Not exactly a surprise.

Anytime we embrace Reaganomics full on (Reagan, Bush I, Bush II, Trump) the economy drops out and the lower classes get screwed.

Anyone who understands basic economics knows. Were headed for very bad times indeed. The debt was untenable 2 decades ago. The spending further out than that.

We, the people have been sold out and leveraged.

Its multi generational now

I said this back in March when they started the 14 day lock downs. My boss thought I was crazy when I laid out what was going to happen. Now she thinks I have an insider slipping me info.

Not crazy, no insider. Commonsense, and looking in the directions they are trying to keep us from seeing.

Considering we allowed 100 million for the USDA (I think it was) for the purposing of making sure they are spending the money they get correctly.

At that point whats 2k a person.. still chump change in my eyes.

Better than 600 sure but still an insult.

I know you didn't ask me, but if I had a say, I would scrap the entire bill, and make them come up with a bill that would deal with the COVID impact on America and Americans.

A straight bill, with no pork.

900 billion dollars for the stability of America and Americans. When we are back on our feet we will look to far away lands, and will continue being the generous people we have always been.

Right now, charity has to start at home. Putting on bandaids, while they strip the coffers dry, is not a solution to our problems. It is luring us in while they lock the doors and set the building on fire.

I was hoping Trump would have went nuclear on this... I mean he doesn't really have anything to lose at this point.

I mean hold a press conference and point blank say "I ain't signing this sh*t..."

"We are doing $10,000 per family at $1.2 trillion. Everything else can wait. I don't give a fudge about any country or anyone else other than the American people.

If McConnell, Pelosi, or anyone of any of these other political hacks have a problem, they can man up and come see me right now in front of the cameras and tell the American people directly what issue they have with my proposal..."

That would take a president with an actual backbone.

Heh, been having the same experiences.

When folks flock to the crazy conspiracy theorists for information, we are in trouble.

That’s the problem. Like you said it’s common sense. Too many people lack it these days. You’d have to blind as all hell not to have seen what is coming. People keep thinking they can just not go back to work and everything will be fine. At some point it’s going to stop. Like musical chairs and it’s going to depend on where you are currently at whether it’s going to be hell on earth or mildly discomforting. We can’t keep on like we have been forever. Those that refuse to see are what helped us get here. So here we sit... not a sixth sense at all. Just standard grade school common sense.

Just another one that DOES NOT know history .
History is the key.
Learn some.

Denying ignorance.
Why ?
Folks refuse to learn history , and go by what their neighbor tells them.

Back when the first amount was sent out I was pissed, they could have left out the pork and red tape and instead cut a big check for each adult in the country and it would have done so much more.

I believe the 600 to 2000 handout is a distraction from what is really passing in the almost 6000 page bill. In other words the 600 dollars arguing for 2000, is what they want us to be upset about, not the new laws and foreign aid, if you can even call it that. I wanna know how Pakistan, persuaded our government for millions of dollars for sex change therapy. I really wanna see that public record.

Exactly they shorted that part so people would only look at that part! Works too.

Doesn't matter, it'll never be paid back anyway.

There's no economy to support an increase in taxes, so where's that money going to come from? 🤷🏾‍♂️

(Thing is, a tax increase is coming anyway. There's no choice aside from resetting the entire global monetary system. Is that even conceivable??)

Good luck with that I say. No one is going to be able to pay it and if you think people are going to be locked up en masse, you obviously haven't been paying attention.

Like everyone is going to line up to go to court for their "spanking" after they've lost everything.🙄 Puuuuhleeeeease...

Honestly I don't know who's more deluded, the government or the citizenry.

Anyone who feels personally or generationally responsible for this debt, I wouldn't worry about it. It's all smoke and mirrors.

Democrats engineered a pandemic that created economic turmoil in the entire world? That's silly.

Also, the deficit was rising each year before the pandemic. Without the pandemic Trump would have been close if not exceeded Obama's average.

Sure, some democratic Governors, like in California, have put in place bad policies that negatively affected their economy. But my point is that Trump was anything but conservative when it came to spending and the deficit.

Suddenly concerned with spending after what we already spent on covid.

It straight up,grade A bullsnip.

They got what they wanted. Your vote, and they won't give one rats arse about you or me until the next vote.

Let me guess, College Graduate?

What about Clinton taking all of the money out of dedicated accounts, putting it into the General Fund and declaring a surplus? Then spending the surplus knowing that he wouldn't be in office when the other accounts came due.

Since tens of millions of US citizens are unemployed exclusively caused by policies implemented by the Federal Government shouldn't the US Government do everything they can to right their wrong?

Instead the Congress decides to pass a bill labelled as COVID Relief, which is 70% loaded with spending completely unrelated to COVID Relief.

Have they gone insane with a don't care attitude toward the people that elected them? Its disgusting, its retarded.

McConnell's basic reasoning behind not allowing the Cash Act to be voted on was because he felt it was socialism for the rich. It was his personal decision not the majority of Congress. McConnell is a beyond elderly, senile SoB not connected with reality he shouldn't have been reelected.

The government feels the economy will magically come back but don't realize it will take years. Making money available through the Federal reserve so companies can buy back thier stocks to inflate the stock market only makes share holder richer especially company executives. What will people do in that time.

Citizens need the money, really.

I have read that many unemployed trying to get PUA benefits have been waiting months and not been paid. Where is that money going?
