Just when you thought that, as a good American suffering through the current pandemic crisis, you’d get a little relief financially from President Trump’s stimulus package, Nancy Pelosi has once again become the fly in your arthritis ointment.
Working overnight under the cover of darkness to pass HB 1137, Pelosi and her Democratic Congress have seen fit to take 20% of YOUR money as a “processing fee.” For so many people, it’s remeniscient of finding that near mint copy of the Hustler issue that featured Melania Trump in a small amateur spread in the “Beaver Hunt” section for only 20 dollars on EBay, and then finding out the seller is charging a “postage and handling” fee of eight bucks. That’s just douchey.
Since much of the Trump base of voters view mathematics in the same way that a blind man views a kaleidoscope, Pelosi has had Joe Barron from the office of teabagging translation explain the result of this fee for the average potato : If your check is for $1000, 20 percent of that is $200. 1000 minus 200 is an end result of $800. Sure, that sucks, but most of the President’s loyal slobber monkeys should still be able to afford installing a new tape deck in the riding mower.
The Speaker has been mum on where these fees will be applied, but insiders have revealed that accounts have been opened recently by Pelosi’s accounting firm, reportedly to collect funds intended to make the Gulping Grandma the owner of her own vodka manufacturing company. Cheers, America.
