A while back Congress passed a bill subsequently signed into law that granted a $600 a week uplift to unemployed workers across the nation, to their weekly unemployment benefits.
As of 31 July a lot of people were still feeding their families and paying the rent
As of that date the republicans declared that to be an unacceptable situation.
Remember this: the republicans have only one goal in mind.
They want serfs, lots of serfs.
You can’t have serfs if your population can pay the bills.
So it should be no surprise that Ol’ Mitch and the Boys don’t want to extend that $600 lifeboat to millions and millions of Americans.
So the Senate being what it isn’t, nobody rational would expect that those millions and millions will be succored anytime soon.
But we’ve got donnie: he’s gonna excercise his heretofore never seen magical powers and declare a “payroll tax cut”.
So if you are EMPLOYED making fifteen dollars an hour for forty hours a week you will get $87.30 a month extra.
If you are one of the millions and millions of UNEMPLOYED losing $600 A WEEK you get to take your family onto the street.
If this makes any sense to you, you probably have chosen the best career path: serfdom.
