Not one republican voted to give Americans $1,400

Re: Not one republican voted to give Americans $1,400

$2000 doesn't seem like much of an issue in other countries, that includes rent, electricity, water, ect. being covered and benefits for the unemployed, especially ones effected by the pandemic.

Yet the United States has to have this partisan battle for a fair stimulus. It's ridiculous.

If any Republican voter's water gets shut off, just keep this in mind.

LE TEMPS DETRUIT TOUT.

Re: Not one republican voted to give Americans $1,400

I don't care about what side you are on. This shouldn't be about politics.
This is about people's LIVES! These politicians need to think about the people who voted for them. It's time for both sides to work together for the people they are suppose to be working for. I'm sick of this nonsense.

You asked a pretty question; I've given you the ugly answer.

Re: Not one republican voted to give Americans $1,400

They are only making things worse for the party, and I didn't think that things could get any worse.

I no longer care for either party.

Republicans don't care about the poor

Sounds like you have been drinking conmans koolaid. You realize of course that when democrats were shutting all those businesses that employed mostly low wage workers one could have just have easily pointed and said "democrats don't care about the poor" Neither are true. It is partisan nonsense. Try to rise above it. In the case of the democrats they saw corona and panicked. They thought they were doing the right thing and perhaps in some cases they were. Be they used smothering blanket measures that were far too much in most areas which led to backlash which defeated the point. In the case of the republicans they don't oppose the $1400 stimulus so much as the do all the pork the democrats have attatched to the bill. They also look at our balloning national debt and are very worried, as we all should be.

I am beginning to think I am too NICE to folks round here.

Re: Not one republican voted to give Americans $1,400

The National debt is inconsequential, always has been, still is. It keeps growing, and no president is going to stop that. So you goons can stop babbling about it anytime now.

Re: Not one republican voted to give Americans $1,400

lol republicans that talk about handing out money for people’s lively hoods ,like it’s going to break the country and quickly quickly forgetting that its tax payer money ,mostly from the middle class, while giving the rich more tax cuts are a totally different kind of bottom feeding scum.

Top 10 Reasons Why The National Debt Matters

1. The return of trillion dollar deficits.

The budget deficit was $984 billion in 2019, according to the Department of the Treasury. The Congressional Budget Office (CBO) projects that deficits will rise to $1.4 trillion by 2029, resulting in a cumulative deficit of $12.2 trillion over the 10-year period from 2020 to 2029.
Interest costs are growing rapidly.

Interest costs were $376 billion in 2019, and are projected to rise to $807 billion by 2029. Over the next decade, interest will total nearly $6 trillion. We spend nearly as much or more on net interest costs than we do in other essential areas such as Medicaid or Income Security Programs.
Key investments in our future are at a risk.

Higher interest costs could crowd out important public investments that can fuel economic growth — priority areas like education, R&D, and infrastructure. A nation saddled with debt will have less to invest in its own future.
Rising debt means lower incomes, fewer economic opportunities for Americans.

Based on CBO projections, a reduction of debt to 42 percent of GDP could increase income, on average, by $5,500 in 30 years. Stagnating wages and growing disparities in income and wealth are very concerning trends. The federal government should not allow budget imbalances to harm American citizens.
Less flexibility to respond to crises.

On our current path, we are at greater risk of a fiscal crisis, and high amounts of debt leave policymakers with much less flexibility to deal with unexpected events. If we face another major recession like that of 2007–2009, it will be more difficult to work our way out.
Protecting the essential safety net.

Our unsustainable fiscal path threatens the safety net and the most vulnerable in our society. If our government does not have sufficient resources, these essential programs, and those who need them most, could be put in jeopardy.
A solid fiscal foundation leads to economic growth.

A solid fiscal outlook provides a foundation for a growing, thriving economy. Putting our nation on a sustainable fiscal path creates a positive environment for growth, opportunity, and prosperity. With a strong fiscal foundation, the nation will have increased access to capital, more resources for private and public investments, improved consumer and business confidence, and a stronger safety net.
The national debt is a bipartisan priority for Americans.

Nearly three-quarters (73 percent) of voters agree that managing the national debt should be a top-three priority for the president and Congress, including 67 percent of Democrats, 75 percent of independents, and 78 percent of Republicans.
Many solutions exist!

The good news is that there are plenty of solutions to choose from. The Peterson Foundation’s Solutions Initiative brought together policy organizations from across the political spectrum to develop long-term fiscal plans. Each of those organizations developed specific proposals that successfully stabilized debt as a share of the economy over the long term.
The sooner we act, the easier the path.

It makes sense to get started soon. According to CBO, we would need annual spending cuts or revenue increases (or both) totaling 1.8 percent of GDP in order to stabilize our debt. If we wait five years, that amount grows by 22 percent. If we wait 10 years, it grows by 50 percent. Like any debt problem, the sooner you start to address it, the easier it is to solve.
Addressing our national debt is an essential part of securing America’s economic future. These key fiscal and economic issues should be at the forefront of the policy conversation in Washington, and our leaders should seize the opportunity to pursue sensible reforms that will put our long-term fiscal trajectory on a sustainable path.

Billion dollar bail outs are fine when they go to large corporations:

But give the lower class a few measly grand and Republicans lose their minds…

Re: Not one republican voted to give Americans $1,400

They would have voted for it if it was money given to billionaires.

Re: Not one republican voted to give Americans $1,400



That's only part of the bill. ¿Do you expect them to vote for billion dollar bailouts to blue states among other democratic pork? Your claim is only valid if the $1400 were the only issue.

If you don't follow the alternative media you are uninformed.
If you follow the mainstream media you are misinformed.

Re: Not one republican voted to give Americans $1,400

"Blue state bailout"?

The biggest givers in our latest report, based on 2018 data, were New York, which paid in US$22 billion more than it received; New Jersey, which paid $12 billion more; Massachusetts, which paid $9 billion more; and Connecticut, which paid $8 billion more than it received.

Combined, these states paid over $50 billion more in taxes than they received in federal spending. For each dollar workers and businesses paid in taxes, the states got an average of 90 cents back. (When Cuomo cited the differences between New York and Kentucky, he was looking at four years of data.)
