For what crucial aide to help the coronavirus situation did Pelosi hold up financial relief to the people unemployed or not getting paid during the
coronavirus crises, and to help rescue the economy?
1. free Obamaphones
2. Same day voter registration
3. Mandatory carbon emissions reductions for airlines
4. Automatic extension of nonimmigrant VISA's
5. Pay off $10K of every student's debt
6. Force federal agencies to explain why their aren't more minority owned banks
7. Forbid colleges from reporting anyone's immigration status
8. $35 million to the JFK center for the performing arts
She could have introduced bills later for ALL of these things.
But no, let the people who do not have enough money to pay rent or buy food, as long as we get carbon emissions reduced. The
liberal/progressive/Democratic agenda at it's finest.
OR was it so that she could get revenge on Trump by holding up relief to the American people, the same "dirty little people" who voted for Trump in
mass, in the first place, the hard working lower middle class and middle/middle class? Another fantasy of the liberal/progressive/Democrats, stick
it to Trump and his evil voters. As long as they hurt we are happy.
OR was it a scheme to get crap passed? To make AOC and others happy. Go squad, get revenge on the little people who voted for Trump and get all your
other little pet projects/pork projects passed.
Here is a list of what Pelosi and the Democrats added from another source:
Go to this article for what was in the original bill - all relief. Below are the crucial lifesaving and average US citizen helping items the Democrats
had to hold up the bill to get it in.
I bet liberal/progressives/Democrats are thrilled to get these things through at the expense of those nasty little flyover Americans who voted for
Trump. We have a friend who lost his job, that we sent enough money to help pay his rent and not lose his apartment. He was just getting back on his
feet financially from a tragedy when this happened. AND NO, his landlord was not compassionate, nor would he wait. While Democrats withheld funds so
the JKF center for the performing arts could get millions. Pffffffttttt!
