  1. Republican Senators NAY

  2. Brilliant, the Senate won’t pass it and now everyone will know who the real a-holes in Washington are. As if we didn’t already know.

  3. Guarantee Senate Republicans will reject this unless they want to win Georgia votes 😂

  4. Watching from london, we all know this isn’t passing. republican senators DO NOT care. Enough playing nice with them

    I will remember these clowns who did not vote for this bill i hope all you people are paying attention. And remember. What will happen and vote them all out ???????

  6. Let’s see how Republicans in the SENATE….justify their vote to their constituents….should they vote ” no” tomorrow.

  7. Bill is as dead as McConnell’s personality when it hits the senate floor.

      I have a very strong feeling about that as well. But I pray that it does pass. Because the American people so very desperately need 2,000 dollars. Just to start helping people back on there feet. Because 600 dollars is like 2 trips to the grocery store and maybe a back water bill. Or ect. Depending on the number of people in your family. So saying lots of prayers that the Senate passes the 2,000 dollar stimulus package.

    • Did something just say Mcconnell died? Oh crap just read it wrong.

    • @Michelle Gravitt I hope I’m wrong and it’s 2K . 🙏

    • which ever senator votes against this bill will have their name out there for all Americans to see .

    • China intentionally attacked us with their COVID19 bioweapon. Let’s pass the $2000 stimulus and then war China and bomb them back to the Stone Age.

  8. The Next big stimulus Package will be a $25 Gift Card to Kmart if you can find any still open

  9. His parents created a Frankenstein Monster and the GOP bred a dragon 🐉..

  10. Good luck with the McConnell Senate graveyard where Bills go to die unless it’s for the 1 %.

    Sociopaths donot have the capacity to sympathize or empathize. How do these people sleep, take vacations or play golf while people are suffering!?

    • They don’t care. It isn’t directly affecting them so why would they. They cheat to win has always been the game and we keep seeing the run around. Like stacking the deck for the outcome. I doubt we will see any of our money passed the 600. Its bait for ppl to vote repub for the senate. For me, if i were a Georgian, writing is on the wall and bye repubs. They’ve been a sinking ship and it needs to die at the bottom of the abyss where it belongs.

      Exactly because they have none.

      Well, our richest sociopaths get knocked out daily with a lot of very strong sleeping aids, and then with Uppers to wake them up.

      The bill is
      Too little, far too late. And so childish America!

      Anyways all you boy-god-given greatest Stable-Geniuses:

      there are a few ongoing indicators, so FAR, that those vaccines wont work for everyone and possibly not more than a few months to a year. Again, so far.

      The below is logical and was predictable. Logical due to the higher infections, hospitalization rates and in particular so due to the higher presence of people with antibodies here in the USA vs China. And it was predictable in particular based on the fact that we are now coming to know that the SARS COV-2 virus has, possibly again, mutated to be more contiguous and probably also more deadly.

      “Coronavirus epidemic was spreading in US last Christmas, long before it was identified in China, new study”

      O Dear, never-mind me now. I am just here for the good show. You’ll will know more in our Tomorrow, as usual. 😊😷🤗😘😍

      Godless Best,

    • It’s been like that Throughout History. The Elite, nothing has changed at all,smh.

    • Hello how are you doing?

    She’s right. It’s nice to see their monster turn on them

      @TANIS Q. 🤣 what in human society isn’t? They have controlled EVERYTHING about our society for as long as we have had recoded history…. maybe try getting a grip on reality.

    • Daniel Webster | December 28, 2020 at 8:57 PM | Reply

      @TANIS Q. most antivaxers I know have done meth. Kind of ironic isn’t it.

  13. At this point, the Senate should have no say. It’s for we the people.

  14. This is just Trump’s plot of revenge against the Republicans oh, he’s mad that many of them are not helping him

  15. Bernie Sanders pulled a rabbit out from his hat.. against Mitch McConnell a while ago.

  16. Senator Chris Murphy (D-CT) pointed out today, “If his goal was really to get a better deal on the budget, he would have vetoed it immediately and begun negotiating. But his goal is actually national arson—chaos for the fun of it. So he sits on the budget—does nothing—in order to guarantee a government shutdown.”

  17. This might be a win-win for the American people, if they don’t pass it in the Senate, Republicans solidify they will lose in Georgia and Mitch McConnell will be gone next year and if they pass it, the American people get $2000 dollars.

      Good point

      I think Republicans lost Georgia already, Trump told republicans votes don’t matter so the turnout for the run off elections was extremely low for the republican side. As well the debates were a disaster for the Republicans.

  18. This whole system is BS. House passed the Bill then send it to Senate where Moscow SOB Mitch will throw in the Garbage.

  19. Georgia needs to reject the GOP and the republicans if they want relief. MC Connell will not help you he is not willing to help Americans. You can take his power away.

  20. At least after a vote in the Senate we will know who’s for Americans and who isn’t…..
