Earlier this week it was discovered that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi stuffed the Democrat House version of the coronavirus bill with $300 million in spending on illegal aliens. And now, the Senate has agreed to add another $50million on top of that.
Late on Wednesday the U.S. Senate passed its version of the bill that upped Pelosi’s ante for illegals.
On page 817 of the 880-page Senate bill, is a call for “an additional amount for ‘Migration and Refugee Assistance’, $350,000,000, to remain available until expended, to prevent, prepare for, and respond to coronavirus.”
No word on why the Senate increased this wasteful, unnecessary spending.
The Senate voted unanimously, 96-0, to pass the bill. Four members were not present because they were in self-quarantine with the virus. The bill now goes to the House and then to Trump’s desk where the president is expected to sign it.
The Democrat leader said that she intends to bring the bill up for a vote in the House on Friday. Pelosi also said it will be brought to the floor on a voice vote which does not require the presence of all members — many of whom are back in their home states currently.
Pelosi is already warming up a left-wing shopping list filled with extreme ideological measures that she wants to stuff in the next bill.
Those far left-wing measures that have nothing at all to do with responding to the coronavirus include millions for unions, welfare, and more free money to big cities (all of which are controlled by failed Democrat regimes).
You know the Democrat motto: never let a good crisis go to waste.
