Other countries have done much better than us. The decision to force people to go to work and inevitably catch the virus was a policy choice. The refusal to pay people to stay home is bipartisan bedrock–just look at Democratic advisor Larry Summers recently contending that 1-time $2000 checks is a bad idea. The ruling class hates us and wants us to suffer. They’re so decadent and out of touch that they no longer realize that their wealth is built by our labor

Pelosi, Schumer, and almost the whole Democratic minority in the senate have called for $2000 checks. I’m not sure why you are fixated on Larry Summers who has no power at all…he gets paid to write think pieces for Bloomberg lol.

Pelosi took to the House floor to say that $600 was a meaningful amount of money for working families. Summers is actually articulating the Democratic consensus. Pelosi opposes the 2k as much as McConnell does. Don’t let these lying snakes fool you!

She is the one bringing the vote to the house…

What are you on about? Larry Summers is a nobody who has no influence on anything except your distorted perception of what’s actually happening in congress.

Sorry you continue to apologize for Democrats! If Pelosi wanted to pay people to stay home, she had 9 months to do it in! And now what–a last-minute flip-flop with an obviously partisan angle and you actually confuse it for sincerity. Pathetic. Larry Summers was the President of Harvard, the U.S. Treasury Secretary, and advised the Biden campaign. If you think that he is a nobody and that his opinions do not reflect the consensus of the Democratic machine that he is very much a part of, I invite you to go post on Dailykos where you will find more… Read more »

Um maybe you’re forgetting about the stimulus bill the Dem controlled house passed IN MAY 2020?! The republican senate blocked it. This is not a “last minute flip-flop”.

COVID-19 might be our biggest export to Mexico after seeing all the gay men flocking to Puerto Vallarta for New Year’s.
