  1. We need to do better as a country. Do you Joe!!!! Don’t wait, push your agenda. Make America greater for everyone!

    1. @mike briganti hahahahahah$$$$$$$$Sitting in the counting housers counting all her money Ha Ha Ha Ha

    2. @mike briganti Oh for heavens sake this is less control..more help for the people..now we pay more taxes to the elite and they pay less for the country.

    3. @katy bassett How about MORE stimulus money for us as we’re still trying to get out of the quicksand we’re sinking into.

    4. FRAUD WAS EVIDENT…WE BRAZILIANS BELIEVE IN JUSTICE, WE BELIEVE IN THE AMERICAN PEOPLE. WE ARE TRUMP.

  2. The Reaganomics era is finally coming to an end. Even if Biden doesn’t get his agenda passed it’s a very good start.

    1. @Bat Boy very true. That’s why talking about culture war issues are very effective on Republican voters. Talking policy isn’t a thing they do.

    2. @Donato Davis – The rise of Trump is pretty obvious when you consider the lessons provided from the rise of Nazism. When you have a very fearful group of people, you can convert that to blinding rage, and you can control them; and grow more of them. Just keep blaming “the other” for your difficulties in life. It’s not your fault. It’s very scary how this can occur, right in the USA. A land built by the diversity of many cultures.

  3. What is never talked about in the context of “small government” is the fact that the lack of spending for decades has resulted in the US falling behind every other first-world country in the context of infrastructure and healthcare (amongst other things). It’s one thing to say this is a big price tag, but it’s another to consider that it’s money that must be spent on/invested in a country that is falling apart. The whole trickle-down myth was just that…a myth. It’s time to revise that old story by investing in what matters.

    1. How about MORE stimulus money for us, when we’re still trying to get out of the quicksand we’re falling into?

    2. FRAUD WAS EVIDENT…WE BRAZILIANS BELIEVE IN JUSTICE, WE BELIEVE IN THE AMERICAN PEOPLE. WE ARE TRUMP.

  4. As some one who supported Bernie, i had no problem voting for Biden, and, my choice only seems better today. It is interesting how the media, all called Bernie’s ideas as radical and, unworkable when he proposed many of the items on Biden’s agenda, and, now they are becoming the mainstream. Bernie may have lost his battle for the presidency, but, he has won the war.

    1. FRAUD WAS EVIDENT…WE BRAZILIANS BELIEVE IN JUSTICE, WE BELIEVE IN THE AMERICAN PEOPLE. WE ARE TRUMP.

    2. @Antonio Nascimento Well bless your heart, you are welcome to him. Just a year ago, he was suggesting that we should drink bleach for covid. When Biden took over we were losing 4000 dead every day. But, of course you have your own homegrown version, so, you might have need of Trump.

    3. @Keith Kuckler Antonio is a troll. Sorry he’s annoying us. But his posts are being pulled.

    4. Bernie’s plans came from Hillary Clinton and Joe Biden. If you paid attention to Biden’s campaign, this is all stuff he planned to do and has been wanting to do even as VP.

  5. The Rethuglicans are no strangers to spending money. Ask the Rethuglicans how much they spent on the Bush Afghanistan and Iraq WARS?

  6. This American Family Plan will help millions of people obtain higher education, better jobs and help women place kids into childcare programs so we are able to afford to work. What a blessing!!

    1. @mike briganti Trump lost Chauvin guilty. You racist are having a bad year. Little Kyle Rittenhouse is up next hot dog water breath.

    2. Only benefits the country. You can’t travel to other countries for the next 5 years due to Covid19

  7. We are the only developed nation that doesn’t have guaranteed paid maternity/paternity leave. I don’t know how republicans can be against this, but for some reason they are. Lets get this done, and actually pass legislation that benefits the people who are not in the top 1%

    1. In general the republicans are not against this. They are against turning the country into what they call a “nanny” state, where everything is paid for by the government. There is well meaning on both sides about the “nanny” state. We already have a considerable part of the population who milk from government programs without contributing anything in return. Same way in every country. So how do you pick those programs which a lot of individuals approve of without going overboard in the total of them. As you know even a badly managed program that is widely taken advantage of is almost impossible to get rid of. This is a serious question that we must come to terms with as a nation.

