WOT's Up Doc?
Show me zee papers old man.
Its absolutely true. I'm sure Mitch has done the same, but not getting as much news. I'm sure there are lots of people lining their pockets out of this while the rest of us hope for a check for a grand.Any truth to the grumblings that Pelosi and Co. have jam-packed a relief package bill with more pork than a hog farm?
Two things jump out to me. One, both sides suhuhuhuhuhuhuck at life. Neither has any interest in mind beyond their own. But two, one side clearly has a stranglehold on the PR machine, yet is receiving the bulk of the criticism in spite of said stranglehold.In the end, it looks like the Repubs offered up a bill knowing full well the Dems wouldn't go for some of the provisions in it and the Dems fired back by adding stupid shit that has no right being within a mile of this particular bill. Both sides' "justification" for the pork they've added are total BS. I recall that they all met beforehand to work out a set of mutually acceptable items to be included and while that was a good effort, both sides seem to have again embraced their partisan BS in the end. Most bad press has been aimed at the Dems, but if you really look at it, both sides are failing us pretty strongly.
I'm getting pretty fed up with hearing about how people with higher-than-average income need to be taxed more. I'm writing a check to Uncle Sam this week myself - and for quite a bit more than that 'relief check' is going to be.
FTFYIDGAF about the $637 'relief check'. They can keep that - or better yet, give it to someone who needs it. What I want is a return to normalcy as the LACK OF A COHESIVE response in this case is far, far more dangerous than the disease itself.
Is the emphasis on the word 'cohesive' here? Because there's been a metric SHIT-TON of privacy- and rights-shredding response to the panic.FTFY
At least that's my view of this. The federal government has botched this at almost every level and every angle, especially the communication and consistent message angle. Some the state and local governments around the country appear to be doing a much better job. But then, their jobs are focused on a much smaller thing than the entire country.
Obviously sick individuals in Nebraska are still having difficulty getting tested. STILL.
I assume I don't make anywhere near what some of y'all make... and I still don't want that goddamn check.IDGAF about the $637 'relief check'.

The message from the Administration changes daily or depending on whom you are listening to at any given moment. The Congress says they are in line with the Administration but then fail to deliver anything useful (blame whomever you want) so far. The Congress says they have a plan, we worked together to make a plan we can move on quickly and then end up being the same old partisan dumbshits anyway. All while the problem at the core of it all runs merrily along and the infected count grows and grows.Is the emphasis on the word 'cohesive' here?
