Here are 11 GOP senators who continued punching vets in the cock even after other Republicans stopped

Earlier this week, John McCain’s disappointing son-in-law passed away shown to all what the troops said during a discussion with Lucas Kunce, who competed in the primary of the Democratic Senate of Missouri. (Trudy Busch Valentine won the primary, if you were as curious as we are.)

This was a discussion about getting rid of the filibuster to pass the Honoring Our Promise to Address Comprehensive Toxics Act of 2022, also known as the Honoring Our PACT Act, to provide veterans with the health care they need if they were exposed to toxic potholes during their service. (Why are toxic holes so dangerous? Here’s a good explanation.)

We’re not entirely sure why Ben thought that line of attack was so good from a conservative white Republican. Is he trying to make this Democrat guy look racist? He’s saying we should all be so lucky to have the opportunity to go kill black people, so stop complaining?

Who knows what Meghan McCain’s house husband is truly it means? Let’s not waste too much time worrying.

The Senate finally put his shit together and passed the damn bill yesterday, after Republican Senator Pat Toomey concocted a bogus reason last week to block the bill and 40 Republicans joined him. (They were mad at Joe Manchin for coming out in support of a Houseboat Back Better bill, after all. Unless you really think Republican senators were suddenly upset about a bill they had already passed in June.) Jon Stewart responded by spending the week kicking the shit out of every Senate Republican he could find and call them all fucking liars.


And now magically all the problems are solved and we go from 86 to 11.

Toomey’s shitty amendment, to solve the budget “problem” he had suddenly “found”, failed 47-48. As CNN explains, this bill, once signed by President Joe Biden, will potentially help up to 3.5 million veterans. Do you know who was specifically exposed to these combustion pits? Beau Biden, the president’s son, later died of brain cancer.

Here are the 11 Republicans who ultimately couldn’t bother showing up to vets:

  • Mitt Romney of Utah
  • Rand Paul of Kentucky
  • Mike Crapo from Idaho
  • James Lankford of Oklahoma
  • Mike Lee of Utah
  • Cynthia Lummis of Wyoming
  • James Risch of Idaho
  • Richard Shelby of Alabama
  • Pat Toomey of Pennsylvania
  • Tommy Tuberville of Alabama
  • Thom Tillis of North Carolina

Insider notes that when everyone voted on this in June, all 11 of those senators voted against even then. He’s kind of who’s who of the worst pieces of shit in the entire Senate, plus Mitt Romney, who’s just worried that giving health care to veterans is TOO EXPENSIVE. (Is it more expensive than the “car lift”? Yes, probably, and it doesn’t even get cars on and off.)

As for the others, we’re sure it’s just the usual combination of “fiscal conservatism” and the fact that Republicans are always trash when it comes to veterans.

If for some reason you really want to spend some time analyzing why Republicans suddenly withheld this bill just to change their minds again and vote for it last night, here’s Jon Stewart kicking a conductor in the balls. Newsmax and explains how full of shit the Republicans were about it.
