The results of Grassfire's "COVID Boondoggle?" QuickPoll are in. We wanted to know if you think House Republicans should fight against the Democrats' $1.9 trillion "stimulus" plan that they're trying to disguise as "COVID relief." More than 97% of respondents said, "YES!" So, the battle against the boondoggle continues!
Tomorrow, this highly partisan bill moves to the Senate for debate and a floor vote expected late Thursday. So, time is short! Republicans MUST take immediate action to stop Congress from funding the far-Left's radical and extreme agenda. Click here to fax GOP Senators now!
"The American Rescue Plan Act of 2021" calls for billions and billions of taxpayer dollars to be spent on liberal giveaways that do little or nothing to fight coronavirus. It's a Democrat "wish list" of progressive "pork" that doesn't do enough to help struggling families, small businesses, schools or those most at risk to the coronavirus.
On Sunday, Sen. Rob Portman (R-OH) told ABC News' "This Week": "It's $1.9 trillion. More than half of it won’t even be spent in this calendar year. ... So how could it be about COVID relief? ... A number of things in here have nothing to do with COVID relief."
Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-FL), who's done an incredible job leading the Sunshine State through the pandemic, said almost exactly the same thing yesterday. A harsh critic of the supposed "relief bill," he stated at a press conference:
"So much of [this bill] has nothing to do with COVID. I think, in some respects, it's kind of Washington at its worst yet again."
DeSantis also criticized how the legislation, crafted by Democrats, helps "blue states" whose leaders shutdown their economies and hurts "red states" that were less restrictive in their COVID strategy. Florida's governor wants federal-aid money for states to be distributed equally based on population:
"If you're going to send it, it should be fair, and we shouldn’t be penalizing states for doing a good job. But that is exactly what this bill does. ... States like New York and California, who have higher unemployment, are benefiting. They're getting a windfall of two, three, four billion dollars. That is completely unfair."
When Representatives were debating "Pelosi's Progressive Payoff" in the House last week, Grassfire warned our team members that this wasteful, impractical bill throws billions of taxpayer dollars at Democrat-run states. For a full year, blue-state leaders have failed their citizens through draconian closures, shutdowns and lockdowns. Now, with Democrats in power, they're being rewarded for it?
This radical-left, liberal giveaway -- backed by the Biden administration -- MUST BE STOPPED!
