Democrat Lawmakers Call On Stimulus Payments

( Democrats once again intend to take advantage of the COVID-19 pandemic to advance their radical socialist agenda, with dozens of House lawmakers following far-left Rep. Ilhan Omar in a push for recurring stimulus payments.

The payments, which would effectively be a form of Universal Basic Income, would grant individuals living in the United States with an Individual Taxpayer Identification Number a recurring payment from the government.

Not citizens, but anybody with a tax number…meaning illegal aliens would be included.

The radical left-wing lawmakers wrote a letter to President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris explaining that they are “appreciative” of their administration’s work to ensure that Americans receive another “survival” check soon.

They failed to recognize the fact that there is no such check on the way (yet) and that the administration has done little other than sign executive orders that destroy American jobs so far – namely by ending the Keystone XL Pipeline project.

Nonetheless, the lawmakers added that they believe the Biden administration must now take “additional unprecedented action” by granting recurring cash payments. They claimed that it would offer a “longterm lifeline to struggling Americans for the duration of this deadly pandemic.”

They even cited “worsening systemic inequities.”

Not inequalities, mind. That’s what the Democrats used to care about. They said inequities, which means differences in outcome.

Remember when the media would say calling Democrats “communists” was just an exaggeration? Not any more.

“Both the CARES Act and the recently enacted relief package included a round of direct cash payments which provided critical relief to those who needed it most. Data show the CARES Act payments were the primary reason that poverty fell by as many as four million people at the start of the recession,” the letter reads.

“Recurring direct payments until the economy recovers will help ensure that people can meet their basic needs, provide racially equitable solutions, and shorten the length of the recession. As we look at the coming year, another one-time round of checks would provide a temporary lifeline, but when that money runs out, families will once again struggle to pay for basic necessities,” it added.

Rep. Omar was joined by Reps. Ayanna Pressley, Jamie Raskin, Ro Khanna, Rashida Tlaib, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, as well as the latest member of the “Squad,” Cori Bush.

We can say with certainty these days that COVID-19 has absolutely helped left-wing radicals advance their agenda…
