    Young people need to be able to get further education the problem is they can get the loans but the interest is horrendous even since they changed some of the interest rates they’re still unbelievably High I myself I’m 50 I went to school over 20 years ago to college and I’m struggling so hard to make my monthly payments for my student loans there’s got to be an easier way for our young people and it’s ridiculous other countries offer better Healthcare and educational opportunities I’m hoping the best for the future of our young kids the young adults unfortunately find it easier to sell drugs then to get into college or to make a good life legally if you aren’t eligible to go to college or a trade school you have to rely on what you know are in poverty or a little above we need help to improve our young people

    In long term people need jobs so they can work pat taxes, itvwill enables them to pay their bills and feed their families . It’s not too much to ask , in the day and age they need jobs , create jobs it’s a collective responsibility of everyone .

    Why on planet Earth even talk about “economic recovery” when they passed the 1,900 billion-dollar so-called COVID-relief bill??? Isn’t that like talking about childcare AFTER killing the baby?

    • I don’t understand what your trying to say

      @Mary Jayne I’m trying to say that you can’t do everything imaginable to COMPLETELY DESTROY the economy and then talk about “economic recovery”.

    • @Thɑт Spοk explain how this destroys the economy?

      @Mary Jayne Sorry, the ƒɑѕсіѕтs keep deleting my responses to you. My responses help minorities to be debt-free, so they are deleting them. So take a look in your channel under Discussion, I placed my response there.

  6. Build back better. Follow up with a huge infrastructure works bill. Put people to work, build a new foundation for the country for the future with an emphasis on sustainable green energy and reduced carbon emissions.

  7. Capitalism is the target.

    It’s never going to get better with democrats in office

  9. The way that brother broke it down makes me hopeful

      The lies about this bill are huge. It’s for the people. It’s a step in the right direction.

    • @Mark Campbell I completely agree there are so many other things to argue about… Like the middle class disappearing

  10. This is what MSNBC should be reporting! Something that we ALL relate to! C’mon America….let’s help each other out!

  11. Russell Williams | March 12, 2021 at 3:09 PM | Reply

    Doesn’t being referred to as capital make anyone else uncomfortable? We’re Human first and foremost and we all deserve that dignity. Capital feels like that’s something that designed to be exploited.

    • thats how capitalism do….internalize profits, externalize losses. HUMAN RESOURCES is an unpleasant term. We are expendable in capitalism.

    • I’m not sure the CEO of Robin Hood whose company stole from the poor and gave to the rich in the Game Stop stock is the best guest.

    why is the financial help not recurring? why is the help means tested? why is the predominance of help tied to work? a one time payment helps one time.

      Probably because they fear bankrupting the Treasury. I think their idea is to stimulate a rebound and some growth. Whether or not it succeeds remains to be seen.

  13. Fun fact: America’s poverty rate has been between 10-15% since 1965, yet at around 40 million people, that is the same as 1960, 1993, and 2009.
    So not a whole lot of progress. We can do better. Thanks Joe! 🙌🙏

  14. America can never be the richest country in the world when you have people suffering through this difficult time.
    The amount of billionaires in your country is bad that not enough of them is doing their part to help out the poor.!!

  15. President Biden needs that Black man in his team.. He has ideas that can sure work and help the next generation to a better way of life.
    America has to change their rhetoric ways and move forward into a more real modern world..!!

    People are making an egregious mistake sqying they “don’t want a hand out, they want a hand up” what do you think a hand up is? Giving them the funds they need to lift themselves up is a hand up. They are literally the same thing. But Gee, doesn’t that saying provide a perfect excuse to never consider giving the poor money and instead sit around pretending to contemplate the ever elusive creature that is a hand up. They act like it’s in the same realm of fairy tail as unicorns and dragons. Some amazing, awe inspiring beast that would be so cool in our world but we all understand is fantasy. The American dream is poison. If you just work hard enough, you can have it all. And if you don’t have it all then you just didn’t work hard enough and thus your poverty is earned. People, my husband and I have held up to five jobs at a time between us and still could barely make ends meet BEFORE the pandemic. How much harder do they think I should be working? If we could cram a sixth job in there would we then be worthy of making the same amount of money they do with just one nine to five income? An income that puts a five bedroom house, a range rover, a mercedes, private school to their kids, a vacation every summer and maybe a couple four wheelers tightly in their grasp and they never have to worry about whether the diapers are going to run out. We poor people, this is life for us, welcome to the s:!+$show middle America. Don’t worry, we’ll have you fixing your own dye job, doing your own nails and actually giving a crap about the wellbeing of others. (Crazy, I know but just hear me out) You haven’t been to the bar in forever? It’s okay because a $3 bottle of wine is now where your price range is. Movie theaters? Nope. Restaurants? You don’t need them. There are copy cat recipes from your favorite eateries on the internet. Out of food altogether? Let me introduce you to my girl grace at the food pantry, she’s got your back. Look, the entirety of low income americans are resourceful, compassionate, and quite honestly worn the fk out with the demands that we give you top notch service at every single need or want point in their day or night. And without fail they drive through dunkin donuts for their morning 15 adjective long coffee and they see my roots need touched up they have the epic gall to say, “I bet you can’t wait for every thing to open back up so you can get to the salon.” (Insert me blinking and clenching my jaw to hold back my tongue and reduce the effectiveness of my eyes locking on the target because I still need this job)
    And I’m white! That’s my life WITH my privilege. Black and brown people have it even worse by a minimum of five orders of magnitude!
    And you cannot tell me that they don’t know how black people are treated here. What they are afraid of is that equality means they too will have to limbo under the barbed wire fence they so lovingly built. They are fully cognizant of ALL of it. I’ve had enough of the cognitive dissonance machine. I’m done begging, pleading, cajoling to get the trumpsers to stop stupiding all of us to death. If the wanna lemming their base, who am I to stand in their way. Besides, it keeps them occupied while we get some actual work done.

      I disagree. When I was heroin addict the money I got straight from the government could be turned into heroin. Whilst training me up to get a better job was essentially useless. Giving me money to buy heroin was better than not giving me money to buy heroin.

  17. What a crock! Increasing asset prices without appropriate capital gains taxes is the underlying economic disease. It is the erosion of the value of our currency. How long has there been affordable housing efforts at the same time the motivation to increase housing values and reduce capital gains taxes with every passing tax relief bill? And yet it’s economic crisis after economic crisis. This is feel good rhetoric, sorry Stephanie.

    Wes, Stephanie, John, only Divine timing has uniquely prepared you to “tee-up” this synergistic opportunity.
    I hear your hearts, and vow to do my part.

  19. And everyone better remember how well Ronald Dump did addressing this pandemic. He wants you to remember that he was responsible for the response.

    Oh boy, was he.

    The dude wants a Democrat run government to create jobs that serve no purpose and to dilute the skills pool so everybody makes less money. Sounds like socialism to me.
