100 thoughts on “Senate stimulus bill contains cash payments, unemployment for Americans

  1. Easter? Is this a joke? Then to follow that with,” the health and safety is top priority “ we need a solid 2 months.

  2. So we are down with socialism? What the hell do you think this bill is? The general public not being able to manage money is the real problem. It cannot be fixed by us paying ourselves with our taxes…

  3. WHY DO GOP'ERS ONLY GO TO FOX FOR INTERVIEWS & STATEMENTS? THEY OWN HALF OF THE PEOPLE IN BROADCASTING. EVEN, DISNEY/AT&T TIME WARNER. FOX IS THEIR GO TO ORIGINAL, I GUESS.

  4. Keep in mind that any kind of monetary CHECK is considered a "CONTRACT". By signing the back of the check and cashing it, by law, it becomes a contractual agreement between two parties. The one writing the check and the one cashing the check. The QUESTION is: Since nothing is for FREE, what does the American public owe or have to do for the Federal Government after they accept the money by cashing the checks? Forced vaccinations? Paying back the money with a high interest rate? WHAT? There is absolutely NO Disclosure as to whether or not a person is selling their soul, by receiving this Federal HELP or if the money is a free gift with no other liabilities attached to it.

    You be the judge. Selling your soul for a months worth of wages might haunt you for the rest of your life. DO YOUR RESEARCH.

  5. Trump worshippers still thinking it's a hoax, but too busy dumping stock. They are vapid, empty, soulless shells; seeking corporate handouts & hindering Pandemic control efforts. Pro-life hypocrites.

  6. I wouldn't hold my breath people, schumer and Nancy will hold it up again, they will want it rigged so they can launder a big chunk of it, they need the dollars you know

  7. These democrats are out of hand, specifically Nancy Pelosi, what an opportunist. How dare she take advantage of the situation for political gain what a sick person.

  8. The Democrats won’t get a cut of the Stimulus so they are holding off! “Let Them Eat Cake”. That is Nancy.

  9. This is stupid arguing over whether low income people will get to much for unemployment. Companies that might get to much no issue? Pass it as is lets get this over with.

  10. Nobody is watching the Fake News anymore. Stress-positioning fatigue. Bring on the water-boarding! National Guard troop carriers forcing Seniors into mini-vans, heading to FEMA concentration camps. That's when you get people's attention! Pictures of corpse piles outside the Churches after mass-infection Easter service, must be in the communion Kool Aid! Now you got everyone's attention! Americans have been trained since nursery school: "listen and repeat". Listen to the Government:Media Pravda, then spam-queen your homies: FEAR-PANIC-HATE!

  11. The alcoholic wants another drink.
    The adulterer wants another affair.
    The prideful wants another compliment.
    The covetous wants another dollar.
    The jealous wants what you have.
    The lustful wants another peek.
    The sluggard wants another freebie.
    The rebellious wants to get away again.
    The apostate wants your tolerance

  12. Whatever the bill contains for regular Americans, you can bet your sweet a** it contains ice cream, bells and whistles for the wealthy and corporations. That's the GOP way.

  13. Democrats will only use this as another excuse to diss Trump. They wanted him to fail November 8 2016 when he was elected. Impeachment didn't work so a crisis of this nature is clearly his fault. The problem Democrats don't realize in their near sighted vision is the fact that they're included in this pandemic. Let's get the show on the road and do what's good for all of Americans. We don't need any pork just results.

  14. Read the bill to the American citizens so we know what is truly in this bill before our president signs it. Don't trust the criminal representatives who have been unmasked. Hold all accountable who deceives the American citizens in this bailout!

  15. The behavior of Nancy and Chuck discussed me. I was on the fence about who I'd vote for in November,

    Trump has my vote, the Democrats are not puting the people above politics!

  16. Fauci is NOT working for you. He is a deep state swamp creature that wants Trump out. He wants the nation to go into a recession to get rid of Trump. DO NOT TRUST THIS OBAMA HOLD OVER.

  17. There will be no vote thanks to Lindsey Graham and Rick Scott of FL. They've decided to roadblock it. Gee I'm shocked. Hopefully, they're among those 'willing to die for the economy.' Here's hoping!

  18. Nancy don't care. She said " I ain't getting anything out of this, I'll read when I read it, word to my windfarm brothers ".

  19. The Bill has to go through both arms of Congress before becoming an Act. Dems are seeking ongoing payments to workers and better oversight of the $500 billion spend on corporations.
    You can't forecast how long the epidemic will last till after you've gone through the peak. The US hasn't even reached the peak yet.

