In what I’m sure will come as no surprise to you, the Democrats are loading up the coronavirus relief bill with goodies for their base. The $1.9 trillion bill is 591 pages long. That’s how many pages it takes for Biden & Company to give the promised $2,000 stimulus check to Americans. Oh, and the $2,000 has become $1,400.
But there is so much more in this bill, of course.
The largest conservative caucus in the House is circulating a new playbook on how to fight back against President Biden‘s $1.9 trillion coronavirus relief bill by exposing each of the ”liberal goodies” tucked inside the package.
The Republican Study Committee (RSC) authored a three-page memo to conservatives to outline “all the left-wing items Democrats are hoping the public won’t find about.” Fox News first obtained a copy of the fact sheet that is slated to be widely circulated Monday.
Among the provisions raising eyebrows among the conservatives are $1,400 stimulus checks going to mixed-status families with undocumented immigrants; allowing Planned Parenthood to receive Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) funds designed to keep small businesses afloat; and nearly $600 million for additional emergency paid family leave for federal employees and U.S. Postal Service workers, according to the RSC memo.
The memo also calls out subsidies and loan forgiveness to farmers and ranchers on the basis of race and ethnicity; allowing coronavirus funding to go to colleges that have partnerships with Chinese-controlled companies and Confucius Institutes; and doling out $50 million for environmental justice grant programs, which the RSC pans as “a thinly-veiled kickback to leftist environmental groups.”
And here’s how I feel about this…
Unfortunately, although we COTR followers didn’t vote for this steaming pile of crap known as the Democrat agenda, WAY TOO MANY Americans did.
So, we are in fact going to get what we deserve and reap what we sow as a nation over the next four years. We can only hope and pray that the damage is minimized and reversible. Most importantly, hopefully the American people will wake up over the next four years and see the Democrats for the left-wing radicals they have become.
