More “stimulus” for union construction workers I take it?

the schools already babysit em, feed em, entertain em, indoctrinate em
now they’re gonna poke prod and medicate em
Just add some beds and showers and the kids never have to go home at all
The ONLY way to stop the squandering of this country’s wealth is to STOP paying taxes. No other way short of CW11.
