The failure to pass CHIP re-authorization is an indication of the growing destruction of the US political system. It would appear that the strategy is to stall and confuse until the these annoying human support efforts are forgotten. The policy of the Trump regime is to destroy representative government by eliminating any pretense of responsibility or any transparency of process. Everything is to be at the mercy of those with power. When in doubt, lie. Lies work best because they don’t cost anything and funding can be used to further fill the oligarch’s pockets. CHIP funding from tobacco is an excellent example. That should have been assigned by law but because it was not it is now gone and will be used for the donor class who owns the nation.
Members of Congress are either corrupt or powerless. I don’t see much hope for this re-authorization unless the Trump regime is removed from power.
