After winning the Nevada caucus on Saturday, Democrat Socialist Bernie Sanders (VT) seems to be the clear cut frontrunner for the liberal party’s presidential nomination. Joe Biden and Elizabeth Warren (MA) are seemingly on their last legs. From Fox News:

Sen. Bernie Sanders will win the Nevada caucuses, Fox News can project, furthering the democratic socialist’s lead over his Democratic rivals and raising the question as to whether he can be stopped on his path to the Democratic nomination.

Bernie had a message for the GOP and Democrat establishments on Saturday. People on Twitter quickly pointed out the irony.

REACTIONS:

The Biden campaign dropped just over $1 million in private jet travel during the final three months of 2019. The Warren campaign spent over $725,000, while the Buttigieg campaign spent nearly $325,000.

However, Bernie’s camp takes the cake.

From Free Beacon:

The Bernie Sanders campaign spent just under $1.2 million on private jet travel last quarter, outpacing the entire 2020 Democratic presidential primary field.

The most recent filing from Sanders reveals $1,199,579 in spending during the final three months of 2019 to Apollo Jets, LLC, a “luxury private jet charter service.” The campaign spent an additional $23,941 for transportation to Virginia-based Advanced Aviation Team.

Gov. Cuomo Says NY ‘Comfortable’ With Number Of Protective Equipment And Ventilators They Have

Published

on

According to New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, his state is “relatively comfortable” with the number of ventilators and other protective equipment it is in possession of right now. New York is the state that’s been hit the hardest in the coronavirus outbreak and has been struggling with keeping an adequate supply of medical equipment to protect medical professionals and help treat patients who have tested positive for COVID-19. Many of the shortages have focused on items like gloves, masks, and ventilators. However, as of Friday, Cuomo said New York now has enough equipment to function. Here’s more from The Washington Examiner: “We’re OK right now. We’re OK. PPE you need every day. We have a stockpile where we are now relatively comfortable,” Cuomo said. “Remember, what we’re saying to these hospitals, they’re all uncomfortable. If you ask any hospital if they have enough PPE, they will say no. It is like asking a budget director does he have enough revenue. They will never say yes.” He continued, “These hospitals are accustomed to having a one-month to two-month stockpile. They are now looking at several days of stockpile. So, they are all uncomfortable, but we only have several days for any hospital. And we do have several days for every hospital, and we do have a supply that’s coming in. So, compared to how we have been operating on this new dire circumstances, we are relatively comfortable with ventilators and PPE.” Cuomo made it clear the current situation could change if the rate of hospitalizations for the coronavirus were to suddenly spike up again. As of now, the state has been seeing the numbers level off a bit over the last several days. The governor stated that he talks with hospitals daily and gets reports concerning the supplies these facilities have…

House Democrats Propose Legislation To Cover All Wages During COVID-19 Outbreak

Published

A group of Democrats within the House of Representatives are looking to propose a new bill that would cover 100 percent of most worker paychecks throughout the COVID-19 crisis that is making people sick, killing our vulnerable citizens, and destroying out economy and way of life. Of course, the biggest concern with such an idea is where in the world the money is going to come from. If the assumption there is that they are going to just print money to try and cover the cost, that’s a very, very bad idea. Inflation will make the dollar worth less than it already is and cause the cost of living to skyrocket. Here’s more on this from The Washington Examiner: Rep. Pramila Jayapal, a Washington Democrat and co-chairwoman of the Congressional Progressive Caucus, announced the Paycheck Guarantee Act, which she said would provide “a federal paycheck” to workers, covering 100% of earnings up to $100,000. “A federal paycheck guarantee is a real solution that matches the scale of the crisis. Mass unemployment is a policy choice. We can and should choose differently,” Jayapal said in a statement Friday. “A federal paycheck guarantee would stanch more layoffs and unemployment, and quickly and reliably deliver relief to workers. Workers would not be forced to apply for unemployment insurance, overwhelm that system and then have to once again find a job. Businesses of all sizes would be able to keep workers on payroll and benefits — and be able to quickly re-open — partially or fully, without having to rehire and retrain their workforce.” Just last month both Congress and President Trump put into law a bill that called for $2.2 trillion — that’s “trillion” with a “t” — to provide $1,200 in cash payments and expanded unemployment benefits to up to four months…
