(NewsBreakDaily.org) – In 1943, a psychologist named Abraham Maslow published a tiered concept about how human beings tend to view the importance of fulfilling their needs. Today it’s simply called “Maslow’s Hierarchy.” In general, people are going to be most concerned with essentials like food, water, and safety long before they worry about prestige and entertainment. It seems this is a lesson the Liberals in Congress have forgotten while holed up in their ice cream-laden ivory towers.
House Democrats are putting together another COVID-19 stimulus package — this one’s expected to be a multi-trillion dollar outlay of federal money. If Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-NY) has his way, tens of billions will primarily go to New York City theaters and museums.
NYC isn't NYC without our non-profit museums. But if we want our museums to survive COVID-19, we need to protect them NOW. That's why I led the NYC Congressional delegation with @RepMaloney in calling for $4 billion in emergency funds to equip museums to outlast this pandemic. pic.twitter.com/cRfMpTgEWR

It’s not that the arts aren’t important, but personal protective equipment (PPE) for frontline medical personnel and the like should be a much higher priority. In addition to this pork, Democrats want to include payments to illegal aliens and force landlords to forego their income by legislatively canceling rent payment. As Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) put it: “[w]e need to be able to play hardball.”
Time and again, Progressive politicians put their agenda ahead of the American people they claim to represent. They even do it during a crisis the likes of which the country hasn’t faced in generations, if ever.
The world looks to the United States as the epitome of freedom and these people are doing their best to erase it.
