  1. Moscow Mitch thinks standing at a podium and claiming recovery was already underway is enough to pop the balloon. It will come to the whole country ‘Why didn’t they do this in Oct, Nov., or Dec,?? The GOP has such a low opinion of voters and Americans in general.

  2. Isn’t it refreshing to have a competent Government, and one that we don’t need Republican input to get anything done.

    HA HA WE RUN THIS 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂

  3. Covid relief – promises made, promises delivered. Real leadership!
    Now get rid of the filibuster and get the whole job done. You could start with Elizabeth Warren’s tax proposal to undo more of *rump’s economy wrecking greed.

    • What are going to do with 1400,you are mortgaging are kids future.oh wait you are in your parents basement,waiting for checks

    • @Art Turnas I love you right wingers – when *rump throws a couple of trillions to the already rich you applaud, but when support is going to families that need it and to revive the economy, you fear the end of the world is nigh.
      Unbelievable hypocrisy and stupidity.

    • Hey $1400 is better than nothing, useful during this difficult times we are in, I am thankful and use it for foods/bills to survive

    • What the are you going to do with 1400,you’re mortgaging your kids future,stop being a a parasite.,andmive out of your parents basemey

    • @Nick Warren you are just a parasite,always expecting handouts

  4. Hey the Republicans have helped me faling asleep the last few days, “My name is Sam, Sam I am Zzzzzzzzzz

      They sure haven’t helped with sleep in the past 5 or so years. trump and his cronies did nothing but keep things stirred up to get attention and cause as much aggravation as possible to those who didn’t agree with them. And even though we voted him out, he’s still out there causing problems.

      But have no problem canceling Republicans who voted to impeach.

      @Mr Bob 👍

  5. Did anybody else notice the Book that’s Front and Center, on Sara’s Book Shelf? BLACK LIVES MATTER!!

  6. One of the biggest, most serious problems not being addressed is why McConnell is not held accountable and removed. Charge him with sedition; he and his followers let Trump off the hook twice, which is unconscionable. Interesting McConnell’s corrpt wife was allowed to “resign” the day after 1/6. Who is hiding what here? Now the news cycle goes right on to the next fodder, forgetting what caused most of the problems dumped in the laps of the common citizen.

      @nottiification Spot on.
      The swamp is deep.

      And STILL supports him for 2024.

      You just can’t remove ppl from Congress cause you don’t like their political views –

    • @Jessica Robinson I agree. But McConnell and his followers completely supported dismissing charges against Trump. They rigged both Impeachment Hearings. Trump was in fact 100% guilty in both cases, many people have suffered in so many ways as direct and indirect ways. Possibly you have not suffered, but many, many millions did, are and will continue to. And McConnell directly supported dismissing both Impeachments. They did and continue to have full responsibility for their direct and indirect actions.

      @Matt F. they rigged the impeachment hearings? How is exactly

  7. None of this will matter as long as Republicans keep rigging elections, gerrymandering districts, legislating voter suppression and control the Courts.

      @Jerry P Drop the hogwash already. You are blatantly propagating a false narrative because of your delusion.
      Why wasn’t voter fraud proven with the myriad of cases presented in the courts?

    • Bob Robertson | March 14, 2021 at 9:16 PM | Reply

      @Ben Lancaster , the reason is many black people live in neighborhoods and counties where Republicans have restricted availability to voting. They will have, for example, one polling place in an area of over 100,000 residents.

    • Bob Robertson | March 14, 2021 at 9:17 PM | Reply

      We all need to obey the same rules to vote, but the ability to vote can be limited by state and local laws to make access more difficult for minorities.

    • @Jerry P yeah, under trumps watch.

    • @Bob Robertson and all of that is not how a democracy should be run, everything should and must be done to ensure that everyone who is eligible and registered can vote as easily as going to 711 to get a slurpee.

  8. What she says is true, I just can’t believe it has to be said. Politicians should been way more aware of the fact that – yeah – of course the public wants to see results after they vote in an election. The fact that that was disregarded is shocking…and explains the large disenfranchisement.

