    1. George republicans-“don’t vote for the republicans on the Jan 5 run off , don’t give these republicans candidates your votes” this is the head of the Republicans saying this maybe listen? The election has been decided already , maybe vote for the winning president and winning team the democrats , or maybe don’t vote “stop the steal” is real we need gop to act to help Americans suffering from the covid19 pandemic

  1. That’s why I am not shopping and spending my hard earn income. Screw the economy. Let the rich spend their millions.

  2. If it takes 7 months for them to do nothing to help Americans, what would make anyone believe that there would be help. They never cared period.

    1. @David Jimenez it’s all of them not just Mitch. Nancy stall negotiations because she didn’t want to give Trump an election, all these politicians are still getting their paychecks, they’re still allowed to take their recesses like it’s a normal business day. This is the fault of the people you elected PERIOD

  3. No one is mad yet? We need to band together and fight back these politicians don’t care because their is no pressure on them. People wake up you’ve paid in to this system and their shunning you. Wake up their still getting paid by our dollars yet they’ve shut us out. #enoughisenough

    1. Orlando Garcia, you are correct. People need to flood the email and phone lines of Mitch, Loeffler and Perdue as well as the WH. Mitch thinks he is staying in power and unless he feels the shaking, he will continue to stall. Loeffler and Perdue can put pressure on Mitch too, especially if people in GA contact them. Take care and stay safe,

    2. Fight back people do it for the babies tiny tots can’t play with toys familes don’t have know job, or money for Christmas it’s grim

    1. Time for Moscow Mitch to go George republicans-“don’t vote for the republicans on the Jan 5 run off , don’t give these republicans candidates your votes” this is the head of the Republicans saying this maybe listen? The election has been decided already , maybe vote for the winning president and winning team the democrats , or maybe don’t vote “stop the steal” is real we need gop to act to help Americans suffering from the covid19 pandemic

    1. mm hmm…all the small business people i’ve ever known are republicans who don’t want to pay taxes or benefits or give full time jobs.

  4. Yes we need the checks ASAP now so please sign it to get them out pittsburgh pa will shut down at Friday night at 12:05 a.m.

  5. The People sent back mitch mcconnell. Half of ppl voted for trump. The ppl left repub senate. I can only assume they wanted this.

    1. THEY ALL DO. Pelosi is worth 100+ million dollars. Its not just the republicans its all of them. They all get handouts from corps they are all well worth millions of dollars and all of it was made in office reguardless what they say. We live in some weird monarch capitalistic society idk what the proper term is but it feels like that when it shouldnt
