Congress is currently hammering out the details of a second coronavirus relief bill since the one that doled out $1200 in March. In that time, unemployment rates have skyrocketed and evictions are picking up all over the country.
Meanwhile, in most other nations on par with the U.S. for development and wealth, citizens have been getting monthly payouts to help with the economic hit COVID-19 has brought.
It is starting to look like U.S. citizens will FINALLY be getting some more relief money to help with their bills, reports CNBC. They may be getting $600. After nine months.
The number is so low, it’s an insult. It’s rage-inducing. It’s a call to action. It’s also great material for Twitter jokes.
We should definitely be raging at the government for the careless cruelty they’ve been exhibiting this year and many people are. Many other people are making Twitter jokes, too, because sometimes that’s how we have to process anger and despair.
