    • Funny how the only people who made that assumption were Democrats.

      @Holly Baker You are so full of it that it is pathetic. They moved to China not because of taxation which using loopholes they paid very little, and in some cases none. They moved to China for cheap labor and cheap materials, because they want to maximize profits. The cost of shipping those products back to the US probably is about what they paid in taxes. Remember when George Bush gave the oil companies all those windfall tax cuts and we got $4 a gallon gas? Giving them more money does not make them have empathy for their employees. It only makes them greedier. Trump claimed he would not touch Soc. Sec. or Medicare and Medicaid. Yet he tried to get rid of Obama Care which included Medicaid expansion to the states that chose to take advantage of it so the indigent could get healthcare. Now I hear that Dirty Don is proposing a budget to cut Soc. Sec. and Medicare/Medicaid in order to make up for some of the huge losses to the treasury due to his windfall tax cuts for the rich/corporations while dramatically increasing military spending at a time when there are no major wars. Common sense and cognitive thinking? I think you have none. All republicans do is run up huge debt and loot the US treasury for themselves while lying to the people that they do not have to pay taxes for all the benefits they get. Then after the debt gets so ballooned they go about to use it as an excuse to cut those benefits. Ever find a republican that wants the common laborer to get a living wage? Didn’t think so. But they never get enough.

      @Holly Baker Let me guess you get your news from Fake Fox. My neighbor gets his news from Fox and told me the other day that the Virus thing was about over and they said more people were getting the virus staying home in isolation than were getting it going out. I went home and heard on the real news that there were 700 more confirmed cases in the state of Louisiana that day. I guess the Trump sunshine shines right down his idolaters throats where the disinfectants can’t reach and kills the virus. Just go out in 90 degree weather with your mouth open facing the heavens for a day or two. If you swallow a little bird droppings it will only sweeten the other BS that you been consuming from the Lying One and Fox. What I remember is WITNESSING Trump saying the Virus was no big deal. It was like the flu and some people didn’t get sick and could even go to work with it. There was only 15 cases thanks to his great response and very soon those cases would be down to zero. I guess the pretender Chosen One of God forgot to consult with his false prophet. 90,000 deaths and increasing. Instead of the great lord that saved the church and the nation, the pretender Chosen One of God brought pestilence and death. Who would have thought?

      @Zed Cartwright you just described your CORRUPT lying thieving demorats.
      Pelosi herself said “come to Chinatown
      Its safe” ! 🤭 it’s a fact that Pelosi and her scummys have dealings in china and china makes billions on us and we still pay them millions on top of that because they r considered a developing nation! Right they more developed than we are because the demorats want to give them sooooo much free money and let them make all our drugs! Can u imagine me making your drugs!!🤣 why on earth would anyone( a demorat) give them so much control wen they have proven that they are not always friends? Hmm🤔
      I’d rather my PRESIDENT shake chinas PRESIDENT hand get to know him negotiate with him with fairness than give them free money .Too bad your rampant coyotes you vote for that has american blood on their mangy snouts dont know how to stop spending our money. That’s all ya guys no how to do. Give to all no matter wat unless you rich then you get nothing.. how does that concept even work . We are HUMAN BEINGS we are not perfect we are emotional we are evil👇
      We are liars we are greedy etc….why would people work for government to take and distribute to wat? Other currupt government like the govenor Cuomo . Get ur facts right bud, it was govenor Cuomo that stated 66 % of ny had been confirmed with virus while staying at home. Lol..I cant believe you idiots dont even respect yourself enuff to watch anything else besides your BRAINWASHED FAKE NEWS. You look like MORONS SERIOUSLY.
      Trump never said he wasnt touching “affordable healthcare ” you so ignorant. That was 1 of the things he campaigned with!🤣 you know nothing of it. But I do .Obama did nothing but put us into debt way further by giving anybody snap and medical. Now listen dont block the truth from your little brain. The people that truly needed, like single parents that could only work a certain amount of hrs , not 30 yr old Bob down the road living off his parents too lazy to work.
      So can you do your cognitive thinking skills and tell me wat the result of this was? They cut our snap and medical. Good ol Bob that had no restrictions on working CHOSE not to work cause he get free stuff so he ok took from families with children. Cut services to our medical.. OUR PRESIDENT TRUMP is not cutting from social security checks. Medicare he is cutting from wat the healthcare field charges. So yes hopefully wont hurt my momma and poppa and other senior citizens too much. We can thank OBAMA for that! He really showed he was for the poor and vulnerable !!😁 The best was wen we got fined 750 a yr for the plan not being affordable!☺🖕. I made 22000 that yr , my lowest plan they could offer was 250? With a 200000 deductible? Hahaha. After my Bill’s which was only Bill’s to live no extra I had 300 for the month. Thank again Obama. And 1 more thing about our dear Obama….he signed a bill in 2013 that allows media to propaganda!!! is a liar and will be taking that mofo lie off the internet. 😎 You have based your values and beliefs on LIES. ….have a great evening!

