Trump adviser Kudlow says administration is looking ‘very carefully’ at a ‘return-to-work bonus’

Trump administration signals interest in Republican Sen. Rob Portman’s proposal of providing $450 a week for individuals returning to work

The line above came Tuesday from top White House economist Larry Kudlow, as he talked with Fox Newsabout the Trump administration’s interest in Sen. Rob Portman’s proposal of providing $450 a week for individuals returning to work.

“Sen. Portman has a good idea. He understands incentives and disincentives,” Kudlow said, adding that the CARES Act’s $600 supplemental unemployment benefit may have been needed initially, but it’s now a “major disincentive to go back to work.”

Wow! I just wish I had my same job to go back to.

So, first I get fucked by not getting paid to stay home and watch tv, now I’ll get fucked by not getting a bonus because I can’t return to something I never left? How does this make any sense?

How about they just stop the unemployment bonus and everyone get their asses back to work?

an *incentive* to go back to work?   What twilight zone did I step into where Trump ends up to the left of AOC and Rashida Thlaib?

I’ll take it; may as well before the Democrats go full retard and give it to illegals. The wife’s small business tanked because of the virus and we didn’t managed to get those SBA grants.

What about my “worked the entire time” check?

I’m gonna need at least $800 per week Don Don...sign it motherfucker!

What if you are still working, do you get a $450 weekly bump?

While my job is remote and still intact, my home gym that I’ve trained, fought and lived out of the last 15 yrs has closed its doors. It’s hard to even take its measure. Meanwhile, it’s cool for scores of ppl to congregate outside of Walmart in lines. Incompetent beaurocrats, the lot of them.

Someone in the Trump administration became very concerned after reading the Passive Jay unemployment thread.
