According to political strategist Karl Rove, Republican and Independent voters are going to change their minds and get mad about receiving $1,400 checks.
“Stimulus checks — up to $1,400 for Americans making up to $75,000 a year — had the highest level of support among registered voters at 79 percent. Ninety-one percent of Democrats supported the measure and 67 percent of Republicans did, as well.
Just over half of Republicans (51 percent) also backed extending unemployment benefits of an extra $300 a week in federal support until Sept. 6, and expanding the child tax credit for one year to $3,600 for each child under 6 and $3,000 for children ages 6 to 17 (53 percent). Those provisions received 70 percent and 69 percent support, respectively, from all voters. …”
We each got the $1,400 stimmy this morning.
It is going right back out the door though to pay for bills. Such will also be the experience of millions of people in this country on both sides. The system is set up in a way that only really benefits the worst people in American politics: the True Cons on the Right and the Rad Libs on the Left.
Note: In my view, we should restrict immigration and secure the border, get rid of political correctness/wokeness and redistribute wealth to a more reasonable level. This is the only way that things will ever really change. Unfortunately, it seems that our toxic culture and economic system will continue to get worse until something happens and it will likely be a hard landing.