  9. Many will remember who tried to take their voting rights away. Democrats must pass the voting rights bill and insure equality to every American. No one is less than worthy.

    You’d be surprised how forever ungrateful people can be out of pure spite and willful ignorance.

  11. Cruz also threw his daughter(s) under the bus.
    Voter suppression of any sort is plain wrong!

  12. People will remember who helped them. And people will remember that not one single Republican voted for the covid relief bill.

    • No republicans are going to lie and say something like this I was in favor of the bill but a modified version that targets low income workers the hard working Americans who needed it the most.

    • Vincent Graham | March 13, 2021 at 10:14 PM | Reply

      So people in America can be bought for1400 dollars?? We have alot of weak people in America what a shame.

    • White Americans are the single largest beneficiaries of the Biden rescue bill many of which are republicans that won’t accept it was the democrats that passed the bill while republicans did absolutely none for they’re own constituents

    • Rhoda Watkins | March 14, 2021 at 10:35 PM | Reply

      @Vincent Graham We have a lot of people who desperately need money to keep a roof over their heads and food on the table.

  13. Never underestimate the bad memory and stupidity of the American voters.
    How have the Dems not learned that lesson yet?

    • macsmith2013 or the republicans will just say they were responsible for the relief and take credit for all the good the democrats did.

  14. McConnell must be sad that he can’t block everything Democrats do anymore.

  15. Robert Telles | March 13, 2021 at 1:01 PM | Reply

    Ever notice ,when Americans need some to take charge and save the country.
    A Democrat is elected.

    Well said and as long as the Democrats keep their promises, then these Ratpublicans don’t stand a chance

    • Harris supported the blm riots

    • @Randy Couch 👄You mean the protests where WS infiltrators started rioting by vandalizing and destroying property?

    • DEMOCRACY WINS | March 15, 2021 at 8:22 AM | Reply

      @Rene Curry You mean the RIGHT WING TERRORISTS arrested at Virginia riots posing as blm? Not just one incident but also busted on social media. Then i can put links where plots were stopped. Like Attomwaffen Division Nazis arrested in Oct. in Idaho. Long hit list. LONG list of plots stopped with MAGAts.

    The Republicans voted against giving Americans a helping hand and in these hard times, I hope Republican voters remember this when the Republican party comes knocking for donations.

  18. Henry Online | March 13, 2021 at 3:49 PM | Reply

    The Republicans are making themselves irrelevant. Let’s just move on without them until they grow up.

  19. Justin Credible | March 13, 2021 at 5:13 PM | Reply

    Seems those republican voters don’t seem to mind “socialism” so much now.

    • Bernard Forand | March 14, 2021 at 8:41 AM | Reply

      ONLY one reason that the republicans do not identify themselves as to what and who they are. Their technically correct definition of the republicans in the USA would be. Red Socialist Fascist Communist. Just like all the rest of the Red Socialist Fascist Communist around the world. All of them seeking the termination of Democracy. Increasing the wealth gap to extremes. Attributing truth to their identity would expose them to all the world to savor.

      Particularly the 100% wealthy socialism tax benefits that they got in 2016. Not the true socialism health care benefits better pay union jobs. Health and safety protection. Socialism historically truly founded on.

    • Chester Micek | March 14, 2021 at 12:59 PM | Reply

      Justin Credible, Donald Trump should roll out a program that would enable his minions to deposit their stimulus checks right into one of his slush fund accounts. It would be interesting to learn how many nincompoops would either refuse the money or give it to a Republican politician. You know there would be a few, but the vast majority of Trump supporters, & others like them, will take that stimulus check right to the nearest liquor store or casino,

    • Rhoda Watkins | March 14, 2021 at 10:33 PM | Reply

      @Chester Micek I live in an area where trump won, sadly, and I’ve already talked to a convenience store worker who is disgusted by the number of people who are already out spending those stimulus dollars on cigarettes, beer, and lottery tickets. I guess they can do that, but it seems like there should be more important priorities to use this rare gift on.

  20. People like Sara Nelson make me feel some hope for this messed up country.
