Negotiations between Democratic Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin on a coronavirus stimulus package appear to be making progress, with both parties expecting to reach agreement on a final package Tuesday.
Mnuchin called President Donald Trump during the negotiations, updating him on the progress the parties were making. The two men explained to Hill reporters that they expect a formal agreement on the stimulus package Tuesday morning, and a vote on the proposal later in the day.
The stimulus package is expected to entail cash payments of $1,200 for every American to inject resources into the economy. Some have likened the basic income payments as ‘TrumpBux.’
Small businesses will be provided with $350 billion in loans that aren’t expected to be paid back, allowing them to stay open and continue meeting payroll in a time where everyday commerce and life is severely disrupted. The final stimulus package largely seems to resemble the plan Mitch McConnell brought up.
The stimulus in total will place more than $2 trillion into the hands of various businesses and middle-class Americans. The TrumpBux proposal is means-tested, with Americans who reported more than $100,000 in income on their 2018 tax return not receiving the money.
Nancy Pelosi and Senate Democrats tanked the original relief package on Sunday, citing a desire to introduce their own set of pet projects into the package that are totally unrelated to the economic damage caused by the coronavirus.
The prospect of a deal that passes Congress appears likely. But Republican negotiators can’t ignore the possibility of childish tricks from Democrats, who could aim to pose as willing negotiators before pulling out the rug and making a lavish new set of demands for their preference for the stimulus package.
If Schumer proves to be perfidious on his commitment towards a stimulus package, his party will reckon with the prospect of holding up desperate required TrumpBux and economic relief for small business in pursuit of their own vain political aims.
‘Let Them Be Free!’: Marjorie Taylor Greene Urges Trump to Pardon Edward Snowden and Julian Assange for Exposing ‘the Crimes of Barack Obama and the Deep State’
This is what real conservative leadership is all about.
Soon-to-be Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia is joining a movement urging President Donald Trump to pardon NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden and Wikileaks founder Julian Assange for opposing deep state corruption.
Greene made the declaration with a Twitter post on Thanksgiving night:
Each risked his life to expose the crimes of Barack Obama and the Deep State against the American people.
— Marjorie Taylor Greene 🇺🇸 (@mtgreenee) November 27, 2020
Greene made the comment in reference to a renewed push from Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) for President Trump to pardon Snowden and Assange.
“Since you’re giving pardons to people, please consider pardoning those who, at great personal sacrifice, exposed the deception and criminality of those in the deep state,” the iconoclastic progressive lawmaker wrote in a tweet.
“Brave whistleblowers exposing lies & illegal actions in our government must be protected,” Gabbard wrote in a Twitter post accompanying a video recording earlier this year. “Join me and urge Congress: Pass my bipartisan legislation (HRes1162, HRes1175, HR8452) calling for charges against @snowden & Assange to be dropped & to reform the Espionage Act.”
Big League Politics has reported extensively on Greene’s bold approach that completely rejects the conventional wisdom of the Washington D.C. swamp on a wide variety of issues, particularly foreign policy:
New York Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio Cortez tried to get sassy on Twitter in light of the recent drama regarding election regularities taking place across the nation.
Due to this, President Donald Trump has not conceded the election and is waiting for the courts to settle any kind of irregularities at polling locations in key swing states. This obviously has Democrats and their media allies fuming over Trump’s steadfast devotion for the rule of law and election integrity.
One of the most outspoken critics of Trump’s decision to not concede has been AOC. She tweeted on November 10, 2020, “I hope people realize that the same Republicans who are refusing to acknowledge the results of our elections also champion disastrous foreign policy claiming they’re ‘bringing democracy’ to other nations.”
AOC’s comment was met with immediate backlash after incoming Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene offered her two cents on the matter. The new congresswoman for Georgia’s 4th District tweeted “You voted for @JoeBiden who voted for the Iraq War, which cost America trillions of dollars and thousands of lives.”
… Greene was specifically calling out AOC for her hypocritical behavior of voting for a candidate that was one of the most seasoned proponents of foreign adventuring and a big booster of the defense industry. Certain officials from defense contractors such as Raytheon CEO Gregory Hayes have stated that a Biden presidency would not entertain any form of defense cuts whatsoever. Biden is the consummate political insider and AOC’s support for him belies her marketing as an outsider.
Greene is showing how the Republican Party should be shifting with Trump at the helm. Greene’s rise represents a populist, anti-establishment GOP that rejects neocon usurpers like former South Carolina governor Nikki Haley and Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX).
