  1. The American people are out of work and hungry, American people can’t wait until next year for a stimulus checks

    Why don’t Americans have affordable healthcare, education and housing like Europeans ?

    • Because millions of Americans don’t like the fact that quite a lot of the peope who would get those benefits are black. In short: racism.

    • Saoirse Cushing: Hey! What’s with saying Europeans? Canada is the closest and we’re like Europeans.

  3. 1st
    You know what would really help Americans afford food?

    Wait till everyone picks up a pitch fork and goes after Mitch MacConell😂

      He is so F… cynical. Has done nothing to me, but his arrogant attitude bothers me just watching him play politics while people are suffering and struggling. Nancy does not want to agree with their deal, because they will continue giving millions to themselves and the huge corporations in this country while the majority unemployed mid class and small businesses keep struggling. And do you know what these huge companies do with that money? The owners will invest it and get more profit instead of giving it to mid class people to grow up the economy.

      @Deyan Zaprianov finally someone that sees it for what it is👍

      LOL what an appropriate tool for the little devil. He’s a disgusting excuse of a man his wife looks like it was one of those mail order brides because I doubt he was in the military forces and grabbed her overseas

      @Dahra Brofford it’s all that plastic surgery, Cocaine it’s the face away 😉✌️

  6. Who would have thought that the supposedly “richest country” can’t even feed it’s own people. These are donated food, not even provided for by the federal government. Sad to think we are a 3rd world country under Trump.

    All you Trump supporters.. What is Trump doing about this… other than playing golf and losing it ovver Twitter and phoning Fox news. U alright with him letting u struggle and starve..

    The US government gave Wall Street 3 trillion dollars without blinking an eye, It spends BILLIONS on war and bombs. Yet they won’t create a safety net for their own people? No healthcare, no housing, no $$$ for food, it’s just an “you’re on your own” country even during a PANDEMIC! This is a morally depraved country that is based on exploitation.

    • I heard this. Rugged individualism for the poor working class, socialism for the very rich & wealthy corporations and people.

    • This has been going on for years. People need to get smart and put a new representative to oust the ones that are not working for the people. It doesn’t really matter which side. If they are not working for the state they are from get rid of them by not supporting that valuable vote you have.

    • I agree with everything you are saying except to say don’t call it a country, it’s the American Empire.

  9. This is what America is under tRump and his partners in crime.People need food- money – shelter- Healthcare.I hope Biden can make America the Greatest again.stay safe.😷✌

    The Little Pantry That Could. Nashville, TN

  11. US has an obesity health crisis and yet millions are going hungry even before covid

    • But isn’t it suprising that quite a lot of poor people in America look overweight? I think it’s because quite a lot of cheap food is very fattening.

    • @Shahid Khan It’s easy to eat healthy on a budget. It’s just easier to grab a Big Mac with fries and a Diet Coke.

    • @B K Even in England where food is not as cheap, you can buy food cheaper than McD’s.

    So sad! Yet the PoliTRICKIANS want to pass a bipartisan stimulus plan of $908 billion dollars WITHOUT a stimulus check for eligible Americans. Ridiculous and disgusting!

  13. We The People…. Are dying
    We The People…. Are Starving
    We The People…. Are still waiting

    4 years has past this is your MAGA

  14. But all this money to Gove ppl food just give people enough money to buy their own food cause a lot of pantry places they give bs food

    We are in the foreplay of a depression.

    From UK: It is cruel to watch the so called most powerful country on the planet relies on charity to feed it’s people because the rich politicians have zero experience of poverty and only want to feed themselves.You are literally demanding a revolution!!!

  17. Government is of, for and by the people… not of, for me by the corporation

  18. Millions of Americans going hungry and out of work.
    Make America Great Again?
    More like Made America Go Athirst.

    What would we do without the organizations who are helping the people. Our government isn’t doing anything to show they care.

  20. Countries like Russia, NK & China love to see this happening in the US.
