7.25 * 80 is $580.

So that's what they give us, low balling the masses in peril.

$1200, oh MW for a month, yeah they are real cute with $.



How much stolen tax payer $ will be recovered in '21/'22?

THAT alone is why they are so fucking out of touch and clueless that they think $600 will help people who are drowning in poverty because of this pandemic.

$2.43 billion. I imagine it has doubled by now.

Millionaires and up in America: 5% of the population
Millionaires and up in Congress: 56% of the population

Until you change this, there will be no progress in America!

One of my neurons is thinking that came from just one Komrade.

His paltry six-figure federal salary means America has been outbid for his loyalties. Sadly, he's not alone in the GOP (Government Of Putin).

Spend your $600 wisely.

That there has to be some shenanigans to that kind of growth in net worth. I know his wife is rich, so maybe it that (there are some issues there too, of course).

This was while the media was distracted by Trump's incessant flying circus, the Pandemic, and the possibility of Hunter Biden getting a jaywalking ticket.

52 GOP senators simultaneously shouted, "Russia, if you're listening!"

Ron Johnson decided to collect his rubles in person on July 4th.

Personal bank accts. when actually it's OUR money paid through taxes. Like W said, it's our money and we should have more of it in our pockets.

This point should be included in all discussion about this relief $$.
