This morning Mitt Romney, the former GOP Nominee for President, Governor of Massachusetts, and current U.S. Senator from Utah laid out his plan to help working American families during the current Wuhan Virus outbreak.
The cornerstone of his plan includes giving every adult American citizen and taxpaying resident $1000 as a way to meet their short term obligations. It also proposes grants to small businesses in need, expanding student aid and deferring college loans for recent graduates affected by outbreak.
In a statement released his office Senator Romney remarked, “The House coronavirus response package contains critical measures to help families in Utah and across the nation in the midst of the coronavirus outbreak, and the Senate should act swiftly on this legislation, We also urgently need to build on this legislation with additional action to help families and small businesses meet their short-term financial obligations, ease the financial burden on students entering the workforce, and protect health workers on the front lines and their patients by improving telehealth services. I will be pushing these measures as Senate discussions continue about an additional relief package.”
Concerning the $1000 direct payment the Senator’s statement goes on to say, “Every American adult should immediately receive $1,000 to help ensure families and workers can meet their short-term obligations and increase spending in the economy. Congress took similar action during the 2001 and 2008 recessions. While expansions of paid leave, unemployment insurance, and SNAP benefits are crucial, the check will help fill the gaps for Americans that may not quickly navigate different government options.”
Last week the Congresswoman from Hawaii and Democrat Candidate for President Tulsi Gabbard introduced legislation in the House of Representatives that would give every American age eighteen and over $1000 per month until the end of the of the current national emergency is ended by the Secretary of Health and Human Services.
It would appear that both the plan of Senator Romney and Congresswoman Gabbard are based in the political philosophy of entrepreneur and former Democrat candidate for President Andrew Yang who made the idea of Universal Basic Income the bedrock of his campaign.
Asked on Monday by a reporter whether the White House would support direct cash legislation as a way to help American families, President Trump’s National Economic Council Director Larry Kudlow answered “we might”.
Weak Senator Mitt Romney Attacks GOP’s Investigation On Sleepy Joe’s Corruption
On September 16, 2020, Utah Senator Mitt Romney criticized his fellow Republicans in the Senate Homeland Security Committee for their investigation into Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden and his son’s business dealings in Ukraine.
Romney declared that this investigation had the “earmarks of a political exercise.”
Wisconsin Senator Ron Johnson, the leader of this investigation, said to reporters on September 14 that “in about a week we’re going to learn a whole lot more of Vice President Biden’s unfitness for office.” The committee is in the process of investigating Hunter Biden’s work for Ukrainian gas company Burisma during a time when Joe Biden was the head of Obama administration’s Ukraine policy.
Romney specifically stated at a hearing on September 16 that the investigation “from the outset had the earmarks of a political exercise. I’m fearful that comments made in the media recently have only confirmed that perspective.”
The Utah Senator declared “It’s not the legitimate role of government, for Congress or for taxpayer expense, to be used in an effort to damage political opponents.” He added, “I do believe it’s very important that the committees of Congress, and ours in particular, not fall into an increasing pattern that we’re seeing, which is using taxpayer dollars and the power of Congress to do political work. That’s the role of campaigns.”
Earlier in March of this year, Romney said that the investigation “appears” to be politically motivated. However, a spokesperson for the senator said that he ended up changing his mind the following day after receiving a promise from Johnson that the probe would be conducted behind closed doors.
Romney yet again shows his true colors as a Republican with no spine. In a previous report, BLP exposed Romney for calling out Trump and asserting that he is stoking racial animosity. Romney’s politically correct comments show how low he will stoop to in trying to seek approval from the political establishment. It’s no surprise why he voted to impeach Trump earlier this year.
Serious conservatives should do everything possible to boot Romney out of the party.
