  1. 600 $ after 9 months smh shameless Congress

  2. The GOP is holding America hostage and the Democrats have to comply.

    Its like an abusive spouse threatening to harm the children. If the other doesn’t comply with their demands.

    Its sick, its heartless and history will not look kindly on the GOP’s betrayal of the American people.

    Edit: Host to Hostage

  3. Moscow Mitch says “eat peanuts” or “eat cake”

  4. What hipocrisy! Shame, shame shame! Pick up that Bible you sware too and get some real compassion for people!

  5. BLM protesters: “Defund the police!”
    Senate republicans blocking state funding for 5 months: “OK!”
    BLM protesters: 😲

      And this has nothing to do with cutting funds from the police? I don’t think you understand what that term means buddy.

    • what are you trying to say, if your insinuating Joe Biden want to defund the police that is a lie, BLM what has that got to with anything

    • @gabby Lane I know Biden doesn’t want to defund the police. I also know “defund the police” is more about re-allocating funds to things like community policing and social services. My point is that it turns out it was the republicans who effectively “defunded the police” by refusing to pass state-level funding that would have gone to pay police salaires.

    • @Daniel Schlobach The goal is to stop spending money on things that clearly have not worked for decades (militarization of the police) and shift those funds to social services, community policing, mental health services instead. So “cutting funds” is misleading. You don’t keep putting money into a vending machine that only eats your money, right? Same idea.

  6. And trump wasting money going to court that money could have been used to help people the money getting from people to pay off his debts could be used for people who doing it hard

  7. PRIVILEGE: Imagine earning $174,000 each year and getting free healthcare, pensions, etc. regardless of your performance, and refusing to pass a nickel in Covid relief support to your constituents for months upon end during a crisis.

  8. I want to know what she is smoking if she thinks McTurtle is going to deal in good faith.

    • She’s hoping that Democrats win the Senate, because if so, there WILL be real relief on its way, because (most) Democrats want to get substantial aid to individuals and to stressed city and town budgets. It all comes down to Georgia.

      @itgetter9 Agree

  9. $600 in 9 months, Congressmen spend that in 1 week for Lunch! And that’s our money 💰 Taxes!

  10. Sad some comment doesn’t want to face the truth. Still blaming Democrats. There’s no decency among the Republicans following Dondal Trump McConnell Graham.and others.

    It will be tough to get things
    done, either way

  12. what good does a $600 check do anyone? Not all of us qualify for unemployment, so what are we supposed to do?

  14. Are the people supposed to say thank you or are you kidding me. Other countries have been given their citizens 3000 a month since March smh..

  15. Trump doesn’t care anymore. He’s out January 20th, hopefully sooner.

  16. This bill is underwhelming. That amount of direct payments to the American people is minuscule. Congress should do better.

    How much did those tax funded dinners that Pompeo held cost? What about all the parties at the White House? Just one table of guests cost us more than $600 and they think it will pay for rent? They get paid $174,000 plus lots of benefits to sit around and decide what’s best for everyone else and then go home to their nice homes to celebrate Christmas with their families while others stand in line to get food!

  18. They could have done 1200 or more.

  19. Daniel Heiberg | December 21, 2020 at 6:33 PM | Reply

    Twenty percent approval rating for congress says it all.

  20. I wonder how much all those holiday parties in the White House cost.
