House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., said on Thursday that next week she will force lawmakers to take a recorded vote on $2,000 stimulus checks for Americans after President Trump demanded such checks and House Republicans blocked Democrats from bringing a unanimous consent request to make that happen.
At the same time, Democrats blocked the GOP from bringing a unanimous consent request aimed at addressing the other part of Trump’s twofold grievances about the massive coronavirus stimulus and government funding package lawmakers sent to his desk – foreign aid.

Democrats appear to be suffering from selective hearing. They've conveniently ignored @realDonaldTrump's call to reexamine tax dollars wasted overseas while so many Americans are struggling at home.
Republicans will act to put America first.

Yep, pork in the bill, going overseas, is more important than helping the American people. Keeping the economy shut down and destroying the American people’s lives, is a good thing, isn’t it liberals?
These days, helping EVERYONE else in the world, BEFORE AMERICANS who pay those taxes, seems to be standard bloody practice..
Yep, knew that would happen. Trump will not sign it and they aren’t going to remove the pork so that he can. I suspect they’ll either override his veto or they will just hold off until Biden is sworn in, he’ll get the relief credit and the Dems get their pork.
Real Americans don’t want to sell out our county, for any amount of cash. the dems have their whole wish list in this bill. Don’t fall for it!
But that’s the thing.. WE HAVE NO REAL americans in congress.. Not anymore.
Government should never, never, never get in the business of acting as a charity. Government is extremely ineffective at “helping people” and extremely expensive in the (failing) effort.
Instead, the churches should help people. Small problems should be solved with YOU contributing the funds to YOUR church and YOU working to deliver the help; one on one. Larger problems should be solved with YOUR church acting in coordination with other churches to solve the problem and YOU should do all that YOU can to make it happen.
No problem should be too small to escape help from a church and no problem is unsolvable, with the aid of our God, by a group of churches.
Again, “government help” is a misnomer.
