Posted on 08/08/2020 1:26:20 AM PDT by John Semmens
President Trump's effort to break the Congressional deadlock on the next iteration of coronavirus relief by threatening to issue an Executive Order has Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-NY) incensed. "His insistence that the coronavirus relief bill be focused on stimulating the economy after it was shut down to slow the spread of the contagion is too narrow," he said. "We want to include bailouts for states that have crippled their economies with reckless spending and high taxes. There are hundreds of thousands of government employees in my state who could face layoffs, pay cuts, or deferred pensions if federal taxpayers don't pick up the tab."
"We also want to get a head start on the Green New Deal by appropriating funds that the next Democratic president will need to transform the nation from the fossil-fueled prosperity foisted on the American people by Trump," Schumer added. "This will put us back on the trajectory of decline that former President Obama set in motion. It's time that Americans reduce their expectations and adjust to lower standards of living. Rather than aspiring to join the ranks of the rich and powerful, it would be better for Americans to take their place among the masses of the world who live more modest lifestyles."
"Not only does Trump reject our aims, his main objectivegranting a payroll tax cutunduly rewards those who work for a living," the Senator complained. "It's long past the time when we should get over the notion that work is a virtue that entitles a person to a better standard of living than his non-working neighbor. This is rank discrimination and we will sue to overturn any Executive Order that seeks such an outcome."
