A national political reporter for Big League Politics discussed with “Politics and Profits” host Rick Amato the fallout from the special Senate election in Alabama and what the victory by Democrat G. Douglas Jones portends for Stephen K. Bannon and the Republican Party.
McCabe said in the short-term the loss by Republican Roy S. Moore was good news for Republicans, who did not want to have to constantly explain their relationship to a man accused of sexually awkward relationships with teenage girls, but in the long-term, the race opens up a rift in the GOP that had been papered over.
There are Republicans, who want all the power in Washington, and others, who do not want the power in Washington, and these two factions can no longer co-exist in the same party, he said.
“They’re going to have to figure out: either they are going to have a Republican Party or they are not,” he said.
If anti-Trump senators, congressmen and governors do not get in line behind President Donald J. Trump, it is a situation that cannot be sustained, he said.
“I think you are going to see the party break up and become something else,” he said. “That ‘Trump’ Republican Party will survive and then you are going to see the establishment guys, sort of, meet up with the Democrats, where they are more comfortable–they all went to the same schools, they all hang out together, their kids are all on the same soccer teams.”

Amato asked McCabe if he sees new parties with new names.
“Everything comes to a head in 2020, depending on how 2018 goes,” he said. In 2018, all 435 congressmen and one-third of the Senate is up for reelection.
Amato then asked if Stephen K. Bannon is no longer a force to be reckoned with politically because he championed Moore and the election in Alabama had become a key test of his ability to deliver electoral victory.
“People, who paid close attention to that race in Alabama, do not want to be on the wrong side of Steve Bannon,” McCabe said. “Imagine, the movie script you’d be handed with a candidate with liabilities of a Roy Moore–that became a race because of Bannon–the way he carried Moore? It is a miracle he was as close as he was.”

Arizona’s McSally Introduces Resolution to End Senate Salaries Until Stimulus Passes
If the people won’t get paid, neither will their legislators.
Arizona Senator Martha McSally has introduced a Senate resolution that would withhold pay from all U.S. Senators until the chamber passes the eagerly-awaited Coronavirus stimulus, termed as ‘TrumpBux’ by some for the one-time payments of $1,200 to almost all American adults.
Americans have been largely cut off from everyday economic life by the governmental response to an act of God. It’s all too obvious that federal compensation is required.
“If Americans aren’t getting paid, then neither should the Senators failing to support the workers and families who need help making ends meet,” said the freshman Arizona Senator.
“Today, I introduced legislation to have Senators’ pay withheld until relief is passed. It is despicable that millions of Americans are without a paycheck in this time of crisis, while the Senate wastes precious time playing political games. The Senate must pass this relief package now in order to get cash straight to the people.”
Fortunately for Senators that would prefer a path of continued political grandstanding, the planned stimulus may be sent to the President’s desk on Wednesday after negotiations between Chuck Schumer and Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin.
The final estimate of the stimulus cost has been gauged at $2 trillion dollars, a sizable package that will be distributed in a combination of TrumpBux and loans to small and big businesses.
There are some similarities between the TrumpBux proposal and universal basic income. The former isn’t ‘universal-‘ individuals who reported more than $75,000 in income on their 2018 tax return will get less money and those who reported more than $100,000’ won’t get anything.
McSally’s proposal ultimately could prove to be the final metaphorical poker stick to the feet of obstructionist Democrats seeking to delay the stimulus package with feckless political gamesmanship.
