    I expect to read comments about the lazy people sitting at home and collecting the government dole.
    If the government forces people to stay home and away from work, which is a good thing, then they are obligated to provide those people the means to buy groceries and pay the electric bill.

    I am concerned about those who have been collecting unemployment or disability before the virus.Now they will get more money and stimulus check added to that. People who actually lost work as the result of the virus deserve it. The lazy wastes who have not worked for a while will not see much of a change in their lives because of COVID-19. They can vegetate at home and still make trips to Walmart and McDonald’s.

        Face it, if the military can’t find a job for 1/7th of our population, no company should want them either. It’s cheaper to pay them to stay out of the workforce that have complete idiots doing anything inside your company.

            Doesn’t matter how many times David Dennison F’s up, misleads, or blatantly lies. He’s still got his 40-44% base of MAGA support. That’s more depressing than the pandemic.
