Democrat leaders are continuing their hysteria after the June jobs report once again showed record-breaking numbers.
“With slow wage growth, rising health care premiums, and skyrocketing gas prices across the country, Donald Trump’s reckless policies are hurting millions of hardworking families,” said DNC Chair and former Secretary of Labor Tom Perez.
According to the Labor Department’s Bureau of Labor Statistics, 213,000 jobs were added in June. Overall, 155,576,000 people are now employed, which is the tenth record set by the Trump administration in that category. More than 27,000,000 Hispanics were employed in June, and the group’s 4.6% unemployment rate was the lowest it has ever been.
All of this, according to Democrats, is “reckless.” Of course, they call it reckless because if Americans do not have to rely on the government to survive, then the Democrats have no worth or value as a party. This explains Perez’s panicked tone.
“This is all part of the Republican playbook,” he said. “For decades, Republicans and their wealthy corporate allies have been chipping away at workers’ rights, weakening unions, and depressing wages – all while giving massive tax cuts to the top 1%.”
According to the same BLS statistics, wages have actually increased 2.7%, or 72 cents per hour over the course of this year. Perez must have missed that statistic. It also stands to reason that the “top 1%” will indeed receive the bulk of the tax cuts, considering that they pay a bulk of the taxes. It is a simple mathematical truism, and yet another mind-numbingly stupid leftist talking point.
It looks like the Democrats have their playbook in order, too.
#JobsReport shows what is at stake from the brewing storm of rising health costs, spiraling trade uncertainty & an economy being hollowed out to enrich big corporations & the wealthiest 1 percent,” tweeted House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA). “Americans deserve better than the GOP’s raw deal.”

By the “top 1 percent,” Pelosi was talking about herself. She has a net worth of $26.4 million on a $175,000 annual salary. She has been a member of the House for many years, but not enough years to amass that much wealth. Where did all her wealth come from?
As usual, coastal elite Democrats have forgotten about middle America. They cannot relate, and do not care to relate, to any of the 266,000 people who will now have a steady paycheck thanks to the emphasis that Trump has placed on jobs during his Presidency.
SHAME: Democrats Are Blocking Stimulus Legislation That Includes Second $1,200 TrumpBux Check
Democrats in Congress are blocking a bipartisan $1.5 trillion stimulus package that includes a second round of $1,200 TrumpBux payments to Americans.
Leading House Democrats are saying the bill isn’t big enough of a giveaway, but they favor stimulus measures that would divert funds away from the pockets of everyday Americans to institutions. They want to bail out Democrat state and local governments, and are willing to block TrumpBux payments to Americans if they aren’t allowed to.
The House passed a $3.4 trillion stimulus package in May that was shot down by Senate Republicans. The latest $1.4 stimulus legislation has been presented as a compromise, after House Democrats in turn rejected a thin $500 billion stimulus package proposed by Republicans last week. That package did not include a second round of $1,200 payments, and Republicans are now willing to sign off on another TrumpBux payment in order to pass another round of stimulus.
The $1.5 trillion stimulus legislation emerged from the Problem Solvers Caucus, a group of 25 Republicans and 25 Democrats who emphasize bipartisanship and common ground. Aside from TrumpBux 2, it features $500 billion for cities and states, unemployment insurance of $600 a week, increased SNAP benefits and rental assistance.
Steny Hoyer and Nancy Pelosi are claiming the legislation doesn’t go far enough and that it “leaves too many needs unmet.”
Pelosi and House Democrats are insisting that Congress will remain in session until a second stimulus agreement is met, but in rejecting the Problem Solvers Caucus legislation they’re already shown they’re not open to a generous compromise.
Try asking everyday working Americans of all stripes and walks of life if they’re willing to wait or even go without a second $1,200 stimulus payment in order to provide a bigger bailout to states and cities that already engage in questionable budgetary practices to begin with. The Democrats are resolutely determined to avoid making people the priority in a stimulus package, and will block stimulus legislation to do so.
