Michigan’s fellow-travelling Rashida Tlaib is really really serious about government handouts.
She has offered to help those suffering (in America) who have been economically and culturally displaced by the COVID-19 pandemic. Who can argue with this? While Bezos & Syndicate exploited our year-long “economic downtime” for more revenue $-zeroes at the expense of Americans, whose income sheets did not boast such expanding fortunes during the same period, the government threw out token checks indiscriminately which negligibly helped individuals while vastly stimulating the collective pocketbooks of the elites.
Like all good globalist lefties, Tlaib and her Squad cohorts, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar and Jamaal Bowman, diverge from the populist path which does seek to help Americans.
(I am strategically highlighting the portion of Tlaib’s gesture which separates her agenda from the American agenda she is presumed to pledge)
Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., a member of the progressive “Squad,” is pushing a bill that would give everyone in the U.S., including undocumented immigrants, $2,000 a month during the coronavirus crisis followed by $1,000 a month until a year after the coronavirus pandemic ends.
Tlaib and Rep. Pramila Jayapal, D-Wash., reintroduced the Automatic Boost to Communities Act in the House of Representatives Tuesday.
Lest you buy Rashida’s grandiose platitudes and crocodile assistance claws, note that her press release avoids two relevant words which shouldn’t be too much to ask for considering we’re handing out trillions of American dollars:
“Americans” or “citizens.”
Her motives are not to serve American citizens (ostensibly Americans), but to override their interests by enabling the global swarm of law-breaking invaders to force this country into acknowledging as their illegitimate home.
Undocumented immigrants who have been in the country for more than three months would be eligible.
I say let’s give them all the money, including those refugees held at border facilities today. It’s the decent thing to do; we can think of it as a special complimentary gift upon forcible entrance to the U.S. After all, everyone deserves a little helpful push.
What’s that, you say? We have actual, honest-to-god American citizens who are not prepared to financially support illegal invaders of America’s borders? Well that is too bad. Tlaib and her Fraud Squad are on top of it.
The ABC Act would be funded directly from the Treasury with no additional debt issued by minting two $1 trillion coins, and additional coins as necessary.
Aside from some perplexing formatting (two 1$ trillion coins ??), the smoke and mirrors masquerade of “look ma, no debt” and the flagrant disdain for American interests, Tlaib and her band of merry exotically-named socialist marauders appear to be on a mission of maximal infliction of pain and misery on the pocketbooks and quality of life of America’s citizens.
We are replacing COVID-19 with the Fraud Squad. Let the real plague commence.
