Politico: Democrats Want COVID Welfare Provisions to ‘Last Well Beyond the Pandemic Itself’

Breitbart

Published

on

Politico reported Sunday the Democrats are taking advantage of this opportunity during the Chinese coronavirus pandemic. “Getting something out of the [tax] code is often harder than getting something into the code,” House Ways and Means Chair Richard Neal (D-MA) said. “What we did is unlikely to go away.”

Even before the legislation was signed into law, Rep. Rosa DeLauro (D-CT) stated, “We have been focused on these issues a very long time, but the moment has met us,” adding, “We are ready to move forward with a number of the areas that have not in the past been able to get that traction, that universal support.”

President Joe Biden believes, “the bill ‘changes the paradigm’ by moving away from the theory of trickle-down economics and instead putting working people first — the first time that has happened, [Biden] said, since Lyndon Johnson was president in the 1960s.”

Indeed, Democrats “are exploring whether Biden’s second stimulus package — another multitrillion dollar plan that Democrats are hoping to release by late May — could be a vehicle for that move,” Politico reported.

If that strategy does not increase the welfare state, Democrats may attempt another standalone legislation effort, similar to DeLauro’s introduced bill in February.

Such entitlement expansion has not excited many Republicans. After the legislation cleared both chambers, Sen. Rick Scott (R-FL) accused the Democrats of “living in a fantasy land where debt doesn’t matter, spending has no consequences, and inflation is impossible.”

However, Breitbart News reported on March 8 that Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) “unveiled a proposal on February 4 to provide a monthly cash benefit to families with children.” White House Chief of Staff Ron Klain stated at the time he was “looking forward” to seeing what is in the measure:

Joe Biden Defiant in Face of Grim Economic Report: ‘Our Economy is Moving in the Right Direction’

Breitbart

Published

on

“Today there is more evidence that our economy is moving in the right direction, but it’s clear we have a long way to go,” he said.

The president dismissed media commentary pointing out the disparity between the estimated job creation numbers and the jobs actually created in April.

“Listening to commentators today as I was getting dressed, you might think that we should be disappointed,” Biden said with a chuckle.

Unemployment rose to 6.1 percent in April, the report noted, the first time unemployment increased since April 2020 when the coronavirus pandemic began. Although analysts had expected up to a million jobs created in April, only 266,000 jobs were actually reported.

Biden stressed that the report was actually good news.

“Quite frankly, we’re moving more rapidly than I thought we would,” he said, arguing he always felt the recovery would be a “marathon” not a “sprint.”

Republicans questioned Biden’s decision to send expanded $300 a week checks to unemployed Americans until September 2021, arguing it was keeping workers on the sidelines during the pandemic.

But Biden said the economic news only proved the checks were necessary

“This is progress,” Biden continued. “And it’s a testament to our new strategy of growing this economy from the bottom up and the middle out.”

Biden also defended his call for $6 trillion in spending and dramatic tax hikes on businesses and the wealthy to boost the economy.

“The American people are counting on us. So, let’s get it done,” he said.

TOXIC AND UNHINGED: Liz Cheney Went Rogue – Organized Oped Against President Trump in Washington Post with 10 Former Defense Secretaries

Gateway Pundit

This is such an embarrassment to the Republicans in Congress.

Where are the leaders?  Where are the bold Republicans who stand up to the disastrous leadership in the House GOP Caucus?

Not only is Liz Cheney openly working to burn down the Republican Party — she was also sneaking around behind the scenes to destroy President Trump and the entire party!

Liz Cheney worked behind the scenes to organize an oped against President Trump with 10 former living Defense Secretaries.

Via The New Yorker:

The oped was published by the Washington Post in early January 2021. The defense ministers cautioned President Trump about using the military in “pursuing claims of election fraud.”

This is reason enough to push this toxic politician from the Grand Old Party. She is a traitor and cannot be trusted.

Cheney pushed back against President Trump his entire administration. And this was despite his stellar foreign policy and greatest achievements by a US President since Ronald Reagan defeated the Soviet communists in the Cold War.

BREAKING EXCLUSIVE: After Only a Few Days in Jail, HUNTER BIDEN’S PIMP Was Suddenly and Mysteriously Released to a Treatment Center Rather Than Serving Years in Prison

The woman who Hunter dealt with when ordering prostitutes in Connecticut, Dianna Pagano (Hunter’s Pimp), was suddenly released from jail last Wednesday in Connecticut.  She was ordered to go to a treatment center rather than face years in prison. 

The woman who served as Hunter’s pimp in Connecticut has suddenly been released from jail and placed in a treatment center.  Dianna Pagano was sitting in a jail in Connecticut waiting for her sentencing on various charges when a hearing was conducted on Wednesday, and Pagano was suddenly ordered to go to a treatment center.

Pagano was arrested for intending to sell drugs:

Pagano was also charged with failure to appear and violating the conditions of her probation:

Pagano also was charged with failure to appear a second time and violating her conditions of release:

Pagano was facing time in prison for these charges but then suddenly she was released from jail and allowed to go to a treatment center instead.  This is all in the minutes of the court hearing from last Wednesday, April 28, 2021:

Could it be Pagano was released to a treatment center because she was close to Hunter Biden?  In fact, she was really close to Hunter. Here’s what we do know.  

In late February and early March of 2019, Pagano was exchanging texts with Hunter.  We know this because we have the texts (from Hunter’s laptop) and we can track the texts to their phones.  Pagano was also requesting money through a PayPal account from Hunter.

Pagano was asking for money and help to pay some guy off.  We don’t know for what at this time.  In another instance in Connecticut, we have evidence of Pagano arranging the delivery of a girl to Hunter’s hotel.  Below are the texts and the pickup and drop-off locations.  Note that Hunter was getting upset about the whole ordeal.

In November 2019 Pagano was arrested for drugs and prostitution at a home in East Haven, Connecticut.  This is the same girl Hunter was working with to pick up and drop off a woman earlier that year.

Here’s the police article on Pagano from East Haven.  She owned or rented the property used as a brothel:

The question remains, how did Pagano, with all her prior records and arrests, obtain a ‘get out of jail free’ card and go to a treatment center instead of prison?  Did this have anything to do with her close relationship with Hunter Biden?
