House Democrats propose sending checks of up to $6,000 to help ease workers’ pain curing coronavirus pandemic

The Constitution provides a couple of mechanisms for Trump to lose the 2020 election—both the popular vote and the Electoral College—and still hold the office of president for a second term.

The federal government was not expected to pass emergency legislation to respond to the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic on Friday — despite Democrats and Republicans agreeing on a bill.

New reporting from The Daily Beast shows yet another example of the Trump administrations failure to respond to the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic.

“As the novel coronavirus threatens to overwhelm the U.S. public health systems, the Pentagon is withholding more than $104 million from the military’s most important chemical and biological research facilities—including a lab that conducts cutting-edge work on infectious diseases—according to a senior Pentagon official,” The Beast reported Friday evening.

“And that’s only one aspect of the military’s financial shortfall in the unfolding crisis. A document briefed to the top brass of the Army on Thursday and obtained by The Daily Beast from a second Defense Department official reveals that the service’s response to the coronavirus outbreak is short of funding by almost $1 billion,” The Beast revealed.
