I’m glad Biden isn’t putting his name on the checks but the memo line should say something like “socialism payment” so conservative heads the nation over will explode, or go uncashed 

 

Put "No Republican voted for this" on the memo line.

Some Rs voted against her motion to adjourn.  I'm shocked that any of them actually want to work! 

 

I wonder if those Republicans will actually vote for the final bill so that they campaign on it.

 

Unlike the Senate Republicans who just don't give a ****.

I watched a few minutes of McCarthy speak and he keeps using the word socialism to strike fear into the hearts of people. I'm 100% positive based on his use of the word that he does not know what that word means, or in reality he knows that the majority of republicans don't know what it means. 

 

The only way they are trying to spin the bill that has major bipartisan support is to just hammer it as socialist.

He counts on viewers to not know what certain words really mean.

These are the same people that ran an entire election cycle on “you didn’t build that”

 

whether it’s outright lying or just purposefully out of context, the foundation of all their strategies involves lying/dishonesty

 

their supporters eat it up because they either don’t care or aren’t smart enough to know they’re being lied to constantly.

My favorite is still the one from the Tea Party..."Keep Your Government Hands Off My Medicare!"  :ols:

I'm firmly convinced that Republican dictionaries define socialism as "the political belief that government decisions should be made based on what's best for the citizens."

Or my favorite - "Obamacare is horrible. People should use the ACA Exchange I go through! It's much better!"

Lol these guys trying to take credit for something they did not vote for

 

 

Wait, how can this be??  $29B is 15%, so how can 90% be going elsewhere. I thought 90% was going overseas? Or is to "blue states", or is it AOC sinces shes now worth over $1M. This is all just too confusing. I guess I will need to check out Parler, Newsmax or OAN so they can tell me what to think. Can't trust that Fox anymore - well except when I agree with them.

Biden should hold a prime time press conference to address the nation that he uses to discuss its passing and some highlights of what it does and how it helps Americans and why. 
 

It would be a massive messaging win. That would drive home this victory. Then close with how we are turning our attention to a large infrastructure bill that will do such and such and put the pressure on republicans 

 

Ask and ye shall receive:

 

The Biden blitz is coming

 

President Joe Biden spent the first months of his presidency hunkered down as he worked on getting more vaccines into people’s arms and a massive bill to deal with the pandemic to his desk.

 

With that $1.9 trillion legislation set to clear Congress and the pace of vaccinations picking up, the White House is preparing to embark on a new, far more public-facing phase.

 

Biden is scheduled to deliver his first prime-time address as president Thursday, which will focus on the Covid crisis. Later this month, he’ll hold the first press conference of his young presidency. He’s committed to making a still-unscheduled address to Congress. And officials are busy preparing for a sprawling sales campaign designed to draw attention to the benefits of the Covid-relief package. Biden, first lady Jill Biden, Vice President Kamala Harris and others will hit the road to tout, among other things: the $1,400 checks, how billions of dollars in the bill will reopen schools, and the investments being made in increasing the numbers of vaccinations.

 

“There are a lot of people who use the term ‘victory lap’ in a derogatory way. I’ve already heard people saying that Biden is about to take a victory lap. Well, that’s a lot of crap,” said House Majority Whip Jim Clyburn (D-S.C.), a close Biden ally. “One of the—if not the biggest—mistakes that Obama made, in my opinion, was getting the Recovery Act done and not explaining to people what he had done.”

 

Biden and top administration officials acknowledged they’ll have to do more to ensure the benefits of their package sink into the public’s consciousness. And they’ve spent weeks carefully planning how best to begin their efforts while much of the country remains consumed by the pandemic. White House press secretary Jen Psaki said Tuesday that once the American Rescue Plan is signed, “We will need to do some work and use our best voices.”

Ok, just got home, had no time to catch up on this, so I'm going to have you guys fill me in...if you would be so kind.

 

So the monthly payments for children are $300 a month for a child under six, how long does this last for? Is there a child limit? Does each child also get $1400? I know its a tax credit, does this take money out of these families taxes at the end of the year?

Here is a decent breakdown. There may be something better  but this should get you started.
