In a bit of not-so-surprising news, democrat politicians have decided that during the coronavirus pandemic, they should push a liberal agenda. In the words of infamous socialist Rahm Emanuel, Democrats will “never allow a crisis to go to waste.”
Democrats used their stimulus bill, which was a response to the GOP’s proposal, to pack it with funding to advance a liberal communist agenda.
Both Republican and Democratic senators had spent several days negotiating a nearly $2 trillion package that would provide financial assistance to workers, small businesses, large corporations, and certain industries hit particularly hard by the economic shutdown in response to the public health crisis.
Then Pelosi showed up and declared the package not good enough while touting a number of demands that, at best, were only tangentially related to the coronavirus issue, which prompted Senate Democrats to essentially scuttle the whole thing on Sunday afternoon. –Western Journal
This is really unsurprising news considering that according to The Hill on Thursday, House Democrats held a conference call to discuss both the efforts in the Senate to construct a coronavirus fiscal relief package as well as ideas for a package of their own for the same alleged purpose. And Emanuel was quick to bring back his infamous line:
Speaking during an interview on ABC’s “This Week” on Sunday, the former Chicago mayor and chief of staff to President Barack Obama brought back his infamous quote from the 2008 financial collapse in an attempt to highlight that the government can learn from its mistakes when dealing crises.
“Never allow a crisis to go to waste,” Emanuel said Sunday. “Start planning for the future. This has to be the last pandemic that creates an economic depression. We’re going to have more pandemics, but this has to be the last economic depression.” –Fox News
PATHETIC – Democrats are using Rahm Emanuel's playbook of never letting a crisis go to waste.
Their demands have NOTHING TO DO with helping the American people combat the Chinese Virus – this is about fulfilling their liberal wish list/Green New Deal.

According to Fox News, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is accusing Democrats of trying to extract concessions from airlines over their “carbon footprint,” with the economy hanging in the balance. “They ought to be embarrassed,” he said. “This is no time for this nonsense.”
