  1. He says " survive this" like he knows how long it will last… get ready for more stimulus after this first one.

  2. Rent $2,000
    Utilities $200
    Food $400
    Car payment $200
    Car insurance $120
    Cell $100
    WiFi $100
    Health insurance $150
    Student loans $200
    Total $3,420 a month
    And you need to give people extra money if you wanna stimulate the economy with consumer spending 5,000 for Evey adult American ! They got trillions for Wall Street, trillions for banks, trillions for war! But pennys for us!?

  3. What about all my brothers you fire after they got sick yall made sure to fire them at 3month mark why so they cant collect unemployment die heathen hurry up n die

  4. Great. They finally came to an agreement. I'm still trying to find answers as to what the criteria is for getting that check. I made 24,000.00 last year. I filed taxes for 2019. However, in 2018 I had just moved to New Mexico from Oklahoma, where I had been caring for my Mom until she passed away. I had been getting paid by her home care company to be her caregiver, so I did file a 2017 return. However, in 2018 I only made 11,000.00…not enough to be required to file…and would have been penalized for no health insurance. Sooo… sigh! I've seen a few folks posting that only those who filed a 2018 return will be eligible. Does anyone know if that's accurate?

  5. n 2008 we witnessed saving Wall St over Main St. Now we are witnessing saving Wall St over American lives. Greed is a bigger pandemic than Covid-19 in United States of America and wherever Capitalism is ruling. Even $100 trillion "Relief to Corporations" will be failing due to greed of Wall St. How many times we have to employ this failed strategy?

    This so called relief bill is only serving Billionaires, whereas common American is only receiving couple of bucks. It is the common American who will be paying back through cruel taxation for generation to come.

    In Capitalism, only capitalist has right to live. The solution is not to save capital (or so called wealth) but to save people. Capitalism is doomed to fail, just like Communism or Socialism and many other man made systems have failed in recent times.

    What is the Solution? Stop dealing in Interest. The solution is given in God's holy book Quran, Bible, Torah and Zabur. In Quran, God has declared Interest based economy (Capitalism or its offsprings) as enemy of Almighty God and His messenger. How this can survive?

    The only way to survive is to stop all Interest accrual and nullify all accrued Interest immediately. The lender can collect their Principal, but absolutely no Interest. All funding for businesses should be on Partnership basis (sharing in Profit and Loss as well) instead of guaranteed profits for lender and no share in losses. All loans for basic human needs should be Interest free or even forgiven if borrower is unable to pay.

  6. What about those receiving Social Security that only takes care of 1 cars insurance not two, rent along with utility bills while working as self employed making nothing under the table. They need help.
    And what about the many who can't afford to get married, but live with their partner who works Full-time but that partner chooses to protect themselves and their loved one with underlined health issues from getting COVID-19 by staying home from work now only have barely any money to cover essential expenses. Having to take of work and by doing so that partner and other employees at their company have been denied any relief, or vacation pay because they are ( blue collar workers and not their white collar higher ups who will get paid leave),now only thing they have is a SS check which means now no food on the table choosing which car will have insurance paid, choosing which utilities will and can't be paid over others because they can't without the fulltime workers company refusing to help them and others with any financial help stay afloat now in lower middle class. Even after the company dragged their feet for a whole week, a whole week before telling them and other employees that their and their loved ones health is at risk as someone tested positive for COVID-19 at their place of work and that an employee can be easily replaced if they died from it after coming into contact with the infected person.
    The company now still stays open after workers are testing positive and the White Collars receive paid leave, but not their backbone Blue Collar workers.
    No Accountability and the CEO have a written up letter while lawyering up to keep their business open after people tested positive in their facility company here in Michigan. My Fiance and I can't afford to get married without lossing my necessary benifits to stay afloat, now he is receiving no help from his business while his higher up White Collars will simply because he is a Blue Collar worker. Now we must choose insurance over food, rent over utilities for the next month because his work won't help employees who have to stay home to protect loved ones with underlying health conditions. The buisness he works at lies and twists their words to stay open when everyone there knows they are none essential and putting workers and their loved ones at risk.

  7. I don’t know about this. I never feel any honesty. There’s never any sincerity in their voices. They read a script, motivated by arrogance and selfishness. I’ve never been more ashamed of our leaders.

  8. The virus is doubling every 3 days but checks issued in 6 weeks. Most people are going to succumb to virus including bank employees, so at the end of April beginning of May we can knit checks into masks

  9. The best news for America would be that you and the rest of the worthless dinosaurs rotting in the halls of Congress are leaving the planet.

  10. It would be nice if states, cities and counties could temporarily do away with sales tax. It may not seem like much but it adds up over time.

  11. I wonder πŸ€”what as humans ?, what we have to sacrifice to get this moneyβœŒπŸ˜·πŸ€·β€β™€οΈπŸ‘©β€πŸ‘¦β€πŸ‘¦

  12. Forget about the homeless let's just keep them in the streets! Is that what he is saying is that the best American congress can do?

  13. ….unemployment compensation on….steroids…………….. im really unsure which is truly my enemy…. CoViD-19 or these political a$$hats who focus more on their disgusting poetical rehearsal of information and seem to enjoy the sound of their own voices!?!? Im not trapping myself indoors from a viral outbreak, im doing it because im alergic to stupid people and america seems to be doing a good job of proving it's the epicenter of STUPIDITY and IDIOCRACY!!! πŸ™

  14. https://www.congress.gov/116/bills/hr6379/BILLS-116hr6379ih.pdf heres a link to the bill .pdf, here is another link to the senate website where I found it https://www.congress.gov/bill/116th-congress/senate-bill/3548

  15. I knew the repubs would change their tell(lie)Β  and keep low income SSΒ  (below 25K) by putting restrictions requiring tax filing rules to qualify. George bush sent checks to ALL SS people.Β  We already knew how sorry munchin and orange rat are. whats so afwul is chucky used the old "worship the workers"Β  line.Β  I fault Nancy for going along with this BS. lets get AOC as a true progressive leader.

