    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi debuted a 1,120-page coronavirus rescue bill after Democrats tanked the Senate proposal on Sunday night.
    The bill includes a wish list of Democrats’ pet issues including:

    1. Increased fuel emission standards for airlines receiving funds and carbon offsets:(1) IN GENERAL. Not later than 90 days after the enactment of this Act, the Administrator of the Federal Aviation Administration shall require each air carrier receiving assistance under section 101, to fully offset the annual carbon emissions of such air carriers for domestic flights beginning in 2025.
      ….
      (1) IN GENERAL. The Administrator of the Federal Aviation Administration shall require each air carrier receiving assistance under section 101 toA) make and achieve a binding commitment to reduce the greenhouse gas emissions attributable to the domestic flights of such air carrier in every calendar year, beginning with 2021, on a path consistent with a 25 percent reduction in the aviation sector’s emissions from 2005 levels by 2035, and a 50 percent reduction in the sector’s emissions from 2005 levels by 2050, applying the standards, recommended practices, and guidance agreed to by the United States pursuant to the European Union Emissions Trading Scheme Prohibition Act of 2011
    2. Payment for up to $10,000 in student loans:(1) MINIMUM STUDENT LOAN RELIEF AS A RESULT OF THE COVID–19 NATIONAL EMERGENCY. Not later than 270 days after the last day of the COVID–19 emergency period, the Secretaries concerned shall jointly carry out a program under which a qualified borrower, with respect to the covered loans and private education of loans of such qualified borrower, shall receive in accordance with paragraph (3) an amount equal to the lesser of the followingA) The total amount of each covered loan and each private education loan of the borrower; or
      (B) $10,000.

    3. Same-day voter registration, early voting, voting by mail, ballot harvestingThe bill includes several provisions on voting laws and regulations, as Democrats argue that the crisis should force the government to revisit voting regulations to make it easier to vote, allowing same-day voter registration and voting by mail, and mailing out ballots to absentee voters. Other voting fraud watchdogs raised flagsabout ballot harvesting and grants for conducting risk-limiting audits of election resultsSame-day registration:
      ‘‘SEC. 325. SAME DAY REGISTRATION.
      ‘‘(a) IN GENERAL.—
      ‘‘(1) REGISTRATION.—Each State shall permit any eligible individual on the day of a Federal election and on any day when voting, including early voting, is permitted for a Federal election—

      ‘‘(A) to register to vote in such election at the polling place using a form that meets the requirements under section 9(b) of the National Voter Registration Act of 1993 (or, if the individual is already registered to vote, to revise any of the individual’s voter registration information); and
      ‘‘(B) to cast a vote in such election.






      Online voter registration:
      (a) REQUIRING AVAILABILITY OF INTERNET FOR VOTER REGISTRATION.—
      (1) REQUIRING AVAILABILITY OF INTERNET FOR REGISTRATION.—The National Voter Registration Act of 1993 (52 U.S.C. 20501 et seq.) is amended by inserting after section 6 the following new section:



      Ballot harvesting:
      (2) PERMITTING VOTERS TO DESIGNATE OTHER PERSON TO RETURN BALLOT.—
      The State— (A) shall permit a voter to designate any person to return a voted and sealed absentee ballot to the post office, a ballot drop-off location, tribally designated building, or election office so long as the person designated to return the ballot does not receive any form of compensation based on the number of ballots that the person has returned and no individual, group, or organization provides compensation on this basis; and ‘(B) may not put any limit on how many voted and sealed absentee ballots any designated person can return to the post office, a ballot drop off location, tribally designated building, or election office.
      Automatic mailing of absentee ballots:
      ‘(A) AUTOMATIC MAILING OF ABSENTEE BALLOTS TO ALL VOTERS.—If the area in which an election is held is in an area in which an emergency or disaster which is described in subparagraph (A) or (B) of section 1135(g)(1) of the Social Security Act (42 U.S.C. 1320b- 5(g)(1)) is declared during the period described in subparagraph.



