I cannot begin to put into words how disappointed I am in our country, our government, and really, ourselves for letting this happen.
$900 billion is the latest stimulus/covid-relief bill.
$600 will be given to most Americans.
That’ll cost $200 billion, meaning the other $700 billion will be spent on pork.
The bill was over 5,000 pages long and many members of Congress are complaining that they didn’t have time to read what’s in it.
The bill was so large that it couldn’t be carried; a handcart was required.
Tulsi Gabbard of Hawaii made a great point. In her state, the $600 that people will get will only cover 25% of their rent.
So really...what good is it?
It’s a joke, and everyone knows it. When that $600 runs out...then what? Another stimulus bill? This latest one took 6 months, and it’s shit. It hurts our country more than it helps.
That $600 ain’t gonna last a week, everyone knows it.
What a joke.
So much money is going overseas. Pakistan gets $10 million for gender studies.
How does that help America? Who does it help? Who’s idea was it to put that in the bill, and why? How do they benefit?
Because I’m pretty certain that sending Pakistan $10 million isn’t related to covid at all, and I’m confident it won’t help a single struggling American.
God this makes me sick.
Our country is ruined. The US dollar is now worthless. Food prices are skyrocketing as inflation takes hold.
I cannot begin to tell you how disappointed I am.
I made $31,000 last year, and this year so far I've made $30,800...60% of which is unemployment.
How long can this continue?
I don't want the $600. I have a family of four, so we'll get $2,400.
I don't want it.
I want us to open back up and get back to normal, get this country back on track. But maybe it's too late.
I refuse to believe that.
I want to fight. I want to fight for this country and the future of my children.
It just doesn't seem like anyone else wants to.
