    Kennedy Center for the arts got like $1,500,000 in the last stimulus, and this one they’re going to get over 2 million MORE… and they’re not even open? Cancel the $ for all performing arts and give it to the American people.

    Trump has had to deal with these lying, double crossing, back biting, word playing, mephistopheles for the entire duration of his Presidency.

    I pray the GOP controlled senate, will get onboard and pass this much needed legislation … economic relief … for the people of this nation. But in my mind and heart, I know they will not.

    As always, republicans provide for the wealthy and corporations … relying on those groups to trinkle down crumps, to the less fortunate. They preach limited government spending, when it comes to the middle class and poor, no matter how hungry, homeless, or cold they may be.

    And, when you are unable to pay them their taxes, they take all you have left or imprison you, until you pay up. To them you are a deadbeat, looking for a handout, not a handup. SMH.

    Remember the 2 Democrats who voted against the $2000 payments…..Dan Lipinski-Illinois, voted against because of the deficit and Kurt Schrader-Oregon, voted against because he needed a more bipartisan bill. VOTE THEM OUT along with Senate Republicans!!!

    Easy, get rid of the stupid $300 boost to unemployment. It gives the lazy no incentive to work. Use the savings to give to the people OR give the $$ to small businesses.

    Trump tells the truth on our Covid Relief: 25 million to Pakistan’s Gender Equality.$86 million to Cambodia; $130 million to Nepal, $135 million to Burma, $453 million to Ukraine, $700 million to Sudan (to name a few) USA Citizens…$600 to cover your toilet paper/mask & sanitizer for last year! And seriously, why does the Smithsonian Museum need a BILLION right now?!

  49. 2345teeth Reply

    $30 Trillion in debt, currency rapidly losing value, but yes……keep printing that money so bums in New York and California can continue staying at home. Pretty soon it won’t be worth the paper it’s printed on. Enjoy the incoming high gas and grocery prices.

    GOP, denying desperate people this payment increase will be devastating to your party. If you block these $2,000 checks people will rally against you switching from Republican and Independent to Democrat out of spite. Look at the record-breaking turnout for Biden, things will get MUCH worse for the GOP if you’re responsible for preventing this extra $1,400 from reaching Americans.

    Having been laid off due to Covid I am here to say our family needs the $2,000 and not the $600. If the Senate does not approve this desperately need money our family will not vote for any current sitting Senator. I will share this with as many people as possible.
    All the “Covid Relief Bill” money going out of the United States is crushing to this American family.

    Republicans, yet again, voting against the interests of average Americans!!!

  71. Sheri Evans Reply

    Australia has been subsidising workers, $750/wk, via employers, encouraging businesses to keep staff engaged. Payments for the unemployed have been increased. Homeless have been housed in hotel accommodation to isolate them, which has also improved their overall health & wellbeing. It’s given the economy a boost, staved off a recession, improve the health of the most vulnerable. Testing is free, & widespread. Sydney had an outbreak of over a hundred positive cases in a beachside suburb, with isolation, & quarantine imposed, its down to just 5 new cases, in a city of 4 million. The trigger for the outbreak was traced to international flight crew members & consular staff flaunting isolation rules & recommendations – the virus strain detected was the same or similar to the UK strain. Lessons learned …. everyone needs to follow the rules, rules should apply to everyone, everyone, especially the weakest and poorest need to be cared for.

    Just what Americans need right now, Millionaire Politicians telling us what we need and should get. We are Americans, and again our elected officials have turned their backs on all of us. Every Senator, every Representative all get paid no matter what happens to us. But there is one thing they are not, they are not immune to the power of our VOTE. They all see how it was used on Trump, this will come back on them.
    Americans are Winners, these Losers or soon to be Losers just want to find the blame, but as Americans we will find the solution, that’s what real Americans do….
