House Dems Look To Stuff Coronavirus Bill With Funding For Unrelated Liberal Causes

House Democrats aren't about to let a really good crisis go to waste and are loading up bills intended to provide coronavirus relief with their pet projects.
In yet another disgraceful example of how the morally bankrupt party cares little about real Americans, top House Dems chatted on a conference call to put together a wish list that is more about politics than emergency assistance.
According to one report, one of those flexing his muscles to exploit the crisis was South Carolina kingmaker James Clyburn who stated:
“This is a tremendous opportunity to restructure things to fit our vision”
Clyburn has been elevated to demigod status with Dems after he used his clout as a leader of the Congressional Black Caucus to convince his state's black voters to show up at the polls in the primary to rescue Joe Biden.
It is not an overstatement to say that Clyburn set off a chain reaction that along with DNC and media assistance, led to a string of Biden wins and the crushing of Bernie Sanders' socialist revolution.
Via The Hill, "House Democrats eyeing much broader Phase 3 stimulus":
House Democrats are indicating they want to go bigger and broader than the already massive economic stimulus package offered by Senate Republicans to blunt the coronavirus pandemic.
On a Thursday conference call featuring more than 200 members of the House Democratic caucus, lawmakers one by one laid out a sweeping wish list of provisions they want to see included in the nascent package, including a boost in infrastructure spending, an expansion of Social Security benefits and funding for states to set up an all-mail voting system in the event the pandemic extends into November’s elections.
“This is a tremendous opportunity to restructure things to fit our vision,” Majority Whip James Clyburn (D-S.C.) told lawmakers, according to a source on the call.
One of the Dems' top priorities is a vote by mail system in time for the November election that would be an invitation for election tampering through ballot manipulation because if you can't beat 'em, cheat 'em.
According to California Democrat Jared Huffman:
“We want to make sure that we get adequate relief to people who need it most, and that there be some economic sideboards on the things we do, so that we're not just sending checks to wealthy people who don't need money, so that we're not just rewarding corporations,”
Rep. Huffman also proclaimed:
“You're obviously not going to get a package done without Speaker Pelosi having a huge role in it. There's just not a way for that to work, nor should there be”
“The House has been the lead on this from day one, and I don't see any reason why we would suddenly step back and let Mitch McConnell drive the ship.”
With the Democrats, it is always all about politics despite their pontifications and posturing.
The party of impeachment is proud to be the party of extortion by obstructing President Trump's efforts to quickly deliver assistance to Americans who will be hit harder by the economic cataclysm triggered by mass hysteria than the virus itself.
Shame on them ALL!
