House Democrats early Friday morning voted down an amendment to the latest COVID relief package. Congresswoman Ashley Hinson (R-IA) proposed diverting the $140 million earmarked for a subway project in Speaker Nancy Pelosi's (D-CA) district to mental health programs for children struggling with school lockdowns. The amendment failed 218 to 205.

"Americans are crying out for targeted relief and, instead, this bill sends more money to Speaker Pelosi's pet project in California, the Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) Silicon Valley Phase II. How insulting to the frontline workers who still have not received a COVID-19 vaccine, to the mom trying to pay rent while her small business is in danger," Hinson said from the House floor. "And what about the ER docs and nurses treating kids rushed in for mental health crisis? This is Washington pork spending at its worst, the kind the speaker puts in for herself."

Hinson cited the staggering number of students who are facing mental health crises because they are forced to attend school virtually.

According to the Centers for Disease Control, health care providers saw an uptick in mental health emergencies among kids between Mar. 2020 and Oct. 2020. Mental health emergencies increased to 24 percent for kids ages five to 11 and 31 percent for kids between the ages of 12 and 17.

"We've seen increasing rates of depression, anxiety, and other mental health challenges among our kids who have been trapped behind screens for a year now," she said.

Democrats should be ashamed of themselves for putting a subway before America's youth. California has struggled with its train boondoggle for years. The Democratic Party in California was so focused on "being green" and being the leader in combating climate change that Pelosi is willing to use her leadership position to get this kind of ridiculous funding for her area.

Congresswoman Hinson is right. This is the definition of pork spending at its worst. It's the epitome of why average Americans hate politicians. Instead of focusing on a clean relief bill, there are all kinds of garbage carved out for special interests and individual districts. But it's disgusting when politicians put a transportation project over American lives, especially the lives of our youth.



With the Dems, it's always politics first and people last. Out of $1.9 Trillion, are you telling me they couldn't find a measly $140 billion somewhere? But NOOOO, we gotta appease the greenies cuz they give us money to get re-elected. Them kids, not so much.

Oh, I see it now. It was a Repub that offered the amendment. Can't have that.

I love having things back to normal. A Democrat in the White House, and the right bitching about things that they haven't cared about the past 4 years when they had the Senate and Executive.

Literally a "Fuck your feelings" provision put in by a clown Republican for a quick media soundbyte about how Democrats don't care.

First the Dems lock kids up in the cages that Obama built, now they want them to go crazy.

Why do Democrats hate children? It seems like they're either molesting them, abusing them, or running off and leaving the mother to raise them.

Did Democrats have a bad childhood or something?

They need the BART system built so those fags can bus those kids in and molest them.

It is San Francisco, you know.

SF already has BART. This is just an extension south on the peninusula to service all the techies. Fuck them, let Google, HP, FB and the rest pay for it. It is payola for all the censorship the techies provided the democrats.

It should be crystal clear by now, the Dems priorities in this instance are: climate change, politics, and people dead last. Hard to say in which order the 1st 2 are, and what else they squeeze in there ahead of their concern for American citizens, but absolutely nothing can be more obvious than their lack of caring about their own constituents and the rest of us.

That's a no brainer. It's so much easier to molest children who are suffering from mental and emotional problems.

The only thing the marxist Dim shitstains are good at is kiddie porn.... hmm?

Democrats Reject GOP Stimulus Amendment To Move $100M+ From Silicon Valley Subway To Children’s Mental Health This just disgusts me Kids are killing themselves at a all time rate due to this pandemic and dems say no to something that was supposed to be for covid. First Pelosi tells healthcare workers who they all praised at the beginning they are not getting anything extra because SHE let them to continue to work. Pelosi and everyone in washington is supposed to work FOR us. Nope they work for themselves with OUR MONEY.
