Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer refused to work with Republicans, even as calls for police reform echoed across the country.
Schumer and Senate Democrats rejected Sen. Scott’s police reform bill—despite the fact that Democrats claimed they wanted to do something to save lives.
What is Schumer doing now? It appears he’s trying to buy minority voters’ favor with a massive spending bill:
Senate Democrats on Thursday released a $350 billion plan to tackle “systemic racism” and “historic underinvestment” in communities of color that have been hardest hit by the coronavirus pandemic and economic downturn.
The Economic Justice Act calls for 10 major investments over the next five years to help communities of color with child care, health care, jobs programs, infrastructure improvements and housing assistance.
With a candidate as weak as Joe Biden on the ticket, Democrats fear that black and minority voters won’t show up in November. Biden made it worse when he insulted black voters, saying “you ain’t black” if they supported Trump.
All the recent commotion from BLM appears to be an attempt to distract from Biden’s poor track record on race relations. Democrats are trying to win back black voters’ favor with empty promises of defunding the police and “reparations.”
This “economic justice” bill put forward by Schumer is a veiled attempt at buying black Americans’ votes. He and his Democrats are trying to take $350 billion to pay for child care, health care, jobs programs, infrastructure improvements, and housing assistance.
Notice, it does not include school choice or incentives to bring businesses and jobs to minority communities. Instead, Schumer is proposing more government handouts to a group of Americans already burdened by welfare.
Schumer appears to be thinking he can bribe black voters into backing the Democrats. Yet this proposal will not lift anyone out of poverty, but once again force Americans to be dependent on the federal government.
By doing so, Democrats appear to be saying that black Americans (and other minorities) are unable to succeed in American by their own efforts. Without the government dolling out support, they’d be lost. Sounds like Democrats have a very low opinion of black people, doesn’t it?
If Biden wins and Democrats eliminate the filibuster rule, bills like this could quickly become law. Americans will have no say in how the left recklessly spends our money. They are making the stakes for this election crystal clear.
- Chuck Schumer released a $350 billion “economic justice” bill in the Senate.
- The bill aims to dish out endless government benefits for black and minority Americans.
- It appears Schumer is eager to burden minorities with more government handouts, rather than lift them out of poverty.