  20. Congress puts a 25 million dollar raise for themselves in the bill… I'm speechless.. sick sick sick non humans are running this show…

  21. How I long for a day the American people citizens put their differences aside and take up arms and do what needs to be to done to these senile wimps.

  22. +ALWAYS THE FAR LIBERAL RADICAL LEFT PUTTING STUFF THAT ISN’T NECESSARY for this Particular Stimulus Package***Dems wanted to insert something related to abortions-the hoax global warming?? Are they Crazy or What!. They Do Always Rise for the Moment*

  23. Don't forget about helping put people on ssdi and ssi we need extra help to mr president don't leave us in the dark to die take care of all Americans not just some

  24. Many seniors are helping younger people with their Social Security….not fair to talk about us as selfish narcissists. some pay student loans, others meals after school for grandchildren. Once more I'm seeing how narrow the sympathies are among comment sections.

  25. Americans should vote on senators and representatives for pay raises, not letting them vote for their own salaries, that's just plain stupid and Americans have been letting them get away with it for decades…..🤪

  26. Average Americans get squat while 🍄rump and the a Rethuglicans line their pockets! Toothless oversight that will allow crooked Mnuchin to dole out billions to millionaires.

  27. In a time of crisis they're at home and not at work! Real BRILLIANT!!! I'm going to remember when voting time comes! "Republicans for house!!!!!!!!🙏

  28. i bet when nancy get the bill she will hold it for 33 day like she did with impeachment papers . she is pure evil.

  29. Nancy Pelosi says: So what if needy people have to wait longer for the relief bill. We want our piece of the action! "Let them eat cake"

  30. Yes this bill needed to be passed by our government. The American people will get some money from our government which is better than nothing.

  31. This is uber stupid bill on steroids. Small business is the base of the economy. I HAVE TO ABSOLUTELY BELIEVE AT THIS POINT THERE WILL BE A DEPRESSION NO QUESTIONS ASKED. GOD ALL THE THINGS TO SAY I COULDNT EVEN TYPE THEM ALL. IT'S COMING PROOF IS IN THE PUDDING LOOK.

  32. Discriminate against disabled people with low or no income from sercumestances beyond their control and dont get any financial help as well, it makes people feel left out AND WE NEED TO REMEMBER THIS WHEN WE VOTE they all are still Us citizen that need the help the most.

  33. Remember that trump and the GOP gutted the CDC for the last three years, and they have yet to do anything about the pandemic during these last two months that the Democrats did not force them to do. FACTS MATTER !!

  34. Remember that trump and the GOP gutted the CDC for the last three years, and they have yet to do anything about the pandemic during these last two months that the Democrats did not force them to do. FACTS MATTER !!

  35. say a couple works at burger king they will get a 1 time check of $2400, another couple laid off from from burger king will get half there check in unemployment plus $2400 for 4 months just not right

  36. what would really happen, each of those 2 laid off people from burger king, each would get $2400 bring it up to $4800 for 4 months

  37. I’m hearing it’s going to wind up being $6 trillion. These things always end up in disaster. But let’s face it: we’ve done it to ourselves.

  38. See I told you and hear this again. They can create all the digital dollars they want to. We will never pay it back and we don't have to either. Find a book about money creation a good read at this time.

  39. Lets talk about the 4.2 trillion in the fed..? Lets talk about the billions we needed to prepare, and now were sending everyone cash..?

  40. This proves right here we need to severely reform our government. Not just Federal but for the Individual States as well. Full blown constitutional amendment tsunami!!! If we aren't able then we need to bring all of our ideas together and create a new one.😤. After all our Founding fathers gave us the right to do so if that time ever came to that.🦅🇺🇸😇

  41. And dr. fauci reminds me of Goethe's Faust; the man who sold his soul to the devil. You know we could beat this in record time; if we want to; we're America. It's not the same kind of flu as the one in Italy. And why does the Left and the fake media always insist Pres. Trump have Dr. Faust at his side? This I fear might be a prelude to their next deception.

  42. if delaying Ukraine aid is impeachable, so well with Pelosi delaying American aid impeachable too…adding to it held American hostage with her demand funds has nothing to do with coronavirus bill…taking this opportunities for their own glory…their saying" never let CRISIS go to waste"..

  43. This is tough i had ordered equipment and doubled my space and now this? Its hard out there .

  44. 1200 measly dollars for Americans, while business owners get fresh 0% interest grants (all they have to do is let their brother go and then 'rehire' him).

  45. so if i'm getting $ 300 unemployment benefits from the state .. where is the $ 600 going to come from ? the IRS ?
