So as of now in the United States, more than 69,000 people have been sickened and more than 1,000 have died from the Covid-19 outbreak or as our President calls it “the invisible enemy.” That’s one way of saying it without having to repeat the name, and right now the name is like our world’s boogeyman. It’s got everyone locked indoors praying they’re not next to catch it. The entire world is held captive not being able to work, our do the daily things which we are so used to doing. So now after days of negotiations, the U.S. Senate and Congress got their collective assholes together, and decided to stop dicking around with us the people who employs them, and they passed the Stimulus bill.
The massive bill includes a $500 billion fund to help hard-hit industries and a comparable amount for direct payments of up to $3,000 apiece to millions of U.S. families. It is intended to flood the economy with cash in a bid to stem the impact of a pandemic that has killed more than 900 people in the United States and infected at least 60,000.
“This bill pays you more not to work than if you were working,” Republican Senator Lindsey Graham, a close Trump ally, told a news conference. Several Republican senators said the bill needed to be changed to ensure that laid-off workers would not be paid more than they earned on the job. Now I don’t know who can live on $600 bucks every two weeks or even $1,500 a month these days when the rent alone to most places are over 1G a month. So where he gets that is unheard off but these folks are rich beyond our imagination, and they’re ALL a little bit out of touch with the real world.
“Why would the senators hold up this really important bill … because they resent people at the low end of the spectrum who have lost their jobs, from getting $600?” House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi asked on CNN, and while on the surface it sounds like she’s out to help the everyday people part of the problem is they the congress we’re trying to get things put into the overall package which are directly from the proposed “Green New Deal” in other words both sides we’re playing an awful game with us the common folks who need the help. This tug of war which only hurts us should not have happened, and I’m happy it’s finally done with.
While Independent Senator and self described Communist Bernie Sanders, who is running for the Democratic presidential nomination, said he was prepared to block the bill if Republicans did not drop their objections. The disputes clouded optimism that the bill could become law quickly… Remember folks just weeks ago who was endorsing old man Bernie? The head of the Green New Deal herself AOC! This moron endorsed the guy who wants now more than ever before this Green New Deal.
Administration officials said Trump would definitely sign it into law if it passed both the Republican-led Senate and Democratic-majority House.
“Today the Senate will act to help the people of this country weather this storm,” Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said. The legislation will also provide $350 billion for small-business loans, $250 billion for expanded unemployment aid and at least $100 billion for hospitals and related health systems. The rescue package would be the largest ever approved by Congress, and follows two others that became law earlier this month. The money at stake amounts to nearly half of the $4.7 trillion the U.S. government spends annually. Investors were cheered by the news or the deal. On Wall Street, the benchmark S&P 500 <.SPX> rallied for a second straight day, closing up 1.15%.
Some high-profile opposition to the bill came from Schumer’s home state. New York Governor Andrew Cuomo said the $3.8 billion allocated to his state would not cover the tax revenue it stands to lose from reduced economic activity. New York accounts for roughly half of all U.S. coronavirus cases. The thing is also Mr Cuomo the impact is hard cause Money is not coming in at record numbers but also the spending should be a lot less since the overhead cost of keeping everything open was shut down for a while… So when things get moving again it will level out pretty fast. Also New York is a very rich area, and most of the state of NY is strong remember 911? Now I will say NY Gov. Andrew Cuomo has been outstanding in how he’s handled NY during this outbreak, and it’s good to see him, and the GOV. of California Gavin Newsom both have nothing but good things to say about how Trump has been during this thing, and we the people need to keep in mind these guys we’re as about Anti Trump as you will find PRE-COVID19.
Remember this come election time folks when the shit hit the fan our President was right from day 1… He closed flights from China and was called a “Xenophobe” & “Racist” what that did was save thousands of lives, and it helped slow down the spread of what he saw coming hard into the country. Based on his moves the rest of the country, and world has acted… Trump is the President we need right now, and for the next 4 years. He’s a strong leader, and when I see him speak he really sounds like he’s humbled by what’s happening, and he’s suffering with the rest of us. He is a true patriot and forget it folks I might be of neither Republicans or Democrats but Trump has my vote 100% for re-election.
Here is what Ben Shapiro has to say about the bill which passed…
Democrats Just Obstructed The Emergency Relief AGAIN??! Pelosi Says She Hasn’t Decided on it Yet. After holding up the emergency relief bill twice Democrats and Republicans in the Senate finally agreed on a bill that both sides were happy with.
The deal gives 4 months of guaranteed wages to furloughed workers and gives most Americans a check for $1,200.
Everything seemed to be going well until Nancy Pelosi stepped in.
Instead of voting on the bill she held a “pro forma” session in the House. They were in for about one minute before leaving.
Pelosi says she isn’t sure how she will handle the bill but one thing is for certain, Republicans negotiated with Democrats once again and they agreed so why are the Democrats in the House now holding things up?
America is hurting, our economy is tanking, businesses are closing and now Pelosi wants to “review” the bill that the Democrats themselves have negotiated?? Maybe this is a stall tactic meant to hurt America more?
Maybe Democrats think they can hurt Trump’s reelection chances in november by damaging the economy. I don’t know
All I know is that if both sides, Chuck Schumer and Mitch McConnell, agreed there should be no reason that the Democrats are trying to obstruct yet again.
