Porkulus extravaganza – Pet projects in $900 billion stimulus bill

We already know about the $600 checks for each adult and dependent. If you make less than $75K. This time, however, ‘mixed-status’ households where eligible citizens live with illegal immigrants, will not only receive payments – they can retroactively claim benefits after being left out of the last round.

Pork that is unimaginable. Wander over to Zero Hedge for the obscenity. Yet how about us poor working stiffs? Not much… but a special package for illegals.

Pork City:The Most Ridiculous Pet Projects In $900 Billion Stimulus Package

And now, on to the pork… which includes billions to foreign countries, US military weapons purchases which go above and beyond their budgets, $40 million for the Kennedy Center, and nearly $200 million so that federal HIV/AIDS workers overseas can buy cars and car insurance, among other things. Lots of foreign aid. Also included is $453 million to Ukraine, on top of the $400 million Trump eventually released. No word on how much of that goes to the ‘big guy.

Check it out at Zero Hedge

But our gal Nancy has something special for us-

Other than that all is well in the swamp.

    Biden is not even sworn in yet and the Dems are back to their old ways, hopefully Trump is going to veto this!

    Six hundred dollars in my world would just about cover a trip to Costco (if I still shopped there, which I don’t.) As to the vaccine (previous post) – No!

    On the plus side, from my post yesterday (and another today), it seems that at least four senators have woken up to the cries of their constituents who are telling them that the election was stolen. Hopefully, they will take Constitutional steps to fix the most current presidential election and remove it from Biden’s clutches. Still, if you listen to any but Hawley, there seems to be room in their arguments to “fix” it after Trump is removed.

      You know, Cotton was bragging about removing the portion of the COVID relief that compensated the Democrat cities and states, but I haven’t heard him say anything about the election fraud (maybe due to journalistic editing).

      Have any of you heard Cotton say anything on the election?

    Republicans….are we referring to the party of useful idiots or just plain cowards? And had Trump won how long before the next show trials would begin with little of any help coming from the weak kneed GOP if they had retained a majority in the Senate? The party is over, in my opinion.

    Thanks to Nancy Pelosi, and the Democrats a WHOPPING $600 check will be going out to us PEONS. . President Trump Wanted a Whole Lot More….and he was correct in his demands! . Yes, it should have been a lot bigger. But Nana Nancy wanted it her way, and NOT the Right way!. If you want to stimulate the economy and help people $600 doesn’t do much at all…. After all, what is $600. Going to do for us in todays situation? . It might pay ½ of your rent for One month, if you live in the Boondocks, some where in the Sticks… But what about the guy who has had his business SHUTDOWN by some smug Mayor, or Governor for the past 6- 8 months?

    How is he supposed to get the Landlord off his back, or the Electric Company, or the Tax Man? How was he supposed to feed his family?
    How is the family of a a man that put his entire live into building up his business supposed to get along on $600.00?
    Is that what they call the Democratic American Dream? While Nancy Pelosi is getting her Hair don in a fancy San Francisco Salon that was supposed to be Shut down but was made to open up just for her. And then she went home to eat her Gourmet Ice-Cream out of her $60,000 Refrigerator. While you and I haven’t been to a Barber Shop for 6 months!
    And California’s Governor Newsom was in the French Laundry, a VERY fancy, and VERY EXPENSIVE Nappa Valley California restaurant with over 12 people None of them were wearing the compulary Masks, or practicing the social distance policy! He can dine at a $350 per person restaurant at one California’s fanciest, and most expensive restaurants during the worst Pandemic, and Recession in our Countries generation. But you, and I definitely can’t.
    Can you believe this? I can’t.
    And I can guarantee you that Pelosi and Schumer were getting Pay Checks for all these months!
    And the Cherry on the top of this OUTRAGE is that the Members of Congress got paid $130,000 to spend 9 months arguing about whether or not WE DESERVE to get the $600.

    And on Top of all this that 30 year old Ding-Bat Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, get in front of the line to be among the First to get the Vaccine, before the First Responders before the Elderly who are the MOST Vulnerable.

    I give Senator Rand Paul a lot of credit for for saying she should “GO TO THE BACK OF THE LINE” since she’s young and healthy. Senator Paul called it “Unconscionable” that the 30-year-old took the vaccine, when millions of at-risk Elderly Americans are still waiting their turn. And to make matters even worse, she had it photographed and put the photo on Instagram.
    Are you Sick of this Yet?

    This looks more like a Democrat bill than a Republican bill. Of course, the Republicans were congratulating themselves for removing the portion that paid back Democrat states and cities for their largess. Still, with your bit of exposé — who is to say it is not buried in the text?
