Trump Tweets Support for the Wuhan Coronavirus Relief Package

Trump Tweets Support for the Wuhan Coronavirus Relief Package

“I encourage all Republicans and Democrats to come together and VOTE YES!”

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and President Donald Trump’s administration are close to an agreement on a coronavirus relief package.

The vote in the House should happen tonight, but some House Republicans may not jump on board. It’s possible pork is still shoved in the bill.

Turns out paid sick leave caused the delay.

Here are a few details of the bill:

  • Free coronavirus testing for everyone who needs a test, including the uninsured.
  • Two weeks of guaranteed paid sick leave, as well as increased family leave.
  • Increased support for unemployment benefits.
  • Works to strengthen programs that provide school lunches for students who rely on them.
  • A bump in Medicaid funding.

BUT since politicians have a pork addition, the bill may run into problems because who wouldn’t vote for a bill to help the sick? Well, it makes me sick they do this. Like supposed Catholic Pelosi.

Pelosi came under fire because she tried to sneak in federally funded infanticide:

“While schools are closing and hospitals are gearing up, Speaker Pelosi is waging unnecessary culture wars. Speaker Pelosi should be fighting the coronavirus pandemic, not politicizing emergency funding by fighting against the bipartisan Hyde Amendment,” Sasse told National Review in a statement. “We need to be ramping up our diagnostic testing, not waging culture wars at the behest of Planned Parenthood. Good grief.”

Pelosi attempted to secure a funding stream of up to $1 billion for reimbursing laboratory claims. According to White House officials who spoke with the Daily Caller, that provision would establish a precedent under which health claims for all procedures, including abortion, could be reimbursed with federal funds. That precedent would render the Hyde Amendment, which blocks taxpayer funding for abortion clinics, obsolete.

However, Trump tweeted in support of the bill.

Nancy pelosi is a virus personified.

What a corrupt, sick POS.

Tapping into the “wealth” of small business owners to pay for paid leave for employees. Creating a workers’ paradise .. if there are businesses left to hire them. Is there relief for the businesses?

    The relief is in the form of tax credits next year. So in other words, for most small businesses, it’s worthless. Many businesses are going to lose enough this year not to owe next year so tax credits are meaningless.

Nancy Pelosi has become far more deplorable than Harry Reed. She now makes Hilary Clinton look like a good person. I would have thought that impossible.

    She’s been evil for decades. You’re just now noticing?

    “The Constitution? Are you kidding? Are you kidding?”

    And with that, many Americans died, because medical care and insurance didn’t work for them after she passed KenyanCare.

Huh? Why? Why isn’t this done for the ‘regular’ flu which kills over 10,000 people EVEY YEAR in the USA??

STOP THE HYSTERIA!

The panic over this is beyond belief.

It doesn’t make sense given all we know about this virus, the numbers don’t support the insane push and the frenzied sell off of stocks, frenzied buying of food items, and the closing down of so many businesses and sports seasons.

This just means either we are being lied to about this, which wouldn’t shock me, it could be a bio-weapon from China meant to destroy the US economy, in a scorched earth type way, and it is far worse than is being said. Or this is another Y2K type deal, where OMG!!! the world will end, then after the panic and fear they say oh, well, never mind.

I get why Trump has to act in a firm way.

Why is it though every even year we see some major flu or virus going around, like clock work, in election years.

I don’t wish to see people suffer and become ill but this is just insane what we are seeing from this. Is it only media and the left driving this? If so, why is President Trump so on board with it all too? Is it just a cover politically for Trump? That seems like something that could backfire if this turns into a nothing burger.

    Ah so, but a COUP behind all this does make sense……….

    RE: “Why is it though every even year we see some major flu or virus going around, like clock work, in election years.”

    That is the pattern that many others are pointing out – in Elections Years. Could be chalked up to “suppressing” the mature, conservative voters no?

    Remember most of these entities closing, postponing, etc., are headed by lefties.

    They get to crash the economy, just like Bill Maher wanted….

    The regular flu won’t diselect Trump.

    It’s Y2K with an end goal in mind.

    Why is Trump going along, so to speak? Very simple. He can tweet, but even his tweeting is no match for the 24/7 news cycle. With the press completely against him, only if he acts can he prevent himself from being smeared by the press.

    He’s being realistic about the stakes.

    It’s been proven almost unlimited times now that the DEMS and their Media (just like the Communist Chinese Government) are non-stop Liar.

    Figures do not Lie, but Liars Figure.

    My bipartisan theory: Both establishment wings of each party are in cahoots to very carefully protect the elderly voting blocs. The GOP needs it in the general and the Dems need it in the primary to fend off the Bern.

    Even if the elderly didn’t die in large numbers, they might get disenfranchised if the response were not enough to allay their concerns. Thus, you see the overcompensated response.

There is nothing in the world so bad as bipartisan legislation…

too bad they never included free testing in obamacare when they had a chance and we wouldn’t be in this position now

Looks like we’re back into the old, you have to pass the bill before you read the bill ground again

Two weeks of guaranteed paid sick leave, as well as increased family leave.

I see no mention about who is paying these. That little detail would make the difference between an adequate bill and a disastrous one.

    Sanddog in reply to tom_swift. | March 14, 2020 at 1:48 am

    Businesses are paying for it. For small and medium businesses, they’ll allow for a tax credit… next year. This is going to be disastrous.

12 weeks of quarantine pay? Nobody has spent 12 weeks in quarantine.
