They don't want the economy to recover before they lose the election.
They want to pad the stimulus with voting regulations that will allow them to cheat in the election.

Nancy and co. recieve the package and say "ok, this seems in order, we'll accept it on one condition"

The condition is added and sent back to Trump Bros.

"They can't be serious!"

The package gets balled up and tossed into the trash

You mean like the one they passed literally months ago and that Moscow Mitch refused to take up in the Senate?

The Senate has yet to pass its own stimulus package, BTW. Maybe you should turn your ire that way?

Actually they like them period around election time. Trump would have been overjoyed if a bill could have been passed just to give stimulus money to every American.

It was blocked specifically because it would be such an advantage to him, which isn't really a good reason, but it's a reason.

Basically both sides suck.

I'm pro aliens taken the fuck over, or if that doesn't work we create skynet or something at this point. Almost anything has to be better.

Wanded you are wrong. The House passed a bill in May. Mitch McConnell sent the senate into recess, when they returned he refused to take it up. He has been seating judges and saying "no" to any relief.

Now says he will consider 500bn in relief for large corporations only. Mitch McConnell still refuses to consider any relief for the people. He is doing this because he thinks Trump is going to lose. He is sabotaging us and making Joe Biden's job harder, making our lives harder, in hopes of using our suffering as political and electoral leverage against us in 2022, JUST like he did in 2008.

I 100% agree with you. Honestly, I hate both democrats and republicans. All they do is do "pissing contests" with each other. Meanwhile, normal people get screwed (EX: not receiving a stimulus package while the two major political sides scream at each other over who is better). The entire thing is stupid.

This is why a 3 party system would be infinitely better. That way it wouldn't always be sides two sides squabbling back and forth. A 3rd party would be able to capitalize on 2 parties embroiled in us vs them constantly so there wouldn't be incentive to just political football back and forth like they do

right now, there is a republican offer right now, of 1.8 trillion dollars relief package right now, which would pass right now, if democrats would agree to it right now, which they should right meow, but they don't right now, and that's a problem right now

the reason they don't is because that bill is so loaded with loopholes designed for the repubs to stuff their pockets with even more money than the last one.

Exactly. And because of the Democrats' petty politics and selfishness it's the American people who lose. Anyone remember how they'd been praying for a recession since he was elected in 2016, just so they could blame him and gain power back?

2020 was their opening. They shut down the economy, killed jobs, and then had the audacity to refer to it as the "Trump recession."

Disgusting.

"Why doesn't the left just give the right everything they want"

Meanwhile they put their own plan, and a compromise plan through the House and McConnell won't let either of them see the Senate floor at all. Man literally brags about how many bills die at his desk but yeah just keep blaming the Dems for not giving the GOP everything they want while paring back much-needed aid for state governments and unemployment benefits

what's in it that they want other than helping people and the economy?

if republicans are very bad and don't wanna do the right thing so why not just take the 1.8t democrats CAN get and then fight for more afterwards?

but that's not what's going on.

the left took the pandemic seriously and locked things down

the right, decidedly did not, mainly because their main man kept calling it a hoax for months, tried to play favoritism with medical supplies, tried to downplay it at every chance he was given, did not mandate any orders that would actually help anyone, and then refused to take responsibility for what he did.

then he got it himself, months later, along with the rest of his party, and still refuses to take it seriously.

meanwhile red states got hit extremely hard, businesses shut down because of no help from anyone. the relief bills that was passed were taken advantage of by the very same people who screamed that it wasn't needed, but they sure did like taking advantage of it and taking away help for smaller businesses.

even further meanwhile, when the president did test positive for covid, he tweeted that a relief bill must be passed, and then days later when he mysteriously recovered, told his side to stop any and all talks of it...and then went back on that statement a few more days later and said one needed to be passed again. all the while mitch mcconnell has several house approved bills on his desk that've sat there for months.

remember, over 200,000 has died now, and the reason stems directly from trumps administration.

not to mention that, even before the pandemic arrived, unemployment was at an all time high that has now skyrocketed, the economy was already on a downward trend for many months before as well, not up like the administration would try and have you believe. relations with allied nations was at an all time low, it still is, relations with non-allied nations remains unchanged, despite this administrations repeated kowtowing to both china and russia.

but sure, none of this was trump or his administrations fault.

despire them being the direct cause of everything.
