A US President has no authority to change tax rates unilaterally. Only Congress may do so. Any such attempt on the part of the President would immediately land in the courts and likely end there.

Hold your ground Speaker Pelosi!

Pelosi and Schumer have pushed for a comprehensive package of assistance for the unemployed, the poor, hospitals, schools, and state and local governments.

While Trump/barr/McConnell continue to push for more money for their fellow 'elite' knowing the 'elite' will once again kick money back to the R's re-election campaigns.

What do you call a nation's political-economic system when the government and a private corporation are so closely connected. Is Trump getting advice from Putin and setting up national socialism in the US. National socialism has certainly helped make Putin one of the globe's richest. Some say the richest.

Yes, a President can unilaterally change it if Congress doesn’t act and our Congress just doesn’t act. Why do you think they have an 18% approval rating.

Only Congress may do so. Any such attempt on the part of the President would immediately land in the courts and likely end there.

Very true, but we don’t live in normal times, if Congress fails to do its job and remains in gridlock the President can intervene.

Republicans did not give a "damn" about Americans who are hurting.

It's Pelosi who doesn't give a damn about Americans who are hurting. Look at her neighborhood in Democrat-run San Francisco, it's a disaster while she eats her designer ice cream.

So basically you’re saying, punish the job creators push for more failed socialism and the money should go to Democrats? Don’t be greedy, Dems have the unions and teachers unions in their pockets, so they’re good and that also means when the country is reopened for business (if they even have a business waiting) they shouldn’t hire people or maybe hire, train and pay people less? Ok, punish the people then, nice.

Capitalism, economic opportunity and competitiveness.

Is Trump getting advice from Putin

Oh, here we go with that debunked crap again.....

The GOP will have to increase their number. As each day passes more pressure is put on them.

This is your daily reminder that we shut down America, impoverished millions, forced businesses to fail and homeowners to foreclose, over a virus that has a 99.96% survival rate.

And the Democrats are demanding we continue the lockdowns for everyone but their protesters.

ah no he cant , itll end up in court. and hell most likely lose like all the other SC decisions

Very true, but we don’t live in normal times, if Congress fails to do its job and remains in gridlock the President can intervene.

whats he going to do have another shutdown, he already folded on the last two.

basically Dems what more money for the unemployed, Republicans want less so they force people back to work. Thinking they can fix the economy before November,

It's Pelosi who doesn't give a damn about Americans who are hurting.

what are you talking about it, Dems want more support for unemployed, Republicans want to cut unemployment to $200, they think by forcing people back to work in the middle of a pandemic they can fix the economy before November, things are going to get worse before they get better. Don't worry itll take another Democrat president to fix the financial mess left over from a Republican administration

The GOP will have to increase their number. As each day passes more pressure is put on them.

each passing day means more evictions less food on the table, No you cant force 40million back to work when there isnt even the jobs to employ them. Republicans are in the crusher getting squeezed for every day they delay

what are you talking about it, Dems want more support for unemployed,

you’re not even taking care of the homeless within their own communities and they want more money and who’s paying for that and how long do they think they’re going to keep Americans out of work and how long do they think that these businesses will stay afloat with this continued lockdown, you never ever see Democrats talk about these issues, the only thing they talk about is raising taxes, pay your fair share and, more money. As long as there is a printing machine we can print the money, don’t worry about the value of the currency just continue printing it.

Don't worry itll take another Democrat president to fix the financial mess left over from a Republican administration.

There won’t be anything left to fix if the Democrats take control, there’s only so much money that they can swindle from taxpayers
