do you make $150,000 or more? No? then you will get a full stimulus.

The real issue is government debt and how far it can realistiucally increase.

Well, if Biden & the Dems can undo all of the criminally egregious tax break the Trump administration hung on our backs, it'll go a long ways towards pushing that issue onto a back burner. Those in that bracket should pay even more than they were before the tax cut.

Today I saw that Biden wants to end the 40 Billions subsidy to the Oil Industry. Hoooray! About time.

For example over the last 5 months slightly more than 10,000 "unaccompanied minors" (and anyone 17 or younger is classed that way) that BP has apprehended. That's an average of 2000 a day.

WHOOPSIE, 2000 per month you meant.

Re: The Coming Republican Apocolypse
Phat asks:
How is it that Republicans are a minority and yet have that much political influence?? First of all they are not as appealing as they used to be. Second they will never let go of Trump.

Wht cant the Democrats find a candidate that conservatives could grow to like?

Republicans use voter suppression, like axing names from voter lists, reducing places where people of color can vote, which makes for very long lines and - of course - the Electoral College, a fossil from the landowner phase of this country that rewards large, nearly empty rural states. Along with other vile things.

Democrats want to CHANGE this and conservatives, who are against changes, like things just the way they are/were in the 1950's. Big Oil, Big Pharma, Big Insurance - all HUGE contributors to the Reptiles - have stacked congress against change and have even written legislation to keep it funneling money from everyone to the top 1%, damn whoever dies as a result. Some Democrats also take their money, but not every single one of them, unlike the Reptile party.

The Reptile Party has NEVER been appealing to me. I think I voted once for a Reptile, Francis Sargent over Mike Dukakis for Governor and lost.

Re: Hey Zongsmith! Can you tell me how much "Big Pharma" costs us?

BTW, if you can't even spell "xongsmith" or "endorsed by" please take some time to edit things. hope this helps.

Re: Hey Zongsmith! Can you tell me how much "Big Pharma" costs us?
LNA argues:
Ending all profits on prescription drugs will make little to no difference in overall healthcare costs.

change that to

Ending all EXCESSIVE profits on prescription drugs will make little to no difference in overall healthcare costs.

That may be, but the journey to the End Days of the "Whatever the Market Will Bear" criminal concept has to begin *somewhere*.

Whether it's Insulin, or Epipens, or you name it, it must end as a moral rubric, because it is immoral, and a form of Extortion.

And remember - insurance companies are always looking for a way to DENY coverage. They are NOT on our side.
Overall healthcare costs here in the USA are flat-out CRIMINAL!

Re: and the US still has the worst health care in almost all the developed world.
Indeed, the USA is no longer a developed country.

Minimal requirement of being developed: Health Care for ALL
