From your links:


the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, D.C. and the House of Representatives would still each receive $25 million


What the freak does the House of reps need a bailout for? Did they empty out their sexual harassment fund already?

Senate rejects GOP attempt to change unemployment benefits in coronavirus stimulus bill




The Senate rejected an attempt by four Republican senators to change boosted unemployment benefits included in a mammoth coronavirus stimulus package.

Senators voted 48-48 on an amendment that would cap unemployment benefits at 100 percent of an individual's salary before they were laid off. Sixty votes were required for the amendment to pass.

GOP Sens. Ben Sasse (Neb.), Rick Scott (Fla.), Tim Scott (S.C.) and Lindsey Graham (S.C.) pushed for the changes to the coronavirus aid bill over concerns that the agreement struck by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin would "incentivize" individuals not to return to work.

These overpaid and underworked Senators who work three days a week are worried about a few dollars more for a few poor people getting a little more.

In many states, there will be workers asking to be laid-off, because the $24@hour (based on a 40 hour a week job) of tax-free unemployment benefits will be a pay raise..for at least 16 weeks.

So what is your grand plan then?

Your ideas on how to deal with the world economy right now?

Just waiting to listen to your peals of knowledge on how you would fix it.

Maybe a youtube video explaining it?




Well here is how i would start.

Start demanding answers to basic questions from the government before the take these radical authoritarian socialists policies, and stop criticizing people that are demanding answers to those questions.



You are on ATS yelling at us bro, you arent demanding answers. This soap box you have been standing on the last 2 weeks got so tall you forgot where you were.

ANYONE SURPRISED?

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) expressed outrage on Thursday that the cash payment portion of the economic relief package, which the Senate unanimously passed Wednesday night, does not extend to noncitizens.

AOC wants criminals who have not paid U.S. Federal Income Taxes to receive $1,200 of OUR money.

Did she win her Congressional seat honestly? Hard to believe sane people would vote for her.

Sometimes it's cheaper to stay home.

It's interesting, but not surprising that CNN and MSNBC are totally ignoring the fact that the US House passed the consumer stimulus package this afternoon.

Fox News devoted the first 10 minutes at the top of the hour, and MSNBC and CNN still have not talked about it.... just more sky is falling fear-mongering from those two.

If someone owes back taxes do they still get the stimulus check?

(CNN)Millions of workers aren't getting any help from the largest emergency aid deal in US history. When stimulus checks start going out across the country, undocumented immigrants won't be receiving them. That's not a surprise. They aren't eligible for most federal benefits. But immigrant rights advocates say leaving this group out of the $2 trillion plan isn't merely a matter of dollars and cents, and it isn't something that only affects undocumented workers and their families. It's a dangerous decision, they argue, that puts the whole country's health at risk as the novel coronavirus spreads. Critics counter that it's not the US government's place to bankroll someone who broke the law, and that as unemployment skyrockets, American workers should come first.
so not surprised this is what cnn chose to complain about but here we are

The president just signed be approved consumer assistance Bill, and only Fox News covered it.

Tweet from president Trump. mobile.twitter.com...


The liberal media is not even covering the daily White House update to Americans today.

Showing callous disregard for Americans on two fronts at the same time.

Try getting your groceries without them. They pay into the system while they are here. They pay rent, they buy stuff and they pay taxes.
They are also out of work.
Oh I know.... I know...

And how long will $1000 last?

All bills should be suspended for 2 month.

And those 2 suspended months will be tricked into future payments.

Give people the piece of mind that they only need to worry about food and what ever necessities for 2 months.

I work in a warehouse which is an essential job. Grocery store workers are essential, convenience store workers are essential, and many other low income jobs are essential. If the government is passing out an extra 600 a week for unemployed people (my state unemployment is 265 plus the 600 is 865) what are the essential workers, the workers out here taking on the most risk for ourselves and our families, not at least getting the extra 600. I work a hard 45+ hours a week. My workload has doubled due to this virus, yet I make under 400 a week. If my job and so many others are essential to keep the country going, then why are we not being paid like we are essential.

Obviously there is a bigger picture here we are being kept in the dark about.

They keep mentioning this is a war...

And today's wars a rarely fought with guns.

The a fought with sanctions, tariffs, supporting anti government group, pushing refugees into other countires.

This is how countries mess with one another these days.

Was this an attack?

And attack by the world leaders to clean up a little.

Unleash a virus, elites already have a vaccine.
