GOP Leaders Back Stimulus Checks for Americans

Frank Grass from USA [Public domain]

GOP leaders have reportedly backed $600 stimulus checks for Americans.

According to The Daily Wire:

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) have reportedly informed the Trump administration that they support $600 stimulus checks for Americans in any new COVID-19 stimulus package.

McCarthy said he and McConnell backed the stimulus checks now included in the White House’s $916 billion compromise measure, Axios reported. The liberal political website said the inclusion of the checks was discussed Tuesday among McCarthy, McConnell, Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, and White House chief of staff Mark Meadows.

A bipartisan group of senators introduced last week called for $908 billion in COVID-19 relief, but that bill also did not include checks for Americans.

That bill would deliver another $160 billion to states and cities and $180 billion for unemployment insurance, two issues Democrats have pushed hard. The unemployment benefits would pay $300 per week for 18 weeks, retroactive to Dec. 1, which is half of what was included in the CARES Act passed in March.

McConnell originally opposed the stimulus checks for Americans.

Especially no extra just for being unemployed. Just pay the Regular unemployment of $350.00 per week not the $900.00. That’s more than most make working. Then if both parents. Claim unemployment they get $4800.00 to $6000.00 extra a month with less expenditure, no petroleum to buy, lower car insurance. Then Pensioners only got they’re standard pensions no extra for them, I guess they didn’t deserve it.

You are confused. Our bankrupt western socialist states have constitutions that mandate government employees be paid first, siphoning funds out of the states’ general fund. There is no money left to pay the private sector unemployment checks. There is a hotline to the White House for those private sector workers who cannot collect their unemployment checks. This unemployment insurance should never be managed by the state governments, but placed in a private insurance company.

Which private insurance companies write unemployment insurance policies?.
Is it like car insurance, mandatory?
Lots of government regulations?

“mandate government employees be paid first”
The military, cops and fireman come to mind.
Air traffic controllers too.

Those people are supposed to catch the Kung flu, and die off as they are not producers any longer, just consumers.

A single parent with two kids loses his $1,000 a week job due to Corvid.
His house and car payments, and their operating costs are $350 a week.
Should he sell the car and house and move the family into a motel room?
Motel rooms, even the ones by the hour day and week, are $350+ a week.

I think we need both, open the economy and help with the stimulus checks. The problem is that the Democrats want to also bail out the western states that have invested their employee’s pension funds in the Chinese communist stock market [now there’s an oxymoron] and continue to aid the CCP’s military buildup, equivalent to treason.

Stimulus checks are pure Communism.
Takes as to your needs.
Without doing nuthin.

China is not Communist.
Like Trump they believe that the best form of government is when one party has control of all the branches of government .

No politician or government worker layoffs. They close the entire country for almost a year, kill tens of thousands of businesses, destroy families, education and people are committing suicide…. What’s wrong with this picture? Nancy Pelosi admitted she played politics to hurt Trump by holding up stimulus (which hurt millions of Americans). Something drastic has to change. We need be sheep no more!
