Thanks to the government, millions of Americans were put out of work over the COVID panic. But, they promised to provide some relief, right?
Well, most Americans have been waiting since May for some additional help from the government. But Nancy Pelosi and House Democrats refused to negotiate on a new package.
While Congress kept getting paid their sizeable salaries, Americans went without. Pelosi even admitted she delayed negotiations so they wouldn’t help Trump going into the election.
Now, it looks like they’ve finally come to an agreement. But Americans are getting half of what they were promised.
From Fox News:
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell on Sunday evening said lawmakers have reached a long-awaited coronavirus relief bill that is expected to be voted on later Monday…
According to congressional leaders, the agreement would establish temporary $300 per week supplemental jobless benefits and $600 direct stimulus payments to most Americans, along with a new round of subsidies for hard-hit businesses and money for schools, health care providers, and renters facing eviction.
It looks like lawmakers in Congress managed to cobble together a new COVID relief package. The bill will break the record books by costing the country trillions.
But the average American will only be able to look forward to a $600 check. Hmm… does six hundred dollars cover back rent, mortgages, and grocery bills?
This package will be costing taxpayers trillions for years to come. Yet those out of work can get a temporary 300 bucks a week.
Ask yourself this: why was Congress able to keep collecting their large paychecks, while millions of Americans suffered?
We didn’t ask for this pandemic, nor did we want our states to shut down schools, churches, and businesses.
Yet hurting Americans get peanuts, while the rest of us will have to pay this off for decades.
Doesn’t seem right, does it?
Congress consistently gets pathetically low approval ratings by Americans. Yet they don’t understand why.
Ahem, this is why Nance. This is why.
- Congress is close to passing a new COVID relief bill.
- The bill will provide $600 to Americans, half of what they were promised.
- Meanwhile, lawmakers in D.C. continue to collect large paychecks.
