  1. Fine then, claw back the tax break of 2017 for the offset.

    I cant understand how McConnell got re-elected, this behavior isn’t something new, he is always like this, who would vote for that kind of person?? Just the wealthy. But there are more in poverty then in wealth!

    • @Insignificant360 okay take your own advice and get me my $2000 along with everyone else. Ohh you just want to be hip and complain and not get me my money. Are you stupid?

    • Agree I don’t understand either and it want even close! No ONE man in OUR givernment should have THIS much power…PERIOD!

      @Travis Howett I’m not the one complaining about the government here. “NO U” does not a rebuttal make.

      @JWalkers Conner interesting. So how do they feel about this situation them? Their dear leader calling for 2K stimulus payment, but their Senator (Senators, actually, because there’s no way Paul was going to vote yes for this) blocking it?

    • I think they do snake worship. Kinda out of touch with the other 49 states. The smart ones go underground to dig bitumus coal. The stuff that burns you and creates black lung. If you do not understand go sit in some rail road ties in the summer. Yea thats the stuff. Mitch is pink never been working in that industry. Hill folk call him Pink Mitch.

  3. if america doesn’t want to deal with the GOP’s bs in 2021, maybe we should vote ossoff AND warnock jan. 5th? just a thought. 🤷‍♀️🤦‍♀️

      @Shawn Corbin Nothing wrong with Dominion……. you’ve been played Shawn

    • I guess liberal Democrats support lifelong corrupt politicians and the establishment because they’re really smart 🤔 ⛄

    • @halalslagt en dansk panser og gør Allah glad spread some more right wing fear while you are at it I was worried when I watched the red hat rallies with the crazy trump supporters

    • Where’s my Money Mitch!!!??? Give us $2K and we might just vote for Loeffler..

    • @Jason Milton Looks like you already voted for HOMOSEXUALITY Jason 😳 👀

  4. Meanwhile, canada has been sending every unemployed person, quarantined persons, people taking care of sick family members $2000 EVERY MONTH since April. We aren’t great.

      @Harry Flashman If you cannot explain or defend your criticism, then you’re here just to provoke with baseless and meaningless taunts. I’ll remember that in the event our paths cross again.

    • @The last farewell Baseless, meaningless taunts is what the Dumocrats have been doing for the last 4 years. Enjoy the turnaround. It’s coming.

    • The last farewell | December 29, 2020 at 11:37 PM | Reply

      @Harry Flashman That’s neither an explanation or a defense.

      @Kelly Fehr My car, and Elon Musk’s car, runs on fossil fuels. The duped fools of the “Green movement” are too far gone to follow the electricity to the coal and gasoline fueled electric supply company. It’s best to keep their eyes closed so as not to actually admit to reality.

      Why would I need the Bible to know that Green energy is a lie?

      And the loss of Canada’s exspenses on Defense Aircraft won’t be felt for a second as America sends (sells) its military products to Australia to protect it from being attacked by China.

      @Angela Johnson Um, Democrat totalitarianism is antithetical to a balance of power. You need to ask your 8th grade teacher if that is correct.

      And you do know that “the wealthiest” in the country and in the world . . . bought the election for Biden? Right? AND, the wealthiest people and corporations too.

      You do raelize how wealthy and powerful China is? One can only hope.

  5. They could TAX the 1% 80% and they would still be the 1%.

    • I don’t know a tax on the successful is exactly the correct way forward but definitely closing tax loopholes so that the rich, and large corporations actually just pay their fair share. Amazon pays nearly now federal tax while being one of the largest countries in the world. We could just make sure that can’t get away with that.

      Go research the top marginal tax rate during president Kennedy. Then you will understand how after the middle class was hallowed out and the rich then got richer.

    Republicans love socialism if it benefits the rich, but if it benefits for the normal Joe, it’s BAD VENEZUELAN SOCIALISM…

      What part of stimulus has to do with workers owning the means of production LMAO?

    • @CryptoSinz ᛟ Easy, it’s in the Crypto if you look & think for your self about it.

      @Janet Crawford the fact is Capitalism is human made
      And can be changed anytime

    • @Steve Jakubowski Yes!!! All Hail the new United Socialist Communist States of America!!!
      I just need my $2000.00 check in order to validate my membership!!!

      @Jacob Hanson yep, qe need to stop socialism, first stop using Dr Lee’s socialist world wide web protocol
      Then no more public streets , no fire or police, and no military, just hire blackwater

  7. Take the Republican Leader out to pasture. Vote in your Senate elections Georgia. As Americans, we deserve far better. WE THE PEOPLE DESERVE FAR BETTER!!!!!!

  8. Let’s not forget it took Trump and Republicans months to pass that bill and how they blamed the democrats lmao

  9. Look North to Canada to see how well their government is taking care of their citizen, plus they have health insurance for everybody. Canada is a GREAT country!

    • Im an aspiring Canadian…..crossing the border back into the US feels like checking myself back into prison.

      Trumpublican whining about socialism and waiting lists in 3… 2… 1…

      Most Americans fail to recognize socialism and communistm; socialism actually not bad as American think for example Danmark Iceland Sweden canada they seem to be doing just fine
      In canada the home less man have better health care than average joe in United States if he got hit by virus or heart attack only thing he worry on hospital bill maybe is parking if he have a car

      @Thongsay Phommavong It’s decades of Republican indoctrination that lumps socialism, communism and Stalinism together combined with a persistent belief in the myth of bootstrap lifting- which originally was a statement of unreal expectation before it was made into a virtue.

  10. When the facts are before you, many people knows how to Read but few will Comprehend what they are reading

  11. How’s that 2 trillion dollar 2018 tax cut to the rich working on “your” budget workin out Mitch.

  12. Power corrupts | December 29, 2020 at 1:55 PM | Reply

    Republicans and their fearless orange leader spent the last four years blowing up the deficit and handing out tax breaks to the rich.

  13. Here’s a big tip, economy equals buying milk and eggs not my portfolio went up 2%. Got that!

    • They don’t want people who do the real work to have money they want it to go just to the rich who invest in their corporations.

  14. I don’t want to hear one word from Republican talking about the deficit.

    If I had my way I’d give everybody a million dollars!! Theres how many people in the america 300 million we can afford it

    That privileged Mitch McConnell needs to sit his old tied Evil behind down and retire. With his out dated Dinosaur mentality. Go away MITCH your services are no longer wanted OR NEEDED!!!!!!

  17. Why is this Commentator even bothering to ask Raskin any questions ? She talked through most of the interview

  18. This mess is going to cause the Republicans to lose a lot of votes and lose future elections

  19. Richard Taylor | December 29, 2020 at 3:12 PM | Reply

    Republicans are willing to blow up the Constitution for this president but not help the people survive

  20. The Republicans’ message is not consistent with the current pandemic situation.
