  1. Last time I was this early, we still had a democracy.

  2. A bunch of sociopath making political games of people misery.

    • @House Majority
      I happen to live in the most stable democracy on this planet because we teach our pupils that being interested in politics is their duty. And there are no situations or circumstances in which talking about politics is inappropriate. We do it always and everywhere.
      As everyone should.

    • Yes, Mark but who do you spot a “Psychopath”? I mean they normally over achievers, they either beautiful or handsome. They have all the right answers, but they no empathy for others. So how do spot the next Ted Bundy or Donald Trump? Simple “Psychopath” cannot say I’m sorry, they also cannot admit they made a mistake. So next time a person running for office force them to admit to a mistake, and ask if their were sorry. If they can’t even admit have made a mistake in their lives don’t vote for him or her.

      They are causing your misery.πŸ‡¨πŸ‡³πŸ˜·πŸ˜·πŸ˜·πŸ˜·πŸ˜·πŸ˜·πŸ˜·πŸ˜·

    • Nothing new here.

  3. All this is just another act.
    This is just totally un-American BS.
    We need to clean house.

    • ITS TIME.. just doing MY part…….. eMail these TRAITOR’S !!!!!!!

    • We just had the election and we didn’t clean house except in the AZ and CO senate pick ups.

    • Our Country has a Crazy figurehead named tRump but the other tyrant is Moscow Turkey Neck Mitch. He’s King of the USA all GOP Senators do as he says not their constituents need.

    • @jamesmed4 OTay here is your hero

    • @jamesmed4 ‘Something is rotten in the state(s) of….. US’. No doubt about it. In the end a great part of it comes down to the misuse of an outdated constitution and election model which allows all kinds of anti-democratic measures by – to be clear – political criminals, who basically don’t care one cent for DEMOCRACY as the basis for who gets the power to govern the country. This is how one of the big parties has developed for many years now. And with a number of bad apples in the other party too one must admit. Will be a long and dangerous haul to get the US back on the track to democracy. Will take decades. And plain fascism is lurking on the sidewalk all the way. A dystopic vision? Not to me. But first step is to get rid of the Russian backed Trump. A long journey begins with one step, it has been said. So let’s hope this one STEP is taken in the beginning of the year 2021. πŸŽ†

  5. Repubs going back to the Fiscal Responsibility BS!

  6. GA come on we are all looking at you to finish this man

    McConnell and Trump: two peas in a pod.

  8. McConnell knows how to stop all legislative progress while pretending to be rational. That pretense, however, has worn very, very thin.

  9. Stop saying, β€œCongress can’t get its act together.” Accurately report, Republicans block everything that helps the middle class.

  10. I can’t ever feel any kind of pity for mitch.

      @David Combs You better be careful with your big mouth. Where I live in the South you’ll get shot for putting your hands on the wrong person…

    • @#NOTMYPRESIDENT #RESIST I got enough balls to use my own name, but you got to hide behind a fake name. That’s a Wimp.

    • For the next 8 years vote blue big and early in every race in every state. Purge out the GOP with your vote. Simple.

      @Remey Momma If these Democrats take over and do to America what they have done to our cities, there won’t be anything left to vote for…πŸ‡¨πŸ‡³πŸ˜·πŸ˜·πŸ˜·πŸ˜·πŸ˜·πŸ˜·πŸ˜·πŸ˜·

    • Hey the Democrats ain’t off the hook they voted for that $600 per American they’re just agreeing with that $2,000 a person cuz they want to win the popularity contest

  11. Moscow Mitch: “I got mine, my rich friends (who own me) got theirs, soooo…” (double finger to America)

    Republicans have lost most of, if not, all of their credibility after this.

    • @Engage360 I’ll click on your link but first you need to do me a favor.

    • ITS TIME just doing MY part…….. eMail these TRAITOR’S !!!!!!!

      @Rodney Reyes they’re pathetic

    • @Ben Lancaster my point remains the same. Mitch Mcconnell is playing with the American people. Period! No strings need to be attached (his strings relate to big corporate buy in). If it was his family on the line or his personal lively hood. He would pass the bill.

