Has Congress Lost its Mind? $2,000 Stimulus vs War with Korea
Published – May 1, 2020 3:16 pm
Remember the Emergency Money for the People’s Act (EMPA). That offered a potential $2,000 per month for those over 16 years old.
It was a clean, simple bill and looked great. Unfortunately Rep. Khanna just introduced a bill: the No Unconstitutional War with North Korea Act. And look, Korea is something to be concerned about: especially with Kim Jung Un’s uncertain health leaving a potential hegemonic power vacuum in the region. And keep in mind, the President can for 60 days go to war with a country via the War Powers Act.
This bill basically strips that power. And here’s what’s frustrating about that: This bill, cosponsored by Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren, is a distract – we should be focusing on stimulus! Not this speculative drama.
