There is an old saying that goes “politics makes strange bed fellows” and there’s seldom been better proof of that than what’s going on in Washing DC right now. Democrats in the U.S. house who’ve spent much of the past 4 years trying to impeach president Donald Trump and opposing his every move find they have an unexpected ally in the president in their calls for a big increase in the level of federal government direct payments proposed for every American adult in a second Coronavirus stimulus package sent to the president by congress earlier this week. Democrats want the $600.00 checks that have been proposed to be increased to $2,000.00. On Tuesday The president called the $600.00 amount ridiculously low, said it’s not the kind of relief that American tax payers need to deal with the pandemic And also said congress could find the money for bigger stimulus checks by getting rid of the billions of dollars in pork and foreign aid that’s included in what’s supposed to be a stimulus package. What wasn’t discussed much at all in the debate over a 2nd pandemic stimulus package, is how the government will pay for the payments. I guess someone else will have to worry about that some time in the future. That’s the way I see it.
