DEMOCRATS TORPEDO CORONAVIRUS RELIEF BILL OVER RADICAL DEMANDS

Democrats, led by Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer, hold direct relief to American workers hostage over their socialist wish list:

  • While hospitals are overwhelmed and Americans are staying home from work, Democrats are holding the Phase III coronavirus relief bill hostage to push their failed liberal policies.
  • Democrats introduced new language at the eleventh hour, using this health crisis to implement socialist policies like:
    • $300 million in funding for public broadcasting;
    • Expansive new tax credits for solar and wind energy;
    • New emissions standards for airlines and a requirement of full carbon offset by 2025;
    • Required same-day voter registration and early voting;
    • Bailouts for the U.S. Postal Service, the union pension fund, and student loans;
    • Retirement plans for community newspaper employees;
    • Publication of corporate pay statistics by race, and race statistics for all corporate boards;
    • $1 billion “Cash for Clunkers”-style program where the government buys planes from airlines;
    • $1.5 million to study climate change mitigation efforts in civil aviation and aerospace industries;
    • New and burdensome OSHA requirements on hospitals; and,
    • $1 billion to build on a program expanded by Barack Obama that provides discounted phone service for low-income consumers.
  • Democrats only care about this crisis because they can use it to force their big-government ideology—this is no time to play politics while Americans are suffering.
