    Perfect. Let’s see the Republicans show their true colors right before the Georgia special runoff election.
    When the people are desperately in need of help .. Republicans are “Sorry, no money, we’re broke.”
    When rich people want to be able to buy their 6th jet or 9th yachts .. Republicans are “How much do you want?”

      @Jim Yarbrough no that is simply not true. Only the something or nothing argument that they have pushed on you for months to make you OK with settling for scraps

    • SoulHarvester Gaming | December 28, 2020 at 2:20 PM | Reply

      @Ray S if you are okay with someone who’s negotiating skills let 95% of the benefits you deserve fall off the table in exchange for litteraly nothing than I am glad we aren’t in business togwther

    • Where are the southern Democrats along the gulf Coast, why are they so quit.We have been through at least three hurricanes, we can use that money yet you don’t hear anything. From Texas too FLORIDA

    • surely you joke, mein failüre | December 28, 2020 at 3:57 PM | Reply

      @James Green If you’re going to do that sort of whataboutism, please include the remainder of the guilty parties (the Republicans) and don’t forget to mention that both Texas and Florida are in the hands of .. you guessed it .. Republicans.

      @Charon85Onozuka He’s trying to save the Senate seats in Georgia, so, like Donald, he caved.

  2. Trump just wanted to assert himself. Period.

    This Donald just wants to hold in to power unable to govern the country
    He needs to put the people in the USA first The painful experiences of millions must take presidence

  4. if americans want $2,000 checks then ossoff AND warnock need to win jan. 5th 2021. snapping turtle mcconnell & his friends will NEVER agree to such a deal.

  5. Punishment of the American people for not voting him to a 2nd term.

  6. How about just vote for the extra money with no other attachments? Just the extra money to help folks out

    • Because israel needs more tax payer funded solid gold mansions.

    • @s w if the GOP believed USAID shouldn’t get money why do they pass the bill? All the rotten GOP wants is for POOR AMERICANS to get CRUMBS while the billions go to them through their businesses.

    • You’re talking about Republicans here. They don’t care.

    • @aman andom the problem is that people keep believing there is a Democrat and Republican party. There is only one party….the UNIPARTY. They play their roles to keep us divided. Divided we are weak. The biggest fear of the “elites” is that the people unite against them. As for your question, they all benefit from the laundromat. Look at the net worth of those in congress, sure some are wealthy before they get there but their net worth grows exponentially once in office….so why would the “GOP or the DNC” stop USAID? There is NO motivation to do so. Take care,

    • @s w They BOTH are EVILS. GOP are just Worse.

  7. Signing the bill means nothing for us that need real relief. Don’t bet on that $2000 check because McConnell will trade it for no corporate responsibility. Yes, a free CV-19 pass. We already have laws for workers rights.
    This is just another coordinated Republican con that will never come true for you so McConnell can keep his power in the Senate. These elected politicians could care less about the average or poor american.

  8. 4-6 months ago:

    Democrats: we need to give the people 1800-2000 Dollars
    #MoscowMitch : Nope. Take 400?
    #OrangeMoron : Gotta play golf…

    • @GeneralCurtis3LeMay There is a salary cap on whos able to get the stimulus relief.

    • Without Trump you will have 600$ without knowing anything about this bill!

    • @Sly Shadows Your Username name makes whatever you say false (SLY & SHADOW). Ain’t nothing real about u.
      FOOLS LIKE U LISTEN TO HIM. I get my info from a HIGHER SOURCE.

    • @Eneri Irofo I have this nickname since 2003/2005…Not on youtube… But on many other site or videogame. I didn’t chose it to comment on politic matter

    • @Sly Shadows Then you’re very ignorant as his cult members. We all know his WH reps for the bill only pushed for $600.
      I thought gamers were high thinkers because you require logical reasoning to win video games. Wow!

    the country was “taken through this” because the current president loves to see other people suffer.

    • @Cindy Ngo You are anti-American just as all liberal minorities in this country are. Go back to your homeland and be miserable there.

    • @Cindy Ngo The problem isn’t trump

    • @Cindy Ngo Pelosi and the Democrats played with your life for 3 months Facts :Trump offered $1,200 stimulus checks Democrats refused to hurt trump fact ,but your happy with $600 and give Democrats a pass. WTF

    • @evil khor I love my country and I am so proud of my self with other 80 millions Americans have voted out this FAKE PRESIDENT ..

    • @Eric Thomas Well….I am glad that this EVIL PRESIDENT will no longer hurt American lives after Jan/20/2021……..

  10. Ahh so now the republicans are concerned with small businesses getting the loans? When the first batch went to multi million dollar companies. Bunch of crooks.

  11. This is the crap that happens when the Government is run by Millionaires !!

    • I’d rather say “Milli-owner” for Trump.

    • Plutocracy:
      (look it up for yourself)
      Plutocracy is a government controlled exclusively by the wealthy either directly or indirectly. A plutocracy allows, either openly or by circumstance, only the wealthy to rule. This can then result in policies exclusively designed to assist the wealthy.

    • They’re too rich off the backs of the poor Trump keep playing games with the American people 🇺🇸

    • MOST of them BECAME Millionaires by the BRIBES (lobbying) they take from Big Corporations and Billionaires!!

