I'm not too keen on these stimulus plans. During a normal year folks would find a way to make it on unemployment, they've done it before.
I did accept the first one, but if we have another and Trump doesn't make it, the Dems will squawk look at the deficit, we need to raise taxes and blame Trump/Republicans even tho they signed off on it too.
I really wish I could be glad to get free money, but I feel for my daughter and those around her age(24) that will have to pay the majority of it through taxes.
I'll gladly pay you Tuesday, for a hamburger today.
I guess I'm just dumb or something.
How is this ever going to be repaid???
We got 330 million folks in this place . . . and I read not long ago that only about half have jobs. That's 165 million.
If 165 million folks paid 25K$ a year income taxes on the average . . . that's only 4T$ . . . and in 2019 we spent that and then some.
So how do we retire this 35T$ debt we now have???

If you get that $600 I recommend ammo, silver, canned goods, etc...