  3. We don’t have a president. How can we have a Marshall plan?

  4. It’s over. The World is recovering and America is dying.

      @Ash Roskell just by reading the way someone types and the words they use can tell you a lot …if your smart enough to read between the lines ..I don’t care who you support but if you’re not a brainwashed liberal you sure sound like one ..and the way you throw out words like boy and son just tell me you probably barely finished high school and if you were in the service it was only to obtain free lifelong benefits…an old bitter and not too bright liberal moron is what you sound like and remember *LIBERALS VOTE BY USING THEIR EMOTIONS AND FEELINGS WHILE CONSERVATIVES VOTE BY THINKING AND USING COMMON SENSE* poor pathetic washed up old man lmfao

      @Diana Hulstine actually obama is being revealed in new documents as being a criminal who abused his power by directing the FBI to investigate general Micheal Flynn when there was no basis for it …that’s a liar and a traitor and I think even former Presidents like him should be tried for proven treason carries the death penalty so I think they use a firing squad but in obama’s special case I have an old jump rope I don’t use anymore I could donate that maybe?

      It’s both cheaper and better. Every other rich country has universal health care, at an average cost of half A,erica’s broken system and with much better health outcomes. America’s maternal and infant mortality are disgraceful. Life expectancy is lower than most other rich countries, too.

      @Kenny Scivally highest unemployment rate may nothing to rave about when one person has to work at 3 minimum wage jobs in order to pay rent and buy food. If the unemployment rate was genuine and reflects real, susttainable work, there would not be such a tremendously long line up to receive free food. People would have lots of savings. Also, the stock market is no proof of the wealth of a country, but the number of homeless people is. The USA has a tremendous number of them. So it’s not really a rich country.

    • Kenny Scivally | May 10, 2020 at 9:40 PM | Reply

      @philomena phanthagia yes it is a rich country ..the richest on earth but you must have enough sense to realize that doesn’t mean *EVERYONE is rich* and you are being misleading because there were *NO* long lines to get food *BEFORE the coronavirus* Plus if you have to work 3 jobs that’s probably because either you didn’t finish your education *OR* you are a *illegal immigrant* same goes for savings ..but the jobs WERE there to get so *DON’T try to tie the way things are economically RIGHT NOW to the way things were BEFORE CORONAVIRUS* it is very deceptive for you to try to do that

    • Diana Hulstine | May 11, 2020 at 2:16 AM | Reply

      @Kenny Scivally all thanks to President Barack Obama hard work and intelligence that traitor trump tries to take credit for. Trump is a fat lazy lying pig that has done nothing but break laws low and will steal every time we have

  10. The difference between now and then is that we had good, competent people leading the way who understood the big picture. What we have now are a bunch of day traders who are so morally depraved and are delusional as they are stupid, frothing at the mouth with lies and with dollar signs in their eyes. If Trump had been president during World War II, we’d all be speaking German and Japanese now.

    • @Army of Gog I know what you are talking about, Winston was not a perfect person by any stretch. But he was very determined not to let Hitler have England. He loved his country. I’m not convince that there’s an ounce of that in Trump, plus he’s a pig and a tool.

      I think “packed” is an exaggeration. There are worryingly many, of them, though. Generally the Americans (which I’m not) are great people, even many of those mislead Trumpians. Some people are just naive about politics, although they may be clever and wise in some other ways,

  15. A healthy nation is a wealthy nation, start by Health system for all, increase low wage, give a roof for the homeless, give the people a sense of pride. Stop war mongering ! Tax the billionaires. America will be a great nation again.

    The only reason we are going through this so badly is we have a totally inept president. We have to weather the virus first. Then tackle the economy and he doesn’t seem to understand that. He does not have the mental capacity to deal with any of it.

  18. What America needs is MSNBC to stop parroting lies and misleading the people.

  19. trump and his people will have to be gone before smart people get a hold on this pandemic.
