??????? wtf you talking about?
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...

AND again--NO WE AREN'T. There are currently THREE bills. One has been sent and signed---the other two have NOT.
AND an additional bill sitting in the House.
Great system. Bills to OK sending relief that could save lives. How about just sending the money?
Oh, no! We can't do that!

This bill is just a deplorable handout to the richest corporations on the planet. Pure corporate socialism. This is what capitalism means to the Tea Party clowns.

It would seem to be much, much more than that and apparently they learned from the 2008 bailout, stipulation on corporations. Even the small business loans only become grants if they keep employees.

This is a ploy and wont work.
"The concern from Sens. Graham, Tim Scott, R-S.C., Ben Sasse, R-Neb., and Rick Scott, R-Fla., is that the current version could pay workers more in unemployment benefits than they're currently making, by sticking a $600 per week payment on top of ordinary benefits that are calculated as a percentage of income. This could disrupt the labor market further, the lawmakers warn. "
Trying to derail this much needed bill will bite them in the a$$.

Did you hear Trump's pathetic press conf today? Somebody asked him about the Kennedy Center funding.
Trump: Well...you know I love the arts. I don't have time for the arts but I like them. I don't have time because I have other things to do but I'd like to go to Romeo and Juliet, but I can't because...well, you know what's going on now and I don't have time, but the Democrats like that sort of thing and they ASKED for the funding so I gave it to them."
