While the Senate was in session to hear impeachment arguments, the House of Representatives quietly passed the Biden stimulus bill, complete with $200K payments to Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer, and $25K for all other reps and senators.
In the bill, the payments are listed as required under budget act 5618, written in 1793, which states that all public subsidies must be received tenfold by the leadership and twofold for the rest.
The statute, which has been long ignored but never repealed, is also responsible for that time Obama handed $400 billion in food stamps to people living in cities, knowing it would all go to Democrats.
Pelosi and Schumer say they get to use it because Trump spent so much money golfing. According to the Congressional Budget Office, they’re not wrong:
“Trump spent nearly $400 million golfing on the taxpayers’ dime, so the CBO is ok with these payments”
That was newly appointed chair of the CBO, Joe Barron, who was the chief of staff for disgraced Democrat Al Franken.
The package will still pass the Democrats and they’ll cheat it through the senate by calling it “budget reconciliation.”
While the package may put $5-$10K in the pockets of average Americans and stories with no merit, sources, or facts in them are the only ones confirming huge payments to Congress, we as Trump-loving Americans should be outraged and denounce socialism at all costs.
Refuse your checks, Patriot, until Pelosi and Schumer refuse theirs!
God Bless America.
