  1. You have to seriously question ‘Christians’ who choose to deny health care to the poor.

    • @Joe We always try and push. But the Progressives throw it all away and don’t worry about the consequences approach historically causes far more problems than it can solve. We just can’t push reset on 300 million lives.

    • @SPZ Aruba what’s your solution?

    • @Joe Subsesize secondary manufacturing for US drugs past trademark, like insulin. Limit medical litigation to actual damages and force insurance companies to reduce malpractice insurance on doctors and hospitals. See where that goes.

    • @SPZ Aruba agreed…..big pharma is having a field day

      @Thomas Armsworthy Jr Good job “umbrella man”… That was most ignorant and uneducated thing I have ever heard!!

    Richest country in the world treating their citizens like third world

  3. The GOP is incapable of governing. The fox is guarding the chicken coop.

    • The Senate renegotiated 2 times and put its foot down on 3. Tell Pelosi to say something other than no. At this point I think she’s killing it just for the headline.

    • Forrest Trump | August 4, 2020 at 6:40 PM | Reply


    • @Forrest Trump The Senate did the HEALS Act (that’s the Senate version) in July and passed a negotiated plan again last week. Pelosi resubmitted her unchanged plan. Facts DO matter.

  4. What gets me is at the very bottom line, the Republicans are hurting their own constituents who will in turn continue voting for them. What is that?

      @snoop alert We know Trump supporters hate the idea of secure elections. Yes, there was money for election security. Trump has admitted that republicans can’t win a fair election. 6.3 million is fine with me to ensure every vote is counted.

    • @Brother Sanguinary do you hear that wind whistling it’s going right through your ears, why do Democrats need to hide election security in a covid-19 bill,
      And by the way it wasn’t Republicans that tried to rig the last election, and you know it

      @snoop alert Why do Trumpsters need to hide $250B for F35 Fighters in a $1T Covid-19 Bill, Sergei?

      snoop alert Why did McConnell put in his bill that you cannot sue any business or doctor? They ALL do it! Why do you think these bills are 1800 pages? Don’t try and call out one without putting in the other!

    • ღSwnsasyღ _ | August 4, 2020 at 7:44 PM | Reply

      I never understood that either. Kentucky is one of the poorest States with the highest number of Cancer deaths in this country yet McConnell is still ahead in the polls.. This is what happens when you over fund the military and police and defund education.. This is why America is at the bottom when it comes to education 😒

    Tis the time the government for the people bail it’s people out. The wealthy have enough and the poor have nothing to lose. I’d advise the politicians to stop pampering the rich and take care of the working class or the poor will consume the rich. these are dire times. You better hurry your wealth will vanish quickly if you don’t. You’re on the verge of a war that the rich do not have the numbers to compete.

      A peasant uprising? Yeah, those always work out so well…

    • William Watts | August 4, 2020 at 6:36 PM | Reply

      @Highway Star You are uneducated and chances are broke and live with your parents so you’re too stupid to talk to me. Go get a job loser.

    • @Highway Star YOu misunderstand, it will be a pleasant uprising, very civil. We’ll ask them nicely one more time and then…

    Isn,t there anything in the constitution to get rid of Trump .What about accountability of the Republicans.They are going to sit back and destroy people’s lives and throw the economy into a depression .What a horror with no accountability 🙏🏼🇺🇸😷😷😷😷😷😷😷😷😷😷😷😷💪❤️

  9. The Republicans don’t want the people on the ropes, they want them in the graves.

  10. Come on people the streets ain’t that bad it will be fun sleeping out in the moonlight oh don’t forget to vote republiklan we need more of those nazi’s running our country right right

    This is why the country must be updated with new true representatives of the people we’re tired of these politicians in the white house 😴

    Billions of dollars are being allocated for a FBI building meanwhile thousands of americans suffer in the streets smh

    • Positive Vibes-Relaxing Music -Don’t forget, the space launch that was absolutely necessary during a pandemic and national decay 😒.

  13. How about helping disabled and Social Security recipients also? They need extra help to support families with job loss especially with partners that work in 1099 jobs with no UI benefits…

  14. There was a crooked man who led a crooked life.
    He was a crooked husband with a somewhat crooked wife.
    He had some crooked children and son-in-law–a louse.
    And they divided this great nation from their White and crooked House…

    The American dream is dead, the American nightmare has only just begun.

  16. Trump: What about me, this is all happening to meeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee

  17. Nikki Di Santo | August 5, 2020 at 12:39 AM | Reply

    This is heartbreaking

  18. No more free stuff for anyone! Free stuff makes everyone poorer. Printing money from thin air is unsustainable.

  20. This is so gross. If they evict all these people, I hope the rooms don’t get filled and the companies go belly up. Such crap. I bet those companies doing the evicting got PPP loans
