Stimulus Bill

There is a bill. Reports are it’s a big few strings attached bill for the richest corporations (6 trillion), loans for small business, a too-small one time payment for individuals. David Dayen is apoplectic.

To her credit, Warren managed to get something for individuals, and reportedly Sanders managed to get gig economy workers included, but the overall deal stinks.

Meantime, we are still on track for genocide in the red states.

Do you think anyone in the Red States will figure it out?

I don't know. If the epidemic is allowed to grow unchecked, the way it is in some states, it is going to seem like the wrath of god when it peaks, and who knows how the faithful will react?
