House GOP kills bid for $2,000 stimulus checks, Democrats vow full house vote 1


The House of Representatives failed to advance a measure that would increase direct payments to Americans under a certain income level to $2,000 — up from the $600 level passed earlier this week — bringing lawmakers back to square one as they search for a way to appease President Donald Trump's demands.
House Democrats tried to quickly pass the bill by a unanimous consent request Thursday morning, but Republicans rejected the move, leaving the future of the $900 billion stimulus package — and whether any changes will be added to it — in doubt. That stimulus package was attached to a spending bill for the entire federal government, and a deadline for government funding expires Monday at midnight.
Democrats have seized on Trump's surprise objections to the bill in a bid to push Republicans to accept a higher amount for the stimulus checks — and Republican lawmakers are now in a difficult spot where they will be forced to decide whether or not they will defy the President.
Democrats vowed their effort isn't over, promising to move to pass a bill to increase the stimulus checks to $2,000 with a full up-or-down vote on the House floor December 28.
"On Monday, I will bring the House back to session where we will hold a recorded vote on our stand-alone bill to increase economic impact payments to $2,000. To vote against this bill is to deny the financial hardship that families face and to deny them the relief they need," Pelosi said in a statement.

    • @Dale Hartley
      Lol I just pulled up that video… I watched it a couple years ago.

    • I don’t understand why people talk about guns, when Trump has already killed 320k in covid are you guys not feeling the pain that so many people have died for nothing or you feel it only when it’s one of your family members. Everyone that says covid19 is a lie please sign a waiver so real people cam get help and you other people that fallow trump can wait in line like every body else or go home and wait till you die. America needs that covid19 relif bill signed by Trump it’s already been passed by both parties what else is there to do what till more people die in the name of what? God bless all the real people of America good luck from Ozz

    • It was never for us . All about more misery for all of us. He’s playing golf!!!

    • @Joel Hummel That’s not what the comment is about.

    • @Sharon Azevedo You guys act like Obama, Bush, Clinton didn’t play golf.

    Remember people, these politicians are still collecting their checks while many more hard working tax paying citizens are being pushed into poverty.

      @Vicki Richardville yes according to CNN. The same network who had to pay 275 million dollars to an underage school kid by trying to destroy his life with fake news.

    • @CC cro then that would make you human as oppose to a human animal. That gives me hope

    • @Bigg da og that’s why it’s hilarious to hear politicians claim that they are pro-military but will delay and deny them raises while keeping pork in their priorities.

    • @TCB 101 i don’t blame ya one bit, i am to for that matter, if I’d be happy if they’d do something anything to help us for sure but it’s like one side can’t do a damn thing if the other don’t go along. It’s like a pair of legs of a drunk, one side staggers one way and the other the opposite

    • It’s what happened when you voted for a Las Vegas president or a con man.

      Try get 2 Democrat senators from Georgia and thing will absolutely get better.

      Young people need to vote in massive to turn this country around.

  4. At this point, the republicans in the House are putting our lives at risk now. Trump wants $2000, so does the Democrats, but his own party refuses it. I want these politicians to burn.

    We are not asking for a hand out. It’s our money. This is Not our fault!!!

    • Ask for a handout, it’s our money, Americans pay taxes and create the economy the least the government can do is give checks so that Americans can put it into the economy to survive and create stimulus. They pocket our money and it only benefits them, billionaires, foreign aid. Tell the family that lost everything that’s it’s a handout to get a check that would put food on the table a few weeks or keep them from being evicted. Some people rather see families on the streets than give them a check to keep food on the table. Republicans are funny, they love to claim, they are the religious right but willfully ignore homelessness, medical poverty, etc. Both parties are wrong and careless about the American people.

    • Mary jean Edwards Look at the breakdown of the bill The democrats are raping Americans yet again!!!!! billions of dollars to foreign govts !!!! this is about Americans jot the bolsheviks pet projects!

