    LOL. Moscow Mitch complaining about lack of cooperation while actively blocking every bill in the Senate. That toad is as corrupt as they come.

    The Democrat Socialist party members are putting crap in the bill that has nothing to do with the crisis.

    Am I the only one that thinks two party system is bad!??

  • Posted on Mar 23, 2020 at 15:32 pm

    You heard it folks. Democrats don't want a stimulus package. Anything that happens at this point on is on them for not acting. Remember that.

  • Posted on Mar 23, 2020 at 15:33 pm

    The Irony is these people get paid from the taxes we pay, and yet they act as if the money in the government is theirs.

    Can't the coronavirus put an end to mitch McConnell

  • Posted on Mar 23, 2020 at 15:33 pm

    The Republicans having a hissy fit. You tried to ex out protections for workers in favor of giving tax breaks to corporations, like, what the hell is this

  • Posted on Mar 23, 2020 at 15:34 pm

    Mitch McConnell need to catch the virus. I bet he wont survive a week.

  • Posted on Mar 23, 2020 at 15:34 pm

    They had executive privilege and did what they choose to! Exactly who is playing games. Listen to Cuomo. Like Democrats, he has the answers to co-operative intelligence and effective, just in time governance.

    It's getting close to pitchforks', torches and rope time.

  • Posted on Mar 23, 2020 at 15:34 pm

    Democrats are failing pretty bad. Yes there's a large corp. bailouts BUT at LEAST there was something in the bill to help everyone. WHY WAIT

  • Posted on Mar 23, 2020 at 15:35 pm

    anyone have extra toilet paper?

  • Posted on Mar 23, 2020 at 15:35 pm

    I wish all the Politicians especially on the left would Die of AIDS.

  • Posted on Mar 23, 2020 at 15:36 pm

    When I see the monster with the glasses on his nose blocking help for the American people because he's scared Trump will get credit if it helps. Can America survive.

  • Posted on Mar 23, 2020 at 15:38 pm

    LOANS in a time of crisis, is PROFITEERING at its finest

  • Posted on Mar 23, 2020 at 15:38 pm

    He is so right! The dead cannot build wall street, even if dollars by the millions are printed.

  • Posted on Mar 23, 2020 at 15:40 pm

    This is enough. You lock πŸ” these clowns in there, freeze their assets, no one comes out until they pass a bill or resign or die. This is what you were elected to do and you act like this. Have a taste of what Americans are going through.

  • Posted on Mar 23, 2020 at 15:40 pm

    Schumer was crying about the travel band 2years ago. He is not crying for the American people now. God help us if these Marxists monsters win.

  • Posted on Mar 23, 2020 at 15:40 pm

    I say suspend all of the salaries of Congress. You aren't democrats. Or Republicans. You are Americans. Start acting like it. Partisanship and lobbying are a plauge.

  • Posted on Mar 23, 2020 at 15:41 pm

    hospitals have enough money. They have no problem sending families into bankruptcy.

  • Posted on Mar 23, 2020 at 15:41 pm

    Mitch is such a sleazeball.

  • Posted on Mar 23, 2020 at 15:44 pm

    It's still all about wall Street for the majority of the Republican party. They would rather be for r failing economy because of this virus. They would rather help Wall Street and relief for Corporations and help money for them. Not the American people and equipment for help for the hospital relief and and sick and broke poor American people. I already knew 2 weeks ago after the stock market plunged that Trump would freak out because of his chances of not getting re-elected. Now trump and the Republican party r trying to do half assed help so they can say r trying and the Democrats ain't because they don't like the stupid proposal Trump's and McConnell are trying to sail to Democrats and sick American people.

  • Posted on Mar 23, 2020 at 15:44 pm

    NO BAILOUTS for large corporations.

  • Posted on Mar 23, 2020 at 15:44 pm

    πŸ€ Chuck and the πŸ€ party

  • Posted on Mar 23, 2020 at 15:45 pm

    2 days and they cant come up with a bill that both party can agree on…? So stupid

  • Posted on Mar 23, 2020 at 15:45 pm

    You know what? McConnell/GOP & Schumer/DNC are both FAILING the American people. JUST SEND US OUT THE GODDAM CHECKS ALREADY. Sanders is rt: $2k/adult/mo until this ends. Bills are due on the 1st and the people paying your salaries & your Healthcare DEMAND you help us FOR ONCE in your careers.

    Rt now, you're all being financially irresponsible, selfish, corporate sell-outs, safe in your bubble of red tape & bribe $. That can/will end rly fast. Do it now! or the ensuing economic destruction will be on your hands.

  • Posted on Mar 23, 2020 at 15:46 pm

    Yea let's continue to give more money to the richest people in this country and ignore the needs of people who actually need it. These billionaires could go years without another check and be fine. The corporate greed is disgusting. Who is surprised though the Republicans put there own selfish needs before the rest of the country.

  • Posted on Mar 23, 2020 at 15:46 pm

    Gotta love Susuan Collins speech. Look you guys said you wanted to give bail out to those who have already money and not those who don't like those who are disabled and terminally ill, common people who work for a living because they want their children's to have a better life than they have in the past. Yet we look at race when all of us should look at us as Americans because this great nation and at one point our families were immigrants. There is no one pure race. Majority of us are Americans, whatever color we may be, whatever birth Countries they might come from and love this Nation so much that they did took their citizenship. Our leadership sadly is broken. We need to come together especially during this time of Crisis. What happened when 911 happened everyone even New Yorkers got together and worked together. We're in one if the biggest pandemic and rather fighting, our leaders we voted in should represent us. They are in office because of us and rather them getting majority of support by crooked lobbyists. It is time for all of us to come together and make a reasonable and fair economic deal before our once great nation becomes something that our founding fathers did not fight for.

    he can’t even form a sentence without murmuring

  • Posted on Mar 23, 2020 at 15:46 pm

    Gee. I hope they all don't get seriously ill with this before they can make a DECISION!

  • Posted on Mar 23, 2020 at 15:47 pm

    Didn't McConnell pick up and leave for the weekend… IN A CRISIS!?!?!?

    Oh, and STFU Susan Collins. πŸ–•

  • Posted on Mar 23, 2020 at 15:47 pm

    Chuck Schumer New how the vote would go in the impeachment trial. But he went forward with it anyway. Lol

    Another day in Paradise——Phil Collins

  • Posted on Mar 23, 2020 at 15:48 pm

    Shumer is a terrible person.

  • Posted on Mar 23, 2020 at 15:48 pm

    Nothing short of the permanent elimination of the payroll tax, thus destroying Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, and Disability will get the Republicans to do what is needed for the people of America. Americans think that can't happen. It has happened in other countries already. That's the deal. Total destruction of the country by Covid-19 or total elimination of the payroll tax. Larry Kudlow (appearing impaired) admitted if they eliminate the payroll tax they cannot "backfill" the lost funding for Social Security et al.

  • Posted on Mar 23, 2020 at 15:49 pm

    Mitch Mcconnell, the true virus infecting our country.

  • Posted on Mar 23, 2020 at 15:51 pm

    Hopefully, even the Republicans can see trickle down economics are a scam. When did it work? Lines at the food bank and other charities prove the satistics of a better economy is a LIE!

  • Posted on Mar 23, 2020 at 15:51 pm

    Your all f-ed in the head and I pray shumer and Pelosi get it and have a slow torturous death.

  • Posted on Mar 23, 2020 at 15:52 pm

    They want riots???

  • Posted on Mar 23, 2020 at 15:54 pm

    The reason it's taking so long is because they're trying to devise the perfect plan to keep that money from being given to Black Americans. This may take a while.
