I'm ok with this. Can't give the GOP an inch here.


Fine Print of Stimulus Bill Contains Special Deals for Industries






"Democrats proudly announced that they had won agreement on language to block President Trump, other government officials and their families from receiving a*sistance from a $500 billion fund to be administered by the Treasury Department.

But it turns out that Mr. Trump’s companies would not be barred from benefiting from other elements of the bill intended to help broad swaths of American business.

For example, certain hotel owners, even those employing thousands of people, will be eligible for small-business loans, a provision that could potentially benefit Mr. Trump’s company. The Trump Organization could also benefit from the $15 billion change to the tax code won by restaurants and retailers.

"from the $454 billion general purpose fund for businesses and state and local governments to the $50 billion earmarked for airlines and $8 billion for air cargo carriers.

The deal specifically sets aside $17 billion for “businesses critical to maintaining national security” — a category seen as intended at least partly for Boeing, the troubled aircraft manufacturer and Pentagon contractor, whose name appears nowhere in the bill.

We’ll be helping Boeing,” Mr. Trump said Tuesday evening. “We’ll be helping the airlines, the cruise lines.”

"Many of these special-interest provisions would be impossible for a casual reader of the legislation to identify. They are written in highly technical language that often does not even mention by name the industry that is supposed to benefit.

"That means loans from the federal government worth up to 2.5 times the firm’s monthly payroll that will not have to be repaid if the hotel company uses them to keep paying employees during any coronavirus shutdowns.

The provision could benefit the Trump Organization, which operates a relatively small chain, with six hotels in the United States in cities including New York, Washington and Chicago. Several Trump hotels are members of the trade a*sociation. Last year Mr. Trump reported annual revenues in 2018 of at least $434.9 million from all of his holdings, including many that are not hotels.


Representatives of the Trump Organization did not respond to a question on Wednesday about the provision."

"Provisions sought by the nation’s smaller banks, a powerful constituency, were also included in the bill. One change would allow those banks — which represent 95 percent of all the banks in the United States — to have lower requirements for capital reserves, the buffer that financial institutions are required to keep on hand to ensure they remain solvent if they run into trouble.....

The proposal drew immediate opposition from some analysts, who said it would allow too much risk.

2007 all over again. Joy.

"A provision in the bill would allow all colleges to retain federal funds allocated to help educate qualifying students, even if the students in question dropped out because of coronavirus-related emergencies. While the provision applies to all colleges, critics of for-profit colleges contend that, because those schools tend to have higher dropout rates, they would be able to retain more of the money they collect via federal loans to their students than would traditional nonprofit colleges.

This sh*t is full of poison pills. If Bernie wants to hold it up I'm for it.





General Strike and civil unrest are looking more and more likely.

They both holding up sh*t that is minor compared to the financial a*sistance that companies and individuals need.
Bernie isn't holding anything up. Those 3 GOP Senators are. He's f*ghting for everyone in the general population that's affected by this. How on Earth could you have a problem with that?

It shows which side the GOP is on. I don't like the democrats but for those who say they're both the same this shows how false that statement is.
Jerry Nadler wanted 4 billion dollars for some stupid art in nyc and Nancy was trying climate change

Bernie you fu*king bum stop delaying sh*t and give them their money 1200 is more than some of these people’s monthly check
Damn you really are lifeless:

200+ thread on you ducking to do an IG live.
Provide 0 evidence to contradict what was presented wasn't you.
Sidestepped and outright ignored the claims of having multiple dummy accounts on the off chance you get banned.

Like a "normal" person would just go rogue for a week and hop on a dummy account but you care so much about your presumed reputation here that you'd rather ignore that ever happened and continue using the same account.

Save the sassy retort cause I'm not gonna go tete a tete with you but you're a fu*kin a loser, my guy

Typical republican bullsh*t.

They more worried about punishing imaginary welfare queens than actually helping people in need.

I can't deal with these idiots

bernie gained attention blocking cuts to programs (did so in 2010 in a 8hr filibuster) like unemployment insurance. he's been known for this before his presidential runs.