  8. Restaurant workers don’t want to go back to work for Karens who don’t tip. In my state, a front of the house server makes $2.75/hr. When restaurants are at 50% capacity, a server needs to work a 10 hour shift to make it worthwhile. 10 hours waiting on Karens is not attractive

    1. @Seventy8 I hear you. It’s just that anyone who works should be given a livable salary…period! It’s obscene that in 2021 anyone would need to work more than one job just to survive. In what world is that right or moral? The government knows what a person/family needs to earn to survive. Begin with that as a base and go from there.

    2. How about MORE stimulus money for us as we’re still trying to get out of the quicksand we’re sinking into.

    3. $2.75? that is slavery. I would quit. and continue to smoke weed as I did, when I dropped out of High School.

    4. @SJisHere $2.75 is the hourly wage for tipped workers. In normal times, I make $50/hr in tips behind the bar which is worth it. But since restaurants & bars are at 50% capacity, and customers are banned from sitting at the bar, that kind of money isn’t possible.

  9. The changes that president said last night should have started earlier. We all have waited too long. Let’s make America great again and all things in America!

    1. How about MORE stimulus money for us as we’re still trying to get out of the quicksand we’re sinking into.

  10. A country that invests in itself is a country that grows. Just look at China. I just watched a video of them building a 19 story affordable and modern housing block in 5 days….I am worried about the cost but its only because we have failed for many many years to spend anything in the infrastructure and invest in the education of our populace… It just needs to happen. Its like a bill you don’t want to pay but its just time to pay it.

  11. Biden talked POLICY that will move America forward. Meanwhile the republicans are still engaged in culture wars. I know which group is making my life better.

    1. How about MORE stimulus money for us as we’re still trying to get out of the quicksand we’re sinking into.

    2. FRAUD WAS EVIDENT…WE BRAZILIANS BELIEVE IN JUSTICE, WE BELIEVE IN THE AMERICAN PEOPLE. WE ARE TRUMP.

  12. I was all in when he said about getting rid of trickle down economics. Tax the rich, invest in America. For real this time.

    1. @generation CRISIS America shouldn’t have to rely on the benevolence and charity from billionaires like they’re some kind of King or God bestowing us peasants with a reward. The success and prosperity of America is something that must be shared and not simply for a few people at the very top. Wealth is built from the bottom up.

    2. @DanNacht yeah that sounds like a Communist however american is a capitalist and as we know capitalist allways win

    3. @generation CRISIS you don’t understand Communism…what Dan described was Socialism, not Communism, and America is a Socialist Nation already. Medicare and Social Security are both programs that ensure America is a Socialist Nation as does subsidizing farms and energy producing businesses. Check it out sometime…Capitalism and Socialism are not mutually exclusive, Capitalism is Trade policy, Socialism is societal policy, Communism is the takeover of the nations economy and placing it under the control of a totalitarian Social government. Communists can still be Capitalists, ie. China is both a Communist and Capitalist nation. Communists can not be Fascists, because they are opposites on the Social order. Do some study and quit quoting talking points from talking heads.

    4. When you tax the rich where do you think that cost is going to TRICKLE down to. Are you that stupid.

    5. @generation CRISIS That’s ok , if she still does that as she can write off the contributions to charity anyway .

    1. FRAUD WAS EVIDENT…WE BRAZILIANS BELIEVE IN JUSTICE, WE BELIEVE IN THE AMERICAN PEOPLE. WE ARE TRUMP.

  13. In 1999 I watched my boss at MCI fire a woman for going into labor and having to leave early. Glad things are slowly changing.

  14. BRAVI. THE THREE RULES OF LIFE: 1) BE KIND. 2) BE KIND. 3) BE KIND. THANK YOU FOR THE INTEGRITY AND THE EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE BALANCE. NAMASTE.
