  1. Highly doubt McConnell will let this happen

  2. Dead on arrival with the enemy of progress Mitch McConnell

  3. This whole system is BS. House passed the Bill then send it to Senate where SOB Mitch throw in the Garbage. So whoever control the Senate control the country.

    • You are correct. Moscow Mitch strikes again.

      Our founders designed our system of checks and balances because they believed it’s better to stop government from passing bad laws than to have a new law at all. I agree with them. If Americans were hungry enough they would stand up to their government, demand an end to the shutdowns and get back to work.🇺🇸

    • @#NOTMYPRESIDENT #RESIST You have warp sense of history because Alexander Hamilton the first Treasury Secretary of the United States, created the first 11 point plan for manufacturing to build wealth in America, and we were betrayed by Ronald Reagan and the Republicans broke that plan and created “Free Trade” to destroy the democrats’.

    Hey Trump supporters: your own party is the reason why you won’t see any of your own money. Stop voting Republican.

    If Moscow Mitch decides that this bill isn’t worth while, the people of Georgia will know that David Perdue and Kelly Loefller isn’t worth while either.

      @Tonny Stalk Exactly!!!!

    • Considering that they had inside information about covid early on, and not only did they not warn their state about it, they sold off stock knowing that said stock was about to become worthless.

      They probably couldn’t gotten away with it if they told their people about covid but still sold their stock. They would’ve at least helped, but they couldn’t even do that.

    • We just passed $740-Billion dollars for military spending but these Republicuntz won’t pass an additional $2K- thousand dollars stimulus checks because of national defecit? Really? After this past year they have cost us just this year $13-15Trillion dollars to our GDP from lack of handling Covid19! Trickle down Economics….hilarious!

  6. The 134 who voted against the bill should be taken out of office.

  7. I’m sure Republicans are thinking, “Wait! we cannot give money to working people without also rewarding the rich and corporations with 10 times the amount.”

      @Richard Desch why is the end did the members of the house to go along with it? It should’ve been set aside for another bill. It should not of been included in the stimulus bill. Companies people might have wanted these foreign countries to have aid but we didn’t have to go along with it.
      Then there is a question about the two new museums connected with the Smithsonian. One concern women’s issues one concern Latinos. Clearly that did not come from the Trumpster.

    • @T. R. Campbell I agree but the stimulus bill would never have been voted on unless attached to this 9 month CR bill. People are just getting “woke” because the stimulus happens to be attached to this temp budget. It happens in every CR and budget. Plenty of blame to go around

    • @Lisa Clark Good luck with that. Maybe you’ll take home a souvenir, some Covid-19!

    • @#NOTMYPRESIDENT #RESIST That argument is entitely based off an assumption…stfu. We are in a pandemic you moron

    • @Lisa Clark Keep crying those conservative tears. There is *NOTHING* you can do. Be it now, January 6th or January 20th 🤡

  8. Dear Georgians🙏Vote Blue and take back the Senate and don’t let the Republicans hold us Hostage on our stimulus🙏

    • @Robocock22 wow. First of all it is our money to begin with. Second of all some people CAN’T work or unable to find work. But you do you booboo. Let me guess, we are all sheep and you are anti antifa and believe antifa to be an actual group. Hmmm… Good day!!

    • @Robocock22 YOU LOST the election, there’s nothing you can do about it.

    • It isn’t stimulus it’s survival

    • @Cory Challice
      They’re thinking of what they would do with the money. They’d bank it. Invest it.
      All the stimulus funds will get spent almost immediately and will trickle back up quickly. It will simply allow the masses (us) to muddle through until we can get back to feeding the machine. This pandemic has drained the remaining savings from many and put it into Bezos’ and the Waltons’ pockets.

      Why? So the rest of GA can be as bankrupt, blighted and crime-ridden as Atlanta??? No thanks!

  9. Is it just me, or does Moscow Mitch always look like he just crapped his pants?

  10. Good luck everybody, here’s to hoping.

      Imagine living in Canada where they’re getting relief money like this every month. But the world’s “greatest country” unable to help its own. One side of the US has actually made it worse by denying the virus’ existence then making mask wearing a political thing. Now there’s half a million dead that didn’t need to be. And there’s still idiots out there that won’t mask up because “muh freedum” and “liberals wear masks hurrr”. Hopefully younger generations will have learned from all this that there is a way forward and it’s by not adopting idiotic beliefs in conspiracies and the rhetoric of a narcissistic sociopath.

    • @Felix Blacksher Yeah I’m sneaking up there one of these days soon.

      @John Wilharm That’s a good point. Wishes are cleaner 🙋‍♀️❤

      @Silent Wisdom In deed it is. Nut shells remind me of squirrels and that makes me happy 🥜🐿🙋‍♀️❤

  11. Simple solution here; gag and maybe tie up Moscow Mitch so he can’t object.

  12. Georgia is your time stand up!!!!

  13. $2k would be starting 2021 off right. The US economy is 70% consumer spending that’s literally it.

    • Malcolm George | December 29, 2020 at 1:58 PM | Reply

      People spending is the economy only way to make jobs your portfolio is a crap shoot

    • Yes. We are a consumerist society. That is what holds our economy (now that most manufacturing jobs are overseas)

    • #NOTMYPRESIDENT #RESIST | December 29, 2020 at 2:06 PM | Reply

      @Malcolm George Our economy isn’t reliant on a bunch of Democrats buying malt liquor and fried chicken with their welfare checks…

    • #NOTMYPRESIDENT #RESIST | December 29, 2020 at 2:14 PM | Reply

      @Malcolm George I spent $100,000 on a market cap fund last march and it has made $38,000 thus far. I probably created dozens of jobs with that investment. How much did you spend this year and how much return did you get on your expenditures and how many jobs did you create?

    • #NOTMYPRESIDENT #RESIST | December 29, 2020 at 2:44 PM | Reply

      @Dawn Green If we just voted out politicians like Joe Biden who take bribes to send American manufacturing overseas, the American middle class would be as big as it was before they did it to us.🤨🇺🇸

  14. So we fund the government with our tax dollars and when we need help the government says figure it out yourself.

    • @Kenny Hill I’m not sure what you are getting at. I agree taxpayers pay taxes. But those taxes go toward paying off the debts the US govt has rendered from the federal reserve. And every year we borrow more funding thus the tax payers have to pay back more money or run a deficit.

    • Malcolm George | December 29, 2020 at 1:51 PM | Reply

      They got theirs and don’t care about the people who keep voting them back into office illogical people

    • Malcolm George | December 29, 2020 at 1:53 PM | Reply

      We the people fund this government thru tax dollars going into the treasury when I pay taxes my check goes to us treasury guess you don’t pay taxes Daquan

    • @Malcolm George lol…ok buddy

    • Welcome to America . I say we Dump Trump, Ditch MItch, and Meadow , and all the RepubliCUNTs in the WH

    “He’s not saying what he will do” Well, that’s an accomplished act for someone who loves to blow hot air and listen to himself talk!

  16. Georgia Vote Blue and you’ll have 2000$ check guaranteed no questions asked.

  17. Spend your $600 on a trip to your favorite congressmans house.

  18. They are living “la vida loca” we’re just trying to live for the next day.

  19. Don’t hold your breath: McConnell is not going to allow $2,000 checks to go out to poor people. It’s not happening.

  20. We should protest. A national protest. They’re not in need and play with our lives as they please.
