Joe Manchin defends citizens over Wall Street

"It seems like we're more focused on the big corporations and in the health care of Wall Street than we are in the health care of the people in rural America and Main Street." Sen. Joe Manchin explained Democratic concerns about the coronavirus relief bill.

Avoiding Government Bailout Mistakes of the Past

Advocating for our healthcare system and it heroes

The worldwide COVID-19 pandemic has unequivocally delivered a painful shock to the global economy. Millions of self-employed individuals, businesses large and small, and the people who make those machines run are amidst a shared moment of crisis that needs to be mitigated by government-backed stimulus efforts. The United States doesn’t need to look too far back in their history to remember the last time these measures were needed. 2008’s subprime mortgage crisis required similar action, which ultimately helped revive the US economy while also failing to protect against the country’s major banks and financial giants misappropriating relief that came at the expense of the taxpayer. Senator Joe Manchin of West Virginia is making sure that his chamber understands the crucial difference between 2008 and 2020: lives are at stake. For the benefit of his constituents and health care professionals across the country, he is standing firm in making sure that priorities are focused on the immediate health emergency instead of the economic emergency. “I’ve got health care workers who don’t have gowns or masks. I’ve got hospitals that won't be open another 60 days because they have no cash flow, and it looks like we're worried more about the economy than we are about the healthcare and the well-being of the people of america” Manchin argues.

Bernie voicing concerns of the voiceless

True to his reputation and voting record, senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont has also joined the growing list of senators dedicated to ensuring that negotiated and passed stimulus package contains adequate protections for the displaced and hurting American workforce rather than focus mainly on propping up industry giants. The two main concerns involve unemployment insurance protections receiving necessary financial attention while also placing protections upon how exactly a proposed $500 billion in aid to corporate america will be distributed and used. The senator is on record that he only aims to delay a vote on the bill to “make sure that any corporation receiving financial assistance under this legislation does not lay off workers, cut wages or benefits, ship jobs overseas, or pay workers poverty wages.”

    Yeah democrats! They want a covid 19 relief bill that includes unrelated topics such as 1) carbon emission by airplanes 2) federal control of election 3) diversity in workplace 4) support to unions. I mean, isn't the freaking pandemic the concern now? Advocating a 1200 page long bill that includes unrelated and debatable topics in times of crisis is just pure evil. Every crisis is an opportunity for these people

    The priority is health , period. No solution other than that. And after it's over, China has some serious clarification to do.
