Hillary's Vast Right-Wing Cons...
A list filled with worthless Democrat priorities:arts funding, set-asides for women and minority business, bailouts for local gov's union contracts, green new deal provisions, funding for stay at home voting, checks to illegal aliens if you can believe it... Their idea is do gradually get these things enacted a little at a time-if not on this bill,then on another. They s/get NONE of them.

Joe Biden has spent his entire life trying to succeed in presidential politics,and now he has. Too bad he’s not there to enjoy it.

The so-called HEROES Act is supposed to help healthcare workers, but it imports foreign healthcare workers to replace American healthcare workers who are being furloughed or fired. It would mandate extension and increase of H-1B visas. It prevents deportation of any illegal aliens or punishment of their employers. Illegal aliens get the same "stimulus" payments that you and I are getting -- people who are not supposed to be in our country!

It mandates ballot harvesting and prohibits voter ID.

It subsidizes bankrupt blue-state governments. it makes lobbyists eligible for small-business loans. It mandates new "diversity" standards. And it sets up a board to research and silence "misinformation" -- i.e., ideas that disagree with theirs.

IN AMERICA!!!!

AND -- it spends another $3 trillion we don't have, on top of the prior $2.2 trillion we didn't have. The only ones who can bail us out are the Chinese, who started this virus in the first place. Are these people insane???

They just passed it, but it's dead in the water in the Senate. Call the Senate to tell them to vote no.

Foreign born workers are 25% or so of our healthcare structure, and we're not talking about janitorial staff. Just a thought to break up the xenophobic ranting.

Other sources make it between 16-18%. I don't see that this stat impacts the need to cut off illegal immigration. Almost half of them haven't completed HS. I have no problem w/using seasonal workers. But bringing their entire families is a financial drag.Don't need them.

A lot of trash in that bill. Illegal aliens from the south s/get a free ride to the border, nothing else. I realize here that I'm VIOLATING New York City law by using that term.Gee, I'm glad I'm not there.

If the Republicans want to show how extreme and anti-American, not to mention perverted the Dems' agenda has become, all they have to do is explain the underside of this bill and others-like the "Equality Act" that have passed the House.The media won't.

Newt Gingrich spells out some of the outrageous items in the Democrat bill. Each of these is aimed at helping her base. And he says the GOP s/publicize this because these provisions w/be opposed by large swaths of Americans.If Americans were made aware of some of this, they w/get a clear picture of what the Democrats are all about and reject them.If the GOP is intelligent enough, it will do exactly that.

Thousands of foreign workers, many of whom don't even live in the United States anymore, received the coronavirus economic stimulus payments from the federal government this month even though they were not technically eligible, Politico reported.

Temporary foreign workers, such as students on F-1 or J-1 visas, may have received the payments due to an error in how they filed their taxes — an error the Internal Revenue Service apparently did not catch in its rush to get stimulus payments out to American individuals and families.


https://www.politico.com/news/2020/...timulus-checks-to-foreign-workers-228974

Quote
College-age workers who spent time in the U.S. in the last two years — some of whom returned home long before the coronavirus pandemic — have been surprised to find $1,200 checks deposited into their bank accounts. And with no clear guidance on how to return it, they’re holding onto the money or racing to spend it before the Internal Revenue Service realizes the mistake.

The incorrect payments were likely distributed to thousands of foreigners in April, said Donna Kepley, president of the tax firm Arctic International who has spoken with dozens of clients over the past two weeks. The error stems from a common tax-filing blunder, particularly for those on F-1 student and J-1 exchange visas. These workers, studying at universities and working summer jobs, often turn to TurboTax and other e-filing systems without knowing that the systems are designed only for U.S. residents.

I still haven't gotten my stimulus money from the first round....I feel bad for Zach and his generation. He's going to live in a different country than the one that we've lived in .Obama ran up so much debt that this country didn't have a chance after he left office.

Trump ran up plenty too, even in the good times.The Republicans have been about as bad as the Democrats, even when they controlled both houses of Congress.

No philosophy gets as much verbal support as fiscal conservative nor is it ignored as much.

When President Bush took office, we had about $4-4.5 trillion national debt. He handed President Obama about a debt just under $10 trillion. President Obama handed President Trump a debt that was right around $20 trillion. Under the Trump administration, we've run up at least $4 trillion or more in debt. We need fiscal responsibility.
