    Trump Regime thread.

    Even thought the GOP stranglehold on the Senate still gave them leverage... they basically retreated with their tails between their legs and just took their scraps (like oversight of treasury funds, extra funding for the arts, etc). Instead of disrupting the status quo they chose to play along. In other news... Nationwide poll saw Trump gain 5 points on Joe Biden. Biden still leads by 2% but that's well within the margin of error. Unless he does something really colossally fail, I would set the O/U on Trump winning by 10 points.
  2. Clueless corrupt sack of garbage of the day. He's losing re-election in the most recent poll to his opponent by 4 points, hopefully that number increased.
  3. 4 GOP senators objecting to $600/week extra in unemployment benefits... Bernie sanders says he will hold up the bill until it becomes less anti-worker... sigh.
  4. There is a deal for a $2 T corona stimulus package. Not many details yet, but it is by and large done
  5. So far, like 60% of people approve of Trump's handling of Corona. And 40% of Democrats which is much higher than I would have ever guessed. Will be interesting how those numbers change if he tells everyone to go back to work. Also, here in Iowa, our Governor just said that she will make decisions independent of Trump and doesn't really give a fuck what he says (and she's GOP). So... yeah, could be interesting start to April.
  6. She's a moron, but she has a point with this one...

    Trump Regime thread.

    I hate politicians. Democrats have counter proposal that has it's ups and downs... Increases amounts to individuals and families, which is great. But they also threw in there stuff about companies who take government money be forced to raise minimum wage to 15$, tells the airlines they need to cut carbon emissions, and they want to cancel a bunch of Trump EOs... No matter how great these things are individually, sticking them in this bill makes it seem like it won't get far. Republicans are asshats, Democrats are asshats... Why do we need to throw in all this corporate favoritism and grandstanding political cornerstones ... just makes it that much harder to get this thing passed in a timely fashion. And why do all these bills (not just this one) have to have 5 million different things in it. Why can't we just focus on one thing at a time and get it done.

    2020 Democratic Primary Race

    Bernie ignored her campaign practically the entire time and she was arguably his most ardent support no matter what or who threw trash at him. I am not saying endorse her or go campaign for her, obviously he has his own ship to run, but he is quite simply an ungrateful prick who seems more than a little entitled. He has some good ideas, but he isn't worthy of the support he has.

    Tulsi just suspended her campaign... AND ENDORSED JOE BIDEN. Because Bernie is an asshole.

    Only thing I’m worried about now is that the means testing is too restrictive. We shall see how it plays out in Congress though

    2020 Democratic Primary Race

    The White House is pushing their own bill because Congress is a bunch of shit stains. The Bill Only allocating 500 billion for individuals and added means testing for Pelosi and Co. but it's a start.

    I hate to ask but what’s your view on social security, Medicaid, etc

    2020 Democratic Primary Race

    Nancy Pelosi is refusing to discuss UBI without some form of means-testing. Fuck Democrats. EDIT: And to be clear.. if we were talking a permanent UBI I would be more open to a means testing. I don't really like it, but if it got the job done and both sides to the table with a VERY HIGH ceiling... I could deal with it. But in this emergency situation where the White House has already said we just need to get money into peoples hands as fast as possible... and the fact they want it done within 2 weeks. Now we have Pelosi slowing shit down both in legislature and slowing down those checks after legislation is passed for people to be approved for it? Such bullshit. Party for the working class my dirty asshole (sorry, TP is in very short supply here).

    Yang and his team have been in touch with the Trump white house and he's offering their support and resources in figuring out the best way to make this happen and disperse funds.

    Mnuchin announced that he / the White House want to get cash into peoples hands who have been impacted by work closures as fast as possible -- within 2 weeks is the idea. No specifics yet, details come after. It wouldn't be universal because they say it probably won't be going to people who make a million dollars... But this is a guaranteed basic income. Mnuchin has instruction from the President to go to the Senate Republicans today to expediate these plans. Who knows what will end actually happening or passing... But Trump has come out pushing a guaranteed income (temporarily) before Bernie fucking Sanders.

    Biden committed to a female VP during the debate tonight

    But one of Bernie's campaign slogans is, " My good friend Joe Biden "

    2020 Democratic Primary Race

    Tulsi Gabbard introduces legislation that would fund a temporary UBI for every American ($1k a month) to combat coronavirus. Meanwhile the Fed has authorized 1.5 trillion dollars to artificially prop up money markets and banks. This money could fund UBI for every American for the next 6 months. But ya know, fuck actually helping people.

    2020 Democratic Primary Race

    I agree. Have any thoughts about Biden's running mate? I was thinking probably somebody more in Bernie's realm. Need a VP that can attract the progressives and young people. Warren? Bernie has been destroying Biden's record since Super Tuesday. It's all he talks about. He won't go after the dementia or creeper stuff though, you are right. That's his friend, Joe Biden, which he likes to remind us a lot. lol

    2020 Democratic Primary Race

    The exit polls say he (Biden) has a better chance against Trump. And while I agree that Trump has an edge, I am thinking that that is shrinking more and more. These states... turnout is pretty damn good. I don't know if it will be enough or if it will even carry over to the general... but it is encouraging to see actual numbers up, because that's where the Dems need to be -- especially in places like Virginia, Michigan, Minnesota, etc etc. Biden is winning those areas over Bernie by HUGE numbers. There is zero doubt left in my mind that Biden is the better candidate to take on Trump (relative to Bernie). Bernie is too hostile to people who think differently than him, and that is very off putting to me. Even during his press conference today... He refused to pivot his campaign, he refused to extend an invitation to moderates or even Republicans that hate Trump... He spent the whole time pandering to his base even more, just like he always does. He talked about how dominantly old people like Biden... Which is true. But Bernie needs those people too... lol. The youth and latino vote alone is not winning him this election. If there was ever a time to start bringing people together and extending your hand to those who may disagree with you on a few things... Last night / tonight was it. Bernie failed. AGAIN. He is consistently failing but refuses to change anything. I am really beginning to wish Bernie never ran at all. Another thing I am more convinced of than ever is that Bernie was never going to get anything done if he did get into the White House, as Stevo and I were discussing a few pages back. He would've never made any ground on anything. Guess who did extend a hand? Biden... He thanked Bernie in his speech. He said he wants those voters and how valuable they are come the fall. That's a leader. That's a president. Bernie is incapable of adapting and because of it he is going to lose the nomination to a guy who can't remember his own name. That's sad. Depending on how Bernie bows out of this thing and if he helps bridge the gap between progressives and moderates... he could do some serious damage (or serious good) to the party or to the progressive cause in general. I still think he can make some noise at the debate, but I am not convinced he will do anything new or different from what he has already done or said.

    I agree that Biden will get beat. He just had a great speech though. His team should tell him to carry a teleprompter everywhere he goes and never say anything on his own. A starkly different message than Bernie, who is declining to speak to night.... That’s so insane. There’s millions of people voting for Bernie tonight and he won’t even go out and talk. He is mentally done it seems like.

    2020 Democratic Primary Race

    Exit polls are showing voters are more confident in Biden (idk why but that’s what it is). Keeping polls open (which I agree with) would just make his campaign look even worse. He’s getting pounded by like 100k votes. Lol
