“Leave it to Mitch McConnell and [President] Donald Trump to propose a bill that creates tax write-offs for fancy lunches and gives the middle finger to working families and 20 million unemployed Americans,” said Rep. Don Beyer (D-Va.). “This is not a serious proposal, it is a slap in the face to people who need help.”

And yet the GOP rubes getting the slap in the face will gladly vote Republican again, and again. Proving how well the 40+ year plan to dumb down the American electorate has worked.

Vengeful Trump and his cronies want to make recovery as difficult as possible for Biden, so they can blame Democrats. Under orange sloth rule, truth has lost any and all meanings. He has used 74 million voters to prove Joseph Goebbels was right.
