COVID has shown itself to be nothing but a farce, but it has also certainly shown one thing – no one in Congress cares about the American people. Months of on-again/off-again shutdowns and billions of dollars in revenue lost, many businesses closed forever, and more people out of work than during the Great Depression…. what does Congress do? Play one-up-manship with imaginary money.
So Trump did what he does best, and cut through the tangle with a brilliant move. On the one hand, he’s offered real relief to millions of Americans. On the other hand, he’s revealed to millions more why it doesn’t pay to vote Democrat.
The extension of Unemployment Benefits is needed; no one can deny that. But the rule still applies: there’s no such thing as a free lunch. By forcing states and cities to foot part of the bill (just like he wanted to do with NATO and the UN), Trump is revealing which side of the political coin can’t put their money where their mouth is – literally.
Democrat cities are all in chaos and utterly bankrupt. That’s doubly true of Democrat states.
Well, now the Biden Voters will have to live with the mess they’ve made with their empty-headed voting patterns – meaning less money for them. Meanwhile, Red States, that is, states that are economically in the black, can provide financial aid to their unemployed citizens, guaranteeing that people in those states get the full benefit of Trump’s Executive Order.
As their Anointed One Barack Obama was so fond of saying, “Elections have consequences”.
