We know that Democrats in D.C. wanted to bail out their allies at the state level.
For decades, liberal governors spent their states into the red. And with COVID, their aggressive lockdowns meant very little tax revenue.
(After all, you can’t tax businesses that you shut down!)
So, Democrats were hoping the federal government would bail them out. That wasn’t going to happen under Trump—so Pelosi refused to support additional COVID relief.
Now that a sleeping old man is in the White House, Democrats are treating the American worker like a piggy bank.
And Chuck Schumer managed to take tax dollars to bail out his failed state.
From Daily Wire:
According to the spokesman for New York Democratic Senator Chuck Schumer, the $1.9 trillion COVID-19 relief package that the U.S. Senate passed on Saturday stipulates enough funds for the state of New York that the state’s projected budget deficit will be erased.
Schumer spokesman Angelo Roefaro tweeted of the “American Rescue Plan,” “Ok. Thanks to @SenSchumer NYS budget deficit for this year is…..Zero, nada, niete, zilch (NY terms).”
Talk about robbing Peter to pay Paul. Schumer made sure that the entire country would be forced to pay for New York State’s bloated spending.
Biden’s disastrous $1.9 trillion “COVID” spending bill includes funds so that New York doesn’t have to be responsible with their spending anymore (not that they ever were).
D.C. will give Cuomo enough money to make his terrible decisions no longer matter. All on your dime.
This is the reason Democrat governors had no problem shutting down businesses for over a year. Because they knew their crooked allies in Washington would write another blank check to save them.
It never occurs to Democrats that this money is coming from somewhere. And when so many Americans are still out of work—where do they think they’re getting it?
Trump scored a major victory in 2017 with huge tax cuts for Americans. But with this new bill, Schumer and Biden are assuring us that—after a year of lost jobs—more jobs will be lost as taxes skyrocket.
But at least Cuomo will get bailed out—once again.
- Biden’s $1.9 trillion spending bill will provide billions for New York State.
- Schumer bragged that New York won’t have to worry about all its debt.
- The state saw little tax revenue, thanks to COVID lockdowns.
