Quote

The White House and Senate leaders struck a major deal early Wednesday morning over a $2-trillion package to provide a jolt to an economy struggling amid the coronavirus pandemic, capping days of marathon negotiations that produced one of the most expensive and far-reaching measures in the history of Congress.

 

"Ladies and gentleman, we are done," White House legislative affairs director Eric Ueland said right before 1 a.m. after leaving Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell's office following negotiations that have gone around the clock since last Friday. "We have a deal."

 

McConnell formally announced the agreement on the Senate floor, saying, "At last, we have a deal. After days of intense discussions, the Senate has reached a bipartisan agreement on a historic relief package for this pandemic."

So pretty much as soon as the final details/negotiations are ironed out, the Senate votes and passes the bill.

 

The House is waiting until Friday to vote on it.

 

WTF?

Yeah, idk what that delay is all about. To give some scattered dissenters time to throw another wrench in the works?

If not that, most likely something else politically motivated.

 

Call me an eternal optimist, but perhaps the House is waiting 2 days because they want to see how much better/worse the coronavirus numbers get before they approve a shit ton of money for something that might not do jack squat if the numbers double.

What's the alternative? Approve an even shittier ton of money if they do double?

No.  Approve nothing for now.  Ride out the storm in quarantine and then approve something that is well thought out and makes sense based upon what happens (or doesn't happen).

 

It's crazy to me they are going to pass a $2 TRILLION dollar piece of legislation that was thrown together in a few days time.  It will be the largest thing in history and it has been rushed through out of panic and for public perception.

 

I agree with what you're saying in general, but the population needs something  right. now. Instead of maybe 1200 right now maybe do 600 in April, 600 in May.

 

There's supposed to be roughly 327M people in the US. If 80% of those people made a small enough amount of money to qualify for a stimulus check that's roughly 260M people getting a check. That's $312B. If they cut the amount in half to 600 per person that's 156B.

 

That's still a metric shit ton of money, but would that ease some of the burden?

That would make a lot of sense IMO.  It would also seem a lot more genuine and easier to draft into legislation as it would be relatively non-complicated.

That's the problem with politicians. They complicate the unholy hell out of everything.

 

I've always thought the idiom "less is more" applied to more than just artistic expressions.

There are stocks right now that pay a distribution yield of 30%. Cornerstone total return CRF is a closed end mutual fund that has already announced a distribution of .179(18 cents a share for this month on the 31st and next month 4/30). I just took $1400 from our savings and bought 200 shares at $7. The income from that would be $35.80 a month. I'll be reinvesting that into more shares. 

 

I'll do the same with my $1200. My plan is to sell in about 18 months. After 18 distributions like that my profit will be $644 even if the stock price remains the same. Most likely it will be double. 

 

Just some ideas for those who do not need that money to pay bills.

Nice try Bernie. Bernie Sanders wants people to make much more from unemployment than working. If we can keep Americans from wanting to work until November we can blame Trump for the high unemployment level.

No shit. That is their strategy. Pay people $23 an hour not to work so they can be counted as unemployed by the election. 

 

Just when you think the tards have completely shown their asses in this crisis they find a way to show more.

@Rolltide have you ever been laid off?

 

Yes, what does that have to do with it? I did not expect to make more money on unemployment then when I was working. 

 

Your self righteous libtard attitudes will not work here. I come from union factory workers.
