  1. Ok, so we’re not getting 2,000 dollars, then? Thanks, Mitch.

  2. McConnell blocking a move that would help countless people? I’m truly shocked. Vote Georgians!

      @Ben Lancaster republican senators don’t agree to anything unless there’s something in it for them. Democrats want the increase in the bill and republicans always have strings attached. Nothing new. Those strings have consequences that are never for the good of Americans.

      @Kamalla Hairass I guess you haven’t noticed or you just don’t care, some people don’t have a job right now through no fault of their own. Some people who do work and pay taxes all their lives need help right now. What a selfish piece of crap you are!

      I’ve never relied on others putting money in my hands. That’s why I started my own business and I pay myself whatever I want. But I had a father growing up so…

    • Everyday another lie from Trump when it comes to his administration helping Americans via this Covid19 crises. Sickening.

      @Remey Momma The Democrats lied to America so much about Russia “stealing” the 2016 election that HALF of Americans no longer believe anything they say…🇨🇳😷😷😷😷😷

    • @Thomas Armsworthy Jr regardless of what they spend it on, they spend it and inject it into the economy, and that is the REAL goal of the stimulus checks…the help the people, but to help the economy. With so many out of jobs right now the economy is suffering and could collapse, mitch is obviously NOT thinking of the US at all. One not thinking of the people it helps, but the economy it helps either. Then again republicans think trickle down works, and it never has…the only method that works is gather up…give the money to the lower income and let the companies produce goods an services they need and they will gather it up because the lower income will spend it like there is no tomorrow. They just need something to spend it on. Give it to the rich and they hoard it.

    • @#NOTMYPRESIDENT #RESIST you meant to say Trump lies so much right?

  4. Flip the senate Georgia!

  5. Georgia, you know what to do. Take McConnell’s power and watch him go back inside his shell

  6. He needs to be kicked out of that office..

  7. Mitch McConnell: selfless (LOL) work for suffering billionaire class for too many years. Kick him out.

    McConnell is just trying to create cover for his coward Republicans from having to vote against the $2,000.

  10. This is a power play, that affects the life of people.

  11. Wealthy corporations need help.
    No problem.
    Struggling Americans need help.
    Are you kidding? Where we gonna get the money.

  12. Moscow Mitch : “The MIllionaire and Billionaire’s Best Friend”

  13. McConnell have no Shame!!!, And zero compassion!!!, He truly is a Russian bot!!!

  14. Why does the American people aways , have to be in the middle of a political power struggle???

  15. Mitch and most of the GOP care nothing about the American people.

  16. Wealthy politicians playing games with people’s lives. It’s outrageous.

  17. “They have money for war . But can’t feed the poor “..


    • @#NOTMYPRESIDENT #RESIST 🤣🤣🤣🤣 The REPUBLICANS and Trump are America’s worst enemy . I think you went to Trump’s University- Trump’s warped politics has infected too many Americans. An educated person will know that it’s idiotic to blame rioting on democrats . There is nothing vaccinating about America’s tainted and blood filled history . Any fool can read and understand it ..

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

      @Oxford Hall Actually. Communist China is America’s worst enemy. Their virus killed 300,000 Americans this year and the Democrats used it to commit mail in election Fraud.🇨🇳🦠💀💀💀💀

    • @#NOTMYPRESIDENT #RESIST Trump killed thousands of Americans by being a Covidiot – downplaying the virus and having super spreader rallies .. Beside, he kissed China’s behind and asked them to help him win the election. When they didn’t he turned on them . What a traitor !!

      @Oxford Hall China killed 300,000 Americans with their virus. Joe Biden used it to shut down our economy and create a mail in election.

  18. Mitch McConnell is the reason why Georgia needs to truly come through by voting Osoff and Warnock into the senate.

  19. Son of a mitch mconnel’s tatics to get his bills and agenda passed are pure criminal and evil.
