  1. It’s sad how we have to negotiate Aid.

    AMERICANS NEED MORE HELP !!!
    This is a pittence compare to what other countries are doing for their citizens .

    • Shouldn’t be called help. Goes to “the Gang”” ‘ s head. It’s not help. It’s our money.

      How bad is it that the corporate bosses can’t make them act? Isn’t somebody on the phone pressuring them to get holiday shoppers in?
      It’s not crumbs we need, it’s not help. We want our money turned back. It’s our money.

    • I’d say it’s worse than pittance, it’s downright neglect.

      @T M only one mistake you have to rebuke him.

    • Deborah Freedman | December 17, 2020 at 2:46 PM | Reply

      If you want help, why isn’t Oklahoma electing Democrats? Both your senators, and all but one of your representatives, are Republicans?

    • @Liberal in Oklahoma Thanks for answering Fido here….he missed the fire hydrant. Better to have thick fingers than a thick head.
      Glad you answered him.

  3. Let me see senators live on 600 for months. They live in their golden mansions and spend on none necessary and fool people with $600

    Don’t worry, the rich will be just fine.

    $600 is only delaying the inevitable and, even then, only for a short while.
    It’s getting a bit rough and tumble out here.

    • They want us to be able to buy a ps5.

      It is not enough to pay rent for most people and for those of us who lost our homes to fire and are in tents and rvs can’t even get an rv spot for that, if you can find a spot.

    • @The Zombie Whisperer i can barely buy food. I have shrunk muscle

    • The Zombie Whisperer | December 17, 2020 at 10:17 AM | Reply

      @Andrew Ross I have plenty of food just no way to cook it, Alameda fire burned up everything and my tiny rv nothing wants to work now that it’s winter, and I don’t have running water, sewer or power just a solar panel that doesn’t work either, I am seriously considering suicide for a few more reasons that I have mentioned

    A depression is breathing on the back of our collective necks.

    • @Kay whenever a depression or recession occurs, that means stock market is on sale. Invest in stock and crypto. I promise you’ll come back and thank me in a couple months.

    • @mike mann songs Verrrrrry good. I just took a screenshot of that list. Will go to my Photos and I’ll use it from there.
      You can’t reach anybody but your own representatives online, but you can reach all others by snail and telephone ….all day, please do.
      People who comment on these YT clips are hugely articulate and comments are informative. But, why are we talking to each other?
      Talk to them. Tell them we’ve had it and they’re doing to be replaced. Better…write to the corporate puppeteers, boycott products.
      We’ve lost our mite. In the 30’s they went on strike. When that didn’t work, they occupied the factory.

      @Audra Eden, Americans are so fractured until it’s not likely, even for their own good, will they all come together, still good luck.

    900B lol most of which are money from previously passed laws.. Republicans never want to give the People any money, but they love their donors and corporations.

  9. Andrew woodworth | December 17, 2020 at 9:56 AM | Reply

    Congress: We have to pass something on relief or the peasants will up rise, opps I ment the hard working American people lol.

  10. I don’t want to pay these people anymore….

  11. This is a pittance to the people compared to what they are willing to give corporations without batting an eye!

  12. 600 bucks for us ‘little guys’….tens of millions for the rich.

    • Yes you are correct. With a federal budget deficit rising exponentially since 2016 from $500 billion to over $3 trillion, it is shameful that regular people, thru no fault of their own, barely hanging on, falling thru the cracks. Hopefully this helps but it sure is not enough.

    • Nothing for a big chunk of us too, but if you are lucky enough to be working now or if you are wealthy and don’t need it maybe you shouldn’t get it so it goes to people who do need it. I am afraid most of this money is going to the wrong place.

    • @Dan Burnes Right and this guy who could not even pull a VP bid through is running his mouth. He is my state and Im Dem but the truth is the truth….these folks are only for the rich

    • @mike mann songs well, I am not going to do that… I hope if you are calling that you really do need the money, and I wish you the best.

  13. Corporations will get help…but if your an Actual Human with a Job or Not… You are on your own. Mitch McConnell is the Angel of Death and aims to Prove It.

    $600 will not do s*it for the American people. 🤬

    • Exactly they have money to buy the things they need and pay there bills and put food on there table this is a f**king insult to the American people when the time comes around again for these people we need to vote every last one of them out

    • A lot of people are hiring. Get a job, lady.

  15. They have Holiday vacations to get to. They will get it done so they do not miss their flights. Count on that. Those Tropical Islands are calling.

  16. Grovel for spare change, peasants.

  17. This is why the election in Georgia is so important, if Mitch has his way this will be all the American people get…

    • jerry bangwaller | December 17, 2020 at 10:42 AM | Reply

      And the only reason he is willing to let us have ANY of our money back is he thinks it will help his buddies in Georgia.

    • Don’t be stupid about McConnell. He will go back to his stonewalling ways once Loeffler and Perdue win the Georgia senate races. These people will fall in line with whatever McConnell says. Loeffler and Perdue do not work for the people of Georgia. They will work for McConnell always.

    • You do realize that Dems have a long history of bowing to the GOP don’t you?

      Remember the ACA “negotiations”? The GOP would add amendments to weaken the bill, the Dems would allow it and then the GOP voted against those sabotage bills and since none of them voted for it, they hung that terrible bill around the necks of the dems.

      The Democratic party has never and will never learn that the GOP are bad actors. Honestly, I am not sure which worthless party is worse.

    • Deborah Freedman | December 17, 2020 at 2:42 PM | Reply

      @d z So, you’d prefer the ACA had not passed at all? Unless you control all the wheels of power, compromise is the only way to get things done.

    • @Beatrice M which is why Loeffler and Perdue must not win. They are crooks. Loeffler sounds like a robot,and Perdue is missing in action. Only bigoted fools would think these people could represent anyone but themselves.

  18. It’s our tax money give it back! But when the rich man’s tax cuts bill needed to be passed it went in warp speed and all hands on deck.

  19. You need money Mitch for this bill? Repeal trump’s rich man’s tax bill and let the money flow back into the till of the working man.

    • Sadly, reversing the tax bill won’t return anything to our pockets. It will stay in “profits” to be divvied up between execs and shareholders. What we need is stronger wage and labor laws, tying lowest salaries to highest salaries.

    • Tessmage Tessera | December 17, 2020 at 4:04 PM | Reply

      @Suze What we need is a 92% tax bracket for billionaires.

    I’d like to see republicans live off that money and see if it’s enough! Politicians don’t realize how much things really cost in the real world!
