McConnell details $500 billion COVID bill set for Wednesday vote
By Jordain Carney - 10/17/20 05:05 PM EDT

The Senate will vote on a $500 billion GOP coronavirus relief bill on Wednesday, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) announced on Saturday.

The bill — which is less than a third of the size of the $1.8 trillion offer from the White House — will include a federal unemployment benefit and another round of small business assistance under the Paycheck Protection Program.

The bill, according to McConnell, will also include more than $100 billion for schools, as well as money for testing, contact tracing and vaccine development and distribution.


McConnell will require Democratic help to get the 60 votes needed to pass the bill in the Senate. Democrats previously blocked a similar bill and are expected to do the same to the new GOP proposal.

“Nobody thinks this $500B+ proposal would resolve every problem forever. It would deliver huge amounts of additional help to workers and families right now while Washington keeps arguing over the rest,” McConnell said.

In addition to the $500 billion package, McConnell said the Senate will vote on Tuesday on a stand-alone PPP proposal. It would also need 60 votes to ultimately pass the Senate. Republicans had previously planned to hold a stand-alone PPP vote in August but scrapped it because of caucus infighting.

Our socialist democrats want to collapse our economy, just like they did in Germany last century, or more recently Venezuela.  President Trump wants sensible spending and therefore sensible taxes, not economy breaking taxes.
Soros Nazi gold wants Nazi Germany II America, namely history repeating itself.  Open your eyes, the information is before you, just look. :yowsa: 999yawn :yowsa:

It is a two-thirds REPUBLICAN government that has spent 15 TRILLION dollars - More money... nearly doubling the Obama administration... More money spent, more paper printed than any time in history.

The very same can be said of Dubya's government - writing more money than all the money COMBINED in the history of the country previous to his administration.

Your claims fall on deaf ears.
Republicans are not going to save us from financial collapse. They are part and parcel with it, and you are voting them in.

Pelosi and democrat company still keep demanding they won't pass President Trumps bills because they don't spend enough.  Your lockstep has made your eyes glaze over.

Don't care about Pelousy and the left. They only succeed because they face no opposition... As 15 TRILLION dollars passed by a Republican senate and signed by a Republican president amply proves.

   With all due Respect @christian Trump has always had a VETO PEN which he has rarely used, if ever.

No government in the 6,000 years of modern mankind history has led its people into anything but the history books with a simple lesson, don't let this happen to you.

Both the Senate and the President can say "no". My brush is just fine, thank you!

The democrats get their way aND GOLLY GEE, NO BLAME, EXCEPT REPUBLICANS SHARE THE BLAME.  Yet when Republicans get their way, and not hardly in the last FOUR YEARS, you blamers can't find a voice to share blame, with democrats, eh?  You really must think people are stupid to not see through that.

When the Republicns had two years to reverse Obama administration policies (some of which hadn't even fully kicked in yet) they FAILED. IF you want something to 'shout' about, try shouting about that.

They failed to seize the moment. In doing so they continued to act as if the Democrats were running the show. Someone would have to be pretty uninformed to not see that.

And not a one of them is going to pay for it. So much for holding their feet to the fire.

and neither party is serious about passing the stimulus bill before the election because it would benefit the President.  How rare democrats don't want wild reckless spending.  Well blame Trump anyway,right ?

Correct.  I agree with you.  No one talks about the BILLIONS coming in from China.  Or a trillion dollars, that came into Treasury.  I can't recall where I read that.  All media wants us to know is,  what is spent and blame POTUS.  Our deficit. I read that is bogus anyway. Can't remember but it ties into FEDERAL RESERVE and China devaluing  their money.  Maybe someone, totally informed,  can explain it in detail.  DC PATRIOT?  YOU?
 
The premise is, we don't have a deficit.


P.S.  This is as far as I got,  pointing-up    in reading posts on here.  Now, I see others are talking about the deficit too.  This is my ESP.  lol.  I will read them now.

The nazis, NATIONAL SOCIALIST DEMOCRATIC PARTY NSDAP AND communists of last centuries Germany forced Kaiser Whilhelm out and took over.  The Nazis and Communists rebellions and warring factions brought Germany down with the addition of the Great Depression.  It was a free for all for a while.  Much like todays lock-steppers are doing in American cities with brownshirt tactics of so long ago.

Of course not. If Tumpy is too liberal for me, what would possibly lead you to believe I would vote for Biden?

4 TRILLION NEW DEAL? 

A mere 4T?? A pittance compared to what Republicans have spent under Tumpy in the last 4 years.

That is called mind-reading - Accusing other members of motives you cannot possibly know.

And I have already answered your shallow accusations. So why continue them other than poo-throwing?

Yes, really. The guy at the top takes the credit and the blame. That is the case in any hierarchical structure.

I didn't say it only applies to Republicans... More that you only seem to apply it to Democrats, when Republicans are just as greasy... Look into the Bushes... McCains.... the Romneys.

Constantly insisting democrats and Republicans are equal, except when the President is a Republican the blame then shift unequally to be the Presidents blame alone shows outrageous and uneven blaming gaming.  Its not a clever getaway with it game, its clear how your game is played, roamer1.
The buck always stops at the top, we already exposed that farce.  Democrats rarely are held accountable and many complain about it here and often.

And why are the Democrats not held accountable? Ever ask that question?


It just might be because there are Republicans in the same schemes who would be exposed.

In all too many instances, the Swamp is a non-  or bi-partisan effort. It is independent of Party lines.
