Why can't the government unite in helping the people?

This time politicians show their true colours as far as I am concerned.

The government came with a rescuedeal for companies and individuals due to the coronacrisis and the politicians manage to block this, in this case the Democrats. It is sickening to see how they use their power to block help for the people.

Senate Democrats were able to successfully block the coronavirus stimulus package from moving forward as five GOP senators were absent due to coronavirus or precautionary self-quarantine.

Senators voted 47-47 on advancing a “shell” bill, a placeholder that the text of the stimulus legislation would have been swapped into, falling short of the three-fifths threshold needed to advance the proposal.
Hopes of a quick stimulus deal quickly unraveled on Sunday as the four congressional leaders and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin failed to break the impasse. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) also delayed the procedural vote for three hours as they tried to get a deal. -The Hill
Well, they will try again today and maybe this time they think of the people instead of their own agenda.

The government can't pick it's own nose if it was paid a million to do so. They are out of touch with reality half the time and most days I am just thankful we haven't hit WW3. lol

I think it has to do more with worrying about their issues first and everyone else's last. It seems like the only reason they don't want people to be out of work and losing their homes is because it only creates more problems for them. I am sick of the push for socialism in this country but it seems like some people in power really want it to happen.

The help has been too little too late, as usual.

Can you believe people have still not even received their first unemployment payment? The stimulus checks are a joke as well. Some people are saying those are going to take months. What good is $1200 going to do in 2 months time, by which time people will already have lost what they are trying to hold on to?

The good news is that the first 1200 dollar checks will be sent within days.

If you meet the requirements, the first economic stimulus checks from the IRS are expected to go out within days, around the middle of April.

This is an interesting article with a lot of useful information.
