  1. If I worked as hard as Congress did at my job, I’d be fired within a week.

    • @Mark Stewart Man. It’s amazing how little the people know. Until you see they won’t listen. How in the world is the junk all over the television and media not affecting our kids. Now covid…. people have realized if you’re gonna die you might as well go out kicking and screaming. All they have done to trump. The news said his youngest son had Down syndrome. And made fun of him. But no mention of foreign prostitution and the Biden corruption. They killed Epstein. And on and on.

      @Ash Roskell Rotting Corpse Pelosi Admitted she won’t let a stimulus Bill pass until Dementia Joe Kid Touch can take credit for it! MORON!

    • I don’t know politics but I do know corruption and you know what I mean.

    • @Troy Cheak agreed, this government is corrupt. But it is time to replace it with a genuine liberty & physically evidenced natural law system. Voting will never get you anything but despotism. It is time to change the system.

      @ItsStillRealToMe DamnIt yea the republicans want to distribute money to the people and money only.. before the election all bills wrote up by the Demorats included unconstitutional mail in ballot laws.. they never would sign off on the money bc dems thought it would help trump! Not my words that’s straight from Nancy pelosi’s lips. Don’t be a zombie

      @Youtube is blocking Election fraud videos Republicans want to distribute chump change to the people, not money. We would get proper payments over McConnell’s dead body, he doesn’t think we need or deserve it. If you can’t see that, you are dumb as a rock.

      @Jack Slack thanks for the ammo when arguing facts with covid loonies

  5. More ppp for spouses of congress and their businesses … Our whole govt needs to be scrapped … They trickle $600 down to the bottom while they get rich …

  6. Randy Ragsdale | December 17, 2020 at 1:14 AM | Reply

    I’m sorry but $600 is not enough money for Americans struggling through this pandemic.

  7. A whooping 20 bucks to live on per day for a month. That’s it .. as politicians keep saying, “suffering for 9 months.”

  8. After many already can’t furnish a Christmas for their families. Fire them all, especially the rich leaders in Congress and Senate!

  9. Well it only took 8 months! Supposed to be the richest countries and it took 8 months for a crumb.

  10. $600 for One person is shameful.

  11. 90 proof Nancy has held it up every time!

  12. We get 600 but they get kick backs from off the book deals of hundreds of millions…Wow!

    The powerful country in the WORLD, and yet can’t support his own fellow American’s? So, sad though..

      @radar0412 you should be saying freakin republicans, they weren’t going to give you any money at all, now at least you got something. Is that you people can do is whine, never grateful for you get.

    • @psycobleach46 tullis No need to address Republicans… Most of them still think Trump won despite all the evidence saying he didn’t 🤷‍♂️

  15. $600? That’s a joke! After waiting for 8 mos? These people in the senate don’t have a clue!!! They’re all out of touch!!!

    1200 $ for 9 months. Wow. Now in the dead of winter. It’s just sad.

    Thank you, esteemed members of Congress, for tossing the dying American people a few scraps from your table.

  18. Norman Christian | December 17, 2020 at 2:28 AM | Reply

    It is hard to believe she sat up there and say what she said with a straight face. No wonder this country is in the position it is in.

  19. Nancy been holding up 6 months,she admitted it fake news
