He @Booker4KY, want any ammo to go after @RandPaul for stuff that's useless? Because this can help.
I mean from a Self-declared "#Libertarian", who seriously isn't he's #SocialConservative at best, it's not hard to dig up dirt on @RandPaul of his Voting Records. Like the 2016 Tax Bill that gave more money to the #Rich, Supports Banning #Abortion (which isn't Libertarian),...
Opposes #LGBTQIA Rights like Same Sex Marriage & wanted it to be banned, Rand is inconsistent on #MilitarySpending of sometimes leaning to not for it or for it in offensive wars (which many Libertarians call that out & believe in Defense of a Direct Threat of an Attack)...

everyone was promised $2000 #StimulusChecks "immediately after" dems won the georgia senate races. instead they narrowed the scope of those who will receive it to below the amount who got one under trump, it became 1400, and you had to wait 2 months for it
democrats could have passed 2K checks for everyone right away. it was literally polling way higher than every single dem candidate. it was the bare minimum they could do to show they aren't liars. but no, they had to fuck it up with delays, deceit and means-testing bullshit
whenever you post something like this you get a barrage of 12 year old "anarcho-bidenists" who have glommed on to some youtube surrogate daddy or other saying this in unison while thinking they are being very Wonky and Realistic:

Just to be clear #StimulusChecks is the BARE MINIMUM of what the government should be doing. They should be ensuring

- Everyone gets paid until pandemic is done.

- Creating long term federal jobs programs for all. #JobsAndCare

- Cancelling Rent.

It’s actually simple.
This is the richest country in the world, you could have found the money somewhere. Also legit Ron Johnson’s seat is up in 2022 just saying.
How about we give the people’s furlough to Ron Johnson how about he don’t get paid for the next 4 months and his check is redistributed to people suffering?

NEWS: @HawleyMO is not ruling out taking action before Congress certifies the electoral college vote

"Raising questions about the election is a legitimate thing I'm studying how I might do that, what the procedure is & trying to gather evidence"

The certification takes place Jan 6th.

.@HawleyMO tells me he's been assured #stimuluschecks will be in final COVID relief bill.

At this point the amount being floated is closer to $600, Hawley says he'd rather it be $1,200 but will wait until the bill is presented to determine if he'll back the proposal

Many have already received their #StimulusChecks but about 12 million Americans risk missing out because they, unlike millions of people who are receiving them automatically, must file a form by Oct. 15 to receive it.… Image
These 12 million Americans include very low-income families with children, people who have been disconnected from work opportunities for a long period, & many low-income adults not raising children in their home.

9 million - roughly 75% - participate in #SNAP or #Medicaid. Image
This group of people eligible for payments are disproportionately people of color because they are likelier to have lower incomes due to historical racism & ongoing bias & discrimination.…

Like many, I’ve had some extra fee time these days... After rebinging @theofficenbc and #theofficereunion I was inspired.

A thread of Trump’s handling of the #coronavirus (#COVID19) pandemic, as told by Michael Scott. #TheOffice
Way back in 2018, Trump decided it was a good idea to disassemble the #Pandemic Response Team – created by the Obama administration in case there was “an airborne disease that is deadly.” This can’t go wrong! #thiswaspreventable
Trump does nothing to replace this. He plays golf and insults people on Twitter – just the normal things that presidents do right?
