Finally. Americans will finally get the $1,400-$2,000 they deserve. Biden will do the right thing and increase unemployment payments and funding to state and local governments.

The Biden administration is starting out with a bang. Thank goodness for competent leadership again.

Notice all Democrat 'stimulus' programs involve giving away taxpayer dollars only. There is never anything about job creation. It's because Democrats prevent job creation. President Trump had the most robust economy in history. He didn't have a silly 'Jobs Bill'

Unfortunately, the more goodies that are included in a ‘stimulus’ package then the more likely it is to get bogged down in congressional debate.

Isn't unemployment at a record high under Trump's watch? That didn't happen under Obama, Bush, Clinton, Reagan, or Carter.

Just FYI

Spending money into the economy is job creation.

Hard for businesses to stay in business when nobody can buy anything.

And Trump's economy looks like shit right about now.

Because of the Democrat-led closures. Trump, as we know, never wanted closures. So, again, you're blaming the wrong people. But you knew that, right?

I don't expect a reply back but you are wrong:


Under Trump, in the three years prior to the pandemic, there were an additional 6.4 million jobs. In the last three years under Obama, seven million jobs were added.

Does Biden know he is not President yet?

So his economy was "robust" but fell apart at the first sign of trouble?

Nobody should ever make plans and should just shoot from the hip beginning on day one.

Trump OFFICIALLY was the one to recommend the closures.

Deny it. Please

Perhaps you havent been paying attention, but there is a global pandemic going on and the knee-jerk left wing reaction to it was to shutter all non-essential businesses. What did you think was going to happen when the state forced the layoffs of 40 million Americans?

I wonder what happened in 2020 to cause so much unemployment.
Trump mishandled a pandemic. By which I mean, "he refused to admit there was a problem."

The stimlus checks go directly into the economy, thus stimulating business and ultimately creating jobs.

It's a far more direct and effective method than trickle down economics which was proven to be a lie in a recent study.

And the majority of companies used their recent tax break to buy back their stock rather than create jobs and expand their business.

You think if Trump admitted there was a problem, the pandemic wouldn't have happened and people would have kept their jobs?
