  1. $600 doesn’t pay one month of rent. I’m astonished that these rich politicians think that you can give a person $600 and make them shut up. Americans don’t understand, taxes are your money. We should be getting lost wages from YOUR job. You paid for unemployment. You don’t have a job, government should give you your money. $600 isn’t enough, $2000 isn’t enough in many cases. My wife lost her job due to COVID shut downs and she’s getting a quarter of her wages. Although she paid into unemployment for 40 years and never used it until today.

  2. He doesn’t walk around his district!!! Not any of them do. They sit in there glass houses and let the rest of us rot

      ALL the lies come out of trump AND all have been proved.
      Just as well next month they’ll end and he’ll be gone, most likely jailed for the stealing he’s done to every american.

    • @STAR Sirius Reagan and Bush Sr:  Iran/Nicaragua Contra, CIA sold Crack cocaine to the intercity blk population. Like hey, we can kill off the blk population and fund a proxy war. Joe Biden helped in pardoning the CIA director that started the whole operation, then pushed the 1994 Crime Bill to lock up crack addicts and dealers. It was sold in Maxine Waters district, she did Nothing about it!

      Bill Clinton: sold us out to China. Accused of sexually assaulting dozens of women. Hillary Clinton did everything to discredit women like Kathleen Willey and Paula Jones. Nothing Happened!

      Bush Jr.: lied to the American people, started an unprovoked war in Iraq, caused the murder of hundreds of thousands of innocent people. Nancy Pelosi said nothing and in fact said “I support my president to go into Iraq” nothing happened!

      Obama: $3B to Iran, fast and furious, bengazi, Spied on American citizens, used the IRS to target conservatives, Drone strikes, BP oil spill, released dozens of known terrorists that killed Americans, used a fake dossiea to obtain a bullshyt FISA warrant to justify spying on a political rival, Nothing happened.

      No one ever goes to jail. Politicians don’t mind corruption so as long as they are the ones doing the corrupting.

      What’s this? Money for US citizens and not foreign countrys for covid relief meant for americans ? You know democrats will scream foul.
      statement tonight from President Donald J. Trump:

      “As President of the United States it is my responsibility to protect the people of our country from the economic devastation and hardship that was caused by the China Virus.

      I understand that many small businesses have been forced to close as a result of harsh actions by Democrat-run states. Many people are back to work, but my job is not done until everyone is back to work.

      Fortunately, as a result of my work with Congress in passing the CARES Act earlier this year, we avoided another Great Depression. Under my leadership, Project Warp Speed has been a tremendous success, my Administration and I developed a vaccine many years ahead of wildest expectations, and we are distributing these vaccines, and others soon coming, to millions of people.

      As President, I have told Congress that I want far less wasteful spending and more money going to the American people in the form of $2,000 checks per adult and $600 per child.

      As President I am demanding many rescissions under the Impoundment Control Act of 1974. The Act provides that, “whenever the President determines that all or part of any budget authority will not be required to carry out the full objectives or scope of programs for which it is provided, or that such budget authority should be rescinded for fiscal policy or other reasons (including termination of authorized projects or activities for which budget authority has been provided), the President shall transmit to both Houses of Congress a special message” describing the amount to be reserved, the relevant accounts, the reasons for the rescission, and the economic effects of the rescission. 2 U.S.C. § 683.

      I will sign the Omnibus and Covid package with a strong message that makes clear to Congress that wasteful items need to be removed. I will send back to Congress a redlined version, item by item, accompanied by the formal rescission request to Congress insisting that those funds be removed from the bill.

      I am signing this bill to restore unemployment benefits, stop evictions, provide rental assistance, add money for PPP, return our airline workers back to work, add substantially more money for vaccine distribution, and much more.

      On Monday the House will vote to increase payments to individuals from $600 to $2,000. Therefore, a family of four would receive $5,200. Additionally, Congress has promised that Section 230, which so unfairly benefits Big Tech at the expense of the American people, will be reviewed and either be terminated or substantially reformed.

      Likewise, the House and Senate have agreed to focus strongly on the very substantial voter fraud which took place in the November 3 Presidential election.

      The Senate will start the process for a vote that increases checks to $2,000, repeals Section 230, and starts an investigation into voter fraud.

      Big Tech must not get protections of Section 230!

      Voter Fraud must be fixed!

      Much more money is coming. I will never give up my fight for the American people!”

    A Simple one page bill giving $2,000 dollars to the Americans that need it. That’s all. No nonsense.

    • Trump offered very close to that ($1500) 80 days ago. Review his tweets for proof.

      If that had passed, I bet he’d still be fighting for this $2K to us today.

    • Congress is holding America hostage
      either Trump agrees with all their excessive overspending on absurd pet projects for lobbyists and foreign countries,
      or else the American people get nothing at all.

      How are any of us American
      no matter what political party we believe in,
      okay this being done to us!!😤🤮😤🤮

      MSM is DISGUSTING.
      They are just political whores,
      Without any journalism professional integrity.
      They are Helping Congress to take advantage of All Americans!!!

      Article:..Trump said that Congress needs to pass a pandemic stimulus bill that includes $2,000 direct payments to Americans—not the $600 ones—or else he will veto it.

      “Congress found plenty of money for foreign countries, lobbyists, and special interests,”
      Trump said on Tuesday night in a video released on his social media pages. “While sending the bare minimum to the American people who need it.”

      The president said that he will veto the bill unless Congress can provide more money in stimulus payments and loans to small businesses in the midst of the pandemic.

      “I am asking Congress to amend this bill and increase the ridiculously low $600 to $2,000, or $4,000 for a couple,” he said.

      AOC, Ted Cruz agree:
      COVID relief bill was too big to read before vote

    No foreign aid, simply give our money back to us you thieving politicians.

    • The Evils who have been controlling our presidents in the past want to divide us using, race, religion, political affiliation. They think we, humans are weak and stupid and easily be manipulated using MSM (controlled by EVILs.) We need to unite (both DEMs and REPUBs) to fight back EVILs. This documentary was made by a Dutch journalist and explains that EVILs exist among our trusted politicians. It’s shocking and horrifying but if we choose to look away, we will end up like German people who let Nazi atrocity happen, later saying “I didn’t know…. ” So, thank you for your courage and please share this with your friends if you can. We can defeat EVILs if we unite!

    • @Young Blood If only it was that simple. I understand what your saying, but that’s a sort of investment. The US fights communism and totalism around the world. Not doing so bread people like Binladen. The US needs friends in several regions so that they can safely place military and industrial interests in the region that helps give the GDP growth, and by extension increases wealth in the US. This is a time of craziness in terms of the evictions, foreclosures etc, so I can understand the frustration. It isnt a hypothetical to say stop the payment, cease access to that area, bread terrorist’s (a safe harbor), loos safe access to natural resource or endanger supply chains, and then have to spend trillions to send in military forces to take back what you already had. Its madness for certain but that’s how these things work – these monies aren’t new – its been part of the spending for forty or fifty years in the least. Whether you like or don’t like trump he did a disservice by explaining it the way he did – the covid bill had nothing to do with the other.

    • @Young Blood now that is a good question and there should be a congressional web site, if your up for a very shitty task, of going through it to see where the monies are allocated.

      @M M Founded on capitalism corruption? I am always amused when i see comments of this subject. Has there ever been a governmental structure in History that has pulled billions of people out of poverty? In 1776 people were starving in the streets of Europe, every technology, medical advancement all the privilege’s we now enjoy are a direct result of capitalism. When people dnt have restrictions placed on them and are free to think , they want to make money.
