McConnell Says $3 Trillion House Bill ‘DOA’

To no one’s surprise, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said that the $3 trillion additional relief package passed by the House late Friday was dead on arrival in the Senate.

But dead? Really?

House Speaker Pelosi saw it a bit differently on Sunday talk shows. Instead of calling out McConnell for ending the bill, she said that everything is up for negotiation and that the Democrats have no red lines. 

That appears to be true. They aren’t seeing red, they’re seeing green, and lots of it, in the form of taxpayer money.

The bill calls for another round of bucks for individuals, only in higher amounts, more than $1 trillion for cities and states, and an extension of the unemployment booster payments that have been keeping people from going back to work even when there’s a job available.

As for his part, McConnell might say DOA, but with an election now less than six months away, he can’t be seen as the stingy one. Expect him to horse trade to protect businesses from Covid-19 liability, like when someone catches the disease at a restaurant and then sues for millions.

It seems highly likely that the two sides will come together to spend more of our money.

    What we should be spending our money on is a huge infrastructure project that would employ thousands of people left jobless by the pandemic, something like the WPA and the CCC projects during the Great Depression. Of course, we had great leadership in Roosevelt , but that is sadly lacking in Trump. He lies, prevaricates and blames others for his own failings. He may be our ruination.

    The only negotiation I would like to see happen is I would like Madame Speaker to disappear and take her minions with her. At this point Madame speaker is a major part of the problem not even remotely connected to the solution,

    I am astounded by dems everyday. I can’t believe they are that blind. President Trump, the Godsend President Warrior, is the only barrier between the nwo taking over the US and having china as it’s leader. We would only be a resource communism country with no individual rights. If you enjoy the right to sit here and type out your opinion freely and with no one coming to your door to arrest you, then wake the hell up. How dumb can you get to criticise your last hope of protecting your freedom. You just must not care to loose the things you love so much, your freedoms and rights. Ignorance is bliss.

    GET RID OF MCCONNELL & HIS CLOSE CONGRESSINAL GOP PEOPLE – PUT THEM ON UNEMPLOYMENT RULES/POLICIES. SEE HOW THEY SURVIVE !!!!!
    HE IS VERRRRY SELFISH & LACKS EMPATHY FOR FELLOWMEN/WOMEN. HE SHOULD HAVE TO PAY OUT % OR MAJORITY OF HIS SALARY, ALONG WITH
    HIS OTHER SELFISH GOP MEMBERS INTO A SPECIAL SET-ASIDE FUND THAT THE DEMOCRATS WOULD BE IN CHARGE OF, TO HELP THE LEGAL UNEMPLOYED AMERICAN’S. THE AMOUNTS WOULD BE BASED ON THEIR PERSONAL WAGES APPROVED & DETERMINED BY THE U.S. TREASURER DEPT OR A HONEST ESTABLISHED U.S. ATTORNEY ESTABLISHED WITH U.S. GOVERMENT POLICIES. (EXCLUDING ANY WITH ANY DEALINGS WITH PRESENT PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP !!
    RESPECTFULLY,
    VOTER & TAXPAYER
