Can't wait to see all the Republicans and everyone that talked shit about Bernie Sanders being a democratic socialist return their checks and fight for companies not to receive $ .... since that's the shit I've been hearing everywhere for over a year

 

 

Maybe they can use their bootstraps like they're always telling us

Which is fine. I'm still employed through this.

returning Americans their tax dollars in a crisis isn't socialism unless they try and raise the tax rate.

So you mean to tell us OP is that this would still be happening if this Virus Crisis didn;t exist?

So you mean socialism is good sometimes? Who gets to decide when it's good and when it's evil?

I pulled myself up by my “bootstraps” a long time ago so I don’t have to go through this. I’m lucky to be as fortunate as I am and have the job that I do.
 

why are people like OP so interested in making this disaster a soap box so they can spout their political rhetoric?

I too am still working and will not lose my job or get laid off because of this. Kind of unfair that I would be getting a check. It really needs to go to those in real need which would be way to complicated to figure out. It is also strange that it is tied to your 2019 tax return if you had/have filed it. I have not yet sent it in. So some will delay sending in their 2019 as their 2018 probably has a lower income thus getting you a higher check provided you are one of those over the $75,000/$150,000 threshold for the full $1200/$2400 amount.

Again, I wish there was a plausible way to get the money to only those that are not working or have been laid off or lost their job due to this virus...

Solid points. Perhaps they can look at unemployment and who has filed this year? Crazy times we live in.

It's always good to get YOUR money back. High taxes are evil and downright Un-American.

The vast majority of people getting a check are getting someone else's money. 44% of Americans pay no federal income tax. Also, roughly 10% of Americans (i.e., the people who pay a lot in taxes) will get nothing.

Don't pretend this is anything other than a redistribution of someone else's wealth in a time of need.

I agree with this, but I see it as a necessary evil. If we open businesses back up and consumers have no money to spend then we might as well just call it a day and permanently close most businesses. Whole thing is a mess and there are no good solutions.

If you don't understand the difference between a temporary stimulus in response to economic threat from a global pandemic versus permanent reorganization of our system in favor of the redistribution of wealth according to Marxism acting as a trojan horse for the ultimate governmental control of private industry, then I can't help your silly shit of a self.

OP is dumb.

This argument would be valid if people weren't being forced by the government into lockdown

Couldn't agree more but it goes to my point of people just talking shit and not believing or practicing what they say

A one time stimulus check to keep the economy from crashing is not a redistribution of wealth, that’s silly.
