#1 Guess what, most networks failed to report this. Historic activity. This man is a machine. Democrats and media will have to order more adult diapers for their faces and hind parts.

#2 I'm not a fan of the payroll tax deferral; that means a delay in payment and nothing more.

#3 I can dig The Donald sticking it to the Dems, but what good is a deferral with millions unemployed? Getting rid of the tax once and for all anyway.

#4 #2 Deferral now, forgiveness in Nov - if the right people win the election?

#5 #3 It encourages people to find work?

#6 It’s a 10-22% raise for workers. It puts cash in the hand of the voter, not a politician.
I expect either party will have the spine to not forgive the tax.
I cut my own payroll. My staff will see the money 8/15. With a note explaining the origin and terms of the cut. I feel sure they will spend the money wisely.

#7 the downside here is that much of this all is almost certainly unconstitutional (the eviction moratorium is certainly legal, however)

interesting follow up

1. who has standing to challenge this in court

2. will they do it

3. if they do, how soon will court act

#8 /\ "...almost certainly unconstitutional..."

Agree 100%.

#9 Trump moved forward when he reviewed his legal options with appropriate staff. He doesn't move haphazardly. This is well thought out. The Democrats are totally outclassed. Now what is next. Believe me he is rolling on.

#10 So what will the Democrats do, impeach, sue. They have lost already.

#11 What will the Democrats do? Probably go on to another concocted 'crisis'. Time for the MSM to get their story straight.

#12 It does look like Trump can cancel this deferred tax (Twitchy link). Covering all the bases - nice...

#13 Chucky and Nancy were squealing like stuck pigs this morning on the MSM.

They must be really worried.

#14 House Speaker Nancy Pelosi blasted the four executive orders signed by President Trump for financial relief because of the coronavirus pandemic as “unconstitutional slop.”

I am very impressed, Madam Speaker! With Trump, that is.

Law passed in 1997, Pres. Clinton, with a (R) congress, Speaker Newt Gingrich. [giggle]

#17 Don't like it? Impeach the m.f.! Again. And get your collective a$$ handed to you. Again.

#18 And I love watching Nancy and her sidekick Schumer stomp their little feet.
