Now if I were @brcane1, I'd say the House is waiting until Friday to debate so Nancy Pelosi can selfishly celebrate her birthday today.

She's 80 years young today.

I remember when conservatives were against socialism for corporations and individuals like this McConnell bill. Some of us still are, but you Trumpists wouldn't know a political, or ethical for that matter, principle if it hit you in the face..

I'm no Trumpist and you're no conservative.

Social programs are not socialism. Nationalizing industries like student loans and healthcare are though.

If the government shuts down industries and then gives them cash to help them out, how is that socialism? It’s the government’s fault. It’s a forced shutdown.

Please go on with your lecture. I'm taking notes.

So, first question professor: what role should government play in lives of its citizens?

There is no such thing as "socialism for corporation," as true socialism involves the communal ownership of industry. But it sure as sh!t is not pure capitalism, either. Frankly, I don't really know what governmental or economic ideology the stimulus falls into, nor do I care. But it was necessary to stop the bleeding. Otherwise the layoffs would be far worse.

You can argue the particulars of the plan, fine. But the fact it passed the senate with relatively little rancor is a strong signal this was necessary.

There is a difference between socialism, and having a social safety net. I agree it’s a slippery slope as an increasing safety net added to the often proposed universal basic income would absolutely mirror socialism, but we’re not there yet.
