Democrats and Republicans both backed the bill, which is designed to provide temporary relief for households and businesses reeling by the sudden economic downturn. President Trump has signaled he will sign it into law immediately. Read more: wapo.st/2QMxymE. Subscribe to The Washington Post on RUvid: wapo.st/2QOdcqK

Those in congress look like fools in those masks as the whole world laughs at America. I think this whole scare tactics where put upon America so congress, the senate and all politicians can line there pockets with this 2 trillion dollars. Yes scare tactics. Tuberculosis kills 1.5 million every year and no one wheres a mask or closes anything. Tuberculosis is a air pathogenesis disease with no cure and a 100 percent death rate. So stop the bs. Also by printing 2 trillion dollars. Americans bank accounts savings will be fleeced as the dollar further weakens in purchase power. All so you politicians can line your pockets. Stop pretending you love us or Jesus. We dont buy it anymore. You are all thieves funding your orgies in the white house. This is my opinion. You politicians should all be ashamed to play this opera on Americans. Costing them unknown consequences. Shame you politicians wont have tho. Because you have no conscience at all. So im ashamed for you.

So, for all these years, our Politicians kept on complaining that we didn't have enough money for education, for universal healthcare, for improving the infrastructure, for our veterans, for our social security fund and pension, etc.... but, as soon as the rich cocksuckers of Wall Street start losing money, and the big billionaire corporations need a bailout, the government all of a sudden can magically come up with $2 trillion, which the taxpayers have to payback. What a great country, home of the slaves, land of the greed.

There's not even half a billion people in the USA so if you approved a billion you can give every American $1milion and still have more than half a billion to give towards the virus. why the hell? he approving 6.2 trillion that's way excessive and unnecessary and it's going to hurt the Dollar. Everything is going to skyrocket after the virus is gone, every thing even your home's water supply everything.

Would one of you reporters please ask POTUS why people who are a little behind on their child support payments do not get relief from this catastrophe. A woman, a friend of mine, who struggles very hard in life, is contemplating suicide because she isn't going to be able to survive without starving to death. Why does anybody have to be discriminated against in this time? Poor people, behind on their child support, are not pour out of choice. Let's not make them suffer additionally for their lack of wealth during this emergency.

Are some business planning to deduct relief fund $ from employee take home pay? Recent stories indicate some business are requiring employees certify the amount of $ received and will deduct this amount from their pay. So businesses may get an interest free/free loan plus the employee relief $===that seems like fraud. Just my humble opinion! Source--Fox News Article, March 28, 2020

People on unemployment will be getting projected 3k to 4k a month. There are still americans still working in this pandemic making minimum wage with no additional weekly payouts. How is that fair? All employees making under a certain number should be entitled to the extra 600$ per week.

One of Speaker Pelosi's top lieutenants in Congress said that right now - as Americans face a pandemic - "is a tremendous opportunity to restructure things to fit our vision." Now we're learning more about what that "vision" includes. The George Soros-funded radical Left group Open Democracy is advocating, "The Coronavirus crisis shows it's time to abolish the family." This is evil. It's nothing less than a Marxist attack on the Church, the family, and freedom and all Americans.

@Blaster Elforg Nancy Pelosi add 1 billion dollars for plan parenthood Abortions to the Corona virus bill she add 1billion for the Green plan that money goes to the elite at the world U.N., she add another million or so to Beauty Junk, and another billion to more junk. This people want to rule you NWO but I just dont see money for the Church. Think about what your saying, every disaster in the world who are first to help, the church. Think again every nation that has eliminated the church has become a Socialist nation, Karl Marx said it best socialism is one step to communism. Why do you think they want to destroy the church, because your constitution is based on Christian values. By destroying the church you in turn destroy your Constitution. You should take some time and travel the world and you will see that America is Blessed, and if the church is gone so is everything you call Freedoms. Every Great nation must destroy its self from within before its destroyed from without.

People do not spend money not because of they do not have money. They do not spend money because of they are scared to spend money at the stores shops malls etc. Helicopter money is not proper solution and panacea. Vaccine and medicine are the antidote to overcome this catastrophe. Because decrease in consumption and unemployment by coronavirus is the reason why global economy is under recession. This tragedy is not from financial crisis, but from natural disaster.

@igor chak I also want to say, that most people only begin to care out of two reasons, empathy or going through a financial crisis. But empathy wont only save a person financially but save a person spiritually and mentally.

@igor chak In a world by what's right, yes. Yet you also have to consider, the basketball players are only rich because of the people, and so the same as any other rich man. Yet you should consider why is the world setup this way if the majority wants what is right to happen. In my honest opinion we are slaves to the system, because we are to afraid to lose our flesh for our children. Are we really living a 120 year life, for ourselves, when if we don't do anything about it now, we just leave our children to be slaves to the system. We can not live a selfish life for life is a gift that no man can give nor take. We do it for each other, be blessed my friend The Lord Jesus loves you very much, and his father as well, and may the spirit of the lord be with you!

This is a bunch of bull...it's amazing how all this help comes during election time...And what is $1,200 going to do for a family? However they provide more for guns and ammunition when they could pay everybody's mortgage at least for 2-3 months for the money they spend on Wars. I've been paying taxes from my check since I was old enough to get a job.
