COVID-19 Package More About Wish-List than Pandemic

Thu, February 25, 2021 9:47 AM | Anonymous member (Administrator)

In an example of the dictum: “never let a crisis go to waste” the Democrat majority in the House of Representatives have passed and sent to the Senate an enormous $1.9 Trillion dollar package filled with longstanding left items that have little or nothing to do with direct aid or support for needs resulting from the pandemic or ensuing shutdowns. Much of the spending is not even going to be expended in 2021, notwithstanding the fact it is being passed under the moniker of “emergency relief.”  These details, including an increase in the minimum wage to $15/hour, has run into trouble in the evenly divided Senate.  (SEE, National Journal tables explaining key elements of the package).
