$2.2 trillion stimulus bill approved by US Congress

A mammoth $2.2 trillion coronavirus stimulus bill has been approved by the US House. The bill was passed earlier this week by the Senate and hence the long awaited relief package has been sent to the President for his signature.

Are we going to be able to sign the stimulus bill or are you going to send it back with all these ridiculous demands like last time so that when we refuse it you can turn it around and say it's our fault?

Good. We will spend a long time paying for this and inflation along with a rebound in demand will cause prices to go up for a while but this was necessary to help businesses make pay roll (so you know people can get paid) and help them pay rent and keep their doors open to try and minimize the large uptick in unemployment that is inevitable as a result of the Coronavirus crisis. I am not happy about all the pork that was slapped onto this bill but it is far better to have a fat bill than no bill.

This is what is happening with the money, it's like this: You (the working class and small business) and I (the corporate elite) are out begging for money and someone (taxpayers) gives us $5.00. You get $0.75 and I get the rest. Because I'm elite, I'm allowed to take my $4.25 into the bank and use it to secure a loan of 10x which is $42.50 but You are Not allowed to do the same. I'm allowed to put that loan money in My pocket and spend it on anything I want but YOU are required to make the payments on "OUR" loan because You received 75¢ of the original $5.00 that WE were given. This is part of the "DEAL" we were just "given" by our government! That's what our leaders were forced to settle on because we, the people, are panicked and in dire need and the corporate elite see an opportunity to exploit us AGAIN! This is why I keep saying "LET THE CORPORATIONS FEND FOR THEMSELVES!" Everyone says "BUT THE JOBS, ALL THE JOBS!!!" PEOPLE... Relax! Those corporations are Not going to fail. They have PLENTY of money. THEY DON'T NEED ANY MORE MONEY! They can shut down, send everyone home, all employees get their UBI's so the corporation doesn't have to pay out, the corp is out nothing but pure executive profit and I'm sure they can live off the $10 million they made last year. Why the f*ck should we give them anything when they've been exploiting us for fifty years?! FU*K THE CORPORATIONS, THEY'LL BE FINE! Any that do go under will certainly be replaced by many small businesses much like saplings after a forest fire. Small businesses have always been the backbone of the US and world economy.

Better save those government checks people cause the money they give you you are going to have to pay back. So look at it as a loan instead of free money.

Libertarians, if I'm allowed to paint with a broad brush, generally hate government waste. Yet, this guy Is costing hundreds of thousands of dollars forcing members of the house to convene. Not to mention they have to then re sanitize and clean all the places that they had already cleaned because they were expecting the house to remain closed. I think he should recieve the bill, instead of the taxpayers. What a joke!

Why do you keep showing the obstructionist traitor Pelosi on the phphotos when it was the Republicans and Trump that got the deal done. Newsvoice has really turned into the same left wing garbage as the rest of mainstream media.
