(1.) “I read those two pages. Now what?”----
I asked that people read what bills, laws ect are being put forth that our tax dollars contribute to. Maybe I’m one of the few people who read them. I just hate media. So jaded. I feel all politicians are so dispicable.
(2.) I would have preferred a non inflammatory source for the McCarthy video. The fact is the video is from C span.
The profanity at the end of your post was rude and unnecessary.
It was nicknamed ‘Nancy’s Subway’ because it was in her district. It was already funded for 100 million dollars.
I just now read it was stricken from the bill.
The original article I referenced had not been updated.
“The reason it was removed is because Democrats are using a procedure called budget reconciliation to advance the stimulus without the usual 60-vote threshold in the Senate required to move legislation forward. In general, only measures that affect the federal deficit are allowed in such bills. Senate Parliamentarian Elizabeth MacDonough ruled Tuesday that because the extension is the only recipient of a pilot grant program, it did not qualify.”
(3.) “And what is the debate?”—
It is my commentary on the topic of the 1.9 trillion dollar Covid relief bill posted on Straight Dope. Is there a debate? Hmmm.. I don't recall you calling for a debate.
(4.) “Title IV, Section 4001 of the bill (page 74 in the PDF).”
Thank you, I appreciate you the taking time and delving into the bill and providing me and the other readers the information.
Kerri Doe- Fictional person
However, its a shame that people like Kerri Doe and her family cannot recieve the same GENEROUS BENIFITS as the federal employees.
Is Kerri Doe and her family not as deserving as a federal employee?
The money going to people will pretty much get spent at a high rate. This will help the economy. Money used to buy goods almost always has a cascading effect to help the economy.
The money used to keep small businesses going will keep people employed and be spent in ways that will help the economy.
Some of the money will somehow be sucked away by parasitic corporations and dispersed as dividends or worse yet bonuses. That is largely a waste. But some will go into help large corps will new tech. That has a good chance of paying long term dividends for the economy.
As I previously stated I haven’t finished reading the bill and when I do I’ll update. Or if the Medicare and SS cuts are as big as mentioned by McCarthy it will be on the the news that lies and only has opinions and talking points that are not true facts.
