Will wonders never cease?
Democrats have finally found something on which they can agree with President Donald Trump — namely, the stingy six hundred bucks Congress is so graciously willing to send most Americans in new coronavirus relief is a sick, stupid joke, especially when billions are going to foreign countries from ignorant things like “gender” programs.
High-profile members of the Democrat Party, including Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), are rallying behind President Donald Trump's call for Congress to provide more direct relief to the American people in the form of higher stimulus checks.
The president on Tuesday addressed the $2.3 trillion coronavirus relief and government spending bill passed by both chambers earlier this week and demanded they amend the bill to provide more direct relief to American families.
'I am asking Congress to amend this bill and increase the ridiculously low $600 to $2,000, or $4,000 for a couple,' Trump said, drawing support from prominent Democrats.
Democrats eagerly jumped on board.
Let's do it. @RashidaTlaib and I already co-wrote the COVID amendment for $2,000 checks, so it's ready to go.
Glad to see the President is willing to support our legislation.

Now granted, Democrats never have a problem with handing out government money; the more Americans they can hook on the dole, the more of them they can control.
The budget deficit is also absurd, but we’re past the point of expecting congresses and presidents in the modern era to actually work together to pay it down.
And in this case, the president is right: Sending $600 to Americans stung over repeated Democrat-led shutdowns of businesses is absurd, and a slap in the face.
