Stimulus Checks

March 5, 2021

When voters in Georgia were about to decide in a runoff whether or not to leave the Senate in the hands of the GOP, then President-elect Biden promised that if they elected the two Democrats, “those $2000 (COVID relief) checks will go out the door.” (Sounds like bribery for votes to me, but I assume the authorities will overlook that.)

Well, the voters elected two far-left Democrats, and here’s what they’ve got to show for it.

In the latest version of the bill in the Senate, the $2000 checks have shrunk to $1400 (unless you’re a federal worker, then you get one every week), and income eligibility has shrunk from $100,000 a family to $80,000, which means 8 million fewer Americans will get aid than got it under Trump.

To quote punk rock icon Johnny Rotten, “Ever get the feeling you’ve been cheated?”

According to the Biden Administration, there’s no “crisis” at the border just because their rollback of Trump’s successful border security policies has sparked a massive influx of illegal immigration, including thousands of unaccompanied minors.

Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas insisted this is not a “crisis,” it’s just a “challenge.” He said, "We are challenged at the border. The men and women of the Department of Homeland Security are meeting that challenge."

I think some people are intellectually challenged and definitely truth challenged. They live in their own little world where the climate is a “crisis,” and the fact that some people make more money than others is a “crisis,” but mass illegal immigration that brings in crime, drugs and disease and undermines the jobs and wages of Americans? That’s not a “crisis!” It’s just a fly in the ointment!
