BREAKING: Senate Blocks Attempt To Pass $2,000 Stimulus Checks

Senate Republicans have blocked an attempt to increase direct stimulus payments from $600 to $2,000, after the Democrat-led House of Representatives approved a bill to do so, with the support of President Trump.

A motion by Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer for an up-or-down vote on the bill which passed 275-134 in the House was blocked by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.

McConnell noted that Trump’s statements that called for larger checks, new curbs on large tech companies, and an investigation into the November election, saying they would be dealt with in the Senate.

“Those are the three important subjects the President has linked together,” McConnell said. “This week the Senate will begin a process to bring these three priorities into focus.

    Elaine Chao, married to crooked Mitch McConnell has been up to no good too. She is now under investigation to benefit herself or her family’s shipping company. Guess where Chao’s family’s shipped in and out most of their materials to?

    That’s right, China! Another damn crooked family in bed with China. McConnell and Chao aren’t a surprise. No wonder her husband, Mitch McConnell is so eager to get Biden installed into office.

    The House Oversight Committee said Monday it is investigating whether Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao acted improperly to benefit herself or her family’s shipping company.

    Two Democratic leaders sent Chao a letter asking her to turn over documents and communications related to the New York-based company, Foremost Group. Chao’s father and sisters own the company, which transports material to and from China.

    “Federal regulations prohibit federal employees from using their public offices for ‘the private gain of friends, relatives or persons with whom the employee is affiliated in a non-governmental capacity,’ ” the lawmakers wrote in a seven-page letter to Chao.

    The New York Times and Politico have reported that Chao may have used her Cabinet position to benefit the company and increase its influence and status with the Chinese government. China has extended hundreds of millions of dollars in low-interest loans to the company for the purchase of foreign-flagged ships.

    Hi wife is Elaine Chao. Been in cabinet positions since the 90’s. Her father owns a huge shipping company with CCP connections. I bet they’re getting thousands of containers of pork fried rice. McConnell is on the take. Can’t hide it anymore. Wifey is being investigated. Chow for now.

    So there are hundreds of billions for businesses many of which were unaffected by covid and even those that were affected by a mere 25 percent decrease in revenue in one quarter of 2020 they will receive 100 percent of their payroll for 10 weeks besides their first ppp which should have made up that loss. It would have been easy to craft the law in a way that ppp merely replaced loss revenue. Yet they didnt. However when it comes to citizens who will eventually have to bankroll all this debt there is suddenly no money. Maybe its because they have no lobby. Ps interesting how “conservative” business owners have no issue with ppp handouts.
