  • Why Rs and Ds couldn't agree on stimulus money

    Trump just wanted the money out there, especially before the election, might well of done the trick, he only needed a few thousand here and there. So what was the hold up?

    Corruption of course. Who runs the place? Rich folk, business owners, corporate America.

    Republicans wanted to put in something to protect businesses from getting sued when they put workers or customers in a dangerous situation re covid and people get sick or die. Like packing people close together in factories, meat packing plants, restaurants and bars.

    Democrats wanted money for the states and municipalities. "what" I said to myself, I don't get it. How are states running out of money so badly they need fed funds? Turns out states need money to syphon over to businesses in their states, and cities in their states who can further feed those $$$s to businesses.

    When Trump fed money directly to people in the form of a check for $1200 or increased unemployment for $600 per week, people spent the money, incomes went up, poverty went down. When money went to small businesses in the form of PPP, businesses took the money but a lot less of the money ended up getting spread around. If states and municipals get money do you think they'll spend it wisely? Or maybe feed it to some crony businesses?

    A pox on both their houses.

    States want money because they are broke from promising more hand outs than they can pay for. another reason are the lush retirement pensions they can not afford. Basically it is all because the Dems do not know how to run a City. No way should the taxpayer bail them out - what so they can continue their wasteful ways ?
