Democrats continue to fold their arms with their lips out. They put politics over resolve and compromise. A payroll tax cut makes HUGE SENSE. Putting money back in everyone's pocket, giving a real boost to the economy in one of the most uncertain times in recent history.

100 million in food assistance is fine by me but a billion? Out of that billion only a million or so would be used for what it's intended for is my guess and is why they're asking for so much $$

Seems like it would be reversed. 5 million for food assistance and 1 billion for sick leave and you may not need it all.

Ahhhh..so refreshing seeing the congress working like it should..debating the issues that face america,with intention for resolutions that are solutions, as opposed to total focus on removing Our duly elected president…for those thinking taking the time necessary to do it right,do not forget,it is our money they are spending,and 8 billion has already been approved to deal with covid now..debating further needs is no delay ,it is proper due dilligence..at last..too bad it took a pandemic to get them to actally do the job they were elected to do..

No one 18 – 49 can get SNAP w/o work 1st of 20wk/80mthly in community workforce programs ! "Illegal aliens" can't & won't do that , but they will have more anchor brats & baby momma's that will " Qualify " beyond the $194 a month Now !!!

Pelosi is always willing to put poison pills into bills that we the people pay for because they don’t care. I’m sure the dems are very happy this is happening and as they say why let a good crisis go to waste. Let’s see who and how much richer certain people get. I’ll do my best to watch both sides because there’s enough corruption in both sides it’s a disgrace

The Fed just announced it will inject $1.5 TRILLION to help stocks. Also, the Fed is expected to lower interest rate to ZERO.

Ain't the free market great? "No bailout for us Republicans, we're rugged individualists who don't accept handouts."

LMAO!

Now, what were you MAGATs saying about Obama's "quantitative easing"? What were you saying about "socialism"?

Hope you enjoyed your MAGA moment in history because it's all about to end. Your con man cult leader has been exposed for the fraud that he's always been.

P.S. How's your 401k doing? Might be a good time to stockpile some "clean beautiful coal."

I could see food assistance being good if it were some kind of bring it to your door service. Paid sick leave sounds good, our work systems are kind of messed up when it comes to this. Must be some of the other things are questionable, or it is the way they propose getting these things done. Implementation details are really important, it can completely make or break an idea.

Oh yeah that’s just what we need.. more money given to the government. Big surprise Dems not wanting to give the american people a dime.

Those programs are already funded. So they want us to spend every cent we have, loose everything we’re paying for and stand in line waiting on our government handouts. Knowing full well so many people have fought and struggled to free themselves from dependency on the government. Once those people are forced to go back down they might just give up. DEMs are pushing communism so hard it’s sickening.
