Squad Dem Complains Trump Did More For America
The Dems have passed a gigantic Corona Relief Bill that is full of frivolous spending. Relief for Americans seems to be a footnote in the bill. But Squad Dem Rep Ilhan Omar is upset about the bill, She thinks it's not enough. She is especially upset that there were caps imposed on the stimulus relief bill checks and that now Trump has done more for Americans than the Dem majority houses.
"Omar’s annoyed here at the income caps that were imposed on stimulus checks a few days ago at the behest of centrist Dems in the Senate like Joe Manchin. Initially the House wanted full $1,400 checks for individual taxpayers with $100,000 or less in income and couples with $200,000 or less before the check amount began to phase out. That got watered down before it reached the Senate to please House centrists, with Pelosi ultimately settling for starting the phase-outs at $75,000 and $150,000 instead. This week Senate Democrats tacked on a new provision adding hard caps of $80,000 and $160,000; if you made more than that last year, you don’t get a check at all."
"Omar seemed to be referring to numbers from the Institute on Taxation and Economic Policy, a left-leaning think tank. An analysis by the group estimated that under the Senate package, 11.8 million fewer adults and 4.6 million fewer children would be able to obtain direct payments than would have been able to under the House’s version.
That’s 16 million people who would have gotten some sort of check from the new bill before the caps were added who won’t get anything now. Which means previous tranches of stimulus passed under Trump’s administration, with a Republican White House and a Republican Senate, ended up pushing out money to more recipients than the current tranche under a Democratic White House and Democratic Senate will.
Which is a little awkward for the so-called party of the working class."

"I see it as a really disappointing development. We obviously are now ultimately sending money to less people than the Trump administration," says Rep. Ilhan Omar on Covid relief.

She is right about one thing, Dems did this, and there is no one else to blame. They control both the House and the Senate, with the help of Harris for tiebreakers. The vaccine is being rolled out quickly with some estimates claiming we will be done with this pandemic by this summer. So this is a little late. But we could have had a Corona Relief Bill last fall, but Pelosi decided that she didn't want to give Trump the win right before the election. So she chose to let Americans suffer just to spite Trump. Trump was offering $2000 an American out of the gate, he just didn't want all of the frivolous spending that Dems demand.