      $2K is reasonable for the very people who keep this country running. Especially since we just dropped billions into fortune 500 and 100 companies with the PPP.

      It amazes me how people are so unaware unless your an entrepreneur and/or small business the amount of wasted money that went to the rich with the PPP… But are acting like $2K is a big deal for the american people.

    • @Candace H but strings attached to the $600 bill are ok?
      You must support Pakistan gender studies
      But you think eliminating slander protection for social media is bad?
      You think election fraud is ok and shouldn’t be investigated?

  13. Russian bounty on US soldiers – says nothing
    Russian hacking – says nothing
    give back Americans $2000 – Mitch says “hold on, let’s pump the brakes”

  14. McConnell has too much power. He has litterly, blocked almost everything congress has sent to the senate to be voted on. This has been going on for 12 years.

    • @Yasin Hassenbey I like his spelling better as it has the scent of garbage in it.

    • So what he has been doing that since President Clinton. If want you have to after his base.

    • No it’s been going on for 40 years he has gained tooooo much power
      How he sleeps at night ,no conscient heart

    • @Maria Sciulli No Maria, what has happen is that since the 1970’s the after President Richard Nixon was deposed. The Republican party has slowly and surely destroyed the Democratic base with “Free Trade”. This transferred all manufacturing to China and killed all the unions that support Democratic party.

  15. Knew McConnell would blow this up, he doesn’t care if we live or die.

      @– If Democrats take over it will basically be Soviet Russia and we all know how that went over…πŸ’€πŸ’€πŸ’€πŸ’€πŸ’€πŸ’€

    • @Elmosweed You need to understand Elmo, their is no American Left anymore. The Republican have destroyed it when the shipped all the manufacturing jobs overseas with “Free Trade”. I’m show me a person that a “Socialist”?

    • @Marc Temura Elmo’s Hope is that Biden will keep the promise of bringing jobs back to America.
      Tax the πŸ’© out of corporations that ship products into the Country.
      Then give Tax incentives to corporations shipping products out.

    • @Elmosweed That will happen but not for the migration, war, and catastrophe. So by 2025 by first their is normally an existential crisis first, before people are willing to make an inner change.

    • @Elmosweed Here listen to this video on high taxes.

  16. He doesn’t care for Americans going hungry.he should be out in his seat.

    • ​@Generalissimo Donald Trump This isn’t a republic, or a democracy for that matter. It’s a corporate plutocracy. This is largely thanks to Republicans and some corporate Democrats. Let’s look at a true democracy, like Norway, for example. They have significantly lower poverty, infant mortality, and murder rates. They have a much happier workforce which is largely protected by unions, a much higher GDP per person, 8 weeks paid vacation per year, paid paternal leave, free health care, free higher education, financial security for seniors, and their average personal tax rate is only 1.52% higher than ours. You know, basic things that right-wing politicians and media have convinced America are the equivalent to Venezuela or communism. Republicans are not for the working class, they’re for the top 1%. If Nordic countries have taught us anything, it’s that a social democracy works… which is why we need to elect social Democrats, like Bernie Sanders, AOC, Warren, etc.

    • @#NOTMYPRESIDENT #RESIST wow, you sound like a bigot…

    • πŸ™πŸ’―πŸ‘

    • @#NOTMYPRESIDENT #RESIST those welfare Queens they’re about thick as a bowl of oatmeal

  17. It’s not “you, Congress, can’t get it together”; it’s you, Moscow Mitch, are single-handedly obstructing everything.

    • Mitch wants Loeffler and Perdue to win and thus retain (R) control of the Senate. If L & P vote against $2K checks, they might lose. Mitch’s taking heat for blocking a floor vote so that they can announce that they’re in favor of such without ever backing it up with “Yes” votes. If it came up for vote and it was close, they’d have to vote “No”.

  18. Long as Moscow Mitch got his white envelope filled with Benjamins that’s all he cares about

  19. He got his tax cut. That’s all he cares about.

    McConnell has been doing this for year. Holding bills, and the blaming others for the bill not passing. Georgia Vote Blue
