That's his plan after crushing private enterprise, closing tourism, failing to pay unemployment benefits timely, extending "no rent payments" for tenants, while not giving property owners any property tax breaks and now telling businesses that have been on the brink of closing they will be paying 4x more in UI taxes because his orders shut their businesses down in the first place.  What a travesty.  No leadership, no common sense and no vision.

They call us a "Welfare State" so now I guess we really are!  We have our hand stretched out too!  We just need a sign, "WILL WORK FOR FOOD!"

Spare change?  More like basing the State economy on hand outs.
