… Covid aid by country, in developed economies. As you can see, America is literally off the charts. If you’re lucky enough to be French, for example, you get up to 80% of your salary. Even Britain, which has botched its Covid response so badly it’s bred a new variant of Super Covid, has done far better at aid than America.
Ohhhhh, but Americans don't want to be "dependent on government!!!" It's lazy!!! It's unpatriotic!!! The Free Market and Your Own Sweat Is Supposed To Solve Everything!!!! If you don't believe that, you're a COMMUNIST!!!!!
THAT is why we have politicians that do this. BECAUSE WE ALL BELIEVE IN IT.