    • Am sorry is not our money this is mitch McConnell money he’s just doing us a favor by giving us 600 dollars this is unbelieveable how the Republican treat working people in this country

    • What’s funny is you begging for your money some people could giving your money away wet for their own agenda you ain’t part of that agenda inches to worker bee you know what happens to the worker bee to get smashed this is about Democrats this about having a democratic World Book the Republicans we got to get rid of them they’re no good there they’re the ones trying to get rid of us we gotta get rid of the Republicans what’s smashing disregard that we won’t let them win any votes seriously are the Antichrist Republicans smashing away only Democrats that’s why we’re serving our giving you our tax dollars away 2/3 what countries cuz we want them to be Democrats they want them to serve us just like you have for 50 years so when you beg for your money to forget who’s to give them your money ever again

    • One way or another the economy is screwed up…while we should get much needed stimulus… the constant printing and release of money only brings the value of the dollar down…the only way to keep the value in check is a strict stimulus to citizens and those who need unemployment benefits not to areas where it isn’t Needed like anything connected to government or large corporations…

    House and senate Republicans: Merry Christmas you filthy animals… and a f***ed up new year.

    • They passed the bill Pelosi wanted for 6000 with PORK she also passed. 2000 did come up until trump critized bill; aidd 2000 but drop the PORK. He offered 1200 mnths ago which stupid Pelosi turned down. Now she might lose her house leadership .Pelosi hates trump more than she cares about us. Shummer also went along. So it 600 or nothing.

    • They are multimillionaires in congress that don’t care.

    • Pelosi has been palying politics since moths ago Trump offered 1200 but pelosi and shummer turned it down. Both houses passed 600.

      Good. That bill didn’t need to be accepted. 6,000 pages of crap that would destroy our country. Stop focusing on “BUT THE $2,000 PEOPLE NEED!!!” there was very terrible things in that bill aside from sending money to other countries for no reason. The COVID-19 Relief bill should have ONLY the stimulus checks for the American and NOTHING ELSE! Did you know in that bill there was going to be a change to the DMCA which makes streaming ANYTHING copyrighted a 10 y ear felony? Oh, are you streaming on youtube or twitch and someone comes in with a Lord of the Rings shirt? COPYRIGHTED! 10 year felony. Music from your phone accidently play? 10 years of jail. THis 6,000 page omnibus bill was so harmful to america, but you will continue to reply screaming “$2,000 IS HARMFUL TO AMERICA!?” And not even read what I said.

  12. Millions will suffer, bit not one of these politicians will be affected.

    This goes to show, that GOP never wanted to give money to the American People and cares more about back room deals.

  16. It’s crystal clear the GOP don’t care about Americans.

    • @Chas Burns A pure $2000 check was proposed by Sanders but blocked by GOP in Senate.

    • Old lady Pelosi held this up for months. It’s a fact.

      If you was smart you would know Nancy Pelosi holds the purse in government! She has put things in the bill that have nothing to do with the virus ! President Trump is right 2000 a person is better then 600 when giving illegals 1800 a person and we the American people only get 600 ! How is that fair??? Its NOT!!! Both partys are to blame !

    • @Tony Z At least give me the date that “Sanders” bill you speak of was passed in the congress. Maybe a cspan link of the vote. Anything? Anything at all besides some fake person posting a few words anomalously on the internet like you just did.

    Man, this makes me so angry. They don’t care about funding all kinds of crap. But, the American people NEED this and they are all failing us.

    • The Fat Orange Baby just left the relief bill on his desk. We’re all going to suffer from his infantile temper tantrum. Congress won’t agree on a different deal when it took them nine months to get this one passed. The government shutdown begins Monday night. Too many are starving and awaiting eviction. We’re screwed.

    • Hello

  18. The amount of homeless people in the US is gonna shoot up hella hard.

  19. Stop all their checks until this is settled for all Americans!
