The largest stimulus bill in American history just passed Congress in an effort to stave off a possible economic crisis in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic.
But according to Breitbart’s Charlie Spiering, the Democrats attempted to pork up the bill with more than a few absurd items.
It’s infuriating to see public servants attempt to ride pet projects into legislation under the disguise of fighting an unprecedented crisis, but fortunately for American taxpayers, the GOP caught six of them.
The list of sneaky Democrat pet projects, as compiled by Spiering, is as follows:
- Money for Planned Parenthood
- Green New Deal
- No Strings Funding for States
- Federal Mandates for Early and Mail Voting
- Postal Service Bailout
- DHS Funding Restrictions
It isn’t uncommon for politicians of either side of the aisle to try and toss a little extra in a bill to help out their constituents, but in these days of fighting COVID-19 and attempting to save the nation from a crisis of health and economy, this pork should put a bad taste in your mouth.
