Bernie Sanders was totally on fire in the Senate, he shamed the Republicans and the Senate into passing the $2 TRILLION economic stimulus bill - Bernie won for the working class! He shamed the other Senators into voting for laid off workers to get 100% of their salary, up to $75,000/year, including tipped and gig workers! This will save people and save the economy. Next the bill goes to the House. Bernie - what a hero for the working class and for America.

I am a "Bernie Bro", but I hate to break it to you. Bernie did the working class no real favors. Yes, he threatened to hold up the bill unless the Republicans gave in to extended unemployment insurance provisions, and those are a "good thing", but they are merely a "shiny object" when one considers that the real purpose of the bill was to set up America to be purchased by the Oligarchy.

$425B is going to be provided to the Fed so they can make loans to "distressed businesses", Because of Fractional Banking the Fed can put out $4.25Trillion in loans. These will be loans to "Big Business" or the Oligarchy


Other "features":

  • Big Business can immediately lay off 10% of its work force
  • After 1 year, the money can be used for stock buy-backs and stock dividends
  • After 30 Sep 2020 Business can lay-off as many employees as they wish
  • The government cannot take equity in any business, so the Oligarchy remains in control
  • Steve Mnuchin is given the authority to make these loans. Remember, he's the guy who stole your home.

Dylan Ratigan is interviewed by Jimmy Dore. Ratigan calls the bill

"An Abomination beyond all Comprehension" .



If you do NOTHING ELSE, be sure to listen to Ratigan's rant starting at 40:00 into the show.

This rant was about the 2008/09 crisis. It is all happening again.
