Fox News reports that leftist darling “Rep. Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., is criticizing President-elect Biden’s new coronavirus relief, arguing that it doesn’t go far enough to help people in need during the pandemic.”
The Covid relief plan will cost the American taxpayer a staggering $1.9 Trillion with an additional $1,400 in stimulus payments to meet the desired $2,000 mark. However, AOC and her socialist nitwits are telling the democrat king that $1,400 is not enough. They say, “$2,000 means $2,000. $2,000 does not mean $1,400.”
AOC isn’t stopping with the demand to increase the original $600 stimulus payments from $1,400 and now $2,000. Rep. Ocasio-Cortez tweeted that “unemployment benefits should be retroactive too.”
According to the report, “in addition to the $400 per week that Biden included in his latest proposal. Biden’s proposal also expanded from $500 to $1,500 the Earned Income Tax Credit.” Retroactive unemployment payments mean that the United States could be sending money to people who “used to be” unemployed but now have gainful employment.
The Democrats are controlled by the small but loud section of socialists that infiltrated their party. Their radical counterparts will control Biden and Pelosi, so bloated Porkulus bills like the $1.9 Trillion stimulus plan Biden proposed will be commonplace.
Their control over the House and Senate will mean that these bills will easily pass. Yes, Americans will get increased direct relief. However, after paying foreign countries a king’s ransom out of the last stimulus bill, Americans cannot afford to spend another penny before the economy is allowed to open fully.
The best stimulus is an open economy. Why did Biden even bother releasing a plan? The future President will sign whatever Congress sends to his desk. The asks from the Democrats will never end. Nothing will satiate their greed. We allowed them to take the keys to the kingdom. The debt continues to go up without any accounting.
We are going to have so much fun spending our endless supply of monopoly money.
