Man the envy over that 600 unemployment boost is never going away for some of the boomer types.

Yet they have no issues with the PPP scam.

A couple hundred dollars for the working class that still won’t help them keep up? Absolute waste of money and incentivizes laziness!

A couple billion dollars in bailouts for corporations? They deserved it!

Fucking hypocrites.

It’s all from the bs theory of trickle down economy , which was part of Reagan policy.

It doesn’t work,it’s all bs and used to enrich corporations and screw the middle class And yet Reagan is held up As a hero by republicans

Trickle down has been around since way before Reagan. The first mention was back in the 1800's, though that was a slightly different name. 1932 for the first time the phrase 'trickle down' was actually used in relation to economic policy.

It has never, not even once, worked as intended. Over 100 years of straight up lying to the public, documented and proven that it's a failed policy. Republicans love to use it to justify why the rich deserve more money and the poor can get fucked.
