  1. Why don’t Americans have affordable healthcare, education and housing like they did in 1950s ?
    … .

    • @Tom Phillips to be fair America didn’t start that war but the tragic loss of life did change the world in general.

      What changed is the capitalism and communism plot that is beaten is like a dead horse, but was a great excuse to protect and create trusts that are now corporations that can drastically effect people almost as much as the government can. Basically we allowed money to gather to the smallest percentage of people but say they are to important/big to fail piling incentives and bailouts and tax cuts with little accountability as they cut jobs anyway to max out profits. While us majority who don’t have 1 mil salaries or greater are told to pull ourselves out by our boot straps and telling us stuff like social security is unsustainable while staying hush about how they knee cap these programs by raiding the fund pool long ago and claiming that it is not an investment but a lottery system. And we eat it all up.

      Because the WW2 generation is gone, and now we have their spoiled selfish children in charge of our horribly corrupt government. Healthcare is the biggest money scam industry in our country, and the corporations will never let us have it with the GOP still in congress.

    • @Eddapults Tab Just remember that every Wall St. firm supported Hillart and now Biden for the presidency. And you should be able to kind of see how people could use anti-communism to further one’s ideals. Communism was the the backdrop for some of the worst regimes , creating some the worst atrocities in human history. The idea now for half the country is to be socialist instead of reforming corporate tax loopholes and making common sense adjustments to benefit the middle class, secure the border, stop overseas spending, and bring down the budget.

    • Because Reagan convinced everyone trickle down economics would make them rich, when it just made the rich even richer

    • @Tom Phillips yeah, Hillary always bowed out when money is thrown at her, like the drug industries, thats why I did not vote for her.

    Probably more stuff for the rich to get richer

    Mitch McConnell got to go!!!! It’s shameful it took this long, to give Americans their own money!!!

    • @Sun Seeker also they wanted to give business rights to screw their employees over. Pelosi knew they were not going to get anything remotely useful until the Republicans hang themselves to dry, McConnell kills bills just out of spite even if they’re good for their constituents if its written by a Democrat its fate is sealed. If we get 2 democrat senators in the run offs then mitch McConnell is going to loose a lot of power which considering might be good enough for now.

      You mean Nasty Pelosi

    • Sure ask nancy. Pelosy even. Cnn asked her months ago. Why. She no. Got. Agreement with. Republican pass stimulus. Check for. American people. It is clear. Left. Wing. No want. President. Trump succes. But researc.h real news. Nancy and. Other politician. Approved 550000000 millions. Stimulus for other corrupt. Government. Countries from central america and other countries! That real news show

    • @Mary Rendon is your translator acting up? Your obviously not American

    • @Mary Rendon I hope English is not your primary language because the articulate of your sentences are atrocious. But to answer your question they refused because the gop stimulus plans where bull crap, they appropriate money from other needed programs and there is little new money to help and if those programs fail they will just shrug and say that they were unsustainable even though they raided the money and pretend non of it happen.

  4. Thanks Congress. $600 will pay exactly for two things: 1.Jack. 2. Sh*t

      😎 from Canada where for months on folks were paid $2,000 per month. I didn’t apply for one for I still had my job.

    • Maureen Peterson | December 22, 2020 at 4:57 AM | Reply

      @Waryaa Wariiri From Australia- $3000 a month to employers to keep staff – $1500 a fortnight for unemployed!

    • The only people it helps is people who still have jobs and have their bills contained albeit precariously, its small and it keep a small number of the streets longer but thats it, a tiny bandaid. If the bill boosted unemployment or allowed an extension or expanded something like food stamps or social security then it would more substantial. But I’m sure neither where boosted.

    • @Waryaa Wariiri So what unemployed in U.S were getting $600/week. equal to about $3000 Canadian for months. Even with $300/week now that is almost $2000 a month in Canadian money plus state unemployment.

      @Waryaa Wariiri did everyone asked

  5. Americana will get 600, and pay 900 hundred billion back

  6. Technically some people won’t receive a check, eventhough the virus effects everyone, regardless of the technical difficulties that prevent them from getting one

  7. They are a disgrace to the people

      Democrats are a joke

    • Heather Melissa | December 22, 2020 at 10:39 AM | Reply

      @The Truth Hurts You! nope. Whatever YOU are is! Partisan political stances only show that you are the programmed sheep that has zero critical thinking skills and lives in willful ignorance and stupidity. People like you ARE the problem. Too bad closed minds like your don’t come with closed mouths.

  8. The Congress should have to live on this amount of money.
    The relief package would be a lot different.

    What about the homeless..? What about people on disability..? What about the people who have racked up thousands and thousands of credit card debt, just trying to survive after being furloughed..? What about next month..? What about raising taxes on Wall St. billionaires… instead of treating the poor and the middle class as if they were nothing but a resource..?

    • Homeless don’t need money. Haha what’s wrong with you. They don’t have Income!

    • Tessmage Tessera | December 22, 2020 at 10:13 AM | Reply

      @nm mk Shut up.

    • @SoulHarvester Gaming oh I’m afraid that has been reported as being in the bill. All this oversea nonsense funding needs to be halted. So do you support Biden saying he will provide free healthcare to all “undocumented” migrants, errr illegal aliens? You ready to pay for that? California is already drafting laws to make it mandatory.

    • SoulHarvester Gaming | December 22, 2020 at 3:08 PM | Reply

      @Tom Phillips the 900b covid relief bill is tied directly into the the overall government spending bill which is 2.5T. So the aid is not in the covid part of the bill but easily confused. I still feel your frustration neither should include millions to other countries while are people are starving and about to be homeless

    • Nadia Silvershine | December 22, 2020 at 8:08 PM | Reply

      President Trump paid zero in taxes for about ten years, and $750 for another year, ridiculous.

  10. $600 isn’t going to do anything…
    This check will not stimulate anything💯 this is a survival check.. We need real HELP!! why don’t they understand that..
    Oh yeah that’s right because they’re not living pay check to pay check…
    Every last 1 of the GOP members and a few of the democrats need to be removed asap..

  11. Aren’t the people that need help the ones that sent the money to Washington DC in the first place

  12. 2:32 I like that😍💋 💝💖❤️

  13. Clean up all this corruption politicians governments that will be good for American peoples

    That clip at the end gets me every time. This is what I hear

    “To subscribe just click, blow me…”

  15. This relief package is not nearly enough. How many people are going to go homeless ?

  16. Are landlords being allowed to get regular income when their tenants are in turmoil? Or have they too downsized their rentals as sacrifice towards sharing everybody’s economic hardship?

  17. Too little too late…this amount doesn’t even cover one month’s rent after waiting since March. A very sad joke on seniors…and the rest of the Americans suffering

  18. This is not a relief package, this is just extending the burden on families struggling right now. $600 is a joke!

  19. Robert Rhinehart | December 22, 2020 at 4:28 AM | Reply

    Its going to take at least 4 trillion dollars to get us through this.

  20. You know I don’t even know why I pay my taxes to the U.S. Government if they won’t even help. In the worst economic downturn in over a hundred years. Maybe people should stop paying a dismissive government and organize non profit organizations to pay those taxes to. That fill the same roll in emergency situations…
