“As Congress tries to hash out a stimulus package potentially worth more than $1 trillion, Democrats are gearing up for a fight over whether direct payments to Americans struggling with the economic fallout of the coronavirus pandemic will be enough.
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer is among those arguing for expanded unemployment insurance as a source of relief.

“A single $1,000 check would help someone pay their landlord in March but what happens after that?” the New York Democrat said on the chamber floor Wednesday. “A thousand dollars goes by pretty quickly if you’re unemployed. In contrast, expanded unemployment insurance — beefed-up unemployment insurance — covers you for a much longer time and would provide a much bigger safety net.”

  1. Forgive me for being long winded, but it must be said…..During the cold war there were plans built on the premise of how the country would survive and overcome nuclear, chemical, and biological attacks not just for the military, but for the population as a whole. They were comprehensive and such plans are maintained, updated, and refined by the DOD, FEMA, and the FCDA.

  2. Keeping spring breaks going is great….think about it….you are concentrating low risk carriers that could be at home with their elderly parents and grand parents AWAY from these populations. Keep them on the beach for another week, fine with me.

  3. "An employer shall provide paid leave for each day of leave under section 102(a)(1)(F) that an employee takes after taking leave under such section for 10 days." “(F) During the period beginning on the date the Emergency Family and Medical Leave Expansion Act takes effect, and ending on December 31, 2020, because of a qualifying need related to a public health emergency in accordance with section 110.”.

  4. Canada is giving all affected workers either instant Un-Employment insurance payments or for others not covered a $450 per week supplement for 14 weeks. That is real and there is no means test needed. Hopefully the US will do something similar rather than throw money at big businesses who would misuse it…

  5. So 75% for the little guy, 20% for the little guy, and 5% to fight the disease is not pro worker. $500 billion for aid to individuals through direct payments or payroll tax cuts. $300B loan guarantees for small business.
    Democrats packing in the Pork, MEDICAID expansion, unemployment benefits expansion, student debt $10K forgiveness make Monthly Payments On Behalf Of Borrowers For Duration Of National Emergency And Be Followed By 3-Month Grace Period At Program Termination,  More SNAP, and pay mortgages and rent,  want airlines to reduce their carbon emissions in exchange for federal aid, clean-tech tax credits. Those include incentives for electric vehicles, battery storage, offshore wind and solar energy that were left out of a December tax extenders package. PORK PORK PORK

  6. Because corrupt Republicans are trying to give money to people that don't needed. It should be targeted to folks that need it. Pelosi is correct. She's doing a good job.

    Trump is at fault for the outbreak and has lied over and over.

  7. I’m glade you guys point that out. I know a bunch of people that are not citizens (Green card) that are hard working people and never once got Assistance from the government in there life. That’s been paying taxes since they were old enough to work. And they’re not gonna get anything

  8. Pelosi and neoliberals means-testing. Trump give the people the money and freeze evictions. Trump is more progressive than Pelosi LMAO This is why Trump will destroy Joementia. If you continue to support the DNC and Democratic party at this point you're an idiot and need to bash your head in the wall just for fun. Still support people like Ilhan but vote Green down the line.

  9. I like TYT and i have a suggestion .It sounds so repetitive when you go on and on about Dem establishment so i suggest you guys first get guys to run for elective seat both in the house and senate ensuring passage of bills that you like and support your policies .You can get progressive candidate who can take over dem seats just like AOC then you can change from with in .I understand you anger to Biden but again here is an opportunity to push aside you feelings and hold him to account if he is the nominee and i would also suggest that you try and stop blaming those who voted for Biden because you risk alienating them especially the Black vote that has always carried the Democratics .Just a suggestion.

  10. Haven't been watching for awhile, tired of the outrage but love your new look, much smarter & cleaner. Also like the suggestion to start supporting candidates to take over D seats in Congress. The only way Progressives will make progress imo. Need more seats at the table.

  11. YOU FOOLS !!!!!!! BOTH WINGS OF THE BIRD HAVE UNITED TO BRING THE COUNTRY DOWN ! NO MORE PRIVATE BUSINESS UNLESS YOU GO PARTNERSHIP WITH THE US GOVERNMENT ! IF YOU ACCEPT A RESTART LOAN UNCLE SAM IS GONNA BE YOUR PARTNER AND SHARE YOUR PROFITS ! BUT DONT WORRY BERNIE LOVES EACH AND EVERY ONE OF YOU AND WILL SAVE YOU ALL FROM RUIN IF HE,S ELECTED .

  12. The Rothchild’s family owns most of the multinational corporations and banks. They will get the majority of the bail out money! Does anybody understand what I’m telling them? We the people are being duped!!!
