Which is absolutely the same way he’s behaved since moments after taking office. The only difference is that this one has some Democrat pieces in place so it won’t go exclusively to the obscenely rich.
Apparently he also wants his signature on the checks. He figures that they are cheap reelection advertising.
Let the gods be thanked we have a leader who knows a thing or six about bankruptcy . . .
Not to worry, Lester.
There’s a Republican* in the White House, so deficits don’t matter.
*Now the Party Of Trump
Well no we (meaning us little guys) don’t but….. the gov’t can just print it…. how about bringing back the idea of the $1 Trillion Obama coin?

I don’t know why you’re complaining now, where were you when the Republican-led everything passed the “Tax Cut and Spend Scam” that cost at least that much a couple of years ago?
This got a chuckle from me AND my lovely but cynical Dutch lady.
No worry, our Clown dark house resident will just order more printed!
80% of the 2 trillion will go to corporations that pay little or no taxes. This is another Wall Street bailout.
So, Lester, what is your solution?
By the time those checks are delivered, they may only be worth 10% of their value.
We don’t have the total debt of 24.2 Trillion, either. The GOP has a plan though. If Biden wins in November they will put all the blame on Joe and try to impeach him! Neat, huh?
I just read that Americans have $7 trillion in offshore accounts!
You don’t have 2 trillion? Then BORROW it, fer heavens sakes.
Since it is the Sabbath, Lester may not try to defend his distortion/deflection/distraction today!
It’s a considerable relief knowing that we did not squander any money on stockpiling medical supplies and protective equipment for medical workers — and especially for testing people like South Korea did.
Trump on his Covid-19 victims:
2/26 – “We’re going down, not up.”
3/7 – “I’m not concerned at all.”
3/10 – “It will go away.”
Today – If total U.S. Trump-Covid-19 deaths remain below 100,000 citizens, the Trump gang will have “done a very good job.”
And it’s okay and the other guy does.
The government doesn’t have to HAVE the money, remember the Government PRINTS the money. The problem is this devalues the currency and drives up inflation. And it doesn’t always work even then. See FDR and the depression which didn’t really get over until WWII started and if you couldn’t get a job or serve in the military you were really impaired some how, or totally disabled.
Why are you suddenly concerned about this 2 Trillion dollars. We have been going 2 trillion dollars a year into debt since Trumps Tax giveaway. But as soon as the someone OTHER than rich people MIGHT get some money NOW it is a problem.
