Washington shows just why the country shouldn't depend on it for stimulus

Washington’s very Washingtonian behavior has just underscored why a stimulus should not depend on Washington.

The same day the United States registered its highest unemployment rate since the Great Depression, the White House announced that those hoping for more help from the feds shouldn’t hold their breath.

"We're in no rush, we're in no rush," President Trump said Friday. His economic advisers and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) echoed this message.

In other words, don’t plan on more aid to states, which are already so strapped for cash that they’re cutting Medicaid during a pandemic. Don’t expect extensions of financial lifelines for jobless workers.
