House of Representatives Passes Families First Coronavirus Response Act

(Washington, D.C.) – The United States House of Representatives today passed H.R. 6201, the Families First Coronavirus Response Act, to provide support for Missouri families as the coronavirus continues to spread and businesses close.

The legislation passed by a vote of 363-40, with Congressman Emanuel Cleaver, II (D-MO) voting to support the bill.

“As we have seen this week, COVID-19 presents a legitimate threat to the safety and economic security of the American people,” said Congressman Cleaver. “Tonight, the House of Representatives put families first by ensuring every American can obtain free testing for the virus, paid leave so they can self-quarantine, extended unemployment insurance in case they have been furloughed, and strengthened nutrition programs to keep food on the table. As this legislation moves to the Senate, it’s critical that we put partisanship aside and the American people first.”

The Families First Coronavirus Response Act is the second major action taken by the House of Representatives to combat the spread of coronavirus, following the passage of an $8.3 billion emergency supplemental aid package passed last week. Today’s bill includes:

- Free coronavirus testing for everyone who needs a test, including Americans who are uninsured.
- Paid emergency leave, including up to 14 days of paid sick leave and up to three months of paid family and medical leave.
- Enhanced unemployment insurance, which will extend protections for workers who have been furloughed due to the coronavirus.
- Strengthened food security programs, including SNAP, student meals, seniors’ nutrition and food banks.

The bill will now go to the United States Senate for a vote next week.

Emanuel Cleaver, II is the U.S. Representative for Missouri's Fifth Congressional District, which includes Kansas City, Independence, Lee's Summit, Raytown, Grandview, Sugar Creek, Blue Springs, Grain Valley, Oak Grove, North Kansas City, Gladstone, Claycomo, and all of Ray, Lafayette, and Saline Counties. He is a member of the exclusive House Financial Services Committee; Chairman of the House Subcommittee on National Security, International Development, and Monetary Policy; member of the Select Committee on the Modernization of Congress; member of the Committee on Homeland Security; and a Senior Whip of the Democratic Caucus

“Strengthened food security programs, including SNAP, student meals, seniors’ nutrition and food banks.”

This thing was loaded with more crap unrelated to the wuhan virus then anything else, the dimwits are effing out of control.

1:26 here’s the number of times Barry played golf.

The 306 rounds over eight years averages out to a little more than 38 rounds a year, which is well above the national average of 19.3, according to figures provided by the National Golf Foundation (NGF).

#1 was Woodrow Wilson who played 1200 rounds of golf followed by Dwight Eisenhower with 800 rounds. Trump probably won’t play as many rounds as Barry due to his age so....

Barry liked to play so he could get away from crack whore Michelle

KC democrats more regressive sales tax increases.

Will those businesses down at P&L and sprint district send KCMO a bill for all the revenue lost during this crisis? Just wondering.

I'm glad someone is doing their job. Democrats in the House are the only ones acting with urgency and taking this seriously.

Blunt, Hawley, Moran and Roberts decided to take a 3 day weekend, instead of taking up this bill immediately. Trump refused to take part in the Congressional negotiations and doesn't know what to do. Every single GOP member of the government needs to go in November.

O.K. this is funny! Cleaver caring about families first???? NO Cleaver cares about his pockets first anyone who doesn't know that is an IDIOT! Hopefully this guy will lose come election time. But then again liberals love partners in crime even when he rips them off and they are too stupid to see that, not once but for years.

4:13 you’re a lyin dog faced pony soldier.

It goes to the senate next week where all the b.s. the dimwits want that’s not coronavirus related gets thrown out. Trump was the reason it got passed in the house to begin with, grow up child.

4:17 I wonder in the “wuhan Bill” if the cleave put 18th and vine in there somewhere, After all, his 23 hand picked board members still need Escalade money! Hahahahaha!

Trump's Scorecard said...

Since we are back to lying about golf...

Trump, who promised he would be too busy to play golf, has played 249 rounds so far and is on track to play more in 4 years than Obama did in 8.

He plays with his business cronies to make make backroom deals.

Past presidents paid on courses located at military bases. Trump flies to his country clubs so he can bill the government for his expenses. He has spent 1/3 of his presidency at one of his resorts and billing the government while selling access to club members.

Rep. Debbie Lesko (R-AZ) on Thursday sounded the alarm on Speaker Nancy Pelosi's desire to jam the bill through.

"Speaker Pelosi is trying to push through a partisan bill on coronavirus funding, which is an important issue that we all care about. The bad thing is she didn't talk to Republicans or the president about it and they're trying to sneak in all these provisions that Democrats want that have nothing to do with the coronavirus and that will cost taxpayers billions of dollars," Lesko said in a video.

Only paloosie could fuck up such a simple bill, shocked she didn’t say you have to pass it to see what it is, god that old loose dentures, depends wearing psychopath lying, cheatin crook needs to go.

Retro, I’m pretty sure they hope he wins because they are going to make him pick a woman for vp, if elected they’ll toss his ass for the “woman vp”, one conspiracy theory is Hillary Clinton.....

Lesko is a liar. Nancy requested negotiating with the President. He refused. He's still carrying a childish grudge over impeachment. a fucking baby in the White House. The senate went on vacation, so fuck them too.

Is there a plan in place for Hisoner's CAR WASH? Now who is DUMB enough to think that bunch of GRIFTERS in congress can save them?

Anonymous said...

Or the GRIFTING family in the White House that can't make a profit from a CASINO and files 6 bankruptcies and bills the government for trips to play golf at his country clubs and hotels.

Cleaver's only fault is thinking small. Go big. Hundreds of million$$$ is the game, fool. Get the whole extended family involved. Sons and daughters, son-in-law, current mistresses...