  16. So nothing for me. On SSDI, unable to drive in winter – no heat in car, bald tires, I waited to get back to work in hotel industry part-time… now I have to put off work because I am high risk, at 47 years old in Italy I would be a 6 … 5 or less they help you . Now no one over 60…. I would be left to die. Finances are bad for me. And I fall through the cracks on this aid… I am fk’ed.

  17. How nice of US Americans to give the "leadership" of this nation a much deserved bonus on top of their ridiculously over paid salaries. Thank you my fellow Americans for your endless amount of FEAR, without your compliance these crimes would never come into fruition. Now stay inside and enjoy your well earned mass amounts of debt………….

  18. So sick of the greasy slimy Democrats throwing a wrench into everything for the good of the American people. But no, Peloci and her boy Schumer have to load a bill with tripe with nothing to do for help for the people. How can a nation not be divided when we have subversives like this. Peloci & Schumer are a stain on this nation that needs to be removed

  19. But Not Good For People Who Are Single Self Employed Handicapped and Do Not Pay Taxes.I Have No Medical, Get No Food Stamps. Self Paid My Broken Arm. Boy That Was Rough! Can Barely Afford Rent&Food.Don't Drive Can't Afford It.

  20. These are some challenging times we are facing. If anyone is in a situation where you are considering selling your house for fast cash to pay bills or move or downsize let me know. I work with a firm and we’re still making as-is cash offers for homes in FLORIDA AND GEORGIA regardless of condition.
    We will pay you a reasonable price and close as soon as you need us to even as fast as 15 days.

  21. If there is a God in heaven please let coronavirus contract Nazi Pelosi schmuck Schumer and the rest of the corrupt Democrat a-holes

  22. America just gave 2 trillion dollars to the people that gave us TAX REFORM FOR THE RICH.They gave us the bank failure of 2007. Failed trade wars and phony peace deals.They took our healthcare..Trump dismantled or cut funding for offices that would have addressed this, WHY? These are not loans as they will be forgiven. Why call them loans? We get a $1000 to do what, go to dinner? Most goes to big businesses, were they laying off workers? NO. The wall, Trump hotels, Boeing, cruise ship lines 80% registered in other countries.. Anyone feel played?

  23. Why aren't more senators present? This is the most urgent of all cases in the history of the USA and the world.

  24. "Democrats have succeeded in making the bill better" Wow Shoomer is such a slimeball for trying to get politic points and credit at a time like this. The left really is slimey.

  25. πŸ€•πŸ€•πŸ€’πŸ€’πŸ˜°πŸ˜°πŸ˜©πŸ˜©McConnell is quick to bail out wealthy corporations and special interest at tax payers expense,Americans have witnessed this in the past. Well! Mitch McConnell! Americans!! Want! Their ! Bail Out! And they Want! It! Now!😀😀😀😑😑😑

  26. This is them putting a bandage on a bullet hole, and expecting us to praise them for all the "hard work" they did

  27. The problem with people today is that they are never happy with what they get and always want more. If you lived 100 years ago this would all be on you. Be thankful that you will have medical care if you get Covid 19 and you are getting enough money that you won't starve. A little prayer never hurts either.

  28. Here is my question. We know that this virus is very contagious. Why are any of these elected leaders wearing at least gloves on their hands in case they to have the virus or has come in contact with it? This is very concerning to me.

  29. PEOPLE, GOVERNMENT ONLY CARE ABOUT THEMSELVES, THEIR JOB IS TO LIE AND CONVINCE US THAT THEY ARE WORKING HARD TO SERVE US THE BEST POSSIBLE WAY.

  30. It took way too long because of the democrats, but I'm glad that they didn't immediately cave to McConnell's original package that was loaded for corporations and with Donald Trump as the overseer of funds.

  31. It would be great if this tool gets the Corona virus. It's because of lap dogs like him that the Rich gets richer and the poor keep getting poorer.

  32. OMG! Did Moscow Mitch actually do something good for non-wealthy people and big corporations at last? Now that's my new, strange reality!!!!

  33. Large companies ( over 500 employees) get government loans not bailouts, think of it as an FHA loan.
    (Smaller than 500 employees) it can be a grant if the company hires back all their previous employees if not it is a loan.
    You should read before you speak.

  34. Where has he been. It was the president and the republicians, not you Schumer or Dems. Pelosi didnt want any money to Americans

  35. Also I do not believe you should make more money on unemployment than when you work (ie. Pelosi plan) Just the way I was raised I guess…

  43. People need to keep in mind not everyone will get this stimulus payment. There are stipulations in place that will prevent some people from getting anything. Don't count on that $$ until it's in your hand! They need to come out and tell us WHO will be eligible to receive this money. On one hand, they want people to get back to work but on the other hand, they are telling people to social distance and shelter in place! Which is it?? Seems they all are just as confused as everyone else and this thing is supposed to get worse in the weeks to come before it gets better! The biggest question for everyone is: WHEN are these payments supposed to be released???? I feel they should have stopped ALL international flights as soon as they learned about this virus. We basically invited that virus into the USA when we allowed people to continue to fly in here. Stupid is as stupid does!! jmho
