New stimulus bill. WTF?

Post by Alfred_E._Neuman »

Jimmy Dore's been trending lately since he's pushing AOC and her cohort to force a M4A vote or they won't vote for Pelosi as Speaker again. So he's in the middle of a dust-up with a bunch of Neoliberals, including AOC and Cenk Uygur of TYT.
Like his politics or not, Jimmy's been on the front lines for actual progressive politics and has been calling bullshit on the Dems for years. He was on the vanguard of the calling the Russiagate BS the nothingburger it was.

Now he's rightfully calling bullshit on this latest stimulus bill that helps everyone but those that need it.

I love that Trump is out lefting Turtle neck, and in the process hamstringing those shit bags Loeffler and Perdue from my 'hood.

The new bill is a slap in the face to regular Americans. A paltry $600 for you while billions in pork is siphoned off for fucking women's studies in Pakistan, I shit you not.

Absolute. Total. Horse shit.

I'm seriously wondering when the people that have been hurt the most by this pandemic are going to get serious about burning Washington to the ground. If Turtle Neck, Pelosi, Schumer, et all's heads ended up on stakes outside the Capital, I'd have a hard time finding fault.

Doesn’t it also include monthly unemployment provisions?

Otherwise, $600 is a joke.
Don’t believe everything you think.

Doesn't really include anything other than a cash grab for the donor class. And enough $ to average Americans to buy shit groceries for a couple weeks for a family.

"The nearly $1 trillion Covid-19 relief bill will include a second stimulus check of up to $600 for many Americans, an extra $300 in enhanced unemployment insurance for 11 weeks, the continuation of key jobless programs and funding for food and rental assistance, among other provisions"

It's an abortion.

If Donald had been serious about being elected he should have ran his whole campaign on 5000 dollar stimulus for every American, nothing for anyone else. Or 10,000. Or 2000 a month. Whatever.

That's it. That's the whole campaign. A big middle finger to Republicans and Democrats.

Landslide victory and he turns a few states.

This guy fucking NAILED it on Pelosi's bullshit. See 4:14 in the video where he predicts the future with 100% accuracy. Anyone who thinks our government isn't Pro Wrestling for the masses is delusional.



And here's a Republican Congressman walking straight through the door Pelosi left open for him:
