Washington D.C. is home to several memorials to our fallen troops. GOP Sen. Joni Ernst has proposed another one, this one to members of our military who fought and gave their lives in the Global War on Terrorism.

Doesn’t seem like something that would come up against too many roadblocks.

And yet:

What is the reasoning behind blocking such a bill?

Not everyone thinks an explanation is necessary. Because they’re too busy using Ernst’s frustration to dunk on and disparage her and her bill (which, incidentally, has support from some Senate Dems, too):

Unless Ernst’s proposed memorial has a $3.5 trillion price tag that also allocates tons of money toward things that have literally absolutely nothing to do with the memorial, we’re not quite sure how blocking her bill is the same as Republicans standing in the way of the “infrastructure” bill.
