Years ago, I had a manager who would deliberately wreck the schedule early in the project (not approving plans or allocating resources/budgets usually) only to swoop in at a later date and very publicly save the project. This manager often got a reward from the company at a company-wide meeting for being invaluable. It was infuriating.
I bring this up because Lord Damp Nut is pulling the same con: Months after Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats passed a $3T Amero emergency relief bill, the 4th Reich (and their Republican enablers) continue to oppose any relief to America. The White House pulled the plug on legislative negotiations Friday (FROM HIS EFF’ING GOLF CLUB, no less!), and claimed that Prznint Stupid can provide relief unilaterally:
Any unilateral action that Prznint Stupid takes to extend emergency unemployment insurance, cut payroll taxes, and/or spend Ameros Congress hasn’t authorized would almost certainly illegal.
Prznint Stupid might be able to defer payroll tax collection, but he can’t override the law which requires employers’ to withhold taxes from worker paychecks. This means that employees would not get extra cash in their pockets, and if they did, they’d have to pay it all back to the government. It’s a con.
Prznint Stupid is openly toying with breaking the law to send money to voters he ahead of the election, that they will then have to return in taxes next year. And it does absolutely nothing to help the 30M+ unemployed Americans.
