How House Progressives Set The Bar For The Covid Relief Bill | Rachel Maddow | MSNBC


  1. I still remember when every single republican on Capitol Hill came to the White House in 2017 to pose for a picture with Trump to celebrate the massive tax cut they gave to themselves, the most wealthy, Wall Street, and to billion dollar corporations. I like this better.

    1. @Gabe Dudley tax cuts for big businesses and billionaires was a trumpsollini tax cut, to create the trickle di trickle da trickery done effect

    2. @Jaak Savat if you watch nothing but big business run media you would think like a moron. Big corp defines the dnc. Along with big pharma and the massive censoring big tech. Now tell me what it is exactly you stand for?

    3. Hi !… I’m Joe Biden…👈😁…

      …and, like they say on TV, I wanna
      see that YOU get ALL the BENEFITS
      that YOU DESERVE…..👈😁….

      Call that “1-800” number
      on your screen for medicare….👈😁….

      If you are
      😉👉 “comin’ across the border”…
      call “1-666-DNC-VOTE”………👈😁…

    4. How is this different? Over a $ trillion are going to special interests!! Don’t be dumb.Each Americans share was $5300 but the Democrats gave you $1400 to shut you up!! It worked $1400 to shut you up they then keep the rest for pet projects. And you are happy!!!!!!!! Demonrat voters are easily bought.

    5. @David J John paul “punked” you
      with truth, and facts, and you
      deny, like a “juvenile” 🙉 👈😁…

  2. This is a big deal. It’s not what Republicans wanted, so sad. Joe went left, don’t be sorry. This is for the people.

    1. Mark, Hey BOY! Is Biden hiding his mental state or is he just a jerk who doesn’t care about answering our questions?

    2. @Frail Bones Biden Hey boy your boy was so busy grandstanding in front of cameras and playing golf he had no time left to run the country. Welcome to the return of a real president who gets the work done instead of worrying if his tan is the right color for the cameras.

    3. @Margaret Nicol Rather a jerk who likes to play golf, than a jerk who brags about children giving him consent to touch them *shakemyhead*

    1. Its always a fresh account that says something like that. Wonder why? Surely not a fake. Nothing about the left is fake🤪🤪🤪. How many other accounts to you use?


    3. @Maria Herrera yup. I would say you’re the sheep and very ignorant! Get a real life, all caps troll loser. Lmfao 🤑

  3. I have a lot of respect for Pramila Jayapal, one of the leaders of the House Progressive Caucus. I started to notice her during the last presidential campaign. She was a Bernie supporter and surrogate, and she spoke at several of his rallies. Then I saw her interviewed several times, and she was always on point. She is one to watch, and she is fierce. If she helped hold the progressives in the House together to pass this bill, good on her. She did a good thing for a lot of people who need the help.

    1. @Gabe Dudley Jayapal has been one of the leaders in the House working to raise the minimum wage to $15/hour. There was probably some vote that you’re trying to now make into something it’s not. Don’t bother. Her record on supporting a higher minimum wage is clear.

  4. Corporations are amassing huge control over our economy and politics and fueling widening economic inequality.

  5. It takes the wisdom of the old, and the young people’s energy, seems I heard that before, Glory.

  6. “Sam I am” is a call for a crazy person (who watches that station for… inspiration) to shoot a democrat.
    ? Why hasn’t he been arrested for threatening politicians of America ?
    Oh… that would require a conspiracy.
    Hmm… haven’t we proven that fact ?

  7. …And in other news… A peculiarly high percentage of items on Ebay that were more than $1,400 are now $1,400.

  9. Ah I have sure but this group same have people never see they .see money only ..who. is lie. Who is standard

  10. You made a choice to “support kids” so live with your choice, handle that on your own, people who did not make that choice shouldn’t have to pay taxes to you 🇺🇸

  11. True!!! Progressive Democrat in proud of it lets go at Joe/Kamala full steam ahead! This is for the people this around your doing great!! Just drop the student debt to 30,000 you will be that guy!!!😊

  12. “When exposing a crime is being treated as commiting a crime, you’re being ruled by criminals” – Edward Snowden

    1. @Ellie B. Wake up woman quit being a sheep led too slaughter. You’re being ruled by criminals, better known as Republicans and Democrats. Prove me wrong.

    2. @Ellie B.
      Oh, so you are awake.
      My apologies, I thought you were still sleeping. I’ll make some coffee 😁

    3. @Mr SouthJersey and that dumb@ss Trump pardoned Lil Wayne but not Snowden nor Assange!!! A prophet is given no honour in his own country
