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!

The short clip in the tweet below shows Joe Biden looking away from the interviewer, peering at a camera or monitor or person, saying “I lost that line.” In other words, it is blatantly evident that he is being spoon-fed answers during this interview – and likely others, too. The saddest part? The reporter just goes along with it, as if there’s nothing “off” here. Imagine if Trump did this with Sean Hannity. Instant pandemonium.

How about them apples?

If the mainstream media reported on these quotes from Ruth Bader Ginsburg about NFL players kneeling for the national anthem, a lot of lefties would be very, very disappointed. Ginsburg and conservatives may not have agreed on most issues but at the end of the day, the former Supreme Court justice appeared to be a Democrat who actually loved her country. Check this out, via Breitbart: As America continues to reflect on the life of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, it is notable to remember that she was not a supporter of former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick’s protests during the national anthem. […] “I think it’s really dumb of them,” Ginsburg said of Kaepernick’s protests during an interview with Katie Couric in October of 2016. RBG added, “If they want to be stupid, there’s no law that should be preventive. If they want to be arrogant, there’s no law that prevents them from that. What I would do is strongly take issue with the point of view that they are expressing when they do that.” Here are some reactions from the Twitter world on RBG’s passing… https://twitter.com/Breaking911/status/1307151318201622528 https://twitter.com/BillClinton/status/1307143819478159360 https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1307146028555014145 https://twitter.com/politico/status/1307149781186342917 https://twitter.com/BreitbartNews/status/1307146967420727296 https://twitter.com/TomFitton/status/1307142540123090944 https://twitter.com/nowthisnews/status/1307157591836033027 https://twitter.com/ABC/status/1307157179133296640
