#1 The slippery slope toward the desired reparations end-state.

#2 Yes we have to limit it to only those who don’t work anyway and didn’t really lose anything. /sarc

#3 I don’t need an extra $600. I don’t want it if it means extra national debt for my children to pay off. Let mine go to someone for whom it will make a difference

As it happens, though, there were income limits for the first round of stimulus checks, and more stringent limits for the current $600. So I was happy not to receive a check either time, and expected not to receive one again, if the Biden proposal passed.

This suggests to me that his mainly pork proposal is in trouble, and he hopes this will make the Republicans want to help him get it passed.

#4 Whoops! An extra $1400 is what I don’t need, though we’re retired, so I didn’t need help replacing lost income previously, either.

#5 If another check arrives, I'll be, again, turning it around to a non-eGOP candidate.

#6 This time instead of sending it out in debit cards, send it all out in Harriet Tubman $20 bills. BTW, how much did those cards cost over and above the money on them?

#7 In other words, wealth redistribution. Lets put another $1.7 trillion on the backs of the middle class.

#9 I gave my $1,200 check to the Trump campaign at 800% matching, telling my Lib friends about that was a gratifying experience

#10 Ouch, 746. That’s no scalpel, that’s a sledgehammer!
