  1. The economy flows with people spending. They can’t spend if they have nothing. This is an emergency and the demand will return when things are more stable, this is simple economics. Not like people are choosing to be out of work, nor were they before either.
    Weird that we spend so much on military equipment that has little use at home, but can’t afford to keep our own citizens fed and housed.

    • @Joyce Mansfield I’m sorry I had to respond because my mama said Nancy pooploski is the devil !

    • The problem is Americans are not spending their stimulus money like they hoped. It may be due to lack of places to go but it’s not stimulating anything right now. Would more checks insure more spending? I don’t know but if it doesn’t life will be extra hard for our children and if we are not careful our grandchildren too.

    • lefties want the economy kept closed, but keep on spending. We’ll just wait until we collapse and the mutts that didn’t plan very well try to take from those who did. That’s why the recent run on guns. ain’t happening.

      Do Republicans underestimated the will of people? Without buying power, no stable economy.

    I’m sorry what? In this bill is a bailout for lobbyists and no regular payments for people or payment of wages to businesses like every other major country is doing, so the American ppl are what, worth bailing out more corrupt institutions?

      You have to support the local governments too but I do agree with you, over here the furlough scheme pays workers 80% of their wages up to £2500 per month plus businesses are being supported but the UK government has been slow to support local authorities who they have cut funding to over 10 years by about 70% so are now in serious trouble, please don’t allow your national government to screw over local government because just like with the lack of support you are suffering it will also be you that suffers from the destruction caused.

      The American people are going to pay for it. It is debt that will be owed by future generations and paid for by present and future taxes.

    We need a GUARANTEED wealth tax to pay for this relief so the bill doesn’t fall on the shrinking middle class.

      I think this virus comes with a form of insanity. Never thought it would take so drastic a toll on the economy and for what?

      Trump doesn’t care about any future stimulus for the people, his family and friends already got their cut of the tax payers money.

      @Dio Putra Nancy pelosi a very smart woman the insanity is people that care more about Donald Trump than they do their own families so go out and bring it home to your family nobody’s really stopping you is not like they got you handcuffed to your bed

      @Teresa S Yes. The government can help their hard working tax paying citizens. However, these puppet politicians prove time and time again, they are driven to benefit only themselves and their corrupt, insatiably money hungry wealthy elite lord and masters. It is glaringly clear, they do not care for “The People”.

      @Carolyn Miller…. How do people get to work when most businesses and jobs are closed? Why do you think millions are unemployed and applying for unemployment benefits? Why don’t you create jobs for all those people whose jobs and work places are closed, since you think you have all the answers………….but don’t know the question.

      E & M Oza : Pelosi: worth 100 millions, at home safe and still collecting her 30k / month congress salary.
      Trump is at the White House working and has donated his president salary since day 1.
      That’s the difference between democrat hypocrite pigs and a true leader.

    • @R. Renovatus your “true leader” makes money from the tax payers playing golf. And holding polital meetings for world leaders at his resorts. And anyway, why should we pay someone to get on tv and be ignorant? Or to go on vacation all the time?

    • Carolyn Miller, first I wish I can work believe me I will give everything and anything to go back to work but if you remember is people out here who got laid off , so please don’t sit here and judge probably is a lot of people like me who doesn’t have job , so next time think before u speak

    • @Petal Poet go support your beloved Nancy Pelosi, get her money for your children in the future. Isolate yourself properly, don’t work, testified yourself everyday.

  7. it went from “we can’t afford health care for all, silly Bernie, how are you going to pay for that? ”
    “here’s 2 trillion, and here’s another 3 trillion”

      Universal healthcare is self funding compared to your system, for what your government spends of medicare and medicaid all other developed nations on Earth provide a universal system. Your system leads to higher costs which then get passed onto tax payers and insurance premiums meaning that the general public loses out as ultimately it is they who pay for both. You only have to look at the condition of physical and mental health in America to see that without a shadow of doubt it’s system does not work. As Albert once say “To do the same thing over and over expecting a different result is the definition of insanity”.

      @A K What you dont think welfare recipients, who are usually the elderly, retired, disabled. You dont think they need help? Most of these recipients live on $700 or less a month. Thats $700 bucks for the entire month to live on if you receive welfare help. While most workers easily make $1000 a week at minimum wage of $7.25 an hour which can equal after 4 weeks $4000 a month. Seems people have no idea of this truth when they say dont help the welfare recipients since its said like they get a lot of money when in truth they get so little.

    • @Stephen Dickens Wow your math is worse than Brian William’s.

  9. We the people do not have the time for political game’s. We should have been looked after in the first stimulus package but only big businesses were. Now we have to wait and let both the Congress and the house to play a political game I hope they all know we will remember this when its time to vote. at a time like this Congress and the house should not see there pay checks till this bill is past. We the people suffer so they can play political duck duck goose.

