As H.R. 6800 is dead on arrival in the Senate, Casten and Underwood vote to pass Speaker Pelosi’s $3 trillion anyway

By a nearly all Democrat affirmative vote, the House passed the massive $3 trillion 1,815 pages HEROES (Health and Economic Recovery Omnibus Emergency Solutions) Act Friday night. The vote was 208-199, with one Republican joining the Democrats’ approval, and 14 Democrats voting with the Republicans against it:

As is normal for McHenry County’s congressional representatives, Congressman Sean Casten and Congresswoman Lauren Underwood voted with Speaker Pelosi for this legislation. Their respective press releases can be accessed:

Given the entire partisan tone of the legislation and while the media has thus far ignored, California-style elections, including the mandate for all election authorities for the November 2020 election to mail out Vote-by-Mail (VBM) ballots to all registered voters, without an application required under Illinois law, is included.

In addition to unsolicited VBM ballots being mailed, the legislation includes a provision for “Ballot Harvesting”. The specifics will be covered in a future article as the provision is on pages 1,469 and 1,470 of the legislation.

For background reference on ballot harvesting, please refer to this RedState article from Friday, prior to the passage of the HEROES Act:

As stated in the title, this bill is dead on arrival in the Senate, and it is anticipated much of the provisions not dealing with the pandemic in this legislation will be dropped. What will happen to the Elections provisions for November elections will be determined.


IL-06/IL-14: House Democrats Pass HEROES Act with Ballot Harvesting Included — 12 Comments

  1. Two of the most vile and dangerous people in Illinois politics today.

    They MUST be cast out.

  2. Yay for hazard pay.

    Considering my hours have been affected.

    I’m working to make less than those already collecting.

    Proud to be an ‘Murican.

  3. This nation, as well as others, is living in a nightmare.

    The nightmare will expand exponentially here in the US, virus or not, if American voters elect Biden and the Democrats retake the Senate.

    Adios, US of A.

  4. Everybody is a hero these days.

    Except white males and white females who voted for Trump.

    Put simply, regardless of specific political affiliations, the political class is currently in favor of spending vast amounts of money right now.

    All of this money has to come from somewhere. Currently, it’s the debt markets (the Treasury will borrow $3 trillion between April and June alone). But at some point, the Powers That Be will begin looking for new sources of capital.

    Once the government/ elites use a crisis to make a massive power grab, rarely if ever is that power given back to the people.

    We saw this with the “Patriot’ Act in 2001, the policy response to the 2008 crisis. And it’s happening again today with the economic shutdown pretexted on a fake ‘pandemic.’ While individual states will all eventually reopen, the fact is that the US just took a massive jump towards outright socialism/ central planning. And they couldn’t get away with it with a Witch like Hillary or Obongo. Trump supplied their ‘cover’ And the political class LOVES it.

    This will result in a collapsing economy, which in turn will mean lower tax revenues, which in turn will mean a greater need for capital to finance social spending programs/ unemployment/ stimulus checks.

    The debt markets will pick up much of the slack here, but at some point the rotten political class will start looking for new sources of capital.

    That source will be you, me and everyone else who is productive, even marginally.

    The plan behind this has been in place since 2011. Elites knew well in advance that another crisis was going to be manufactured, , and they put in place legislation that would allow them to:

    1) Freeze bank accounts and use them to “bail-in” financial institutions/ banks.

    2) Close the “gates” on investment funds/ money market funds to stop you from getting your money out.

    3) Impose wealth taxes and seize unused assets.

    4) Start redistributing a massive amount so the black inner cities don’t go up like Roman candles and spread rape and rapine to other areas.

    Did you know the IMF has already called for nations around the world to introduce a wealth tax of 10% on NET WEALTH as soon as possible?

    If you think that’s bad, consider that the Fed plans to both seize and STEAL savings during the next crisis/ recession.


  5. Not to my knowledge. People were working, economy was strong and my stock values were through the roof. Foreclosures were down to a 10-year low. I was planning on paying off my home in 5 years or less and “retiring” early. No telling what’s going to happen now, but it doesn’t really matter. Just do things one day at a time.

  6. People were working, yeah. But what kind of jobs were created? If I remember, which I probably don’t, but weren’t those mostly service industry jobs with little room for growth? I’d have to look into it again, it’s been a while.

  7. The elite are attacking White people because we are against the new world order.

    We are free, independent thinkers.

    And that’s against their order. They want gubmint dependent slaves, like the blacks and browns so willingly want to be.

    White people, however, want to be free and successful, not slaves like the blacks and browns want to be.

  8. Ah, yes, us poor white people are being attacked — life is so tough for us.

    And those that don’t look like us definitely want to be slaves.

    Cool story.

  9. Yes, Nelson man. You might say we were in a nightmare BEFORE this year of 2020. It was the years of 2009-2016 while the Barak Hussein Obama Regime reigned. These were the years of the worst ever president of the US. Jimmy Carter is an Einstein compared to this community organizer. This worst ever president now has his sidekick, Joe the dufus dementia laden creep, running as a Democrat for president.
