florida Republican in Congress voted against Hurricane Ian relief for Florida or they didn't even bother to vote (Hi Marco). All of them will also be easily re-elected. This is why we have a Florida tag and a Murica tag.
 
2022-10-03 9:01:26 AM  
Long term thinking is not republicans' strong suit.
 
2022-10-03 9:05:06 AM  
"Dear Congress"  in a Tweet?  Asshole, you are Congress, and that's not how you do your job.  You want Fed Money, make a goddamn bill.  Or better yet, vote yes on the one that's already written and gets your state Fed Money.  Do you even understand what your job is?
 
2022-10-03 9:05:17 AM  
"...on October 2, Rubio said the bill had been "loaded up with a bunch of things that had nothing to do with disaster relief."

How long have you been in government, now??
 
2022-10-03 9:05:54 AM  
Snarky request deserves a snarky reply:.

Dear Florida Man, here is some federal dollars that Matt voted against.  If you want to be like Matt, tear up this check and head up to Georgia for some primo high school tail.  If you choose to cash iat, please let Matt know you appreciate him not thinking of you.
 
2022-10-03 9:09:15 AM  
Send them the aid but include leaflets explaining that even though Matt Gaetz voted against sending aid so you could suffer more we got it here anyway.
 
2022-10-03 9:10:30 AM  
Do they even bother to listen to the words that fall out of their holes?
 
2022-10-03 9:11:44 AM  
"This was a piece of legislation regarding insulin prices." Wait, really? Did we just back-door sneak this fix in?
 
2022-10-03 9:14:04 AM  
I think the more grating part of his tweet is that it implies that he's salty about the aid that Ukraine is getting.

Just ... fractally shiatty.

Snapper Carr: Voting against federal funding should automatically opt out the district/state you represent from receiving said funding.


We need more policy like this. People would give a shiat who their representatives are if the next district over is receiving aid and your local jackass is farking you over.
 
2022-10-03 9:15:54 AM  
The letter also vowed to "oppose any continuing resolution that expires prior to the first day of the 118th Congress," and any appropriations package put forth by the Democrat-led Congress.

Sure, go ahead... vote to shut down the government right before the mid-terms.  It'll own those pesky dems!

jayphat: "This was a piece of legislation regarding insulin prices." Wait, really? Did we just back-door sneak this fix in?


If that's the truth... He's saying that he denied aid for Florida so that he could also refuse aid to people who need insulin?

In his book that's a win-win
 
2022-10-03 9:20:30 AM  
So throw in funding for planned parenthood in the Florida grift funding bill and see how it goes.
 
2022-10-03 9:22:11 AM  
Step 1:  Pick an issue, preferably one that is "obvious" (in this case, Florida disaster relief)

Step 2:  Put the issue into a piece of legislation and name said legislation after issue

Step 3:  Pack a bunch of unrelated items into the bill

Step 4:  Point and laugh when people vote against the bill because of the unrelated items

are you ok with bullshiat being added to bills that have nothing to do with the purpose of the bill?   as a taxpayer i don't want bridges to nowhere tacked onto school lunch program funding bills.

The most bullshiat part of this is that when the orange dumbfark was in the White House, they complained that insulin was too expensive. Now somehow it's a sacred cow for NovoNordisk that they NEED that money to pay for pharmaceutical research. You know, while still posting record profits.

holding people hostage in one district because spending for a pet project in another district was added to a bill to help disaster victims is pretty shiatty.  i thought only Republicans were vindictive twats, i guess not.

not even remotely.  you should read the bill, being informed is not the same as reading an article with a bias.

I thought Republicans were all about personal responsibility.

People should be held responsible for voting for shiatheads.

Republicans claim to believe in God. Well, God just sent a storm to destroy their infrastructure, and who are they to fight against God's will?

I loved when Katie Porter got out the dry erase board and showed the world that they were outspending drug buybacks from research by a narrow, narrow margin of 48:1. Oh, and that 94% of their research budget was coming from government grants.
 
2022-10-03 9:34:10 AM  
So what were the supposed poison pills inserted into the relief bill that the child rapist and "TFG was using the wrong kind of file cabinet to store stolen top secret documents" refused to vote for? Did someone want to give money to Republicans for something?

In a perfect world, sure. Congress would have time to vote on each specific piece of legislation on its own. But that's not the world we live in.  And it's not the world Gaetz has ever worked in.

Short Title(s) as Passed House

On behalf of my fellow Florida Man in grave need of assistance.... Just send us like half of what you sent Ukraine.

Ok. Here are some 155mm ammunition, Switchblade unmanned aerial systems, radar systems and tactical vehicles.
