Steve Mnuchin and the GOP are said to be open to talks on the Democrats' new $2.2trillion COVID package that includes a second round of $1,200 stimulus checks, $600 in extra unemployment and $225billion for schools. The scaled back, last ditch proposal represents a cutback from a $3.4 billion bill that passed the House in May, but remains well above what Senate Republicans had been willing to accept. Republicans have endorsed staying in the $650 billion to $1 trillion range. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi told her fellow Democrats Monday that the proposal will 'protect lives, livelihoods, and the life of our democracy over the coming months'.

The more that money is poured into the money pit called "schools", the lower test scores become.

Our family spent the last stimulus checks by sending $1,200 to the IRS and $1,200 to the State. The next stimulus should be put in a trust to offset the debt we have created for our children.

The reason unemployment and worker's comp is not 100% of a person's salary is to give them an incentive to return to work. Someone in this area was asked if they were happy to go back to work. The answer was "No. I have never made this much money before" I don't approve of families getting more per child either. One family I know has more checks going into their home than you can imagine.

Exactly why do schools need more money? We've already transferred millions of electronic devices (laptops, hotspots, etc.) into the hands of students and teachers that schools will probably never get back. I guess they need more money to buy all new devices when they can't return all those devices back to the schools once in-person indoctrination resumes. Schools get so much state and federal money, somebody riddle me why I still have to pay property taxes for my local schools?

Enough already! End this farce and let people go back to work. The country has enough donuffins, that won't work because the government subsidies everyone that's below the 'poverty' line. As for education, the 2 teachers unions have donated over $32,000,000 to the dems, so they have enough. It's like PP, the government gives them half a billion and they donate millions to the dems. Poster #15 is right.

Speaking on his show Monday night, the comedian who has turned his platform into a political forum, with jokes largely torching President Donald Trump, admitted Amy Coney Barrett’s confirmation to the last Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s seat “is inevitable, like death.”“We’ve had some fun with Donald Trump over the years, we’ve laughed, we’ve cried. We mostly cried. But every once in a while, you get a troubling reminder that he is the president,” Colbert began.

Okay, I know we should be expecting a somewhat functioning Joe Biden for tonight’s debate, but does this man have the stamina? It’s a 90-minute debate, and his team requested two breaks, one every 30 minutes, tonight. Why? Joe Biden has called a lid before 10 AM close to a dozen times in the past two weeks. You can’t run a country like this, Joe. And we all know this wasn’t over debate preparation; you admitted you hadn’t even started on September 23. No matter what happens, barring a stroke on the debate stage, Biden will be declared the winner, and for now, we should expect him

The White House is set to declassify a major trove of documents that include evidence showing Russian President Vladimir Putin was actually working against then-GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump, not ‘colluding’ with him as Democrats have long charged, a report said Tuesday. The declassification and its potential to flip the narrative — set for this week according to multiple sources who spoke to Just The News — would come four years after the Obama-era FBI launched a counterintelligence probe over claims that people within the Trump campaign were working with Moscow to manipulate the outcome in the GOP contender’s favor.

Chris Wallace, the moderator of the first presidential debate Tuesday night, insists he will try to remain “as invisible as possible.” That would certainly be a welcome change from his performance in the final 2016 debate between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton. A lot of Democrats no doubt assume Wallace will go too easy on the president simply because he hosts a talking-heads show for the “conservative” Fox News network. But Wallace is not an admirer of Trump. Nor is he above gotcha questions and phony “fact checks.” It was Wallace, you will probably recall, who pompously lectured Trump as follows during that last 2016 debate:

Is anyone really surprised that Donald Trump’s tax affairs are opaque? Or that he is not as rich as he claims? Is it really all that horrifying that he has for years claimed business losses in order to offset his significant income tax liability? Does it appall us that the Trump family used a Delaware-based consulting group to pay themselves? Of course not. The New York Times’s big Trump tax files splash on Sunday is therefore something of a flop. It is well-timed — an election is fast-approaching and the story might give Biden a good attack line in the big TV debate on Tuesday night.

“Two weeks to flatten curve.” Remember that? It was several months ago now. The deal elected officials struck with the American people was to trade lockdowns for hospital capacity. The fear in the early days of the COVID pandemic was that hospital capacity would be overwhelmed if we didn’t lock down, curb activity, and so forth. So we got “two weeks to flatten the curve.” New York City built a hospital into its Javits Convention Center. President Trump sent a Navy hospital ship to handle the expected caseload. None of that capacity was needed. Way back in June, CNN declared that New York had “flattened the curve.”
