basically making the dollar worthless, brilliant move
The US is a net exporter and would benefit from a lower dollar (the cheaper the dollar is, the cheaper and more attractive American goods and services are - itís like giving Netflix users outside the US a discount). We criticize China for manipulating their currency to artificially devalue it by not allowing it to be traded outside China.

It also makes living in the US more expensive so it's not always great.

True, especially for those of us who travel frequently.

And typically Form 1040 filing is opened in the beginning of February so we're a month off. Not too bad.....

By that time the Biden administration will probably have added like another 3 stimulus bills. If Kamala had her way, we'd be getting 2k a month per person (a couple with 3 children would rake in 10K - assuming they had less than 100k income).
Harris/Biden should just appoint Yang as the Stimulus Czar.

And anyway now we have Sen. Manchin saying he won't vote for it.
Quickly retracted and claimed he only meant it isn't the first priority. He's apparently pretty quick to

There is no way to predict what the future will bring. For all I know they'll pass $1k/mo until vaccines are available.

""Trump put his name on checks worth $1,200, and Democrats could be at risk here of appearing to offer way less help in a way, and in a way that nobody notices,Ē Bruenig said."


It's always about appearances for them.

I'm not who you think I am.

I'm afraid we're heading there real quick, too quick. The "Founding Fathers" must be turning in their graves (for so many reasons!!)
