So you think Florida full of Northern transplants that ruined their home states took their pensions (that northern folks left behind are still paying for) a representative of the south?

I lived in the Upstate of South Carolina, mountains of north Carolina and Tennessee good manufacturing jobs low rent and cost of living

You can afford bass boats, atvs, big pick up trucks when the bulk of your salary doesn't go to high taxes and rent
You sound so very clannish, how dare folks from the north move to any southern state? Don't they know 'we' own the south. So, you are still living in one of the states you mention and why is it ok for you to move around but not others?

The problem is that if you are trying to make a point, you can be easily challenged. I think my OP about Republicans are Bonkers makes the same point without the ability of the naysayers to prove me wrong.
Lol, you know and I know right or wrong has no bearing on the loons from the right. You can hit them with facts and videos all day long and they will deny what their own eyes are looking at. Hell, half the time even though it's on tape, they still try denying they said what they said.

They will all be featured in DEM ads against the entire GOP since they would be in charge of the House if the gop wins.

$ 15 an hour barely pays for the waterbill in FL. :)
DeSSantis and other gop governors are intentionally trying to get non-Repubs to move out of their states, making the states redder.

And you live where in the south? A two bedroom apt runs about a thousand or so a month alone in my neck of the woods in central florida and if you want to eat and own a car too, fifteen an hour, no kings are living on that here. Tell us if you would, how does a person making fifteen an hour buy a ten million dollar home fit for a king?
That post was obviously by someone who hates the south and those living in it.

Well, you know how a Trumpist's every accusation is a confession? Know how they keep accusing Democrats of wanting to kill babies?

:unsure:
But they do want to kill babies. They want abortion on demand and a baby dies every time.

28 mil is a lot of money.

Wait, what? For the US government on a critical issue like the baby formula shortage? Republican states spent a lot more on cyber ninja fraudulent 'recounts'.

Here are the 9 Republicans who voted against a bill to help poor families buy baby formula amid the ongoing shortage




'No' to any abortions, and also 'no' to any help in providing baby formula to poor families.
The bill provides 28 million to the FDA. What is the money used for?
Is the money used to start production?
How will the FDA spend the money?
Does spending 28 million solve the baby formula shortage? How?
Has any politician answered these questions?

Why not have a bill that says the FDA can not wait five months to investigate a complaint and approve the restart of production once a plant is shut down?
How is it the FDA could not reach the conclusion that if 41% of the produced baby formula is shut down, there would be a shortage. Perhaps a bill that says incompetent people not be placed in important jobs.

But they love them a fetus. What I don't understand is why so many folks in the south vote republican since they are some of the poorest states in america? How many times and in how many different ways does your leadership show you they don't give two craps about the well being of their constituents. Decade after decade they keep voting for the party that helps them not at all.
Can't fix stupid.

There are two bills. One is the baby formula bill. The other boosts the funding of the FDA. More Republicans voted against the latter than the former. Hope this helps!
