  1. These politicians are literally holding the whole country economy and life of small people in jeopardy.. While these millionaire have their vacations. They should are resign, they don't serve, they are all with vested interest.

  4. Stoping giving money to other countries, start taking care of the tax payers. How about we don’t pay any more taxes

  5. The Republicans are not worried about their constituents

  6. They blocked this from playing

  7. Biden and amendment 14👍🏽

  8. Considering the consequences of Biden's reckless inflationary print-and-spend policy, I don't think it's unreasonable to ask him to stop. He's basically paying to buy the deadbeat votes. If ,someone is able-bodied, why shouldn't they work? And, if someone takes out a college loan, why shouldn't they pay it back? No brainer, right?

  9. On tomorrows episode, kev is over heard asking so is that june5 of this year ? Most of the 222 replied, I hope so

  10. They shouldn’t be able to take a break until they get the job people pay them to do!
    Remember this Vote Blue💙💙

  11. SNAP benefits cuts!!!! From the party that calls itself "pro-life"😮

  12. Republicans are anti-business and anti-labor.

  13. Yellen lied, surprise surprise

  14. Don't f*** with China June 1st they want their 1 trillion dollars by midnight😅😅😅

  15. Janet Yellen has no idea what she is talking about, she has been involved with the treasury department under several administrations and there has been spending problems under each and every one of them.

  16. 🤣😂🤣🇺🇸👍👏👏👏

  17. The most worthless president ever. This administration is a threat to this country.. time we stop paying taxes

  18. We need to vote out these politicians on both sides you don't get vacation and we are struggling 😡 i hope middle/poor class see that their party doesn't care if they can pay rent or buy milk for your children and democrat's are weak they DON'T FIGHT FOR US hard enough….

  19. Why do America lawmakers terrorizes it's citizens every year with this chicken debt ceiling

  20. Well like Biden press secretary said. He has no intention of negotiating. Biden own fault.

  21. The Democratic and Republican partys are both corrupt, liers and are only worried about their own wallet's

  22. Unbelievable that this happens every time! Power mad politicians have forgotten who they serve. Appalling & disgusting. Dishonorable.

  23. We are doomed. Send me all your money if you want redemption.

  24. So now we can push back when the gov runs out of money. Got it.

  25. Millions of job losses..?? Where who..stop with the lies..

  26. There should be a work requirement for food stamps. Medicaid is different. Some people can't work because of a medical condition. They may first need to take care of that to make them able to work.
    Also, health care is often a lot more expensive than food. With food you can buy cheaper alternatives. Health care doesn't usually work like that.

  27. Its all about getting what they want that has nothing to do with national spending.

  28. Federal employees would go on vacation then get the so called backpay

  29. This is what's called MAKING UP THE RULES AS WE GO ALONG!
    Laws are fake and made up

  30. They're all crooks. And We the People elected them. We get what we deserve.

  31. Looks like the YellenDems BS narrative has nothing behind it but gas. Keep pumping the drama to keep the rubber money flowing, so we can absolutely and totally sink the country in a few years. “ you can’t stop us from sawing our own legs off And everybody else’s!” Hilarious little echo chamber

  32. 🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬😶‍🌫️😶‍🌫️😶‍🌫️😶‍🌫️

  33. Isn’t this the same treasury department head that said inflation was transitory? Like I’m gonna believe the government

  34. They don't deserve to go on vacation, with the future of this country and world at stake. How about lowering their pay? They live in fancy homes, at our expense

  35. Come on people….stop the negative responses….the government isn't at fault because you all were sleeping and voting for them… it's YOU. This isn't something new… foundation was build the day they killed Jesus.. Jesus said no business in god's house….look what happened.

  36. its all a smokescreen and an excuse to cut social security and medicare while they hand trillions to defense companies so they can enrich their shareholders

  37. Biden and dems to dumb to care

  38. No deal, let it default, the debt will ever be this low again!!

  39. I'm surprised that the date changed because this means veterans, social security, and SNAP beneficiaries won't be left struggling to pay bills and buy groceries. That takes a smidgen out of the apprehension they are experiencing.

  40. This is abuse toward the elderly that’s all they have to live on.congress is awful . If we do not get social security then they should not get pay either
