America is supposed to be a first world country. And they tell you constantly that exporting the factories and importing the brown people hasn’t hurt the average American.
But somehow, $1,200 is a huge amount of money to the average American.
This is the equivalent of $172 in 1970s dollars.
Do you think $172 was a life-changing amount of money for boomers in 1970?
No, of course it wasn’t.
This nation is completely broke, and now that the stock market is collapsed, they can’t even lie to you about just how broke we are.
Anyway: give me money.
Negotiations continue in the Senate over a massive stimulus plan to blunt the economic effects of the coronavirus as the spread of the disease worsens and economic losses mount.
Washington, D.C. announced its first death from the disease on Friday, and nationwide, there are more than 260 deaths and over 19,600 confirmed cases.
Republican and Democratic senators reconvene at noon Saturday, extending marathon negotiations from Friday that did not result in a deal. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell had set midnight Friday as the deadline for an agreement.
McConnell’s plan, which was released in full on Thursday, would, among other provisions, send direct payments of $1,200 to individuals and provide assistance to businesses affected by coronavirus.
McConnell, R-Ky., aims to pass the bill by Monday.
The boomers are the entire reason we shut down the nation in the first place. This virus doesn’t kill young people. It doesn’t really even kill very many boomers, we now know, but these people are scared to death of dying, because they want to be hip and cool and ride around on Harley-Davidsons for all of eternity.
Boomers should be made to pay for the economy collapsing.
And it should be a lot more than $1,200.
In fact, it should be a lot more than $120,000.
In fact, they should just have to give us all the money.
Or, the money printers should all be turned on full “brrrrrr,” until everyone is rich and the boomers can no longer lord over us with their stolen loot.
When I get that big money, I’m just going to be doing the same thing, sitting at my computer all day except when I go to the gym, but I’ll REALLY be sitting on my computer HARD.
This is what a white woman who works out looks like:
Along with that $1,200, it’s something you will probably never see.
