Democrats Stall Stimulus Package Purposefully to Make President Trump Look Bad
Nancy Pelosi would like to keep Americans and Joe Biden indoors at least until the election. On the other hand, Republicans want to scale back the $600 weekly bonus unemployment payments. For many workers, they can “earn” more money staying at home than at their regular jobs. Republicans want to keep the ratio at about 70 percent as an incentive to get people back to work.
The leader of the political party that gave us generations of welfare moms, who earned more money having children out of wedlock than a husband could bring home, had this to say about Republicans: “We don’t have shared values. We recognize the gravity of the situation, they don’t.”
Apparently overlooking the feces littered streets of her own home district, Speaker Pelosi was only half right. The “same values” she was referring to is the deep, abiding hatred of a President she would rather defeat than pass a stimulus bill for the good of the American people.
President Trump and his allies in the Senate have the same values when it comes to recovering from the Chinese pandemic. They want to help people get back to work and have life return to normal. They want schools to open and the whining teachers unions to do a better job educating our children. The difference is, as always, the role of government and self-reliance.
Republican Senator Lindsay Graham hit the nail on the head: Democrats don’t want any solution that gives President Trump credit. They view the coronavirus and its bad effect on the economy as their last best hope to elect their doddering basement candidate, Gropey Joe Biden.
Another liberal Democrat New York Times columnist who can’t stand President Trump penned some advice for Joe Biden. Wrote Friedman, “I worry about Joe Biden debating Donald Trump. He should do it only under two conditions. Otherwise, he’s giving Trump unfair advantages.”
Those “advantages” would be President Trump actually doing presidential business while Joe Biden lurked in his basement like a stoned teenager. Then there’s the fact that President Trump will actually know where he is up on the debate stage.
Friedman wrote that Biden’s debating President Trump would not be a “good way” to reintroduce himself to the American people. Friedman would only support a debate if President Trump released his tax returns so that Americans could have a transparent view of both candidates. (Probably not a great idea for Joe, given the big bucks he earned for Hunter after their trip to China on Air Force 2.)
Friedman also wants instant fact checkers standing by if President Trump gets to bragging about all the good stuff he did while President.
In any case, Senator Graham foresees a deal for a fourth coronavirus stimulus package. Our government will once again spend $1 trillion as Washington, DC continues its role as bipartisan cash cow mortgaging our financial future.
Also, Friedman’s bad advice notwithstanding, Joe Biden cannot afford to stay in his basement and avoid a debate that Americans expect. Guest appearances on The View and the Colbert Late Show just won’t cut it. He has to prove that his cognitive functions are running on all cylinders—which his handlers are afraid he definitely cannot do.