      Grants for risk-limiting audits:
      PART 8—GRANTS FOR CONDUCTING RISK- LIMITING AUDITS OF RESULTS OF ELECTIONS ‘‘SEC. 298. GRANTS FOR CONDUCTING RISK-LIMITING AUDITS OF RESULTS OF ELECTIONS.‘(a) AVAILABILITY OF GRANTS.—The Commission shall make a grant to each eligible State to conduct risk-limiting audits as described in subsection (b) with respect to the regularly scheduled general elections for Federal office held in November 2020 and each succeeding election for Federal office.
    4. Preserving collective bargaining powers for unionsSeveral provisions in the bill include carveouts for big labor, including labor protections, collective bargaining, and organizing, as well as overturning President Trump’s executive orders regarding federal employee unions.
    5. The expansion of wind and solar tax credits.Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and other lawmakers specifically called out Democrats for trying to negotiate the expansion of wind and solar tax credits in the bill.
    6. Requirements for federal and corporate gender and racial diversity dataThe bill demands that corporate recipients of financial assistance are required to report racial and gender data regarding salaries, number of employees, supplier diversity, and membership on corporate boards. It also requires federal agencies to use businesses and financial institutions owned by minorities or women.
    7. Post Office BailoutUNITED STATES POSTAL SERVICE PAYMENT TO POSTAL SERVICE FUND
      For payment to the ‘‘Postal Service Fund’’, for revenue forgone due to the coronavirus pandemic, $20,000,000,000, to remain available until September 30, 2022: Provided, That such amount is designated by the Congress as being for an emergency requirement pursuant to section 251(b)(2)(A)(i) of the Balanced Budget and Emergency Deficit Control Act of 1985.



    8. Automatic extension of nonimmigrant visas.Rep. Paul Gosar flagged a provision regarding the automatic extension of nonimmigrant visas.(c) Notwithstanding any other provision of law, with respect to any alien whose nonimmigrant status, status under section 244 of the Immigration and Nationality Act (8 U.S.C. 1254a), or employment authorization has expired within the 30 days preceding the date of the enactment of this act, or will expire not later than one year after such date, the Secretary of Homeland Security shall automatically extend such status or work authorization for the same time period as the alien’s prior status or work authorization.
    9. Restricting colleges from providing information about citizenship status(1) INFORMATION.—Only information requested
      On the official 2020 decennial census of population form may be provided to the Bureau of the Census pursuant to this section. No institution of higher education may provide any information to the Bureau on the immigration or citizenship status of any individual.



    10. Money for Planned ParenthoodThe Hill reported that Democrats want the bill to prop up Planned Parenthood, just another reason why bipartisan efforts have failed to reach a consensus.

    At a time when millions of Americans could lose their jobs, Pelosi’s bill includes a measure to automatically extend nonimmigrant work visas.

    Bill 2 to help the small business. Duke that out later!

    Bill 3 to help Corporate business. Choke on that after passing Bill 1 and Bill 2.


    3 SEPARATE BILLS.

    3 separate issues.


    No Pelosi Pork and no Rino Pork that has nothing to do with this virus!!!


    We are sick and tired of trillions of dollars of debt on our backs to pay for their damn "we have to pass it" --- "to see what is in it" bloated pork Bills.


    We have a Foreign Aid budget Congress can transfer that money to pay the people! We worked for it, we earned it, it is our damn money NOW give it to us!

    These foreign countries want "aid"? They can quit fighting, quit breeding in a mud puddle, and work for their own aid!

    McConnell: Democrats Holding Up Coronavirus Relief over Solar Panel Tax Credits

    March 23, 2020

    Sean Moran
    2:11
    Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) said on the Senate floor on Monday that Democrats continue to stall the emergency coronavirus relief package for solar panel tax credits and other leftist provisions.
    “They’re continuing to hold up emergency measures over tax credits for solar panels, tax credits for solar panels,” McConnell said.

    McConnell said, “Tax credits for solar energy and wind energy, provisions for employees to give special and new treatment to big labor? And listen to this, new emissions standards for the airlines. Are you kidding me? This is the moment to debate new regulations that have nothing whatsoever to do with this crisis?”
    He continued, “I’d like to see Democrats tell New York City doctors and nurses, who are literally overrun, that they are filibustering hospital funding and more masks because they want to argue with the airlines over their carbon footprint?”


