“We Couldn’t Get Everything We Wanted In The Other Bill, Let’s Begin To Go Down This Path”

Reading the tea leaves, it isn’t hard to see how House Democrats have attempted to use the coronavirus emergency to promote their base’s political priorities:

  • Rep. Clyburn said that previous legislation would let House Ds restructure things to fit their “vision”
  • Speaker Pelosi introduced her own bill containing far-left policies unrelated to combatting the coronavirus.

Now, as the Speaker pushes for additional legislation, she’s making the purpose of that effort clear. She told CNN this afternoon:

“We Couldn’t Get Everything We Wanted In The Other Bill, Let’s Begin To Go Down This Path”

As a reminder, here is some of what Speaker Pelosi wanted in the other bill:

-Publication of corporate pay statistics by race and race statistics for all corporate boards

-A bail out on all current debt at the Postal Service

-Required early voting

-Required same day voter registration

-Provisions on official time for union collective bargaining

-Full offset of airline emissions by 2025

-Publication and reporting of greenhouse gas statistics for individual flights

-Retirement plans for community newspaper employees

-Federal $15 minimum wage

-Permanent paid leave

-Study on climate change mitigation efforts

Her dangerous plans will only making it harder for the nation to recover, especially at a time when we need to stand together for the health and safety of the American people.
