Breaking Overnight: Senate Reaches Deal for Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act…

With caution applied, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer announced around 2:00am ET a deal had been reached for the nearly $2 trillion Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES) bill.

The final language for “HR.748” (stripped and newly assembled) will take place today.  Looks like the senate is using an old bill, previously passed by the House, so the House can deem and pass, without formally reconvening. There are ten republican amendments. Speaking from the floor, both McConnell and Schumer made remarks describing the bill.

Prompted, just hit play:

.

The senate is adjourned until Noon today (Wednesday).

    I read elsewhere that the bill has been delayed again, this time by Republicans who say the draft has some major errors in it that need to be fixed.
    The corporations don’t need any bailing-out. Let free market capitalism sort it out. If the government is going to gather-up taxpayer money and then start handing it out again, hand it back to the people you took it from in the first place! To hell with the champagne-slugging elitist hogs of this country. Those people are parasites and nothing more. Let them sort out their poor investment choices without any of MY money.

      The issue seems to be that our dear Dimms have allotted more recovery money than people’s existing wages are, which would be incentive for their employers to lay them off. Would completey screw UP the economy.

      I guess we’ll find out later.

      Per John Cardillo:
      Kennedy Center: $25MM
      National Endowment for Humanities: $75MM
      Migration & Refugee Assistance: $350MM

      SHUT THIS DOWN!!!!
      Employees CAN lay-off employees for 16 wks and have them pd up to $1200/wk or MORE and be better than paying them to work.

      THIS IS WHY GOVT IS A FRAUD……..Why we couldn’t get TAX RELIEF, b/c then CONGRESS COULDN’T SPEND THE $$$$$$$. Tax Relief: WE SPEND
      THIS BILL: GOVT SPENDS….

        Methinks I could bid the demolition of the Kennedy Center less “The Reach” campus (recently completed for $250M) and promenade for less than the allocated $25M reno barring unforeseen asbestos abatement surprise$ as the thing was built late ’60’s. I can open demo ingress beginning with the 2nd floor “Chinese Lounge”. Price contingent upon what materials are retained such as chandeliers, wood, marble, fixtures, copper, HVAC, etc.

        And it is going to pass. PDJT is going to be seen as a decisive leader when the country needed it. And he will win the election in November no matter who they nominate or draft.

        We are watching a great leader and executive getting done the best possible, rather than failing to get done the perfect impossible.

        Thank you, PDJT! Best president EVER!

        Sorry to disagree Mnuchin is a money man. Not a policy man… I believe Meadows is a good man but I would like to see this bill fully exposed so we can all see it before it is voted on.

        PDT was blindsighted by the deep state… on the death curve… I’m positive they will try again.

        We didn’t have a supermajority so there had to be give and take. Many hourly wage workers are suffering and need financial help. The fact that the Democrats knew they could hold everything up and stuff the bill with an abundance of BS pork is on them. I do hope and pray, however, that all pork (which would include everything that is not a direct payment to American citizens, American businesses in order to employ American citizens, or medical equipment and PPEs for medical personnel and first responders) is pork and should be labeled as PORK and should be noted as to who insisted that it be included in the bill!

    If Cuomo, the self serving governor of the Empire State, says that this senate bill “would be terrible for New York” then rest assured it would be good for America. The Senate needs to quit pissyfooting around with this critical piece of legislation and vote it back to Pelosi’s crooked House of Representatives for their approval.

    The biggest threat to the Democrats, deep state and rinos is TIME.

    In three to four days the results of the NY trial program of Chloroquine and z-pack will be in..

    At that point everyone goes back to work and impacted worker relief can be done in a logical thoughtful non corrupt manner..

    This bill needs to be slowed down… checks will not flow before next Monday…the stock market will not collapse any more for three days…

    SLOW THIS DOWN… READ THE BILL… ANALYSE ITS LOG TERM EFFECT… WAIT TILL NEXT MONDAY TO SEE IF IT REALY THAT URGENT.

        How can we all go on tolerating a purposeful invasion of our country, and allow anyone to get by with passing it off as humanitarian/refugee relief? Acquiescing to the political correctness of “inclusion/all cultures are equal’ extortion is surrender to the malign forces at war with the Republic. More to the point, it is suicide by inertia.

        Trump is a great leader, but he needs to create a task force to organize the disparate conservative groups around the country into a cohesive defensive force. The RNC, which should have been doing this job, is useless. There are many smart, dedicated patriot groups struggling to get the support and funds needed to have a significant impact. How do we get the Presiden’ts ear on this?

    Give 10-15 min of remarks. Then show, live on tv, the items that are directly related to CV relief. Then on another list show every single item along with page number and title that is not related to CV relief. Put it out there and strip every Dem of their clothes on National tv.

      If the Dems get ballot harvesting, Republicans won’t have to bother to cast ballots, because it will be a sure thing that the votes will be cancelled out by Democrat voter fraud. Voter fraud is Democrat SOP, but why make it any easier for them than it already is. How long can we go on being the abused dog of the Lefty/Communists? We are stupidly carrying on as if nothing is wrong, while we can clearly see the Republic dying a slow. agonizing death.

    The $600 per week unemployment payment ($15/hour) on top of any existing unemployment benefits for the next four months is a great way to compensate all of the campaign workers that Mike Bloomberg stiffed, allowing them to volunteer for another Democrat campaign on the cheap.
