  1. Vote them out! They are supposed to be working for you!

    • The only thing Trump and his Trumpwellian administration has offered the Nation in the past 11 months is COVFEFE – COVid For Everyone For Ever.

    • Too late except for Georgia.

    • Unfortunately Congress will be Out of session on January 3rd because the new Politicians are coming into Office. If Congress goes out of session before the 10 day window the stimulus deal automatically dies. So if President Trump does nothing the bill dies. If this 10 day window was not a factor & President Trump did nothing the stimulus deal would automatically become law. I believe the King in the White House is a pathological liar & con artist, there will Not be any $2000 stimulus checks but Section 230 will be eliminated creating even more chaos & panic in the USA leading to Civil War which Russia needs also to come right into the USA & take over with the King as Dictator before Uncle Joe becomes President. Hopefully if Uncle Joe does become President, I would want a short term Military Draft with also women started immediately concerning Russia, China, Iran, etc.

      @Sal C you should tattoo TRUMP on your lower back so that way you’ll never forget to hate him. It’s great to keep blaming all of the problems on him.

  2. Its time for REVOLT they’re playing games with all our Ives c’mon people haven’t we suffered enough!!

    • @Heritage Karma I bet he count’s he blessings for that. You live in a shithole country, as Trump would put it

    • The military is way too powerful. How you gonna defend against drone attacks on your own soil? Fully militarized police, security, and armed forces? Yeah… You really don’t know what youre proposing. Now a tax strike… That could do some damage.

    • @Welsed that’s exactly what I’m imposing. Violence won’t solve a thing in fact its what Trump and his cultists want to enact martial law we’re not dumb

    • @Welsed All that money spent on ‘defense’ and look what happened in Nashville. All that money sure helped alot huh?

      And I see the indoctrinated as well as the paid trolls have nothing to argue when an adult steps in the room. Keep it up children…you will succumb to your own arrogance. Those in power know exactly how to jerk your chains to compliance. You are no more than your actions regardless of how loud your voice.

  3. “… Any State, Any Entity, Any Ideology that Fails to Recognize The Worth, The Dignity, The Rights of Man, That State is Obsolete.“ Rod Serling’s prophetic closing remarks warning from the Twilight Zone: The Obsolete Man aired June 2, 1961, The Obsolete Man aired June 2, 1961 Fifty Nine Years and Six months ago. What a truly prophetic vision the future and the past 3 years 11 months this nation as gone through. No Truer words have ever been spoken about a future we now live in. Keep in prayer the families and loved ones of the 340,146 souls who have lost their lives (as of this posting) to the Corona Virus Pandemic in the U.S. and for those who minister to the 28,581 in Severe and Critical (as of this posting) who are in the hospital ICUs with this virus. “When people fear their Government, there is tyranny, when the Government fears the people, there is Liberty.” – Thomas Jefferson

  4. Republicans are turning into the miserable and mentally ill party (Qanon)!! They have nothing better to do with their time!!

    • Please be advised if it wasn’t for a whole bunch of Republicans voting against Trump trump would have gotten re-elected.

    • Spencer Calvert | December 27, 2020 at 2:40 PM | Reply

      With children going hungry and homeless increasing at levels of the Great Depression in his face trump is adding to the pain of our country by stalling relief. This isn’t human

    • Paula Champagne | December 27, 2020 at 2:40 PM | Reply

      It wasn’t always this way. It breaks my heart. I grew up republican but with an open mind. As a social worker I struggle to help people but feel helpless at times

    • @Truck Taxi You seriously want to give credit to someone for doing that ABSOLUT minimum of voting against a man that is CLEARLY not fit to be POTUS? How low of a bar do you set for people? Someone out there voted for him with mindset that ‘at least he DIDn’t shoot someone on 5th avenue’ – That’s pretty pathetic

    • @Truck Taxi so you are saying if people didn’t vote for Biden trump would have won ? That’s profound !

  5. If you get kicked out of your home, you need to camp out in front of the White House!

    • Better yet, camp out on one of Trump’s golf courses. Pick a hole, pitch a tent.

    • Warmer on the golf course at Mar-a-lago

      @MaStEr COoK83 You know nothing beyond your own little mind of how things work. But go ahead lead the charge in a revolution smart guy see how quickly your put down. Fool

    • @Arkay The Divine and you know nothing of what I know. I guarantee im not alone with this feeling! You can continue to walk around on strings enjoying spoon fed B.S. they like the dumb and blind!!

    • @Carlos Carlos Texas….houston has very high numbers. Gov. Abbott opened up the courts to sue for credit card debt and evictions mid May.

  6. Republicans have always cared for their wallets over Americans. It’s why they can never hold majority power in America again.

    • @Kc 82 that’s not a thing lol. Also, historically it was the democrats doing this, it was very clearly republican voters and leaders who have passed legislation in favor of human rights, go look up the votes during the original Civil rights movements.

    • Thomas Armsworthy Jr | December 27, 2020 at 3:40 PM | Reply

      I hope Trump does not sign the bill…there is way too much pork in the bill. That pork could help needy Americans..I do not want $600 I want $2000
      I’m glad that Blackwater got their pardons

    • @Thomas Armsworthy Jr Thank you, but really there was no need to prove how disgusting republicans are, but i appreciate your effort.

