House Democrats will introduce a sprawling plan to blunt the economic damage from the coronavirus pandemic as efforts to pass a bill in the Senate hit roadblocks Monday. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said her caucus would unveil legislation Monday that takes responsibility for the health, wages and well-being of Americas workers. It would include, according to a statement from the California Democrat:
Requirements that corporations getting bailout money shield workers wages and benefits, and limits on CEO compensation, stock buybacks and layoffs.
Direct payments to Americans, along with expanded paid family and medical leave.
Grants and loans to small businesses.
Strengthened unemployment insurance.
Increased funding for hospitals and tougher safety standards for health-care workers.
Language urging President Donald Trump to invoke the Defense Production Act to manufacture more health-care supplies.
$40 billion in funding for schools and universities along with student debt relief.
More funding for the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program and other food assistance programs.
State election grants and a national requirement for 15 days of early voting and no-excuse absentee voting as fears grow about coronavirus spreading at crowded polling sites.
Stimulus for Planned Butcherhood, Union Grifters, Illegal Aliens, Green New Dole...........................
This touch hole of a bill with all of its pork will be amended all to hell in the senate.Never to pass.
Who cares? We do not need a 2 Trillion dollar deficit. And the Nov. election will get rid of most of these lefty scourges.
Why? Anybody else get their debt reduced with free money? Why not?
This turd is probably 2500 pages of Grade A USDA Certified Pork.
Yep. GOP needs to keep the focus on the senate bill.
Democrat pork. DOA in the Senate. If not, then a veto.
What the Covid-19 is for China, so are the RATs for the US.
The RATS should name themselves ‘the American virus’.
My senator just exposed the jackass party wanting to take over corporation boards and not allowing them any stock buy-backs for the next decade (regardless if they take money or not), $15 minimum wage, fully-funding endowment of the arts, millions toward solar, and more pork for everything they want. All this just to create another huge bureaucracy.
“Language urging President Donald Trump to invoke the Defense Production Act to manufacture more health-care supplies.”
Since they’ve acknowledged that power, he should use it, if they continue these games, to reopen businesses shuttered by the little Napoleons running several of the States.
A Great Depression will lead to poverty, then despair, suicides, murders and wars. I’ve modeled it, so it must be true. If just one life is saved, it’s worth any cost to prevent it.
Blue Monday. Thanks Democrats, for playing politics while were grappling with a pandemic.
Here is whats needed to defeat this virus.
Start getting rid of politicians...especially democRATS.
so what happened with the Senate vote?
There is nothing ‘American’ about them......................
Reconciliation bill failed for want of a GOP majority.
Of course, the Dirty Dems would want $40 BILLION to universities. They are the hatcheries for the next generation of Communists. They can see it in our future.
How about just scrap the whole thing? Screw it. If they’re going to do nothing but bicker about it and most of it is just pork and pet projects having nothing to do with helping people hosed by this Chicom generated mess. Give them all a baby cap and rattle and change their diapers. Hell, most of them are old and senile enough to be back in diapers again anyhow. Case in point, Nancy Pelosi and their presumptive nominee for Chomo in Chief.
The DC bunch are proving once again that they are basically a bunch of spoiled toddlers.
Trump should “invite” all the relevant parties: Scummer, Pelousy, and Mitch up to the white house and put it on TV saying, ok, lets be transparent, I want a save the economy bill and I want it agreed right here and now. When Scummer and Pelousy get up, bar the door.
