Np but eh, not quite.

I make $1,100/mo and will get about $100/mo from it. So, for my bottom of the totem pole wages, it's nothing spectacular but it does help.

If I made three times that, I'd get $300/mo, which would equal $1,200.

The Dept of Labor said this morning that $1,200 additional income per worker will be the U.S. average.

Wouldn't hold this past him at all.


No... but you'll sure as hell hold a rumor against him at the first opportunity, won't you?

Amateurish at best.

Wouldn't mind finding out this was more than a rumor. In fact, what the hell, go ahead and start chiseling it at this point purely because of the massive value we'd get as a nation from so many fools choking on their coffees when it was announced.

Ikr?

I swear, every time I see one of these Clickbait headlines I think "have they got some facts?" And every damn time it's a "sources familiar with" or "anonymous source says" etc.

Wtf happened to facts?

Someone who makes roughly $30,000-$40,000 per year will get $1k-$1,200 from the payroll tax cut over 4 months and it diminishes based on earnings from there.

The cutoff point is $4k per month so you have to be the upper echelon to see quadruple digits. Nonetheless, lots of money in people's pockets.

It's a shame he didn't make it retroactive to July 1st like he originally floated on Friday, that would've been a nice little check.

This truly is a non event, a total media beat up
I find it funny how easily people are set off by nothing, both sides



It was created by some reporter to poke fun at Trump for people who don't like Trump to laugh at and comment on, sparking conversation about how much they think he sucks.

Whether it's for him or against him, these are the majority of the articles on left and right wing media websites respectively. Articles making Joe Biden look bad for example are popular on right wing media and shared here alot for fun conversation pieces.

In the end, it's all a bunch of sideshow garbage to occupy your time if you enjoy it with your friends. Then, you can give each other stars! Aw man, this broken bull# record is so exciting. I can't wait for the next mud-pit post.


LOL I'm willing to admit Trump is egotistical enough to think that though not sure he would point it out to a congress woman. His ego is obvious has been obvious ever since he has been in the public eye like the 1980's. Can you admit Biden's mental alertness is getting worse everyday?

Indeed. That's why he needs a "strong" VP but that's where it gets scary.

Suppose he wins and his VP is doing alot of behind the scenes Presidency for him. All he's concerned with in picking a running mate is what will get him the win: Female and black.

He doesn't really care as much for their skills, motives, etc. If she's white, that's a no-go. Has to be a black woman for the win, regardless of the substance of the person themselves.

That's scary in itself because it could end up being a weak platform to run the country properly during a pandemic and a recession.

Oh, I was just looking at it from my perspective.

That must mean most people make three times as much money as I do which sounds about right because I'm full time at a restaurant. Flipping stocks is my only hope for now.

I need a new job. As I understand it, federal income tax is not withheld, it's just the 7.65% for social security and medicare. My state also has an income tax. Do most states have income tax?

Meanwhile, Trump's plan to extend special federal unemployment benefits, albeit at a lower level, rests on states finding more money for laid-off workers and is sure to be undercut by the busted budgets of governors who have seen treasuries cleaned out by the fight against the coronavirus.

"Well, if they don't, they don't," Trump said on Saturday about governors agreeing to his plan. "That's up to them. But if they don't, they don't. That's going to be their problem. I don't think their people will be too happy. They have the money."
These and other deficiencies of the executive actions mean that two goals -- getting money quickly to struggling Americans and stimulating the economy -- are unlikely to be improved much by his attempted show of force.

By Sunday evening, after a day of negative reaction from the states, the President appeared to be rowing back his demands for governors to contribute 25% of extended unemployment benefits. He only succeeded in adding more confusion.

"We have a system where we can do 100% or we can do 75%, they pay 25, and it will depend on the state," Trump told reporters before returning to the White House from his resort in New Jersey. "And they will make a application. We will look at it, and we'll make a decision."

www.cnn.com...



