Congressional Democrats Block McConnell’s Funding Attempt

They are obstructing for the sake of their radical agenda yet again.

Congressional Democrats have blocked Sen. Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s efforts to get unanimous consent to pass the next round of coronavirus aid for America’s small business owners. (CNBC)

Senate Republicans hoped to pass a bill Thursday to put $250 billion more into a loan program for small businesses devastated by the coronavirus pandemic. With lawmakers out of Washington, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell tried to move the measure by unanimous consent, meaning any one senator had the power to block it. 

On Wednesday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer asked for the bill to include $250 billion for hospitals, health care systems, state and local governments and food assistance program, on top of money for small companies. However, Pelosi said she only wanted $125 billion for the existing program specifically, and another $125 billion for community-based lenders and Small Business Administration disaster assistance loans and grants.

Who prohibited WH staff from testifying be Congress? Who filed non security breach documents and called them confidential so that they could be released to the public. Who wanted the impeachment to be whitewashed by the DOJ and Senate. Oh Man, don’t tell me it was trump being obstructive.

You’re a dimwit. Get over it, crooked Hillary lost. The Democratic party currently is pathetic. You know damn well that impeachment was a total hoax. Democrats got caught with their pants down, when the President, thankfully, released the transcript. There is absolutely nothing obstructive with executive privilege. You need to get your information from another news source; you must watch CNN fake news.

James Clapper has admitted it was b.o.’s White House that authorizes spying on the Trumpcampaign, resulting in a fake dossier and nvetted FISA warrants bathe partisian hack, James Comey.

Take it from a “Michigander”…
The Democratic Party is power hungry. This needs to stop. Our dim witted governor has no idea what the small businesses need outside of Wayne County. She would get lost if asked to drive to a rural town.
This small business boost would help keep our economy somewhat afloat.
Unfortunately, if the dem party gets their way, there will be many shuttered businesses and farms by the end of the summer. I’d like to see where her inner city constituents will get their food from then.

He is making it up. Who would have thought!

“The Constitution does not expressly grant the president additional powers in times of national emergency. However, many scholars think that the Framers implied these powers because the structural design of the Executive Branch enables it to act faster than the Legislative Branch.”

In this case Drumpf acts last.

Pelosi and Schumer are crazy scum of the earth liars. They want to use money for everything but the Virus. They want to dish out money to people who will give them money in return and for their votes… Mail in voting is a crock if I ever heard one. We need VOTER ID in order to vote. All the dems want is a way to cheat the American Citizens voters votes. SCAM it is called.
They want to be able to manipulate out votes to give them a chance to win the house, senate president and all local levels in their favor. They the democrats are very sick people.
I say to the Republican leaders and congress stand up to them and let them never to have their way. Make sure they the democrats are noted and called out for their trying to load up a bill for non virus support even though some sounds like it but under the water line they are conniving to take our money and use for their own benefits.. BEWARE of these evil people

The problem you have with democrats having a better economy than republicans is who you listen too. If you had 100 economist answer the question who runs the best economy you would get possible 100 answers. So pick the one you like best and that is truth to you.
So let’s look back at the last 50 or so years. Carter years. Double digits inflation, That was good for America, right?
Reagan years. Started on the road to recovery from double digits inflation to the coming prosperity for years to come. Now here is where other economist would disagree. Some economist say Reagan years was the start of the down fall of the America economy that we have seen later.
Clinton years. His good economy was because of the republicans win in 1994 with the contract with America. Bill gets the credit for what the republican did in congress.
Bush economy was going good until the housing bust which was caused by the democrats encouraging the loan companys to make bad home loans.
Obama years. Had the slowest recovery on record. GDP never went over 3% in all his eight years the first president to do that. More people on welfare.
Trump 3 years unemployment stayed low and went lower. Stock market broke records, more blacks, hispanics, women working in the history.

Pelosi held the Phase 3 Bill hostage to get her wish list added to it. So things were approved for things not involving the virus. So when she went to sign the Phase 3 Bill she had the nerve to call for a Phase 4 because more PPE’s were needed for Medical and healthcare workers, Nany you would have had this money if your crap wasn’t in the original Bill. She got away with it once to get her way and she will try it again, she has more goodies to put in. Call Pelosi’s office and tell her how she screwed the Medical and Healthcare workers. I hope these people remember this come November, if not I will remind them. My blood was boiling when I called her office and I used words I don’t usually use to get my point across.

During Trump’s first 36 months in office, the US economy has gained 6.6 million jobs. But during a comparable 36-month period at the end of Obama’s tenure, employers added 8.1 million jobs, or 23% more than what has been added since Trump took office.

Since 15 million persons have applied for unemployment(would have many more if people were able to sign up), it appears that there will actually be 10 million or more job LOSSES under Trump.

Top Ten Causes of death in the US: (per the CDC last accumulation 2015)

613348 Heart Disease
591699 Cancer
147101 Chronic Lower Respiratory Disease
136053 Accidents inc Car Crashes and Shootings
133033 Stroke
93541 Alzheimers
76488 Diabetes
55227 Influenza and Pneumonia
48146 Kidney Disease
42773 Suicide

As of today US Deaths accounted to the Corona Virus Flu:

15634 with a new projection of 20,000 or so. EXPERTS Projections which contributed to the response told us 2.5 Billion infected in 45 days and 53 Million killed worldwide. (Forbes)

Don’t even get me started on the claim that “Social Distancing”, shutting down the Country, destroying the Economy, and throwing 3 TRILLION dollars at it (so far) has resulted in reducing that number in the US to less that half the annual suicide rate…

So get your head out of your ass and stop asking stupid questions…. how about ask who is responsible for this in the first place and who will be held accountable for the damage done by exponentially erroneous projections of the magnitude of this problem!

At this Juncture Shumer and Pelosi’s cavalier behavior suggest this Virus is not the danger it was made out to be – it’s New, but other wise it is the same risk as seasonal flu to any of the elderly and/or those those with per-existing medical conditions. If it was truly dangerous Trump hater Bill gates would have already told them. The goal now is to provoke a locked down America against Trump and they think they will do that by delay, delay, delay, – and Bill Gates has temerity to say that “large public gatherings may not return “at all” until we have a “a vaccine that we’ve gotten out to basically the entire world”.
