I'm not even sure we're doing this are we?  I think it's more not about the sides, but the individuals.  "Why are you concerned about this now when you didn't seem to be bothered by it before?"  Maybe that's just me since I know politicians are going to be political.  My wonder is why people put up with that.  It's never made sense to me.

This topic is the perfect illustration of that specific problem.  Just two months ago, the Dems proposed $2K only bill that the Senate didn't bring to the floor.  Many, rightfully IMO, said the move by McConnell was complete ####.  Now, the Dems are doing their dog and pony and those that were silent or defending McConnell are upset like those who were calling McConnell's move complete ####.  And those who were upset with McConnell are now defending the Dem's version of the same.  It's one of the most ###### up things I've seen...It's blatantly pathetic and has nothing to do with the politicians themselves rather those who support them and their actions.

Yeah, I think McConnell should have done better then.  Sorry if I didn't post that enough.  I guess I get tired of everytime I criticize someone I'm forced to answer "Why did you stay silent back in December?!!>!>! Hypokrit!""

It would be great if we could discuss the issues and not this constant "You didn't criticize your guy enuff back when."  It's insufferable.  It makes me not want to post here.  

Regardless of what Mitch did or didn't do, the Dems proposing a stimulus package with 9% going to COVID relief is in my eyes bad.

I call  on all the anectdotes from far right leaning folks who know someone's cousin or sister or grandmother that got three mail in ballots and 2 checks and all that jazz.

90% of congress probably doesnt either.

Party over country.  They don't want to give Biden a win.

They aren't.  Stimulus checks alone are around 25% of bill.

This is a false interpretation of the OP. 
I never wrote “why won’t Republicans do the right thing?” or “why won’t Republicans help Americans?” I don’t even think of such terms. My question was not an ethical one; it was a political question. With so much of the public in favor of the bill I was surprised that not a single Republican, not even the supposed moderates, were joining the Democrats on what would clearly be a popular move and which is going to pass anyhow. That was my point, please refrain from putting words in my mouth. 

I assume most Republicans support the 9% of Covid relief and not the other 91%, and a lot of people are just being asked do you support a stimulus package yes or no

95% of the discussion is about what the other side did back in December. We can’t ever have a productive discussion about what’s actually happening because everyone Hass to stop and ask why you’re being such a stupid hypocrite and why you didn’t talk about Mitch blocking the December bill enough. I absolutely love that game. I have now acknowledge that Mitch McConnell did bad in December, may I now speak freely on what’s happening today please press one if yes

That brings us to the question of what’s actually in the bill.

Republicans have raised this question throughout the discussion of Biden’s proposal, in some cases exaggerating the nature of the spending that’s not tied directly to COVID-19 containment.

A long list of initiatives is clearly related to the pandemic, however.

About 22% of the total bill comes from the $422 billion set aside for $1,400-per-person stimulus checks. Another 13% ($246 billion) is for extending additional unemployment funding of $400 a week.

A combined 12% is going to:

Subsidized COBRA for laid-off workers.

Affordable Care Act subsidies for the next two years.

Expanded nutrition assistance to replace school lunch programs during the pandemic.

Funding for testing and contact tracing.

Disaster Relief Fund increases and covering COVID-19-related funeral expenses.

Grants to airlines and contractors to freeze layoffs through September.

Defense Production Act funding for medical supplies.

Grants for restaurants and bars that have lost revenue in the pandemic.

Economic Injury Disaster Loan Advance grants of up to $10,000 per business.

Another $519 billion – 27% of the total – is going to state and local governments and schools, much of which will make up losses related to the pandemic and help schools reopen. Republicans note much of the school funding, however, won’t be spent immediately.

If the government and school aid is included in this category, about 85% of the American Rescue Plan is pandemic-related, according to a breakdown by the Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget.

It’s bothersome to me that the majority of this bill won’t go to Covid relief and we’re OK with that. I won’t lose any sleep if they pass it. I hope the American people get the help that they need.

but Tim and other posters acting like Republicans are being bad once again for no reason when they have said repeatedly that the pork is the hold up it’s ridiculous.

Furthermore, a lot of the people that seem to be pushing for pass it anyway and let California have their tunnel and New York have the bridge all the expense of federal tax payer dollars, are the same people saying that we need more wealth tax to raise revenue.

I guess it gives me pause thinking that Jeff Bezos owes New York a bridge.

To be fair, a lot of the references to December are in response to posts along the lines of "Why can't Democrats just pass a bill with checks and nothing else?"

This from Romney's WSJ editorial...

The Congressional Budget Office’s recent analysis of the plan found that more than a third of the proposed funding—$700 billion—wouldn’t be spent until 2022 or later, undermining the administration’s claim that the massive price tag is justified for urgent pandemic-related needs.

*  The Biden stimulus calls for $170 billion for education yet has no realistic plan to reopen K-12 schools. Further, of the $80 billion Congress has already authorized for education, $68 billion hasn’t yet been used by schools and universities. Stunningly, the CBO says only 4% of the K-12 spending in the Biden bill would occur in 2021 and that some education and labor funds would remain unspent in 2029, after a potential Biden second term.

