The government can give you money, but it can't make you toilet paper


Congress can pass legislation and give you $1,200, but Congress can't give you a pork chop.  Congress does not have any special ability to make it possible for you to turn money it gives you into a pork chop.  Producing a pork chop at a minimum requires a farmer and employees to raise a pig, a truck-driver to transport the pig to a processing plant, owners and workers at a processing plant, then another truck-driver to transport the processed pig to a grocery store and then finally a grocer and employees to sell the resulting pork chop to you.  This does not even consider any workers involved in producing any machine, such as a truck, used in the pork chop supply chain.  So, again, Congress can give you money, but if the supply chain breaks down at any point, legislators cannot make it so you can turn that money into a pork chop.      ........
