I wouldn't say that the gop bill is ideal but the bull # the dems are trying to add are even worse...

Airline carbon...
Diversity hires over qualifications...
Voter rules changed...

What the absolute #...

They all need to hang.

• Corporate stock buyback language, that can be waived by the Treasury Secretary, is weak to say the least!


That helps millions of middle class 401k and pensioners.

Shrinking the supply price goes up.

And so do their accounts.




The bill includes a $500,000,000,000.00 corporate slush fund with little regulation or restriction, while leaving workers, families and children in the background.


Also helps middle class.

People would have jobs to go back to.

It's not passing with those conditions and there are a lot more than the ones the OP listed. One is companies that take money have to hire more blacks and minorities not based on merit. There will also be a Government team established to make sure companies are fully enforcing it for 5 years.

Total nonsense and nothing to do with anything. Basically a soft takeover of companies. They want them run just like government agencies. Quality, efficiency and innovation will decline. I hope no companies take the money. Just file for bankruptcy if it comes to that point. Still get bailed out without strings attached.

As for the student loan debt, look who is on the frontline right now; National Guard. They can join the National Guard if they want their student loans paid off and free tuition and taxpayers get something out of it.


PLEASE give me a link to the stuff I left out! I would really like a more complete list!

THIS is what Trump meant when he said that the cure could be worse than the disease.

DO NOT SIGN THIS!

This bill, "SHALL NOT PASS!"

Its extremely disappointing that this Bull# continually happens on both sides and has for years. It is an absolute disgrace that these people cannot just vote on one important item at a time but keep pushing this crap through.

While I do not always agree with President Trump he is stuck between a rock and a hard place because whatever decision he makes it will be scorned regardless of the result and is not a job I would wish on anyone. These people have a chance to help people and they continually play politics. All of them need to go next election cycle. I know I am not voting for anyone that is currently in office at the house or senate level.

Trump needs the line item veto. Only way we're going to get any help.

So your OK with that $500 billion “Exchange Stabilization Fund” AKA slush fund that the most corrupt president in history will be the one overseeing it and deciding who gets it. There is nothing stopping him from awarding his own company billions of dollars.

Not sure who would want Trump to be in charge of something like that.


This is the stupidest thing I have ever read on ATS this year

Period...

If it passes he should veto it and get on the air reading off the BS that was included by the democrats and explain why it could not pass in this form because of the handcuffs it would place on recovery then kick it back to congress and hold a press conference every day explaining who and why things are being held up, highlighting the dems playing politics with the relief bill because none of their wish list could pass on its own merits.

She is an evil, vindictive, old, self-serving hag. Everything she does is for the benefit of her base and party. She could care less about he common folk or their issues during this crisis. There is nothing she has put in the bill to help with the virus. Once again showing she is putting politics over peoples lives. This has to stop. Put the things in needed to get the country running again nothing else. Her proposal is a 1400 page document. It should be one page and it should say "Help the American people, medically and financially. People wont forget this kind of behavior.


Hate to say...but you described Trump pretty spot on in the 1st sentence.
"...is an evil, vindictive, old, self-serving...."

If the shoe fits

Why? You don't think it's true? Trump said that he would oversee the fund, and he also said that his companies deserved bailouts because being president has cost him billions of dollars, especially in legal fees.

I find nothing evil,vindictive,old,self serving about Trump calling out the lefts 2.5 Trillion 'Mockulus' Bill.

therightscoop.com...

Especially after the last three years of lies,witch hunts, and treasonous coups called impeachments.

D's are only looking out for themselves, and their GD power.

Meanwhile behind the curtain of the "human malware virus", Lyndsey Graham and Richard Bloomenthal are trying to get the Draconian "Earn It Bill" pushed thru!

I hope neither version passes.

Glad all the politicians are showing themselves for what they are.

Democrats are proving to exploit a dire situation for political agendas that otherwise wouldn't pass.

Republicans proving (again) to be sellouts and big spenders.

I don't want an record setting spending right now. And no, you can't buy me for 1,200 dollars. I can make that without screwing my countries future.

I’m laid off as a result of the Chinese Coronavirus and was told by my employer to file for unemployment after I get my final paycheck.
I say no to a pork filled,left wing, democratic socialist bill!

I will take my hits and rough it without a relief package for the good of the country.
Pelosi and her ilk are putting their self interests first instead of those of the hard working American citizens of this country.


Must be nice to put bills and groceries aside for the sake of being a self sufficient patriot. Some of us aren't so privileged but just keep thinking about your pride, it's cool.

Maybe you should send that comment to Pelosi?

Isn’t she the one thinking about her pride, trying to shove BS down our throats that has nothing to do with the current situation?

We should have a one bill one focus law that ensures that nothing that doesn’t directly pertain to one specific matter can ever be shoved through on the back of another matter in order to reach some compromise that wastes even more tax payer money.

Our system is a joke and Pelosi is making a fool of herself at the expense of the people.

THIS is the stupidest thing you've read on ATS? Holy crap man. You need to read more.

No way should ANYONE get a $500B slush fund without any oversight or transparency. We learned that the hard way in 2007-2008
