pretty funny that we're living in such upside down times of economic ideology that people are shocked the government handing out free money to people made the poverty rate go down

you, a capitalist pig dog: here are 10000 charts and graphs explaining how cutting the marginal tax rate will eventually trickle down and make everyone richer

me, an economics genius: just give people money lmao

@dankwraith the poverty rate is literally the lowest in the history of our country and it happened in the middle of an economically crippling pandemic and it was all because we just fucking gave people straight cash.

what a fucking concept

@dankwraith and they still say it’s the reason nobody wants to work lol

@dankwraith "if you make people not have poverty they won't have poverty"

@dankwraith my only beef with the EIP payments is they were basically landlord subsidy checks. If they were bigger, definitely.
