House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Senate minority leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY), two of the most sinister people in Congress, have given indications that they are willing to increase the amount of money for the stimulus checks that go to American workers who have been harmed, not just by the Chinese coronavirus, but by Democrat governors and mayors who have needlessly closed down small businesses putting millions out of work. The Democrat leadership cared not one iota about working families until President Donald Trump threatened to veto the COVID Relief Bill unless the direct payment was increased to $2,000 per individual or $4,000 per couple. The president read off many of the wasteful spendings in the bill that looked like a Democrat wish list of “vote for me” goodies that have nothing to do with COVID-19 relief for Americans.
Of course, they are willing to increase the amount of working families. What other choice do they have? Does anyone really think they want Trump to continue reading down the list of disgraceful line items for spending to foreign countries and for liberal government enterprises that aren’t even open for business? The very fact that they appropriated up to 1,800 dollars to illegal aliens, who are in the country illegally, and are not citizens, then only one-third of that to American citizens is enough to throw all of them out of office even before the next election. Torches and pitchforks style. What a disgrace these political ideologies are.
“Republicans repeatedly refused to say what amount the President wanted for direct checks. At last, the President has agreed to $2,000—Democrats are ready to bring this to the Floor this week by unanimous consent. Let’s do it!” Pelosi said on social media on Tuesday.
Schumer took to social media not long after Pelosi posted her bullschtein lies.
“We spent months trying to secure $2,000 checks but Republicans blocked it. Trump needs to sign the bill to help people and keep the government open and we’re glad to pass more aid Americans need. Maybe Trump can finally make himself useful and get Republicans not to block it again.”
It is unforgivable that the Democrats are now blaming Republicans. It is the Democrats whop added all the billions of dollars of pork spending for their liberal wishlist items, that American workers are going to have to pay for in rising tax rates.
We reported on a message Trump gave via video where he pretty much threatened to veto the $2.3 trillion omnibus spending and COVID relief bill.
“Congress found plenty of money for foreign countries, lobbyists, and special interests,” the president said, “while sending the bare minimum to the American people who need it.”
“It wasn’t their fault. It was China’s fault.”
The president told lawmakers that they need to send him a reworked bill that rises to his own standards or the next administration will have to deal with it.
“And maybe that administration will be me,” he added. God willing it will be.
The president read off hundreds of millions of dollars earmarked for foreign countries over things that have nothing whatsoever to do with COVID. Cambodia, Burma, get millions of dollars. Gender programs in Pakistan? What on Lucifer’s black beach possessed them to include that? Trump pointed out that the Democrats gave $1.2 billion to the Egyptian military, which will almost exclusively purchase from Russia. I thought Democrats hated Russia.
A number of members of Congress Monday night complained that they didn’t have enough time to look through the approximately 5,500-page bill.
Trump cited tens of millions of dollars going to DC organizations like the Kennedy Center and the National Gallery of Arts, and the Smithsonian, and that NONE of them are even open for business!
“The president pointed out there was $25 million to combat Asian carp. They won’t lift a finger to combat the communist Chinese takeover of our country, but they dole out $25 million over a fish?”
$2.5 million to go toward counting the number of Amberjack fish in the Gulf of Mexico. Do the fish have COVID?
The president said he would veto the bill because stimulus payments are being doled out to “illegal aliens” and their families. He mentioned illegals under the bill get up to $1,800 while American workers get only $600.
The president can do a pocket veto at this point, which is if the Congress is to adjourn within a specific timeframe, the president doesn’t have to do a thing, the bill would just die via pocket veto. We are now within that Constitutionally prescribed time limit.
“Despite all of this wasteful spending, the $900 billion packages provides hardworking taxpayers only $600 [to Americans] in relief payments,” Trump said, making the case that the amount clearly is not enough and that not enough was done to help small business owners who have suffered during the pandemic lockdowns.
The Democrats did the small business lockdowns so tyrannically in an effort to defund the Republican Party because small business is the backbone of the GOP. At the same time, the Democrat eloquently made it so that their generous billionaire friends made out like bandits. It was reported that Jeff Bezos, who owns Amazon.com and the Washington Post, made an additional $70 billion because of the pandemic lockdowns. What the Democrats did to the American people is criminal and this bill was like rubbing dog dirt in their faces.
The big question that no mainstream news media hack will ask is, doesn’t anyone really believe that a President Joe Biden would ever stand up for the American workers the way just did here? Of course not.
