    • @Lana Kahl HOW MUCH EXTRA MONEY DOES $600 a week provide over there normal paycheck in the US? OVER 25 million unemployed in the US

      In 14 states its below there normal pay by as much as 10%
      In 15 states it’s over 10% of there normal pay

      The remainder of states at or slightly above normal wage … maybe $10 a day

    February 25th – “We’re very close to a vaccine”
    February 26th – “We have 15 cases and within a couple of days that’s going to be down close to zero so that’s a pretty good job we’ve done”
    February 26th – “The infection seems to have gone down over the last 2 days. We’re going to be at 5 people pretty soon. And we could be at just 1 or 2 people over the next short period of time”
    February 28th – “This is the democrats new hoax”
    March 6th – “It’s going to go away, hopefully at the end of the month”
    March 11th – “We’re more prepared to fight the virus than any other country. The virus doesn’t stand a chance against us”
    March 13th – “I don’t take responsibility at all”
    March 16th – “I rate my handling of the outbreak as a 10 out of 10”
    March 24th – “We never shut the country down for flu”
    April 10th – “I looks as though we’ll only have 60,000 deaths, which is substantially lower than what any of the scientists thought”

    April 23rd – “We have one of the lowest mortality rates in the world”

    May 21st – “When we have a lot of cases, I don’t look at that as a bad thing. I look at it as a good thing because it means our testing is much better. So I view it as a badge of honour. Really, it’s a badge of honour”

      @sevecn yai pit it all on the dems? All I said was unemployed people not getting money this week is on Pelosi. Blame Republicans and Trump for everything in the world even if you stub your toe next week but the reason anyone unemployed in the US won’t get the additional 600 THIS WEEK is because of the DEMOCRATS. period.

    • @thenspeakonit do you know what the Republicans wanted included in that relief? Both sides are flawed, however Trump and his buddies are at the helms. They are ultimately responsible if they cannnot compromise and strike a deal without cheating the people or the system!

      Why does everyone play the blame game if neither side wants to negotiate with one another?

    • Jeffrey Photonboy | August 4, 2020 at 12:19 AM | Reply

      @RIVER RAT ,
      Do you even know what “Socialism” means? I bet you don’t. No country is completely Socialist or Capitalist or Communist. To over-simplify Socialism is a redistribution of money. Insurance is an example of how Socialism works. In your theoretical, perfect “Capitalist” society you would have no insurance for cars or health care. No Sir, no need to give anybody thousands of dollars a year on the off chance something happens you just pay out a million dollars if you get into an accident…
      Also, when big corporations get TAX CUTS that is effectively a transfer of wealth from all the other tax payers who didn’t benefit. That’s a Socialist act… and here’s a silly thought, if only we had some sort of SAFETY NET (gasp! Socialism!) so we could have more easily shut down businesses and did the things we need to do to get running again!
      The argument that “Socialism is Bad” but “Capitalism is good” is nothing more than a demonstration of the Dunning-Kruger Effect. In other words you think you know what you’re talking about but you know so little about the socio-political workings that you’re comparable to a 1st year high-school Physics student thinking he’s discovered a flaw in the General Theory of Relativity.

    • I know they made the price .we didn’t ask for it .so now they want to call us lazy.the American people are not lazy .they didn’t even have any proof of this .i made this comment for the people. Because i can’t and have not drawed any of that 600.00 dallors. I don’t qualify but thats ok .i work for myself.and had none of the papers i needed so i just didin worry about it . But i have read alot of there comments and i know they really need help they have no jobs because of that virus. I hope they can see it in there hearts to pass something and help them.

    • Classic communism. People in power are living the good life while the rest of the population are dirt poor. Sounds like N.Korea. America turtning into a communist country.

    “MAGA” = Making my pockets fatter off the American tax payers
    “Nobody knew” = Everyone knew except me
    “Huge” = moderate to below average in size

    “Policy Briefing” = Watching Fox News

    It is actually very simple to explain. Republicans don’t care about Americans.

    • Ichijo Festival | August 4, 2020 at 12:09 AM | Reply

      Agree with the sentiment, perhaps with the caveat of “other* Americans,” since conservatives are characteristically short-sighted, only concerned with what affects them or their immediate social circle.

      Then again, I’d also take it a step farther and say “Republicans don’t solve problems. They just try to profit off them.”
