Unconscionable! The Democrat Party of destruction want to bankrupt America, because they believe that will finish President Trump in November. Fortunately this insane bill will die in the Republican controlled Senate. However, that is hardly the point. What if the Left take power in November, the way they did in 2009? Then these kind of destructive bills will pass with regularity, until America is run completely into the ground. The Democrat Party must go down hard in November. No rational American should support the anti-America Democrat Party of destruction in any way. #Trump2020! #GOP2020!
I want every American to understand what Nancy Pelosi's "proxy voting" scheme means:
→ Democrats can stay home for the rest of the year, but still get paid.
→ Democrats can hand their power over to someone else—Pelosi—so she can vote multiple times.https://t.co/6DJReS7Nf6

Pelosi’s $3 trillion 1,800-page bill even has Dems slamming it for giving too much to large corporations. @KendraHornOK said it was filled with pet projects. “Messaging bills without bipartisan support are a disservice to the American people, especially during a time of crisis”

House passes $3T coronavirus relief — the most expensive bill in history
By Fox News, May 15, 2020
The House of Representatives on Friday evening passed a $3 trillion coronavirus relief bill, the most expensive legislation approved in history, that Democrats hailed as the unprecedented response needed to deal with the unprecedented pandemic and economic fallout.
The record-breaking bill narrowly passed by a 208-199 vote. Fourteen Democrats defied their party and voted “no,” while one Republican, Rep. Pete King of New York, broke with the GOP and voted “yes.”
“If you don’t understand the suffering, you haven’t been paying attention,” said Rep. Nita Lowey, D-N.Y., the chairwoman of the House Appropriations Committee.
“The time for action is now. The American people have unprecedented needs and the federal government must step up to the plate [and] provide the necessary assistance to meet those needs,” she said.
Unlike the first four coronavirus bills that passed with overwhelming bipartisan support, this 1,815-page package was drafted by Democrats alone and earned a veto threat from the White House and condemnation from the GOP as a “liberal wish list” that’s dead on arrival in the Senate.
Even House Speaker Nancy Pelosi couldn’t get all her members on board. The most liberal members of the party panned the legislation as not going big enough, while moderate members in swing districts said they couldn’t support vote a bill that was too partisan and costly.
“At a time when our country is in real trouble, we should not be spending precious time on one-sided solutions that aren’t going anywhere,” said Rep. Joe Cunningham, D-S.C.
But most Democrats, some making emotional pleas on the House floor, said Americans need this lifeline — now. They spoke of the more than 85,000 deaths from COVID-19, winding food bank lines in their districts, more than 36 million losing their jobs, and families struggling to make rent as evidence of the need for a historic response.
“Many say this bill is dead on arrival,” Rep. John Garamendi, D-Calif., told members on the House floor. “If we do not move this bill, the deaths will be in our districts.”
Dubbed the HEROES Act, the legislation includes $915 billion in state and local aid that could prevent layoffs of public workers, like first responders and teachers; a new $200 billion “heroes” fund for hazard pay for essential workers; $100 billion for K-12 and higher education and $75 billion for coronavirus testing.
