Congress Stalls Stimulus As They Fight Over Goodies: Dems Want Unions and Renewable Energy

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.

    I am fed up with Pelosi’s trying to stop the virus package to help citizens. Nothing should be in that money but help for citizens and legal people.
    Every time Pelosi comes up with this crap she is giving Trump more votes, that’s the only thing I like.
    Holding the money up is killing people.
    God Bless Trump
    Trump 2020
    At least he is doing something.
    Thank God for the wall

      I agree that this is unconscionable on the part of the Democrats, but the Republicans have their own pork in the mix. In addition to their concern for corporations over actual working people, pet projects such as funding for abstinence education are present. Politicians on both sides have lost sight of their responsibility, and somehow see this as an opportunity to further their individual agendas. Really pathetic.

    What the hell is wrong with Democrats – the people are worried about money, losing jobs, not being able to pay the bills and they are arguing about solar energy, unions, etc. They should all be fired, tared and feathered. Geez, have they no sense of decency?
    I wish they were in the same position as their constituents; worried where their next meal is coming from, no job, and possibly losing their home.
    This is why they should never be in power. What a bunch of children.

    This bill should not be about PORK! You are there to help America get through a very difficult time not add worthless crap so you can try to get re-elected. I probably won’t see any of this money because I’ve been fighting to get my disability from my states retirement system and I’ve had no income for five years!

    The Democrats are trying to make it where you have to belong to a Union to work, terrible when they vote for things the workers do not support. They do not care about thepeople are would pass the Republican bill and fight for the things they are advocating later. What does uions, air plane admissions , and solar payments have to do with now. Hope they lose many votes over these action. Polesi is a horrior

    What a bunch of corrupt rats! And San Francisco and her cohorts in Congress keep pushing Nancy on us with her, not unkindly meant – perhaps beginnings of dementia, and otherwise thirst for power and savvy use of our tax dollars to buy votes for the Democratic Party. Honestly, that woman and Divider in Chief needs to go home and if she has “anything left” spend it on restoring her own city to the place and beauty it possessed when she left for DC!!!

    The demonKrats are absolutely unhinged with these non essential requests to help Americans that are layed off due to this terrible virus! I think 2 things about what they want, one is whatever they can do to damage our President the most and the other thing looking for ways to pad their own pockets with kickbacks! These evil heathen POS’S should be thrown out of our Government or better yet tried and hung for being traitors!

    Why don’t we give Unions more power to steal more money from the little guys. We can line the Union Bosses pockets – can we hope that they get to experience this first hand – maybe we can get some sensible package passed.

    Typical Democratic move. They have always lied to us and used us to get our taxpayers money to give to their cronies in exchange for votes. Quid pro Quo? I think so. Vote straight Republican ticket in November to keep the greatness going.

    This is right wing propaganda. The GOP wants to push for corporate bailouts while the Democrats as usual are
    pushing for a bottom up economic program. Give the money to the people who will spend it on needed goods and
    services rather than to corporations who will use it to buy back their stock to raise it’s value and provide huge paydays
    for their CEO’s just as they did with the last bailout.

    Nancy is on a power trip. She has no regard for the American people at all,. The things she is trying to do at this time is appalling since she likely thinks that no one will pay attention to what she tries to slip into these bills. Hopefully she will not be re-elected this year. All of those lifelong politicians need to go. Their goal is NOT to help the American people but to pad their pockets. I sincerely hope that the people in Congress who sold stock when the heard that the prices would go down will be prosecuted.

    The Democrats should get nothing! Do not cave to their treasonous, Un-American tactics. We need to stand strong and shut them down once and for all.
    The Democrats have proven they are self centered with an agenda to benefit themselves. They lie, cheat and steal to make themselves and their constituents richer with no regard for the American citizens and the United States of America. The American citizens are fed up with their deceit. Shame on them all. Pelosi, Schumer, Nadler and their puppets in Congress and the Senate. There is a special place in hell for the likes of them.

    It does not matter, who wins – Democratic or Republican.
    At the end of the day, Corporations win and taxpayers loses. Who is going to foot $2 T bill. Tax payers.
    Also seniors who govt is trying to protect lose more. Why? Most seniors become risk averse as they try to manage their retirement income. Most rely on GIC and saving accounts to create retirement income. Since last 2008 crisis, interest rates have been historically low. That is boon to rich. They borrow at cheap rates and invest in stock market or real estate. The boom we saw in Market was caused by this. It burst and again it will help rich. Cycle will just repeat till next cycle. The real question is how long this will go on? Must the capitalism end like communist.
