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”.
Bloodthirsty Mexican Cartel Leaves Ominous Message for Border Patrol Agents in Texas
Border Patrol agents found a message from the Los Zetas Cartel at the end of June.
At the time, the agents were patrolling the area in response “to a large drug load crossing into the U.S.”, according to a report from Breitbart News.
The city in question, Rio Grande City, Texas, is located in Starr County which is on the border with Mexico. Breitbart News noted that this area is “under the control of the Gulf Cartel, due to the small cartel-controlled community of Camargo directly across the Rio Grande.”
Breitbart Texas has covered a turf war going down between Cartel Del Noreste (CDN)/Los Zetas and the Gulf Cartel over the last year. On June 9, 2020, a shooting kicked off between the two cartels near Comales, which is south of Rio Grande City and not too far away from it.
U.S. border agents were put on notice about cartel members attempting to escape into Texas at the time. Border agents discovered armored vehicles that demonstrated clear burn marks, likely the result of the use of explosives against them. Strangely, there were no bodies found near the scene.
The message that Los Zetas left behind on June 26 was intended to put border patrol on notice that this area was their new turf.
Mexico is clearly a failed state, with well-equipped cartels running around and making state security forces look foolish
U.S. needs to put emphasis on border security and restricting immigration if it wants to get a handle of this situation.
Too bad it’s focusing all of its time defending other countries’ borders.
