Please, Speaker Pelosi, put your foot down

No further discussion of more stimulus funds until trump and the GOP Senate agree to a permanent and real Inspector General to oversee the expenditure of funds. Right now trump can move the current $2.2 trillion around as he sees fit. It may end up helping golf courses and building a wall on the border. We know we do not have a SCOTUS who will step in to stop the abuse.

Tell them this is the essential first step before we trust trump again. His competence and his honesty are no longer in question -- he has proven that neither of those qualities exist in any form.

14. No more stimulus money PLUS blaming the Dems for not passing it.

They achieve two goals at the same time.

9. And what happens when this crooked fool of a president simply ignores the new rules?

Is there any doubt that is what he will do? And of course, Senator Collins will find the actions "disturbing" and do nothing.

Speaker Pelosi must demand money for every state for mail in balloting. The legislation needs to set forth the exact amount due every state.

We will only end the pigs at our federal trough next January 20th, when Joe Biden is sworn in as our forty-sixth president.

Then, we can track all of this theft down, claw back our money and prosecute the thieves.

28. I could take even that

If we had transparency about where the personal protective equipment FEMA is taking from hospitals was going

If we had transparency about who is getting our 4 trillion dollars

If we had the slightest assurance that this unindicted co-conspirator of a president was not simply stealing our money to line his pockets.

We have none of that.

Shame! Shame! Shame!

America's first ship had to be built in all thirteen states. If we have to give more to Alabama than it should get, we can take that. California is strong, powerful and resilient. We have been funding states like Alabama for decades without complaint. We can take this, too.

Nonetheless, Alabama must expand Medicaid now or we all will know their governing majority for what it is-- a death cult.

26. Yes, Trump Should Not Have Oversight Over Stimulus Funds

You are right Speaker Pelosi and the Democrats need to stop discussions on further stimulus funds until an independent Inspector General is put in place. There is no reason to have Donald Trump overseeing stimulus funds. An Inspector General is needed to look over those funds.

Longer term there is the election. There is also civil disobedience but I donít know what form. I donít put much belief in protests.

Everything will be harder because of the outbreak but still important.
