I am appalled at the items put in what was supposed to be relief for the people due to the coronavirus bill.

It was held up for days while people added in pork. Now they are looking at a new bigger more pork filled bill that has nothing at all to do with virus relief.

First the major corporations and small businesses who got relief: Sure they hire millions upon millions of US citizens, sure if they go under millions upon millions will lose their jobs, who cares. Why give them loans that the bill says must be paid back to the treasury. This is corporate welfare to save these corporations who employ millions upon millions of US citizens. This is not at all about the peons who work, it is about the major corporations getting "corporate welfare". To heck with the fact they are obligated to pay it back. Who gives a care that the salaries of CEO's and top management are capped while repaying the money to the treasury. What on earth does the US government need their stock for which is also part of the PAYBACK on the corporate LOANS. The millions upon millions of average american middle class workers and the little people who need the jobs, who gives a rip, this is corporate welfare, isn't it? This benefits the Republicans, doesn't it?

Next what was put in the bill to appease big campaign donors and to save a congresspersons job through pork:
same day voter registration mandatory throughout the US (a recipe for massive election fraud because no one can be checked for legitimacy)
millions for the Smithsonian
a water project in Utah
a sunscreen review at the FDA
and other pork projects that have nothing to do with coronavirus relief added to the bill by 80 year old little old white lady Nancy Pelosi on behalf of mostly old white men in the Democratic Party

I have been reading that the next coronavirus relief bill that 80 year old little old white lady Pelosi and mostly a bunch of old white male Congresspersons are putting together might contain even more deceit by pretending it is coronavirus relief (see list below):

Expansive new tax credits for solar and wind energy
New emissions standards for airlines and requirement of full offset by 2025
Increased collective bargaining for Big Labor
Retirement plans paid for by the government, for community newspaper employees
Publication of corporate pay statistics by race and race statistics for all corporate boards
$1Billion “Cash For Clunkers”-style program where government buys planes from airlines
$1.5M to study climate change mitigation efforts in civil aviation and aerospace industries
New stricter OSHA requirements on hospitals
$1Billion for free Obamaphones
Mandatory carbon emissions reductions for airlines
Automatic extension of non-immigrant VISA's
Pay off $10K of every student's debt in the country
Force federal agencies to explain why their aren't more minority owned banks
Forbid colleges from reporting anyone's immigration status

If these are put in a bill that is supposed to be for coronavirus relief then the people who put them in deceived/lied/braisonly lied to the American people.

The ones who put these items in and threatened no relief for the average american, or worker or health facility unless they could put these in are basically engaging in extortion and should be put on trial.

The mostly old white men and women who extort the American people this way must be held accountable and tried in an extortion mass trial the likes of which the US has never seen.

OR be removed by their fellow congresspersons who were held hostage to the extortion.


Feel free to spread this sentiment all over social media, as far and wide as you can make it public.


It has been done to us once, fool us once shame on you, fool us twice shame on us - don't let it be shame on us anymore - stand up and shout it to the rooftops of DC - no more extortion to enrich you or your cronies or to get you reelected!!!!!!

Reps and Senators can't be impeached. They can only be removed by their fellow house members. I wish that were an available option for the People, but from my understanding it's not.

I know, the Democrats did.

The corporation stuff DID benefit directly the "little people", the peons who by the millions might lose their jobs if the corporations go under.

But to be fair, I had to put in what the liberals were screaming about or they would not read the rest.

Thanks, I have time to change the title and OP to change it to a criminal extortion trial. Appreciate the correction!

I was told by many people on this site that the virus is so bad we shouldn’t demand government answer basic questions

Whatever the government does to fight this virus must be justified says these people

They ridiculed people like me who warned this would be exploited

So predictably this is the result

Oh and it’s just the beginning. The amount of power the government will consolidate and money they will steal will be staggering by the end of this

But we must be good little sheep and question none of it, else lives will be jeopardized!

The President and Congress can never be wrong, we need this socialism to help us get through these dark days that the government created.

My guess those that are behind this will be "do as I say, not as I do". So their demise will be their own greed. I understand it takes someone about 2 weeks after admitted in "serious " condition to be on their way out to the ...

But, but, racism is the currency of politics, especially if one is a Democrat.

Liberals insist that race be mentioned and thought about before anything else.

Just engaging in liberal currency to get your attention and get you to read what I wrote.

Glad it got your attention! Glad it made you angry!
That was the entire point!

Oh you are so right!

Look at where the deeply socialist/communist countries have dealt with this. China in particular, they handled it perfectly according to their media.

We all know that socialism requires totalitarianism to function, which means a small cabal that controls the media where everything they do is rosy and bright and never wrong.

I bow to your wisdom.

$ 25,000,000 to the JFK performing arts center.
Know how many small businesses that may have saved ?
Performing Arts = Liberals that cannot make it in the real world.

What ya think most of that money will make its way to the Democrats' campaign funds ?

And no he did not put the pure pork in the bill.

The American people are so used to being screwed it's an expected part of American life as we know it. The only question at this point is to what degree, and do we get a reach around?

Line item veto ? It should contain nothing not related to citizens relief, medical solely.

The President doesn't have a line-item veto. Congress would have to give it to him.

They're not gonna give the President the power to block the pork for their cronies.

Trump should have said the Kennedy Center does not need funding because Congress is the best national performing arts center worldwide. They constantly sell out Americans.

Here's an idea!

Allow government to control the means of production so we'll have enough masks!
