It appears that Americans ought not to expect the Democrats now in charge to make good on their promise to provide economic relief from the coronavirus anytime soon.
Punchbowl News reports that the Democrats in Congress believe that they will not get a chance to pass another economic relief package until at least March.
“In @PunchbowlNewsAM — Democrats do not expect to be able to send @JoeBiden a Covid relief bill until early March,” tweeted Jake Sherman, the outlet’s founder, on Wednesday.
This comes after Biden, last week, revealed a $1.9 trillion coronavirus relief measure.
The plan included everything from financial aid for struggling state and local governments to direct cash payments of $1,400 to individuals to the extension of unemployment benefits to the providing of rent relief, food assistance, and small business aid. It truly is a massive package.
What the package did not do is galvanize Congress. Other than some far-left lawmakers bickering over whether the direct payments ought to be in the amount of $1,400, $2,000, or $2,000 a month, lawmakers have not really said a whole lot about Biden’s coronavirus relief package.
Accordingly, no one really knows when another economic relief package is coming or even if one will. Congress, at the moment, has no immediate plans for one.
Do you realize that you’ve been cheated yet?
This is the type of question that America’s voters will likely be asking themselves throughout the presidency of Joe Biden.
One of the main thrusts of the Democrats’ political campaigning – what likely earned them the presidency and the Congress – is precisely their promise to provide economic relief to Americans.
Now, however, the Democrats have the power to do just that and they are not. Not only are they not providing the promised economic relief, but they are not even providing the American people with a reason why they are not providing that relief.
You know what they are doing instead? Trying to stop former-President Donald Trump from ever becoming president again. The new Senate Majority Leader Charles Schumer (D-NY) said as much on Tuesday.
Will those who vote Democrat ever realize that their leaders repeatedly lie to them in order to get elected?
