The government exists, the government is absolutely massive, the government is handing out money left and right to everyone not just in America, but all over the planet – but the Republicans want to “reduce the size of government,” and they’re going to start by letting you starve to death.
This of course comes after the government that they work for and represent shut down your businesses and destroyed your livelihood.
The House of Representatives on Thursday failed to advance a measure that would increase direct payments to Americans under a certain income level to $2,000 — up from the $600 level passed earlier this week — bringing lawmakers back to square one as they search for a way to appease President Donald Trump’s demands.
House Democrats tried to quickly pass the bill by a unanimous consent request Thursday morning, but Republicans rejected the move, leaving the future of the $900 billion stimulus package — and whether any changes will be added to it — in doubt. That stimulus package was attached to a spending bill for the entire federal government, and a deadline for government funding expires Monday at midnight.
Democrats have seized on Trump’s surprise objections to the bill in a bid to push Republicans to accept a higher amount for the stimulus checks — and Republican lawmakers are now in a difficult spot where they will be forced to decide whether or not they will defy the President.
Democrats vowed their effort isn’t over, promising to move to pass a bill to increase the stimulus checks to $2,000 with a full up-or-down vote on the House floor December 28.
“On Monday, I will bring the House back to session where we will hold a recorded vote on our stand-alone bill to increase economic impact payments to $2,000. To vote against this bill is to deny the financial hardship that families face and to deny them the relief they need,” Pelosi said in a statement.
“Hopefully by then the President will have already signed the bipartisan and bicameral legislation to keep government open and to deliver coronavirus relief,” she said.
So, there you have it: Nancy Pelosi is the good guy, siding with Trump, whilst the Republicans are telling you: “yeah sorry about totally destroying your life, but even though we did that to you, we can’t give you money to help you deal with the problems we caused, because that would be socialism.”
This is like if you run somebody over with your car and they’re on the road bleeding and they ask you to call an ambulance and you say: “Hey buddy, you need to learn to deal with your own problems. It’s not my problem you’re laying in the street, dying.”
It simply cannot be stressed enough: the government caused this problem, directly, by literally forcing people to shut down their businesses. Most of the businesses were destroyed by this shut down. This is not “socialism.” The government made people’s lives their responsibility when they went along with this shutdown. People were doing just fine taking care of themselves before these actions taken by the government.
But this is the way it always works: you have these two sides of the government, which are allegedly in competition with one another. But the Republicans couldn’t stop the Democrats from shutting down businesses and destroying everyone’s life, now the Democrats can’t stop the Republicans from preventing people from getting their money. These people operate as a single government, and the people experience a singular series of events:
- The government shut down their businesses, making it impossible for them to provide for themselves and their families
- The government refused to help them financially after destroying their businesses
The fact that it is being explained away with “well, you see, there are these competing ideologies, and sometimes one of them wins, and sometimes the other one wins” doesn’t change the reality that is experienced.
This is what all partisan politics are, and it is the purpose of all ideologies: it allows the government to constantly do whatever they want, and to blame it on the other side of the government.
Nothing fair is going to come out of this. You are not going to get what you deserve. But it is something where you can really sit back and see the the full view of the way this system works.
Of course, the Democrats and Republicans violate their own stated ideology when it comes to Jews. Jews in Israel are getting huge amounts of money in this spending package – it’s more than just the stated hundreds of millions in arms money. Democrats are supposed to be against Israel, because it is a “white” country which commits human rights violations against brown people. Republicans are supposed to be against foreign aid, period. But somehow, while the government can’t manage to figure out how to get you money, the Jews are getting paid bigly.
This incredible ability of Jews to extract money from Christians is also something that is worthy of note.
This time, they might end up getting you your money. They probably will, if I had to guess.
But you are seeing the plan laid out for the future: as the economy continues to collapse, the government is not going to help you. The government is going to continue to send money to foreign countries, and to multinational corporations. The Republicans will say that they’re against the “big spending,” but then say that the only place they can stop the Democrats from spending bigly is on you.
Rand Paul already said it: he would support moving money that the Democrats are spending on their own projects to the people, but he doesn’t want the spending to get any bigger (because he allegedly thinks that matters at this point, somehow), so he doesn’t support giving people bigger checks.
Meanwhile, the Democrats will then say that they like spending, but the Republicans are stopping them from giving you money, so the only thing they’re able to spend money on is foreign countries and mega-corporations.
The only reason that the Republicans are going to remain in the government at all going forward is to serve as foils. If Joe Biden takes over, Democrats will have full control of the government, and would be able to simply close the Republican Party if they wanted. But they need someone to blame. So Republicans will stick around for a while.
Eventually, the dollar is going to collapse completely, and they will replace it with a cryptocurrency system, which involves giving you a monthly allowance in a system where you are not allowed to own property. It’s just going to be a long and painful road to that point, because they need you to feel grateful for a small room in a highrise condo building and a monthly allowance of credits. In order to be grateful for that, you’re going to have to be really broke first.
