Nancy Pelosi and Democrats are once again exploiting the Coronavirus crisis in an attempt to ram through spending they would never get passed otherwise.

Pelosi has been absent in Washington for weeks, but she somehow produced an 1,800 page bill with a price tag of $3 trillion dollars that reads like a progressive wish list.

Reagan McCarthy writes at Townhall:

Speaker Pelosi Proposes Another Partisan Relief Package

Speaker Pelosi unveiled Democrats’ proposed COVID-19 relief package on Tuesday, even as she refuses to allow the House to return to D.C. This version totals to an additional $3 trillion of relief.

The 1,815-page piece of legislation is, once again, filled with ideological wishes that are unrelated to coronavirus relief. Speaker Pelosi also allowed no GOP input in the crafting of this package that is virtually dead-on-arrival. Included in Speaker Pelosi’s bill are voting reforms, a repeal of the SALT cap, diversity incentives for marijuana businesses and other unrelated wish-list items.

You wouldn’t believe some of the items in this bill:

National Endowment for the Arts- $10 million for the National Endowment for the Arts for grants to support the general operations of recipients and language to permit the waiver of matching requirements.

National Endowment for the Humanities- $10 million for the National Endowment for the Humanities for grants to support the general operations of recipients and language to permit the waiver of matching requirements.

Sec. XX3. Temporary Protections for Essential Critical Infrastructure Workers. This section provides temporary protections to undocumented workers in the United States engaged in essential critical infrastructure work, as defined by DHS-issued guidance, during the COVID-19 emergency. Such workers are deemed to be in a period of deferred action and to be authorized for employment, and employers are shielded from certain immigration-related violations for employing such workers.

Section XX5. ICE Detention. This section requires DHS to review the immigration files of all individuals in the custody of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to assess the need for continued detention. Individuals who are not subject to mandatory detention shall be prioritized for release, either on recognizance or into an alternative to detention program, unless the individual is a threat to public safety or national security.

That barely scratches the surface. Here’s more:

How about money for the wealthy? Yup.

Pelosi Includes Massive Tax Break For The Rich In New $3 Trillion Coronavirus Relief Package

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and House Democrats introduced Tuesday the text to their $3 trillion coronavirus relief package, which includes a massive tax break for the rich.

According to reports and the text, the “Heroes Act” gives $100,000 on average to people who make more than $1 million a year. The House Democrats 1,815-page package repeals the $10,000 state and local tax deduction cap (SALT), which allows taxpayers in high-tax states to deduct local tax payments on federal tax returns.

A full repeal fo SALT would give tax refunds to an estimated 13 million American households — most of which earn at least $100,000 a year, according to the New York Times. It is estimated that a repeal of SALT would reduce federal revenues by around $77 billion a year, with those making over $1 million a year receiving about $40 billion, the NEw York Times reported.

Cash for undocumented immigrants? Check.

Democrats’ $3T coronavirus relief bill extends stimulus checks to certain undocumented immigrants

The Democrats’ new $3 trillion coronavirus relief legislation expands direct payment eligibility to many more people than last time, including undocumented immigrants who pay taxes.

Each eligible person would receive $1,200 stimulus checks, up to $6,000 per household, according to the newly released legislation.

For example, a married couple filing taxes jointly would receive $2,400. They would get an additional $1,200 for each of their dependents, up to three, for a maximum benefit of $6,000.

Under the first round of checks, eligible individuals got a one-time payment of up to $1,200, or $2,400 per couple, plus $500 for each child up to age 16.

And on, and on:
