    That's not what worked in Germany after the war, Adenauer and Erhard went for improving the material conditions of the working people and reducing inequalities as the way to forge new social contracts and to lessen the influence of far-right ideologies.

    Sure, Germans hanged treasonous fuckers of comparable roles to Steve Bannon and Josh Hawley and Ted Cruz and Stephen Miller, but that was only part of it.
    acket.

    Loving the Republicans complaining about how many Executive Orders President Biden is signing. They were'nt saying shit when Trump was signing his, and they aren't self aware enough to realise that all the EO signing is because they are fucking up the parliamentary system. And of course the fucking media just parrots them instead of asking, "well, what is your part in the inability of the government to function, and what are you going to do about it?"


    *I know it's not parliamentary, but I just can't think of the right word right now.

    Speaking of which... the stimulus check to Americans, Sanders is saying we could send these checks right away thru budget reconciliation, no need to worry about them fucking republicans, but Biden seem to think we need further negotiations, not sure with who... and Americans likely won’t see that check til March...

    Do you know what Biden and the dems are waiting for?

    It's a presidential system.

    The executive says what, the legislative says how.
    acket.

    Probably the red tape and bureaucracy that Trump said he'd get rid of when he drained the swamp.

    Fuck Trump and republicans. This is an emergency, dems have majority, budget reconciliation requires Simple majority, which we have. Dems don’t need to negotiate with anybody. Just give the chks to all Americans. Those in need, even if they’re republicans, they’ll thank you.

    Those rich Americans who don’t need the money, we can always tax that money back.

    I really don’t understand why is negotiating necessary. Am I missing something?

    Part of the fun is that a lot of Trump's nonsense is so easily overturned because it was just executive action, it wasn't actual legislation.

    But yes, ignore Republicans upset over Biden's use of the EO. Trump used more per year than anyone since Carter (and yes, I'm also surprised that Carter was a prolific user of the EO): https://www.presidency.ucsb.edu/stat...ecutive-orders
