When will the poletricks get off their fat asses and pass a monthly stimulus?

When Trump gets out of office. And the republicans lose the senate. Then we will get the stimulus money.

Apparently never. So I guess you'd better hope Trump's Executive Order doesn't get shut down by the courts.

Here's the problem with a monthly stimulus: it discourages people from actively seeking or taking work. Assuming Trump's plan to give $400/week pans out, that works out to $20,800. Add unemployment to that number and suddenly many lower-wage employees have no incentive to work. I have a friend whose wife was making more with unemployment and the first round of $600/wk stimulus benefits than she made when she was working. He told me that he would rather her stay home since she was making more money not working.

There's too much pride and stubbornness. The idea of a stimulus is repugnant to most Republicans.
