    Watch Democrat reporters argue to pay the workers more to not work

    This is why Democrats are not good for America. Politicians I mean. The public can learn and change. But can the politicians change. They fight the Republicans to pay workers far more to not work than to work on their jobs. A shame I tell you.

    The criticism of Trump to say it mildly is not relevant. The man performs his office magnificently. Take a racer at the 500 Indy race. The driver may have womanized. May have boozed and gambled. May have never voted. But man can that driver race.
    Trump is like the winner of the Indy 500.

    Why do you want everyone who can't work from home to go broke?

    Does not matter. Republicans are trying hard to get a coronovirus stimulus bill passed. Robert must have another reason not to want Americans to have any money.

    Graham makes a good point. Why should anyone be paid more in unemployment benefits than they earned while employed?

    It is not a good point. Robert is saying the government should not pay any money at all to Americans who lost their jobs.

    That isn’t what he said.

    It's a stimulus bill, the whole point is to pump money into the economy while the private sector is frozen. This isn't forever, the payments are for a few months. Giving a little extra help to workers at the bottom of the distribution doesn't mean they're never going back to work again.

    BINGO! Everyone who has been paying any attention at all should know this. All it takes is walking down the street and finding no stores or restaurants are open.
