    Trillions for the rich and power full. Evictions and starvation for the working poor.

  2. McConnell will not go for it.. He prefers to help his billionaire friends.

  3. Unanimous consent? No, I want to see every Senator that vote against it!

      Seem like it wasn’t even a vite mitch said no and it was over

    • Mitch is the one that has the power to open the floor for a vote. If he says no then no senators vote on it and the bill just sits. Same thing he did to obama when obama was in office. Blocked everything he tried to get passed unless it had some interest in it for the republicans.. that’s is why a lot of republican voters feel that obama did nothing for America was because of mitch. The president has no control over money. It is congress that decides on all money making decisions
      Both congress and senate

      @Richarda muschette Future reference,… will give a list of anti Americans to vote out of office. The ones voting against are usually the ones getting their pockets greased and the public should be aware
      All the members that signed on to that TX suit need to be cut off the tit also, it’s called “cleaning the swamp”

    • @deangelo pack
      and the house for the last 2 years.
      Democrats in the House passed for better way of 🗳 ing machines tracking every 🗳 paper trail.
      Easier way to 🗳
      🗳 ers shouldn’t have to stand in line for upto 10 hours.
      McConnell did nothing to pass any bill sat on his desk never brought to the floor to be 🗳 ed on.
      Georgia please 🗳 💙💙💙💙💙💙

      @deangelo pack True statement deangelo. But, America doesn’t see the truth! They would rather vote for Satan than have a democrat in control.

  4. What is the point of these speeches when they never agree regardless of what is said 🤦‍♀️

  5. The Senate pass something the American working class could really need and earned? No effin way

    • The wealthy own the majority of these Senators, when they aren’t passing laws to only benefit the rich they are passing laws to kick the workers in the face.

      That is the only thing with the Republicans party they are all for filthy rich corporations and the 1%. They never had compassion for the working class and poor. All parties have issue but the Democratic party is more compassionate and humanitarian than the GOP.

    • Agreed. They don’t serve us.

    • Won’t happen until Moscow Mitch is gone.

  6. The Republican Trump traitors are hurting Americans by not getting necessary relief to those in need during this pandemic. We will never forget this.

    • @Dillon McCluskey check the ones that were arrested for the burning of Oregon.
      A known meth user and his 5 friends.
      Outsiders went to Minnesota to burn the police station down. Was not part of the peaceful protesters that were protesting.
      Thirteen arrested in Michigan 6 was going to kidnap the Democrat Govenor
      The others were going to blow up a bridge.
      3 white nationalist on there way to
      Las Vegas Nevada. To blow up downtown where peaceful protesters were protesting.
      Rochester NY white man with his face painted black arrested for rioting and looting where peaceful protesters were protesting. The umbrella man arrested for rioting and looting where peaceful protesters were protesting.
      FBI has helped arrest the outsiders.

      Don’t blame Trump for this.. If it wasn’t for him they woundnt even be talking about $2,000

    • @lawrence jones for the last several months Senators. Sanders. Harris have asked for $ 2000, 00
      Last weekend Democrats was asking for $ 1,200.00 when in session all weekend McConnell and other Replubicians didn’t even want to give the $ 600.00. But Democrats gave them margarita lunch
      Trump played golf and said nothing the bill passed on Monday Congress went home and than trump yells $ 2000 .00
      He knew that McConnell wouldn’t go for that.

    • The so-called tolerant left is the most hate fueled groups in America. Always willing to infringe on somebody else’s constitutional rights as they attempt to speak from a self-imposed moral High Ground…

  7. When people are cutting their medications in half it’s time to stop calling these funds a “stimulus”. It’s survival for many folks.

  8. Lets remind McConnell that the money belongs to the American people…. 🗣 NOW GIVE US OUR MONEY

    Vote Democratic January 5 !! Mitch McConnell must be gone

  10. Stephanie Ledogar | December 29, 2020 at 1:38 PM | Reply

    If this isn’t proof that McConnell hates us, i don’t know what is.

  11. McConnell needs to retire.
    America doesn’t need him.

    • Poor swamp dweller whites keep voting in rich old white males.. who do NOTHING to help them.. because hey ..”whiteness”… racism trumps self interests w them

    • Roseney Depaula | December 29, 2020 at 3:52 PM | Reply

      Yes just now

    • Roseney Depaula | December 29, 2020 at 4:14 PM | Reply

      All this was combined with trump so not pass the republicans are destroying America leading the Americans people to misery.
      Congressional republicans just want to sit around getting their millionaires salary and watch the people go hungry
      President Republican here never not here
      No more republicano

    • @Roseney Depaula
      Yes I agree!!!
      No more republicans.

    • @Mark Lawson could u picture mitch McConnell as president lol do u think he would be like trump lol

  12. MOST RICH PEOPLE DO NOT CARE ABOUT POOR PEOPLE AND. MOST RICH PEOPLE WILL HELP THE RICH PEOPLE. BEFORE THEY ASSIST THE POOR PEOPLE.

  13. Nothing like the voice of death chiming in at the last moment and objecting…
    The horror of Mitch McConnell has to be ejected from the Senate

  14. Raphael Robinson | December 29, 2020 at 2:00 PM | Reply

    Alright Georgia now you know what to do.

    Schumer, you’re dealing with a snake, you’re wasting your time with McConnell.

  16. ROBERT ANDERSON | December 29, 2020 at 2:07 PM | Reply

    If the Senate does not approve the increase in Stimulus money, I’m hoping they lose the Georgia Runoff because of it….

    • Juanita anderson | December 29, 2020 at 4:52 PM | Reply

      agreed but the 2 republicans are saying they agree with the 2000.00 so they can slither to hold on to there seat.

  17. And yet, the American people will continue to vote Republican, out of the same gullibility they were conned by in voting for Trump.

  18. The title should say- “Mitch McConnel screws Americans…..again”

  19. UniQuely Young | December 29, 2020 at 2:27 PM | Reply

    I wanna ask Mitch how it feels to be the most hated man in America right now, he too old to understand our needs!!!

  20. Yes, increase that bill $2000 giving the rich everything is no longer acceptable.
