During a Republican lunch on Thursday, Graham encouraged his colleagues not to support direct payments to Americans in what’s known as “phase 3” of the package. Rep.

Under the proposal, the checks would go out in two tranches.

Don't send money to the proles. It'll spoil 'em!

Besides, every dollar they get means a dollar less for us.

In the most couple of weeks nearly $2.5 TRILLION has been printed to "prop up" Wall Street and the financial sector without as much as a minute of air-time among the media propagandists. That money had little or no affect meaning it was wasted.

Now, after many hours of debating and lambasting, they have agreed to giving the American people approximately 12% of that $2.5 TRILLION which went nowhere. This money will go to help off-set expenses of the Covid-19 crisis as people are losing their jobs, having medical expenses, and paying inflated prices imposed by greedy corporations in an unregulated Capitalism state (of course, these same corporations will have their hand-out because of the crisis as well, but we won't hear about it until after they have received their $TRILLIONS).

Whenever big banks and big companies want something from the FED, they drop the prices of stock.

It's time to start building guillotines and give these crooks the same treatment that the French gave their big shots. A haircut at the neck. Only put our crooks face up! Let them see the blade descend!
