House Democrats Unanimously Approve PRIDE ACT Giving Reparations to Certain LGBT Members

The PRIDE Act will give new handouts to homosexual couples.

Published

on

Last week, Democrats in the U.S. House approved the PRIDE (Promoting Respect for Individuals’ Dignity and Equality) Act by a voice vote, unanimously rubber-stamping what is tantamount to reparations for homosexual couples.

The PRIDE Act amends the federal tax code to remove gender-specific language such as “husband” and “wife” that may be offensive to those practicing the LGBT lifestyle. It also allows LGBT members to claim tax benefits that they were denied before the Defense of Marriage Act was unilaterally struck down by the robed lawyers on the Supreme Court in 2013.

The Joint Committee on Taxation estimates that this new LGBT give-away could cost the taxpayers as much as $67 million. The Democrats are patting themselves on the back for pushing another handout.

“In passing the PRIDE Act, Democrats are honoring our diversity and providing long-overdue justice to countless same-sex couples across the country who have been denied critical tax refunds because of who they are and who they love,” House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said.

Sen. Elizabeth ‘Pocahontas’ Warren (D-MA) is the lead sponsor for the Senate’s version of the PRIDE Act. This could be seen as an attempt on her part to buy votes as she campaigns for the Democratic Party’s nomination for the presidency in 2020.

“The federal government forced legally married same-sex couples in Massachusetts to file as individuals and pay more in taxes for almost a decade,” Warren said in a public statement. “We need to call out that discrimination and to make it right — Congress should pass the Refund Equality Act immediately.”

Fox News contributor Tammy Bruce noted in a column that the PRIDE Act opens the door to create more welfare schemes for the LGBT community. She called out Pocahontas in particular for her shameless pandering.

“What Ms. Warren doesn’t mention to people is the IRS already allows everyone to amend the last three years of returns,” wrote Bruce, who is a gay conservative herself.

“Instead, she wants couples to be able to amend their tax returns for the entire time they were married in one of the 10 states allowing gay marriage prior to federal recognition,” Bruce added.

Bruce gave an example of how the policy could be expanded in the future by Democrats who are always inventing new schemes to paper over their victim-group constituencies.

“But why stop there? What about all the gays and lesbians who never had a chance to marry at all because of the Clinton administration’s Defense of Marriage Act?” Bruce asked.

“That has to be asked because this has nothing to do with tax fairness and everything to do with reinforcing the politics of resentment and victimhood,” Bruce argued.

“For the Democratic Party machine, however, there can never be success, there always has to be a new appended wrong or violation, some new campaign to convince you that victimhood will never end, and you must always resent, well, everyone,” she added.

It is unlikely that the PRIDE Act will be passed, or even considered, by the Republican-led Senate.

Mad Maxine Says She Has Met Crips and Bloods ‘In The Hood’ with ‘More Integrity’ Than the President

She is off her rocker.

Published

on

Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) made the stunning claim recently that she has met gangbangers from the inner city with “more integrity” than President Donald Trump.

The Congresswoman, who has been ridiculed by the President for having a low IQ, made the comment while appearing on Showtime’s “Desus & Mero.”

“I have worked in some of the toughest communities,” she said in a clip that was tweeted by the hosts Thursday. “I’ve worked with gangs. I’ve worked with Crips, I’ve worked with Bloods. And there’s more integrity in many of these young people in the ‘hood than this man has.”

She also claimed without providing any evidence that the “street player” Mr. Trump has “flirted with gangsters” throughout his history as a businessman and politician.

“This country cannot tolerate another four years of him,” she said.

The clip of Waters running her mouth about Trump can be seen here:

Waters has angered the populists within her party by suggesting that the big money should have more control over deciding who is the Democrat Party presidential nominee.

“You would have two, three, four at a time in Beverly Hills having dinners,” she said last week. “Some of our contributors who are very rich were holding, you know, fancy parties, trying to accommodate the request for donations and contributions. And so, you know, the conclusion, the thinking is that if we are supplying tremendous dollars to candidates, we ought to have more say.”

“A lot of people have come to the conclusion that it should not simply be Iowa and New Hampshire and certainly they are not reflective of the makeup of this country,” she added.

Previously, Waters has demanded that President Trump be incarcerated and subjected to cruel and unusual punishment because of Ukraine-gate and other “nothing burger” fake scandals.

“I’m calling on the GOP to stop Trump’s filthy talk of whistleblowers being spies & using mob language implying they should be killed,” Waters wrote in a tweet last year. “Impeachment is not good enough for Trump. He needs to be imprisoned & placed in solitary confinement.”

“But for now, impeachment is the imperative,” she added.

From her words, it is clear that Waters has a delusional view of herself and her partisan crusade to destroy President Trump.

“Most people who have watched me over the past two years know that I am a responsible person who has talked about the Constitution, who has talked about the fact that this President does not respect the fact that (Russian President Vladimir) Putin is responsible for basically bugging our electoral system, hacking into the DNC. They know that I’ve been serious about this. I’ve had the courage to stand up when nobody else would stand with me,” Waters said.

Few lawmakers embody the excesses of the Washington D.C. swamp than Waters, who has lingered in Congress for almost three decades.
