Trump signs Coronavirus relief and omnibus funding bill

MAR-A-LAGO, FLORIDA – Donald Trump on Sunday signed into law a Coronavirus relief and omnibus funding bill that was handed to him days ago.

The White House press secretary confirmed that on Sunday, December 27, 2020, the President signed into law: H.R. 133, an Act making consolidated appropriations for the fiscal year ending September 30, 2021, providing coronavirus emergency response and relief, and for other purposes.

The bill Trump signed is loaded with billions of dollars for foreign nations, including funding Trump had requested in his own budget he submitted earlier in 2020. Examples include over a billion dollars for Egypt’s military and Israel. Trump also sought over $40 million for the Kennedy Center.   Both Democrats and Republicans in the House and Senate supported this bill, as it had been passed in Congress early last week.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi issued this statement after the President signed the bipartisan coronavirus relief and omnibus funding bill:

“The signing of the bipartisan, bicameral coronavirus relief legislation is welcome news for the fourteen million Americans who just lost the lifeline of unemployment benefits on Christmas Weekend, and for the millions more struggling to stay afloat during this historic pandemic and economic crisis.

“This relief legislation is a down payment on what is needed to crush the virus, put money in the pockets of the American people and honor our heroes – our health care workers, first responders, transit and sanitation workers and teachers.  We need to ensure robust support for state and local government to distribute and administer a vaccine, keep workers employed and prevent devastating service cuts – and we must do so as soon as possible.

“Now, the President must immediately call on Congressional Republicans to end their obstruction and to join him and Democrats in support of our stand-alone legislation to increase direct payment checks to $2,000, which will be brought to the Floor tomorrow.  Every Republican vote against this bill is a vote to deny the financial hardship that families face and to deny the American people the relief they need.”

The bill will give Americans a $600 stimulus check, unemployment extensions and other remedies for the ongoing pandemic crisis.

    You are so full of sh*t. Just saw a meme where it said ’27 Penn lawmakers urge GOP leaders to dispute electoral votes’. Sounds like a lot uh? It is just over 10% of all Penn lawmakers. So 90% of them don’t buy into the election fraud bs but that 10%, them guys is smaarrrtt.

      You are like the Wizard in the famous movie. ‘Nothing to see behind this curtain’ as we are literally watching the evidence of mass voter fraud occurring. Wake up sheep!!!! Just because CNN or Huffpo won’t report on it, doesn’t mean it didn’t happen. There is video evidence! Individuals were able to successfully hack into dominion machines in Georgia just last week to both send and receive data!! Data scientists are telling you what transpired the night of November 5 is mathematically impossible!!! How much more evidence do you need, sheep?!?!?

        When 90% of lawmakers, 98% of judges, 30% of Republicans and 100% of non-Trump supporters agree there was no widespread voter fraud, I think that is pretty telling.

        Figures seem to be pretty accurate. Trump’s court record on proving this ‘fraud’ is 1-58. Quinnepac says 30% of Republicans polled think he is blowing smoke, the % of lawmakers will be shown on Wednesday and anyone with a modicum of intelligent wouldn’t support the criminal in the WH and they don’t. You are in the minority and you lost. Put on your big boy pants and act like an adult.

      4 years ago, was there mass usage of mail-in ballots? You have to know how easy it is to fake a mail in ballot, right? Imagine if a unscrupulous individual just machine printed hundreds of thousands of the mail-in ballots for their candidate and fed them into counting machines late at night after everyone was ordered to go home (this is exactly what is shown on security footage in Georgia, BTW).

    Money, money, money. Mitchy boi is in a pickle. If he would’ve sent out a check August, did totally online school till January 2021, AND got Covid Kim in Iowa to issue a MASK mandate way back when, we would not be in this mess. Best play for Mitch would be to add the $1400 to the $600 for $2000 then that will be it for checks. But you drop a measly $600 now it will GAUREENTEE a big fat check for February! He’s dumb. Front man for greedy people. Pay a little now, save a lot later. Oh yeah, it’s a big slam dunk. Democrats will take the senate by there big win in Georgia! Crystal ball confirms. Pass the $2000 and win Mitch! Or lose the senate, put your mask on, and go set down Mitchy boi.

          Hey dummy, infection rates have no statistical correlation between states with mask mandates and states without. Licensed medical professionals have known for sometime that children do not shed covid-19 virus so the safest place for them is in school. Science!

            You’re half correct, dummy, but still far from factual. The reason mask mandates don’t work is because idiots still refuse to wear masks and keep spreading the virus. Our mask “mandate” was a complete joke, because there was no fines to hit the idiots wallets. Far too many dumbasses walking around bare-faced and still spreading illnesses.

    There should be no foreign aid in a relief stimulus package for the American People, the only reason Is the politicians are getting kick backs and families made up jobs Like Biden. I would rather have these bills VETOED!!!

    The Left is MORONIC…
    Nearly a TRILLION dollars is included in the “too much money to special interests, cultural projects, and foreign aid.”
    He has also said its one-time $600 stimulus checks to millions of struggling Americans were too small — a view supported by Democrats, who have long-argued for a larger stimulus package…blah, blah, blah…just last week the Leftist Pelosi called the $600 ” significant.” Dems mouths open and nothing but lies spew out. Nancy needs to be dragged out of DC by her hair…hooked up to a new Ford Bronco.

      And the Trump signed the bill anyway. I would think a strong, decisive, business genius would not only veto such a horrible bill but would have been involved in the negotiations that brought the bill to his desk? But that was not the case, the man was gone tweeting and golfing, those facts cannot be denied.

    If ALL the money in the Stimulus Bill actually went back to the American people in check form, it would have been around $14,000 for each person and $28,000 for a family.
    Think about that for a minute. Each tax paying American could have received $14,000 but instead are getting $600. The American Tax payer is paying for the other $13,400 to go to special interests.
    When do “We the People” take back our government and stop the madness?

    The $600 is just interest on the coming fat coronie checks. It boils down to Georgia. What will the people do? It will be and is being watched for any trickery during the election. `Ole Joe gets Georgia to take the senate then expect a big fat check. Maybe two because the vaccine is really just in limbo now. Come spring the local and state governments will need big help. Or what? Let the crooks on wally street lie and deceive to obtain more funds when there goose is already cooked. China is #1 economic power now. So, get greedy and cheat? These flunkies have been grasping at straws for quite some time. That bitcoin is a trap. Either way you got excess money it’s going to be taken or gone. Poof! Like the credit score it’s just a sham. Part of their nickel and dime philosophy. No, a BIG FAT CHECK is coming after the first of the year. Try and stop it cheaters. You cheat. You lose. Do the right thing.
