Sanders agrees with push for $2K payments but criticizes Trump for delay on bill

Nancy Pelosi said she would force a vote on increasing payments to Americans in a coronavirus relief bill from $600 to $2,000. Senator Bernie Sanders criticized President Trump after the latter refused to sign the relief bill, as he demanded lawmakers to increase payments from $600 to $2,000. Sanders said Trump should not hold up the current bill, though he agrees payments should be higher.

Funny how this is "tRuMp'S fAuLt" - somehow - but not Congress's fault for originally only giving Americans $600. Sanders is just as much to blame for that $600 "relief" as Pelosi, Schiff, TurtleMan McConnel, etc.

Establishment of both parties filled both bills with mostly pork. This is highly corrupt just like the first "relief" laws.

Ok, Bernie. Pull out all the pork on Monday, if it's so easy. Drop a clean bill for $600 each and Trump will sign it. Stop sending our relief TAX DOLLARS overseas, you old goat.

"But you can’t diddle around with the bill," Sanders said. "Sign the bill, Mr. President, and then immediately, Monday, Tuesday, we can pass a $2,000 direct payment to the working families of this country." [Expand] So what Sanders is saying is that even though they didn't get it right the first time, Trump should just sign this and then let congress spend another four months making another horrible piece of legislation. It's like a woodchipper with the exit chute pointed back at the operator, why would I do that twice?

No criticism for massive pork or military spending? $2.3 trillion of mostly pork. Congress's 5,593-page porky 'relief' bill is essence of the swamp https://thehill.com/opinion/finance/531294-congresss-pork-filled-covid-relief-bill

Absolutely fair call. Even republicans are saying the same thing. I truly hope trump starts his own party at this point. Just to ensure the Dems stay in power for the next decade.

If it wasn’t for idiots who do not understand democratic socialism we wouldn’t be dealing with the mess we are in now.

Why all this money overseas in the first place? Why 25 million for gender programs in Pakistan? Is that really their biggest need for our money?

Let me get this straight; Pelosi and Mitch along with their clown brigades all agree on a 5000+ page bill with only $600 for Americans, Trump refuses to sign it claiming its too little with too many attachments, they are then forced to increase the amount to $900 (which they would never have done without being pressured), and then say Trump is working against the extra money when he asked for $2000 in a clean bill? Does that just about sum it up? The only politician I trust right now is Tulsi Gabbard who refused to sign this garbage noone had time to even review.

Trump? He has no say in McConnells deep rooted desire to make sure that Pakistanis get their gender studies and the average American citizen doesn't even get as much as illegal aliens will be getting from this bill.
