IL-14: Underwood Votes for $3 Trillion More

From Richard Rostron:

Underwood all in with House “Heroes Act” bill for $3 trillion of pork spending

Legislation focused on Democrat wish list rather than actual coronavirus relief

Loren Underwood

Rep. Lauren Underwood not only supported the “Heroes Act” but she’s bragging about it.

The legislation calls for $3 trillion presumably for coronavirus relief and was approved last week in the U.S. House of Representatives by a vote of 208-199.

The pork-packed bill is considered dead-on-arrival in the U.S. Senate.

The ‘No’ votes included 14 Democrats, but not Underwood who is ranked as having possibly the most liberal (Leftist) voting record in Congress.

Some members of the House complained that the bill didn’t go far enough while Republicans pointed out that the 1,815-page bill mentions cannabis more times (68 times) than it mentions jobs. The bill would provide access to banking for the cannabis industry.

The bill would provide $1,200 checks for Americans, but illegal aliens would also be eligible to receive the checks.

It would restore the full SALT, State and Local Tax Deduction that was lost by high-spending Blue states when President Donald Trump successfully pushed a tax-cut measure through Congress.

The Underwood Website mentions that the bill “Commits an additional $75 billion for testing, tracing, and treatment” of coronavirus.

Tracing has been identified by supporters of the constitution as establishing the groundwork for a loss of privacy and intrusion in the personal lives of Americans.

It also has measures that, the Underwood Website claims, “Protects our democracy with new resources to ensure safe elections, an accurate Census and (to) preserve the Postal Service.”

But Republicans pointed out that these measures are part of failed legislation introduced by the Democrats in their wish list before the coronavirus pandemic.

This parts of the Democrat legislation make clear that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and the Democrat majority in the House see the COVID-19 pandemic as more than merely a crisis; it’s also an opportunity they don’t intend to let go to waste.

Underwood is with them all the way, no matter what it costs or how long the unrelated aspects of the bill hold up the relief that will actually help people struggling because of the virus.

IL-14: Underwood Votes for $3 Trillion More — 16 Comments

  1. Of course she did.

    She’s a good little puppet for Pelosi and member of the Squad.

  2. The evil Pelosi and her Democrat colleagues are using Ram Emanual’s principle of not letting any crisis go to waste. Whatever credibility she may have had long ago was totally lost when she told her Democrat majority in the House back in the early regime of Obama to pass ACA Obamacare in order TO FIND OUT WHAT WAS IN IT. Democrats are never to be trusted on anything.

  3. Thank you Congresswoman Underwood!

    HonestAbe1: Who is Whitey and what does Whitey have to do with this particular post?????

  4. If I have to explain it to you, you’re too stupid to understand.

  5. Of course she does if the sea hag wants it she will vote for it, more free cheese for all!

  6. Ahhh… because she’s black. Got it now. That went over my head but now I understand. She’s black. Thank you!

  7. Related: 90,000 dead with Depression-level unemployment across the country.

    McConnell has no COVID-19 related legislation on the Senate floor this week, last week, or the week before.

    He doesn’t feel a sense of urgency.

  8. Following is Table of Contents of 1815 Page Pelosi/Democrat HEROES Bill. Extremely difficult to read many parts of the Bill. Some confusing parts include words alien, immigrant and nonimmigrant. Have to wonder how many persons were involved in writing it, how many total man hours involved including the “document review” process to flesh out errors.

  9. Oh wants that free money!

    Gotta make sure the lowly parasites are eternally grateful so that their keepers can retain the vote.

    Some folks today are like cockroaches, feeding on the scraps that are left behind. Underwood is counting on it.

  10. Some Guy –

    Cute name calling aside, the (life long) (Republican) Fed Chairman (appointed by Trump) disagrees with you.

    He gave an interview on 60 Minutes last week and explained that Congress should be spending money right now to help businesses and individuals in order to avoid a prolonged economic crisis.

    Does that make the (life long) (Republican) Fed Chairman (appointed by Trump) a lowly parasite? Does that make anyone who believes the (life long) (Republican) Fed Chairman (appointed by Trump) a parasite?

  11. Underwood has some problems with her resume.

    Like it’s false.

    She was never a real nurse, and let me tell you, she ain’t that bright!

    1.) She said Taiwan is part of China.

    2.) She said BIden was not suffering from early dementia.

    3.) She said the civil war was fought over slavery, and that Lincoln ‘freed the slaves’. He did, but only those in Confederate states, not Maryland or Kentucky, and not in Calif. or on Indian reservations.

    4.) She said Washington DC is “like a state.” Huh?

    5.) She said she only smoked grass ‘a little.’

  12. Underwood doesn’t like men, unless they are coo-coo types like coo-coo-Casten, or money bag funders like Soros.

  13. Oh on ?

    “… (Republican) Fed Chairman (appointed by Trump) disagrees with you.

    He gave an interview on 60 Minutes last week and explained that Congress should be spending money right now to help businesses and individuals in order to avoid a prolonged economic crisis.”

    How do the Fed Chairman’s comments translate to spending that has nothing to do with the crisis?

    How does the Fed Chairman’s comments promote the kind of garbage packed in the inappropriately named ‘Heroes Act’ bill?

    Then answer?

    The garbage in this bill has nothing to do with “a prolonged economic crisis.”

    But you comments prove one thing, you’re as partisan as Nancy Pelosi or Lauren Underwood.

    Shame on you.
