100 Comments on "Sen. McConnell: ‘We Appear To Be Just Hours Away’ From Covid Relief Bill | MSNBC"

  1. Took so long even though this was all started in May

    • @william You need to discern info. Nancy even got caught saying holding the stimulus so Trump gets no credit was a political move. All the bills Nancy and dems sent were stacked with extras. This was on purpose since the senate rep would say no way. Then idiots that cant discern information would blame repubs. So sad so many can’t see the nefarious motive which is as obvious as the sun if you bothered to look.

    • Conservatives wouldn’t compromise to liberal pork

    • @David Watson That was then this is know. Most people know blame the republicans for only getting 600, it is said Mitch even said the only reason we or getting 600 is because they or afraid of losing the senate. It all comes down to Georgians in a couple weeks. On youtube so many Georgians or saying they or voting democrat in runoff we will see.

    • @william I agree with you totally on 2nd comment.

  2. Everyone is getting 100 dollar coupons to Walmart and a box of cereal and bread. Merry Christmas!

  3. What a joke, more money to their buddies than the citizens.

    • @Emily Curewitz Actually, queen nancy


    • The comment came just a day after President Donald Trump and others called on Congress to send direct payments of $1,200.
      “Why isn’t Congress giving our people a Stimulus Bill?” the president asked Saturday night. “It wasn’t their fault, it was the fault of China,” he added, referring to the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus that caused a worldwide pandemic. “GET IT DONE, and give them more money in direct payments.”

      Sen. John Barrasso (R-Wyo.) said Sunday that the final deal would include direct $600 payments and an extension of the small business loan program, known as the Payment Protection Program, that was set up during the CARES Act in March.

      “It’s a little more specific this time in that the business has to be fewer than 300 employees and they have to actually show a loss,” he said.

      Last week, Sen. Josh Hawley (R-Mo.) said he worked with Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) to include $1,200 stimulus payments in the package, but it appears to have been rejected.

    • @azac d I do like the free market economy before the oligarchs took over and made us into slaves for the rich. Since you like a plutocracy I suggest you move to Russia where you and Trump can worship your buddy Vlad Putin. Or move to North Korea and worship your fat buddy Kim.

  4. They are all just a joke. If it was money for them, it would have been passed months ago.

      Stop Russia stop Russia spy Moscow Mitch , At Pro-Trump Georgia Rally, Lawyer Lin Wood Says Don’t Vote for GOP Senators in ‘Rigged’ Runoffs: ‘They’ve Not Earned It’ George republicans-“don’t vote for the republicans on the Jan 5 run off , don’t give these republicans candidates your votes” this is the lawyer heads of the Republicans saying this maybe listen? The election 🗳 has been decided already

    • Absolutely!

    • I happen to think it’s great. Americans demonized everything related to socialism for decades. This is the outcome they fought for over decades. Congratulations america; your hard work is paying off.

    • Don’t forget Mitch regifted 400 of that 900M. They were already supposed to disburse that the last time but Mitch took it back & is now pretending as if that’s new money. It isn’t. You’re being played again by Republicans.. 🤦🏻‍♂️

  5. The already rich must be happy. They will get millions.

    • @Adam Mcgrath lol your kids will be ashamed of you cuz you are on the wrong side of history! You might as well have been on hitlers side.

    • @Adam Mcgrath it’s also funny you think your side is the smart side when that’s the side that tends to ignore science and fact. Think about that… then think about it some more. Maybe you’ll get that in a few years.

      They can buy up all the buildings out of biz now. Tieing the Feds hands and Biden’s hands so that an economical collapse of America doesn’t get stopped by 900 B dollars. Willfully allowing a collapse of America in health and economically can set up a real takeover. Think.

    • Donalld Allhands | December 20, 2020 at 5:20 PM | Reply

      Cool. They will get millions and have zero businesses to spend their money on.. making it worthless. Go ahead 👍

    • Just like last time no doubt, because they don’t put watchdogs on it that Trump can’t fire.

  6. $600???
    Three dollars a day!!???
    What a pitiful joke.

  7. Insult to the American people, they should be ashamed of themselves

  8. Unbelievable after 9 months of suffering they should be ashamed of themselves

  9. Gracie Rose Miller | December 20, 2020 at 3:17 PM | Reply

    $600 is a disgusting amount and especially for those who have months and months of back rent.

    • You now what a job is

    • @6977warrior1 usa is the richest country on the planet. Our military is larger than the next 4 largest armies added up.
      We can afford to help the people. 300billion to the people vs 3000 billion to business in he 1st cares act. Wtf the people will spend any money given to them at the businesses. All should go to the people.

