President Donald Trump made clear last week that he would not sign the $900 billion Wuhan coronavirus relief bill that passed in both chambers of Congress. He said he wanted Congress to get rid of the wasteful pork spending found in the bill and bump direct cash payments up to $2,000 per person, up from the $600 both chambers agreed to.
Democrats, like Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (NY) and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (CA), have said they would be more than willing to up the direct cash payment amount. But others, like Sen. Bernie Sanders (VT), said Trump needs to sign the bill and Congress would then work to increase the amount each American receives.
Congress seems to be waiting for the president to sign the bill even though Trump has threatened to outright veto it.
Actress Kirstie Alley, a well-known Hollywood celebrity and supporter of President Trump, on Sunday had a suggestion of her own: keep Congress from being paid for six months and give each American $1,000.
Here’s my bill.... it has 2 items. Congress takes no pay for 6 months. Americans receive $1,000 a month for 6 months. End of Bill— Kirstie Alley (@kirstiealley) December 27, 2020
While she was on the topic of politics, she also addressed the issue of multiple genders.
Time to resolve this issue also.— Kirstie Alley (@kirstiealley) December 27, 2020
There are two genders in the human species, male & female. What you do to alter your adult genitalia is up to you..however, don’t expect an award for your decision, anymore than I expect an award for keeping my vag in tact. Next issue?
She seems pretty open to addressing other issues. Both of her proposals and takes are something most Americans can agree with.
