The Democrats are up to their old tricks again. Nasty Nancy Pelosi and the House Dems have drawn up their own bill for another round of stimulus money.
I meant it when I said that it was Pelosi and the Democrats. Republicans weren't invited to be a part of the bill. What example are they setting? What are they telling us about their agenda?
The bill will be voted upon on Friday and I'll guarantee this will pass the House and drop dead in the Senate. No doubt about it. Then they'll try and blame the Republicans for not passing this bill that they've worked "so hard" on. It's all a show.
One of the items in the new bill is another round of checks for everyone up to $6,000 per household. It would be like the first round with $1,200 per person and $500 per child.
It would also extend the $600 addition to the unemployment benefits all the way through January.
The bill also includes one of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's stupid ideas of allocating $175 billion to “address the ongoing needs of homeowners struggling to afford their housing due directly or indirectly to the impacts of the pandemic by providing direct assistance with mortgage payments, property taxes, property insurance, utilities, and other housing related costs.”
There is also $200 billion allocated to go to "essential workers" who are on the front line during this pandemic as a form of hazard pay. I agree that they should get hazard pay, but I don't think that this is the way it should be done.
House Republicans are deeply skeptical of the bill, in a sign Democrats may have to go it alone on this round of legislation -- and that it faces long odds in the GOP-led Senate. House GOP Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., blasted Pelosi for trying to draft another bill while Congress is still on recess.
"Now she wants to write a $3 trillion bill, with no one able to see, no accountability, and no input," McCarthy told Fox News on Monday. "I mean, this is not how democracy works. This is a real concern to all of us this won't ever become law, but it'll be the wishlist of the liberals, to try to change election law, fund Planned Parenthood, and make sure sanctuary cities get the chunk of the money.”
I know the Senate Republicans feel the same way and they don't see the need for another $3 trillion either.
