Congress celebrated Monday that a coronavirus “relief” bill was OKayed. But this thing is a nightmare of pork, goodies to special interests, giveaways to foreigners, and cash for left-wing programs.
There is hardly anything in it for coronavirus relief. This mess is more than 5,000 pages of freebies stuffed into this thing. This bill is the worst.
So, what is in this trillion-dollar porker?
There is so much crap in this thing that it boggles the mind. And little of it has anything to do with the virus.
Take a look at some of this garbage:
-Illegal aliens will be eligible for the $600 coronavirus relief. But so will their illegal alien family members. AND it will be retroactive, meaning they’ll suddenly get the earlier $1,200 check, too!
-The bill includes a section that allows for the importation of thousands of foreign workers with the H-2B visa program.
-The bill gives $250 million to the so-called “Palestinians,” who are nothing but terrorists.
-It has a provision that makes you a criminal if you steam video online that you don’t own the copyright to.
-The bill adds a tax break to people who own racehorses.
-$65 million to help conserve fish in the western U.S. is added.
-Six billion for the “global war on terrorism” is also included.
-Then there are the millions in Pell grants for the education of prison inmates.
-Billions in cash for “carbon removal” and climate change is there.
-A “Climate Security Advisory Council” is outlined in this porker.
-Foreign relief for Sri Lanka and $700 million to the Sudan was added.
And that is just what we know of so far.
This bill is an absolute disaster.
