  1. There was another bill put there stating that small business stays out of Union business what is that exactly.. This guy was responsible for the AB5 Bil in California.. . The gig economy bill

  2. I thought it was the state's responsibility to protect their citizens in their constituents… This falls at the hands of the governors

  3. I thought we had strict safety regs. This is surprising. With that said, because we get most of what is needed from China, that explains the shortage. We need all of this produced here in the U.S. Win win. Safety, security and more jobs created here in the U.S.

  4. McConnel was right. They have nothing to do with what this bill is for.

  5. Pelosi used a moron who contributes to herr campaign fund this man is pandering on a a national emergency he automatically answered they dont have proper equip the lied then corrected hi hope he is investigted

  6. The postal service should b closed

  7. Adult dependents do NOT get a stimulus check stiffing families that take care of there family members out of a check. See page 146 on the stimulus bill.

  8. time to bring production back to America. many small towns and cities out there would love the jobs, and would add to national security?????

  9. The Democrat Party, is shameless, commencing with the House Speaker, Nancy Pelosi!

  10. Hoffa, Trumka, same thing. What's the difference.

  11. Sorry but war powers act for PPE? This takes specific materials and processes to build that most manufactures don't have capability, knowledge or skills to do. By the time they got ramped up with correct equipment and learned the equipment and skills I would pray this is over. It's not like getting GM & Ford to build Jeeps, tanks and equipment they were basically familiar with. Those with skills and abilities for this are already stepping up production. Places that sell it to public like Harbor Freight are pulling their stock from shelves and offering it to local hospitals and clinics in their areas instead of selling to general public, putting it where needed before panic cleaned them out. And having worn and worked in this equipment all my adult life, the reusable mask unless you are looking at full rubber or plastic respirators with replaceable cartridges are not good for the Healthcare environment you want to be able to throw it away if contaminated with blood & body fluids which happens more than you like to think of.

  12. This guy is a pos he does nothing for the union tradesmen . All the unions endorsed Biden what a fing joke. Trump 2020. I’m a union member and the unions suck .

  13. Conservatives hates SOCIALISM so much that they're using the system to save CAPITALISM. 😆

  14. Union man, shouldn't you worry your own member pension?

  15. PERFECT? Hey, it's only going to last another 2 MONTHS
    What about SENIOR CITIZENS?

  16. Cuomo sat idly by for 11, eleven, years and refused to stock up on supplies for an EMERGENCY. He wanted to get ahead of the news by pointedly mirroring President Trump's actions, then wanting praise for copying the President, only to have the fairy queen Media act like Cuomo did something on his own.

    The Communist Democrats have no creative policies FOR THE American people, but are creative in carving out self aggrandizement from money designed to help AMERICANS, not Communist Democrats.

  17. "… done very quickly …" And there is the rub. Don't be surprised if it takes a month or so – after the virus has abated.

  18. Fox business. Yeah, right. Giving credibility to a known anti -Trump democrat.

  19. We have to reuse our N95 masks 😏

  20. MODERNISIOM SUCKS ENOUGH IS ENOUGH SHUT EVERYTHING DOWN SATAN WANTS TO CHIP EVERYONE TO THIS BEAST MACNINE WHY CAN,T GOD TAKE OUT ALL THESE SNAKE CULTS OUT OF THIS WORLD ENOUGH IS ENOUGH JESUS CHRIST IS THE OIL WATER AND BLOOD NOT THE SOLOR PANELS WIND MILLS AND ALL THEY OTHER HIGH TECH CRAP THATS CAUSING THE OIL TO RISE POISION ARE WATERS AND AIR AND ALL ARE LIVES BECAUSE HUMANITY IS NOT BURNING THE OIL FAST ENOUGH TAKE SATAN OUT OF THIS WORLD

  21. They couldn't put money in for sick leave, but they sure as he'll got money for the Kennedy center. Wtf

  22. Those extra's were all talk ???
    Ok bud…why were they EVEN talking about adding THEM???
    HE IS PART OF THE PROBLEM…
    WHO ELECTED HIM TO MAKE LAWS AND CHANGES????
    A FREAKIN' UNION MOBSTER???
    MAKING CALLS ON A 2 TRILLION DOLLAR AID PACKAGE????
    DEEP STATE BS
    CALLED IT

  23. BS! Solar in was Pelosi's 1400 pages including carbon credits and a postal bailout. His union is a large part of the PO's problem. They want to be treated like government employees when they're a "private" business, one that can't compete in a market with competitors like UPS and Fedex, in addition to Amazon's extensive shipping network and their contractors. The P.O. accumulated all that debt despite annual subsidies of tax dollars! Let's be real! Regarding pension funds: should taxpayers underwrite state funds heavily invested in China? Between the new trade deal and global dissatisfaction with China over their hiding the virus those plans likely lose money. CA, for example, is said to have overloaded their pension fund with Chinese investments made by a Chinese individual who publicly stated that he was supporting the "motherland.". Sorry, that can't be the taxpayer's problem! It's time CA had to admit their fault and be accountable – balance their budget and stop supporting illegals!

  24. why is fox asking a socialist crime boss how he wants taxpayer money to be spent on his goons?

  25. This money is for the people who are losing money not for Dems pet project money so now the people get less
