How does criminally indicted George Santos get to take social programs hostage while still getting paid himself?
"MAGA Republicans will continue to be paid salaries during a government shutdown they cause, so that’s why it’s no big deal to them. They will hold hostage the meager salaries of non-elected Federal civilian employees, along with funding for social programs designed to help the economically vulnerable and disadvantaged during these inflationary times that Republicans otherwise keep complaining about.
This is while simultaneously doing absolutely nothing to improve the quality of the economy and weaponizing the US government against private citizens. - SwampThing

MAGA circus takes America hostage
"Republicans also realize their heavily amped up circus clown hatred/revenge antics ensure they will not win a House or Senate majority for many, many years to come. They are quite familiar with polling conducted following their extremely slim majority 2020 House win whereby they were heavily excoriated by American voters for a significantly strong reliance on hatred/revenge.
They also know their current majority heavily depends upon illegally drawn district voting maps which have been struck down and ordered redrawn by the Federal courts and will dramatically change the face of Congressional representation in 2024.
And other members could lose their place on the ballot box for violating the 14th Amendment by actively giving aid and comfort to insurrectionists.
So now what we see are last ditch desperate hatred theatrics by MAGA Trump loving Republicans to extort whatever power they can.
They’ve given up any pretense of working for the American voters to keep government functioning and improve their daily lives.
Now Republicans simply serve as lapdogs for Trump’s return to power by weakening the country as much as possible, killing economic growth legislation, and attempting to erode the integrity and credibility of his Democrat opponents with baseless accusations." - SwampThing
