    we received 3 stimulus payments, they were sucked up by medical bills and mortgage within 3 mins of hitting my bank.

    If you want the ultimate, you've got to be willing to pay the ultimate price. It's not tragic to die doing what you love.

    Yeah I hear ya. I didn't qualify for it but thankfully I was able to get unemployment because I was out of work for almost 6 months. It didn't cover all my expenses either so basically I took a hit in terms of my savings and some of my investment portfolio. The studios I work for in Brooklyn and Queens halted production on basically every tv show going. Even finding freelance work was incredibly difficult.

    This is hilarious. Do conservatives really think people are still holding onto a few grand they got 16 months ago and prior?
    And this is who they want to give control of the country back to…ridiculous!

    That's how out of touch McConnell is. All the Republican posters on here love to talk about Biden blaming all the inflation on Russia but you won't hear a peep about this. And who is he to complain? His state has benefitted greatly from federal money for decades.

    For all the people who made better money in unemployment, there were plenty of people who didn't make what they were making working as well.
