The Democrats in the  House of Representatives released the details of a fifth Coronavirus related Stimulus bill that costs as much as the first four legislative measures combined.

In releasing this bill, Speaker Nancy Pelosi may have just framed the choice voters will have to make when they vote in November 2020.

Will they support the putting first good government activism of the forward-oriented Democrats as evidenced in this proposal or will the people embrace the reactionary backward ideas geared to the one percent championed by the 2016 Popular Vote Loser Demagogue and his Republican fiscal hypocrites.

What is in the latest Coronavirus Stimulus Bill?

  • More aid to state and local governments which includes “$500 billion for states, $375 billion for local governments, $20 billion for tribal communities, and another $20 billion for territories like Puerto Rico, Guam, and the US Virgin Islands.”
  • Another round of direct payments to individuals ($1200 for a single person, $2400 for married couples and $1200 each for up to three dependents.)
  • $200 Billion in Hazard Pay for Essential Employees.
  • Additional Funding for Coronavirus testing and tracking.
  • Extended unemployment insurance past July when the current extension runs out.
  • Greater Aid for small businesses.
  • Expanding SNAP-Food Stamp eligibility and payments.
  • Funding election security and vote by mail.
  • Provision of $25 billion for the Post Office.
  • Nine months of COBRA health care payments for people laid off work.

Who can be against some or all of these proposals?

Many Republicans of course who have called the proposal dead on arrival.

David Popp, an aide to Mitch McConnell (who spent time last night peddling lies to Donald Trumps daughter in law that Barack Obama did not leave guidance on how to combat a pandemic in January 2017,) tweeted that this was a “lib wish list on steroids.”

Unprincipled Republican backstabber (just ask Joe Biden) Lindsey Graham (who is losing some support for not defending the late John McCain) and fellow South Carolina Senator Tim Scott said that any extension of unemployment insurance would pass “over their dead bodies.”

McConnell, Florida Senator Rick Scott, Martha McSally, and the President of Betrayal have stated they, unlike other Republicans like Larry Hogan, Mitt Romney, and Bill Cassidy, do not want any aid to go to blue states.

Are not Americans living in the Blue States too?

When voters see what the Democrats want to do for the people (especially those working jobs that potentially threaten their health) and what the Republicans want to do for God knows what, the choice should be clear on what side to choose when the elections come in November.
