Top GOP Senators Join List Backing Trump’s Demand for Increased Stimulus

GOP Senators Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue of Georgia have joined Marco Rubio as the GOP Senator backing President Trump’s demand for $2000 stimulus payments to Americans.

Mitch McConnell just blocked a quick vote on the increase on Tuesday, which was passed by the house on Monday.

However, McConnell did signal a willingness to address numerous Trump requests, including the increased payments and Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act.

According to Fox News:

Georgia GOP incumbent Sens. Kelley Loeffler and David Perdue, who are fighting to keep their seats in special runoff elections next week, voiced support for $2,000 stimulus checks on Tuesday.

Their announcements put them squarely in President Trump’s corner as the Senate weighs a newly passed House measure that would raise coronavirus relief payments to most Americans from $600 to $2,000.

Asked on “Fox & Friends” on Tuesday if she would back Trump’s repeated calls for greater relief, Loeffler said she was “proud to do that.”

“The president has fought for our country from day one. He continues to fight for every single American. I’ve stood by the president 100 percent of the time,” she said. “I’m proud to do that and I’ve said absolutely we need to get relief to Americans now and I will support that.”

It is unclear how quickly McConnell will move in addressing President Trump’s requests or if it will happen before the New Year.

I see Trump won the man of the year award beating out Obama, while Biden had a hard time beating out the floor sweeper. Pitiful, yet he was supposed tom have so many votes for President. By the way Microsoft and the China Connection are blocking the post concerning the 200,000 excess votes over who actually did vote. Meaning Biden got two hundred thousand votes more than even had the right to vote in Pennsylvania. But the crime syndicate is blocking this news claiming it is spam, or bogus.

Those that do NOT work, steal from those of us that do! Show me one Democrat that has “WORKED” a year in their life? Biden, Pelosi, Barry Soetoro, and hundreds of others. I’ve worked since I was 12 years old. In the 1980’s I made over $80,000 a year. As I followed my own advice! “IF You want a ‘Better Paying Job’, then go learn how to do one!”. I never went to College, yet companies paid to send me to school at “IBM”, SoftWareAG, and others. Why? I worked hard, succeeded, and had an IQ of 146. Even did all the analysis, design, programming, testing, documenting, and training for a “Fortune 500” companies “WorldWide Corporate Salaried Payroll System”. In 18 months, with “Zulu Delta” defects. Yet the Obama regime paid $6 BILLION for an “Obama Care” system that never worked correctly! Boy would I loved to have earned even one MILLION for my work!

I agree with you Lillian, Those Damocrap’s have been taking way to much of our money for way to long. To fund their parties and pay millions to those who contributed to their campaigns and we are paying for their transportation along with them buying exspensive gifts for their families and friends . that crap needs to be stopped anyway. Then they want to raise taxes more. Just to rape is of our money .

I hope you are wrong. It would be poetic justice for Trump to win on the tail end of this hotly debated issue. After all, he did get more legal votes. Biden got a lot of illegal ones because of the fraud. That is why there are two hundred thousand more votes cast than there are legal voters in Penn.

Yes and No. Mitch is doing a poor job of explaining himself. I think he wants the $ 600 to get to us quickly, then follow it with the $ 2,000 stimulus plus the removal of the 230 protective clause Big Tech and all those China News Media crowd are using to censor out Christians, Patriots, and the GOP while promoting then Scum-o-crats. I think it can be done through the FCC. Remove the top six managers and replace them with Loyal Christian Conservatives who support the Constitution and they can pull the license to operate from those who violate their license. You can not censor one party and promote another. That is bias, not fair and balanced. They all have to have a license. But thus far the FCC has done nothing. So let Trump reorganize them.

It may be he is looking to combine the 230 clause with the 2,000 $ stimulus. But in the mean time allow us to quickly get the $ 600 initial stimulus.

Both Parties are playing poltical games with our stimulus package. We need to make everything stand alone, no add on bills period! Vote for stimulus alone. Vote for removal of 230 clause alone. Vote for military spending alone. Vote for all those Pork barrel projects alone. Presently they tie weak unpopular bills to one that is popular and is much needed which forces a vote on the combo. That way the creeps get to approve of their Pork!
