“You want it bad, you get it bad” is a maxim that applies in spades to must-pass legislation. A case in point is the emergency bill now being finalized in Congress that’s ostensibly aimed at alleviating the damage being done to the American people and economy by the Chinese virus.
Unfortunately, House Democrats have seized upon the opportunity, in the words of their chamber’s third-ranking leader, Rep. Jim Clyburn, “to restructure things to fit our vision.” As a result, the House-passed version would enhance the power of unions, help advance the radical environmentalists’ “Green New Deal” agenda and enable voting fraud on an unprecedented scale.
Initially, Democratic Senators fell into line with Speaker Pelosi’s demands. While they ultimately won’t get everything she wanted, the $2 trillion bill rewards such shakedown artists at the expense – figuratively and literally – of suffering American taxpayers.
