The mainstream media is parroting the idea that Democrats are concerned about American workers, claiming this is the reason why a deal hasn’t been reached yet in Congress. As usual, the mainstream media is lying. A deal hasn’t been reached because the Democrats only care about abusing their power to gain more power for their self-centered ends.
It’s bad enough that almost every bill passed in both chambers of Congress has loopholes, caveats, nonessential provisions that promote excessive waste, fraud, and abuse of taxpayer dollars. Now Pelosi and her left-wing Democrats think this current crisis is the perfect opportunity to try to extort more money from the government coffers for their socialist-based ideas as they hold America hostage. It’s not surprising, given the fact that anything that hurts individuals, reliable companies, the economy, and the nation in general is usually what Democrats and their liberal supporters go for–whether it be murdering unborn humans, murdering sick people by euthanasia instead of promoting palliative care, single-payer socialized healthcare, decriminalizing or legalizing marijuana, drag queen story hour in libraries, kid drag queen pageants to sexualize children, etc.
The following is a list of unnecessary and harmful things that Democrats are attempting to extort from the coffers and from businesses helped by the potential relief bill:
-Publication of corporate pay statistics by race and race statistics for all corporate boards
-A bail out on all current debt at the Postal Service
-Required early voting
-Required same day voter registration
-Provisions on official time for union collective bargaining (including collective bargaining for federal employees)
-Full offset of airline emissions by 2025
-Publication and reporting of greenhouse gas statistics for individual flights
-Retirement plans for community newspaper employees
-Federal $15 minimum wage
-Permanent paid leave
-Study on climate change mitigation efforts
-Expansion of wind/solar credits
