Fascist Nazis.
There
I said it.
5 yard penalty and loss of down.
 
2020-03-24 5:05:32 PM  
Yeah, it's not going to pass without it. You can bank on it.
 
2020-03-24 5:15:33 PM  
Good.  I'd rather they burn it all down than allow the GOP to shiat down the throats of Americans again and again while simultaneously stealing our tax dollars to line their own pockets.

Trumper (former?) Coworker freaking out yesterday about the Democrats...

Last week it was "we gotta all work together!"

he's of the demographic that will die if he gets Covid.

Let me just point out how f*cked we are that we live in a country that uses an actual pandemic as an opportunity to try to keep feeding the poor to the rich.
 
2020-03-24 7:01:17 PM  
Burn it.

Or we strike.

Fark off with this BS, Dems. Let's do it.

Did you tell him that he shouldn't have voted for this if it's not what he wanted?

I heard it was because Democrats snuck in a Green New Deal, Open Borders, and free ice cream for illegal aliens.

With sprinkles.

Airlines, hotels, theme parks, Hollywood films, music concerts all rely on a healthy population to make money.

Perhaps they ought to invest in or pay a tax for supporting human health?

And the cult still blames the democrats for being obstructionists.
 
2020-03-24 7:03:26 PM  
Yeah but it's the Democrats fault for not passing the bill that gives the GOP everything they want, whilst going against the Democrats core values!

Greedy Old Pigs.

How do you now feel about electing these old, suited scum, you bumpkins, rednecks and racists?
 
2020-03-24 7:03:41 PM  
Republicans politically need this much more than democrats do because they're holding the bag with an anchor around their necks. fark them

Well, originally it was to prevent Planned Parenthood from getting any loan money.  Trust but verify.

I really don't understand what's happening right now. Just increase the max UI benefit by 50% and make it a dollar for dollar income replacement up to that limit. According to my (shiatty, admittedly) math, at 50% unemployment that's like $1T for 6 months. Should be plenty. Why give me andy wife $1000 each when we're both still working? Makes zero sense.

Like.... do any of you truly grasp how legitimately reprehensible and damning that is?

A pandemic is streaking across the globe, killing people, and our governing bodies' first thoughts aren't "oh god, let's save people."

Their first thoughts are "Heeeyyyy, let's see how we can use this to...."

Please think about that and really stew over that. And get mad. Because I'm mad.

Right wingers can't stop the grift for 5 farking minutes. fark right wingers. They shiat on America's face and tell us it's raining. While they're all running around calling it a hoax spreading disease.

Amusing snark aside, I've heard caterwauling about similar shiat.  Is there /any/ truth to it?

Or is it the same bullshiat?

That just means we need 500x the assistance to go to cutting corporate tax rates. They're people, too!
 
2020-03-24 7:05:22 PM  
F*ck this county.
And f*ck the GOP in general.
 
2020-03-24 7:06:28 PM  
We don't need it anymore.

The President says this whole thing will be over by Easter.

No need to save the economy. It'll be fine!

I mean if they really want to play chicken, this thing is bound to kill republican voters faster than democrat voters, on average.

Soooo...

Why would snap need increased if the bill will pay people laid off 100% of your old wages for 4 months?
 
2020-03-24 7:06:57 PM  
Why don't those people just go back to work? Or get a better job? Or glad back to schopl?

Scumer was on the floor today stating they were going to do that for 4 months

Saiga410: Why would snap need increased if the bill will pay people laid off 100% of your old wages for 4 months?


Because a lot of people are going to be unemployed more than 4 months.

Why do we need to CUT snap?

That should be Trump's new slogan for the crisis: We want everyone to Glad Back to Schopl!

It'll be tremendous
 
2020-03-24 7:11:56 PM  
Let's say the bill doesn't ever pass and the high unemployment results in general chaos, food riots, a general strike, and the poor ultimately eating the rich to stay alive, resulting in a government more suited to the needs of the people.

I'm OK with this.

The answer to this question requires you to know what SNAP is and who qualifies for it.  Stop being ignorant and look it up my friend.

The only thing I want to add to this is that it's not "the country" or "Congress." This is very specifically the Republican party.

Which is now, more even than before, the greatest threat this nation has ever faced.

The stimulus was never gonna pass anyways. I wouldn't be surprised at all of the Republican plan was to keep poisoning it until the COVID restrictions got lifted. No restrictions? No stimulus needed but we tried. Now go be boot-stewpot. Probably part of the reason Dear Leader's pushing the Easter deadline; getting harder to come up with shiatty language to add to the bill.

""We've had some conversations about SNAP over the past couple of days .... we continue to work to see if we can find a solution on that issue that reflects the priorities of Republicans and the interest of Democrats, but it's not quite there yet," he said"

You see, kids, Republicans have legislative priorities, whereas those do-nothing Democrats merely have legislative interests.And everyone knows that priorities are more important than interests.

Honestly, that's more subtlety than I usually give the White House credit for.

Serious question here: I would assume essential personnel/healthcare workers won't strike (that would be very bad), leaving non-essential workers to do so. Liberals are clustered in cities, where...non-essential workers have been ordered not to work.

How can you strike when everything is already shut down?

Cant do that or they couldnt hide the fact that businesses will get more money than people
