Calling Sonny

POTUS says he’ll do unemployment extension by executive order if congress won’t.

USDA figured a way around the clear constitutional authority of Congress for financial appropriations so maybe they’d better go there.CCC !

Gonna be a big giggle after listening to people bitch about unemployment payments. When Trump figures out he can print it and put his name on the check they’ll get whiplash.

Re: Calling Sonny

On evictions, not sure he can interfere in private contracts except where Federal financing is involved which is a small percentage.

Guess if he can print the money by executive order he can print it to pay rents.

Gotta figure out how to let the grateful tenants know he sent their rent to their landlords.

An option if we can't get paddle-pops off her old lazy behind and do something.

Her House passed a sufficient Bill weeks ago. All Mitch has to do is get it passed across the hall and send it down the street to Dennison and he’s home free.

Executive can’t appropriate money unless they claim everybody’s a farmer.

House passed a bill weeks ago.

That would leave.......

I guess I need to clarify for some, a paddle-pops bill about covid-19 relief not bailing out poorly ran democrat cities and states, not a bill that the old hag knows won't get passed for political purposes.

Ed gets paid in rubles/post so it doesn’t need to make sense.

All the people you stiff in wagers would probably take payment in rubles at this point.

What part sailed over your head?

The liberals see all the executive power of the white house and really lick their chops.  You`d be surprised what can be done.

Administrative history[edit]

Under a provision in the Act, the Cost of Living Council was established as an independent agency. Its purpose was to stabilize prices, rent, wages and salaries higher than prices on or before May 25, 1970 and to execute phases II-IV of the Economic Stabilization Program set in place to ensure the success of this program. Phase I was the 90-day price and wage freeze that was authorized by Nixon, who delegated power to the Office of Emergency Preparedness, which acted as the fiduciary agency that monitored business practices. Phase II required the Cost of Living Council to engage in wage and price controls. Phase III required the council to enforce another price freeze to balance out economy. Phase IV was a "voluntary compliance and gradual decontrol;" the council had to ease off the businesses and relinquish some control. By April 30, 1974, the council was "abolished."[20]

Having the responsibility of chairman of first the Office of Economic Opportunity andthen the Cost of Living Council imposed on him, Donald Rumsfeld was initially unhappy with his position as chairman of the council and its "success" and, for a while, opposed its idea. He soon realized that his presence there would "be best" for his influence in both domestic and international commerce and appeared satisfied with the council prior to it being abolished in 1974.[21] Nixon reported that "public support and cooperation" was there for the council when it was making the tough decisions, and he also ensured the American people that the Cost of Living Council always "kept the public interest in mind."[22]
