Wow. Didn’t set up some major announcement and just signed the bill when it came across.

I forgot what competence looks like.

And not a single Republican supported this life-saving and economy-saving measure.

Sad!

But the billboards write themselves…

Can’t even find the photo op. Just went and did it.

Ah, I see from the article there will still be a photo op ceremony on Friday. But the bill is law as of an hour ago.

At some point, the GQP will claim that the Trump presidency was a “false flag operation”.

Good. I was hoping for a WH ceremony. Speech tonight, ceremony tomorrow, own the weekend.

They won’t know what hit them.

What, the lifelong abortionist Democrat who was close enough friends with the Clintons that he attended Chelsea’s wedding?

No way it was all a false-flag operation.

Naw. He’s been waiting for this moment for decades. Let him enjoy his time playing president while the real president is off golfing at Mar-a-GoGo.

Hoping that in another 3 weeks or so, we can smother Twitter with “how it started/how it’s going” memes of safer Easter celebrations. :crossed_fingers:

Fuck no. He might play golf or something. Unless it’s golf with Lindseymat, that could be productive.

Dagnabbit! I read earlier this week that if you have your taxes done for this year before the bill was signed then they’ll use your 2020 numbers, otherwise they’ll be using the 2019 numbers. Now, my income dropped a bit last year, so this sort of governmental efficiency is going to cost me a few dollars, how dare he!

Perhaps he’ll even do a signing photo op to coincide with its release.

If it was structured the same as the last round, then when you file your 2021 taxes, you’ll get the rest of it if your income went down from 2019-2020.
