Every time I read anything anywhere about the news it is always the same. Republicans only care about big business. Democrats only care about their special interests.
The truth is neither care about you. Look at the Coronavirus bills. Republicans fighting to get money to business’s. Democrats fighting to get money to Planned Parenthood and the Kennedy Center. Two trillion dollars and what did the people get? Maybe $1,200.
Two Trillion if you divide it by 350 Million is $5,700. Every individual in the country could have been paid $5,700. Every man, woman, and child. But no. We needed the Kennedy Center to get some cash right?
Even now both sides are using the emergency to push their agenda. Illinois has Mayors trying to shut down gun stores. Texas is banning Abortion. Neither of which has a damned thing to do with the Virus.
Neither of them gives a flying fuck about you. If you vote Republican you are a dumb ass racist. If you vote Democrat you are a dumb assed socialist.
If you needed more proof that they do not care about you than the Coronavirus response should prove it to you. If you still do not see it pull your head out of the sand already.

other than the abortion thing I agree with you,,
abortion was part of the ban on elective surgeries because its about medical resources,

a point so many dont understand is that both parties are on the left in this country meaning they are big government with more centralized power not limited with the states in control as the constitution says,,,

I can understand your anger, but you left out the $500 per child that would greatly inflate the numbers.

And it is probably worse than that. Only 200 million will get checks. It could be upwards of $10,000 with individuals getting $1,200.

This was a massive treasury raid.

Government is the problem not the solution. This government is way too powerful. We need to kill FedZila and take power away from these elitists pirates.

What gets me are those that post it's only getting our own money back. Heck that money was long gone ages ago. This dough is coming from the ever increasing dependency on cash advances on the nation's credit card.

At least with the Republican bill, you can relate to the virus or those affected by it. But new CAFE standards on jetliners, and tax credits for wind and solar energy is something nobody can explain. Yes, money helps people, but money could also keep businesses open when this is all over.

It is rather whom and what the government is serving that is the problem. Government itself is neutral. Those currently in office are betraying the people.

They've both decayed into party & ideology-over-country mode at this point.

Give either the opportunity, and they'll immediately proceed to cram their entire agenda down our throats.

Pretty repulsive.

To make matters worse as of two days ago it was announced that the Kennedy Center will stop paying it's musicians. 25 mil well spent. Thanks Nancy.

And that business is going to hire homeless people to work there? Perhaps they will accept an address of under the Third Street Bridge on the application. Many people live paycheck to paycheck. Many have little or no savings. How are those businesses you are talking about going to keep a roof over the heads of their employees?

Sure. Those businesses need to open when this is all over. But if we have a couple million more homeless the business will close anyway because they won’t have customers.

My Father asked me a question once. Would you rather be crushed by a ton of feathers or a ton of lead. It doesn’t matter what the ton is made up of. The important part is the ton crushing you. That is the Republican and Democrat situation. It is being crushed by the ton instead of what the ton is made up of.

They certainly won't have any customers if nobody has a place to go back to work. Companies will still have to layoff people, still have to cut down, but with a little luck and some help from the government, they will at least still be open when this thing starts to diminish.

to a point youre right,,,except this money comes from money they have to borrow not from money they took previously,,,
And once we get out of this, that money should be paid back. I say a federal consumption tax would help do the trick.

I said fro. The beginning the idea to give people $$$ is smart in this situation. We could have given every adult 2500 and cut the pork and it'd be alot less than 2 trillion. This is time to help people, not pet projects. I wonder how much of it will end up in big corporate CEO hands vs the workers who actually do the work.
