    I found this interesting

    “Schumer added a provision to ban businesses owned by the president, vice president, members of Congress and the heads of federal executive departments from receiving loans or investments through the corporate liquidity program. The prohibition also applies to their children, spouses and in-laws.”

    I get it. It just sucks for the employees of those companies.

    He didn't divest, right? If he did, he wouldn't be an "owner."

    Trump? I was under the understanding that he had to. It’s his kids company now. Oddly, trump was asked a couple days ago in one of the briefings about “his” company and he answered the questions. It struck me as odd.

    If he doesn't officially own the companies then they should qualify.

    I think he does still own but just had to relinquish his leadership duties. that would explain the line of questioning from the press that I heard.

    This is far from a done deal. They are going to seek Unanimous consent in the house which requires all members to vote yes just one no vote could derail it. Amash is sending out signals that he may vote no and who knows what the radial left will do lead by the squad

    I know Pelosi had floated at one time all SS recipients receiving an extra couple hundred bucks a month for a certain period of time ?

    I wonder if that made it in.

    My Aunt just texted me and is curious.

    Yeah I know her bill got trashed and this is the Senate deal but she was the one holding it up.
    They got rid of so much of her stuff I wondered if they kept anything to get the Rs to remove some things the Ds wanted gone.
    There was all kind of negotiations so somethings had to be kept or what were they negotiating for 2 days ?

    That's what I was wondering

    no word yet as to what kind of nonsense was added. They were trying to add stuff. Trump said he would veto anything that had GND nonsense in it

    Not sure there is help for small businesses which I assume people who are self employed would qualify

    Sign up for lifeline if you qualify
    Been available since 1984 but Reagan phones don’t have quite the racial connotations

    How many essential employees today qualify for a highly coveted Obamaphone?

    I find this hard to believe. He simply doesn’t have the time between all of his tweeting and pseudo-campaign rallies.

    I think the bill has coverage for self employed and independent contractors. So workers who driver an Uber, for example, are covered.

    Well, I know of a wealthy boarding school that isn't liberal and they lay off their dining hall staff once every single year during the holiday break so that they can collect unemployment.

    I don't care if Harvard is liberal or conservative. Sounds kind of shitty to me.

    I always say, if the ObamaPhone, Welfare, Medicaid, Food Stamp life is so much fun, why don't the people whining about it just quit their jobs, get on the gravy train and live the high life? :)

    very much so. they are filthy rich and save a paltry few bucks in layoffs to the income sector most vulnerable. they act identical to the institution they complain about the most....big business. irony at its finest.

    I doubt that most Harvard alums are "liberal" I would assume most are wealthy Republicans.
