That's not even a 1/8th of what the Democrat and Republican leadership forced through without consulting Congress and allowing a roll call vote. The headlines are extremely misleading. Several segments here will explain it.

Senate vote was unanimous so no roll call was necessary.

In the House a quorum of 216 congressmen blocked the rule change for a roll call and passed the bill by voice vote. Perfectly normal legislative procedures. Good on both Republican and Democrat congressional leadership in the House to bypass Massie's rogue behavior in a bipartisan manner!

Trump even tweeted of Massie's "third rate grandstanding": "He just wants the publicity. He can'stop it, only delay it, which is both dangerous & costly."

It is not good. MANY members of the House from both parties had problems with this package because of it's weighting that overwhelmingly favored large corporations and underweighting the needs of the people and small businesses. Pelosi pushed for a voice vote in the House so no Congress member's vote would be recorded.

There were lots of Republicans who felt the it underweighted the needs of regular folks? Can you define "lots"?

 It's like we're all auditing a 4 year long course in abnormal psychology.

Add 4 more years.

Think you will finish the class by then?

I'm counting on one of his more racist sycophants taking him out because they're worried he isn't destroying the democracy fast enough.

Bobby dropped his first song in 8 years today. Yeah, the voice is shot, but who cares? It's a jewel.

At the signing ceremony Trump said this:

"I want to thank Democrats and Republicans for coming together and putting America first,” Trump told reporters."

 

 

"President Trump on Friday declined to invite Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and other Democrats to the White House ceremony where he signed the historic $2 trillion coronavirus rescue package passed earlier in the day by the House, aides said.

The deal was approved during market times on Friday, and they reacted right. Expect some more of it on Monday

It's a good thing Congress provided for an Inspector General to keep an eye on the 500 billion dollar loan program. Not that Trump would ever try to hide information about the details of these loans... Oh wait a minute...

Trump Suggests He Can Gag Inspector General for Stimulus Bailout Program

In a signing statement, the president undermined a key safeguard Democrats had insisted upon as a condition of approving $500 billion in corporate relief in the $2 trillion law.

 When President Trump signed the $2 trillion economic stabilization package on Friday to respond to the coronavirus pandemic, he undercut a crucial safeguard that Democrats insisted upon as a condition of agreeing to include a $500 billion corporate bailout fund.

In a signing statement released hours after Mr. Trump signed the bill in a televised ceremony in the Oval Office, the president suggested he had the power to decide what information a newly created inspector general intended to monitor the fund could share with Congress.

Monday will be up, then we will have the ups and downs, over the next month or so, some bigger ups and some bigger down, by this time next year will be back to where we were 20 February, my left one tells me that.

 

It's made of crystal, either way, its a good time to buy, opportunities like this don't come often.
