Someone on Friday told me that the US government was sending out cheques every month to everyone.

It was all I could not to laugh at them. So I just told them not to be farking stupid

Trump has communist tendencies!? HERESY!! But....he's also the God-Emperor.... Turtle's F-d which ever way he scuttles.

Maybe it will be all the returned checks they sent to dead people?

It is blatant pandering but nonetheless additional financial support is critical.  Why not make it clear that they will get these cheques for at least the next 4 months.

Trump is raising our monthly allowance from 200 lei to 220 lei. We should praise him.

Because, silly, that would be SOCIALISM. And, as we all know, SOCIALISM is HERESY. Those good Americans who get checks? They're never gonna work, ever again.

As recent news has demonstrated, this pandemic is not done. Things are getting worse every day in a majority of states, and a large part of that is because the country was opened back up too fast and too soon. We need to go back into lockdown, and that means everybody stays home and isolates. And that means keeping the economy going through direct government stimulus is our only move.

Extending all the provisions of the CARES act would be an absolute necessity. That means the enhanced unemployment, the blocking of evictions and foreclosures, all of it.

A second $1200 check for everybody would be a help, too - but, this time it needs provisions that prevent greedy rent-seekers and banksters from swooping in and stealing it from people before they can even cash it.

We are in the second great depression. It's happening right now.

If mcconnel won't get out of the way of recovery, then he needs to be run the f*ck over.

I don't think Moscow Mitch understands how the Republican Party works now.

The entire purpose of the US government is to make Trump look as good as possible.

Trump says things.  Then everyone else is responsible for making whatever he said true.

Anyone who isn't completely devoted to that goal is a national security threat.

Trump's stimulus check is coming, fark all the rest of you.

There will be a stimulus check- it will appear at the end of October in an envelope reading "TRUMP STIMULUS MONEY"with a letter stating it would have been twice the size if the Democrats hadn't prevented him from sending more money to everyone.

/And there will be another trillion dollars or so to bailout critical, hard hit industries like hotels and high-rise apartments.

I guess taxing Americans to pay farmers to let their crops rot in the field is capitalism but providing disaster aid is socialism.

I'd have to get a first one first.

There's no second one coming, that's the whole point of reopening everything despite things being worse than ever.

Haven't received the first stimulus yet. Gov't told us to be patient. Meanwhile ....

Trump wants to buy your vote. He made sure a letter got sent out to everyone with his signature making it look like he personally was responsible for the last stimulus check

Trump isn't smart enough to have Congress push through more stimulus checks or reinforced UI payments.

Lol, it's a bad week for Moscow Mitch.

"Wear a mask, I'm old and frail, protect me" - Moscow Mitch
"Hurf Durf, Masks are panties, Don't tell me my face is a ... whatever" - Donald J Trump

"I've decided, since you all hate me, that it's time to bribe you with stimulus money. How much are your votes worth?" - Donald J Trump
"holy fark, THIS IS THE ONE THING I CANNOT ALLOW!!" - Moscow Mitch

Why? There's already "unemployment on steroids" and the US never really shut down in the first place. It seems to me like the US government chose the economy over the lives of its people. The die is cast.

Last stimulus went almost entirely too charity. Next one might have a chunk go to Biden's campaign. Lord knows it's silly to send it to me when my income didn't change and my expenses went down.

Actually, what's silly is that it wasn't just sent to every adult indiscriminately in the form of direct cash payments regardless of employment status or income.

There was really no point in bickering over whether some people made too much or if it should go to people who aren't working. If the point of it was stimulus and it was going to be a low fixed maximum, the little bit "saved" by pissing around and arguing those details was entirely inconsequential considering how wealthy the overall country is. Like, "drug test unemployment recipient" levels of wasted time and resources.

I wish they'd quit farking around and just make an actual real announcement. Before, it was very helpful money, but not needed. Now? After I got laid off, I took the first job that was offered me, for something like an $850/month pay cut. I'm still searching, but a stimulus would keep us afloat without going into past due/overdraft situations until I get a job with actual real pay.

Even without the pay cut, this goddamn job isn't a keeper. This shiat is boring as hell. But on the plus side, I seem to have discovered a physical location on the planet where time moves backwards. It would be neat in its own way if I could truly enjoy it. Instead, by 11 am on Monday, you're sure it's just GOT to be end of the day on Friday.

Depends.

Is it successful, productive Blue states paying for welfa(R)e states?  "Capitalism!" "America!"

Is it < just about anything else that might support actual people in need and not the wealthy and/or corporations >?  "Welfare queen!" "Soshulizm!"

Another "Please vote for me" bribe? Looks like Joe Biden is getting another campaign contribution from me.
