This could cause a huge divide within the GOP…
According to the Gateway Pundit, Republican Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY) is now threatening President Trump to hold up the $2 trillion coronavirus stimulus bill.
Just yesterday, Massie tweeted:
$2 trillion (Congress)
+$4 trillion (Fed & Treasury)
$6 trillion stimulus
$6 trillion divided by 350 million citizens = $17,000 per citizen
times a family of 4
=$68,000 per family of new national debt and dollar devaluation in this stimulus.
not a good deal

“If it were just about helping people to get more unemployment (benefits) to get through this calamity that, frankly, the governors have wrought on the people, then I could be for it,” Massie said.
“But this is $2 trillion,” he added. “Divide $2 trillion by 350 million people — it’s almost $6,000 for every man, woman and child. I’m talking about spending. This won’t go to the men, women and children. So if you have a family of five, this spending bill represents $30,000 of additional U.S. national debt because there is no plan to pay for it.”