    Democrats blocked a coronavirus package on Sunday that would have provided immediate economic relief to American workers and businesses suffering from the impact of the coronavirus outbreak.
    “Eleventh-hour demands Democrats have decided are more important than Americans’ paychecks and the personal safety of doctors and nurses,” McConnell added.


    The Senate Majority Leader noted that many Democrats told him privately that they were embarrassed by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer’s (D-NY) decision to block the coronavirus bill.


    McConnell said that Democrats “ought to be embarrassed, Mr. President. In fact, I’ve heard from some who are embarrassed, talking like this is not some juicy political opportunity.”
    “This is a national emergency,” he added.


    “I’d like to see Senate Democrats tell seniors who have seen their hard-earned retirement savings literally melt away as the markets track toward their worst month since 1931,” McConnell said.

    Report: Democrats Using Coronavirus to Push Unrelated Leftist Agenda


    March 23, 2020


    Penny Starr
    AP/Evan Vucci

    Political commentator and columnist Guy Benson said on social media Monday that Democrats are hoping to install their leftist agenda through legislation the Senate is considering to help America weather the coronavirus storm.
    “Via senior GOP aide, Schumer/Pelosi now pushing these demands amid pandemic-fueled economic collapse:



    1) Unprecedented collective bargaining powers for unions
    2) Increased fuel emissions standards for airlines
    3) Expansion of wind and solar tax credits
    Benson continued, “Source writes, ‘not only are these completely unrelated to the coronavirus epidemic, they could prevent companies from participating in the loan programs altogether—directly causing unnecessary layoffs.’”


    Benson also highlighted what House Majority Whip James Clyburn (D-SC) said recently:


    He went on to draw attention to his weekend “flashback,” writing, “‘This is a tremendous opportunity to restructure things to fit our vision,’ Majority Whip James Clyburn (D-S.C.) told lawmakers, according to a source on the call.”

    Nancy Pelosi Coronavirus Relief Bill Demands Racial, Gender Diversity from Corporate Recipients

    March 23, 2020

    Charlie Spiering
    Alex Wong/Getty Images


    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi pointedly rejected a coronavirus rescue package on Sunday, vowing to release a bill of her own.

    A 1,400 page early draft of the bill already made the rounds in Washington, DC, on Monday and includes a provision that demands every corporation receiving coronavirus rescue funds report data on racial and gender diversity.
    The text of the bill reads:

    COVID–19 Aid Oversight Panel, in conjunction with the SIGTARP, shall collect diversity data from any corporation that receives Federal aid related to COVID–19, and issue a report that will be made publicly available no later than one year after the disbursement of funds.

    The data demands supply crhains include minority and women-owned suppliers, pay equity for women and minorities, as well as diversity on their corporate boards and among employees.

    (1) EMPLOYEE DEMOGRAPHICS.—The gender, race, and ethnic identity (and to the extent possible, results disaggregated by ethnic group) of the corporation’s employees, as otherwise known or provided voluntarily for the total number of employees (full- and part-time) and the career level of employees (executive and manager versus employees in other roles).

    (2) SUPPLIER DIVERSITY.—The number and dollar value invested with minority- and women-owned suppliers (and to the extent possible, results disaggregated by ethnic group), including professional services (legal and consulting) and asset managers, and deposits and other accounts with minority depository institutions, as compared to all vendor investments.

    (3) PAY EQUITY.—A comparison of pay amongst racial and ethnic minorities (and to the extent possible, results disaggregated by ethnic group) as compared to their white counterparts and comparison of pay between men and women for similar roles and assignments.

    (4) CORPORATE BOARD DIVERSITY.—Corporate board demographic data, including total number of board members, gender, race and ethnic identity of board members (and to the extent possible, results disaggregated by ethnic group), as otherwise known or provided voluntarily, board position titles, as well as any leadership and subcommittee assignments.

    The bill also requires federal agencies to report to Congress their actions to increase the use of minority-owned banks and credit unions.

    (2) REPORT TO CONGRESS.—Not later than 2 years after the establishment of the program described in subsection (a), and annually thereafter, the head of each Federal department or agency shall submit to Congress a report on the actions taken to increase the use of minority banks and minority credit unions to serve the financial needs of each 13 such department or agency.
