Guy Benson tweeted that he learned from a senior GOP aid that the Democrats wanted three things in the stimulus package intended to assist the country during the economic shock caused by the reaction to the coronavirus:
1) Unprecedented collective bargaining powers for unions
2) Increased fuel emissions standards for airlines
3) Expansion of wind and solar tax credits
“I can confirm this. This is what Democrats torpedoed the rescue package for. This will go down as one of the most cynical, disgusting, malevolent actions in history. Millions are losing jobs while they play these games.”
As for the GOP, their original proposal gave them wide latitude through the Treasury department in determining who received bailout bucks and the terms of the cash.
Everybody wants their piece. Let’s hope there’s a little bit left over for the people who will eventually have to foot the bill… taxpayers.