One of Trump's top economic advisers, Larry Kudlow, threw out a bewildering collection of figures -- ranging from $700 to $800 to $1,200 -- apparently conflating the maximum ceiling of state and federal benefits and a payroll tax holiday -- that represent an absolute best cast scenario for the President's scheme.

Speaking on CNN's "State of the Union" on Sunday, Kudlow said the White House hadn't even asked which states could afford to pay $100 a week to workers in benefits -- the amount Trump is demanding states shoulder as part of his plan for a reduced $400 in federal payments.

What will Trump'ss executive actions actually do? Everyone is confused
"We will probably find that out today and tomorrow," Kudlow said.

Trump's memorandum calls on states to pay out 25% of the total federal unemployment benefit of $400. But if a state does not have the money and can't pay, it won't receive the other $300 from the federal government and workers will only be left with existing state unemployment benefits. States will also have to set up an entirely new system to deliver the additional aid.

New York's Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo said Sunday that Trump's initiative was "laughable."
"You can't now say to states who have no funding, you have to pay 25% of the unemployment insurance," the governor said.
Even Republican Gov. Mike DeWine of Ohio -- a must-win state for Trump in November -- said on "State of the Union" that he's not yet sure if his state will take the federal money for unemployment.

If facts were focused on, then they would be forced to admit that much of what this president has done has been perfectly legal, in the best interests of the United States, and the hatred of him is ridiculous bull# fomented by petty, small minded hacks. Not something many folks wish to recognize staring them back in a mirror each time they pass one, thus... facts are ignored and we get worthlessness like this thread topic.

We tried to make something of it but it wasn't to be despite lax OT and masked profanity mud-pit rules.

So yet again, State governers refuse to accept the POTUS' help.

They say they can't afford it but take handouts from lobbyists to line their own pockets.

"Laughable".

Good word.

I think the ultimate fact at play here is that Trump is President because he left the Democrats. That is why they howl, because he left and became successful. Had he stayed, they would be calling him the greatest of all time. Especially when acting a fool on Twitter.

Think I am wrong? Consider that over $22 million has been raised to support the looters and rioters by leftest celebrities. And right about $0 raised to help out the victims of looters and rioters by those same celebrities....but, uh Trump bad and something...

Was the Federal Government footing the entire bill on unemployment bonuses for the CARES act or was it the states?

Trump asking the states to throw in 25% and them whining makes it sound like they weren't paying any of it before.

I hate politicians by default.

That's why it baffles me so much that people hate Trump.

He isn't a politician. He's a dreamer and a bit of a prick but he says what he thinks even though he knows how many people will disagree with him.

Since when was honesty such a bad trait?

Bingo!

They don't want to shell out the 25% from their own coffers.

They claim to care so much about people's lives during this Covid 'crisis' yet won't spare a little change for the lepers..

Typical asshole politicians.

He's a right wing white male with an ego that talks alot. He has zero humble.

In order to be a successful white male President post-Obama, one has to be liberal and sympathetic to minorities and women. That's my honest take on it.

Partly right, but even more at play here is they cannot control Trump. Even Bush was controllable by them as he deeply wanted to be at least respected by all... Trump recognizes that there are some "Americans" whose respect is not only not needed, but should not be sought under any circumstances. Commies, socialists, anti-American scumbags, panderers... none worthy sources of respect.

Hahaha hell toupee.....stop it! That made me literally LOL.

I can watch people cry their little eyes out over dumb things Trump says allllllll day long and at the end of the day, when I ask people in hysterics at the man why they hate him the number one response I get is " the sh*t he says" although not one specific instant is ever mentioned warranting the blind hatred.

NONE of them have ANY idea at all why they don’t like him

Not ONE of them

“The he sh!t he says”
“He hates women”
“He’s a dictator”
“Blah blah blah”

EVERY single fake reason they give for hating the President is 100% supplied to their empty minds by the mainstream media. Not a single one has ever given a true, thought out reason why they actually disagree with a single thing he’s ever said or done

It’s hilarious

Gullible.

I know it has more than one syllable, so you'll have to look it up.
