I disagree. But what do you say to the workers of those companies who would be affected? Sorry shouldn't have worked for a company Trump or any of the senators have stakes in? Get real. The point of the bill is to help those workers, including people who work for Trump.
The workers effected will get a check and more generous unemployment benefits just like every other worker. The business funds go directly to the bottom-line of the businesses. You can argue that none of it should be in there. But disallowing those who wrote and signed the legislation from pocketing the money is the very least we can do.

We're going to bail out hotels and resorts that cater to the 1%? That'd be effed up, man. Section2 is for it though. Principles.
It's not about that. It's about making sure that the employees don't suffer. Of course.....Trump and the redumplicans are trying to strip away as many provisions as possible. They are all for handing the bailout money away in the shadows and allowing the companies to do what ever they please with it.

Yeah, I'm sorry, but I am not buying this. I draw the line at companies that don't service the population in general, but cater to the elite. We're bailing out 5 star resorts now? Where the hell does it stop then, if not there? When a 5 star resort fails in a normal economy, are we supposed to bail them out then? If not, why not? Same logic - lots of employees, etc.

No way.

The casinos in LV were some of the ones that were clamoring for businesses to be shut down before everyone else. In the weeks leading up to the NV governor shutting things down (a little less than 2 weeks ago Tuesday?), they were struggling mightily with occupancy numbers. Knowing they were going to get a handout.

I don't know what the answer is either, they deserve some support, but many businesses will get a lot more than is appropriate, which I think is what you're saying.

Meanwhile, the IG got fired last night, and nobody seems to care.

Huge corruption pile-up on 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

Yes! It's about time. That Swamp Douche is responsible for millions of dollars spent on the impeachment sham. You can make a case he contributed to the virus crisis by diverting attention to a perfectly fine phone call.

This would have been the biggest scandal of the Obama administration. Congressional hearings. Beeg popping a blood vesel in rage. It won't even be the biggest story of this afternoon in the Trump administration.
LOL!!

I have to admit that I have never enjoyed the absolute agony of so many progressive before. These next 4 years are going to be great.
From 4 years ago.
The mindset of Trumptards, brilliant.....

Where are Ivanka's emails?
She was using a private server just like Hillary
So was Jared. And several of them were using other things like What'sApp. That's where the real security issues are. Suddenly the Fellas don't care.
