And this is why:
ďAnd now I find that some of my Republican colleagues are very distressed, theyíre very upset that somebody whoís making 10, 12 bucks an hour might end up with a paycheck for four months more than they received last week,Ē said Sanders, waving his arms and pointing at his colleagues as he launched into a fiery speech on the Senate floor on Wednesday night.
"Oh my god, the universe is collapsing. Imagine that. Somebody's making $12 an hour, now like the rest of us faces an unprecedented economic crisis with the $600 on top of their regular unemployment check, might be making a few bucks more for four months.
"Oh my word, will the universe survive? How absurd and wrong is that? What kind of value system is that?"
They're not making, ie. earning, a few bucks more, Bernie, they're being given a few bucks more. Why? For what? Why not cap it at what they would normally make?
I'm still working, from home, but still doing my job. Should I be receiving overtime pay, Bernie, time and a half?
People are sick of politicians, and me, I hate cats in the house.