    • @Tony Appleton Get your facts straight before commenting. China’s army is the biggest, followed by India’s, then USA. Your reply makes zero sense about being bigger than the next 4 added up. SMH. Qatar is the richest country on the planet. Switzerland, United Arab Emirates, Kuwait etc are richer than us by GDP. The USA comes in about 11th richest. Did you even study in school or when guessing in your false reply?? But I agree that much more should go directly to the people, of course, instead of large corporations.

      @crazychris 23 You mean we USED TO KNOW what a job was.

    • Teri Montgomery | December 20, 2020 at 7:58 PM | Reply

      EXACTLY.. they’re slinging funds to corporations left and right yet complaining about helping people who are losing their homes ABC’s livelihood.. just disgusting

  10. No pay for congress and defund their pensions. Term limits all branches.

    • @shedu lamassuWhatever that means???🤨🤨🤨

    • @Victoria Katz your link is to pro trump. I’m saying the game is rigged no matter who you vote for. This is all a show to perpetuate the illusion. 😳

    • @shedu lamassu the only thing I know is that career politicians are puppets who are owned by one special interest or another. My only compass is the constitution of this country. Those who follow it and protected ahave my vote. PRO TRUMP I am. He is not a career politician, but knows their game. He loves this country and no special interest own him. We put him there!!! Trump 2020!!!

    • @Victoria Katz research who bailed him out and tell me he isn’t owned by the same people as the rest. 🤣🤣🤣

    • @Victoria Katz or is he performing the exact same ritual they all do to fool them before he pounces? 🤔

  11. their gonna keep passing a 2 day funding bill and just play around like that. everyone should be fired at this point. i realized that you dont have to be a grown up to work in the government but kids can word there too.

      It’s not even crumbs,just the oily residue the pie crust left behind in the pan for us to lick clean.

    • @Jake Reed How did you get a tax cut? My federal taxes went up, and I lived in MD, so state taxes are always high, I usually get between 4,000 and 5,000 from feds and owe MD, I got 1,000 back last year. When you have a family, it sucks because you can’t claim personal exemptions anymore, thank god we’ve had savings, and it looks like no more vacations at least until a new tax plan comes out, or I get a promotion

    • @Ty Ler I hear you it’s very tough here in California also very high rent mortgages. My accountant found a way for me to write off a lot of the interest I paid on the two homes I bought . Good luck in the future hope you and your family stay safe and are prosperous. 😁

    • @Ty Ler it’s been tough financially for everyone but I found during this time I’m spending more time focusing on things that matter exercising playing music hanging out with friends family not watching TV. Hopefully you can find a way to use this time to get in touch with something like that. Good luck

    • I’ll grab my guns, they’ll hang from trees.

    Big corporations will get most of money. The people may get peanuts.

  14. Diane Marriott | December 20, 2020 at 3:26 PM | Reply

    Make them live on 600 since April shut the gov down

  15. McConnell’s “we” means politicians and corporate America. This bill was never meant for the people. $600 is an insult.

  16. They don’t think twice when taking our money but when we want it back they take months to decide???

  17. We’ve been “hours away” since April…….

  18. Treasure Cassidy | December 20, 2020 at 3:52 PM | Reply

    Those thieves should be in jail.

  19. $600? That’s like 1 week worth of expenses

    • @Soundness Of Mind when millions of people are out of work. Government needs to step in and takr care of the people. You dont seem to have a problem whem government bails out airlines and auto manufacturers? I say let thr corporations fail. Someone else will come along and start another business. We keep bailing out the same corporations that fail over and over. Obviously your doing good in this pandemic. But if you werent youd be asking for help. This isnt capitalism. Its fascism.

      @im ok12 not to bright… trump tried with 4 times more money and that old bag said no not until Biden won.. shes been holding it all up.

    • @Eric Angiolillo insulting somes intelligence. And not knowing the difference between to and too. Comical. Turtle bag Mcconnel called those bills dead on arrival. He doesnt want to help america he wants to help his self interest. If Trump “tried” to get 4x more money why did they end at almost 1 trillion when the original bill passed in March was for 3 trillion. Coming to a debate will 0 facts is comical.

    • Eric Angiolillo | December 20, 2020 at 8:30 PM | Reply

      @im ok12 actually Nancy wouldn’t let that last stimulus bill go through because se didn’t want to give Trump A win before or close to the election.. thats a fact… Now if you want to be picky and correct English and grammar knock yourself out i didn’t know i was being graded… but facts are facts look it up and not on some one sided new b.s either…

  20. That “deal” better not include liability protection for big corporations.