    • It’s not trump. It’s the Republican that didn’t want to pass the 2000

  12. As long as Republican Party existed in this country there will be depression, recession and chaos. I hope this party extinct within few years.

    • @Chad Simmons because CA has the most citizens of any state by far. Proportionately Rep states have the most people per Capita receiving fed govt aid because Rep Govs and legislatures have the most stingy safety net programs in the country so their citizens have to turn to the Fed govt more for aid.

    • @GlennC777 Frankly I’d like to hear you explain why it would have been a moral failure to end 2 immoral wars in Afganistán and Iraq let alone start 2 more in Libya and Syria not to mention supporting the Saudis in Yemen all under Obama.

    • @Paul Romano California spent 5-billion on a high speed train system, that goes nowhere, while 50,000 homeless thrive in the streets, make sense out of that?

    • Bit of Wizdomb | December 28, 2020 at 6:30 PM | Reply

      @GlennC777 is that why everyone is leaving ? And tents cities litter the streets ? Been to Venice beach lately ? Downtown LA? San Fran ? Out of control drug problems and crime ? CA planning to tax people even if they left 10 yrs ago? Sounds like success to me . All states should be run like CA 🤦🏼‍♂️ wasnt specifically referring to wealth btw.

      You gotta be kidding me.

      As if partisan adherents to either party aren’t inflicting a coLLECtive drag.

      And you actually feel enlightened.

      Despite the confederacy of bipartisan dunderheads and dunces relied upon to sustain them, pray they’re both trampled underfoot and utterly stamped out before I return to dust💥

    Moscow Mitch will find a lame excuse to deny us our money!

    • @saj103 LOL sounds like you’re projecting a bit. There are plenty of reasons to passionately hate trump 😭😂

    • Mitch is a loyal Trump ally in all things but 2000 stimulus checks. He’s a disgrace to my home state.

    • Daniella Stuart | December 28, 2020 at 12:08 PM | Reply

      Moscow Mitch will have the last laugh when on the 6th of Jan he and the Republicans confirm JO Biden has president

    • Well right now the Republicans need a win in Georgia to keep control of the senate. Thars why they are trying to spin this into them being the good guys wanting the $2,000 stimulus checks that the Democrats have ben pushing for months.

    • Why he doing it it not is money

  14. Not going to happen. Republicans are back on “defense” and pretending they didn’t support a coup.

  16. *I will be shocked if Mitch McConnell approves the passing of $2,000 checks to “the people”. That is way beyond his capacity of caring.*

    • Dominique Brasseur | December 28, 2020 at 3:31 PM | Reply

      @Brent Snyder There is a possibility that your point may have some validity. So I suggest that, before commenting, everyone gets aquainted with the content of this bill. However, I remain sceptic when you state tht his bill is “full of foreign aid, corporate handouts and tax breaks” but I will check it out, as everyone should. Because, it what you say is true, there is a huge problem. But the fact that trump, at the 11th hour, decided that this bill was not fair, also remains a big concern. He took his sweet time to make his voice heard on this issue, contrary to his constant barrage of “comments” about the election results. So, I agree that those $600 is a total disgrace. Please keep in mind that the Dems fought for a higher amount. And please keep in mind that they have been obstructed constantly, by trump (who seems to have suddently “discovered” that playing the liberal card, may be a good argument to gather ammunition in order to win back the people who did not vote for him). When everything else fails, pathological narcissists literally highjack other people’s work and good will. Because they feed on others. So, it is good that you keep your wits about you, but keep in mind that others will do the same. In the meantime, best wishes for the future to you and your loved ones.

      U both sound like kids The republicans don’t even want to give 600 it’s like pulling. If you want a change in the future one or both have to go this is bs

    • 10 months of waiting those checks should start begin mailing out tomorrow

    • Francisco Echeverria | December 28, 2020 at 8:44 PM | Reply

      Succumb to national pressure.

  17. Trump played us again. The reality is that he just couldn’t resist another photo opportunity. That is the point.

      @Mark D Sanchez …. No my parents do know what I’m doing but your mother does… and it’s “You’re” not “your”, while you’re talking about education you can’t pass a 3rd grade grammar quiz… Trump groupies are so stupid it’s unbelievable… look at what you just did… YOUR parents should be embarrassed.

      @Mark D Sanchez … don’t disappear like Covid with a little heat… you can’t even defend your stupidity…. if you’re dumb enough to do that, then you’re dumb enough to support a lying conman and you’re so stupid you fall for his cons & lies… that’s why Trump believes he can shoot somebody and get away with it because he knows his groupies are borderline brain dead…. do YOUR parents know that you don’t know the difference between your & you’re???

      Trump played Moscow Mitch .

  18. A manipulator says one thing and does another. Trump says $2000 but his actions are for $0.

  19. It’s Trump trying to show us he’s still relevant and still has power.

  20. Elections matter. Not just presidential elections, but every special, and midterm elections.
    A vote for the Democratic Party,
    is a vote for the people.

    • Democrats were complicit in the fleecing of America.

      Vote Independent.

    • Both party find and paid by Zionist lobby and other corporates.Fool

    • @Haifa Hoffman racist much?

      As if a small nation has so much control.

      Let’s assume your racism is factual, and not just the bleating of a fevered mind.

      If that small nation controlled the world, wouldn’t that make their God the ONLY real God?
