Republican and Democrat politicians, plus the Media brain trust, are missing the catastrophe coming from the $600-a-week Covid-19 unemployment compensation supplemental benefit for all 50 states. In the ivory tower of statistic worship and technocratic analysis, the supplement makes sense. When millions lose jobs, unemployment insurance only covers about $400 average per week.

You can't pay off a $300,000 student debt load with jobs in a butcher shop or unloading trucks at a big box store. Those wages won't even cover the interest due.
