The Stimulus that Wasn’t. Democrats are overplaying their hands… | by Thaddeus R. Winker | The Liberty Hawk | Feb, 2021 | Medium

Since late last year, Washington has been abuzz about writing $2,000 checks for people who made less than $75,000 in either 2019 or 2020. Perhaps in no small part because of the failure to pass legislation that would have written a third check for Americans who may or may not be struggling to make ends meet, Democrats now have full control of the federal government. Joe Biden and other leaders have all promised us that “help is on the way” and have been working to snake a $1.9T bill through Congress and onto President Biden’s desk.It has now been over a month since Joe Biden took office,...

The OmniStimuDefense Bill. Congressional Dysfunction Strikes Again | by Thaddeus R. Winker | The Liberty Hawk | Dec, 2020 | Medium

The past week has been a bit of a whirlwind with Congress getting close to a compromise on not only the Constitutionally mandated annual funding of the government but also the much delayed and anticipated COVID Stimulus.They finally reached an agreement on principle after a bipartisan, bicameral group put together a $900 billion proposal that gave everyone something but not everything they wanted.
