Is anyone else sick of hearing that we can’t afford COVID relief from the exact same people who passed a $1,900,000,000,000 tax cut for corporations and the super-rich?

1. A 1.9 trillion tax cut the republicans ran through for their corporate/wealthy clients.

Why that number sounds familiar. Isn't the covid relief bill for 1.9 trillion we're about to pass for rest of us?

Funny how that works.

6. Reverse the $1.9 T tax give-away for the rich to pay for the $1.9 T relief bill. There, paid for.

2. Indeed

Utilizing reconciliation. It wasn't bipartisan. Speaker Ryan and the Congressional Repubs promised it would pay for itself and NOT increase the federal deficit and debt, that it would raise worker's wages, that it would create jobs, and expand the economy.

IT DID EXACTLY THE OPPOSITE OF ALL THOSE PROMISES.

The other huge difference was that the American people were overwhelmingly against the tax cuts package when it was proposed, when it passed, and to this day. The Covid Relief package is approved by 76% of the country and they want it passed.

4. The synchronicity of the dollar amount of those two bills has struck me from the start...

It’s as if the Dems for once in their lives said: “How much will this relief package cost? Well, look at that— exactly what they got.”
