  1. By all means, Cuomo should be held accountable for his wrong doings….What happen, when Biden was accused, for his sexual accusations? Oh, no, that has to be swept under the rug….How about his deals he was making with China? That also was swept under the rug….What about the dealings, with his son Hunter? I guess that wasnt very important either….All this crap, that the Swamp has created, seems unimportant, to them….There is major corruption, that has been going on, since Our President Trump started thinking of running for President….Yes, I truly believe, that the Election, was rigged, I am not sure who is responsible for it, but the rats, need to be held accountable for all their wrong doings…Our Country, needs to be brought back to Freedom…This is making me so sick… I applaud Sidney Powell for all she does. If the truth is known, the riots of January 6th, was also preplanned by the swamp.Every single day, theres something the swamp does to hurt us, the American Public….Wake up people

  2. If you want businesses to pay their workers more you could cut their taxes (like Switzerland), encourage PRIVATE unions etc. Ruining the economy and driving up unemployment for the sake of looking generous isn’t the answer.

  3. Pushing a $15 minimum wage is politically astute, but not economically astute.
    No business can pay a worker $15 an hour unless that worker brings much more than $15 an hour into the business.
    Forcing businesses to pay wages disproportionate to the value of the worker will result in businesses hiring less workers and demanding a higher skill set from the workers that they do hire.
    Some believe that employers have an obligation to provide workers with a certain standard of living.
    I believe that this is tyrannical.
    Employers have no obligation to workers other than to pay them the wages that they mutually agree upon.
    Providing people with a standard of living is the domain of charity, and should be left to the individual discretion of every citizen.

  4. Dear Hirono,

    Your state currently has an unemployment rate of 15%.

    This is not the time to talk about raising wages.

    If wages increase, tourism prices must increase to cover that, which prices out some tourists. That means fewer people are employed and fewer guests come to spend money.

    You can't make a cause and expect to be able to pick and choose effects. You can't vote away undesired consequences.

    This is madness.

  5. Raising minimum wage is pointless unless cost of living is low…. people can earn 25hr for 40 hrs and still live check to check because food and rent are ridiculously out of this world… not to mention extra bills plus kids soooo yeah cost of living is the problem not minimum wage

  6. Republicans are incredibly selfish, greedy and evil. They have no problem making money for themselves but love to keep the lower and middle class slaves to poverty. Lower and middle class pay the majority of taxes in America, not the rich and corporations. Democrats need to grow a spine, use the power they have just like Republicans do, did and will do again if they take the House or Senate back. They need to fire the House Parliamentarian, who is not an elected official.

  7. trump wants america to become dysfunctional and frozen up and distracted by making it attack itself through the jan 6 psyops at the capital, and then investigating itself. if that doesnt cause dysfunction and gridlock in government what will right? trump figures it will make it much easier then to take advantage while our government implodes. its all a distraction. you figure kamala harris would investigate things right? thats what trump wants, to drag her into his mess. kamala should instead be busy telling the parlimentarian to take a hike and disregard her opinion that the robert byrd rule should apply. why? so america gets the 1.9 emergency trillion covid and minimum wage bill passed intact. if mitch mcconnell can fire a parlimentarian and hire a new one that lets him and all republicans have their way then why cant kamala do the same? we need to get rid of the filibuster and the byrd rule and get this bill passed with the $15 dollar wage left in it. america needs help now. kamala needs to move now and flex her muscles to show mcconnell and the parlimentarian and the corrupt senate and trump and those seditious fascists who is boss. she needs to take control and save america from financial ruin by disreguarding the parlimentarian and passing the bill intact by passing the bill with 51 votes. she has every right and americas blessing to do so . the slavery enabling filibuster and byrd rule does not apply and in fact must be abolished. time for joe and kamala to step up and make america whole again.

  8. Democrats are playing game, trying to stall the stimulus or sabotage it. $15 wage is not that important right now as covid relief, leave the battle for later.
    They will lose to Trump 2024, I will not vote for these scumbags again.

