Pelosi Palooza: House $3 Trillion Relief Bill Loaded With Dem Political Goodies

“The 1,815-page piece of legislation is, once again, filled with ideological wishes that are unrelated to coronavirus relief” like amnesty, mandatory mail voting and banning voter i.d., stimulus payments to illegals, tax relief for wealthy blue-states, and more

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.

Henry Rodgers of the Daily Caller:

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.

Marisa Schultz of FOX News:

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:

Drop a house on her head.

This is unsustainable. REOPEN

You can always count on lefties to left.

Most of that stuff was written already, sitting around waiting to be considered; they would have just needed to possibly tweak a few words or sentences in each one before dropping it into the behemoth.

Plus, is Congress going to be trying to pass multi-trillion dollar legislation every month now for the foreseeable future? That in itself is unsustainable.

Seems like it would be a political gold mine of issues for any swing house districts. Money for illegals? Amnesty? Voter ID? House vote will put pressure on swing district D’s.

And how long before Mitch says it’s “dead on arrival”?

Also, I think it was intentionally written so as to be DOA in the Senate, and Dems will go out to the world to complain about the terrible, horrible uncaring, and unfeeling Republicans.

Trump needs to get ahead on this; the House is expected to vote on it on Friday morning and he should make absolutely clear if it somehow, some way got 60 votes for cloture in the Senate and ended up making it to his desk it would be getting the veto pen(s).

Trump should take bill and urinate on it, then send it back to Pelosi. Send her a message.

    I think you mean tear it in half.

    It is the DEMS that have the Golden Shower Fetish.

    The DEMs GOLDEN SHOWER FUNDING BILL.

As good an argument as any for a constitutional amendment allowing the line-item veto.

These multi-phonebook sized bills with 95% riders and 5% clauses actually relevant to the ostensible purpose of the bill are getting downright farcical.

I expect the democrats had very little to do with crafting this bill. This was crafted by Pelosi and her staff. She most likely had this stashed in her desk drawer. The doofus democrat that introduced and submitted the bill was probably picked from a had and told what to do.
There is, apparently, only a single House member now. Pelosi has taken everything away from everyone and holds all power to herself The other 434 House members are there in name only. The democrat members are all herded into a line and led to the sign-on table. The republican members have nothing to do but bluster and wave their hands.
There’s the President, the Senate with 100 members, and the House with only a single member, Pelosi.

Diversity requirements for marijuana dispensaries? Is that a fancy way of saying black people need funding to become better drug dealers? How the hell is that not offensive?

“How do you pay for it?”

“Tax the rich more.”

“Read it. You’re taxing the rich LESS. So, how do you pay for it?”

“Uhhh …”
.

“Is this about the virus, or the election?!?”

Whatever you think of Q, he/they/it asks some insightful questions.

I don’t really understand her hatred toward America.
She was allowed to steal millions from the taxpayers while living lavishly on our dime during junkets around the world.
She’s worth well north of 100 million dollars, yet she’s 80 years ugly. What can she possibly get from destroying the country that allowed her to live like a queen?
Her continual assholedness makes absolutely no sense.

    I think that for them the only better than gaining power is exercising it. Control freaks writ large.

OH Deplorable | May 13, 2020 at 10:14 pm

I like it better when she wears the mask. It covers part of her mug and it covers the dewlap she’s cultivating. Maybe with the mask pulled up some near sighted well meaning constable would mistake her for an armed robber, maybe.

These left-wing scumbags never quit.

And this ladies and gentlemen, is what leftists live for. Because they are devoid of any real ideology, no new political ideas, and by all best accounts, without a political future, they must commit fraud and practically TREASON to say to their constituents, “There, we produced for you. Now you must relect us.”

How nice it must be to be a sociopath without conscience or guilt.
