    The Republicans and Trump have figured out why negotiate and compromise with Democrats, when all they have to do is do nothing in Congress and simply have Trump issue executive orders and rule by decree......

    Republicans no longer have any interest in the well being of the majority of the people still alive in the United States.

    Could it be election-year politics?

    Democrats don't want anything good for this country or its citizens that could potentially make Trump look good. Democrats have repeatedly demonstrated they care more about their power than the good of this country. Republicans as a whole are not much better, which is why we need Trump right now. I have voted for both Parties, and neither has delivered much until Trump.

    Tiescore, you are exactly correct, but even worse, the demorats especially Pelosi (the hand signalling liar) and a couple of her lying friends also want to give out our tax money to their friends in various companies and entities to make themselves seem important.  @ Ann, IHello!  I agree totally with your answer.  @Anonymous, while I agree with your main point, what is wrong with Fema? Also, Trump has to find a way to fight the damn demorat liars, and there will be no change in parties, other than maybe the demorat party. The only people who hate Trump are those who are jealous that he won, and they have fooled the ignorant demorats to believe the lies of Pelosi and other liars. @Wondering, perhaps you lie a bit too, much. From where does McConnell make $8,000 per day? That's $240,000 per month, and @2,880,00 per year.

    Mainly Democrats are trying to use this as a opportunity to get bailout money for spend crazy state and local governments.

    checks and balances

    the money being use with the executive order is fema money

    while the creation of fema was not a good one and should be dissolved TRUMP will as many use the fema to look better politically while Congress wants to make people suffer to make trump look bad,. 

    the answer is states need a state level state based emergency fund 

    if you live by big brother you die by big brother 

    President  trump is using big brother power of the past to break down big brother power buying in congress 

    what come around goes around 

    Tenth Amendment to the United States Constitution

    The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.[5]

    why did the congress not pass theirs?,,, they padded it to buy off their political  IOU's to certain people ,, they could not agree who was to be bought off ... Congress is being remade by the voters who choose the man of neither party TRUMP and now people in congress realize the deal making of FDR LBJ JFK are over (extortion) 

    the people are demanding the down size of government ,,, next election will all but dissolve both parties as they are known and they will have to oust the old task masters and put people not all about power in DC 

    like it or not deny it or not TRUMP an ex-democrat and now a MAVERICK republican no longer owes favors to the political machines - both behind the seen party people hate trump  --

    The 116th United States Congress got a Senate Majority Republican but the greatest deal president can't make a deal, for a simple reason as usual Republican wielding power at the White House care about money in their pockets as the majority of Dems  but like all the times their GOP conservative fiscal orthodoxy of cutting government spending, balancing budgets and reducing the national debt have been thrown out the window to provide welfare only for billionaires... not for the People... 

    Who cares if Trump derided Obama’s executive orders as ‘power grabs’ and many Republicans cry about  Obama’s executive orders, but in each year of Trump presidency, Trump has surpassed Obama’s executive orders total and curiously Trump Republicans control the senate, just think about that... GOP control the senate yes they got enough votes to agree without Dems for providing or negotiate a coronavirus relief package...Did Trump complain when Obama signed executive orders when the Republican Senate will not agree? Yes Trump complain, but he did the same...  when his own Senate Majority Republican don't act...

    Dems want to create an environmental narrative to blame Trump about lack of coronavirus relief package. Problem for them, he recognized their game and stopped the creation of that narrative

    It's like when I say the Country should not have any National Debt and Liberals say we should have $50 trillion debt so why don't we compromise and say $25 trillion for now.
