Schumer And Pelosi Try To Add Fuel Emission Standards For Airlines, More Wind And Solar Tax Credits To Coronavirus Stimulus Package

(Breitbart) – House Speaker Nancy Pelosi debuted a 1,120-page coronavirus rescue bill after Democrats tanked the Senate proposal on Sunday night.

(B) $10,000.

3. Same-day voter registration, early voting, voting by mail, ballot harvesting

The bill includes several provisions on voting laws and regulations, as Democrats argue that the crisis should force the government to revisit voting regulations to make it easier to vote, allowing same-day voter registration and voting by mail, and mailing out ballots to absentee voters. Other voting fraud watchdogs raised flags about ballot harvesting and grants for conducting risk-limiting audits of election resultsSame-day registration:

‘‘SEC. 325. SAME DAY REGISTRATION.

The Hill reported that Democrats want the bill to prop up Planned Parenthood, just another reason why bipartisan efforts have failed to reach a consensus.

Read the legislation below:

  1. So people starving to death aren’t as important as people dying from Coronavirus. So people dying from flu isn’t as important as people dying from Coronavirus. Let’s get back to work and stop all the damned foolishness.

  2. All the stuff the Democrats added was a distraction from what was really voted on
    We the tax payers are not the recipients
    Of the wealth that was distributed. I am sure we would be very unhappy if we actually knew

  3. While ALL of the items included by the Democrats are questionable, some more so than others, the most controversial appears to be #3, the one pertaining to the vote! Pelosi, Schumer, and all those other petty oligarchs must think the rest of us are fools or worse, and that they can convince us to come around to their way of thinking…MAYBE WHEN CONCLUSIVE SCIENTIFIC EVIDENCE IS PRESENTED WHICH PROVES BEYOND ALL SHADOW OF A DOUBT THAT HELL HAS FROZEN OVER, THAWED OUT, AND FROZEN OVER AGAIN!

  4. HEY CONGRESS : DO NOT, I repeat DO NOT PASS THIS LOADED DOWN BULLSHIT OF A BILL WITH THIS IRRELEVANT PILE OF POLOSI PORK – THIS B I T C H (my SINCERE apologies to all female dogs ) IS TRYING TO BLACKMAIL US – U.S. TAX PAYING CITIZENS ONCE AGAIN . This crazyass senile REPLICA of Joe BIDEN HAS TO GO !!!!!!!!!!!

  5. What does THIS garbage have to do with coronavirus? . . . Tell Senile Nancy and Upchuck Schumer to STICK with the ISSUES. No Socialist/Communist PROGRAMS allowed! They BOTH should be LOCKED UP for TREASON and SEDITION anyway. Team Trump and his allies 2020.

  6. Seems to be the only way they can get the tax monies for their projects is to “amend” legitimate proposals. The Democrats and media have wasted 3 1/2 years doing nothing but trying to destroy OUR nation. Obviously, this is their last available opportunity to destroy US. I personally can make it without the stimulus, if necessary. I hope President Trump vetoes the bill and makes a prime time address to the nation and shows all who would vote for theses thieves, what their trying to do.

  7. Peloski and Schumer The God of Abraham,Isaac and Jacob and the One True Living God is the one that will remove two wicked evil anti Christ anti Americans from our lives. I pray you Repent before it is to late. We all must repent. God’s Love for us will arise and overtake. Alleluia to the Lamb that was slain for All

  8. Would someone please inform the American People of WTF is wrong with the DUMBOCRAP leadership? We have Americans dying thru no fault of their own and the DUMBOCRAP leadership is trying this CRAP.

  9. Two sickening, anti American useless eater/breathers. I haven’t seen or heard one positive thing coming from either of these flunkies for the last 3 years. They and their cringe worthy subordinates are nothing more than an anchor to the robust economy and problem solving administration of president Trump. I almost feel for the folks living in their respective districts … however, these folks did vote the two rodents into office.

  10. The ‘POLITICAL TYPHOID MARY TEAM OF PELOSI/SCHUMER, CONTINUE KILLING PEOPLE WHEN THEY CAN’…..On one hand folks are getting sick, dying and losing life savings, while asshats like these two pillage the country…

  15. The negotiations were going very well until PELOSI and her crowd returned from recess and blew everything up They should not have been in recess in the first place while the country was facing a crisis, Now that she has stuck her face in everything has to start over, Her proposed bill has nothing to do with the relief package she has thrown in some of her pet projects and they should be rejected and any bill that is passed should not be loaded with legislation that has nothing to do with this relief package for the American people If the final legislation is loaded with pet projects the President should VETO IT and inform the American people why he vetoed it

  16. REPREHENSIBLE…talk about taking advantage….sheesh. if anyone every votes to keep these D-bags in office they need to have their head examined.
    the demonrats are truly evil people.

    • Mark , they’re typical progressive liberal trash you know ? They’re attracted to another mans income and assets , this Is the way they operate.

      Progressive liberal trash voting for progressive liberal trash is a horrible cycle which needs to end don’t you think ?