    • @Bat Boy vote your democrats and your madam Nancy Pelosi, let your children paid in the future. Don’t forget isolate yourself and do nothing, don’t work, testified yourself everyday as she said

      @R. Renovatus Trump has never PROVED that he donated his Pay or WHO he donated to! Receipts! AND Trump has been draining American Taxes to earn $800 a night per room for Secret service and WH staff at his b7g 8nfested dirty hotels! He owes on the Lease of his D.C. Hotel. He owes $500M in BACK TAXES, PLUS INTEREST! You can cry😭 cry cry😭 and all you do is embarrass yourself. There are fewer and fewer Trumpsters and Donnie knows it! This is why he prefers to purge Voters one way nor another!

    • Then let’s be the changed let’s stop supporting all of them crooks with are votes maybe they’ll get are message american people won’t be push over there corporations or there’s wealthy adding more zeros

    • @R. Renovatus I agree that need to clean the white house it’s a crook system

    • well, if something can’t be fixed by spending more on it, Pelosi is stumped.

    They really think these employers want to give Hazard pay when they gotta be forced to increase wages. They’ll keep the extra money & lay off workers same as always.

    Meanwhile in Canada if you lost your job due to the virus you have been getting $2,000/month and back pay if not paid from when they started the payments. Students not qualifying for that money are being helped. On government websites there’s several ways single/married/kids/job loss programs to get money. Our government has been releasing new programs to help everyone! Now they are helping the seniors even though they get government pension or pensions…. hopefully they’ll do the same with disabled Canadians cause staying home to stay safe costs more money when you can’t go out for essentials and you don’t have help.
    Our economy is struggling but not crashing cause our government has been financially helping us from the beginning, knowing that if people have money our economy will keep going to a certain extent.
    The American government could have been doing the same thing for Americans!! They released billions of dollars that was completely pointless and didn’t help the biggest chunk of Americans!
    Leaving it up to companies to pay their workers when their trying to keep their businesses afloat was so stupid!! It’s not guaranteed we will be able to go back to work safely for quite a while! It wasn’t fair to force businesses to pay workers cause they don’t know if they’ll make it!
    You help people and businesses separate cause businesses have already had to close temporarily cause of the virus! They need all their money for bills to stay open!
    The American government has just screwed this up royally! Of course no one is listening to Bernie as usual cause he wanted to do what they are doing here by paying everyone $2,000/month but apparently that’s too much for certain people in the government, they didn’t even want to give the $1,200/month! That’s a pathetic amount and barely covers rent! The government is responsible for the chaos in America currently! Their sinking America and it wasn’t necessary! I’m sorry for Americans, truly I am.

  12. I still don’t know why they are doing bail outs to big companies whose CEOs and high ranking get big paychecks or the fat pension like the fired CEO of AT&T while those who are working minimal wage jobs are dying. Support HEROES? What a propaganda if they want to support the HEROES they would have sent them not only a pay increase but increased the pay sick leave and given them actually PPE instead of waiting for a good to get equipment from CHINA or foriegn import of products. Setting aside money for children 16 or even younger than 17, really? How many 17 year old or 16 year old need 2k or even 1.2k, they don’t even know how to file a taxes or anything. These funds should go to those who need it. We need to invest in the health and education of our people not just giving out money to all these big companies whose CFO and consultants find loopholes and not pay taxes like Amazon while people who are working multiple jobs and support their elderly and community get taxes at high rates….. I hate how they keep on saying HONORING HEROES…. these politicians should get a pay cut for not getting heads on right.

    • What I said was I see him working all day every day and giving his presidential salary to charity. Why am I not aloud to point out a couple of things that he does that are at least noble in effort dang. The way Pelosi has disrespected this president will have lasting affects and that’s my biggest complaint. She is basically teaching a whole generation how to devalue a president. That’s not good for our nation long term. The next president will be disrespected in similar ways because it’s now acceptable. It wont matter what party they are from or who they are.

    • @Keith Haren That’s kinda true.

    There are people who used the IRS “where’s my payment “ portal on April 15th who pretty much fell through the cracks. Never got their direct deposits. They are being called the “Forgotten 15thers”. This is their petition. CNN covered this story as well.

  14. Our bills are pilling up while our government debates whether to give us money or not. When the economy fully restarts we’re all going to have more than 3 months of bills to catch up on, IN ADDITION to our new bills. The fallout will be massive.

    • william davidson | May 13, 2020 at 5:38 PM | Reply

      Yes and our tax bills will go up to pay for all this stimulus.

    • @william davidson As opposed to having no money now, unpaid bills piling up, and possibly being homeless once the rent collectors can resume evictions.
      You can’t expect an ideal situation in a pandemic like this.

      @Tim Erwin The obvious solution is to restart business Now

    • @william davidson Which is going to start a massive second outbreak since we handled the first lockdown so poorly. Having to lockdown again for even longer will cripple the economy more than it had to be.

    • william davidson | May 13, 2020 at 5:54 PM | Reply

      @Tim Erwin The shutdown was to “flatten the curve” we did that and hospitals are empty. The virus will run through the population sooner or later no matter what. BTW I just turned 91 and had open heart surgery a few years ago. Why should we ruin my children and grandchildren’s lives so I might get another year or two
