If a single woman can do the work of eleven senators, why don't we just get rid of them and hire her?

Asked by rojo (24062points) September 25th, 2018

Republicans hire someone to do their dirty work. Would it not be cheaper in the long run and get the job done just as well, if not better.

Plus, as an added bonus we only have to pay a ridiculous retirement benefit to one person instead of eleven.

She would have to be elected.

Because the Republicans know she can make the coffee and clean up afterwards, too!

Isn’t that sort of what they did?
I’m sure she’s not working for free.

You can’t get rid of them except in an election, but it’s as close as you can get outside of that.

She isn’t replacing eleven senators. She is taking on one task, because as a woman she would have better insight to what would concern women in regards to the particular situation.
If a woman calls a plumber to fix a problem in her basement, does that make him more qualified to be her husband than the man she married?

Parse it any way you like, she is replacing them and replacing eleven of them. Whether she is more competent or versed or presents better politically or qualified make no difference to the fact that she is doing their work for all of them and that makes them superfluous or, if you prefer, dead weight.

This is not all their jobs involve. She is taking one duty, not their entire, individual jobs.
This is just silly.

Edit: however, one or more of them may be dead weight.

Optics. These Repubs are doing exactly the only job they think they have. Get votes in the mid-terms.

They will not risk being seen and heard ganging up on a victimized woman, not when there is this much attention.
