House Speaker Nancy Pelosi introduced her own emergency coronavirus stimulus bill on Monday, leading furious Republicans to argue that much of the proposal contained a progressive wishlist seemingly unrelated to the crisis — including several provisions that amount to a resurrection of the notorious “Obamaphone” program, GOP officials said.
The bill proposed by Pelosi, D-Calif., additionally seeks to eliminate debt held by the U.S. Postal Service, require same-day voter registration, pay off $10,000 in student debt per person, mandate that airlines reduce their overall carbon emissions by 50 percent by 2050, and force federal agencies to explain to Congress how they are increasing their usage of “minority banks,” Fox News reports.
Instead of focusing on helping the United States and “WE THE PEOPLE” the Democrats have unleashed their greed and are doing everything they can to push their agendas into the emergency funds bill.
Townhall put together a list of some of the BS the dems are demanding:
-Publication of corporate pay statistics by race and race statistics for all corporate boards
-A bail out on all current debt at the Postal Service
-Required early voting
-Required same day voter registration
-Provisions on official time for union collective bargaining
-Full offset of airline emissions by 2025
-Publication and reporting of greenhouse gas statistics for individual flights
-Retirement plans for community newspaper employees
-Federal $15 minimum wage
-Permanent paid leave
-Study on climate change mitigation efforts
The provisions will apply to the companies and business rescued by the bill.
And Breitbart reported Democrats are also demanding payment for up to $10,000 in student loans to borrowers, expanding wind and solar tax credits, funds for Planned Parenthood, extension of nonimmigrant visas and provisions that would prevent colleges and universities from reporting the immigration status of any individual to the federal government.
It would provide for the automatic extension of non-immigrant visas and restrict colleges from providing information about citizenship status. It would also allocate $35 million to the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts.
$1 billion “to build on program expanded by President Obama that provides discounted phone service for low-income consumers.
These are just some of the unrelated demands Senate Democrats have used to slow relief for workers and families:
✖️ Tax credits for solar and wind energy
✖️ Special treatment for Big Labor
✖️ Airlines' emissions standards
This is a crisis. Why is only one side acting like it? pic.twitter.com/MRfnXT1HJ2

While Pelosi and the Democrats are pushing their greed, Americans are dieing and suffering, now someone explain to me how she has not been arrested and charged? Our President needs to put an immediate halt to the Democrats greed and put the focus on saving lives.
