    the govt giving us the crumbs of our own money….what a joke….

    • @Dixie Patriot exactly they were arguing about getting raises which is why they could never agree or get to the stimulus checks or unemployment.

    • I think it’s rather amusing that you think that it’s “your” money. There isn’t any “your” money. It’s just borrowed money added to the $27 trillion dollar deficit. Your grandchildren will thank you for that someday.

    • what money truth be told America the great has fallen just walk of the job gone happen any way

  2. If you need $600, $600 will not help you.

    • @Arnold Wayne Take care of the economy?? Holy mother….government intervention?…no free market economy action going on? Gee….hmm….what’s that sound like? Starts with an S. Gearhead’s for hammers and sickles too?

    • ​@Arnold Wayne You sure are wordy for a mechanic. Doesn’t hold water. Apple phones? Technical whaaaa? Okay, I don’t pick on autistic kids. You’re harmless. I’m out.

    • @Eigono Kyoushi lol… ok real cute.

    • @Eigono Kyoushi I know a secret that you don’t. Ask me what’s the secret?

    • @Eigono Kyoushi well I’ll just tell you. That’s not her plane you found there -> Amelia Earhart(); she never crashed.

  3. Ridiculous these thugs are in goverment. More help?😂😂😂😂

  4. Drove millions of people below the poverty line by stalling aid month after month then after 6 months when they do pass something its 600 bucks and non retroactive unemployment. Now the politicians are looking for a pat on the back and the media is feeding into it . Shame

  5. Working Essential Working 🐜, unemployed 🐜 get crumbs, while the 1% and large corporations get larger tax breaks!!!

    • Michael Coffee | December 21, 2020 at 3:31 PM | Reply

      Agreed. Abolish all coercive taking by the government.

    • B Lewis And when the 🐜 decide they want more than crumbs, they figure out a way to earn more. How? By furthering ones education, starting a company of their own, building a better mousetrap, etc. If everyone who complains about money would focus that negative energy into their own success, they will be rewarded handsomely. If they don’t work hard for change, nothing will change. I was fed up with low wages in my 20’s and did something about it. I agree with you regarding front line workers and that’s why I have paid every single employee their full time salary regardless of time worked during this crapdemic. Also, everyone received larger-than-normal bonuses this year and I don’t mind telling you it has taken its toll on the company. So, yes! My accountants are taking advantage of every legal tax deduction they can find and every possible subsidy available. It’s not all for my yacht mooring fees, or aircraft overhaul expenses. You should try life in the 1%, and stop wasting energy complaining about something you know nothing about.

    • @Gary Golfer I’m fine, but my fellow chatters are suffering financially and need help now!!!

    • Stop paying taxes!

  6. Left, right, center. Doesn’t matter. We should all together protest these CORRUPT officials. Maddening to see them doll out all this money to government programs, special interest groups, big businesses. When do we put a stop to it?!

  7. I didn’t even get the first check and I don’t think $600 is going to help with back house payments food and essentials!

    • @Michelle That was a typo, I had the years wrong. I was not claimed as a dependent in 2019, but I was in 2018. I called the IRS and they told me I was entitled to it, but didn’t receive it because of my tax refund being delayed until July 2020. I can still claim it on the next tax refund though. Would have been pretty nice if I got that when everyone else did.

    • @Egon Pax excuse me but I get SS and don’t file a return and I did apply for the stimulus money they just didn’t send me one.

    • I finally got mine dont know how you didn’t get one

    • I’m on my 3rd check

    • @GOD719 must be nice not sure how you got 2.

  8. The only thing they are crushing is our economy.

  9. You need a Tic Tac | December 21, 2020 at 1:43 PM | Reply

    $600 is an utter insult to the American people….

    • @GOD719 Trump wanted 2k but he’s orange so he’s bad

    • Trump wanted 2k

    • @Mewtwo the Prankster The American 🏃😱people that voted Democratic don’t be mad🤝🏽U haven’t seen the worst in layoff 🤔 yet. We the people in order to form a more perfect government bla bla bla Sh** I forgot the rest 🤔uhm

      Our world famous Prime Minister Narendra Modi till now didn’t give any single rupee to all Indian people through central government. Our Tamilnadu government gave Rs.1000/-(just 13.5 $) once in this 9 month corona virus and 10 kg rice every month to the poor, but this rice is given past several years, that is not new. You are blessed, because you have Jesus as Lord and WE TRUST IN GOD. This is your success. God bless America and India too.

    • @Mewtwo the Prankster dont take “the crumbs” then. pretty simple. unfortunately that is what we’re getting.

  10. Pharma means mass murder. Parties no longer relevant.

  11. When your only tool is a hammer, every problem looks like a nail.

  12. Reading the comments I found a great one at the bottom: 9 months of pandemic since the last stimulus and the gov gives us 600$, that is less then 67$ a month!….gov officials have lunches (daily) worth 67$ at taxpayers expense let that sink in……

    • Also 600 ÷ by 9 months since they last voted for the 1rst stimulus (March 11th) = 66.6
      shows just who they work for. They keep dangling this over our heads so we’re emotionally invested in their help. They are conditioning you to accept the great reset. Never be too anxious for anything

    • @Host Mo Berry true I just rounded up…didn’t want to bring the legendary divorce into this.

  13. Corrupt Politicians are worse than virus! They crushed our small business why their bank accounts grew with ill gotten gains!! Drain that swamp…

    $600 is no relief at all it’s not even enough to pay rent how government should be ashamed of itself a failed us when we need them the most

    • Also, 600 ÷ by 9 months since they last voted for the 1rst stimulus (March 11th) = 66.6

    • @Hart Reeder Because Americans are the one paying taxes? What type of question is that? It’s our stolen money that the government thinks it’s theirs.

    • We never need government. Government needs us to pay for the things they want.

    • @Brandon Thomas Trump wanted 2k per person

    • @IrelandVonVicious taxes should be 0% next year for any American making less than 200k. Maybe the government will learn to budget like an average American

    I hope this makes people realize how out of control our gov has gotten, we gave them this power in our best interest. People in authority will mistreat and abuse every power we give them!

    600$ dollars really we all need more then that to payoff bills.

  17. They’re so wealthy, they’ve never had to buy food for themselves.

    Casting crumbs to the peasants. “Sir, may I have more?” 🤲

  19. America is about to get another revolution… Pitch forks and death sentences are next…

  20. Socialism for the rich, rugged individualism for the poor.
