  • It will be Biden's economy in June of 2022.

  • ---- > Most likely, the rise in household income for March is a result of the stimulus. Economic growth refers to stock market gains and is a result of automatic bank bailouts; it doesn't reflect the actual health of the economy. It would be more relevant to monitor the national debt.

    • Rachel is really right on this, though. She's not trying to call attention to herself, she's just concentrating on what's important, and that's her analysis of the news. I really appreciate her modesty and simplicity; no one needs to waste time on her fashion choices. She gets enough negative comments from the trolls about her personal life without adding that. 😐

How have they not countered the Repubs decrying tax increases? Jaime Harrison has got to step it up. They need a PR team that makes the media rounds, not just Psaki

  • This shouldn't surprise anyone. It is the message people like Warren and Sanders have been saying for decades: fair distribution of the tax burden across all members of society. The GOP has been promising tax cuts for the same length of time, but the fine print was always that their tax cuts were mostly for the top 1% and corporations. The GOP has also continuously delivered on their promise but sadly the average GOP voter listens to and believes the message but does not posses the critical thinking skills required to evaluate if message and reality line up. (Hint: they don't.)

  • This makes sense if you forget the massive debt that your kids and their kids will have to pay for. It is like maxing out 5 credit cards and then saying "look how rich I am." Debt is not the same thing as productivity. This is the kind of thing the Democrats said in the late 1960s, before massive inflation and stagnation took hold. On top of that we have rising crime, so get ready for 1974 again.

  • Remember all this in 2022! Remember this all in 2024! It's not about what they promise you, but what they do for you. The past months clearly show that republicans do NOTHING for you, only the 1% count for them (tax cut for the rich would trickle down but never did). Do you keep trusting the little and big lies the republicans spread or are you ready to bet AND VOTE on change? It isn't 'socialism' if it benefits you and the American people as republicans want you to believe. Let your voice be heard by voting the liars out! Vote BLUE in 2022!

  • The stimulus checks are gone in 3 days or less. When payments were received, people went to the gas station to fill their tanks and then they ran to the grocery store. When they got home they couldn't decide what to eat first. The check amounts are pittance. Grateful for every penny but they are seriously just a drop in the bucket. Canadians are each getting 2,000. a month, every month, until people can go back to work.

    • American tax dollars - yours and mine - why? Isn't that the point of taxes - for the government to make smart investments in America and Americans particularly during a time of crisis instead of handing more money to already rich tax evaders (e.g. capital gains tax rates) to hoard even more money to pay less taxes on? That was one of the Obama administration's biggest mistakes - bailing out the banks and Wall Street - instead of giving money directly to keep people in their homes. If they had the great recession would have never been. Now it is time to invest in infrastructure, education, and green energy to save our planet and fix the willful ignorance that led us here.
