House GOP fights back against Pelosi-backed COVID-19 ‘stimulus’

The GOP continues its fight against special interest projects within the $1.9 trillion COVID-19 stimulus package, while Democrats accuse Republicans of more “misinformation.”

Upon closer inspection, Republicans on the House Budget Committee voted against the package, noting the bill includes just eight percent of its spending toward COVID-19 relief. Instead, the real “stimulus” focuses on left-leaning unions, activist groups, and government entities.

Yet Democrat House Budget Committee Chairman John Yarmouth argues:

“We have also been subjected to a lot of misinformation and partisan spin. What’s true is this: The virus has already killed more than 500,000 Americans. Workers, families, small businesses, and communities across the country are counting on the relief in President Biden’s American Rescue Plan to survive these crises, and they can’t afford to wait.”

Interesting how Americans could afford to wait through Pelosi’s standoff throughout 2020 to halt a second stimulus plan, but now they cannot. Also notice how the response to political payback items in the stimulus bill is answered by, “What’s true is…” thta lots of people have died from COVID-19.

Answering an accusation with an unrelated answer doesn’t fix the left’s wasteful stimulus bill. It only seeks to further hide it from the American people.

For example, the current stimulus plan includes over $100 million for a Silicon Valley transit expansion project. I think Americans can “wait” on that one.

Or what about $50 million for environmental justice grants? Not kidding. It’s in there, along with $135 million for the National Endowment of Arts, as apparently art will somehow magically solve COVID-19.

What Democrats don’t want to admit is that the COVID-19 stimulus plan was an easy way to pass legislation to fund all of their favorite projects without Americans noticing. The only problem is that people are noticing.

Now the left has to argue we “can’t wait.” If we’re waiting for a bill that actually helps Americans recover from the pandemic, I believe we can.

Agree with Maura, we can certainly wait for the pittance $1400 “give me” that the Democrats and Left in general think we will prostitute ourselves for a couple of collars that, for me will just about pay my utilities for ONE MONTH! All the while they are padding the payments for NON AMERICANS, opening up the borders so we can support more people that are not working and who will bring more Covid into the country for our medical facilities and workers to take care of. WHEN IS EVERYONE GOING TO REALIZE THAT WE ARE NOT FALLING FOR THE LIES!

““We have also been subjected to a lot of misinformation and partisan spin. What’s true is this: The virus has already killed more than 500,000 Americans.”

No, what is true is THIS: Nasty Nancy and her cohort of conniving Demmunists have loaded EVERY Communist wish list item they could THINK of into this bill–INCLUDING bailouts for Demmunist mayors and governors to fix what they sat back and ALLOWED Antifa and BLM to destroy! Why should we, the people pay for ANY of that? And PS: Most of those 500,000 + Americans who died DID so because they were unfortunate enough to live in cities and states run by CLUELESS Demmunists like Andrew Cuomo and that INSANE power-mad governor from Michigan. NO amount of money is going to make those clueless Dems either competent, or make them actually give a DAMN about the rest of us!

The only thing in this COVID-19 bill is what pertains ONLY to COVID related help. And unspent moneys from prior bills must be now negated and used in this help for the people. All other bills included in this COVID bill MUST BE REMOVED PRIOR TO ANY VOTING OR NO VOTE SHOULD OCCUR UNTIL THEY ARE REMOVED. Those things are not necessary at this time or any other time in the future. They are only for the congressman and woman’s per projects. All per projects MUST be DROPPED FOREVER!! Many seem to be in a conflict of interest with the lawmakers.

Sad to see how many of our Congress is about SELF POWER AND MONEY. Nancy Chuck and Maxine. Is just some of the greed that abuses the system. You the people are suppose to work and help the United States of America’s. We as this country is suppose to be first and foremost. But you won’t to handout and give our needs or sell this country to others.
I really think your time is up in the office because it’s all about you you and you. There are so many people that has lost there jobs because of y’all in that office there loss of homes loss of being able to provide for there family’s. Because of y’all. It’s time to take a stand people and get them out of that office for people that are willing and able to help this country first.
We need them to be charged with abusing power. And treason if anyway possible. So how about them republicans and some of the democratic pull together to get their butts out of there.

What I would tell Rep Yarmouth, take out all the CRAP that has nothing to do with the “Covid” bill like the endowment for the arts, all the money for the teachers and other unions, the bail out money for the bankrupt states like NY, Cal, IL and NJ and the Covid bill will get approved. This is common Democratic practice, they always pack spending bills with all kinds of garbage and all at taxpayer expense. The Democrats do not really care for the AMERICAN people, their concerns are for all those huge donors who keep them in office. I used to be a Democrat until I started seeing what they really stand for, they are despicable and disgusting.

The only stimulus that can really help the people is the action by the people. Do the government officials want to help? If so the stimulus needed is simple — stop the lockdowns, open the schools and if the teachers don’t want to teach fire them and hire someone who wants to teach reading, writing and ‘rithmatic. I don’t think we need “certified teachers” to teach the basics. If you are a parent you have been teaching your kids the fundamentals, (and more) long before leftist teachers got their grimy hands on them. Parents, keep teaching your kids and make them think so they become critical thinkers. Also, don’t forget to debrief your kids when they come home from school, so you can erase the propaganda they are fed by the communist school system. This means you have to find out what they are being taught outside the three “r’s”. They are your kids, TAKE THEM BACK BEFORE YOU LOSE THEM.
Stop the mask craze, if you want to stimulate society. The use of masks is insanity. And if it isn’t don’t ever take them off because there is always a prevalent corona virus present, IT IS CALLED THE FLU!!!!!!
Lastly, PEOPLE, start acting like free people, not drones for the commie democrats and RINOS. Start now before the cost of doing so become too great for you to dare to act like a free American Citizen.

I will call my congressman and tell them that if they sign for this bill. They will not be re-elected. Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats are looking for things that don’t even give the American people relief. Maybe for now. But they will have to pay, higher taxes, down the line. Listen to this. It’s time the GOP stand up to these people that are not complying to the U.S. Constitution, but trying to change it.

President Trump was treated horribly by these evil vile racist criminals known as democrats, but at least I felt like he was in charge & knew what he was doing during his Presidency.
