Look at Pelosi’s stimulus demands that are unrelated to Cov-19


Townhall’s political editor Guy Benson has spoken with GOP aides to find out what the holdup is on the new stimulus. As we noted, Speaker Pelosi saw an opportunity here and swooshed in with new demands that have nothing to do with the virus.

According to the report, Democrats are demanding unprecedented collective bargaining powers for unions, increased fuel emissions standards for [struggling] airlines, and the expansion of wind and solar tax credits.

As Pelosi has been quoted saying, she has the GOP “over a barrel.”

Benson’s source told him, “…not only are these completely unrelated to the coronavirus epidemic, they could prevent companies from participating in the loan programs altogether—directly causing unnecessary layoffs.”

Let’s not forget what the Majority Whip said in a call last week: “This is a tremendous opportunity to restructure things to fit our vision,” James Clyburn (D-S.C.) told lawmakers.


She has also wanted oppressive ObamaCare provisions for the uninsured, and provisions to protect individuals from eviction, foreclosure, or forbearance. The wording could suggest permanency. A few weeks ago, she insisted on funding for Planned Parenthood.

The Marxist Speaker has recessed the House so the GOP has to agree to her bill. She will not agree to anything but a bad deal that hurts the President.

After publication, we added a more complete list of demands by the Speaker:

  • bail out the post office,
  • pay off some portion of college loans.
  • publish corporate pay stats by race for all corporate boards,
  • permanent paid leave,
  • mandate a federal minimum wage of $15,
  • commission a study on climate change,
  • rescued companies must abide by the Democrat rules,
  • require early voting and same-day voting,
  • provide cash for unions via official time for collective bargaining,
  • a full offset of airline emissions,
  • the publication of greenhouse gas emissions for flights,
  • cash payments for everyone,
  • double the endowment for the arts to $300 million
  • and retirement plans for newspaper employees — nothing like making newspapers even more beholden to Democrat politicians.

We are the collateral damage:

NB: We added the demands after publication.

I, as a blue collar middle age Male, was looking forward to retirement in a few years. This is after being gainfully employed my entire life, paid off my morgage, any tax ever levied on me,every bill I ever made for my self , and on time I may add, raised a family,and voted in every election since 1977. I think I have earned the right to complain. Politicians should not be allowed to use my tax money for their own benefit. By this I’m referring to the way they give away tax dollars to buy votes in the next election. There must be be more restrictions on the way they spend our tax dollars. The elected representatives are not there to engineer society, or be in the business of charity. Tax dollars are for the benefit of tax payers. Or why bother ?

Pelosi and anyone that is goose stepping to her beat will be remembered at election time. Why anyone would follow her example of self serving politics at such a critical time is as delusional as Pelosi. Remember you are elected to serve the citizens of this nation. This is the time to stand up and do what is best for everyone. Not personal agendas.
