    "We don't want you to read it, before you pass it..."

    Kind of like "You have to pass it before you find out what's in it." Sound familiar?

    House Republicans to Expose ‘Liberal Goodies’ Hidden in $1.9T COVID Bill

    The largest conservative caucus in the House is sharing a new playbook with members outlining plans to fight back against President Biden’s $1.9 trillion coronavirus relief bill by exposing all of the “liberal goodies” hidden within the package, according to a new report.

    The three-page memo created by the Republican Study Committee lists “all the left-wing items Democrats are hoping the public won’t find out about,” according to Fox News.

    “The RSC is leading conservatives inside and outside the Beltway in opposition to this so-called ‘relief package.’ The more we learn about it, the worse it sounds,” Representative Jim Banks (R., Ind.), the chairman of the RSC, told Fox News. “That’s why we’ve put together a fact sheet to educate Americans exactly how their taxpayer dollars are being spent by Democrats.”

    The conservatives are hoping to draw attention to a number of left-wing provisions, including mixed-status families with undocumented immigrants’ eligibility to receive $1,400 stimulus checks and Planned Parenthood’s eligibility to receive funds from the Paycheck Protection Program that are intended to aid small businesses.

    Other areas of concern include nearly $600 million for additional emergency paid family leave for federal employees and U.S. Postal Service workers; subsidies and loan forgiveness to farmers and ranchers on the basis of race and ethnicity; allowing colleges with partnerships with Chinese-controlled companies and Confucius Institutes to receive COVID funding; and allocations of $50 million for environmental-justice-grant programs, which the RSC calls “a thinly-veiled kickback to leftist environmental groups.”

    The memo draws attention to provisions in the bill that would extend PPP business funding to owners who could have a felony record, including “violent criminals,” and extend Medicaid eligibility for incarcerated inmates during the 30 days prior to their release.

    The memo comes as the House Budget Committee is set to take up the 591-page COVID-relief plan on Monday, with a full House vote on the legislation possible later this week.

    I’m sure they’re making it sound far worse than it is, but fact is, there ain’t nothing new in this bill than was Trumps first one...it’s just a continuation.

    And since Republicans have no clue about actually governing and dumped this fiasco on Democrats, prolly best to just let them fix what needs to be fixed...again.

      Fiasco? What fiasco?

      It was the Dems who created the majority of the problem by denying it existed back in January and February of 2020. Then they screamed about how "cruel" Trump's attempts were to control the spread of the virus and shut all efforts down. Then, once they actually realized it was a problem, started screaming about how ineffective Trump was at controlling it.

      There's your "fiasco."

        Revisionist history....Trump controlled the agenda, McConnell controlled the Senate...it all happened on Trumps watch.
