Dems pack pandemic response bill with pork, identity politics

Empower Wisconsin | March 25, 2020

Altruism is dead in D.C., but pork barrel funding is alive and well — especially amid a national health crisis. 

The Dems’ massive coronavirus response package includes hefty provisions that have nothing to do with combatting the COVID-19 outbreak. 

The bill is dripping with identity politics, says Fox News’ Tucker Carlson. 

Watch Tucker’s take here.

  • To bad we can’t outlaw stupidity. Pelosi, Schumer, Nadler,Schiff and crew would be
    banished forever. How inhumane is it not to worry about the crisis but try to use
    the crisis to steal money that should be used for the pressing issues at hand.
    Unemployment,health safety,health treatment, etc. etc. etc.
    Sad excuses for human beings, let alone someone WHO is supposed to represent AMERICANS….
