(NewsBreakDaily.org) – The Democrats launched what’s bound to be the first shot in a bitter, partisan war of words. Their weapon of choice? A new COVID-19 stimulus draft bill — one that’s over 1,800 pages long and carries a $3 trillion price tag.
HEROES Act or CARES Act 2.0
✅ 1815 pages
✅ $3 trillion cost
✅ 19 days to draft
✅ 3 days to study
✅ No Republican input
A bipartisan pandemic deserves a bipartisan response.
Social distancing doesn’t mean locking all Republicans and most Democrats out of the process.

The proposed legislation was put together without the input of a single member of the Republican party. However, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), aka AOC, and the infamous Squad members are pushing back a bit because the bill doesn’t go far enough. They crafted a letter indicating the bill had to have their $2,000 monthly payment scheme “lasting at least [emphasis added] the duration of this crisis.” While it doesn’t currently mention this, it does contain a round of $1,200 payouts per household member, up to $6,000.
Over in the Republican-led Senate, the response was … less than enthusiastic. The document released by Pelosi doesn’t address issues Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) considers “must-haves,” like protecting business owners from lawsuits once they reopen.
Senate Republicans are preparing a major package of COVID-related liability reforms to foster economic recovery. We are going to provide certainty. If we want American workers to clock back in, we need employers to know they will not be left to drown in opportunistic litigation.

What would a Progressive Liberal proposal be without addressing their pet projects? They’ve been beating the drum for allowing mail-in-voting for everyone, an idea that’s ripe for election fraud. This includes a provision that effectively negates all voter ID laws, mandating that states accept a person’s word that, “I really am a citizen, honest and truly I am!”
It looks like their precious agenda won out over the American people — again.
