  1. Munchin is screwing over the middle class 10 times over!

    . SEN Rick Scott, Gov DESANTIS.. DEO EXECUTIVE KEN LAWSON……… only 5% of Claims have been Processed!

  3. Mnuchin’s Billion-Dollar-5-Finger-Discount
    And trump has his greasy, tiny fingers in the cookie jar as well: His hotels are crumbling and he is laying off people (which is a scandal in and itself, considering he is the president and claims to be a billionaire).

      @Nicole Cordova I agree. For years now since Trump has been in office, when I saw him cutting multi billions of dollars from every resource that supports our poor, homeless, hungry, seniors, children and veterans, I have been financially supporting charities. St.Jude, Shriners, Feeding America, Food for the poor, Wounded Warriors Project, Paralyzed Veterans, Fellowship of Christian and Jews, Jewish Voices. , Special Olympics, National Law Enforcement. Only $ 20 each a month. Changing them up. 5 at a time and help people on the street. I believe in helping as Christ said when we help them we are helping him. I am retired on VA Compensation and Disability. They need help more than ever now. He said leftist say the dumbest things well I guess I am a dumb Independent. Like Trump attacking people intelligence to make himself look smart. Those trumpers need to shut the f* ck up and support our poor or do as Trump told them. Liberate themselves gather together, but please wear no masks.

      @Nicole Cordova I agree, but what I wrote made them worse.

      @Nicole Cordova Nicole. I pray to God they can’t. Our poor, middle class and all others. Especially Trump administration. This nut is talking about people taking disenfectant to fight Corvid19.

  4. Why doesn’t the Intel community remove a president that won due to Russia? He is actively destroying America.

  5. Don’t blow smoke. Mnuchin ain’t done $hit for us, the American people. He only cares about the 1%.

    We’re not in the second inning of a nine-inning game.

    It’s the opening kickoff and we kicked it off to coronavirus and they ran it back for 6. That’s where we’re at in this game. It just started and coronavirus is up six

    You can tell when the president’s lying because his lips are moving

    The grim reaper can visit Moscow Mitch any day now.

  9. We need to vote all things republican out of office before the country is bankrupt.

  10. Hey, maybe have a look at how other countries are managing this – Canada, Australia, New Zealand and some of Europe.

    • @J can you read English well ?. look again . less people than chicago , STUPID .

    • @J AUSTRALIA deports New Zealand people like we do mexicans . what trash .

    • @Robert Lavelle You’e right. USA has less than 5% of the the world’s population but has more than 25% of covid 19 cases and deaths!

    • @LUIS VELEZ Yes. New Zealand doesn’t have less people than Chicago

    • Jeff Chrapcynski | April 23, 2020 at 4:15 PM | Reply

      @Robert Lavelle it’s asinine to compare Mexico and Canada to United States. OK Einstein here’s a question for you. Why are Mexicans still trying to come to America if it’s so bad as you say? I would love to hear your response but I’m sure you have none.

  11. Is America ready for the idea the rich should step up and pay their bloody share?

  12. *People who are born into privilege, always debate whether those who are not, deserve equality.🤷‍♂️*

    🙄 #TrumpsBrokenAmerica*

    • Mike R A little jealous, perhaps?

    • Those born into privilege forget that without the little guy their fortunes would dwindle. It has been the little guy producing, packaging, selling, and delivering most of what fills their bank accounts…

    • @Dana Lee 100% true that’s why I’m laughing now

    • @Dana Lee Maintaining Jeff Bezos exuberant wealth depends on the little people working on the lines at the distribution centres and other Amazon ventures.

      Jim McLoughlin 👏👏👏👏 Hello from the U.K. couldn’t agree more! My mum always said during the war Churchill was the right leader, after the war we needed change, my mum and dad both being socialists voted for Clement Attlee. Ordinary people, soldiers, sailors and men in the merchant navy including my dad, along with people in the U.K. who were being bombed, killed and losing everything, they were the people that defeated the Nazis. It’s amazing when you think our country was on its knees and yet they created the wonderful NHS. Yet the richest country in the world, who by the way prospered very well during the war, do not have a healthcare system for all their citizens. I can’t believe how people can lose their homes due to the astronomical cost of health insurance. Most capitalists societies are based on greed, but the USA is the greediest. There’s a quote and I paraphrase it “ you can always see how civilised a country is by the way they treat their poor, vulnerable and aged”.

