Correction: Democrats are still holding the American people hostage until they can stuff the bill with completely un-neccessary items and then blame Trump for it.

This is getting to be like groundhog day. Same news day after day. No change in the virus news. No change in resolving political BS. Meanwhile people can't work and the bills still need to be paid. What a mess.

The bill was unialaterally approved in the Senate 96-0. The house didn't even vote on it............... Screw party lines! It honestly seems like the Senate realizes what's at stake, while the house of Reps seems to think now is the time to play Partisan Politics I'm especially looking at Pelosi, there seemed to be next no problems until she came back from the vacation she took while everyone else was working on saving the country!

I hope the stimulus package doesn't pass. I know it sounds as though I lack compassion, but I don't want the dollar to collapse.

Just a reminder: Government doesn't have money to give away or lend. What it does is appropriate future wealth and controls how it is used by force. The vehicle is called "fiat currency." Fiat currency is not money. It is control. The U.S. government is issuing 2 trillion units of control over future economic liberty and prosperity.
