Trump made the offer 3 months ago and the Dems sat on their thumbs.

Re: Covid relief simplified for progressives

how did we get to this aliceinwonderland world where the sitting president can make some good suggestions for a clean covid bill, and the swamp creatures try to give money to every fruitloop cause and special interest group and the media just ignores what is going on?

Plus you have the assorted doornobs like the fruitloops here keeping up their sheeplike rhetoric. Clueless bunch of libtards and, don't forget, RINO's too.

BA, you would swear that the real numb nutz has a chinese paymaster to keep his assault up on America, would you not?

bruce isn't very smart, we get evidence of that daily here, as well as karen and richellester and maybe we can give them a pass for being sheep and cheering big team D on, but if the hatred of the BTO and prom queen is that intense after 40 years or more, that nutz dude needs some serious psychiatric help.

Re: Covid relief simplified for progressives

Hey Red, according to Nox`s autobiography on here he was a George W Bush republican, but got jaded and pissed because of the Iraq wars and became a Democrat....okay fair enough, he fell into a rabbit hole of "melting points of aluminum and such" that is forgivable, I`ve put on a tinfoil hat myself from time to time.  However, going rapidly hard left, to the left of Bernie Sanders, never saying a disparaging word about China. 

I get it some out there are ashamed of America how we treated Blacks, Indians and Coolies ...but there again, look at the atrocities committed by China pre and post Mao and "America is the bad guy"??????

But yes, to post like Nox is beyond insanity, there has to be a paycheck involved, along with a mental condition.

Nice try but it was McConnell who blocked both the White House proposal and the House bill.  In the end, Mnuchin and Pelosi settled on $1.4 trillion including $1200 stimulus checks and$300 billion for state & local.  They stripped that out to get McConnell to go with the $900 billion and $600 stimulus checks. 

  The villains here are the Senate Republicans, even trump says that.

The solution is very simple. Cross out all of the foreign aid and only give money to American citizens. If they fail to do so don't call it covid relief. Re name the bill foreign aid.

Anyway.

My bet is that Pres. Whiny Baby is going to pocket veto the deal and throw everything into total chaos.

My reasoning is as it always has been- this isn’t just about the tender hurt feelers of a sociopath.

He knows that his life and his family’s collapse rapidly when Biden takes the oath.
