Trump Calls COVID Bill A Disgrace, Refuses To Sign It

The above transcript courtesy of Rev.

I agree with Trump. The bill is a disgrace and for more reasons than he mentioned. 

Airlines are a key example. $15 billion to airlines is a good example. For discussion, please see Airlines to Recall Thousands of Workers: What For?

However, it is also ridiculous to propose sending blanket checks of $2,000 or $4,000 for a couple to everyone. 

Trump concludes with a preposterous statement, in italics below.

I’m also asking Congress to immediately get rid of the wasteful and unnecessary items from this legislation and to send me a suitable bill or else the next administration will have to deliver a COVID relief package, and maybe that administration will be me, and we will get it done. Thank you very much.

No, president Trump the next administration will not be you for the simple reason you lost big.

My comments earlier today apply.

Slush Fund Revived

Please recall that Congress has been bickering over this since September. Yet, the best they could do is revive the blanket, untargeted checks and the slush fund in the original program dating back to March.

At least this time it's smaller. 

The ramifications, however, are unknown. Something in those 5593 pages is certain to bite in a big way

Will Congress Override or Will It Amend?

That's the key question now and I do not know.
