SHAME: Democrats Are Blocking Stimulus Legislation That Includes Second $1,200 TrumpBux Check

Published

on

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.

$1.9 Trillion Stimulus Package Passes the House With $15 Minimum Wage

The bill includes $1,400 stimulus checks.

Published

on

The House of Representatives passed President Joe Biden’s $1.9 trillion dollar stimulus package in a near party-line vote on Friday night. Two Democrats deflected, declining to vote for the bill.

The bill includes a provision to raise the federal minimum wage to $15 an hour. This provision is likely to be removed in the Senate, with the Senate parliamentarian ruling that a spending and appropriations package can’t include a minimum wage increase.

Republican critics of the bill have alleged that the legislation is weighted towards ‘pork’ spending, with hundreds of billions delegated in the spending package that have little to do with the coronavirus. Senators such as Mitt Romney have pointed out that the bill provides billions in funding to state governments such as California, which incurred a budgetary surplus in 2020. Critics have alleged that a third stimulus package should be more directly targeted, with the federal government incurring the largest budget deficit in the history of the United States in 2020.

The package’s main provision is a round of $1,400 stimulus checks for all taxpayers who filed less than $75,000 in their 2019 tax return.

Senate Democrats are determined to pass the large stimulus package using budget reconciliation, a process that would only require 50 votes to pass. Biden’s voter base have become increasingly impatient, with the Democrat having previously promised that stimulus checks would be issued immediately after his ascension to the presidential throne.

If left-wing pork projects prevent Biden from delivering on his game-changing campaign promise of stimulus checks, his presidency will be exposed as little more than a false bill of goods sold by the feckless establishment since the beginning.
