In the history of mankind, many republics have risen, have flourished for a less or greater time, and then have fallen because their citizens lost the power of governing themselves and thereby of governing their state. TR


Trump Considering New Round of Stimulus Checks

According to the Washington Post:

White House economic adviser Kevin Hassett said Tuesday that the Trump administration is “studying very carefully” the possibility of another round of stimulus checks beyond the one-time $1,200 payments sent to many Americans.

“I think that that’s something we’re studying very carefully that I know that people in the House are as well,” he said. “I expect that it’s very likely there will be a Phase 4 deal, and we’re going to be speaking with the president throughout the week about what he thinks should be in there.”

Hassett said that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) are also looking at the possibility of additional direct payments to Americans.
