[[So people who have been ousted from their jobs by govt shut-down orders, wont be getting any relief money?
Wow, ten million Biden voters have just been created.]]
That seems to be the jist of it- We the people can pay through the nose in taxes all our lives, to support the government, but when times are tough, and government orders the country to shut down, they can’t give us back OUR money to help us through the tough times? Why i it that only working class people outside of government have to suffer? Why can’t the government buckle down and cut spending in order to help the people they have forced into unemployment?
Why can’t the people get some of their own money back during a financial crisis that the government has imposed on them?
“Why cant the people get some of their own money back during a financial crisis that the government has imposed on them?”
Because all the money that all the people, rich as well as poor, have given to the government has long since already been spent. What you are asking for is not “your own money” but borrowed money to be put on a credit card for somebody else to repay someday. The idea that government should “help out” in times of emergency is compassionate and workable, but only so long as “emergencies” are rare events. We seem to have emergencies more or less continuously these days, and that makes responding to every emergency ultimately unaffordable.
