  1. Except just like first round of checks I won’t get this one either. Thanks for forgetting about me US Government!! I fucking hate you!!!!

  2. amazing, americans will be getting $600 while egypt gets A BILLION DOLLARS, gotta love it when stimulus packages not only give money to foreign countries but they get way more than what we do

  3. Once the Dems are in charge, we won’t have to get in line behind the rich when it comes to taking care of the American people.

  4. While the GOP prevented adequate financial relief to working families, they did get:

    -$120 billion tax break for business owners in the 1%
    -$6.3 billion tax break for a 3-martini lunch
    -$4.2 billion tax break for offshore tax scams
    -$2 billion for the space force

    Pathetic.

  5. final stimulus package: each adult and child will get one (1) pair of socks, some loose AAA batteries from 2002, three hershey’s kisses that melted and then hardened again, and a crumpled up dollar bill. the myPillow guy will get four yachts and a ping pong table made of pure gold

  6. The United States is the ghetto and embarrassing. There’s nothing patriotic about being cheap with your people. It’s a disappointment to say the least.

  7. We shouldn’t be sending American taxpayer dollars over to foreign countries for aid while the American people get crumbs that will not relieve them of all they have lost due to these senseless lockdowns!
