WASHINGTON: House Speaker Nancy Pelosi says she's ready to pass Trump's demand to up the stimulus check amount to $2,000 this week by unanimous consent, which doesn't require a vote.
Pipe dream.
I'm disappointed in Dems for calling his bluff. One step closer to this deal falling apart completely.

Republicans should agree to the $2000 and portray that in Georgia as a win

Can someone explain to me what the insurrection Act is and why they stuck an amendment inside this bill which nullified it?

Do any of the "several other changes" that President Trump is requesting have to do with this: ?
Some of it.
For example he said, why 1.2 billion to Egypt, but then they will go ahead and use the money to buy arms from Russia.

That would be a win for the Ds, since apparently the $2k is not his only problem with the current bill on his desk.

Seeing all the Dems jumping in with tweets saying "Let's do $2,000, glad the president is on our side" makes me think they are all becoming geirim/being chozer b'teshuva. Suddenly no mention of all that pork.

The Rs should prey on that and introduce a bill with the 2k and cut the pork. (wishful thinking, I know)
I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.

They wouldn't be able to get away with cutting the D pork without cutting the R pork.

Also, many seem to be confusing this bill with a regular stimulus bill. This bill is really a full appropriations bill with the stimulus being a small part of it. That pork is all simply part of every regular appropriations bill.

At $600 per qualified person it costs ~$200 Billion, so if we changed that to $2,000 it would cost ~$670 Billion (though in reality less because it wont be 2000 for each child). After that there's still plenty of money to add to unemployment benefits before we reach the same $900 Billion. If they actually did this it would be a historic act and likely the first time in any of our lifetimes that a congressional bill was more tilted to ordinary people than to lobbyists.

There’s 0% chance of that happening, just like there’s 0% chance of the omnibus bill passing with all the pork cut. This is simply how business gets done in Washington and one more reason our country is going to h*ll.

The pork is just as much Republican if not more.

The dems will be happy to cut all pork and just do 2k, because they can always pass a spending bill more favorable to them with the next congress.

Wouldn't that depend on the senate? Also, isn't doesn't this spending bill cover the entire budged through 3Q21?

There will be more pressure on the rs even if they keep the senate if there is a d president. Also a new congress won't want to be seen as obstructionist

As we all know you are 100% correct here. What's shocking is how we all know this and continue to let it happen this way. I can remember a time where we talked about how corrupt other countries were compared to the US.
