Congress nearing deal on $900B COVID-19 relief package

The US Congress appeared poised to vote on a $900B COVID-19 aid package on Sunday after senators struck a late-night compromise on key areas of contention. Congressional leaders plan to attach the aid package to a $1.4T spending bill funding government programs through to Sep. 2021. The package includes $600 direct payments to individuals and a $300 a week unemployment compensation supplement.

Thank goodness the government is bailing us out from the financial harship THEY caused. Making us more dependent on them. People are literally fighting for the right to go to work.

I guess Delta and Boeing needed another bail out to prevent bankruptcy again. Oh I guess they attached 600 bucks for everyone on the side of it.

Let people go to work and we won't need any of this.

Pelosi won't allow this to move ahead until Biden is actually sworn in. At this point, I'd rather have them keep the money in exchange for their heads being put on pikes in front of the capital.

Yay mega corporations getting more money meanwhile small businesses and common citizens are still getting screwed over with a “hey here’s $600 now keep fighting on you trooper!” Seriously the feds are still doing nothing why do they still get $100k a year in most circumstances?

Get 50 more of these done between now and the new year and we might have actually accomplished something worthwhile!

So Republicans have absolutely no problem giving Wallstreet another 430 Billion but fought tooth and nail to keep ANYONE from getting direct payments of any kind. But "party of the people" right?

If they would have bailed out the people in the first place instead of giving 4 trillion to corporations that we just gave tax breaks to, we wouldn't need another bill.

Nothing in it about raising the minimum wage? People might be more willing to risk their lives more if there were more incentive to do so. From what I can see the only people screaming to get back to work are those making good money ($50k+/yr). Most essential and many front line workers don't make enough by themselves to pay the rent.

Oh good. $600 to cover bills for the last 6 months. Glad millionaires have a realistic view of accumulation of bills for the average family.

Why wouldn’t they give a useful amount of money to American citizens? $1,800 for an entire year of idiotic lockdowns? That isn’t going to help people get back on their feet!
