It’s official. The United States House just passed a new Coronavirus stimulus package in what many people are calling an attempt by Democrats to push socialist programs amid the pandemic.
According to The Hill, the Democrat controlled U.S. House on Friday barely squezed through a $1.3 trillion spending package for the 2021 fiscal year. The spending package was barely passed, and only managed to squeeze through because Democrats pushed it with their control in the House with a 217-197 vote. Trump is expected to VETO it.
Democrats Push Through Socialist Bill
The Democrat bill pushes socialist programs and BILLIONS of dollars in off-the-book spending for health programs, low income public housing, energy studies, and “human services”. The House, the lower chamber of Congress, cleared the six-bill bundle in a 217-197 vote. Most Republicans rejected the bill as too large for America’s good.
Thankfully, it doesn’t look like the bill has a shot in the Republican controlled Senate. Also, President Donald Trump has already threatened to veto the decision if it ever reaches his desk.
Republicans in the House aren’t happy. Rep. Tom Cole even gave the following statement about the bill, saying:
“Democrats, unfortunately, chose a deeply flawed approach… I remain concerned about the use of emergency-designated funds as a workaround and scheme to break the budget agreement between the two parties and the president.”
Not The First Time
This isn’t the first time that Democrats have tried to sneak past socialist programs through Congress. Just a few days ago, a devastating bill was introduced by Senator Bernie Sanders that would have cut defense spending and moved the money into funding major socialist programs instead.
Thankfully, Bernie Sander’s bill was rejected by Congress. And different variations of the bill were also defeated in the House as well.
