The Congress has already passed bills to continue supporting Americans impacted by the pandemic. Republicans waited until the last minute to even begin looking for a solution. Why would anyone reelect any of these idiots? A big part of effective governing is planning for what will, or could, happen. Republicans haven't done that in years. The current Republican party is useless.

If the Republicans can't come up with something more than just a few stale crumbs and a trickle-down mist for Main Street', i.e. the majority of Americans, and instead continue to give their fellow 'elite' from Wall Street and corporate board rooms even more billions, expect Main Street to turn against them.

Unless Trump, his Republicans and their multi-billionaire backers (see dark money, Kochs) can continue to find ways to restrict voting.

Too bad the Democrats keep trying to load it with the leftist wish list.

What? You mean money for states and cities who's tax revenues have been slashed by Covid related business closings? It is the Republican bill in the Senate that has $1.75 billion for a new FBI building in it and has a well known poison pill the Democrats will never accept, a provision to prevent anyone from suing any business over anything related to Covid-19. That provision is repugnant and should never see the light of day. Businesses that fail to protect workers and customers must remain liable for their act.

Depriving citizens of much-needed financial aid simply means that the GOP is counting on losing in November. IF they had any sense, they could be doing the right thing for the country by extending financial assistance, campaigning on their largess, and buying votes in the process. Instead, they enable wealthy corporations to raid the funds set aside by the SBA, driving small businesses to the wall, and doling out tax breaks and indemnity from lawsuits to their campaign contributors.

Like a payroll tax cut and a new $1.75 billion FBI HQ a block from Trump's hotel, you mean?

Ahhh, don’t worry, if Biden wins and the Dems roll into power their entitlement proposals will cost the country over $37trillion increasing anything that Trump has created on deficit.

@B4F--since you voted Obama as you love to remind us, it means you already gave Biden your vote in the past.

It will be a cinch to get fence sitters to mark the D box again. Just stare at any picture of haggard Trump for a few milliseconds and they should be good to go.

I didn’t.

Actually, I think the exact opposite when I look at old frail Joe, I’ll tick that “R” without missing a beat.