*  Extending federal supplemental unemployment benefits beyond March 14 is a good idea that merits bipartisan support. But the Biden stimulus calls for checks of $400 a week in addition to state checks through September. At that level, the majority of the unemployed would make more by not working. 

*  Senate Republicans will support whatever is needed to expand Covid testing, accelerate vaccine delivery and support health providers. We will likewise support robust assistance for those who have been crushed financially by the pandemic, including by losing their jobs.

It's interesting to imagine a world with Mitt actually consistently stands up for what he believes in. Instead, he keeps retreating into pure partisanship when he thinks it helps him. He is just another opportunist and its why he didn't get elected in 2012

I get it.  it can be annoying, but reality is, these politicians are ONLY going to do the MINIMUM it takes to keep themselves in their positions.  So, if we want change, we need to focus on OUR behavior and what we tolerate.  Of course, this is coming from a guy who wants things to actually change.  I know many here are just here for the :pokey: and :hophead:.  It's wise just to ignore the nonsensically framed "standards" and baitless hooks thrown over the side of their fishing boats.

This goes back to my comment earlier (to you maybe?) stating I am confident there is pork in the bill, but am NOT confident in how the GOP / Dems determine what the "pork" is.  I mean in this thread, money going to schools to help them through this mess "shouldn't count" nor should money going to state/local governments, for reasons I don't really understand.

So while I agree that money needs to be in the hands of individuals first and foremost, I can also acknowledge that money in this bill being slated for unemployment coffers as well as to replenish cofferes of state/local governments are also areas that "count" as part of the COVID funding.

So it’s your position they didn’t do impeachment instead of addressing Covid relief?

I think Trump should’ve been impeached, I wish they had blocked him from running again.

But it was definitely put on the agenda in such a way that Covid relief got pushed back

Id say there are more conservatives here than progressives posting.

I’m glad Republicans voted against $1 trillion in non-COVID spending in the COVID relief bill. 
 

https://www.theblaze.com/news/kennedy-biden-covid-relief-bill-orgy-of-pork

That article includes in its list $40 billion for higher education, and that bothers me.  Since I've worked in higher ed for thirty four years (thirty of those as the controller, managing the finances), I recognize the struggles that schools have faced with lower enrollments (due to the effect of COVID on family incomes, fears, etc.), lost housing revenues, cancellation of revenue-generating programs (theatre; music), etc.  It's an indirect effect, but it's a COVID effect nonetheless.

This is nothing to do with "what about when".  It's asking for consistency right now.  Do we believe owners or not?  It really is hypocritical to state that we should believe owner A because he's the owner but then not believe owner B simply because we don't like what owner B has to say.

Personally, I believe Joe when he says the moderators are instructed to be even-handed to "both sides".  Why?  Because Joe is a stand-up guy and that's a statement of fact; either they are or they aren't so instructed.  I don't believe Joe is correct in his assessment of the political slant of the board.  Why?  Because Joe admits to reading less than 10% of the board and because it's a statement of opinion that carries with it one's own bias.  I also don't necessarily believe Twitter or Facebook regarding anything.  Why?  For one, because I have virtually no personal association or knowledge regarding the owners of those places.  For another, because I suspect that the motivation of most public statements by those particular groups is to maximize stock price.

So we can pick and choose politicians but not business owners?

I rarely believe politicians.  In Trump's case, I usually disbelieve him because he has a history of lying.  It's not the "who", it's the "why".  That is, when one's justification for believing someone is "because he's the owner" then I expect consistency with regard to that justification.

For specifics from me.  If this place  was far left...wouldn’t the majority support progressives?  Even Bernie, as charismatic as he is, his ideas are not supported by any majority.   
Most have a negative opinion of AOC policy wise and her antics.  There is not some groundswell of support fro the squad.

Instead, more support for the moderate candidates like Biden.  Like Pete.  Even looking for moderate to liberal Republicans like Flake and Kasich.  Would that be true if this place was “far left”.

I edited my post to address this:

I have a bad habit of lumping posters together.  And so I realized you may tend to not believe any politicians.  But certainly a lot of the board argues that Trump always lies and that's why he's ok to not lend belief to.  Which is perfectly rational.  

I assume for business owners, there are also rational reasons to not believe them.  But your bigger point is fair.  Just because someone owns it doesn't mean they know all the happenings.

I'm not sure how we've gotten so far down the rabbit hole of "Is this board more left" in a thread about the COVID relief bill.  

I assume the post meant there's a constant growing percentage of Liberal posters--as opposed to the collective body is moving left ideologically.  

I actually think the majority of the posters on the board are very rational, reasonable liberals.  

I think a lot of times we talk past each other and just assume what someone believes and that perhaps lends to the idea that "we're moving towards socialism."

I’m not quite getting the argument that two months in isn’t immediate enough, therefore Biden broke his promise and Democrats are all liars? Seems a little weak. 

If memory serves there is a deadline in April in which unemployment runs out. The goal was always to get this passed prior to that date. 

I won't defend the dems are all liars bit (although all politicians are), but the fact that Biden's team waited week after week after inauguration to get things presented on the floor was a massive #### up.  He knew what day he would be president.  he had time to prepare.  he campaigned in Georgia on "immediately."  those votes were 100% affected by that promise.  those votes shifted congress.  and then he waited.  massive miss IMHO.
