Elections have consequences. This is what the voters wanted.

The election was rigged. We may not have proof that would stand up in court of an actual stealing of the election though data strongly suggests this but it was blatantly RIGGED in favor of Biden. Huge thumb on the scale. So any other election I would agree with you, voters got what they deserve but this election I'm not sure it was really up to the voters.
Whatever it was, millions voted for this. Such is life. Elections have consequences. We are seeing them live and in living color. Voters need to wake up. Complaining after the fact is useless.

A $15 hourly minimum wage:
Biden is calling on Congress to raise the minimum wage to $15 an hour, and to end the tipped minimum wage and the sub-minimum wage for people with disabilities.
And that cures Covid how?

I'll agree with that. I have my wealth protected out of reach of scum Democrats and live in the country far from their inner city shitholes so I'm living the good life while they suffer the consequences of putting stupid shit Dems in charge. I'm back to every man for himself.

WTF does an underground railroad have to do with the China Flu?

JOBS stupid
It should be in an infrastructure bill then. Trying to play it off as China Flu related is a joke.

God you are dumb, what part of the money will be used to fund the under funded public employee pension/retirement benefits didn't you understand?
No idea. That's your claim.

It WILL go keeping Cops and firefighters employed.

The Govt still has the vast majority of the last 'Rekief bill' passed - have not spent it.

The newest $1.9 Trillion is another MASSIVE Leftist Wish List and Rewarding of Leftist Extremists, and it has little to do it with COVID-19 Relief / helping the American people. Its a repeat of Obama's / the Dem's non-stimulatoing 'Stimlus bill, the 1xt Bill barry signed into law, Deficit Be-Damned.

The CBO has declared the economywill begin growing again in April and this money is nt even needed....and as expected, Democrats are ignoring both the science and the math ro push through their massive porkulous monester spending bill.

WTF does this have to do with the China Flu?

Biden racks up $2 Trillion in debt in under a month.


Left’s Social Justice Agenda

• Provides $50 million in funding for EPA environmental justice grants, a thinly-veiled kickback to leftist environmental groups.
• Extends PPP funds to violent criminals, including those guilty of assault on a police officer and nonconsensual sexual crimes.
• Expands Medicaid eligibility, for five years, to incarcerated individuals 30 days prior to their release.
• Prioritizes funding based on identity politics while ignoring rural businesses and communities.
• Gives billions in subsidies and loan forgiveness worth 120% of debt to farmers and ranchers on the basis of race and ethnicity.
• Gives $800 million in additional foreign food aid.

Liberal Welfare Wishlist

• Incentivizes harmful Medicaid expansion by increasing newly expanded state’s base FMAP by five percentage points for two years. Not only does this hurt state budgets, it also brings our nation one step closer to a complete federal takeover of our health care sector.
• Increase the size of Obamacare premium tax credits for existing beneficiaries.
• Effectively place an excise tax on everyday Americans’ pharmaceutical purchases by removing the Medicaid AMP rebate cap, which could create instances where drug manufacturers are paying Medicaid to supply drugs.
• Expands Medicaid eligibility, for five years, to incarcerated individuals 30 days prior to their release and to women for 12 months postpartum, an unrelated provision that should be considered on its own merits.
• Provides additional subsidies for LIHEAP ($4.5 billion), a program ripe with fraud, waste, and abuse, that President Trump even sought to eliminate.
• Extends 15 percent increase in SNAP funding through the rest of FY 2021.
• Provides nearly $600 million for additional paid leave for federal employees and postal workers.
• Would increase the Child Tax Credit (CTC) by $1,000 per child over 5 and $1,600 per child under 6. For 2021, the credit would be fully refundable. Would double the maximum EITC benefit to workers with no dependents.
• Would increase, by 20%, the maximum amount of federally subsidized wages for paid leave. Would allow self-employed people to claim up to 60 days annually worth of federally subsidized paid leave. • Removes state matching requirement for the Child Care Entitlement to States (CCES) grant program, along with an almost 20% increase in funding for this program.
• Would, effectively, implement the Democratic Butch Lewis taxpayer bailout of pensions plan.

Was the stimulus bills a waste of money that Trump signed into law?

Yes. Same shit, different Prez.

This is about how Congress operates, not the President (other than that fact that a president with balls would veto this shit and make them do it right).
