Expect senators to get of town quickly after today’s vote. The Senate is likely to adjourn until at least April 20, per senators.

This basically means they’re adding next week as a recess in addition to two-week recess on the books

It‘s unclear if the recess will be extended.

Damn get these guys a raise too

U.S. HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES – $25 MILLION
SALARIES AND EXPENSES – $25 million. Funding supports the House’s capability to telework,
including for purchase of equipment and improvements to the network. Funding is also provided for the
reimbursement costs for the staff of the House Child Care Center and covers costs for the House restaurant

how much of that 25 mil do you think would go to the staff of the child care/restaurant services? probably a paltry amount

'funding for the house's capability to telework'. these mutherfuckers already had computers, internet connections, and phones prior to this. this is fcking bullshit

In their defense, if purchasing contracts are as stupid as I think, they are probably forced to pay $25,000 for a shitty Walmart cat 5 cable because they only have 1 approved source.

https://apps.npr.org/documents/document.html?id=6817441-House-Democrats-Counterproposal-For-Stimulus

The Coronavirus relief bill includes:

$25 million for additional salary for the House of Representatives
$300 million for International Disaster Assistance
$100 million to NASA
$300 million to Endowment for the Arts
$300 million to Endowment for the Humanities
$500 million to museums and libraries
$75 million to NPR and CBS
$35 million to JFK Center for performing arts
$300 million for migrant and refugee assistance
$90 million for the Peace Corp
$200 million for fuel research
$20 billion to USPS

-requiring early voting
-same day voter registration
-online voter registration
-no Id required to vote
-requiring airlines to fully offset carbon emissions
-airlines required to disclose greenhouse gas emissions


I got tired and stopped reading.

Obviously this is all integral to getting people that are out of work money for food and rent and the hospitals the supplies they need.

Is that real?

It seems like one of those nonsensical trolling jbos and I genuinely can't tell



I also find it hysterical that a huge deal was made of ensuring no money goes to any of Trumps businesses because it's a conflict of interest. But giving themselves an extra 25 million bonus, totally cool

This is the House Counterproposal from Pelosi, not the actual bill the Senate passed.

From what I can gather the Dem’s Coronavirus relief bill includes “$25 million for additional salary for the House of Representatives”
Wherever you gathered this from, stop going there

It was pretty hard to keep track of what went into the bill and why it took so long to write/pass, especially when it contains so many extraneous things to actual Coronavirus supplies/relief.  Competent countries governments got this stuff done weeks ago, because they were focused on actually helping their citizens instead of playing partisan politics.

This makes me think the bill may actually have some redeeming qualities:

Can’t believe the dems unanimously passed this smh

"Reporter" from OANN asks softball question to Trump, gets called on again later in the presser and mistakenly asks the same exact question because she is a plant and a dumbass.
