President Trump Considers Unilateral Action Over COVID-19 Relief Bill Jammed Up In Congress

Published

The Trump administration is working hard to find a solution to move the latest coronavirus aid package through without the need for congressional approval after the bill has gotten stuck between the White House and mostly liberal lawmakers on Capitol Hill who want to use the legislation as a means of trying to get “wish list” items passed into law.

A senior administration official spoke with Fox News on Monday saying that the White House is looking into a number of different options to try and ease the economic hardships that have resulted from the effects of the coronavirus and the subsequent shutdowns used to try and slow the spread of the virus.

“As the negotiations continue to progress as a snail’s pace, the administration is considering a number of options that might be available without congressional legislative action,” the official told Fox News.

At this point, it is unclear what item the administration could attempt unilateral action on, but much of the negotiations on Capitol Hill have come to a stalemate with regards to unemployment benefits.

“Those that are counting on enhanced unemployment need to be gravely concerned about the lack of progress,” White House chief of staff Mark Meadows told Fox News. “My recommendation would be for them to call their members of Congress and their senators and ask them why they are not willing to compromise when obviously the White House is willing to compromise.”

Meadows then went on to add, “There are two things standing in the way to a deal on enhanced unemployment benefits continuing. One is Sen. [Chuck] Schumer and Speaker [Nancy] Pelosi and the other is a negotiating tactic that puts people at risk.”

The original enhanced unemployment benefits offered folks who were put out of work an additional $600 a week. This program expired at the end of July, but Democrats want to continue it as part of the new package. However, many folks in the Republican Party have noted that this amount makes some individuals earn more money than they did when they were working, which might disincentivize folks from wanting to return back to work.

The Republican HEALS Act, which is going to cost taxpayers $1 trillion compared to the $3 trillion from the HEROES Act the Democratic Party wants — only provides an additional $200 a week.

Republicans have offered to allow the extra $600 for one more week while negotiations continue, but the Democrats rejected it.

At the end of the day, none of this is good for the economic future of America. The only way forward is for a full reopening of our economy and allowing folks to get back to normal as much as possible.

Yes, this does come with some risks. However, the repercussions of not doing it will be devastating and take years to repair, if they can even be repaired at all.

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
