  • These packages have been a tremendous amount of money and we know for sure that we haven't gotten very much so most definately the money is going somewhere just not to the common people. This looks more and more everyday to be nothing but the biggest scam going. So many people with out jobs or money and this is how everyone is being treated.... throwing us a bone every now and then. All I can say is America will never be great again. This is the biggest shame on this country ever. The first stimulus check didn't last people at all to pay bills etc and the second one was for what... This third is going to be the same thing... O I'm sorry the government didn't give me enough to pay all of you... here I'll give you 20 and I'll give you 30 and so on and so on... This virus has been over a year now and our government could care less... all they want to do is keep delaying... I can not imagine anyone being proud of this country in a time of need. I can't imagine any other fore coming devastation and what this government will do. God help us all.

  • The biggest fraud of Republicans on blue-color workers is convincing them that Democrats will take away their hunting guns. There is not an iota of truth to that, but it keeps them glued to the GOP -- thus unwittingly helping it push through its own agenda that does nothing for blue-color folks. You’d think they’d eventually wise up to this, but it’s been decades without any inkling that they’ve been duped. And they can thank Fox News for that and for keeping them in the “Dems will take away your guns” stupor in perpetuity.

  • Jesus Christ saves from sin. Romans 3: 23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; Hebrews 9: 27 And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment: Isaiah 64: 6 But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away. Revelation 21: 8 But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death. Romans 5: 8 But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. John 3: 16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. John 14: 6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. Romans 10: 9-10. That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. Jesus said John 5: 24 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life. 1John 5: 10-13 He that believeth on the Son of God hath the witness in himself: he that believeth not God hath made him a liar; because he believeth not the record that God gave of his Son. And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life. These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God. Ephesians 2: 8-9 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast. Romans 8: 1 There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. 1 Corinthians 15: 3-4 For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures: 2 Corinthians 5: 21 For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him. ..................................................................................................................................................................................................................................

You all were canceled way longer than you know. Now you want to ruin our lives, because you can’t face the fact that you ruined your own reporter careers and lives. No bueno Jose! I’d suggest you all knock it off and start listening to both sides instead of canceling one, before you find everyone will be on the canceled side and you few despotics on that side will ensure that nobody ever voted Democratic again.

This seems to me that it's more about a power trip then caring about the American people that actually make up this country and what it used to stand for. These politician's need to quit acting like toddlers having a temper tantrum and pass the bill already before this turns into a bigger problem that could have been prevented.

  • The way the filibuster is supposed to work is that a Senator may stand in the Senate and talk for as long as he wants until a 60-vote majority tells him to shut it - OR S/HE RUNS OUT OF THINGS TO SAY. At that point, the vote on the Bill can move forward. A vote of Cloture is ONLY REQUIRED TO STOP A SENATOR FROM TLKAING. It is NOT required if no Senators are trying to take the floor. if a Senator claims s/he is taking the floor, they have to say something. They can't just stand there not talking, or leave the room, or do other things. The way it currently works is that the GOP threatens to "filibuster", and the Democrats roll over like cowards. What the Democrats COULD do, but have not, is this: 1. they hold a vote on cloture (the vote to end discussion) 2. the GOP votes against it 3. The Democrats say, OK, then, who is talking? 4. The GOP can then put someone up to talk. 5. The moment that guy runs out of things to say, the Democrats can say "This is now over, unless there is another Senator who wants to talk". THEY DO NOT HAVE TO HOLD ANOTHER VOTE UNLESS THERE IS ACTUALLY A SENATOR THERE TALKING. ONCE THE SENATOR STOPS TALKING, ITS OVER. 7. Now that the discussion is over, they hold a vote on the bill, just a normal majority vote, up or down, on the merits of the bill. 6. If the GOP continues to put Senators up to hold the floor, that's fine. The Democrats can then go and do other things, including hoilding press conferences discussing the stupidity and partisan nonsense that the GOP is displaying on the Senate floor right then. They can also interrupt and make their own points on the floor, they DO NOT have to allow the GOP to just lie and blather nonsense without repercussions or reply.

  • Less money for the people but the bill is still 1.9 trillion, 🤔 9% is for covid! The rest for special interests. What a joke! Biden is already the worst president ever!!!

  • I'm sure the republicans love the filibuster so they can block any progress the next four years. Btw, isn't it weird the reason republicans don't want an overhaul of the voting eligibility laws is because more people voting hurts them. One republican law maker from Arizona said as much a few days ago. What is democracy if not all Americans can, or have the same right to vote!?

  • If I made 150k a year I would consider myself rich. I've never made more than 35k a year never!

    • Its actually not "rich" at all, especially in Southern NY. 160k is an average middle class family income, but taxes are also very high (10k+/year) in many households as opposed to much lower pay and taxes in other states. I appreciate being considered "rich", but its simply false, and we have also struggled through the plandemic.

  • Americans: _We've been stuck in a deadly natural disaster for a year straigh, we need emergency help!_ Republicans in Congress: _We shall drag this out as long as possible, by any means possible, for the only and explicit purpose of _*_not_*_ providing any help to our own country, our own citizens, our own constituents. While we get fat off their duly paid taxes._ I swear you can't make this sh*t up. I hope their electorate remember this the next time they're taking you, your health snd safety, your life - your vote - for granted. They do not give one single iota of a f**k about whether you and your family live, or die, whether you die of covid or your children literally starve to death. And no, they won't reduce your taxes - they already proved as much. Neither will they reduce deficits nor slim down government - rarther the exact opposite: They've spent _your_ tax dollars on giving it away to corporations who already pay little or zero taxes - then rack up trillions in new debt to actually run the government; debt that _you_ have to pay through _even more_ taxes. What they _will_ *continue* to do for you, is ensuring that you get _less than nothing_ in return on those tax dollars invested. You'll have to pay _more,_ and get absolutely f**k all in return, while the duties of government go unfulfilled, communities, schools, industry, infrastructure continue to crumble around you. In the last 4 years they _doubled_ the national debt, hit deficits exceeding GDP - and all you got for it was a $600 check, a swab up your nose, and 518.000 of your fellow Americans dead. If you're lucky. Some of those eligble still have not gotten that $600 check that was granted _a year_ ago - not by error, they're just that incapable of doing the job of sending out checks through a fully automated system. Their wine cellars and walk-in fridges keep being restocked with your tax dollars, their private chefs keep getting paid - so they do not care and are incapable of understanding why you and your family might need a tiny bit of your own tax dollars, to help you avoid losing your home and not literally starve to death. Or manage the downpayment on the minivan so it doesn't get repo'ed, that you and your children are living in now because you _already_ lost your home while they stalled. For the only purpose of _not_ helping you. Remember this abuse, this corruption and greed, this carelessness, how your life is barely worth a +1 on a graph to them - the next time they're spinning up another new fairytale to scare you into giving them your vote. Remember that the biggest, _extremely genuine_ threat to you, your family, to your own and your children's ability to get a fair chance at a good future and life - _is them._
