Is The Push For $2,000 Checks All a Ruse?

This is my stimulus update for Wednesday, December Thirtieth. 

Pelosi had a press conference this morning, her last of the year, I watched the whole thing, not very interesting frankly, I’ll tell you more about it later in this video, but first things first, I was overjoyed to hear that Treasury started sending out stimulus payments yesterday via direct deposit, I made a quick video here on the channel when I saw that press release from Treasury, but of course as many of you say, you won’t believe it until the money is in your bank account, and I was happy to see many commenters saying that they received their stimulus payments, six hundred twelve hundred, eighteen, twenty-four hundred, three thousand, whatever, depending on family size, yesterday evening. 

But let us all know in the comments if you received yours or if you’re still waiting.  So that’s the news on the six-hundred-dollar stimulus payment, for the two-thousand-dollar stimulus payment legislation, the big news yesterday was that to nobody’s surprise Republicans blocked Senator Chuck Schumer’s attempt to get unanimous consent for the CASH Act, the two-thousand-dollar stimulus check bill that passed the House, and Mitch McConnell put forth his own two-thousand-dollar stimulus check bill, this one including two thousand dollar stimulus checks for non-dependent adults, no change for dependent children, that’s different than the CASH Act, and McConnell also added two other things in his legislation, namely, a repeal of Section 230 and a committee to investigate the integrity of the 2020 federal elections, including the presidential election.

So the question is, is this whole two thousand dollar stimulus check thing, is it all a ruse?  And I’m not just talking about Mitch McConnell because I don’t think Mitch McConnell is the one who had the bright idea to set up a committee to investigate election fraud in the 2020 Election. 

I’m fairly confident that that little gem came from Donald Trump.  And Trump in his statement basically foreshadowed McConnell’s legislation when he said in his statement, “The Senate will start the process for a vote that increases checks to $2,000, repeals Section 230, and starts an investigation into voter fraud.” 

Trump knew that the Democrats wouldn’t go for this if all these things were combined into one piece of legislation, and look at his tweet from yesterday, “Unless Republicans have a death wish, and it is also the right thing to do, they must approve the $2000 payments ASAP. $600 IS NOT ENOUGH! Also, get rid of Section 230 – Don’t let Big Tech steal our Country, and don’t let the Democrats steal the Presidential Election. Get tough!” 

So who’s he really trying to appeal to here?  Republicans who he has criticized almost as much Democrats recently?  Or is he trying to appeal to Democrats, who he literally says in this tweet stole the Presidential Election? 

Or is this just some attempt at trying to make people like him and firing up his base to vote in the Georgia elections?  But even that’s self-defeating because he’s being openly critical of Republicans here. 

And let’s not leave out Nancy Pelosi, this is the first time she has pushed for two thousand dollar stimulus checks, not even in the three-plus-trillion-dollar HEROES Act did she want to give more than twelve hundred dollars. 

Speaking of Pelosi, she held a press conference this morning.  She opened by expressing her condolences for the family of Congressman-elect Luke Letlow, who passed away yesterday from complications of COVID-19 after a procedure to remove a blood clot as a complication of COVID. 

Pelosi then gave a history of the recently-enacted stimulus bill, how the President received the stimulus slash government omnibus on Christmas Eve and finally signed it on Sunday.  Pelosi pointed out how the President expressed support for the two-thousand-dollar direct payment, which Pelosi said Democrats “madly embraced,” she pointed out how the House passed it on Monday and sent it over to Mitch McConnell and the Senate and she said that Mitch and the Senate Republicans are holding it up. 

Pelosi said in blocking it they are in denial of the hardship that the American people are experiencing now, healthwise, financially, and in every way whose lives and livelihoods are on the brink.  Pelosi said she hopes that in the days ahead that they will see the light and understand the suffering going on in our country.  Pelosi said it’s amazing to see the patience Republicans have when it comes to other people’s suffering. 

She said these Republicans seem to have an endless tolerance for other people’s sadness and she urged Mitch McConnell to stop his obstruction and to bring the two thousand dollar stimulus check legislation to the floor of the Senate.  Pelosi said it’s important to note how important money in the pocket of the American people is, they spend it, they inject demand into the economy, and that is job-creating, and that is true, you spend a dollar at a local business, that local business uses that dollar to pay its employees, to buy more supplies from other businesses in the area, business owner takes a portion of it to order takeout from a restaurant in the area, it’s true. 

Pelosi also brought up state and local funding and honoring our heroes through state and local funding, which she said is an important part of what she believes Congress will do next in Twenty-Twenty-One.  She brought up vaccine distribution, how the Trump administration is holding it up, and she said that this has to be done better and we can hope that in the last few weeks of the Trump administration that they will conduct themselves more efficiently on vaccine distribution. 

She brought up the disparities in income and equity and said that a new coronavirus-related panel called the Select Committee on Economic Disparity, Fairness, and Growth will be instituted in the new Congress.  She said that her members are full of exuberance and suggestions and that some proposed to Pelosi two thousand dollars a month, others a wage guarantee, others the employment retention tax credit. 

But she closed by reiterating that a two-thousand-dollar direct payment to the American people is being held up by Mitch McConnell. 

In the Q&A Pelosi was asked about Josh Hawley saying that he will object to the election certification process as well as if time is running out in this Congress for the two thousand dollar stimulus check legislation and was asked if the idea dies in this Congress will Pelosi bring it up in the next Congress that begins on January Third, and Pelosi wouldn’t commit.  She just said let’s be hopeful this happens this week.

So that’s interesting, like, does Pelosi want to bring this up again in the next Congress and debate it going into Biden’s Inauguration Day, she would not commit to answering that question, and my guess is she doesn’t want to commit to answering that question yet before the Georgia runoffs.
