Don't worry. It is plain that republican's concern for life ends at birth. This bill was handed off last night from the Senate. Not enough time for more than a vote. But, Pelosi pulled it off!

Pelosi should have done right before now, just once I would like to see a clean bill go through without special interest riders tacked on all along the way and Republicans care about people well beyond birth, it's democrats that only care if there's something in it for them.

That's not right. Republicans do care about people. It's just a different demographic than Democrats. Republicans care about wealthy donors and lobbyists. That was obvious from McConnell's switching the agreed to language of the bill as negotiated between the parties. Bait and switch Mitch. :LOL:

You have to be kidding, democrats have been bought and danced like puppets on a string for Bloomturd in plain view just recently and democrats are influenced by lobbyist, special interest and big money as much if not more than anyone, they just pretend to care about the poor because they need their votes, the key word is " pretend " because the rich pull all strings in D.C.
Republicans promote policy that works in favor of freedom and capitalism is freedom, democrats promote socialism not to help people but to control them, they only " pretend " to want to help.

I don't understand. China has more people than the U.S. and the U.S. had more notice this was coming. It's been in China much longer than the U.S. I am also pretty sure china is much more densely populated than the U.S. So why does the U.S. have more cases than China? It makes no sense to me

EDIT: I don't want to get political here, I am just genuinely curious as to how China responded differently than the U.S. and why?

The US government also downplayed this until mid-March when it was then clear we were in serious trouble I believe!

Because China quarantined the city of a million where it broke out and locked it down tight, brutally tight and China processed the sick while people sat at home 24 hours a day until they were allowed out, but here we say stay home and people are down at walmart, parking lot packed, everyone talking about how much TP they stacked up and swapping germs.
China may not be out of the woods yet, they still have a lot of susceptible people and we will see what happens there next, this virus seems to travel fast, I read it travels with bacteria which may be why it stays viable on surfaces so long, but I only read that one place so far.

I'm not sure there is transparency in China, they always hide something we can see in the past.
but actually Europe and the United States are completely passive before Covid-19, in Vietnam, all the preparations have taken place since early January, while in the US, people have not yet envisioned the disaster will strike
I say from my point of view, really that Europe and America are doing this much worse than Asia, you can look at Korea, they have curbed at 10,000, and the United States right now, I think. will stop at 250000

Anyway, we can't interfere too much in the situation, can only protect ourselves, I hope everyone here is safe after the epidemic, I wish the United States will overcome it as soon as possible. , if the United States and Europe are affected, the whole world will be paralyzed

This reworked bill was delivered to Senate Democrats by the same Lobbyists who actually rewrote this bill. What you call socialism is Democrat's concern for working families and the desire that republicans don't take billions of dollars out for themselves. Prior to Democrats again trying to rework this bill for American families it left the oversight to Donald Trump, something few Americans would ever want to happen. Trump is also disallowed from receiving any of the $500 billion that republicans put into it for large corporations. Even though it was Nancy Pelosi who got this over the finish line in record time, she as well as no other Democrats are invited to the signing ceremony. I'm fine with that. Who wants to be seen with Donald Trump after the mismanagement of this infection early on?

BS paul. Pelosi tried to add everything from NEA funding to abortion funding which has nothing to do with this covid19 disaster or it's relief.
