Response to Jose Garcia (Original post)

Thu Mar 26, 2020, 11:47 AM

63. AOC is correct about the bill.

From what I heard the 500 billion will go to the Fed as a down payment for them to spend another 2.6 trillion or more. No one has oversight over the Fed. I may be totally off base about this but nevertheless this is just another example of what Naomi Klein wrote in her book The Shock Doctrine, disaster capitalism or as I like to call it highway robbery.

When these trillions of dollars get spent Republicans will have a change of heart about spending money and the debt and then they will come after Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid.

I guess 1.5 trillion dollars doesn't last very long, corporations spent it on buy backs and bonuses.

Picketty was also right, this is going to really widen the income inequality gap.
