A number of controversial provisions have been revealed from the newly released emergency coronavirus stimulus bill that was introduced by Nancy Pelosi earlier this week, and they only seem to keep getting worse and worse.
Democrats in the Senate blocked debate on the bill three times in the chamber following days of negotiation on the legislation, and they have been going about with attempts to subvert the bill with a wide range of questionable requests ever since.
Individuals began calling out Speaker Pelosi almost immediately after she introduced the bill, which included additions of mandates for airlines’ carbon emissions, required corporate board diversity, and called for the cancellation of student loans, among many other things deemed acceptable by only Democrats.
Now, as if the proposal couldn’t have seemed to get any worse, the 1,400+ page bill was found to have a whopping $300 million directed for PBS.
Check out what Scott Walker tweeted below:
The stimulus bill for the coronavirus has been in talks throughout Congress for weeks, but disagreements from the Democrats have stalled the legislation multiple times. Originally, the bill included direct payments for American citizens, and additional money for small businesses intended to curb the economic effects of the coronavirus.
Nancy Pelosi has remained firm in her opposition towards the stimulus bill from Republicans aimed at protecting American citizens, claiming that the bill is a “slush fund” with billions of dollars for Secretary Mnuchin and President Donald Trump without proper oversight.
Although Speaker Pelosi has faced significant controversy in the limelight, she remains defiant in her decisions, even claiming that “everything” in her bill was related to the coronavirus while on CNN this Tuesday.
