Interim Stimulus Bill Finally Passed

Interim Stimulus Bill Finally Passed

(NewsReady.com) – After two weeks of back and forth between Republicans and Democrats, the interim stimulus has passed. Congress approved the $484 billion coronavirus package as it continues to deliberate over the Phase 4 bill. The primary focus of the latest spending bill is to aid small businesses during the COVID-19 pandemic.

In addition to businesses, the bill, or“Phase 3.5” stimulus as it’s referred to, will help hospitals.

The legislation easily passed the required two-thirds mark with 388 votes for, 5 against, 1 present, and 35 not voting.

Republicans wanted this package to solely focus on small businesses. They were ready to pass a bill with $250 billion in small business aid last week. Unfortunately, Democrats held it up.

Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin stepped in to work out a deal. President Trump signed the bill at noon on April 24.

  1. Why dont we have a real leader who brings people together instead of always dividing us apart? Listen to the speech of a real leader:

    Ugandan 🇺🇬 President’s address to his nation ~ A wisdom to share✨

    President KAGUTA MUSEVENI of Uganda warns against people misbehaving during this COVID-19 period : “God has a lot of work, He has the whole world to look after. He cannot just be here in Uganda looking after idiots…”. Below is his reported statement.

    “In a war situation, nobody asks anyone to stay indoors. You stay indoors by choice. In fact, if you have a basement, you hide there for as long as hostilities persist. During a war, you don’t insist on your freedom. You willingly give it up in exchange for survival. During a war, you don’t complain of hunger. You bear hunger and pray that you live to eat again

    During a war, you don’t argue about opening your business. You close your shop (if you have the time), and run for your life. You pray to outlive the war so that you can return to your business (that’s if it has not been looted or destroyed by mortar fire).

    During a war, you are thankful to God for seeing another day in the land of the living. During a war, you don’t worry about your children not going to school. You pray that the government does not forcefully enlist them as soldiers to be trained in the school premises now turned military depot.

    The world is currently in a state of war. A war without guns and bullets. A war without human soldiers. A war without borders. A war without cease-fire agreements. A war without a war room. A war without sacred zones.

    The army in this war is without mercy. It is without any milk of human kindness. It is indiscriminate – it has no respect for children, women, or places of worship. This army is not interested in spoils of war. It has no intention of regime change. It is not concerned about the rich mineral resources underneath the earth. It is not even interested in religious, ethnic or ideological hegemony. Its ambition has nothing to do with racial superiority. It is an invisible, fleetfooted, and ruthlessly effective army.

    Its only agenda is a harvest of death. It is only satiated after turning the world into one big death field. Its capacity to achieve its aim is not in doubt. Without ground, amphibious and aeriel machines, it has bases in almost every country of the world. Its movement is not governed by any war convention or protocol. In short, it is a law unto itself. It is Coronavirus. Also known as COVID-19 (because it announced its destructive presence and intention in the year of our Lord 2019)

    Thankfully, this army has a weakness and it can be defeated. It only requires our collective action, discipline and forbearance. COVID-19 cannot survive social and physical distancing. It only thrives when you confront it. It loves to be confronted. It capitulates in the face of collective social and physical distancing. It bows before good personal hygiene. It is helpless when you take your destiny in your own hands by keeping them sanitized as often as possible.

    This is not a time to cry about bread and butter like spoilt children. After all, the Holy book tells us that man shall not live by bread alone. Let’s obey and follow the instructions of the authorities. Let’s flatten the COVID-19 curve. Let’s exercise patience. Let’s be our brothers’ keeper. In no time, we shall regain our freedom, enterprise and socializing.”

    In the midst of EMERGENCY, we practice urgency of service and the urgency of love for others✨ God bless us all

    👏👏, the best and most intelligent public speech ever made during Covid-19 off to him.

  2. we have got to get out and vote in nov and make sure trump is still our president or we will lose our country.pleade vote red

  3. I WONDER THE SAME THING, WHAT, THIS PORKY PIG STUFF SHOULD BE SHOVELED IN THE MANURE PILE ALONG WITH THE REST OF THE SH—TS, I DON’T THINK THEY NEED ALL THEIR FRIENDS AND RELATIONS WORKING FOR THEM EITHER, DO YOUR OWN WORK, BUNCH OF LAZY CONGRESS DEMOCRATS, NANCY AND HER PET SCHUMY AND SNIFFY, DISGUSTING 3 SOME

  4. All that have abrogated their OATH of Office to Preserve and Protect the Constitution from enemy’s Foreign and domestic are occupieing the office illegally . Its called sedition at the least and treason . Since this has gone on for so long it has become accepted by the people confirming their lack of power . Now the only effective way to return to the intent of our Constitution is to dig some pits . When some in our Government openly avow hate of our Constitution and work to destroy our America the pit beckons . The left openly saying they will happily destroy our economy in order to remove Trump should be our call to Arms . This hate is truely Psycotic and its amazing these enemy’s of our Freedom can walk on our streets . Enough regain your lives your pride and lead others to Freedom . Cheers

  5. The Democrats will continue to destroy America at every chance they get. They want to be sure they make money off all legal American citizens.

    • The 35 Representatives who did not vote, no matter what their party, should pack their bags and go home. If they’re not going to participate in Solutions who’s a Corona virus problem, why in the hell are they there? It has long been my contention that members of Congress, be it Representatives or senators, should not be paid if they are not in session. If they’re in there office, then I suppose half pay would be appropriate because for all we know when they’re in their office, they got their shoes off and they’re cutting their toenails. We know each of them have about a hundred staffers and I do just about everything for the official including, from what I understand, read bill proposals and deliver a summary to the official. Now that’s be the case, what exactly do representatives and Senators do for us again?

  6. Was $484, really necessary when they were seeking $250 for small business. How much of the $134b really pork to satisfy Nancy Pelosi(millionaire) and Chuck Schumer?
