The sooner people face reality the better.
Better to tear the bandaid off now and get it over with. As long as they get an extra six hundred a week there is no incentive to go back to work. When people realize the $600 is gone they will find work. As long as it is continued they will be happy to stay at home.
The Stupid party is never fails to disappoint. Keep the $600 coming and sunset it for the day after election day. If Trump wins, adjust it as needed. If Biden wins, watch it bump up to $1200 a week.
Well here’s some good news: I grew up in New York city, I have a lot of black friends who still live there and they LOVE Trump. “Obama and Biden never gave me sh**, Trump giving me $1000 a week!” I’m hearing that a lot, so although it’s messing up the economy by people not wanting to work, in the long run it may be worth it if it prevents the domestic enemies and their puppet candidate from taking power. If they take power, we won’t have an economy at all.
I dunno, I think Trump laid out a good outline strategy the other day when speaking to reporters on the way to Texas.
The House thinks if they hold out they can force the Senate to come closer to their side.
But Trump put it pretty plain: 1) Extend the benefits, 2) prevent evictions and 3) liability protections.
If the Senate passes a simple bill like that and sends it to the House I don’t see how the House can reject it. Because the political reality is every GOP candidate will go home for recess campaigning telling the voters that they offered relief for renters and the unemployed and the Democrats rejected it. “The reason you got nothing is because the Democrats refused to give you something”.
I know a guy who has been improperly getting $600 a week.
He’s also been confident it will be extended.
Without reading let me guess.....Murkowski and Collins?
They will need to do this every 3 months especially with Christmas coming up...
Nooooooooooo. So much cheating going on. Everyone I know who is receiving this money is not eligible. No one is checking for fraud.
Someone please tell Mitt the Twit he is just about desirable as a fart in a space suit.
Those infiltrators in the Republican Party are trying to help the Democrats starve the populace and blame it on President Trump. Then if they win the election, they’ll hurriedly pass laws to outlaw firearms and start the confiscation raids. After that, they’ll outlaw other freedoms to enslave everyone for their global bosses.
Utah ever have earthquakes?
Asking for a friend
They get more than those who are working and paying taxes.
They comes a time when you’ve gotten enough money -B.Obama
Why did they have to mention Mitt Romney? Couldn’t they have said “Susan Collins and other GOP Senators...”?
Meanwhile the senate pieces of *hit are working in the background trying to import Indians while millions of Americans are about to go homeless. Grrr, spit. https://www.breitbart.com/economy/2020/07/31/gop-senators-dhs-back-mike-lees-outsourcing-bill/
Since senior citizens are most affected by Covid-19, why aren’t they the ones receiving that extra $2500 per month?
I'd prefer 60% wage replacement or $300/August, 0% September forward. That gives everyone a full month to get a job.
On Reno & San Francisco TV stations a couple of days ago:
Hispanic (?) mom of 3—oldest 21— laid off from hotel housekeeping job due to virus.
Now iving with sister...all 4 in one bedroom...no rent...probably no utilities......
She gets $400 a week as her unemployment, which may represent 2/3 of her regular paycheck.
Add the #600 more bonus on top of that.
She was loudly complaining that the 4 of them COULD NOT LIVE ON ANYTHING LESS than that $1000 a WEEK....and she has very limited overhead.
I live near people who are on Soc Security & get less than $800 a MONTH.
She needs a complete revamp of her budget. She is spending FAR too much $$$ somewhere.
