Treacherous leftists put their partisan agenda ahead of the needs of Americans as financial markets collapse
Rejecting a $1.6 trillion economic relief package bill intended to provide aid to Americans in the wake of the unprecedented global Wuhan Coronavirus pandemic that is immobilizing our nation, Senate Democrats instead stuffed it full of their pet projects. The bill contained the leftist manipulation of election day voter registration and mentions diversity more than 60 times relating to filling positions based on race and disability status that have nothing to do with the virus aid package. Automatic renewal of work permits for foreign nationals also takes center stage, as does climate activism and wiping out student loan debt — an obvious attempt to garner the youth vote. The Dem package also includes unrelated tax breaks for wind and solar energy projects and stringent emission reduction requirements for the already ailing airline industry. The Dems even tried to slip federal abortion funding into the bill.
Democrat Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (NY) even went so far as to hold up $50 billion in farm aid provisions, a key part of President Trump’s stimulus package. Democrat House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (CA) has no concept of acting in a bi-partisan manner even when we are faced with a calamity of immense portions. Americans are self-quarantining, jobs are lost as businesses shutter, schools are closed and grocery shelves look like they were attacked by ravaging locusts. The financial markets that were spectacularly soaring since President Trump’s 2016 election are now in free fall.
Republican Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (KY) warned this morning that the “clock has run out” for “bargaining” on the third phase of a Coronavirus response package, urging Congress to pass legislation “today.”
“This is a national crisis. It’s the most serious threat to Americans’ health in over a century and quite likely the greatest risk to American jobs and prosperity that we’ve seen since the Great Depression,” he said. “The urgency and gravity in this moment cannot be lost on anyone.
Yet leftist obstructionism, ignoring the needs of the American people, is focused on attempting to ram through key portions of Bernie Sanders socialist agenda, minus the defeated presidential candidate.
Democrats should be ashamed, but that is obviously not an attribute they possess.
