I saw something that in Canada, they are getting $2,000 A MONTH. WTF?????

I mean, I am still gainfully employed but the people that have been forced out of work or lost their business, this is the least that could be done for people who's livelihoods have been destroyed by COVID mandates.

This might mean they're going to be at the table longer.

Could also lead to a government shutdown can it not?

I'm interested in how this plays out.

We're still in 2020, can't take events at face value, we still have time for things to get weird.

I suppose that's because I don't like Trump. That I don't see him as a savior.

why would he be a Savior? What use such language?

The Anti Trump perspective is very much cultish in itself, the desire for one to go out of their way because Orange Man Bad, if anything, his presence literally compels one to act. That's power.

You have me confused with someone else.

I haven't gone out of my way and there's more to it than "orange man bad."

No, I don't Phage.

It is, what it is.

However, back to the relief package, Veto proof they say, not much Trump can do if that's the case.

An appeal to the American people, get them to question the $600.

One of the few times I agree with the President. Do not trust his motives but the bottom line is we need a much larger stimulus to go into people's pockets. I do not think he will come up to much resistance from the Democrats on this one.

It doesn't take Trump to tell people it's nothing. People know how much their bills are.

People can see that for themselves I agree, however to have the president publicly call it out is a big deal. While many will disagree with him on most he does, it's hard to disagree with this stance.

Fish in a barrel, so to speak.

Hell, even AOC agrees with him. Maybe she'll be invited to the White House.

Fair weather fan you are...... but we should demand ALL the money, for the people of this country. WE earned it, WE pay them, WE sacrifice daily! THEY jerk off to kiddie porn and spend 1000$ a week on ice cream (Pelosi I’m looking at you)

We need a “great reset” and it doesn’t involve everyday people

if no opportunistic egocentric powermonger sees the obvious power vacuum forming here and take advantage of it I would be frankly very surprised.

does anyone realize how close we are to a new kind of populism, maybe one based on class? i might be able to get on board with that kind of *ahem* political reorientation. maybe take some notes of how the french approached things.

We both know how pork works.
We both know it stinks.
We both know politicians want to take goodies home to their districts, so in return for their vote.....


And most years we say to hell with it it's what politicians do, but this year with their policies, paranoia, and pussification has ruined thousands and thousands of small businesses. We need to fund the Kennedy Center and the Smithsonian for a year when they won't be open till July if ever in 2021. FTS LOL mothball that # and go on a skeleton crew and give some funds to those small businesses, hell I don't care how they determine it.

Illegal aliens are getting the "backdating" deal you refer to. They didn't get the $1,200 stimulus in April. So now they get this $600, plus the $1,200 as a reparation payment.

Ohhhh the one in a lifetime thread that we can get behind Trump. Well not really he has done a few other things that I agree with BUT this... I like this!!!

BTW and running the risk of getting flame out of existence... this is why I never understood why Trump felt like he had to pivot so damn right on many issues. His base will love him no matter what, throw some bones to the center-left every once in a while and he would had been re-elected no matter what kraken conspiracies you could had come up with.

No, it doesn't.

But he was the one speaking up for the American people, again.

You can't acknowledge that?

I agree it does suck when Trump is showing up Chairman Jao...



ETA: Good on SG for giving Trump credit. Surprised the #e outta me.

Can you get past that for a minute and acknowledge that this one thing... one issue... could unite the majority of the American people... left or right under a common cause. Like we haven’t had a moment line this in a while.
