Counting on the government. Let's recap on the promises and results...

Help for common people: No.

There are other promises, same results as above.

Oh, and 10 days ago a friend was "diagnosed" with the virus.
Test results came in this morning; upper respiratory problem but no covid.
TEN days.
So... Is their policy: The less people there are, the less it will cost.?

Hospitals in New York City should be emptying out in 2 days. I'll wait...
It's morgues that need to be emptied out. NYC morgues are full.

The bill put the word covid-19 in the first sentence of every item and then it goes on to describe spending having absolutely nothing to do with the virus at all.
Additional amounts for Salaries and expenses for House Representatives.
money for Architects of the Capital
Library of Congress
SMITHSONIAN INSTITUTION
John F. Kennedy Center For The Performing Arts

I could go on and on and on. page after page of pork It is obscene.
You don't seem to grasp the fact that BILLS are a 3-pronged process. First, one legislative body, then the next legislative body, then the executive branch. If at ANY point, ONE of those arms of the government is dissatisfied with the contents of the BILL, it can be sent back. So if the president doesn't LIKE what he sees, HE ALONE CAN FIX IT.
Yesterday at the press conf Trump stated that HE approved funds for the Kennedy Center.....because he likes it....and because (and this is a quote) the Dems "wanted it", which is hilarious.
AND let me point out something else. The bills that are being generated NOW are about MORE than COVID. They are about the economy. We have TWO very large, very scary things happening right now. TWO. Both need to be addressed.

the third one is the worst one Much of the same crap is also being pushed by the Dems on the one in the Senate. It seems the Dems are now backing off on some of the pork on the bill being considered in the Senate. obviously the bill in the Senate has gone back and forth with reports about what is being attempted to push onto it being leaked out. Your linked bill from the House shows the kind of crap they are pushing.
AND again. Stop making claims without proof. All you have to do is POST A LINK. Stop wasting our time.

If we manufactured our own medical suppies we'd be in tip top shape, oh well. Guess we sold out on that one some time ago.
trump was supposed to bring back manufacturing with his dumbass tariffs

You're talking billions. The bill is $2.5 TRILLION dollars. That is 2,500 BILLION dollars. Wow, $1 whole billion for vaccines therapeutic and development but $500 BILLION to bail out corporate America ?? Tell me what the fuck is wrong with that math !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! To make matters worse, the GOP wanted NO STRINGS on that money !!!!!
where are the people who were demanding that Elizabeth Warren tell everyone how she planned to pay for things (down to the penny) now?

Do you now see all of the CRAP that has been weaseled into this virus relief bill? Millions for the National Public Radio Millions for the National Endowment of the Arts. Millions for the Kennedy Center. Millions for the House of Representatives. Shame on the Democrat Legislators for this.
