  1. There are so many ways that our economy is ****ed right now that it’s hard to focus on any one of them. The $400 emergency thing is a big one. The housing market in most areas has priced the majority of people out of ever owning a home...that’s another one. The rising costs of health care and college is another. How in the **** can medical bills be the #1 cause of bankruptcy in this country? Nowhere else in the developed world is that the case. And recognizing all of that, I still say that people spent too much time and energy lobbying blame on Biden for rhetoric that minimized the
  2. I suspect that they’ll pass the covid bill very easily now and then come back with a separate (non-reconciliation) bill to increase the minimum wage to $12 an hour. They have the votes for that. Some in the GOP will threaten a filibuster, but I’m not sure that it will be politically viable to block such a popular bill and the $12 increase might actually get 10 GOP votes anyway. And again, I support a $15 increase. But frankly, this could be a really good move for Dems to put up a standalone $12 increase and dare the GOP to filibuster. If they do filibuster (and I”m not sure they wil
  3. As much as I support it, this is probably for the best because that was proving to be a huge hangup for the entire bill. It should pass a lot more easily now.
  4. The Senate Parliamentarian just ruled that minimum wage increase cannot be included in reconciliation process.
  5. That’s the main reason that I”m not in a hurry to buy a PS5 right now. I want to know what’s going to happen with Starfield and Elder Scrolls 6 before I make that plunge.
  6. Biden Reopens Gateway For Green Cards And Work Visas, Reversing Trump COVID-19 Freeze https://www.npr.org/2021/02/24/971206197/biden-reopens-gateway-for-green-cards-work-visas-reversing-trump-covid-19-freeze
  7. Is the GME thing a 1-month anniversary celebration or something?
  8. I did not. I saw something about paying news sources in Australia, but not sure if that’s what you’re talking about.
  9. Indeed. People should rely on credible sources of information instead of dumb*** randos on Twitter or Facebook. Couldn’t agree more.
  10. Also, you’re talking about the person who posted stuff from this Twitter account...
  11. The attempt to dunk on Blackburn is deceptive. “Barefoot Contessa Anne Hudgens” did not factor into her calculation the “Much, much, more” which is estimated to cost exactly $$$. That would bring the percentage to at least ???% of the bill’s total price. Do better next time.
  12. You don’t know this because it didn’t happen and according to you we cannot know anything unless it happened and if it didn’t happen then we cannot know it and any suggestion that we know something that did not already happen is horse****. You’ve jumped the shark, dude.
  13. In tweets after the Capitol insurrection, Greene falsely suggested that those who had broken into the Capitol were not Republicans and instead falsely implied so-called "Antifa" dressed as Trump supporters were to blame. In fact, Anthony Aguero, a conservative livestreamer, activist and associate of Greene, said on video following the January 6 assault on the Capitol that he had been among those who entered and attacked those who falsely claimed it was done by "Antifa." "We were all there. It was not Antifa and it was not BLM. It was Trump supporters that did that yesterday. I'm the
  14. No, I was giving an example of what Ya Boi J was talking about. That’s all it was.
  15. I’m paraphrasing, but pretty close to an actual quote by somebody yesterday...”a promise was made to me and my family.”
  16. There definitely needs to be a lot more oversight on unemployment and other programs to prevent people from gaming the system. That’s something that doesn’t get talked about nearly enough.
  17. I don’t see a lack of urgency or a failure to use his power in terms of the checks. Biden can’t just order checks be sent out via EO. And the Senate parliamentarian isn’t expected to rule on the reconciliation process until later today, so they can’t pass anything until that happens. What I see are a bunch of people blaming Biden for a delay he didn’t cause and attacking him for rhetoric that every other politician uses. Seems blown out of proportion especially considering that the delay created by the GOP is causing real economic harm to Americans and that absent the GOP delay, thos
  18. Who is causing the suffering that the delay in checks is creating across the country? Why aren’t you expressing more outrage and anger at them than at Biden?
