House Conservatives release plan on how they’ll fight leftist goody-stuffed $1.9T COVID bill
February 22, 2021 | Jon Dougherty


The House’s biggest conservative caucus has released a blueprint for opposing a Democrat-led $1.9 trillion COVID bill that contains money for liberal causes as well as big payouts to leftist states with large budget gaps that existed before the pandemic.

According to Fox News, a three-page memo to be distributed Monday by the Republican Study Committee to its conservative caucus details “all the left-wing items Democrats are hoping the public won’t found out about.”

The memo highlights several provisions in the COVID bill many Americans would find objectionable such as providing $1,400 stimulus checks to some families with illegal immigrants; giving Paycheck Protection Program funds to Planned Parenthood (which received more than $614 million in taxpayer funds in 2019); and almost $600 million in emergency paid family leave for U.S. Postal Service workers and other federal employees.

In addition, the memo casts light on a provision calling for race-based loan forgiveness and subsidies to farmers and ranchers; giving COVID-19 funds to universities that have ties and partnerships with Chinese government-controlled firms and Confucius Institutes; and $50 million slated for so-called ‘environmental justice programs” the study group railed as “a thinly-veiled kickback to leftist environmental groups.”

The study group also raises the issue of giving PPP funds to business owners who may have felony records to include “violent criminals” as well as providing Medicaid eligibility for inmates beginning 30 days ahead of their release.

The study commission’s leader, Rep. Jim Banks (R-Ind.), noted that taxpayers should be told what all the massive bill contains.

Good luck with that!

If you don't watch OAN, or Newsmax, and don't check sites like this you won't hear about the spending.

Simply put the democrats have a monetary gun to your head, swallow the poison pill legislation, or go on suffering.  This is how third world Countries operate.  Doncha worry, the EVIL TRUMP WAS DEFEATED, its all clear skys and smooth sailing from here on out, YOU WON!
Texans, Californians, and New Yorkers are finding out what living in the utopia of fools is all about, but don't worry democrats are willing to be-partisan the blame for democrats handiworks.  Didn't yah know, its a suffering/desolation utopia!
