Typical GOP. Put a poison pill in a package, pretend that the House hasn't had a bill passed for months that they refused to consider, and get ready to blame the Democrats. Not this time.

Americans already blame Trump and the GOP for their epic failure. That will only get worse every day people who cannot put food on their table have to listen to some Republican lecture them.

Senate Republicans, White House seek to reduce weekly unemployment benefit from $600 to $200 -

Thanks for nothing, GOP. I guess kids being able to eat and live indoors is too much to ask.



@SteveRogers @TonyStark
Well, they nailed me! The GOP has exposed my grand plan of staying at home and using the extra $600 to go on a shopping spree of one’s wildest dreams that includes glorious rewards like paying utilities, my mortgage, and putting food on the table.

Vote them OUT.

@Spiderman @SteveRogers @TonyStark Republicans don't care for regular people doing things like having a home or food or utilities.

@NickFury Three months until the election and five until we have a new Congress is too long to wait for relief for so many out of work.

But 99 days and they will be lame ducks.

The 117th Congress will pass real relief for people and President Biden will sign it into law. Any Senators thinking they want to filibuster need to think long and hard about if they want to be golfing full time come January 2023.

@NickFury @Spiderman @SteveRogers @TonyStark And they detest homeless people too... I suppose all those tents and shopping carts are just so unsightly and inconvenient for them.

It helped me pay my bills. I got a new job at a hospital that pays less than my job at the casino I work at. I'd rather go back to my better paying job. I don't think our governor will reopen it till next year.

I called today to urge my representatives to extend the $600.

I hope it happens. It's necessary.