  13. THE FIRST WE NEED TO DO IS GET TRUMP OUT OF OFFICE or there’s not going enough people left to keep business going

    Repeal the tax cuts that the superrich received, and save the country with a teeny amount of socialism for all. Not just for the 1%.

    • no,I vote we exterminate the %1…they are the virus.

    • Chris Maestas | April 23, 2020 at 1:09 PM | Reply

      Let’s take it all, and give them, minimum paying jobs and tax them 70%. And divide that recovered money 355.000.000 ways, and live the high life. While the 1% suffers. 5.000.000 is more than 1% but I figured in, Trump supporters, and gang bangers, and prisoners, and some questionables, and Illegal aliens. Though I dont hate Them they can do it right and earn, the right to stay. We could have a fresh start with all one class. Thousanares! I can dream can’t I ? And unlike Trump I,d spread it around. Besides I,d need alot of help to pull it off, wouldn’t I?

      @Mike R I say tax them 60% but no more than 80%. They can still live off very comfortably on $5,000,000 a year. The majority of the taxes can go to those who actually contribute to society in the form of Universal Income. Given to people such as, but not limited to, nurses, teachers, school staff of all areas, cafeteria staff of all areas, farmers, police officers, firefighters, construction workers, super market workers, and everyone else that makes the community function and run. Whatever is left is given to other people within the nation, because they deserve it too, why not. It isn’t resource-based economy level of awesomeness, but it is the first step to the right direction to keep the nation from complete collapse due to sheer stupidity.

  15. The UK government is paying 80% of furloughed staff’s salaries. If we can afford it, so can you! Just need the will to help and support ordinary people! Stay safe 🌈

    • @Shabby Balls I agree however our government is still supporting those in need and that is a good thing. We can battle out the details at a later date. For now, let’s just make sure everyone is safe and can afford to eat. That is what a real government does! I am not a Tory by any stretch but they have been surprisingly socialist in their response.

      @olesammie Of course, we all need to look after each other. The Staff are entitled to help as they have paid their Taxes and N.I. However those fortunate enough to have wealth beyond the needs of any man have a moral responsibility to ease the burden on the Gov in these extreme times.

      A Scot here yes they are but they arent paying new starts that started a new job before the 18th of March to which I am one of them left a job I had for 14 year for a better pair job then two weeks after starting my new job I was told I was no longer needed gave three weeke wages as a goodwill gesture cant get universal credit and dont want it because it leaves people in debt. A UBI should be paid to everyone during the lockdown

    • @Shabby Balls totally agree but we both know they won’t, because they won’t it is right and proper that the government help those who are being shafted by the wealthy. My only advice to those employees is to find a job with a reputable company, not that that is easy when your opportunities are limited. The important overriding consideration is to protect and help those who need it through no fault of their own. Regards.

  16. These large companies can get virtually no interest loans with their assets. They don’t need a penny from taxpayers.

    • CEO bonuses and stock divendends are also still being paid by a lot of these companies and there in lies a big part of the problem.

      In Canada we call them corporate welfare bums, a phrase coined by Ed Broadbent.

    • Wouter Banning | April 24, 2020 at 8:03 AM | Reply

      Large companies should get their shareholders to step up to save their investment. Why should taxpayers bail out these companies? Taxpayers do not receive a windfall when the investors get a share of profits.

    • i agree that they should not get tax payer money but they are not getting zero-interest loans

    Has Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse return the $20M? A publicly traded hospitality group? Thank you, Shake Shack, for returning the $10M.

    If you want to know what Mnuchin is read Aaron Glantz’s book “Homewreckers”. Criminals are running our government.
