Rep. Katie Porter: If PPP Isn’t Working, ‘Allocate That $100B Elsewhere’ | Stephanie Ruhle | MSNBC


    1. @Doris Rivers if the Democrats got it then the administration should be very transparent with where it goes to expose them…just following your logic…

    2. *Obama Escalates His War On Prosperity*
      April 2016

      NOT SINCE the New Deal’s heyday in the 1930s has Washington waged such an unrelenting assault against the private sector. Both times the result has been the same: a severely underperforming economy.

      The Obama Administration has let it be known that the White House and the regulatory agencies will be issuing a blizzard of new rules and decrees in the waning months of his miserable regime. These will affect overtime, unionization, the environment and finance, among other areas, thereby hobbling enterprise even more.

      Bernie Sanders calls himself a socialist. Obama has been practicing this misbegotten creed for more than seven years. The President long ago grasped that you don’t have to seize the means of production; you simply smother companies and industries with rules and regulations–preferably vaguely written to give bureaucrats wide discretion–so they survive only at your sufferance.

      Banks have been reduced to the role of utilities. One group victimized has been small and new businesses, which have been starved of reasonable and reliable lines of credit since Obama took office. Hospitals and health insurers know who their real customer is these days–Big Government, not the patient. The EPA’s jihad against fossil fuels is well-known. Even the Internet hasn’t been spared, as the FCC, a supposedly independent agency, has meekly followed White House orders to hit the Net with 1930s’ rotary-phone-style regulations. This maneuver was illegal and will continue to suffocate new investment until the courts can adjudicate the matter.

    3. Doris Rivers you do know the Manuchin is from a Republican Administration…. from Trump’s Administration

    4. Alex Hamilton this aid came with a transparency oversight clause but is being ignored by the Trump administration and even fired the lead committee for it…

  1. I want to know how many BILLIONS of $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ Trump has received in the “stimulus package”

  2. Reminder: Mnuchin is refusing to tell us where over $500 billion in bailout money went until after the election.
    I wonder why?

    1. @Keith Johnson – Shelby GT500 I don’t get what Obama has to do do with ANYTHING that is currently devastating the United States right now. Remove him entirely from your argument and describe how Trump has been handling all of the current crises efficiently, (if you can).

    2. Ian G they didn’t, they voted for a full transparency and with an oversight committee. That’s why the cares act took an extra 3 days as they fought for it.

    3. @Keith Johnson – Shelby GT500 you quote a Forbes article that aged terribly and for what? WE KNOW THE ECONOMY PROSPERED UNDER OBAMA DICKWAD. WE LIVE HERE. So, how’s that billionaire businessman in the whitehouse making America great again?

  3. This administration is running the country the same way they’ve ran their own businesses; fraudulent, corrupt, and incompetent. Only now they’re doing it on a massive level by ripping off the government. Such a despicable group of cons!

  4. Americans better hurry and get bunker boy out. He can do unestimitable damage to the country in the next 126 days.

    1. @Walden
      tRump and the republican have been waging war on facts for the better part of 100years,, and when that fails they will wage war on any Country that they perceive are week and has a few assets they want to steal!


    3. @Barbara Witchey – Just responding to what you implied – 4 masters here – UR the one who needs help – My degrees are mine, they do not belong to someone else

    4. @Barbara Witchey Is that why he killed the Iran General despite Congress never declare war, which means it’s illegal and has trigger a underground war.

  5. yep thats the republicans. give the rich handouts while they squeeze the mid and lower classes dry. the republicans work for the few not for we the people. poor people that vote for them are idiots or worse wealth worshiping sinners

    1. @Stash Tweeker…and I suppose you think Trump is the chosen one? You know…they have new anti-psychotic medication that might help you with that problem you have.,

  6. He’s scared.
    I want to see them all prosecuted after this freak show is over.
    Make them an example. Every one of them.

    1. @Walter White What about all the “alternative facts” or propaganda that KellyAnne Conway, most Republicans, and Fox (false) News spread. Is that the “facts” that you so strongly champion?? Maybe you should re-examine the scientific principles and your own principles, before you so self-righteously lecture the rest of us.

    2. @Rob ….the caron dioxide experiment with the subjects wearing masks were performed by
      a democratic congressman and filmed by the local news agency that was ABC news. The masks were
      ranging between all out surgery mask, n95, cloth mask, nylon, and even a knit mask.

  7. Comrade Mnuchkin is doing what Putin would do, using us taxpayers as an endless pool of cash for him and his buddies, again.
    I want Rep. Porter in charge of all spending oversight, she has more credibility than all the goons of Putin (GOP) combined!!!
    GOP has got to go! 11/3/2020 We the People Shall Make It So.

  8. Mnuchin looks like a salamander, and he’ s about as trustworthy. After the GOP leaves I move that he be investigated, and if there’s the slightest infraction, jail him.

  9. Mnuchin is Trump’s bagman. “After” the election he should be in jail if there is any justice!

    1. @Stash Tweeker Most liberals don’t realize what the democratic party was founded on, which was slavery. I really thought Obama would’ve helped our minority communities but no, they were just given more welfare each month, a free cell phone, and a victim mentality. They are as phony as BLM.

    2. SouthSide Chicago You people are pathetic and a waist of air, Trump and the Republicans are corrupt and you people don’t care as long as he’s White and like minded, freaking morons

    3. @SouthSide Chicago…No MAGAT…we want people who break the law to go to jail. The House Way and Means Committee made a legal request for Trump’s taxes…Mnuchin refused to comply. That is a violation called Contempt of Congress, 2 U.S.C.A. § 192.

    4. @SouthSide Chicago…That’s your argument? That the Dems party was founded on slavery? Yeah, 190 years ago…since then there have been MANY changes. One being what is historically referred to as the “Party Realignment” which saw all of the racist southern Dixiecrats switch over to the republican party because they objected to the civil right movement in the early 1960’s… which was being championed by northern democrats and LBJ. All the racists are now in the republiKKKan party MAGAT.
      It’s better to keep your mouth shut and appear stupid…than to open it and remove all doubt.

  10. Steve Mnuchin must have handed the money out to all his rich friends, including tRump, so there was none left for the ones who really needed it.

  11. I know Rep. Porter is very new, but one day I’d love to see her be nominated as Vice-President or President.
    She works for all the citizens, regardless of party. She stands for fairness and honesty in government.
    I trust her, and I don’t trust many.

  12. Munchin doesn’t want to answer Porter’s questions. He & others are afraid of her!

    1. Awh, no reason to be scared of Katie Porter.

      Not unless you’re grifting her constituents or abusing your power, anyway. If you are, you’d better be afraid.

      Katie drains the swamp.

  13. Hope Katie Porter keeps her seat, we really need her there fighting for us, the forgotten used and abused.. Miss Ari being with Stephanie.

  14. everybody is scared of Katie Porter. And they should be.
    She has this ability to cut through the BS and expose any funny business.
    Thank God!!!
