Democrat lawmakers have been trying to push through a deceptive spending proposal marketed as a new relief bill that responds to the ongoing pandemic. The problem is that the bill also creates a blanket amnesty for almost every illegal alien and the businesses that have been employing them. House Democrats are expected to vote on the bill today.
Taking to Twitter, White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany responded to the “unserious” proposal:
.@SpeakerPelosi‘s bill – an unserious proposal written to appease her base – is overflowing with spending unrelated to the coronavirus➡️— Kayleigh McEnany (@PressSec) May 13, 2020
❌Bans sharing information about lower-cost health insurance choices such as association health plans or short-term limited duration plans
Among other inclusions in the proposal is the redesign of the original $1,200 stimulus payments—originally only available to American families—so that illegal immigrants and foreign nationals can receive them so long as they have a Tax Identification Number.
Related to this, the proposal comes with an intrusive restriction on state-run elections and bans voter ID requirements.
If that wasn’t enough, Democrats are also asking for federal funding for marijuana businesses which were not authorized to take out loans in the last relief package.
The bill, which Democrats will likely vote on today, will not be taken up by the Senate, effectively leaving it DOA. Speaker Pelosi claims that she is willing to negotiate, but her Republican counterparts are understandably skeptical about whether the two sides can find any middle ground after Democrats have started off on such a unserious position.
