many americans are not having the merriest of christmas in 2020 right now.
some are unemployed and facing homelessness.
if you have a job right now…
so the good news is the dems and repubs agreed to a massive rona relief bill.
bad news is they sent it to trump to sign it and he goes…
President Donald Trump on Tuesday said he is asking for changes to the coronavirus relief bill passed by Congress, leaving the future of the $900 billion stimulus in doubt.
“I’m asking Congress to amend this bill and increase the ridiculously low $600 to $2000 or $4000 per couple,” Trump said in a video released on Twitter. “I’m also asking Congress to immediately get rid of the wasteful and unnecessary items in this legislation or to send me a suitable bill.“
The extraordinary message came after he largely left negotiations over the measure to lawmakers and his Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin. Trump did not explicitly threaten to veto the bill, but said he was dissatisfied with its final state.
The President’s position could threaten to torpedo the carefully drafted bill, which his own administration helped negotiate — a move that could lead to a government shutdown and send the economy into a tailspin if he carried through with a veto.
i simply can’t.
2k is a good amount tho.
4k means everyone at the dior store.
many folks need more than a 600 stimmy.
beggars can’t be choosers but sheesh.
i don’t know if trump is being the villain with this move.
the issue is if he stalls on this and they go on vacation until next year,
this is gonna be a whole shit show.
