In an interview on Friday with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on HBO’s Real Time, host Bill Maher expressed concern about the amount of money the government is spending due to the coronavirus pandemic and stated, “It seems like it’s a house of cards that could, in the end, wind up hurting more people than the disease.”
“I don’t know how you can just keep indefinitely writing checks,” Maher said. “We were 20 trillion in the hole to begin with. And all world governments, who are already in debt, are doing this. How can the whole world be writing this funny money?”
After Pelosi said that greater investments in science and health will help the economy recover, Maher stated, “Well, it will recover unless people get wise to the fact that we’re just writing checks for money that doesn’t exist… It seems like it’s a house of cards that could, in the end, wind up hurting more people than the disease.”
Not to mention the economic devastation caused by extended lockdowns being ordered by petty tyrants in Democrat-led urban centers across America.