    • You are correct, that’s why the GOP are willing to let Trump go has far has possible to try to steal this election away from Biden. The GOP know that Biden will push for voter rights and protections that will put an end to all of their hard work in trying to suppress voter turnout and illegal voter purges that they’ve been using for decades to get and hold on to power! If you search here on youtube, there’s a video of Trump talking to a bunch of GOP members telling them that Republicans would never be able to win any free and fair election unless they stop minorities and other groups from being able to cast votes. Could you imagine how dangerous Trump would have been if he actually had common sense, the guy just can’t help but to monolog his master plan to the world like a bad B movie villain!

    • @Corelious C oh you’re talking about 1862.youre behind the times

  7. vote for Ossoff and Warnack flip the senate blue for any chance of relief

  8. Treat your citizens at least as well as your stray animals: feed & shelter them, if you cannot otherwise manage to ease the pain of their marginalization

  9. Trump wants financial ruin for most Americans. His goal is to leave Biden with a complicated economy to restore. Trump has always been a loser.

    • My darlings, my sweet and adorable devout devotees of the non-theist secular postmodernist fundamentalist religion of compassionate humanism: Covid, embracing its authenticity, is fluid in its identity. Search the sanctified scriptures: No woke, evolved, science-based, aware, Left-leaning White people are justified in complaining about anything; Whiteness confers infinite privilege that allows one to overcome any adversity. HALLELUJAH!

      Trump wants corruption outta the bill tell the truth

    • Wait, Y’all actually believe this lol?

    • @Paul Drusbasky
      Trump Pardons Corruption.

    • Vantavious Williams | December 27, 2020 at 5:08 PM | Reply

      @Corelious C fool we’re living it

  10. I am just waiting for Donald Trump to call this relief bill a Democratic Hoax, it’s what he does and how he deflects blame. He is upset

  11. We need more food banks and FEMA trailers to house the evictees for the next couple of years.

  12. Our president and our government threw the American people under the bus

    • Oh Yeah, biggly, tremendously epically, the best

    • @MR. NØßODI I hope things improve for you and many other Americans very soon.🙏

    • @Joshuahj Farquharm. Be heard

    • @Thomas Armsworthy Jr Well, aren’t you the cheer for the day. Back in your box. Money means food and heat to many people, you must have plenty to be so smug

    • @Thomas Armsworthy Jr pork so how much do you think jethro Trump will taste like bacon I bet even Mitch is getting sized up Hannibal going to finish his off his wife going to make him fall on chop sticks again ohh sure Mitch fell sure he did rush Limbaugh cancer dan bong go go cancer y’all are being Epsteined

  13. You’re assuming he’s going to sign it. He lost the election. He doesn’t care how many people are going to be homeless and hungry. He doesn’t care about you, his stupid base.

    • i support him not signing this garbage

    • Tori O people like you are why were so divided as a country not everyone shares the same opinion as you doesn’t make them stupid i feel democrats are pretty stupid after the “peaceful protests” that has zero to do with race and actually further hurts the black community

    • @joe guy you contradicted yourself within one run on sentence. “Not everyone shares the same opinion as you doesn’t make them stupid”
      When their opinion of what a protest and blm achieves is being called “stupid” by you. I don’t think I’ve seen a more clear example of a hypocrite besides Lynsey Graham

    • Thomas Armsworthy Jr | December 27, 2020 at 3:45 PM | Reply

      I hope he does not sign the f..bill
      There is way too much pork in the bill that pork could give Americans more of a stimulus
      Instead of $600 I want $2000
      The main stream media fails to tell you that.
      Plus there is a moratorium on evictions

    • @Thomas Armsworthy Jr well billions in ui to desperate people have gone down last nite as senator toomey said most people have not lost anything/would you give 4000 tp a couple making 6 figures what about the other aid its a small check but till after jan and the other aid is huge for ppp and rent and ui

  14. Farm workers need to be vaccinated. They are feeding the medical staffs.

    • Farm workers don’t belive in covid

    • Yea except they 99.9 % Trumpers and probably still think the virus is fake

    • Why? Raising a pig out on a farm in the boondocks isn’t exactly front line work. And calling the virus a hoax and refusing to accept personal responsibility for societies greater good should be an automatic back of the line offense. Farmers have received far more social benefit than most Americans during these last few years.

  15. All other devloped Countries have these protections for their citizens

  16. The well paid talking heads continue to avoid the key problem. No, it’s not that some might face “financial ruin”, it’s that plenty already are facing that. The expiration of the eviction moratorium in the middle of the winter is truly despicable.

  17. Every other countries understand this concept but America

  18. Of course sexual harassment has gone up…the POTUS absolutely condones this kind of behavior!
    It’s sickening!!!

    • I can Imagine how many men would have thought trumps acts and the way he speaks about women were acceptable. He most definitely encourages sexual-harassment. There is so much wrong with what he encourages, I don’t know where to begin.

    • @Rita Review well Trump is pay to play and I hope you don’t think Trump gets it with looks or intellect

    • @Big Alls Looks and intellects are 2 words which don’t belong in a sentence with the DJT in it.

    • America is full of immature selfish racist mosynystic a*sholes. Donny boy has opened the doors to the most vile depravity, making these very vile people feel emboldened and self righteous in their treatment of others. So much needs to change.

  19. WHEN has trump EVER DONE WHAT IS RIGHT FOR ANYONE ELSE BUT HIMSELF ? Anyone know any republican that has ?

  20. How failed is capitalist logic? You have a former Treasury secretary worrying that a single direct payment to workers will “overheat the economy.” They are DELUSIONAL.
