Never let a good crisis go to waste

Never let a good crisis go to waste. Democrats have been doing their utmost to show partisanship during coronavirus. Instead of trying to help their fellow citizens, they see it better to throw in some irrelevant nice to haves which will do nothing to help Americans fight the economic impacts of coronavirus as bargaining chips.

Here are 20 examples.

  1. Corporate pay statistics by race and race statistics for all corporate boards at companies receiving assistance.
  2. Corporate board diversity targets
  3. Bailing out all current debt of postal service
  4. Required early voting
  5. Required same-day voter registration
  6. $10,000 bailout for student loans
  7. For companies accepting assistance, 1/3 of board members must be chosen by workers
  8. Provisions on official time for union collective bargaining
  9. Full offset of airline emissions by 2025
  10. Greenhouse gas statistics for individual flights
  11. Retirement plans for community newspaper employees
  12. $15 minimum wage at companies receiving assistance
  13. Permanent paid leave at companies receiving assistance
  14. hiding the citizenship status of College Students from the Census Bureau
  15. expanded wind & solar tax credits
  16. $100,000,000 for NASA’s environmental restoration group

While it is fair game to question the contents of a $1.8 trillion rescue package, none of the above will help Americans combat coronavirus. So the Dems have upped it to $2.5 trillion to include the above, including $1.5k in aid per individual; as much as $7.5k for a family of 5.

We suppose when the central bank has committed to endless QE, what does an extra $700bn on top of $1.8 trillion matter?

Life long Democrat voters brutally turn on Pelosi on C-Span talkback

Ouch. C-Span had a talk back segment after the 2020 SOTU speech. It is safe to say the majority of callers put love of country way before partisanship.

This is what so many mainstream media pundits are overlooking. It was the same as 2016. Don’t tell voters how great things are if they’re not experiencing it first hand. Now things are much better, trashing success doesn’t match their situation.

Suffice to say, many self-declared Democrats openly terminated their own affiliation to the party on air after Pelosi’s behavior at the SOTU.

Entertaining to hear that many Democrat voters were angry enough to call their own party nonsense out and express disgust that their elected officials won’t applaud American success.

Maybe Pelosi might reflect that Democratic voters aren’t leaving the party. The party is leaving them.
