“We reached an agreement yesterday on a new legislative package that will provide strong support for American families and communities in dealing with the coronavirus.” – President Donald J. Trump

STRONG LEGISLATIVE ACTION: President Donald J. Trump is signing a legislative package that provides extensive assistance to Americans impacted by the coronavirus.

    • Today, President Trump is signing the Families First Coronavirus Response Act, ensuring that American families and businesses impacted by the virus receive the strong support they need.
    • This legislation provides strong economic assistance to American businesses, workers, and families, alleviating financial burdens experienced by those affected by the virus.
    • The act provides free coronavirus diagnostic testing for the American people, regardless of their economic circumstances or health coverage.
    • The President and his Administration have worked tirelessly with Congress to secure this legislative package.
    • The Administration’s negotiation efforts were highly effective and resulted in substantial improvements from the initial bill brought by House Democrats.

SUPPORTING BUSINESSES, WORKERS, AND FAMILIES: This package delivers on President Trump’s commitment to provide strong economic support to Americans harmed by the virus.

    • This legislation builds on the Administration’s longstanding commitment to take every step necessary to provide economic relief and support for Americans affected by the virus.
    • The act establishes tax credits to provide paid sick and family leave for coronavirus-related employment interruptions.
      • Eligible workers who are sick with the virus, quarantined, taking care of someone affected or caring for a child whose school has closed, will continue to be paid.
      • Employees will receive pay directly from their employers, rather than from a less-efficient government-run program.
    • Though every dollar of required paid leave will be offset by tax credits for eligible employers, the act protects small businesses by offering an exemption in the rare event that paid leave requirements would jeopardize their business.
    • The legislation incentivizes states to ease access to unemployment benefits, assisting Americans who may be unemployed due to the impact of the virus.
    • To support families and the most vulnerable, the bill also provides funding and flexibility for emergency nutritional aid for senior citizens, women, children, and low-income families.

TESTING FOR ALL AMERICANS: This legislation helps to realize President Trump’s primary goal of ensuring coronavirus testing is accessible to every American.

    • The President is committed to ensuring that every American who needs to be tested for the coronavirus is able to do so, regardless of their circumstances.
    • To that end, this legislation offers free coronavirus testing – including free testing through commercial insurance, Medicare, Medicaid, CHIP, Indian Health Service, and TRI-CARE.
    • President Trump continues to work tirelessly with the Federal government and the private sector to protect expand Americans’ access to coronavirus testing.
      • As a result of the President’s efforts, testing is now available in all 50 states and we are testing faster than ever.

Of this, you can be sure: those who hate Trump, or the “Never Trumpers,” will be first to line up for their government sponsored Corona checks. Then they will proceed to whatever line comes next, to make sure they get their “Trump sponsored” portion of it. This is them talking out one side of their political mouth, while lining up for assault weapons and ammo on the other.

The one thing more contagious than corona is fear, panic and leftist disinformation attacking Trump and undermining his people’s work. Dr. Faucci shouldn’t have to go on Communist Network News or MSLSD and put the smackdown on the lies they’re saying about what he’s telling the public.

When are you Trump supporters going to own-up to the direct communism you voted into this country? Or if your argument is “well he’s better than…”, when are you going to withdraw your religious faith in democracy and electoral politics?

NPCs expressing “thumbs-down” displeasure without any reasoned response. What I’ve come to expect from leftists and the populist right alike.

@Autism, What is a religious faith in democracy? What are electoral politics? How does one “withdraw” a religious or any other kind of faith? Are you a native English speaker?

Gee, Wild Bill, mistaking my common American name for “autism” seems to indicate that it’s you who has an insufficient grasp of English, as I wouldn’t assume that you’d actually make such a juvenile, unclever jab. Religious faith in democracy is just that. Most people see the democratic state as a god, even if they don’t know that they do, to take care of and provide for them, to give them laws and command how they live, to worship by rituals and idols, all the elements contained within most religious faiths, things for which I personally look to the living… Read more »

It was the autocorrect spell check. But I like it! It fits you.
You are mixing religious and political concepts. You can not logically or honestly speak for “most people”. Your sentence structure, paragraphing and even word usage are unprepossessing. These are all signs of an unlearned person trying to sound smart.
My race horse uses logic better than you.

@Autism, you need to remove the giant phallus from your mouth. You’re unintelligible and retarded.

The phallus is Trump’s. The mouths are those of his voters. I still hear nothing at all of substance or reason. Just empty NPC “orange man good” name-calling and baseless accusation.
Do you support Trump and his communism or not? When will Trumpers drop their support of a communist? That’s all I ask. All else I’ve said is just to do with the anticipated weaselly excuse I’ve come to expect as an answer.

Trump, communist??? You really ARE retarded. You’re confusing Trump for Bernie or any one of the other Commiecrat politicians calling for unfettered socialism.

I neither like or hate the man, nor do I trust him any more than any other elected official (based on how far I can toss’em).

Your lame effort to turn this around is a hard fail, and the phallus is the dead d!ck of Karl Marx himself. I can tell you’re a closeted commietard because your TDS is out there for the whole world to see.
