No, The Coronavirus Emergency Spending Bill Still Hasn't Made It to the Senate. Here's Why.

The Democrats just can't seem to help themselves, not enough "Death" got to get more money for the abortions, in on this bill. The Bill is to be a help up for those businesses, hurt by the shut down. Democrats hate business so they are going to be difficult to the end, Because, no one should survive, UNLESS they give permission!



No, The Coronavirus Emergency Spending Bill Still Hasn't Made It to the Senate. Here's Why.

In the wee hours of Saturday morning, the U.S. House of Representatives passed H.R. 6201, the Families First Coronavirus Response Act after many negotiations between House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin. Forty Republicans voted against the bill, sparking outrage from leftists on Twitter. Yet when the Senate returned on Monday, the House had yet to turn over the emergency coronavirus bill for passage.

As it turns out, "the bill remains hung up in negotiations between Speaker Nancy Pelosi and the White House," Politico reported, citing "multiple Capitol Hill sources."

"We still do not have a final draft of the negotiated changes being called ’technical corrections’ and some of us believe that the newly worded laws should be finished before we pass them," Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Texas) tweeted on Monday afternoon.
These "technical corrections" come after Republicans cried foul over the underhanded way Pelosi handled the spending bill.
Gohmert released an in-depth statement on Saturday that helped clarify what had happened.

"There was a great deal more money in the original bill this week going to things that had nothing to do with our Coronavirus national emergency – including a provision that provided for federally funded abortions," he explained. "Our President stood firm on things that needed to be in there and to take out things that did not. As a good leader does, he left the specific language of the bill to the so-called experts in Congress. However, the actual wording is too often done by staff members who have never run a business, filed a quarterly tax report, or ever had to cut expenses to stay in business."

Democrats Block Senate Coronavirus Package

Sean Moran22 Mar 2020

Democrats blocked a coronavirus package on Sunday that would provide economic relief to businesses and Americans suffering from the impact of the coronavirus outbreak.

The Senate GOP package failed, with 47 votes in favor and 47 against, which fell 13 votes short of what was necessary to advance the legislation.
An angry Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) slammed Democrats for voting against the bill and blamed House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) for nixing bipartisan negotiations over a coronavirus package.

“I want everybody to fully understand if we aren’t able to act tomorrow, it will be because of our colleagues on the other side continuing to dicker when the country expects us to come together and address the problem,” the Senate leader said on Sunday.
McConnell added that there was bipartisan consensus among “regular members of the Senate, not in the
Leadership office, not in the speaker’s office for goodness sakes.”

The Real Reasons Democrats Stopped the Coronavirus Stimulus Bill
On Sunday, Senate Democrats blocked the massive $2 trillion coronavirus stimulus bill intended to inject new life into an economy struggling to survive under the weight of social distancing necessary to combat the global pandemic. Democrats claimed they opposed the bill because it would give Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin the ability to direct billions in a secret "slush fund" — which he would ostensibly use to benefit political allies and President Donald Trump's companies, but Democrats had other reasons to delay the bill, as well.

Congress has already passed — and the president has already signed — two emergency coronavirus measures earlier this month. The current stimulus bill has been worked out in meetings involving Mnuchin, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.), House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), and House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.).

Yet after these negotiations — which involved a great deal of compromise on both sides — Democrats blocked the bill on Sunday night, The Hill reported. Democrats condemned what they call a secret "slush fund" for corporate America, Politico reported. The stimulus bill includes a $500 billion "Exchange Stabilization Fund" under Mnuchin's control, designed to help industries struggling from the fallout of the coronavirus. It includes $58 billion for U.S. airlines and air cargo companies.

"We’re gonna give $500 billion in basically a slush fund to help industries controlled by Mnuchin with very little transparency? Is that what we ought to be doing?" Sen. Mazie Hirono (D-Hawaii.) asked, rhetorically.

"We're not here to create a slush fund for Donald Trump and his family, or a slush fund for the Treasury Department to be able to hand out to their friends," railed Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), fresh off a failed presidential campaign. "We're here to help workers, we're here to help hospitals. And right now, what the Republicans proposed does neither of those."

A Democratic aide dropped an essential clue when discussing the bill with The Hill. The aide complained that the stimulus bill's small business provision would exclude nonprofits that receive Medicaid from being eligible for Small Business Administration assistance. The aide complained that this provision would impact Planned Parenthood, community health centers, rape crisis centers, and disability service providers.

As PJ Media's Rick Moran pointed out, Planned Parenthood is not a "small business," and neither are nonprofits.
On Monday, a senior Republican aide told Townhall's Guy Benson that Schumer and Pelosi are pushing "unprecedented collective bargaining powers for unions," "increased fuel emissions standards for airlines," and "expansion of wind and solar tax credits." These provisions would arguably make the situation even worse for businesses.
Democrats may hope to get more of their liberal wish-list crammed into the coronavirus stimulus bill because Senate Republicans entered self-quarantine after Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) tested positive for the coronavirus. Sens. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) and Mike Lee (R-Utah) missed the vote because they entered self-quarantine after exposure to Rand Paul. Sens. Cory Gardner (R-Colo.) and Rick Scott (R-Fla.) also entered self-quarantine unrelated to Rand Paul's announcement.

Democrats are engaging in political gamesmanship on this essential stimulus bill in part because some of their Republican colleagues are out-of-pocket due to the very coronavirus their bill is aiming to combat. This is utterly disgusting.

While Democrats loudly complained about a "slush fund," they did not adopt one of the most obvious responses to it — a response put forth by the Heritage Foundation. Companies impacted by Americans' efforts to combat the coronavirus should receive some relief, but a bailout is arguably the wrong way to go about providing it. The Heritage Foundation suggested a two-pronged alternative: first, apply the same paid sick and family leave provisions granted to small business employees to workers at large businesses; and second, the government can "pre-purchase expected goods and services to supply businesses with liquidity."
Democrats are right to fear an unchecked government expansion to meet the coronavirus crisis — in fact, their fears that Mnuchin might abuse government funds in this crisis should serve as an important warning about the big-government solutions Democrats favor. "Progressives" support government solutions in part because they assume they will always be in control of the government — always a dangerous assumption.

Yet the coronavirus crisis is no time for political gamesmanship, and it appears Democrats are working overtime not to let this crisis "go to waste."

It is such an opportune time for the Democrats to stop the the Trump government from offering "Relief" in such a unprecedented times. Their hate and greed, will always dictate their responses over what has a possitive effect FOR the people.

May be that Cher, Pelosi and Schumer should be put in charge of this crisis. I'm sure that would make every one feel better, right?
