Warren presses Mnuchin on penalties for not protecting jobs

Warren presses Mnuchin on penalties for not protecting jobs 1


Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) asked Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin why some businesses that are getting federal funding are not required to keep their workers employed.
Congress gave Treasury the authority to dole out $500 billion to shore up mid-sized and large corporations. But unlike the Payroll Protection Program and other small-business lending facilities, which forgive loans when businesses keep employees on their payroll, Treasury did not stipulate anything about big businesses having to do the same.

      On topic…
      Remember when they didn’t put any provisions in their tax plan and nobody reinvested any of it. Remember when they needed a sustained 5% growth to break even ?
      Remember when they all had a sore back from patting themselves ?. OK, that is everyday…
      There will be a refresher tomorrow.
      See,, its not that hard to make accurate predictions.

      @AMERICAN PATRIOT so where is the other 2.5 trillion of the bill going, only 500 billion is going to the people correct, but the Republicans are holding it up because of the other 2.5 trillion and where it goes.
      Do you know where it goes?
      If you are going to make a point, at least talk about the whole subject.

    Mnuchin is a crook. Mnuchin went in after the CARES agreement was made and changed the details.

    Companies that don’t pay fed Inc tax shouldn’t get a bailout

    • Many big companies used their liquidity to by own stock.
      And they want bailout package, crazy. It’s almost I used all of my money to buy stocks and declare bankruptcy because I don’t have any cash money longer now

    • @Some Person obviously your gloating about politics… I am tryig to be neutral about this and talk about how things are beyond petty politics…. You can’t see beyond being democrat and not supporting opposing views… Monetary policy and fiscal policy are king right now. Corporation are going belly up as are Americans individually because we all drank the Kool aid and didnt save (most some are doing very well). No politics, but facts… I dont care about Trump

    • @Charles L Jones They only need bailouts because they got greedy with their first 3 trillion, misused it and know they actually owe, all in the span of about 2 months mind you.

    • Big banks should have at least 15% cash money to be used when the marked going south.
      Many banks abroad have this law just to always have aleast 15 % cash ability

    • @Willy S It’s worse then that! They used their new found wealth to to leverage loans so they could buy more stock then they could afford on their own. Then when the stock market went down they make any money to pay their interest on their loans, and were facing forfeiture, that’s why they were so desperate for their bailout. They gambled lost and want us to come to the rescue so they can get back to gambling. They have an addiction, greed, and we are their enablers.

  7. If that happens and those companies do not take responsibility or violate the rules, then Mnuchin, YOU will be held responsible! Believe it, prison will be waiting for you.

    • Terry Wolf prison is not the only punishment he should suffer he should have to repay the money along with those companies

    • @MAE Gary AGREED!

      Except Mnuchin and the rest of the crooks in this administration will get away with everything. The Senate is a useless, spineless group, and the courts have been loaded with yes men who will turn a blind eye to everything. It disgusts me to say it, but I honestly can’t see anyone being held accountable.

    • @Slutty McTits Remember, there’s about to be a new administration in office very soon.

      @Tessmage Tessera I love that Trump supporters hear someone was hired by Obama and it’s immediately Obama’s fault, but when someone was hired by Trump it’s still the dems fault. Transparent hypocrites every last one of them.😂😂😂

    • What a fawl individual munchkin head.

  10. Sen. Warren just handed Mnuchin his posterior on a silver platter. Munchkin might as well have admitted he’s shoving PPP funds out the back door and into his buddies’ bank accounts.

    • Check out “Quarantine Life ” channel. Article on profiteering off COVID. These people are pure sh#t.

      Warren would help balance Biden if she is VP.

    • @Cyndie Traylor
      I would not be mad if she were VP. That’s one smart cookie.

    • Both Mnuchin & Kushner have been busy shovelling money from out of the US Treasury, into Trump,Kushner,McConnell &Mnuchin bank accounts.

      The best part of this nefarious crime, is that the rest of the Republicans, will be left holding the bag.
      Because of their collusion & conspiracy, with the guilty parties, they will be the ones going to prison.
      If they turn evidence, a suspended sentence & no time in the Crowbar Hotel & they would be heroes, somewhat.
      Want to still support Trump???
      Kiss your spouse, your kids, grandkids, your home & your Federal Pension, that you worked so hard & campaigned for & raised money for, will be gone too.
      You gotta ask yourself this, ” Was that bastard Trump worth throwing your whole life, your freedom,your reputation, your family, your friends, your country away for? WAS IT, FOOL?

    Jellyfish Mnuchin has a trophy wife to support.

    • Mnuchin is very wealthy. But has been proven the more you have, the more you want.

    • @Charles L Jones Gary Cohn resignd from Trump admin. Trump wouldn’t listen to him when he advised Trump on the Chinese Tarrifs. Which have hurt us more then the Chinese. But Wilbur Ross is a total waste of space. Mnuchin made a lot of money on forclosures during the housing melt down.

    • @Charles L Jones I don’t think Cohn worked for Wells Fargo. I think it was Goldman Sachs.

    • @Mueller Time guess you should have listened to the 2 investigatev reporters who interviewed, on the record, 74 former Senate aides who worked in the Senate when Tara did. Lisa dejardin, and I think Dan Bush. P.B.S. Newshour last Friday. I think it was Friday. This quarantine has my days mixed up . Not what they said though. I wrote it down. Tara has some explaining to do. She wouldn’t go on P.B.S. to tell her tale of woe. Now people she worked for in the past are talking about her. Not good.

    • @Jamtommy1 never happened. Her story is falling apart.

    2,000 Americans are still dying everyday from this virus alone. What a sad thing. Someone needs to step in and liberate/help them before it’s too late.

      Not only are you bad at gaming your bad at statistics.
      2000 people are not dying every day.
      CDC website data for the last week in total was 420.
      Go do some research seriously

      @Alan aka FANG so you’re saying that all the other sources such as John Hopkins University are lying?

      @Nicholas R. Please provide me a link showing the daily death count is currently 2000 a day Nicholas.
      I don’t see that anywhere, and to answer your question, I don’t trust any of these people, but regardless, I am happy to be shown where someone is saying it’s 2000 a day and the total is 90 thousand.
      That’s not what the CDC website data says.

  14. Senator Warren, this person does not care about the workers or the small businesses. This person only cares about Republican Donors and Trump’s golf buddies. That is what this person means by MAGA.

    • @Lawrence Harris GIVE THE RICH MORE MONEY!! MAGA!!!!!

    • @fake account Even if any of that was true, it’s irrelevant to this topic.

    • @Lawrence Harris If those business can’t support themselves they should fail. That is how capitalism works. When those business’s fail it provides an opportunity for new business to emerge. New business must then improve on the old business model (better wages,benefits, service) to avoid failing themselves, this is how we progress in a capitalist society. Our current way is not capitalism, it socialism for corporations and capitolism for us, this imbalance is unsustainable.
