I think the leaders of the House and Senate are going to look at him as a "loose cannon".

They're going to be looking to hide him under a desk somewhere

They have removed the abiltiy to comment on the tillis video, it figures. If you have no problem with your actions then you should not worry about what people say about it.

He's been very quiet on Twitter and Facebook as well.

Hey, every little bit counts! A penny here and there still adds up and is still able to be spent - which gov't will do anyway they can. Nickel and dime you to death.

No prob - didn't take it that way. Just sayin again that "technically" those EB benefit checks filter back into the federal and state economies in more ways than one. Taxes and being spent - albeit some amounts are smaller than others.

I am getting a bad feeling about this whole thread now. It has taken an ugly turn and has turned into just a bash fest. It just doesn't sit right anymore. Need to take a break from all this anyway.

Good luck to everyone.

Near the bottom of the page, among the first few posts, there are links to different sources of assistance. I'll try to post back up towards the top so they are more easily found.
Thank you for that insight. This is going to be an unbelievable week for many as I imagine that nerves are frayed and tempers will be short as we try to end this hostage crisis.
