This is not an endorsement of any political party or politician. It’s merely my observation of what I am seeing on YouTube and various news outlets. I am seeing way too many YouTubers spouting nonsense when it comes to stimulus updates. They are either reading things into what politicians or officials are saying or making wild guesses of what they think will happen.
There is most likely going to be a need for another stimulus check if the economy doesn’t pick up fast enough. That’s in addition to the proposed second stimulus check that hasn’t been passed as of today. This point is missed by both Democrats and Republicans and it’s something both parties need to consider.
I generally avoid getting into partisan politics on my blog. I am not now, and have never been a member of any political party. That includes never registering with any party when I vote. I vote for the person, not the party. I also research the candidates before voting to make sure what they claim matches their voting records if they are currently in office.
I am not sure where the YouTubers get their information, but according to what I saw as a few minutes ago, this has not passed. What I saw is President Trump issued 1 or 4 executive orders yesterday. None of the executive orders included a second stimulus check. What they did include were Payroll Tax Cut, Enhanced Unemployment Benefit, Eviction and Foreclosure Crisis, and Student Loan Forgiveness deferment. Most YouTubers are saying it was 4 executive orders although a very limited number are saying it was 1 executive order and 3 memorandum issued.
I haven’t looked through the numerous YouTubers who claim a second stimulus check was approved, but I am not seeing anyone with proof it was approved. On Friday, the Democrats reduced their version of the HEROES Bill to $2 trillion and said the Republicans needed to accept this deal. What this ignores is the odds of needing another stimulus check if the economy doesn’t pick up fast enough.
I don’t know how the executive orders will play out from a legal standpoint, but at least someone in Washington is addressing some of the issues that weren’t resolved on Friday. I am sure some in Congress will try to challenge the executive orders. Hard to say how that will play out in the courts. Maybe this will loosen the gridlock Democrats and Republicans have drawn in the sand.
That’s not including some YouTubers that appear to have gone off the deep end and claimed even more outrageous claims about how much stimulus money has been approved.
