Coronavirus Stimulus Agreement Expected on Tuesday After Democratic Obstruction

Democrats held up the TrumpBux over petty politics.

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.

Pelosi is Emboldened by Coronavirus Bailout, Vows to Dupe Republicans Harder Next Time

The Democrats’ socialist agenda is winning big during the coronavirus panic.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) pulled the wool over the eyes of President Donald Trump and Congressional Republicans with last week’s $2 trillion coronavirus stimulus package. The disaster relief money was earmarked for many liberal pet projects, and Pelosi aims to do the same thing for the next round of bailouts.

She said on Monday that House Democrats are already preparing another massive stimulus bill, using the coronavirus pandemic to enact more socialism. She is likely to include massive infrastructure spending and serious government intervention into the health care markets in the upcoming legislation.

“Our first bills were about addressing the emergency. The third bill was about mitigation. The fourth bill would be about recovery. Emergency, mitigation, recovery,” Pelosi said during a conference call.

“I think our country is united in not only wanting to address our immediate needs — emergency, mitigation, and the assault on our lives and livelihoods — but also, how we recover in a very positive way,” she added.

Republican leaders are up in arms about how Pelosi is exploiting a crisis to get her partisan agenda muscled through Congress, but it is unclear if they have the courage to actually stop her.

“They’re approaching it — it seems like — as an opportunity to pass their political and ideological agenda. We’re approaching it as, ‘How do we protect the public health and our economy?’ And those are pretty divergent goals,” Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX) said.

Pelosi is eager to exploit the coronavirus crisis quickly and use the panic and fear in the public as an excuse to massively increase government spending and control.

“I do think that it is really important that as soon as we are here, we are ready to pass legislation,” she said.

President Donald Trump and Congressional Republicans did Pelosi’s bidding when they moved forward a $2 trillion bailout bill that included funding for liberal policy goals that had nothing to do with the coronavirus.

Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY) sounded the alarm over the sham and attempted to get Congress to actually deliberate and vote on the bill. It instead passed on a voice vote with most legislators sequestered away from Washington D.C.

Massie’s principled stand against Pelosi’s profligate spending bill earned him a tongue lashing from President Trump, who now wants Massie replaced in Congress because he’s too conservative.

With no Republicans seemingly willing to stand up against Pelosi, there will likely be more bailout socialism on the way as the Democrats use coronavirus for their far-left power grabs.
