  1. The Republicans in senate are just blocking progress. We don't need them to quibble – just do your job and serve the people. Republicans act as if they get their own party policies or the people get nothing. OR – they do get their party policies and the people still get nothing. Chuck them out. Change the balance of the senate.

The shortened hours caused us to lose the house both cars our jobs bankruptcy divorce so Medicaid would pay for the baby. She went to mom I was homeless. TRUMP got me a job insurance a car remarried to my wife a mortgage on a house. Then Dr Anthony Fauci paid Wuhan Chinese Military Bioweapons lab to INVENT and spread covid to make vaccine money. In 2017 Dr Fauci threatened/promised Trump would face PLANNED DEMIC. After WEF at Davos ordered release the virus.

  9. There should be an independent agency to determine which politicians should not get paid due to what they have been doing for Americans to suffer so much, this will make them work instead of playing their games!

  27. I don't think that what's understood right now is what's coming. It won't be to much longer that the food is going to run out. Farmers aren't farming. The idiots who got elected aren't qualified to run the country. All they're doing is waiting for the lobbyist to show up with the briefcase full of cash or the next insider trading tip to come in. It doesn't affect them so why would they care about you.

  28. Nobody but Trump wants the government to shut down. Trump himself would be very happy with the chaos.

  34. The federal government needs to do two things IMMEDIATELY: 1) Increase the number of residency "slots" available each year by 25% or even 50% percent, and 2) ease the restrictions on foreign medical workers (nurses and doctors, especially) seeking work visas and immigration visas. We have a severe shortage of skilled medical personnel in this country, and doctors and nurses do not receive some magical, anti-corona virus amulet to protect them from getting sick themselves. If they are exposed to patients infected with the corona virus, they are potentially at risk of getting it themselves. And yet, the Trump administration has placed severe limits on work visas and immigration visas, and the very people we need right now are barred from entering the US. And even for those lucky few granted visas, state licensing rules are stacked against foreign-born and foreign-educated medical professionals making it very difficult for them to be licensed to work. There are tens of thousands of qualified medical doctors and nurses from Mexico, India, Central America, and various Middle Eastern countries are washing dishes and driving for Uber because they can't get a license to practice medicine or nursing. This is stupid beyond belief. Also, going back to the first point, Congress authorizes (and pays for) 115,000 residency "slots" each year, and yet this falls woefully short of the need for trained MD's in this country. Thousands of qualified medical school graduates holding valid state licenses to practice medicine cannot practice because almost all hospitals require residencies before a doctor is allowed "hospital privileges," effectively barring them from the practice of medicine. Even remedial level economics should tell you that artificially limiting the supply of a necessary commodity is going to result in an increase in the price for that commodity. And people then wonder why their medical bills (and health insurance) are so high. Notify your elected representatives in Washington that they need to change these two things!!

  35. The news are from 1995, but man that TV set (0:23) is from the 80's!! 😀 😀 😀

  36. Shut it down until they grow up.

  37. Diaper King Fat Donnie never lied. He said that he would make America Great Again. That's true. Greater in worldwide Covid19 cases and deaths, greater in Federal Deficit, greater in Disgrace, greater in Hate, greater in Divide. I am astonished with his promises.

  38. We need to follow what California is doing.. PA step up your numbers are exceeding the healthcare capacity now!
