After Democrats have taken weeks to decide on a stimulus package and prevented Congress from providing more relief and, President Trump took action.
He signed four actions to reduce payroll taxes, extend unemployment, and provide assistance for rent and student loan payments. Trump used these actions to put American citizens first. The D.C. swamp, as you can imagine, was outraged.
But among the liberals who slammed Trump was “Republican” Ben Sasse.
He criticized Trump’s measure as an abuse of power and way out of his jurisdiction as President. Well, the Democrats weren’t getting the job done so Trump took action. When RINO Sasse complained, Donald put him in his place:
President Trump on Monday lashed out at Sen. Ben Sasse (R-Neb.), accusing the senator of having “gone rouge” after he sharply criticized the president’s executive action over the weekend aimed at providing coronavirus aid in lieu of a congressional deal…
Sasse on Saturday decried Trump’s series of executive actions that unilaterally sought to extend enhanced unemployment benefits, defer payroll tax collection and offer assistance on rent and student loan payments as “unconstitutional slop.”
Sen. Ben Sasse criticized Trump’s measures to help Americans suffering during the COVID pandemic, calling the actions “unconstitutional slop.”
Trump fired back, reminding the “Republican In Name Only” that it was his endorse than helped Sasse win his Senate seat.
He said Sasse needed his support and endorsement just to get nominated. Now, the senator has “gone rogue” and appears to be siding with swamp-dwelling Democrats.
Trump said Sasse will only play into the hands of the “Radical Left Dems.”
Americans are already wondering why Democrats and other D.C. insiders are so quick to attack Trump’s measures.
They only appear to help American workers, students, and employers. Perhaps it’s because these lawmakers were more interested in helping blue states and big businesses?
The recent COVID package was delayed, partly because Democrats wanted to spend over a trillion dollars to bail out Democrat-run states.
These states may have been hit by the virus, but they also were in debt long before the pandemic.
Blue states have the highest taxes, but also the most debt, thanks to bloated government programs, out-of-control pensions, and general waste.
It seemed like Democrats in D.C. wanted to use COVID as an excuse to bail out these states. But why would Sasse join in their fight?
Perhaps it’s because Trump’s measures don’t hand out bailouts to big businesses. The Paycheck Protection Program was designed to save small businesses but was used by big companies like a piggy bank.
Maybe Sasse wanted some cheddar for his buddies in special interest groups? Maybe he wanted to push a bill that gave trillions to globalists, but nothing to Americans?
We can’t say for sure, but it is pretty unusual for a Republican to slam the president (just months before the election).
But how do Americans feel about Trump’s orders—that directly help them? I have a feeling they don’t agree with Sasse at all.
