Never let a crisis go to waste I suppose. Nancy Pelosi is taking that moniker to heart with her latest “relief” proposal in the House. She’s presented a bill that’s so chocked full of pork that it’d make Memphis jealous.
If you are a liberal, there’s a little bit of everything in the bill. Giveaways to abortion providers? It’s in there. Bailouts for blue states to cover shortfalls prior to the virus? Affirmative on that. Money for illegal immigrants and “healthcare inequity?” Yep on that front as well.
Here’s a segment on Tucker Carlson’s show that does a good job of breaking down some of the idiocy being proposed.

There’s even a bailout for the Post Office, which was already heading toward collapse before the pandemic. What’s not in the bill is much that would actually help average Americans.
For example, Democrats seek to extend unemployment through January, but all that would do is ensure an economic collapse, as it would turn the labor market upside down. Further, Pelosi is pushing to bring back the SALT tax deduction, which only benefits rich people in blue states.
Republicans should scoff at this and they already are.

Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has already signaled he’s not bringing up this garbage legislation if it makes it to the Senate. That’s the right move. There’s very little for Republicans to gain by going along with Pelosi and much more to lose, not to mention it wouldn’t be good for the country in general.
This bill is a joke. Period. It does show how absolutely terrible Democrat politicians are though. They are seeking to use a global pandemic to push their pet projects, crushing the country’s economy in the process. They don’t care about people. They care about garnering an underclass that hands them perpetual power, nothing more.
