Coronavirus Relief Negotiations Hit Yet Another Snag, This Time The Obstacle Is State Aid

Published

on

Trump administration officials and leaders within the Democratic Party continue to remain at a stalemate when it comes to negotiating another coronavirus relief package, as money for state and local governments appears as yet another snag in the negotiations.

Of course, the left has also been trying to politicize this relief package and use it to get some wish list items of their passed into law, which is also not helping things.

As of now, both sides in the debate over the relief package are bickering about whether or not states should receive more funding in the next round of emergency funding, and if so, how much is appropriate.

Negotiators are trying to close the divide between the Senate Republicans’ $1 trillion HEALS Act, which includes no new funding for states, and the House’s $3.4 trillion HEROES Act, which allocates about $1 trillion in new funding for state and local governments.

The stalemate puts at risk potentially trillions of dollars in aid for families, businesses and the U.S. economy, including a fresh round of $1,200 stimulus checks, extra unemployment aid for millions of out-of-work Americans, $100 billion to help reopen schools and relief for cash-strapped state and local governments.

There were no signs of a détente on Monday, with each party blaming the other for the stalled-out discussions.

Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, one of the lead negotiators in the relief package, referred to the Democrats’ request for $1 trillion for state aid “an absurd number,” stating there’s “plenty” of cash available already for the governments.

“We’re not going to give a trillion dollars for state and local,” he said in an interview with CNBC. “That’s just not a reasonable approach.”

President Trump has also made his feelings clear on this number, and as you might imagine, he’s not at all a big fan. Here’s what he posted on Twitter:

Democrats sounded warning bells by saying without more federal funding, state and local governments would be forced to lay off employees and reduce the number of available essential services to their communities.

Look, we all know everyone is in bad shape right now with all of the layoffs and job losses we’re experiencing as an after effect of the lockdowns. And sure, we should work toward providing some kind of relief to ease the burden, but we have to very careful about how much we spend.

We cannot afford to just print money like crazy and increase inflation. The dollar is already losing a lot of value and purchasing power. Increasing that would be just as disastrous as the damage being wrought by lockdowns.

Let’s hope wise minds prevail and a compromise of some sort is reached.

Save conservative media!

Biden Set to Provide Pathway to Citizenship for Upwards of 20 Million Undocumented Aliens

How do you say, ‘this is a terrible idea,’ in Spanish?

The goal of the Biden administration is simple. It’s not too dissimilar from the goal of the Obama administration’s, either. In a nutshell: destroy America. That’s the plan. From Los Angeles Times: During his first days in office, President-elect Joe Biden plans to send legislation to congress that would provide a pathway to citizenship for 11 million immigrants who are in the country without legal status. Biden’s legislation does not include money to support detention and deportation. Previous immigration bills passed under both Democratic and Republican administrations linked an expansion of immigration with stepped-up enforcement and security measures. CONTINUED: The bill would provide a shorter pathway to citizenship for people with Temporary Protected Status, for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrival (DACA) recipients and likely also for certain frontline essential workers, vast numbers of whom are immigrants. Biden’s proposal would be the most sweeping and comprehensive immigration package since President Reagan’s in 1986 Immigrants would become eligible for legal permanent residence after 5 years and wait 3 more years for U.S. citizenship. After Joe is sworn-in as president, how long will it be before he gives way to Kamala? What say you? A year and half? Two and half years at best?

They’re baaaaaacccckkkkk. Except this time, the United States doesn’t have a strong, pro-American leader in the White House to stop them. Instead, we’re all stuck with beta male Joe and alpha woman Kamala. Lucky us. From New York Post: Guatemalan authorities have detained hundreds of Honduran migrants from the caravan including families with young children, though thousands of others were able to breach border security and continue their march northward, Reuters reported. “We are going to leave the country, to ask for help wherever they receive us,” one migrant told The Associated Press. Some 6,500 souls are on the move, fleeing poverty and political corruption in the hope of ultimately finding a better life in the United States.
