    And every penny of it has to be paid back by the American taxpayer. Or their grandchildren.

  2. They keep saying “per person.” From my understanding, if you didn’t file taxes in the last 2 years you get nothing.

    Why are big businesses getting more funding than hospitals?

  4. Hurry the hell up and make a decision, Jesus

    • Ben Donahue

    • Pelosi wants, More… more for the Green New Deal, to allow Voter Fraud by way of Mail in Ballots, etc…Pelosi Made the Stimulus Bill Political… amendments are Always Political… Pelosi and the Democrats have realized Months ago that they have No chance to win the 2020 election, so they try getting what They want through the Back Door…

      You can thank the pathetic Democrats for grandstanding…

    • “Word went out that Pelosi wanted $35 million for the Kennedy Center, $100 million for NASA, $25 million for cleaning supplies for the Capital building, $25 million for additional payments to House representatives and other unrelated goodies. The House bill stretched to more than 1,000 pages”….wtf does NASA have to do with economic relief.

    • And who provides the jobs? The poor? You just want free money huh?

    • @Pandas Panda Pan Das Who??? the corporate overlords with billions of dollars to their name?? oh yeaahh they ReAlLy need that bailout money, they could save their companies AND employees by giving away just a fraction of their net-worth, but nope, they aint giving a cent for NOBODY, make the taxpayers do that

      @OlEgSaS32 And you know that what you say is true and is a fact for all? From what source are you getting the info? Maybe you should actually review the language in the bill that is being voted on.

      It’s okay. In the Bible, god leaves 99 and save the 1.

    Yay free money, can we now all go buy toilet paper!?!?

  12. Remember, the reason why Congress passed this is because your supposed to stay home away from work or anything to stop the spread of the coronavirus! Do not be naive to this and start travelling everywhere like it’s a vacation. Your literally getting paid to stay home.

      Ssi disability isn’t getting anything.. we will have to travel to donation center for help… Because they won’t

      1200 bucks doesn’t even cover the rent for a lot of us in California.

    • Lord of the Fly' | March 25, 2020 at 1:59 PM | Reply

      @Michael Bryant what changed? SSI is still delivered on time. My father gets his. You didn’t burn through your normal allotted payment thinking you’d get a 2nd check did you?!? 🤦‍♂️

      @Michael Bryant serious question…….not trying to be mean…….

    • Lord of the Fly' | March 25, 2020 at 3:13 PM | Reply

      @Erik Everson it does for everyone else though. So, for you having bad decision making skills, getting yourself in a home in a state you can’t afford to live in, we should pay you more than the rest of America? Move to a sane state bro. Just make sure you leave that socialist voting record most Californians carry around in California, when you move……..the rest of us don’t vote like California does for this exact reason. We like to live…….

  13. They are giving over double the amount to business over it’s own citizens!?

    What in the actual hell!?

    • Do you forget that these businesses employ thousands of people?
      Also the economy is plummeting and the money goes to airline and hotel industries

    • Without busssiness then there are no jobs

      RaNia .F restaurants are overrated and they sell junk food barley any real healthy options

      You could feed someone with like 20 dollars a day ( that’s really generous ) with like rice and beans.

      Could u really run a business with 20 dollars a day ? U would need perhaps more right … maybe even double or triple.

  14. This is like someone eating a pizza and then offering you the crust.

  15. $2 trillion, let that sink in.

    Where is it coming from? We’re already $20+ trillion in debt. I don’t see how this can continue. The FED hasn’t even completely unwound it’s balance sheet from the GFC…and now this. Get prepared folks, more pain to come (and probably more “free” money too).

    Why are businesses getting more money than hospitals??? Why!

    • Cainhurst Nobility | March 25, 2020 at 1:55 PM | Reply

      Because the wealthy already have their private hospitals while all you poors can suck it. It’s the way republicans prefer everything, exclusive.

    • Allan Delacruz | March 25, 2020 at 1:59 PM | Reply

      Hospitals are bigger businesses too

    • @Cainhurst Nobility and Democrats want you dumb so you’ll be mad at Republicans over nothing. Hospitals ARE businesses. Those are also loans to small businesses. Pay attention.

    • Lord of the Fly' | March 25, 2020 at 3:51 PM | Reply

      @Cainhurst Nobility I have my own insurance. Local 301. Maybe if you worked for a living instead of riding govt programs you might learn something about insurance. Soyboy

    • You want a job after this is over?

  17. They can get the money to give to these businesses but not to the people themselves. We are ruled by a criminal organization.

    • I meat take over failing businesses that are national important like banks.

    • That’s the real truth and for people that don’t believe that looks like it’s about to slap them in the face really soon. Take care.

      I assume you work for a business! Almost everyone does!
      If they tank you lose regardless! What are you upset that families with children are getting more money than an individual single American citizen? We are all getting our share by what our individual needs DEMAND IT.

      @edit name but if you give the money straight to businesses, yeah they’ll pay they employees that they didnt cut, but to those that were cut dont get anything besides what they are getting directly, in that case what’s stopping the company from just pocketing the extra money. In that case the company isnt suffering because they wont have money to spend on/pay. Then there’s money just sitting there that doesn’t help the economy. It’s just laying there to rot

  18. What about the next relief package? Keep ’em coming!

  19. “The needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few”—-Spock
    Apply your own interpretation of this principle as it relates to the stimulus bill. For me, it’s crystal clear.

    • It’s always the one’s getting the money are the ones with it I’m so angry, how much more are we going to take with those criminals that are at the top of the pyramid scam.

  20. Send China the bill for it.
