One thing has become apparent. Nancy Pelosi’s stimulus bill contains more pork than Anna navarro’s dress.
She is even increasing the money to be spent supplying people with Obamaphones, $300 million to pay for refugees settling in other countries and a fistful full of money for Planned Parenthood.
There are so many expenditures in this bill unrelated to the DTMNBN (Disease That Must Not Be named) that it could rightly be described by numerous other names.
Unfortunately, I can’t share those names with you because this is a family site.
But things could get sticky for the Democrats real quick. Both Chuck Schumer and Trump’s negotiator Steve Mnuchin say that they are very close to a deal and they may vote on it as early as today. Should that happen, what will Pelosi do?
If she goes along with it, she could be roadkill with the far left in her party and if she rejects it, she could be dooming the Democratic party in the 2020 elections.
I could almost feel sorry for her but I’m not that big of a liar. I never lie but I’m not above making a story more interesting.
In this case, I don’t even have to do that.
The bill proposed by Pelosi, D-Calif., additionally seeks to eliminate debt held by the U.S. Postal Service, require same-day voter registration, pay off $10,000 in student debt per person, mandate that airlines reduce their overall carbon emissions by 50 percent by 2050, and force federal agencies to explain to Congress how they are increasing their usage of “minority banks.”
And, the legislation would provide for the automatic extension of nonimmigrant visas and restrict colleges from providing information about citizenship status. It would also allocate $35 million to the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts.
“People are dying and all Nancy Pelosi and Democrats can focus on is ripping off the American taxpayer to help pay for their liberal wish list of government handouts,” National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) spokesman Michael McAdams said in a statement.
“As long as the White House keeps the checkbook open, Democrats will keep taking things,” a senior Senate GOP leadership source told Fox News late Monday.
The NRCC went on to accuse Pelosi of cramming the bill “full of unrelated liberal goodies, including a return of the ‘Obamaphone.'” Pelosi, the NRCC pointed out, wants $1 billion “to build on program expanded by President Obama that provides discounted phone service for low-income consumers.”
