  1. This is trash! Our government is a joke!

      The government is what we the people decide. If voters decide to elect sociopaths and con artists that screw them at every opportunity, then we have the government we deserve.

    • @Dominick Palella I agree to a point, but it is a bit hard to put all the blame on all voters. Trump did not get into office because of the popular vote in 2016. I do not care all that much for Biden and I do not like a few of his cabinet picks so far but at minimum he has plans and policies and did not run on a “lock them up” platform. Plus I am very tired of kicking the can down the road when it comes to taking care of our own and from what I gather that is what Biden plans on doing.

      @Jim River Biden will certainly take care of his Party’s corporate and wealthy donors. Our electorate is far too indoctrinated to understand why we continue to have taxation, without representation that gives more of our tax dollars to to profit-making corporations than families in need. Unfortunately, the few voters that do understand, have no clue what to do about it. That’s why I started my website.

    • @Dominick Palella I am sure he will. I hope your website is able to wake some people up. I have been using

      @Jim River There are plenty of people and organizations that reveal corruption, but stuck in the belief that politicians should make all of their political decisions for them. The concept of voting, after elections, is what I’m trying to get across.

  2. 600 will get people through the next month and a half??? On what planet?? Can somebody call these wealthy politicians back down to earth where the real people live?

    For 7 months they should have came up with an all-encompassing package. Especially with just $600 when other countries are able to provide monthly checks ever since the started to help struggling families get through this it’s ridiculous in comparison

  4. Wow! $1800 for each working person over a 10 month period! Wow! I hope it didn’t hurt the pockets of Congress too much!

  5. Debating or stalling? They pass bills quick when it come to their needs!

    The last thing the people need is to hear politicians who say people need more but it’s not forthcoming. We KNOW that.

  7. mitch mcconnell is your typical unrealiable lackadaisical employee. he hears rumors of a possible replacement (jan. 5th senate runoff) and now he is mr. johnny on the spot. 🙄

  8. I.4 BILLION for Trump’s wall? ARE YOU FRIGGIN KIDDING ME?

    I want to acknowledge that you properly corrected yourself. Survival checks! Until you can get that threw the heads of congress you should all be worried about your safty

    I project this, by the time some people are mailed a check, it will be returned to the government because they are homeless.😐

  12. This will get you through a month and a half …ok you live on 600.00 for a month…really?

  13. When does the damned $600 fall into my account, that’s what I need to know.

    It took 4 months for the last stimulus to arrive.

  14. Scraps for the people. Scraps. What a joke. But yes Congress passed in the bill funding for themselves so they continue to collect $100k+ in salaries. What a joke. We live in a failed state.

  15. Greedy political millionaires trying to tell the average person to be happy with $600. The mf’rs probably spent more than that on their lunch.

  17. Plenty of money for the war machine and corporations, not much for the working man, America needs better priorities.

  18. All of these senators are so completely unrealistic… 600$ for another month and a half.

    • Many I’ll be on the streets in the next few weeks n landlords are out there working around those eviction protections by using repairs etc as reasons to legally the landlords catch up by paying our rent or a chunk of it pd directly to landlord, not extending the date we have to pay it…without that help, we will just end up more in debt..n still evicted bc

    The fact that nothing was retro active. It’s a pathetic bill. Honestly with Mitch McConnell in nothing else will happen. Vote his powers away.

  20. Government is of, for and by the people… not of, for and by the corporation
