Lindsey Graham calls for stand-alone vote on $2,000 stimulus checks

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) Thursday called for a stand-alone vote in the Senate on a House-passed bill for $2,000 coronavirus relief payments. By stating that, Graham broke with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s opposition to an increase of the $600 relief payments to $2,000. Graham said that while 70% of Republicans don’t want to see the increase, he ’is with the president on this’.

Mitch, Schumer, Pelosi, Graham, Schiff, Feinstein, Waters are perfect examples on why all of Congress senate and the Supreme court need term limits.

Here's the thing. Trump is right on this. His motive is OBVIOUSLY not the well being of Americans because he could have called for a standalone vote from Mitch on this for 7 months but conveniently only seems interested around the Nov election and now the run off. LG is a bootlicker and will follow the lead of the cult leader even if it's off a cliff. Mitch is just pure evil. I don't even see the political advantage when the polling shows huge support from the public for this as well as support from Repulicans in the House and the two Senators in the run off.

As it pertains to the $2000.00 stimulus Chuck Schumer gave away whatever leverage he had with the defense bill leaving Bernie Sanders out to dry. You, Harris, and 45 other Democrats voted with Mitch McConnell thinking he plays fair. He is a political tactician. When are you going to learn or are you on the same side with him. We all want to know Chuck.
