“Let Them Eat Cake”
I’m sure all of you have seen the social media hashtags, which liken Nancy Pelosi to Marie Antoinette. Pelosi withheld Stimulus Relief efforts for MONTHS, while Americans suffered.
She called a stimulus bill backed by President Trump “crumbs” a stimulus bill that was twice as large as the one her and the Democrats just signed off on.
While she ate $25 Ice Cream and received a 6 figure salary (paid for by YOU & ME), to sit around and argue whether or not we could get back $600 of OUR OWN MONEY.
But that’s not all folks!
She is also backing a bill which would give BILLIONS in aid to foreign countries, including $10 Million in aid for “Gender Education Programs.”
I don’t know about you, but I don’t give a damn about Sri Lanka, or Pakistan…..I give a damn about Leesville, Knoxville, Raleigh….just to name a few.
Aside from the fact that she is giving foreign countries our money, while we suffer, why the hell are millions of dollars going to “gender education programs’?
President Trump, never one to B.S. called it out immediately: “This Bill Is A Disgrace” he says, and he plans to shoot down this sham of a bill if the checks arent raised to $2,000.
Check it out:
National File had more on the story:
President Donald Trump took a bold stand in support of the American people Tuesday evening, stating that Congress’ bloated bipartisan bill that would send billions to foreign countries and just $600 to American families is a “disgrace,” and that he will veto the bill if stimulus payments are not increased to $2,000.
“Congress started negotiations on a new package to get urgently needed help to the American people. It’s taken forever. However, the bill they are now planning to send back to my desk is much different than anticipated,” Trump noted in a video message released on social media. “It really is a disgrace.”
President Trump railed against the bloated provisions in the government funding section of the bill that would send billions to nations that do not improve the lives of the American people, such as Sudan, Cambodia, and Israel; as well as funding for “diversity and inclusion” programs, Senate building furniture, and the Kennedy Center.
The Hill had some harsh and true words for the most recent stimulus bill:
The $900 billion stimulus package COVID-19 "relief" bill is exactly what one would expect from a dysfunctional, tone-deaf Congress: a pork-filled cluster filled with anything and everything that has nothing to do with the coronavirus pandemic or relief.
And in the swampiest thing ever, the bill, which is combined with a $1.4 trillion omnibus spending bill, is 5,593 pages long, or 5,583 pages too many, was given to lawmakers six hours before a vote to review what exactly is in it (hint: more pork than a Tyson Foods plant).
It harkens back to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) once explaining that a bill needed to be passed in order to find out what was in it. In a related story, our government is broken.
