That request started with the Dems in the House.

Look at the SOURCE.

Since everyone is fighting compromises may have been made just to get the GD thing to pass.

I agree with Grambler. There's a big question about disabled/elderly persons receiving Social Security getting any stimulus money but they're giving it to the Kennedy Art Center? Seriously?
This is a national emergency and now more than ever, Trump needs to stop bowing to Pelosi.


Democrats insisted that anyone with a social security number get the payment.

No.. blame both Democrats and Republicans for shoving their own agendas into the bill.

Democrats would have zero leverage to include anything if the Republicans weren't putting their own stuff in.

The real distraction is getting you to blame the Dems or someone else to blame the Republicans. We can't see tge corruption if we're still playing the right versus left game.


It’s no use

I tried

You td all the Dems vote

Trump and the republicans are helpless victims

I said we should demand answers to basic questions before giving the government a blank check solve solve this crisis because otherwise they would abuse the crisis for corrupt reasons

I was told only necessary measures would be taken and it was an emerges no need to demand questions be answered

Now we are at the point where of course irrelevant millions are being spent in pet projects, that was to be expected



Let me ask you this; Do you contact your representatives during processes like this to tell them what you think about their choices, or to let them know what you think before they vote on something? I do, all the time. I usually get canned responses back and when Sen. Stabenow does take the time to mail a response it's always - every single time - about a totally different subject. I finally asked her to stop responding to me if she wasn't willing to address my concerns. Shouting your feelings on a website doesn't affect your representatives' opinions whatsoever. They won't see it.

You folks should see what the corporations are getting. They say its as bad as the 2007-8 fiasco.

ONLY the rich corporations and banks were helped the people got NOTHING.

Her they get 4 months extended unemployment and one lump sum of 1200 bucks. That was only because the Dems demanded more for the poor and middle class.

Also, they demanded Trump his family and Congresspeople don't get bailed out.

False. The original Senate bill had $1200 per individual as well, and 3 months extended unemployment. Was that extra month really worth holding this up this long? It could've passed on Sunday. We'll be lucky if it's passes on Thursday now. That extra month could've been negotiated on its own another time. The more Democrats stall, the longer it'll take for people to get this money.

Read the bill for yourself...I left the link above.

Its a fact the Dems were fighting for more for the small guy. That's a fact.

Partisan bickering like this OP over helping people in the arts is BS.

Politicians don't care about us.

No politician gives a tinkers damn if we live or die.

As long as they have power and enough followers, the rest of us can rot in hell as far as they're concerned.

It's over.

The bad guys won, brah.

The bad guys won.


Yes, but seriously, just tonight a UK government official/ minister who appeared on, 'Newsnight' an analytical news programme, said for instance, Millions in the UK responded to an appeal for 250,000 helpers for the NHS.
The health department tonight has said that 450,000 have responded. The same person tried to back up the government claim that 12,000 ventilators were available, the health service says there are only 8,000, but also dodged on the question repeatedly put to him, that any extra ventilators would actually be available on 1st April...the government's claim.

It was totally embarassing.

What should be even more disgusting is that the bills drafters have managed to provide 30 million dollars for salary increases for members, their staff and to cover additional expenses they may encounter during the crisis. 25 million made available immediately with the additional 5 million in a fund to be accessed as needed. I cannot believe the absolute gall of these people. It truly disgust me, and it’s no longer Republican verse Democrats, if it ever was, it is We the People against a bunch of animals.

you sure think highly of yourself if you think you can change peoples opinions on a forum where no one is coming to debate, where everyone comes just to state their opinions and feelings. most have already made up their minds and aren't here for change. to say you tried is pretty humorous don't you think?

I believe you that the bill has $1200 for individuals and 4 months unemployment.

That doesn't change the fact that the original bill had $1200 for individuals and 3 months unemployment.

So do you have a real response to what I said? Was that extra month worth holding this up? Now it's looking like it won't get a vote in the House until Friday.

Now that's what I'm talking about



3 GOP Senators Are Stalling the Coronavirus Bailout Because They Think the Unemployment Benefits Are Too Generous


www.vice.com... erous



A trio of GOP senators, Ben Sasse of Nebraska and Lindsey Graham and Tim Scott of South Carolina, are threatening to delay the bill unless an expansion to unemployment insurance is tweaked to guarantee no one would get paid more if they’re laid off than what they made previously.

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) responded by promising to push for more restrictions on corporate bailout funds if they don’t back off.


Typical. The GOP Senators are frightened to death some poor people might get a few dollars more

I am not sure of the particulars (I have been trying to keep a news blackout for the most part due to it making me feel like an impotent ball of stress) but are these interest free loans or is this just giving money for the hell of it without any paying back over time?

I am okay with the loan thing..hell, I think getting an interest free loan if you have semi decent credit from gubment should be a thing just in general (considering thats what they do to most of us every paycheck)

It’s hilarious watching Republicans chastise Democrats for not voting for socialism.

Man certain parts of this timeline are funny.
