Trump Morphed Into a Mini Andrew Yang
The political bedfellows have never been stranger.
Yesterday, Trump threatened to to Veto the bipartisan package. One of his reasons was the myriad of unrelated attachments.
The other was Trump wanted to send out blanket checks, not of $600 but $2,000.
AOC Hops on the Bandwagon
Free money for everyone.
That's a populist idea that comes up several times every year. It was even a campaign issue.
Andrew Yang Chimes In
Please recall the presidential debates and Andrew Yang: This 43-year-old running for president in 2020 wants to give everyone $1,000 a month in free cash.
Yang calls it a "Freedom Dividend".
Damn, that's a name Trump would have used if only he thought of it first.
Yang wants $1,000 a month. Trump wants a one-time $2,000 payout.
Other Trump Ideas
Yep, it's very disappointing we do not have a balanced budget amendment to stop this nonsense.
Well, we can always use tariffs to balance the budget.
How'd that idea work out?
What a Disgrace
Finally, please note: Trump Calls Covid Bill a Disgrace, Refuses to Sign It
When do Yang, AOC, and Trump get together to hash out the bipartisan details of the "Freedom Dividend"?
Surely there is a compromise here somewhere. The way Washington works, expect $2,000 a month for everyone.
But with AOC openly on board, Trump likely to sign the disgrace then lash out at everyone again.
