If you were looking to get a check next week, you might have to wait a little longer. Trump went on the record this week stating how the current package was not enough for the Americans who were needing a lifeline to help stay afloat. While many of us have watched these deals burn out of the Senate floor, some of us were cautiously awaiting for a positive outcome this time. Sadly, it is much of the same. One would have to wonder if Trump did this on purpose. He signed an Executive order last month about getting stimulus out to the people and nothing was able to come from it. https://www.nytimes.com/2020/08/08/us/politics/trump-stimulus-bill-coronavirus.html What made him think they would listen to him now? Now the American people will have to wait who knows how long before anyone gets any help.
It has not been a secret that the Senate Republicans and some House Republicans have not wanted to approve a stimulus over or at the $1200 mark, due to debt ceiling concerns. Yet, there have been so many expensive things coming from this administration. It appears as though, once again Americans will have to pull ourselves up and dust ourselves off. This is about class warfare. Nobody seems to care about the poor people or the people who are losing jobs in this country. It is fine for the people to go out and make the rich richer, but when those same people need help, nobody cares.
What this latest snub tells Americans is that no matter how bad the bleeding gets, these Reps will remain true to THEIR agenda. We will have millions of people losing their housing this month. Yet, the Senate stalls once again. If people do not have a place to stay, they will not be able to work. The America we knew before COVID has taken a blow of catastrophic measures and it is due to poor leadership.
It has become a semi-norm for this group of Representatives to fight and forget about their number one job, which should be helping the American people. This is yet another reason why many fear a Republican led Senate. For some reason Republicans are having a hard time understanding what the American people need right now. As always, vote for the person who wants your family to come out on top. Party lines cannot save you.
We will problem solve our way through this nightmare. Do not forget about companies like Uber, Doordash, Waitr, and Grubhub. They offer delivery jobs to people who can pass a criminal check and in some locations, you can deliver with a bike. Ubereats lets people create their own schedule. This means you pick any hour you wish to deliver.
So, in order to celebrate this newest mockery from Congress, I leave you with this! Charles Dickens said it best!
