The House passed a massive blue state bailout today that was disguised as a covid relief bill. Taxpayers should be outraged at this bailout and the huge expansion of government.
Senator Joni Ernst ripped into Democrats and the Biden administration for promoting their liberal wish list “over the hopes of the American people.”
The covid relief makes up only 9% of the bill passed today in the House by 220-211. Senator Ernst calls out Nancy Pelosi and other Democrats for the non-covid items in the bill. The blue state bailout of New York, Illinois, and California is especially egregious, and Ernst calls out Democrats on the bailout.
Axios reports in detail that the massive spending package was passed via budget reconciliation, a process that allows the Senate to approve legislation with a simple majority vote, rather than the usual 60-vote threshold.
-Had Democrats not clinched control of the Senate by winning the two runoff elections in Georgia in January, the size of the package — if one existed at all — would have been far smaller.
-The bill passed in the Senate last week 50-49 after a marathon of late-night amendments, which only began after Republicans forced the clerk to read the entire 628-page bill out loud — a process that took 11 hours.
-The House vote fell almost exactly along party lines, with one Democrat — Rep. Jared Golden of Maine — voting against it.
Details: The bill approves $1,400 stimulus payments for individuals making up to $75,000 and couples making $150,000. It will also extend weekly $300 unemployment insurance until Sept. 6.
