Why should we spend even $500 billion more of borrowed money?

Because democrat mayors and governors FORCE citizens to sit at home instead of working
Or we could just go for herd immunity, and close our eyes as more americans die from COVID-19 than from all the wars in American history combined.

Not if they try herd immunity. That's where the estimated death toll goes from hundreds of thousands, and into the millions.

Opposing Authoritarian Ideological Fundamentalism.
It's been 192 days since the House passed the $3 trillion HEROES Act, and 56 days since the House passed their compromise $2.2 trillion bill, both of which Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has refused to take up. McConnell sent his Republican Senate on Thanksgiving vacation last Thursday, after having spent the post-election week confirming unqualified Trump judges.

The one Trump administration official who at one point seemed to give a damn, Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, has reverted to Republican form. He's sabotaging the economy right alongside his boss, cutting off emergency lending programs administered by Treasury and the Federal Reserve and trying to claw back uncommitted funds. To be an even bigger dick, Mnuchin is going to put the $455 billion he's clawing back into the General Fund, requiring future Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen to get congressional authorization to use it.


Two months. The adults are on their way.
The ones who wear two diapers???
Who wears two diapers?
Sleepy....his face diaper and his Depends.....likely Horseyface Kerry does too.

You have been conned, by people you trust. That's on you.

And stack the corpses like cordwood?
You cant be serious
Texas has to import refrigerated trucks to use as temporary morgues.
The Office of ithe Medical Examiner said it is currently at 63 percent morgue capacity but has brought in 14 cold storage containers-- eight being held at the County facility and six more in reserve-- that would allow an additional 294 decedents by the end of next week "if necessary," Fields Moseley, a spokesperson for Maricopa County, told Fox News.

the key words are “63% morgue capacity” and “if necessary”

This would be a perfect time for round 2 of stimulus checks only double them from the last round.

The Senate didn't take the latest because the Dem House loaded it with pork. If it had been a stand alone Chinese virus relief bill it would have been viewed and signed by the Senate and sent to Trump for signature.
I doubt if they even bothered to read it. Otherwise, it would have been sent to a committee whom would haven rewritten it, approved in in committee and sent the revised version back to the house. No, that never happened. Instead, a big read NO was stamped on it by Moscow Mitch the second it hit his desk and it went to the bottom of the "NO" file. But the Administration seems to have gotten more than 1.3 trillion trimmed from the original House bill before Baby Donnie went on his tantrum routine. I'll say it again, Baby Donnie wasn't the worst single person in DC, that prize goes, hands down, to Moscow Mitch. Stop making excuses for Moscow Mitch being the REAL Dictator in Washington. Baby Donny should take lessons from him.
When are you going to stop making excuses for your constant lying?

So Republicans should agree to a bill that funds the Arts, nationally eliminates voter ID to vote, force all states to accept absentee ballots for 10 days after the election so Democrats have a new avenue to cheat, 225 billion to pay teachers to stay home and very little to spend on improving air quality in the schools, 417 billion to state and local Democrat areas that have overspent for many years with no oversight of the money, 120 billion for restaurants mostly focused on minority and female owned businesses? That's right, if you are a white guy who owns a restaurant, you might not get any money at all while your minority owned competitor gets help thus putting you out of business.
Over my dead body.

We can open the economy fully and warn people if the risks of being active in it. Then they get to choose. 25 percent of people staying home won't hurt businesses one bit. And if it does well too dang bad. Let people choose.

Give us a link to that one.
I cant find a link to $2 trillion

the highest I can find is $1 trillion

which makes me happy to have been wrong

we do not need to add $2 trillion to the national debt when all that is required is to open up the economy and end the lockdowns
As soon as biden gets in he has already said he is going to spend 2 trillion on global warming. Then put us back in the Paris agreement. Wonder how many billions that will cost us.

Give that 2 trillion to people as a stimulus rather than global warming. Win win all the way around.

McConnell isn’t going to be able to sell hismy way or the highway compromise much longer.
Skews SEZ???? PLEASE read articles from the commie website"thedailykos"!!!!! They need the traffic!

That is easily one of the sorriest excuse for a website. It blatantly censors and blocks anyone that dares to question the veracity of their claims ...but that is what commies do. There is nothing of value to be gained from that joke of a website....
