The latest poll shows the Republican Senate candidates in Georgia both down by at least 5 Points each.

I get the feeling President Trump does not mind. He likes many Democratic proposals more than Republican proposals... especially when it comes to the generosity of spending to help US citizens.

Bernie Sanders is a prime example. Were it not for him, millions of self-employed Americans would not be receiving unemployment, due to receiving less Revenue because of the shutdowns.

President Trump appreciated Bernie putting that clause in the unemployment section of the covid-19 rescue bill back in March.

Republicans were angry at Bernie Sanders for doing so.

we debunked that yesterday in a another thread, and your link it says that it was for the National Defense Authorization Act.



CORRECTED: Amendment Added To The National Defense Authorization Act Which "Nullifies the President's use of the Insurrection Act." This Was Done To Remove Power From @realDonaldTrump In The Event There Are Election-Related Riots.


and trump vetoed the bill. now it goes back to congress and will need 2/3rds to override it. main reason for veto is section 230 was not revoked

For once, you and I agree on the substance of what Trump wants but it should be more still IMO.
$2500 a month tax free until the pandemic is over and backdated to when people got the $1200 stimulus check.
I don’t care where the money comes from, stop all spending on everything non-essential to take care of the people.
The pork in this bill is #ing outrageous.


This.
Other countries are doing the 2k a month thing.
That's to a normal families cost of living expenses.
Factor in food price hikes as well.

That is why I think 2k is bs.
The obvious ridiculous first off making you glad to get the one time 2k and forget other countries are doing it monthly.
It stinks of dirty sales tactics.

It is not like they are not going to get it back.

Where does all that money we spend end up?

Here in Ireland, a small country of about 5 million people, you get 350 euro's a week.
Thats roughly 400 dollars. A week. 1600 dollars a month.
Theres something very wrong in America



Did Ireland give billions of aid dollars to dozens of countries too?

You joking me?

We're not idiots. We're a small country. We do give aid to countries but not in the billions.
Even so, America should still be capable of looking after its citizens a lot better that a once off paltry $600

I would like for Trump to tell them to take those five thousand + pages of pork, and send them to the shredder.

Make them come back with a zero pork bill, that will start us back on the road of financial stability.


He did.

The point here is that it is not the American Taxpayers responsibility to give money to all these foreign countries. And fir stupid stuff. It’s so banal what our Congress people have been doing in our name and with our money ( which they print out of thin air making the value of the dollar go down. It’s a hidden tax. People should study G Edward Griffin on how it works.
Then there was the statement by another poster that other countries are giving 2000$ to their citizens every month. That is pure socialist bunk. It’s not free.... someone has to pay. It is not sustainable and America cannot afford it and should never entertain the thought. Plus the spending bill gives our money to illegals who just come here expecting free stuff. It is so outrageous.

i think that IF all the Pork to other nations/ pet-projects were not in the omnibus part of the 'relief' .... then Trump would not be outraged at the measly $600 --- and the covid relief might have sailed through the oval office

Trump is bluffing the $2k counter proposal to underscore just how stupid & insane the Omnibus-COVID Bill actually is to the legal American citizens


BRAVO POTUS 45

Psychopathic Trump might have another card up his sleeve to overcome the results of him losing in the general election.

That is: With him vetoing the Defense Authorization Act --- and furthermore...him possibly vetoing the latest stimulus bill --- Would cause absolute chaos and civil strife in the United States and elsewhere; which would give him ample reason to declare martial law and establish himself as dictator-in-chief --- Along with the total destruction of our democracy, by using his goon squads...such as the Department of Homeland Insecurity and his Proud Boys to enforce the possible fascist takeover of the United States.

Republicans Block Last-Minute Bid for $2,000 Stimulus Checks
GRINCHY


link


House Republicans have blocked a move, suggested by President Trump himself, to increase Americans’ stimulus checks to $2,000. Democrats introduced an amendment to the stimulus package Thursday morning, after the president called the previously agreed-upon $600 checks a “disgrace.” But Republican Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy blocked the amendment, setting up a scramble to secure a deal before funding runs out. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi called on Trump in a statement to bring the GOP in line before a full House vote on Monday. “If the President is serious about the $2,000 direct payments, he must call on House Republicans to end their obstruction,” she said.


As I posted the republicans always prevent the poor and mc from getting a fair share.

I bet they would happily give money to the rich

Yeah, it looks like Trump isn't really sincere here. He wants to punish his heretofore lackeys who weren't lackey enough.

Go ahead Trump wreck the republican party. Unfortunately, he gets his revenge at others' expense...typical selfish Trump actions.


He doesn't care about the millions of Americans who will lose unemployment Saturday as he goes to Marlago for Xmas.

They won't and haven't had much of a Xmas worrying about surviving.

Geraldo Rivera Lambastes Trump For Going On Holiday While Stimulus Bill Is In Limbo
link



Geraldo Rivera’s beef with Donald Trump continued to grow Wednesday as the Fox News host criticized the president for leaving the American people “adrift” over critical legislation while he jetted off to his Mar-a-Lago resort for the holidays.

“He’s threatening a veto. He’s gone on Christmas holiday. What the hell are we supposed to do now? The president has said this is no good. What about the defense authorization part of this? What about paying the military?” Rivera asked on Fox News’ “The Five.”

“We needed some leadership here,” he said, taking a swipe at Trump’s “farcical” comments Tuesday suggesting he might have a second term as he roasted the $900 billion coronavirus relief bill that Congress had just sent to the White House for his signature.

“More importantly, he’s the leader of the free world. Give us some guidance,” Rivera added.
