You can tell from what was included in this “stimulus” package who is really important to this Congress–and needy Americans can just go and stand at the end of the line to await their crumbs from the power elite that runs Sodom on the Potomac.
Rep. Chip Roy from Texas noted that: “I will neither endorse a corrupt legislative process nor agree to pass legislation that actively harms our nation This spending bill was nothing short of an embarrassment created by legislative malpractice.”
And one columnist, Glenn Greenwald wondered why Israel got $500 million that was allocated for joint programs between the US and Israel. Fox News noted that As Congress rushed to pass its year-end spending omnibus legislation and a coronavirus stimulus bill in one fell swoop Monday night, many objected to the process which essentially attached the crucial pandemic aid to a bevy of other priorities totaling $2.3 trillion.”
Congressman Roy said “It throws billions at foreign aid, including gender programs in Pakistan to the tune of $10 million…” And while it was observed that the $500 million for Israel was not technically a part of the COVID relief bill, many have wondered why we have so many millions on hand for Israel, Egypt and Pakistan yet we can only afford $600 per needy family in this country. The answer to that is simple–millions of Americans, many of whom probably voted for Trump, a just not that important to Congress. We are, many of us, members of Hillary Clinton’s “deplorables” and so are only worthy of being at the end of the federal gravy train to lick up the drops Congress’ foreign friends can’t be bothered with. That is how important we are to our elected representatives inside the Beltway.
President Trump said he thought each American family should get at least $2000. Quite possibly if Congress were to trim some of the fat from our foreign aid agenda that might be possible, but don’t look for that to happen. Congress’ foreign friends are much more important to them than are those who pay their salaries don’t you know.
And we will finally begin to realize how important we really are(n’t) when it comes time for our Congress critters get to play their part in helping to straighten out this election that was stolen from the people so Harris and Biden could implement Marxist rule in Amerika.
