    Not exactly. He’s saying this so that desperate people will vote for him. Trust me, he has no desire to act on his words. It’s simply a carrot for those desperate people out there to latch onto. He could have said this a dozen times before now. Why then is he suddenly so concerned? He’s a snake oil salesman. This is snake oil, plain and simple.

    Yes, there’s trouble in River City, but the lies and deceit Trump is peddling is far from the cure.

    LMFAO @ this desperate fuck.

    Trump told Rush: I want a bigger stimulus package than what Nancy wants. I want the exact opposite of what the democrats and republicans want. We have to do this. I'm telling you something I don't tell anybody else




    I said Bigger!!

    Yes sorry cynical. GTFO man, Trump said both the anti-confederate and the neonazis had fine people on their sides. In no conceivable world could there be good people on the Neonazi side. I can believe there were good intentioned people on the anti-confederacy because they were trying to remove the statues of traitors - unless you think that the confederates were honorable people.
    That is literally the opposite of what he said! LOL go read the other thread where i laid this out.

    SCtrojan: always wrong since 2005

    LMFAO - Pelosi just backed up a Road roller on Trump - he's been taking steroids and he now can't think clearly. She said she's going no where near the WH - the most dangerous place on the planet.


    President Donald Trump abruptly -- and single-handedly -- short-circuited stimulus negotiations on Tuesday, only to appear to reverse course eight hours later in a pair of tweets.

    Why is $500k the right number?

    Democrats are pushing to allocate $900 billion in funds to state and local governments to help with the fallout from the pandemic. Republicans say $150 billion will be enough to fill any budget gaps.

    It's projected that state and local government revenues will decline $188 billion in 2020, $189 billion in 2021, and $167 billion in 2022—including those fees to hospitals and higher education. Without promises of further aid, these governments are likely to cut spending now to prepare for future imbalances. But in reality they probably need to increase their typical spending to provide for public health services. Cutbacks by state and local governments will hurt any economic recovery.



    The truth is that most states had built up healthy rainy day funds amounting to nearly 10% of state revenues before the pandemic. COVID-19 annihilated those reserves in a matter of months. During a Sept. 17 hearing of the congressional commission, it was noted that Miami went into the crisis with a surplus of $20 million. “COVID-19 wiped that out, and now we face a huge deficit.”

    It’s also a fact that pandemic-related budget carnage won’t honor partisan boundaries. In testimony at the commission hearing, it was pointed out that among the states most firmly in the budgetary crosshairs are those dependent on energy industries, such as Alaska, North Dakota, Louisiana and West Virginia, and on travel and tourism, such as Florida. These are all red states.

    Evidence of the effect of state and local government spending on overall economic growth is easy to find: Just look at the Great Recession. ​​​​​From the crash of 2008 through 2012, state and local payrolls shed nearly 600,000 jobs. The resulting damage to state and local services was widespread and most directly at residents most dependent on those services. Cuts in various categories were imposed by 46 states and the District of Columbia, according to the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities: 31 cut healthcare programs, 29 and D.C. cut programs for the elderly and disabled, 34 states and D.C. instituted cuts in higher education.



    Short version: Stimulus Checks, Unemployment Benefits, Housing Assistance, Childcare and Education, Paycheck Protection Loan Program, Workers Protection & Job Security, and Food Assistance.

    TL;DR version

    Not Safe For Work!
    Stimulus Checks
    - $1,200 to individuals earning an adjusted gross income of up to $75,000 and $2,400 for couples earning up to $150,000, as well as an additional $500 per dependent, which includes full-time students below age 24 and adult dependents.

    Unemployment Benefits
    - Restores the $600 weekly enhanced federal unemployment payments through January 2021.

    - The bill also extends the Pandemic Unemployment Assistance program, which specifically covers business owners, self-employed Americans, gig workers and independent contractors who are not typically eligible for unemployment, through January 2021.

    - The bill also earmarks $925 million to assist states in processing unemployment insurance claims.

    Housing Assistance
    - To help “keep over 2.2 million families stably housed,” Democrats earmarked $4 billion to public housing agencies (PHAs), including $1 billion for vouchers for those who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless, as well as anyone who may be fleeing domestic violence.

    - The legislation allocates $5 billion for homeless assistance grants and $50 billion to provide emergency assistance to low-income renters who may be at risk of homelessness due to eviction. It also gives $100 million to the Neighborhood Reinvestment Corporation (NeighborWorks) to support housing counselors in providing increased services, including foreclosure and eviction mitigation counseling.

    Childcare and Education
    - Democrats earmarked $225 billion for education in the latest relief package. A large part of that funding includes $182 billion for K-12 schools and $39 billion for higher education, including colleges and universities. Unlike the Republican bill proposed in July, this funding is not tied to whether or not a school chooses to reopen in-person.

    - Additionally, the bill would provide $57 billion to support child care for families, a significant increase from the $7 billion that the previous HEROES Act provided and the $15 billion the Republican-led package proposed.

    - Democrats are also proposing to extend the suspension of federal student loan payments through September 2021. No interest would accrue on these loans until September 2021 as well

    Paycheck Protection Loan Program
    - Democrats have proposed more funding and modifications the Paycheck Protection Program to better service a wider range of small organizations, including allowing hard-hit businesses to apply for a second loan and creating a more streamlined application and forgiveness process.

    Specifically, the legislation proposes to set aside funds for businesses with less than 10 employees, sole proprietors, the self-employed and nonprofits.

    Workers Protection and Job Security
    - Democrats included provisions in the new bill that require the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) to issue a “strong, enforceable standard” and require all workplaces to develop and implement infection control plans based on CDC expertise.

    - Democrats have also included proposed protections that stop Americans from losing health insurance if they’re laid off. Instead, unemployed Americans will be able to get access to subsidies for health care through the insurance marketplaces. The Economic Policy Institute estimates that up to 12 million Americans may have lost their employer-sponsored health insurance.

    - Democrats are also proposing to extend paid sick and family leave, enacted in the Families First Coronavirus Response Act, through the end of February 2021.Employees employed by companies with less than 500 employees are generally eligible for two weeks of paid sick leave under the program, but it also provides benefits to parents who are unable to secure child care.

    - The bill also aims to provide relief to several hard-hit industries, including airlines and restaurants. The bill gives $25 billion to U.S. airlines to help those corporations avoid layoffs, with another $3 billion earmarked for independent contractors who service the airlines. The bill also allocates $120 billion in aid to the restaurant industry.

    Food Assistance
    - The updated HEROES Act allocated $10 billion to support a 15% increase to the maximum benefits for those participating in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) through September 2021. The bill also provides more than $500 million for additional funding for nutrition programs, including the Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women Infants and Children (WIC) and the Emergency Food Assistance Program (TEFAP).




    The Federal government offers better loan terms to businesses than state and local governments.

    For example, The Fed purchased bonds of the cigarette maker Philip Morris at an interest rate of only 0.75% over four years. But it demanded 1.93% interest and repayment over only three years from the New York Metropolitan Transportation Authority. Of the $500 billion available through the Municipal Lending Facility for states and local governments, only $1.67 billion has been lent out because potential borrowers consider the loan terms insupportably punitive.
    Scrap the 1200 to citizens and money to big corporations. Send it to states and unemployment, and small businesses. States need to report back where it is going.

    Really that is all that needs to be done.
