Politicians need to feel the pain
Don’t let them have access to their bank accounts and give them $1200 to work with and that’s it until the economy is opened back up.

They do all the talking but they’re divorced from the pain people are feeling with not being able to work, especially the poor. It’s time to make them really understand the impact of the decisions they’re making.

Their salaries should be tied to the median income of their district

They pad their pockets even more while we suffer. Don't kid yourself.

Anytime there is a crisis they should get pay suspended.

Outside of Trump, Kudlow, Mnuchin, Gaetz, Crenshaw, Carson; they've all been really useless.

Absolute agreement - make them feel the pain they are requiring of others to make themselves feel important and good virtuous.

NOT an accurate description of what he said.

He says "the entire package" provides liquidity for 10 weeks. In addition to the $1200 checks, unemployment is enhanced by 600 dollars a week, and ppp grants are designed to keep workers on payroll.

why must you lie?

OK

unemployment is enhanced by 600 dollars a week
There is no UE in Florida right now
quote:

ppp grants are designed to keep workers on payroll.

The ones that are no longer?

And you can't get a ppp loan and be on unemployment

He's out to lunch
