COVID RELIEF: TAKE TWO, CALL TUBULARSOCK IN THE MORNING!

 

Now here is the bottom line for you.

By this time in your life if you haven’t figured out that when it comes to self serving the one CON-STANT example is how BOTH the Democraps and the Republican’ts just ALWAYS protect themselves …… FIRST! And more often than not, seldom you.

Well, when it comes to helping you ……. “where will the money come from?”

And Tubularsock knows that none of our congress-people will miss a meal but many Americans’ will. And they REALLY want to help but ……… “where will the money come from?”

But whatever you do make sure you get your 4th Federal Tax Return installment mailed off before the January 15th deadline.

Ohhhh ………. That’s where they get the money …….. YOU!

Now with all the last-minute legislating over the coronavirus relief bill and with all the hand wringing over, “where will we get the money” there was just enough spare change to pass a $5 MILLION addition to the Office of Attending Physician which in essence DOUBLED their existing budget.

There wasn’t enough money for hazard pay for essential workers and emergency funding for local governments but really …… “where will we get the money?”

And fortunately they found the money for OWNERS OF RACEHORSES to get a tax break and a full expansion of tax deductions for business meals which of course working class people don’t really need anyway because they don’t have any money for food. Problem settled!

BUT we are going to get a $600 check which is something or at least Tubularsock has heard people say that. ARE THEY FUCKING STUPID?

And Tubularsock heard a Representative say out loud that the $600 will be a “bridge” until the next stimulus package. What planet does she reside? Tubularsock would gladly take the check and shove it up her fucking asshole with Tubularsock’s fist but knowing how Congress people are she’d like it! The Corporations do that regularly with their campaign contributions!

Oh, do you know what the Office of Attending Physician that Tubularsock mentioned above happens to be?

Well it has been described as “some of the country’s best and most efficient government-run health care”.

And who does it service with several physicians and nurses to provide on-call treatment?
CONGRESS! That’s who.

How CONvenient, don’t you think?

And this new funding is justified because of the new services needed to deal with the pandemic! AND we DO have money for that!

And to put an explanation point on this, this is the THIRD budget hike for the Office of Attending Physician. They hiked it in December 2019 ($3,868,000) and then again in March Congress appropriated an additional $400,000 under the CARES Act. And now an additional $5 MILLION!

So as Congress has been in a stalemate over the expansion of low-cost health care services for you THEY HAVE COVERED THEMSELVES!
And Tubularsock has a feeling that the majority of American citizens don’t even know this.
Great to have a free press owned “buy” the corporate interests that continually buys the Congress. Don’t you think?