  9. Jesus Christ saves from sin.
    Romans 3: 23
    For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;
    Hebrews 9: 27
    And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:
    Isaiah 64: 6
    But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away.
    Revelation 21: 8
    But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.
    Romans 5: 8
    But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
    John 3: 16
    For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
    John 14: 6
    Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
    Romans 10: 9-10.
    That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
    For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
    Jesus said John 5: 24
    Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.
    1John 5: 10-13
    He that believeth on the Son of God hath the witness in himself: he that believeth not God hath made him a liar; because he believeth not the record that God gave of his Son.
    And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son.
    He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life.
    These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God.
    Ephesians 2: 8-9
    For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:
    Not of works, lest any man should boast.
    Romans 8: 1
    There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.
    1 Corinthians 15: 3-4
    For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures;
    And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:
    2 Corinthians 5: 21
    For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.

  10. Have You Understand The Process Of Why Those In Authority In America Claim That Their Educated & intelligent But Never Establish Reality Of Why Birds Are 100% Above Their Head's & Anyone Can Have More Understanding Then All Of Them Combined!

  11. Then Jesus said to the crowds and to his disciples: “The teachers of the law and the Pharisees sit in Moses’ seat. So you must be careful to do everything they tell you. But do not do what they do, for they do not practice what they preach. They tie up heavy, cumbersome loads and put them on other people’s shoulders, but they themselves are not willing to lift a finger to move them.
    Everything they do is done for people to see: They make their phylacteries wide and the tassels on their garments long; they love the place of honor at banquets and the most important seats in the synagogues; they love to be greeted with respect in the marketplaces and to be called ‘Rabbi’ by others.
    “But you are not to be called ‘Rabbi,’ for you have one Teacher, and you are all brothers. And do not call anyone on earth ‘father,’ for you have one Father, and he is in heaven. Nor are you to be called instructors, for you have one Instructor, the Messiah. The greatest among you will be your servant. For those who exalt themselves will be humbled, and those who humble themselves will be exalted".

    You shall not make for yourself an image in the form of anything, in Heaven above or in the Earth beneath, or in the waters below. You shall not bow down to them or worship them, for I the Lord your God am a jealous God, punishing the children for the sin of the parents up to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me, but showing love to a thousand generations of those who love me and keep my commandments.

    "If my people who are called by my name, humble themselves and pray, AND TURN FROM THEIR WICKED WAYS, I will hear from Heaven, will forgive their sins, and will heal their land."

    And when you pray, do not be like the hypocrites, for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the street corners to be seen by others. Truly I tell you, they have received their reward in full. But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you. And when you pray, do not keep on babbling like pagans, for they think they will be heard because of their many words. Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask him.

    This, then, is how you should pray:

    Our Father in heaven,
    hallowed be your name,
    your kingdom come,
    your will be done,
    on earth as it is in heaven.
    Give us today our daily bread.
    And forgive us our debts,
    as we also have forgiven our debtors.
    And lead us not into temptation,
    but deliver us from the evil one.

    For if you forgive other people when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive others their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins.

    A time is coming and has now come, that the true worshipers will worship the Father in Spirit and Truth. God is Spirit, so his worshipers must worship in the Spirit and Truth; they are the kind of worshipers the Father seeks.

  12. The book of Isaiah was written 700~ years before the Lord Jesus Christ was born. Read the Bible, pray, and fellowship with other believers.

    (Isaiah 7:14)  Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.

    (Matthew 1:23)  Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us.

    (Isaiah 9:6)  For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.
    (Isaiah 9:7)  Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this.

    (Psalms 22:15)  My strength is dried up like a potsherd; and my tongue cleaveth to my jaws; and thou hast brought me into the dust of death.

    (Psalms 22:17)  I may tell all my bones: they look and stare upon me.

    (Zechariah 12:10)  And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of supplications: and they shall look upon me whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for him, as one mourneth for his only son, and shall be in bitterness for him, as one that is in bitterness for his firstborn.

    (Zechariah 13:6)  And one shall say unto him, What are these wounds in thine hands? Then he shall answer, Those with which I was wounded in the house of my friends.

    (Psalms 16:10)  For thou wilt not leave my soul in hell; neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption.

    (Isaiah 53:1)  Who hath believed our report? and to whom is the arm of the LORD revealed?

    (Isaiah 53:3)  He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not.

    (Romans 3:25)  Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God;
    (Romans 3:26)  To declare, I say, at this time his righteousness: that he might be just, and the justifier of him which believeth in Jesus.

    (Proverbs 30:4)  Who hath ascended up into heaven, or descended? who hath gathered the wind in his fists? who hath bound the waters in a garment? who hath established all the ends of the earth? what is his name, and what is his son's name, if thou canst tell?
