It's pretty funny and accurate, under the current fiscal policies the U.S.
is living under. But those policies are so out-of-whack that debating
$600/week vs. $200/week amounts to rearranging deck chairs on the Titanic.
$260 billion of the $2.2 trillion CARES act was this unemployment
insurance. A measly $500 billion spent toward pandemic preparation could
have saved many more lives and jobs. We're a country run by crooks and
morons. Until we fix that there's no point bickering about how much
unemployment insurance we provide.
