    • Watched Alicia Acuna “spar” with with Dem. Congressman about the Republicans to blame for the stimulus delay, stating they’re so close to making a deal but Mnuchin keeps rejecting it. We know that it is more about issues than money with Pelosi wanting to bail out NY, Calif, etc; with not money for businesses but benefits for illegals….she never once challenged him on the issues. Not the Fox News I have been loyal to for twenty years or more!!
